It used to be renovating shows now it seems to be decluttering shows are the in thing and Iím hooked. Last year we watched becoming minimalist this year Consumed and Tidying Up with Marie Kondo.

I have so much stuff and no need for most of it, itís all going. Selling, donation, whatever it takes. 😎

This hasn't aged well. Like Doug mentioned about dated dialogue and some scenes did bring unintentional laughs. The hysterical woman in the restaurant screaming, "You're the devil" and the look on Tippi Hedren's face as the fire was going from the car to the gas station.

Overall, not a favorite of mine.

Should we rate all the films we've seen in the challenge?

For me it would be from best to worst:

Rebecca
North By Northwest
Psycho
To Catch A Thief
Rear Window
Strangers On A Train
Shadow Of A Doubt
Sabotage
Notorious
Spellbound
The Birds
The 39 Steps
The Lady Vanishes
Marnie

You didn't swipe it ... They give them away when you buy a program. You're supposed to use it to keep score!

Never let the facts get in the way of a good story. ;D

I wonder if I'll come across the programme? Would a Yankees programme from May 17, 2014 be worth anything?

I was cleaning out the attic today and came across this. I must have swiped it from Yankee stadium back in May 2014. Good size pencil for golf. 8)

I went in feeling this was going to be bad but I was pleasantly surprised. Emily Blunt is no Julie Andrews but I found the film to be good fun. Great song and dance numbers through out and lots of familiar faces in the cast including a couple of golden oldies. My favourite number was the Meryl Streep song "Turning Turtle".

4/5.

Oh, those mozzies! I understand they're so big down there you could throw one on the barbie and make a meal of it! With some vegemite, of course.

Yep, theyíve been known to carry young children away in their beaks!! ;)

Yes, mosquitoes with beaks. Itís a hell of a sight. :D

20 days until The Mule is released down here.

I'm surprised I've made it this long without coming across anything on the web about it. Of course as soon as I see a pic of Clint or anything Eastwood related, I scroll past.

I've avoided all the posts here on the board in the news forum about the film too since it's release. That's tough to do.

It's like a mozzie itch! :D

One of the things that I'm noticing from some of these Hitchcock movies is that actors of that era, like Cary Grant and Jimmy Stewart, had a charisma and a presence that I don't really see in todays younger generation. Eastwood also has it too, but does anyone agree with me about that? Can you think of a younger actor working today that has that?

Yeah, I agree. It was a whole different world back then. Most men these days wear suits for weddings and funerals only. Women are wearing less and less each year. They just don't have the same class about them.

Also, has Hitchcock ever explained why he does those blink or you'll miss it cameos in his films? I find it to be distracting. I'm glad Eastwood doesn't do that. Are there any Hitchcock films where he has any dialogue?

I don't mind the Hitchcock cameos. Eastwood did one in Breezy and who knows maybe he has done more? The Hitchcock cameo in To Catch A Thief is a little weird though. He doesn't even acknowledge Cary Grant, just staring blankly ahead.

SPOILER ALERT:






This was fun. I was convinced the real Cat burgular was Grace Kelly and it was a surprise to me when it was revealed who really was the culprit. AKA mentioned Grace's driving and it is a little eerie watching that scene.

Only one more film to go!!!!
