"Murder by Death I think this movie is a spoof of the various murder mystery stories that were popularized in novels and cinema. I think it aimed mostly at spoofs of Agatha Christie characters. "

Favorite Movies, Genre? what's that? (83 movies items)

"The quintessential murder mystery movie (spoof) with one of the best casts I've ever seen. If you know your classic detective literature (Chandler, Christie, Stout) you will love this movie."

Movie Diary - 2011 (505 movies items)

"13.7.2011 Dekkareiden ystäville suunnattu hupailu, jossa erilaiset etsivätyypit kokoontuvat illalliselle. Peter Falk on joukon mainioin kovaksikeitettynä jenkkidekkarina. Lisäksi Alec Guinness naurattaa sokeana hovimestarina. Peter Sellers kiinalaisena sen sijaan koettelee useimmiten hermoja. Tarjoaa joitakin koomisia oivalluksia ja hyvää dialogia. "

"I love David Niven. There's something about him that brings me a feeling of comfort or nostalgia for something I can't put my finger on. And how could I not like this movie staring all my favorite fictional detectives. Plot: Five famous literary detective characters and their sidekicks are invited to a bizarre mansion to solve an even stranger mystery. Fav Quote: "You've tricked and fooled your readers for years. You've tortured us all with surprise endings that made no sense. You've introduc"
