Notorious (1946)

Pretty insipid Hitchcock film that even with the great cast of Bergman, Grant and Rains couldn't save.

5/10


I CAST THEE OUT!

Lol I love Hitchcock films and that cast, but I just thought this was slow and boring and it was lucky to get 5 out of 10!

Also you couldn't have picked a better pic to post as I admittedly do look a lot like Homer!

I look a bit like Reverend Lovejoy as well.

Except I wouldn't be caught dead in a pink t-shirt.







Or a protestant church.


Joking. Joking.


I support all churches of Christ. No matter how blasphemous.

The Lost Weekend (1945)

Powerful and tragic film about the depths an alcoholic will go for one drink. Bit dated perhaps, but with an excellent script and acting throughout this is definitely worth a watch.

8.5/10

Don`t Look Now
Creepy thriller by Nicolas Roeg with Donald Sutherland in the lead part. Roeg uses editing and flashforwards in a brilliant way to create a spooky and desorienting atmosphere.
For a very long time as a viewer you don`t know exactly what`s going on and you`re more or less a partner with Sutherland`s troubling character. That stay`s that way until that very memorable ending.

The picture quality of the UK blu-ray by the way is not good at all. Often the picture is way too clean and Sutherland and Christie look like dolls: the DNR ghost has arrived here again. On the other side there is, especially in the darker scenes, a big amount of DNR to be seen. It`s that combination that makes this release close to unwatchable...

7,8/10

The 39 Steps (1935)

(Gonna get grief again here! ) Another slowish Hitchcock film for me with this one, they all seemed to be going around in circles in it; the finale was pretty good and I didn't see it coming, but the pacing was off I felt. Will give the Fifties remake a go too to compare, though they are different directors.

This film by Leo McCarey (Make Way For Tomorrow) gets its home-video debut thanks to Masters Of Cinema, right onto blu-ray. And for that we can thank them on our bare knees. What a gem this is!

The story about a butler, played by Charles Laughton, who is the bet in a poker gamble and is "lost" by his boss to an American is for the biggest part a comedy but has dramatic parts in it as well. It`s a story about humanity and hope, about class differences (wich Laughton hated in real life) and going after that would you really want. Indeed, a story about The American Dream.
In the middle of that is a brilliant scene in wich Laughton, as Englishman, recites President Lincoln`s historic Gettysburg Address to a bar full of Americans. That is the best scene of the whole film and gave me goosebumps all over.
A film that gave me a big smile on my face and left me behind with a wonderful and joyous feeling.

The Masters Of Cinema blu-ray is one of brilliant quality, with a transfer that is almost right up there with their City Girl release.
A must-own.

9,0/10

^^ You have piqued my interest here, going to need to seek this one out; always liked Laughton anyhow.

Managed to grab a copy, and your right, it was a fantastic film with Laughton on fantastic form effortlessly moving from brilliant deadpan and playing a funny drunk, to a man who finds out who he is and wants to be - it was a wonderful performance from him. This was a good old-fashioned morality and class tale, and though its a bit sentimental for today's audiences perhaps, it wasn't for me; and it was a joy from start to finish.

9/10 also for me.

The Apartment.

It had been on my 'must see' list for years but never got round to it but had it from Lovefilm based on Empire's 'Masterpiece' review.
What an absolute joy. If you've seen it, you'l know what I mean. If it's on your list, make it a priority because this film craft from the top table.

9/10

Good to hear that you liked it as well! Thought it wasn`t too sentimental either, loved it

Much more like it from Hitchcock, this is a fantastic film, full of wit, great twists and shocks throughout, and fantastically shot. Great stuff, enjoyed every minute of it!!

This is a sadly neglected part of the forum that I rarely venture into, for some reason. It reminds me I need to watch more old films.

I watch more older films now than I do new releases; I just prefer them these days.

Not been watching films of any kind this week or two though as I'm making my way through Jeremy Brett's Sherlock Holmes series' (was there ever a better Holmes?).

Gojira (Godzilla)
The mother of all monsterfilms has a slow start. Therefor I didn`t really like the first part and it took a while for me to get into the film. The second part of the film on the other hand was really good. With, especially for that time, great (miniature) effects and a story that even has some drama in it and is a good complaint against atomic- and other weapons of mass destruction.
I am curious though how the Americanised version, wich is also featured on the Criterion blu-ray release, will work out.

8,0/10

Curse of The Crimson Altar (1968)

Pretty dull affair about witchcraft, not much to say about it.

3/10

The Devil Rides Out (1968)


An old favourite of mine, I used to watch this regularly as a kid as my dad had it on VHS (anyone still remember those?). This is a cracker about black magic and sorcery, with the gorgeously-voiced Charles Gray playing the villain. Hardly a dull moment throughout and even though the effects aint great, it can still be pretty scary at times. Very highly recommended.

9/10
