For about the tenth time and it is still a great film. Full of plotholes but still eminently watchable.
Yeah, that's a great flick. What plotholes are you talking about though?

Concerning classic vampire mythology for one, and Keifer Sutherland learning Michaels name even though he never told him.

A better word should be inconsistencies but these are small gripes. It is still a damn good film and the soundtrack is a classic of 80's pomp.

Yeah, I love that soundtrack. "Cry Little Sister" is classic!

My first Alfred Hitchcock movie, ever.....yeah, I know.

Anyway, I thought it lived up to all the hype it's ever received anytime and anywhere. The acting was superb, especially from Anthony Perkins. He was so naturally deviant it was disturbing. The shower scene didn't really get me because, well, we all know it's going to happen, but the part that really scared the crap out of me was when
Spoiler for I know you've all probably already seen it, but...:
"mommy" came storming out of the room and sliced Arbogast.

Holy crap, I almost fell off the chair when that happened. And the whole scene where the camera is focused on her eye and then pans out...how hard must that have been to film?
I love it, everything. The acting, the subtleties in the dialogue and story and certain set placements.
Awesome movie. A++

I have to say Vertigo never really did it for me. I vote North By Northwest, The Birds or Dial M for Murder instead!

It was really bad. Steve Carell had a couple moments where he was funny, but over all not all that enjoyable.

That looked funny to me, but then again... so did Date Night. And that was pretty much a dud (besides the selling point of just being a decent dumb comedy to see at the theater with your friends).
