There are six installments of the Poirot Movie Collection, almost all including three movies based on Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot mystery novels. It's very easy to portray Poirot in a way that his eccentricities dominate the story and make him seem more or less rediculous, when in fact Christie has been loved over many decades for her unusual lead detectives (male and female), diverse characters, plots, and unique way of writing. They may seem dated now in terms of the era(s) in which they are set, but I find this a significant part of their charm. In terms of the story lines, they remain absorbingly diverse and creatively conceived. The renditions here are the best I have seen.
