    Apparently some people are upset at the fact that there is a black actor in it (gasp! although I notice that the ads for the film on the side of the bus that went past me today showed the guy with a much lighter skin tone), who apparently plays a doctor. But everyone knows that no black person has ever trained as a doctor....

      it’s difficult to convey that you meant something humorously in a piece of text

          I won't bother seeing it at the Cinema, I was going to, but there's not much point, I've been told it has the same ending as the original...

            Not seen the film, but from the clips I've seen Branagh appears to have shot it in the rare fifteen foot wide carriages with the five foot wide corridors. If he ever gets to do Death on the Nile, no doubt his boat will be wider than the river.

              I've heard this film (with its fifteen foot wide carriages) is being shown in the US on a 3D screen.

                  ^ In the U.S.A.

                          Sorry, I thought my Google skills were well honed, but I drew a blank. I do know that they've done a run of 70mm prints, but no mention of 3D.

                          Never mind, I'll try again later.

In fact, I'm pretty sure much of Christie gets slightly modded for each new film or TV series anyway.
                            Sorry, but what does ''mod'' and ''modded"mean?

                                Thanks. I didn't know the verb ''to modify'' had been modified to "to mod".
