Two more Hitchcock:



A bit weaker this one IMO, but still solid.



This one on the other hand, a masterpiece.

Moments of this were alright, but overall it was long an uneventful:

Hitchcock's second version of this story changes a lot of the plot details from the 1930s one but keeps the basic premise and some scenes intact. I found it the better one overall, easier to follow.



Top tier Hitchcock. 



Hitchcock's return to UK cinema for his penultimate film is another gem, IMO. Easily his most extreme movie.



A bit more up and down than most Hitchcock films for me, but I ultimately really liked this one.



Revenge thriller. It starts off more like a drama then starts to get grittier as you realise the title character's true intent. Then it all falls apart toward the end when she doesn't follow through with her plan. Then the actual ending sucks and leaves too many questions unanswered.

I feel anguish at having watched this. Bored within the first 15 minutes. Only saw it through because it doesn't even clock in at 90 minutes. I really need to learn to avoid unknown horror movies with no known actors in. Hardly any of them are worth the time it takes to watch them.

Very good psychological crime thriller. One step closer to seeing all of Christopher Nolan's work. 



New holder of the title for the oldest film I've seen. Also John Wayne's first major role. Very impressive western for 1930.

The Fritz Lang classic. Still good, almost 90 years later.

A Little long, but pretty entertaining, and very dark for a Superman movie, but I enjoyed it:

^ Most of the DC Comic movies haven't worked for me. As a huge fan as a kid none of them bring my childhood experiences to life. However Marvel has done an excellent job. I didn't care for that one so much but then again i haven't liked any of the Batman movies. They just don't cast the actor right.

This cat and mouse thriller goes on for maybe 20 minutes too long, but is overall enjoyable.

Another Fritz Lang. A film noir gem.

It's official, I bloody love the original film noir movement. Another excellent movie. 

Though watching this one was kinda weird as my late grandfather was a dead ringer for Humphrey Bogart.

Enjoyable but didn't resonate with me as much as it's reputation would imply.
