I thought Justice League was fun. I'd place it behind Wonder Woman for the best DC live action films.

I also watched Murder on the Orient Express a few days ago and enjoyed it as well. Just having read the novel I knew what to expect, but it was a pretty good adaptation. Of course some things were ramped up for the drama of the movie.

Yes, that's just one thing...(I wonder why they did that like that?) KC knows even more little things that make this point even more! He said it was discussed before here (Posted), but I cant find it. Maybe you can , if you want to delve into it deeper.

Here's one post where I talked about the poncho "discovery":


... The three films certainly were not planned as a cycle or trilogy from the beginning; but since A Fistful of Dollars was so wildly successful, it demanded first one and then a second sequel, or perhaps I should say ... successor. Since The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is set during the Civil War, if it is connected to the other two at all, it would have to be considered a "prequel," rather than a sequel, because the others both were set a decade or more after the war's close (evidenced by the weaponry in use and by the dates on the tombs in A Fistful of Dollars, among other things). 

However, about the only concrete evidence other than Eastwood's person that GBU has some connection with the other two is Eastwood's acquisition of his costume as we recall it from the first two films ... He picks it up piecemeal during the course of the film, getting much of it from Angel Eyes when he's released from the prison camp, and finally completing his "look" when he takes the poncho in the scene with the dying soldier near the end. Also, though his gun is a period-correct Navy model Colt (anachronistically modified to fire metal cartridges), it already has the silver rattlesnake ornaments on the grips that we recall from the "Peacemaker" he carries in the first two films.

In Sudden Impact, he also wanders into a town, unknown to the locals, and leaves after (helping to) avenge a crime whose perpetrators had escaped justice.

Well, that is interesting to note, but I feel he is Jim Duncan at the end. Though, it is the first time since the trilogy he played a character that wanders into town unknown to anyone.

They're both the fourth installation of Clint's most famous characters:  Harry Callahan, and The Man With No Name (stretching a bit on this one, since Stranger isn't the same person as MWNN, but he is a no named stranger in a western setting -- right up to the last moment on screen anyway).

I was assuming he would ask first, without gun in hand! ;D

I'd imagine if you approached Mr Eastwood carrying a rifle, you might be welcomed with taser.
