The Birds Screens at Schlafly Thursday – Here are Alfred Hitchcock’s Ten Best Movies

30 March 2015 7:48 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Article by Jim Batts, Dana Jung, and Tom Stockman

The Birds screens at Schlafly Bottleworks (7260 Southwest Ave.- at Manchester – Maplewood, Mo 63143)  Thursday, April 2nd at 7pm. It is a benefit for Helping Kids Together (more details about this event can be found Here)

This gives us a perfect excuse to re-run this top ten list from March of 2012. Alfred Hitchcock directed 54 feature films between 1925 and 1976, and here, according to We Are Movie Geeks, are his ten best:

Frenzy

Frenzy, Hitchcock’s next to last feature film from 1972, represented a homecoming of sorts since it was the first film completely shot in his native England since his silents and early ” talkies ” in the 1930’s. By dipping into the then somewhat new territory of serial killers, he took full advantage of the new cinema freedoms and truly earned his ‘ R ‘ MPAA rating.

What I Watched, What You Watched #281

25 January 2015 7:00 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I got around to a lot more movies this week, beginning with last Sunday evening where I caught Die Hard and Die Hard with a Vengeance on Encore. I know everyone pretty much loves Die Hard, but I'm not sure I don't love With a Vengeance a little more, I just love Samuel L. Jackson in that movie and Jeremy Irons is a perfect villain. Things took a bit of a dip when I went to the theater to watch The Boy Next Door, but I quickly resolved that with It Happened One Night, which became my latest Best Movies entry. Then I got a hankering to watch Strangers on a Train after it was recently announced David Fincher, Ben Affleck and Gillian Flynn were looking to put together a remake. I was also thinking it might become Best Movies entry #9, but after watching it and Robert Walker's performance »

There are so many feelings, and I am feeling All of them, all at once, right now. Help. Excitement: David Fincher and Gillian Flynn together again, and so soon!! Indifference: Ben Affleck is also involved, which, sure. Anger: A remake of Strangers On a Train? How dare they?? Hitchcock at his best is untouchable and the movie is perfect; no sane human could think it needs updating! Cautious Optimism: But. Buuuuut. If they're going to do to it, and you can't stop them.. The Flynn and Fincher team is such a great choice. Think of the cold, agonizing tension! Think of the pitch-black comedy! We deserve this. Confusion: But Strangers on a Train »

Affleck, Fincher to reteam for Strangers on a Train remake

13 January 2015 2:22 PM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Ben Affleck and David Fincher are reteaming for a remake of Alfred Hitchcock's Strangers on a Train.

On the heels of their box-office hit Gone Girl, the star and the director will reunite for a film based on the 1951 classic in which two strangers meet on a train and conspire to carry out murders for one another. Gone Girl scribeGillian Flynn is expected to write the screenplay, which originally came from Patricia Highsmith's novel.

Hitchcock's film stars Farley Granger as tennis star Guy Haines who engages in a "criss-cross" murder swap with a stranger named Bruno (Robert Walker).  Bruno agrees to kill Haines' wife and in exchange, Haines will kill Bruno's father.  Since they are strangers with no link between them other than this fateful train ride, they will not be placed under police scrutiny as suspects.

 

Fincher's thriller is to move the initial meeting to a plane. »

Psychological scares and an increasingly disturbing atmosphere made Gone Girl one of the year’s most unsettling theatrical releases. If you enjoyed the potent combination of David Fincher in the director’s chair, Gillian Flynn scribing the screenplay, and Ben Affleck in the lead role for Gone Girl, then you may be pleased to hear that the trio are looking to come together once again for a remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s classic 1951 film, Strangers on a Train.

According to Deadline, David Fincher will direct and Ben Affleck will star in Strangers, a Warner Bros. reimagining of Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train (which in turn is based on Patricia Highsmith’s 1950 novel of the same name), with Gillian Flynn in talks to pen the project. Affleck will portray “a movie star – in the middle of a campaign for an Oscar during awards season – whose private plane breaks down and »
