"4.50 FROM PADDINGTON" (2004) Review

I have been a major fan of Agatha Christie's 1957 novel, "4.50 From Paddington", ever since I was in my teens. In fact, I consider it one of my top ten favorite Christie novels of all time. So, it is not surprising that I would approach any movie or television adaptation of this story with great anticipation. Read more... )

"THE BUCCANEERS" (1995) Review

Several years ago, I had anticipating watching for the first time, "THE BUCCANEERS", the 1995 television adaptation of Edith Wharton’s last novel. After all, I have been a major fan of "THE AGE OF INNOCENCE", Martin Scorcese’s 1993 adaptation of Wharton’s award-winning 1920 novel for years.

"CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER" (2014) Review

If I have to be perfectly honest, I do not recall the initial reaction to many Marvel fans, when the studio first released the news of the upcoming release of the second Captain America film. I do recall various comments regarding the first one - 2011's "CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER". The comments for that film ranged from mediocre to box office disappointing. I found the latter opinion odd, considering that movie made a considerable profit at the box office. And besides . . . "CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER" proved to be a favorite of mine from 2011.

With one more season of "AGATHA CHRISTIE'S POIROT" left with David Suchet as the famous literary Belgian detective, I thought it would be nice to rank some of the series' feature-length movies that aired between 1989 and 2010. I have divided this ranking into two lists - my top five favorite movies and my five least favorite movies:Read more... )
