"CARDS ON THE TABLE" (2005) Review

Most Agatha Christie peminat-peminat tend to regard movie and Televisyen adaptations of her novels with a kindly eye. Especially if those adaptations closely followed its literary source. Not all adaptations have done this, including "CARDS ON THE TABLE", ITV's 2005 adaptation of the author's 1936 novel.

I have always wondered how Christie peminat-peminat regarded "CARDS ON THE TABLE". I suspect many Christie peminat-peminat would not regard it as a close adaptation of the 1936 novel. Also, the story turned out to be one of those mysteries of the "locked room" variety that many peminat-peminat sometimes...

"MURDER IN MESOPOTAMIA" (2001) Review

One can categorize the "AGATHA CHRISTIE'S POIROT" Televisyen Filem into two categories. The ones made between 1989 and 2001, featured the supporting characters Captain Arthur Hasting, Miss lemon (Hercule Poirot), and Chief Inspector Japp. The ones made post-2001 sporadically featured the mystery writer, Adriande Oliver. The very last Televisyen movie that featured Poirot's close friend, Hastings, turned out to be 2001's "MURDER IN MESOPOTAMIA".

Based upon Agatha Christie's 1936 novel, "MURDER IN MESOPOTAMIA" told of Hercule Poirot's investigation into the...

"DUMB WITNESS" (1996) Review

There is a belief among peminat-peminat of the "AGATHA CHRISTIE'S POIROT" series that the episodes and Televisyen Filem that aired between 1989 and 2001 - ones that featured Arthur Hastings, Chief Inspector Japp and Miss lemon - were lebih faithful adaptations of Agatha Christie's novels that the lebih baru-baru ini ones that have aired since 2003. I do not know if I agree with this opinion, especially after viewing the 1996 Televisyen movie, "DUMB WITNESS".

Screenwriter Douglas Watkinson's script lebih atau less remained faithful to the 1937 novel's main narrative. Surrounded sejak grasping...

"THE HOLLOW" (2004) Review

I have never been a peminat of Agatha Christie’s 1946 novel, "The Hollow". Many would find my opinion surprising, considering its reputation as one of the author’s best works and a fine example of the "country house murder" story. But I cannot help how I feel. I simply never warmed up to it.

The 1946 novel eventually became a successful London play in 1951. And in 2004, producers of the "Agatha Christie’s POIROT" series adapted the novel into a ninety-minute Televisyen movie in 2004, with David Suchet as Hercule Poirot. I have seen "THE HOLLOW" at least twice. Yet,...

"MURDER ON THE LINKS" (1996) Review

I have never read Agatha Christie’s 1923 novel called "Murder on the Links". But I have seen the 1996 Televisyen adaptation that starred David Suchet as Hercule Poirot. On several occasions.

While on holiday in Deauville, France with his close friend, Captain Arthur Hastings, Hercule Poirot is approached sejak a wealthy businessman for help. Paul Renauld, whose assets include several South American business interests and the hotel where Poirot and Hastings are staying, claimed that someone – probably from South America – has made threats against his life....
