    1. Not sure why that posted as "Unknown," it should say my name John.

    1. Fabulous! Thanks for signing up, and particularly with The Heartbreak Kid. (There's a remake?!)

  7. I am really excited to read the articles on “Murder by Death” and “The Cheap Detective”. These movies remind me of Agatha Christie’s novels. These books have been my favourite ever since I was a child and watching these detective films makes me feel really nostalgic. 
