My first Poirot experience. I went into this movie with fresh eyes, I have not seen any other adaptations of this story, nor have I read the book. I personally love Murder Mystery novels, I just simply have never gotten around to the Agatha Christie classics.
Okay, so before you go all Cersei Lannister on me – hear me out. I am a fantasy fiction fan. Dragons? Love them. Magic tales? Yes please, I’d read them 100 times over. I have read Lord of the Rings more times than I’d care to count, Terry Pratchett makes my sides aches from laughter, and don’t even get me started on Harry Potter, as I would just never stop. However, somehow Games of Thrones leaves something to be desired.
