Re: Grey's Anatomy - "this may have just discredited any movie opinion I have henceforth."

Hey, Roger Ebert WROTE 'Beyond the Valley of the Dolls' and folk still listen to Him.

I actually dug 'Beyond the Valley of the Dolls' I mean it wasn't perfect, or great, but it was definitely different and interesting.

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 25, 2012 6:22:08 PM PDT
Yeah, it's a well liked film, especially around here.

I think Q and I are the only Ammy frequenters who aren't fans.

One day I'll make up some daiquiri's, roll a fat one and give it another shot.

Well the Revolver movie would be Spellbound. Both for the Visual Pun and the scene where the revolver revolves.

Candlesticks play a role in I Confess, if I remember correctly.

I'm not sure if Lead Pipe or Wrench play a significant role in any Hitchcock films. A car is sabotaged in Family Plot, but you don't cut a brake-line with a wrench, and it's clearly a Plumbling wrench in Clue

Might as well. I kinda liked it better after it was over and I thought about it a little. May be one of those that gets better over time. The guy/girl whats-his-name was my favorite character. He made the movie at least tolerable.

Sloany, I wouldn't take you as a daiquiri kinda guy.

Is it coz I is made of beer?

There's another Carlton Draught ad that i reckon captures the Oz beer lifestyle to a T. At about the halfway point, a bloke taps his mates beer, making it froth - my mates say he reminds them of me. They reckon I kinda look like him, but mainly it's the cheeky look he gives that reminds them of me.

Und here it is...

I'm not really a daiquiri kind of guy...but I did drink my fair share of mai tai's the last time I was in Hawaii.

Very underrated, well worth a re-watch. Hope you enjoy it.

>"To Catch a Thief"<

Every time I resaw it, the luster faded that much more, and it seemed less sophisticated than it was silly. Not a bad movie by any means, but 2nd-rate Hitch for me.

>"Spellbound"<

Dullsville. Some people like it best of the '40s. Even the Dali dream sequence seems forced and pointless. Bergman's always worth watching. That's my excuse for seeing 'Gaslight' 4 times.

As you may have gathered from my voting, 'Young and Innocent' is my favorite among those you hired out for the week. It's like 'High Sierra' is, pure entertainment - a guy, a girl, a car, chasing down their fate. The ending is one of my favorite in the whole Hitchcock canon.

'The 39 Steps' is a strong second-place for his cross-country chase flicks, or tied with 'North by Northwest for that honer. Great movie. The first confirmation that Hitchcock was the greatest action director of the '30s. Mr. Memory is a pip.

'Blackmail' -- important in the Master's career, and for Britain: it was their first sound film -- and just a really good movie. It holds up. Try to youtube the sound test with Anny Ondra, if you haven't seen it already. Hitch was always a naughty, naughty boy:

http://www.hitchcockwiki.com/wiki/Blackmail_%281929%29_-_Sound_Test

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zl6SMOSXa7A

'I Confess', that's one I need to re-see myself! I remember I liked it. Exceptionally atmospheric shoot in Canada, if I recall right. It's been awhile.

'Rebecca'. Handsome movie, it's got it all, but doesn't know quite what it wants to be, genre-wise, drama-wise. It shows more of David O. Selznick's influence than other Hitchcock's of the '40s, and that's not necessarily a good thing.

'Dial M for Murder'. I wouldn't mind seeing it in real 3-D, if the occasion arose, out of historical curiosity. I have no other reason to want to see this stiff again.
