I've quite enjoyed the two Branagh/Poirot films too, to varying degrees. Nothing outstanding, but solid, handsome 'old fashioned entertainment. I really enjoyed the first Doyle score. It had some very strong moments. I didn't enjoy the second film/score quite as much as MOTOE, but there were still some fine moments in DOTN as well. I look forward to this third adventure and the material will be less familiar to me this time around.
