I like that thought :)

I haven't seen MOTOE but They borrowed the name of Pilar (from Hercule Poirot's Christmas) so maybe there'll be more nods to other AC works?

Excellent version of a classic story with Ken Brannagh doing a great turn as Poirot and as director .
He brings the usual quirkiness to the role as well as added nuance,depth and physicality which is welcome.
The rest of the actors do good work as well. I want to see again :D

It was an enjoyable film. I think only thing I thought was cheesy was they "last supper" imagery with the suspects.

I still haven't seen the film in full.

I've seen bits of it on YouTube in a "Everything Wrong..." video and based on what I saw it looked messy and unappealing.

Also I'm still not sold on Branagh playing Poirot.
