Happy Halloween, this episode The I Hate Critics Podcast become the I Hate Hitchcock Podcast…except that we love Hitchcock. Alfred Hitchcock is a great place to start if you’re looking to dive into classic cinema. His movies for the most part hold up and we can’t recommend them enough.
For this episode we take a look at four of his movies.
Rope – 1948 starring James Stewart, John Dall and Farley Granger
Dial M for Murder – 1954 starring Ray Milland, Grace Kelly and Robert Cummings
North by Northwest – 1959 starring Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint
The Birds – 1963 starring Tippi Hedren and Rod Taylor
We’ve got two new movies this week. Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation and Vacation. Mission: Impossible cleaned up during the weekend box office bringing in $58 million. Both Sean and Josh loved Mission: Impossible, they claim it’s the best action movie of the year. There’s no way that’s true because Mad Max Fury Road came out this year but whatever. Vacation really upset Sean. I personally had no problem with it. It’s not as memorable as its predecessors, but to me it’s hard to say something is or is not funny. If it’s funny to somebody then it’s funny. You can’t define funny.
