Favorite Films & Reviews

Since Film is one of my Greatest Passions, be it Film Making, Writing or sitten back and watchen a Cary Grant Flick. I thought I’d throw a list of my Favorite Films together in a Basic Fave First kind of Fashion. This list will change from time to time, and there will be Reviews on some of the Films, at which point I will Link it’s Title to the Review Post itself.

In addition, I shall supply Links after the name if I have Posts that are somehow related to the Film. Enjoy

  1. I don’t know half of these films but I will copy the list : ) I’m not a big fan of “old” movies, I mean like the ’50… now i saw some great titles in your list : )

    • I tend to like Movies from the 40’s more than 50’s… And not all of them, just some. Alfred Hitchcock’s “Rear Window” is one of My All Time Favorites, which is from 1954… But it’s an Exception… Great Suspense/Mystery… I’d put that High on your list to Watch… Bring Popcorn, and Candy (or maybe your healthy substitute, lol), and someone to hide behind, Lol… His use of “Shadows” in it is Amazing.

      Thanks for the Comment H


      • True Alfred Hitchcock did some great movies, I might watch it then, I don’t remember if I’ve seen that one : ) Thanks 😉

        • He’s a bit Demented sometimes, I don’t watch all of his stuff… But he’s definitely Talented, and some of his Films were Pretty Brilliant… Beyond the Very Cool Mystery/Suspense in this one, there’s also a Subtle Romance which I found very Appealing. But the Suspense, Film Work, and Acting is Awesome in this.

          You’re Welcome
