Death on the Nile, Kimi – Cinemaholics Podcast

The real mystery behind Kenneth Branagh's 'Death on the Nile' is whether or not we really disagree as much as it sounds in our review.

Who’s dead wrong about Death on the Nile? That’s right, Kenneth Branagh is back as Agatha Christie’s acclaimed Hercule Poirot, and he’s also back as director of this star-studded cast featuring Gal Gadot, Armie Hammer, Annette Bening, and plenty more. We open this week’s show with some brief catchup on films like Blacklight, I Want You Back, and Marry Me. And we finish things out with a review of Kimi, Steven Soderbergh’s new paranoia thriller starring Zoë Kravitz, which is now available to stream on HBO Max.
