Oh! A What We Do In The Shadows reference!

Hidden Target -- Netflix's absolutely brainless, stupid Jackie Chan movie with John Cena is totally worth it! Elderly Jackie still delivers. The movie feels like classic 80s Chan. And John Cena is weirdly magical paired with Jackie.

Old fashioned slow-burn pacing? For sure. Melodramatic? Absolutely. But I was wrong on guessing the killers of both movies.

Also, Branagh the director doesn't get nearly enough credit as Branagh the actor. He really does a fantastic job of acclimating you in space / environment. Like you know where characters are going to /moving through as they go from place to place.

Anyway, I'm super stoked for Haunting in Venice in a few weeks.

A Haunting in Venice is more of the same if you liked the other two Branagh / Poirot movies. Lush and dark, and vaguely "supernatural." I liked the way this one twisted around.

I hate the other ones. And slavishly watched them, as I will this one.
