The Thirty-Nine Steps (1978)
One of the best films ever made by Rank Org.
Most of the people I spoke with about the 39 steps refer to the Hitchcock's 1935 version as the best one. Well most of these people haven't seen the 1978 version. If any of you will have a chance to see it, don't miss it as this version is story closer to John Buchan's book than Mr. Hitchcock's film.
Unfortunately, the 1978 version wasn't released on video in Europe (I believe it was released only in the US).
Robert Powell - stunning; David Warner - excellent; Prussian Agents - villains at their best.
b.t.w. very good music by Ed Welch.
Silent Hill (1999)
Frightening, very frightening indeed!
First, I should point out that I'm a big fan of horror games. It started with Alone In the Dark, continued with Resident Evil (esp. 2) and so far finished with Silent Hill. I've been anxiously expecting the Konami game since end last year, when I saw first pictures in PSX magazine, saw I was very happy to finally buy it and check it out.
Strengths: (1) Very, very good intro. (2) Music is just great (much better than R.E. 2) (3) Graphics are o.k. even though I've expected a bit more (4) The atmosphere is really scary (I'm 25 and have to admit that playing this game until 3 o'clock in the morning when you're all alone in a big house is not a very good idea) (5) Plot is excellent (you just don't know what's going on until the end)
Weaknesses: (1) I don't want to sound bad here but there was just too much blood in the game (i.e. the death of the nurse - forgot her name). Think that the game should have been certified 18 not 15. (2) The final scene and fight is way too easy and way to short. I've expected much more of it.
Summary: Certainly a game to buy and play (if you have the guts to finish it; my advice is to do so or you'll be haunted by all the disgusting creatures in your dreams).
