My Thoughts On...

  Goodread's Summary:  "What more can a mystery addict desire than a much-loathed murder victim found aboard the luxurious Orient Express with multiple stab wounds, thirteen likely suspects, an incomparably brilliant detective in Hercule Poirot, and the most ingenious crime ever conceived?"

  IMDB's Summary:  "When a murder occurs on the train he's travelling on, celebrated detective Hercule Poirot is recruited to solve the case."

  My Summary:  "A bunch of people stuck on a train with a dead body.  A good ol' who-dun-it?"

I finished the book yesterday afternoon & watched the movie right afterwards so the book was fresh on my mind.

I saw the movie preview while attending one of the Harry Potter films on a Wizarding Wednesday & just knew that I needed to see the movie but only after reading the book.  I remember reading And Then There Were None when I was a Freshman in high school & really enjoyed it so I figured that I would enjoy this book just as much & I did.  I thought it was well written & although it was written in 1934, it was still enjoyable nowadays.

The movie was just as good.  There were only three things that I noticed different from the book but nothing that would turn me off from the movie.  I was just so excited to get to the end of the movie to see how they brought out the killer.  So good.  I also thought the casting was very well done especially "my dad" aka Johnny Depp.  My mom likes him so whenever I see him, I call him "Dad".  Ha!

Murder on the Orient Express' Book Rating:
Murder on the Orient Express' Movie Grade:


  1. I've seen this book mentioned a few times recently so I thought it was new haha! I appreciate your succinct summary too. And I had no idea it was also a movie. I really like it when they keep the movie similar to the book. I'll have to check them out!

    1. Yup, the book was written in 1934, there was another movie in 1974 but I have not seen that one. I may have to check it out as the cast looks incredible - Sean Connery, Lauren Bacall, Ingrid Bergman, etc. If you check the book &/or movie/s out, you'll have to let know what you think.

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that tonight after work, I'm gonna pick up some din-din for my sister & I & then we're gonna play some old school Nintendo games on her projection screen.  Awhoo hoo!  I am so happy that my sister is back home!  :)

I am thankful...for Stan Lee.  I know that I've probably said it before but this guy is pretty dang amazing with the Marvel characters & stories that came to be from his mind.  I just wish that I had that kind of brain to think up all the crazy things/beings he does.

I am thankful...that in four weeks, I'll be in Las Vegas.  Just me & my hubby hopefully catching a few shows, winning some dough & having some good grub.  We'll for sure be seeing Love by Cirque & then I wanna get him tickets to either Cris Angel or Penn & Teller as a birthday gift.  I tried talking him into seeing Britney but he hasn't caved yet, I'm hoping that he will cuz if I get to see Britney, it would be amazing cuz I love her!

I am tha…

It's Wednesday So That Means...

So, back in the day, there was a linkup about weekly lessons.  I really liked it but since it has crumbled & the linkup is no more.  :(  I really liked doing it so I'm going to continue doing it, join me!
I've Learned...that when Sunshine gets an attitude with me & I make her go to her room & rethink how she speaks to me, she comes down ten minutes later & is sweet as pie.  I even got three "I Love Yous" from her in a span of about thirty minutes.  Ha!  
I've Learned...that I need to make another attempt at the Grand Mac from McDonald's.  I tried to do it last week but did not finish it (I finished the fries & the apple pie though).  That was not good enough for my grandfather so I need to have another go at it so I think that since it's just me & Sunshine again tonight, we're gonna pick up McDonald's again & give it another shot.

I've Learned...that once the weather warms up, even if just for a lil bit, I think Spring…
