Film Friday Weekly Roundup
What a totally awesome fun week I’ve had! First, I got a year younger and then it was Halloween. I got the amazing Alfred Hitchcock: The Masterpiece Collection Blu-ray and now I have something to play in the Blu-ray player that I got a month ago for this express purpose. I watched some seriously bad horror movies like The Bat. Then I watched some seriously great Hitchcock’s like Rope and Saboteur. And then I watch some seriously interesting short films from the upcoming Reel Asian Film Festival (reviews pending on The Toronto Film Scene). The Criterion Collection is 50% off at B&N.com and the Warner Brothers Archive gave me a bday coupon. Seriously, I’ve been cinematically busy this week, which is the best kind of busy to be. But that doesn’t mean that I was too busy to scour the interwebs for the best and brightest – all for you, Constant Reader. Happy reading and happy viewing!

And let’s take a moment to tip our hats to New York City, also known as the Greatest City in the World. One of the worst things about living in NYC is that about 8 million people are in your way all the time. And one of the best things about living in NYC is that when shit goes sideways, you’ve got about 8 million friends in the foxhole. This video is pretty amazing.
