A Man for All Seasons
I have to give this film credit for its excellent cinematography; it was beautifully photographed. The period costumes were also good. However, it was one of the most tedious films I've ever watched. Yes, the story has merit, but the picture was all talk and very little action. I can guarantee that I will never pop this film into my DVD player if I really want to be entertained. (Perhaps, if I need help falling asleep I will play it.)

Argo
This is a great movie! The pace was excellent; it grabbed you right away and never let go. It's really suspenseful; I wanted to lie down and relax while I watched, but I couldn't. I was literally on the edge of my seat. The early eighties period details are just right and the style of the film is spot on. I loved the soundtrack, too. If I had to say anything that could have been improved about the film, I'd have to say that the acting could have been better. I think that Ben Affleck was a little too restrained in his performance as Tony Mendez, however he certainly wasn't bad, and it didn't detract from the film at all. I would highly recommend seeing this film.

The original undercover boss. This was a charming movie with great performances.
71
Dial M for Murder 1954,  PG)
Dial M for Murder
I think Dial M is one of Hitchcock's most underrated films. I've loved this film for a long time and wonder why it's so unappreciated. The acting is marvelous, especially Ray Milland as the duplicitous Tony Wendice. He's one of my favorite movie villains.

To be able to make a movie in which most of the action takes place on one small set and make it interesting is a testament to Hitchcock's brilliance. He firstly did it with Rope, and although not as good as Dial M, I still think it's an interesting film. He would do it again in his masterpiece Rear Window.

Much of Dial M's appeal is in the screenplay, which would have to be great in order to make a movie like this one, that has such a limited setting, any good. It's mainly the dialogue that has to keep the audience's attention. It does an excellent job. I think Dial M ought to be considered one of Hitch's great works along with many of his other films of this period.

Dr. Strangelove Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
Brilliant!! Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove is a nearly perfect film in all respects. The Cold War is over, but this movie is still relevant and great fun to watch. The acting is superb, particularly George C. Scott and Sterling Hayden. One of the best satires ever made.
78
Easy Virtue 1927,  Unrated)
Easy Virtue
Like many of Hitchcock's early silent films, Easy Virtue is much different than what today's audiences expect from the Master of Suspense. This social drama hasn't aged well and the story today is dated and irrelevant. I enjoyed the musical score that went along with this movie though. It coincided beautifully with the action in the story and is the greatest virtue of Hitchcock's Easy Virtue.

Rich and Strange
This early Hitch is a sad effort at comedy, yet still remains an intriguing piece of work. Not a particularly good story and without a single sympathetic character, but it does a great job at showcasing Hitch's talent as a director. The mise-en-scene is excellent. It foreshadowed the Hitchcock to come; very stylish. I liked the cinematography and some of the special effects were ahead of their time. I think this is one of Hitchcock's better early films. What it lacks in story and characterization, it makes up for technically. It was fascinating to watch. I recommend it to any fan of Hitchcock.

Billy Wilder's sharp and sarcastic wit really shines in this comedy classic. Although not Monroe's best performance, she still manages to steal every scene she's in. Who better to portray the epitome of male fantasy? Notice that she doesn't have a name in the film. She's not supposed to be taken literally, but symbolically. Tom Ewell does a great job as the bumbling philanderer and the rest of the cast, in their small respective parts, really make the film deliver. Overall, Wilder's satirical look at the 1950s view of marriage and morality is a winner. It strikes just the right balance of laughs and message.
