Random Thoughts of a Movie Insomniac(Video Edition)


I’m trying something brand new this time, and posting a quick video review about some of the flicks I saw.  This took me a while to edit, and I apologize greatly about the images looking stretched.  Not quite sure how to fix that yet, but I’m still learning.  Feedback is always appreciated, so let me know what you think.

About The Vern

I love movies and I enjoy writing about them too. They both go pretty much hand in hand with each other and it's fun to discover new classics. I co host the podcasts The Film Pasture, ScreenTrax, and soon Cinema Recall. While also contributing reviews and articles to other great sites when I can.

    I have to agree with you on Rebecca. I read the book on which the movie was based. The movie basically trimmed a lot of fat from the book basically to fit the movie into a reasonable runtime, and the movie’s pacing really suffered for it. Personally, I really felt Laurence Olivier and Joan Fontaine really lacked onscreen chemistry, which I guess would make sense for a couple that married after knowing each other for all of two days.

  2. Kudos on experimenting with a different form of content delivery. I suspect cutting that together took a while. I’ve been trying to teach myself how to use the Audacity program to some day produce a Dog Farm podcast, but I can already see that producing a podcast to my satisfaction is going to be ridiculously time consuming.

    You may know this already, but you can use Google Hangouts On Air to broadcast live on YouTube. Once you’ve finished, it automatically archives to your YouTube channel. I only just discovered this while playing around with Google Hangouts for the Dog Farm Virtual Drive-In.

    Nasen75. Thank you very much for the comments. Im glad that Hitchcock got an Oscar for one of his movies. I just wished it was for a better one is all.

    Brandon. Editing anything is always a problem and Im still learning how to use it. Thanks again for the comments. I would love to help edit one of your podcasts if you wanna start one.

    Great work, Vern. Especially in your commentary on Snowpiercer; I completely agree. Swinton steals Snowpiercer, and the direction is stellar. Allison Pill’s scene is definitely terrific.

    Swinton had a good year with this Grand Budapest Hotel and Only Lovers Left Alive. My love for her can only get better. Thanks for the comment

    Thanks for sharing your opinions, I’ve only seen a couple of the movies. The blossoming romance in Rebecca didn’t feel particularly romantic. Maxim de Winter is not especially likeable, yet due to circumstance Rebecca is naively drawn to him. I think she was in love “with the idea of being in love”. I agree it isn’t one of Hitchcock’s best.
