A new box set of Hitch blu rays arrived, so first up:

Vertigo

The fact that this is one of the greatest film ever made is only amplified by the incredible job on the blu ray

I was taken aback at how Hitch coordinated colors in certain scenes and how he took a thousand details and
would make one simple / perfect scene or shot ..

Black and white film definitely has its beauty, but Vertigo - in all its glorious colors - is flat out amazing

The genius of this movie. It's not the most interesting tale to tell but I will share it anyway.

I saw for years this film hyped as one of the greatest ever. I bought it. Now...I tried to watch this film endless times. Every time I was like "WHAT THE BLOODY HELL IS ALL THIS ABOUT?! FUUUUKC!"

I felt the opening is all random and bizarre. It made no real sense.

Then one day I was bored and saw the case. "Ok. I will finally finish you."

I felt the same until it got to a point I never reached before. Everything came together and by the time it ended I was flabbergasted by its genius!

I've seen it twice since then and I think it is PERFECT. I really need to watch more Hitchcock. I've loved every movie I have seen immensely.

None more than Vertigo.

Sir Graves Ghastly was a show with Variety aspects, from the '60s Through the early Eighties. [1967-1982] The show was also seen and popular in Cleveland, OH, and Washington DC, but never as popular as in Detroit, Mi.  Used to have a sound bite of his laugh, can't find it now...

Hitch has a few sets out, some of them pretty comprehensive  - but because I already have Frenzy, Rope, and Strangers On A Train on blu ray, I opted for a smaller set of five : Vertigo, The Birds, Psycho, North By Northwest and Rear Window ...

I had never seen any of these five on anything but VHS and television ... so the quality is striking to me

It's this one:

1970s BBC production for the Play For Today series called "Robin Redbreast"

Very simple but extremely effective story of a woman, who after a relationship break up, retreats to a family farmhouse in rural southern England .. Some heavy themes, esp for television circa 1970, with some incredible character actors ..

The makers of 1973's The Wicker Man owe a lot to this great little television episode

Next up .. 1982's Unhinged

I love it when an obscure movie comes along and just blows me away .. Unfairly labeled a "slasher", Unhinged is about as good as it gets as far as dark, low budget horror goes ... Bizarre without trying and about as insanely effective as they come

"A Star is Born"

It was pretty good. Lady Gaga was extremely good.  The Diceman was solid too.
