Why does it matter? It's a movie set in a famous property. It's a retelling along modern themes, with modern mores. Or do you think the people going to see it are the same ones who went to see the original in theatre release?

As long as its good, and uses the IP well, who gives a shiat.



That fact that you think there is a chance it might be good is funny....and sad.

trashbox: Looks like something that should be on CW.


Probably because they're filming in Canada and using the same pool of actors.

/No matter how much you pretend, Canada doesn't look like the US

thornhill: Plot summary from IMDB: This film intends to give viewers an intimate understanding of how Norman Bates' psyche developed from his childhood through his teen years.

Did this people bother to watch Psycho? It's pretty clear why Norman is the way he is.


Agreed. The movie is titled Psycho. Obvious movie title is obvious.

In retrospect, yes. But remember that Hitchcock released only one trailer for the film, which had no scenes from the film in it; only Hitch telling you how scary it was. And when you're watching it for the first time, it appears to be a B-grade caper film about a girl who's stolen some money.

Then it takes one of the biggest left turns in movie history.

Another tv show with all white people.

Could they not take the picture in front of different doors? Or is the budget so tight they could only afford 1-7 door numbers? I mean come on, at least do SOMETHING to the door when you change people. Its got the same paint scratched off and the same wood markings! Honestly.

FriarReb98: GibbyTheMole: Ryker's Peninsula

iPsycho's playlist:

Mother - Danzig
Mama I'm Coming Home - Ozzy
Mother's Little Helper - The Rolling Stones
Mama Said Knock You Out - L.L. Cool J
Atom Heart Mother - Pink Floyd
The Lumberjack Song - Monty Python
Dude Looks Like a Lady - Aerosmith
Funky Cold Medina - Tone Loc
Napoleon XIV - They're Coming To Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!
Young Girls - Dokken

Ya forgot this one. It could be Norman Bates' theme song.

That's the only track I ever skip on Synchronicity.


"OK, Andy, we're going to let you write a song for this album. If we like it, we'll start letting you write more. As a three-person band, it's cool we can work together to show each others artistic vision. So, what have you got for us?"

instead of watching this movie, why not just go read up on Ed Gein and save some time?

Everybody turns the dvd off when they interminable psychologist 20 minute explanation at the end comes up

I was incredibly lucky - I did not know anything about this movie the first time I saw it.

Grand PBUH: So they are going to explain how he was crazy because of a high midichlorian count?


After all that sturm and drang, he's just a little boy in a woman suit, crying for mommy and daddy. It would be funny if it weren't so pathetic. Oh what the heck, I'll laugh anyway.

They built the set near my town. Going down a back road and all of a sudden, WTF is the Bates Motel and house doing on the old landfill site? The area is creepy enough with all the old dump signs and hordes of crows.

Orgasmatron138: I was incredibly lucky - I did not know anything about this movie the first time I saw it.


I knew the shower scene, and that Bates was the killer, but nothing else really.

Actually sitting down and watching the movie when I was 12 or 13 was a really enlightening experience. There's a whole film that takes place around the shower scene, and it's not what you expect.

I have a weird dislike of Hitchcock films, probably to do in large part with his dislike of shooting in anything resembling a real location when something could be faked on a soundstage. They're like watching a filmed version of a stage play, and everything seems to have had the life sucked out of it. Psycho is the best of the lot I've seen.

But I'll sit and watch North by Northwest (which I think is the best of the rest) anytime I have the chance. It's completely improbably, but perfectly structured and constructed. Cary Grant is likewise the best star for his films.

I was reminded tonight that that excellent-looking Hitchcock biopic with Anthony Hopkins is coming out.

Very early Oscar prediction:
Hopkins wins again for playing Hitch
Wes Anderson wins best director
The Master gets shut out of everything except Screenplay, which it wins, but the Oscar inexplicably reads "Mankowitz."

No way Hopkins wins. Day-Lewis wins for Lincoln.
Best Director goes to Spielberg or Tom Hooper for Les Mis. Likewise Best Picture.
And, yes, The Master gets shut out of everything.

There's a chance I could sprout flowers from my ears too. I'm not hedging on that one either.

Just saying, shiatting yourself in fury because...it has an ipod in it..?

propasaurus: No way Hopkins wins. Day-Lewis wins for Lincoln.


Forgot about that, but they did just give it to him for There Will be Milkshakes.

Hopkins and Lewis both go on the short list, without question.

I really think giving PT Anderson the screenplay Oscar for The Master would be the ultimate fark-you, as.... well, Citizen Kane (Spelled the poor man's name wrong).

Day-Lewis and Jackman, and Maybe Hopkins.

His rear projection shots certainly strain disbelief in the modern era. I know that I enjoyed the experiment of "Rope" as a movie in one continuous take, but was distracted by the lighting and time passing outside the window. I suggest Notorious as a great Hitchcock film.

Also, The Master deserves to be shut out from everything, as it was truly crummy, except for the drunk guy screwing the fat girl at the end. If it wins for screenplay that will be truly astonishing. The plot was for crap. Seymour Hoffman was pretty decent though.

Fact: it's cheaper to buy an iPod than it is to make a period piece. Not by much, but still.
