Alfred Hitchcock is one of my favorite directors. Rear Window and North By Northwest are my two personal favorites. The other day while scrolling through my Twitter feed I saw a tweet from Rupert Pupkin about this awesome Alfred Hitchcock ReAction Figure from House of Mysterious Secrets. I thought I
Over the years, the horror genre has received a reputation of being filled with plot-less, talent-less and pointless violence and gore. In regards to the artists who have contributed to this genre since it’s inception, we look at a few films that have shaped present-day horror. 1. The Cabinet of Dr.
A few of us had a chance to see an advanced screening of Side Effects, starring Jude Law, Rooney Mara, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Channing Tatum. Overall, we weren’t too impressed. I think I was the most forgiving out of myself, fellow contributor Michael O’Brien and co-founder Kristal Bailey. Some of my comments about the film may be
Alfred Hitchcock is all the rage right now with Hitchcock in theaters and a sweet box set now available. A&E is looking to capitalize off all this buzz with their upcoming show Bates Motel, a prequel to the events that take place in Psycho.

We might as well talk about some actual awards. The New York Film Critics Circle and National Board of Review both announce their picks next week, but the indie circuit brought the major awards updates of the week. The Gotham Independent Film Awards took place on Monday night and offered
It’s the holiday season! Which means tons of shopping is definitely on everyone’s agenda, so what better gifts to buy than awesome box sets of their favorite movies and TV shows? I’ve conjured up a really cool list of great box sets to get the TV show and movie lover
The Twilight Saga is over! The series finale, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, opened to nearly $141.1 million in the States over the weekend. Kristal quite enjoyed it, but I wasn’t impressed. But Breaking Dawn – Part 2 is less divisive when it comes to Oscar since
I had the chance to see Michael Haneke’s Palme d’Or-winning Amour (Love) over the weekend. It also played the AFI Fest – and we’ll be talking about that in a bit – but I saw it here on the East Coast. The French-language aspect might hinder its chances at Oscar
So, Tom Tykwer, Andy Wachowski, and Lana Wachowski’s bold ensemble piece Cloud Atlas hit theaters this weekend, and audiences are showing little interest. For whatever my $0.02 is worth, the film is spectacular. It’s a film that stumbles quite often in its individual threads – there are six different stories
Oscar watchers, you don’t want to miss this! HITCHCOCK is already building up buzz and it seemingly came out of nowhere. With the high caliber talent involved, it’s no wonder Fox Searchlight pushed the release date up so it could garner some major award recognition. Hitchcock buffs and enthusiasts will obviously be interested,
On Friday, Ang Lee’s Life of Pi kicked off the New York Film Festival and received high marks from the critics. The epic scale, lauded visual effects, and story about humanity might tug the heartstrings of Oscar voters, and if there’s a movie out there to grab “the heart vote,”
The awards season never comes without a few curveballs, and Fox Searchlight just threw one our way. Last week, the distributor announced that Sacha Gervasi’s feature-film debut Hitchcock, about the legendary director and his making of the horror classic Psycho, will arrive in limited release on Nov. 23, 2012. The
While not a true Blu-ray set, I felt like this release was better reviewed together because of one reason: Alfred Hitchcock. These are some of his earlier films, and they hadn’t yet seen blu-ray release, and yet, there may not have been a major clamoring for them either. It’s true,
