Back in 1945, Alfred Hitchcock supervised and produced a documentary on the horrors of the Holocaust and focused on what went on at the concentration camps during World War II. However, Hitchcock decided not to release this documentary die to some political and social reasons. Not many people have seen this, and those who have, didn’t see the complete version, but the word is that people who have seen the restored project now, say that it’s pretty brutal.

Hi Bryan Here….

Yes.  James Brown and Alfred Hitchcock met long ago and had a conversation.  Better yet.  It was filmed and recorded.  This happened on the old ‘Mike Douglas’ show years ago.  The panel was Alfred Hitcock, Rod McKuen, Joan Rivers, and James Brown, and of course Mike Douglas.  How about that for a dinner party??  Well with Hitchcock’s wit and dry humor, this little segment of the show made me bust a gut laughing.  Enjoy.

Film Review: ‘Hitchcock’

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 25th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

One of the most prolific and well respected directors of all time, Alfred Hitchcock, is once again in the spotlight more than 30 years after his death.  Alfred Hitchcock has been the centerpiece for two projects as of recent.  The first being HBO’s ‘The Girl’ and now the feature film ‘Hitchcock’.  Whereas HBO’s ‘The Girl’ follows Hitchcock’s film ‘The Birds’, ‘Hitchcock’ centers around ‘Psycho’.  I can safely say that ‘Hitchcock’ is one of my favorite films of the year and Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren both deserve awards for their portrayals of Mr. and Mrs. Hitchcock.

Film Review: ‘The Intruder’!!

by Janet White on May 2nd, 2019

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

 

“The Intruder was suspenseful and sneaks up on the viewer.”

The Intruder’s opening sequence was a mix match. For what does an Audi commercial have to do with the storyline? The images of a car zooming in and out of traffic are exciting and punching though it does not establish the story or the couple. Though the cinematography was well planned and executed, the sound mixing was off in regards to levels. The songs were introduced in a manner that was jarring and distracting versus really pushing the narrative. The muting of the score and dialogue during Charlie’s rage moments were inconsistent ranging from too low to too high as well. The Intruder will remind you of the cinematic genius of Alfred Hitchcock with its villain shot angles, the use of a MacGuffin, shadow, mise en scéne, and psychological shot composition. The viewer will feel the frustration and trap of the story without question. Also, a little of Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining style rears its head as well, literally. Kudos to Deon Taylor, the director!

‘Obsession’ – Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 7th, 2019

Back in 1976, director Brian De Palma (Scarface) and writer Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver) collaborated on a movie titled ‘Obsession‘. It was their tribute to Alfred Hitchcock’sVertigo‘ and starred Cliff Robertson and John Lithgow. The film touches on a few taboo subjects, but is nowhere near as violent as the previous mentioned films. ‘Obsession‘ is actually quite a masterpiece of the late 1970s that features a very melodramatic and thrilling story that takes you on a terrifying journey of a man who is still grieving his deceased wife and daughter.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Manhattan Murder Mystery’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 6th, 2018

THE FILM


What if I were to tell you that Woody Allen basically made his own version of Alfred Hitchcock’sRear Window‘ that starred himself and Diane Keaton? You’d be excited, right? Well, it happened in 1993 and is kind of light a 1st cousin to ‘Annie Hall‘ as Allen and Keaton play a couple in their mid-life who thing their neighbor killed someone. The film is called ‘Manhattan Murder Mystery‘, and is a comedic film that served to alleviate the pain of Allen’s divorce from Mia Farrow.

Film Review: ‘Birdman’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 22nd, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

and-the-oscar-goes-to-could-birdman-be-the-first-superhero-movie-nominated-for-best-picture

It’s a very rare occurrence where a film changes the game on almost every aspect of filmmaking. From acting to camerawork, ‘Birdman‘ literally soars above the rest where fierce emotions of erratic actors are put on display in a chaotic yet darkly comedic setting inside the St. James Theatre on West 44th Street in Manhattan. Not only do these actors turn in Oscar-worthy performances of the highest order, but director Alejandro G. Inarritu (Amores Perros) and cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki have given us an image so fresh and that pushes the bounds, that this is one of the most pleasing films of the year, visually speaking and unlike anything you might have seen before. Lubezki has worked with Alfonso Cauron on ‘Children of Men‘ and the recent film ‘Gravity‘.

Hi, Bryan Here….

We have heard it all when it comes to ‘Y The Last Man‘, originally an epic and amazing comic book series from the talented Brian K. Vaughan and  Pia Guerra, which began in 2002 under DC’s Vertigo label.  We’ve heard it would be a film, a television series, and few other mediums.  Nothing ever seemed to get off the ground.  But finally, New Line Cinema is moving forward with a film based on the comic book.

Grace Kelly Film to Be Made!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 1st, 2011

Beautiful, talented, and more than meets the eye, Grace Kelly entranced audiences and then the political world for many years. When she died in 1982, 100 million people watched her funeral. These days, the people would be more interested in her acting career than her political one. Hollywood, however, is going to pay a tribute not to the actress, but to the princess.
