What Movies Are You Watching Lately - Page 572
^^ right on for the Hitchcock comment, his films are all pretty much totally amazingly brilliant, timeless and beautifully shot.
Watched From Dusk til Dawn for the first time in years last night with someone who had never seen it. Man, Tarantino really had fun with this one. The film is blatently divided into two parts. There is a bit of a good vs evil theme...the bad guys become the good guys, the hot women become disgusting, the minister who doubts God... Extremely entertaining visually, but the neverending vampire battle scene goes on forever... Still, Worth a watch, and not "scary" as a vampire movie, but very gore for about half an hour at the end...
Bone-chilling Cold War thriller from '64. Great cast. Awesome, long scene without any cuts, the first time Peter Fonda as the US president is on the phone with the Soviet premiere, with a young Larry Hagman as his interpreter.
Next up, the Stephen Frears made for TV re-make from 2000, with Clooney, Dreyfuss, Dennehy & Keitel.
