The CEWB Movie Club / Re: Rear Window (1954)

That poster makes it look like Miss Torso is in danger!

AKA, you mention the slower pace of these movies compared to what's out today or during our time, but did you like the film? Has anyone seen Disturbia, a 2007 thriller with Shia LaBeouf? It's about a teenager on house arrest who believes his next door neighbor might be a serial killer. It was obviously compared to Rear Window when it came out.

I haven't seen anything like that often at my apartment complex... in college I heard some interesting things at my apartment complex.

I also like that Raymond Burr has an important role in this. He doesn't have to do a lot here, but he really had great onscreen presence (check out an episode of Perry Mason, for instance).

That's probably close to the same cheap set I have of Hitchcock's early films, Doug. I can't remember if it was earlier this year or last year that I watched the 1930s version of The Man Who Knew Too Much for the first time, but I liked it.

Eastwood News / Re: THE MULE: Production Information and News

Warners can release the film at any time in 2019, and a summer release would be even more likely to make money than a December release would be. Opening it on the same weekend as "Spiderman" is clearly not designed for maximum box office impact, since "The Mule" can't possibly beat a tentpole comic book release at the box office.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is an animated film and not likely going to be a huge hit, or at least not as big as the other Marvel films have been.

Here's one link I found mentioning the release day: http://collider.com/clint-eastwood-the-mule-release-date/#images

So I take it that must be for wide release? That'll be nice to see another Eastwood movie before the year is up.

I haven't seen the show but I read the novel years ago in college. I enjoyed the book quite a bit (which was published in 1985).

Oh, and I just remembered that I've seen the 1990 movie version, which I also liked.

Frenzy is a top 5 favorite for me. O0

I've always found Kelly's Heroes to be a really fun movie. It would be my favorite out of those three.

I'd figured you might. I think I own all of those movies--now it's just to find them! :o

Fun schedule. I'm surprised no one mentioned Shadow of a Doubt. I thought about it--it's one of my favorites.

There must be a thing with Christmas movies and colorized versions. My DVD of the 1951 Scrooge also has a colorized version included along with the original black and white. I've never even looked to see what the movie looks like in color.

I'm not sure offhand if I've ever seen Sabotage. I don't have a rating for it on IMDb, but of course I could have seen it before I had my IMDb account.

I was thinking about mentioning Strangers on the Train, but Gant took care of that one.

I've mentioned my top 5 numerous times, so maybe I'll go outside that list.

I'd be interested in chiming in about some of these movies. But we're not going to do Hitchcock movies from the 1960s or 1970s? (And I realize there's only two movies he did in the '70s) Or do you mean when you switch to just classic movies?

I mentioned in the first post of this thread that Vertigo is my favorite Hitchcock movie, and that's still true. I LOVE the punch in the gut ending.

I remember the first time I watched the movie was shortly before Jimmy Stewart died, which would place that in 1997. I liked the movie then, but it wasn't until I was in college and watched the movie three times to write a paper about it that it became my favorite (and that would have been around 2003). Yes, Stewart's character falls in love awfully fast, but watching him become unhinged just isn't something you'd typically expect from one of his characters. Of course Stewart wasn't afraid to get a bit dark with some of his roles, and he pulled it off wonderfully in Vertigo. It's my favorite performance from Stewart.

He did a spaghetti western called Navajo Joe too, which I remember thinking was an OK movie.

Monday night I went to a 20th anniversary screening of the Japanese animated movie Perfect Blue. I'd seen an ad for the movie and thought it might be good. I haven't seen much anime, but I did enjoy the movie (though I'm not entirely sure it completely makes sense). Are there any anime fans on the board? Any other movies you might recommend?

Bill Daily was great in I Dream of Jeannie and The Bob Newhart Show. I saw the news about Daily's passing through Newhart's Facebook page.

I've seen Amy Adams in a variety of other roles too, and agree that she's quite good.

I like the cover art (and it's being released on my birthday).
