Torn Curtain

Last night’s entry in my Sunday night Hitchcock marathon was this one, which I had absolutely no memory of, in terms of the story (even though I know I watched it at some point in my life). It could have been an OK spy thriller, but uncharacteristically, it doesn’t feel well put together, and there […]

Rosemary’s Baby

After putting aside my 1968 movie marathon for what feels like months (because I had a hard time getting through Wonderwall), I immediately followed it by this film, which is still so incredibly good.

A Quiet Place

This was quite entertaining. I thought the first half hour was a bit too slow, and sure, there are some things that you just need to accept and not think too much about (why do they stay in that place, how did this nail never get noticed before, etc.), but overall it’s a great idea, […]
