I'm watching "Hitchcock's The British Years box set " at the moment .
It's well worth a watch this film if your a fan of Hitchcock , truely a facinating bit of film history .

I'll have to go look for it. I saw North By Northwest again a week or so ago, and it knocked me out. Hitchcock's one of those guys whose construction and artfulness are so solid that his films often get better with repeated viewings.  :)

Remembering Paul Newman in Exodus










I can spot one a mile away.

Would you mind looking into my eye? It feels like a cinder.

Dana & Geoff
I think this Hitchcock box set is brilliant  you get 10 films .
 The Lodger ,The 39 Steps ,Sabotage,Young and Innocent ,The Lady Vanishes and Jamaica Inn , have all been digitally restored the picture and sound quility is superb .
I only had a copy of 39 Steps on DVD prior to this release , so i'm seeing these films for the first time in many years .
I watched The Lady Vanishes yesterday afternoon and i must say the restoration of this film is outstanding , last time i saw this on TV it was such a bad copy it was so grainy and scratched , but this version has brought the film back to life , this 70 year old film now looks and sounds wonderful .
The Lady Vanishes i think is one of Hitchcocks best films the acting ,script and directing are fantastic you can see why Hollywood wanted him , it's a masterclass in film making Margaret Lockwood and Michael Redgrave the leads are every bit as good as Cary Grant and Grace Kelly in the Hollywood films in my opinion , they just sparkle in every scene .
There are some great extra's also inparticular the "Aquarius " documentery Alfred The Great which is a 60 minute film of Hitchcock on the set of "Frenzy" you see Hitchcock in 70's London directing this film , he's also interviewed at length in the studio about is life and films and  it's in colour .
I bought this collection at HMV for 25 pounds , which i think is outstanding value .
Well worth the money .(smile)(thumbsup)

^ That's only about 50 dollars. The 39 Steps is a fine film I saw years ago when I was in college, and you're the second person whose told me to go see The Lady Vanishes. Have to get off my arse and go look.  :)

I've just watched Hitchcock's "The Lodger" Geoff can't describe how impressed i am with this silent masterpiece , the people who have restored this film have done a brilliant job , it's one of the most haunting and sinister films i ever seen .
Some stills from "The Lodger" it's simply stunning (thumbsup)

Shrooms
The familiar old horror story yet again: a few young, good looking people go camping in the woods and get slaughtered one by one. They tried to give it a twist by adding the fact that one of the women ate some kind of magic mushroom which enables here to see all the murders before they actually happen. But that can't change the fact that it's basically still the same old story and not even one of the better versions of it.

Now this is a great movie. I've seen a whole lot of horror movies, but this was definately one of the scariest ones. I'll admit that I sometimes turn the sound off when a movie gets really scary (they're always subtitled anyway), I think that in total I had the sound off for about 10-15 minutes during this movie... It's Spanish, but don't let that be a reason to not go see it. It starts off with a female TV reporter, Angela, and her camera man Pablo who follow a couple of local fireman during their night shift. That night they get locked up in an appartment building where some really weird things are happening. The entire movie is made as if it's filmed by Pablo, so you really get the feeling that you're trapped in the building with these people.

Very good hooror movie!

Agree.The end brings you a different point of view about the reality of the story but it does not save the script.

There will be blood.
This completely baffled me. I like movies that go outside the box and this was wonderful to look at and listen to. But it lacked a hero, everyone was a villian, people come and go and so many threads were left untied. From what I could see it wsas neither a story of fall from grace or redemption. The critics loved it, but then they would. Strange.

Not good, not too bad... The story is mediocre and the movie looks like it was made for TV... Even though it wasn't...

Chicago
It's a great movie. Even though I always miss the first 10-15 minutes, it has really catchy songs and I love the time frame it's in.

I`ve seen This Is England on DVD. About skinheads, terrible. The only thing I find strange is that Shaun throws the flag of England into the water and it sinks. What does that mean?

Across The Universe.

Cute movie. Most of the covered songs were slowed down and were boring. They did, however, did justice to some of the songs. The plot was great, and the actors were, too. And Joe Anderson, who plays Max, is some major eye candy!
