Branagh takes on Agatha Christie (again), Craig Gillespie revisits the GameStop stock rush, and Gael Garcia Bernal dons tights and make-up in a Mexican wrestling biopic.
I loved Branagh‘s Much Ado About Nothing. I thought he and Thompson absolutely nailed it.
It’s the only Shakespearean comedy that I actually enjoy, though. I’m way past the age where I feel the need to pretend that A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a lot of fun to watch for the thousandth time. Fuck Puck.
Three awesome, well-written reviews this week guys. I especially love Scott's assessment of Branagh's Poirot project and his screen persona overall.
"Branagh is a showman. Often a bit of a ham."
One could in fact say that he enjoys the occasional swim in the river of ham.
Have y’all overlooked ROTTING IN THE SUN, or have I missed your review? One of the year’s best.
