How is this one Colin? One of the ones I've not managed to see yet from Carpenter.

Worth seeing.  Not quite horror.  I was surprised to see Alice Cooper (the musician) plays a minor acting role

Third time seeing this gem. Very Tarantino style movie.

4th in the boxset. I think out of all the re-watched Hitchcock's this one is currently in the lead.

5th in The Hitchcock boxset. One of his more usually films (for him). It's enjoyable but not the most re-watchable. Lowest rated from this set so far for me.

Wasn't overly enamoured by this Werner Herzog film (I much more enjoyed Aquirre, Nosferatu the Vampyre and especially Fitzcarraldo) but it has enough quirky bits (especially the ending) to amuse me.

Number 6 in the Hitchcock set. I wasn't so keen the first time around but I enjoyed this one a lot more on second viewing. I hope the same is true of Vertigo (next in line) as I originally found that one good but not living up to the extreme hype.

A couple from yesterday I didn't post:



A noir gem. I just picked up the Masters of Cinema blu-ray collector's edition to replace my DVD copy. 



An intriguing 60s sci-fi. Although I predicted the end before it happen, unfortunately.

Adam, my opinion is that Vertigo ends up on a lot of lists just because critics think it's Hitchcock's most obtuse/analyzable movie.  Definitely a good film but not my top Hitchcock either.

Event Horizon (1997)

visually nice, but in general the premise/story is better than the execution here

I liked some parts of this one, but in the end it was pretty generic sci-fi/horror.
