They're all on my netflix queue now anyway. "Dial M for Murder" is available for instant streaming.

Just watched these two:

A pretty good zom-com. Billy Connolly plays Fido the zombie. Love him.


This is my third time watching this one. Katharine Hepburn's performance always amazes me. I don't remember crying so much the first couple times I watched it though. :\

I watched that one not that long ago with my wife and it kind of made us laugh how the two of basically never touched each other or ever acted like a couple at all throughout the entire movie. Even in a supposedly anti-racist movie back then it was apparently just too scandalous to have them acting like a normal couple. Still a good movie though.

That Guess Who romcom with Ashton Kutcher that was inspired by that movie was awful.

it was pretty bad but come on...it had Bernie Mac in it....that made up for everything else about it, imo.

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++
one of my all time favorite movies....just a friendly heads up...you need NEVER see thew Gus Van Sant shot for shot re-make....i died a little on the inside the day that came out

North By Northwest is such a bad-ass film....everything about it is awesome....i also suggest checking out Spellbound and Rope....both are amazing examples of just how good Hitchcock really was


simply amazing....much more intense than i thought it would be....and just striking on the eyes

Not Spellbound, dude, time has not been kind to that one...even Hitch didn't look favorably on it later on. :\

Well, since everyone is recommending Hitch films, I must say my favorites beside Psycho are definitely Vertigo, Rear Window, Rope, Rebecca, Shadow of a Doubt and Frenzy.

@ nonsubmissivewife

Since you liked Psycho very much I'd like to recommend you another masterpiece from the same year, but not from Hitchcock: Michael Powell's Peeping Tom (that is if you haven't already seen it). It is generally regarded that these two films have had a great influence on a 'serial killer genre'. But, regardless of that, they're ****ing great films that transcend genres.
