You're crackers. It's the greatest film ever made. Crackers, I tell you.

I know it is, at least that's what I read everywhere, but I found the characters extremely annoying, with the only good character getting completely ignored, and is only in about the first 45 minutes though. Everyone's entitled to their own opinion. The movie look very nice though.

Rear Window on the other hand is AMAZING!!!

Must admit that I agree with Mr. McTiger

I have always found 'Vertigo' to be the one Hitchcock film that I cannot watch because I find it to be very tedious

It's good, but not in the same league as some gialli (including some of Martino's other films) , imo.

I also enjoyed The Loved Ones and Insidious (I haven't seen Eli) - two films that reignited my interest in, and to not write off, modern horror film making completely - after what had seemed to me like a turgid few years.

Also, in reference to Vertigo, it's one I haven't seen in a long time, and whilst it isn't anywhere near being my favourite Hitchcock film, I can still remember enjoying it a lot.

insidious scared the shit out of me, i watched it on BD with my headphones on (the best way to watch a horror film i think) and when it had finished i quickly packed up my stuff and strategically switched lights off as i went to bed making sure i was never in the dark, really really scared me!

Yes, exactly those films!

That's true. Savini's gore effects are excellent, but the grey and blue zombies clearly look as if the actors have been painted.

I'd have loved to be there watching that double feature as both films are superbly made, but slightly different. There's a bit more humour in Rear Window than Vertigo, but the scripting, design and direction in Vertigo are in a class of their own and it's Hitchcock's most accomplished picture. I feel like doing that double bill on my own one evening now!

Seeing it in 70 mm must have been a great visual experience and (I think) would have more information than you could fit on a dual layer BD.

Just in terms of Hitchcock's films, my favourite is Psycho, but his best is Vertigo.

By a mile, film projection is around the 4K mark isn't it?
