anyway, great performance of Natalie Portman

Saw the next night a horror and cannot even remember the title. This one anyway was about a psycho paperboy who murders people. LOL What impresses me in these movies is how the female lead keeps staying in the house with murders, break ins, etc. I would have been long gone, myself


I remember that paperboy film I think - it was terrible, right? Smile

Yes, Psycho just has so much in the way of trailblazing too - and not just for showing the toilet flushing - which I think was just as difficult for Hitch to get past the censors as anything else in the film
Shocking to say the least. The best part of the film was when it said "The End". That is the one where the daughter moves into the house after her alcoholic father is found dead at the bottom of the basement steps.
 
Psycho is an absolute classic. I like how Hitchcock shot it when she first takes off with the money. It would not be the same in colour. Raging Bull is another. Black and White films are not appreciated by the youngies today. We had to watch them because everything was black and white on television when I was a kid. Still don't know how I watched sport in black and white. That is one thing that colour improved.

Did you see Hollywood version or original Swedish one? I saw both and there is quite a big difference between them - I liked Swedish much more
I got the Hollywood one Slava. I have heard the Swedish is better. Aren't most of the European originals anyway. Hollywood make great movies but they can get a bit generic at times. Still it was good but I would like to see the original.

The last movie I watched on big screen (last week) was "Two Days In New York" - Woody Allen-influenced European film about NYC (or how Europeans see it)LOL

Just re-watched Pyscho & Dial M for Murder back to back. Anthony Perkins does do a good job indeed

Re-watched Social Network again last night not so much for the plot but for the excellent soundtrack by Trent Reznor.  Clever dialogue in that flick is intriguing, as well.

Saw Super 8 last night. Must have have been good because I was still awake at the end. Best train crash scene hands down. Thumbs Up

I caught "The Tourist" the other night and it was okay as a light diversion flick.  However, Angelina looks like a million bucks in every scene.  She's always a knockout but whoever dressed her for this one knew what they were doing.  Yowza!  Sax man

Semi-recently saw The Return by Andrei Zvyagintsev and was gutted at the end. Still a beautiful film, however. Wouldn't call it a Thriller, though it is psychological, but there is probably just as much of the feel of a family Drama too, if a bleak one.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOH boy, this was a strange one...

Following on from my Darren Aronofsky phase, The Fountain. Fantastic film actually, I'd recommend it.
