1. Rear Window (1954)
Michael M's rating:

People who added this item 941  Average listal rating (634 ratings) 8  IMDB Rating 8.1 
2. Rope (1948)
A perfectly structured real time scenario, ahead of it's time. Features some of the best dialogue I've heard on any movie tackling issues on human moriarty and delving into humorous conversations.

Of course it wouldn't be complete without Hitchcock's trademark suspense, toppled with great performances including one of James Stewart's best monologues, and all this within only 80 minutes, but none of it feels forced.

One of most underrated films I've ever seen.

10/10.

People who added this item 2461  Average listal rating (1580 ratings) 7.5  IMDB Rating 7.8 
4. The Birds (1963)
Hitchcock's closet to making a full on horror movie. Quite like a zombie survival movie, but with birds. One of Hitchcock's most suspenseful films and quite terrifying at times. Also features some excellent comedic dialogue.

A very underrated movie.

10/10.

Michael M's rating:

People who added this item 907  Average listal rating (559 ratings) 8  IMDB Rating 8.1 
10. Strangers on a Train (1951)
The results of being at the wrong place at the wrong time. Features a very "out there" plot, yet somehow doesn't come of as too ridiculous.

Also features one of my favourite Hitchcock climaxes.

9/10.
Michael M's rating:

People who added this item 602  Average listal rating (387 ratings) 7.5  IMDB Rating 7.9 
11. The 39 Steps (1935)

Michael M's rating:

People who added this item 332  Average listal rating (190 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating 7.5 
13. The Wrong Man (1956)
Based on a true story, although the ending is a little anti climatic, the movie does a terrific jobs at putting you in the main character's sense of desperation.

8/10.
Michael M's rating:

People who added this item 555  Average listal rating (333 ratings) 7.4  IMDB Rating 7.7

Michael M's rating:

People who added this item 649  Average listal rating (394 ratings) 7.9  IMDB Rating
16. Shadow of a Doubt (1943)
A fantastic early Hitchcock, showing signs of what was later to come in his career.

9/10.
Michael M's rating:

People who added this item 905  Average listal rating (553 ratings) 7.9  IMDB Rating 8.1 
17. Notorious (1946)

18. Frenzy (1972)
Michael M's rating:

People who added this item 309  Average listal rating (201 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating 7.3 
19. Saboteur (1942)
Michael M's rating:

People who added this item 258  Average listal rating (171 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating 6.7 
20. Torn Curtain (1966)
After the disappointment of Marine, Torn Curtain actually took me by surprise, especially considering I've heard many negative things about it.

From the bat, the films doesn't feel like Hitchcock, but rather James Bond, but the familiar Hitchcockisms do come through later on leading to some very memorable moments. Newman's acting tends to be stale at times, but Andrews shines throughout.

8/10.

29. Marnie (1964)
From the synopsis of the plot, this movie sounds like it has potential, but as the movie progresses the plot becomes too ludacris and unbelievable, even by Hitchcock's standards.

5/10.
Michael M's rating:

People who added this item 769  Average listal rating (478 ratings) 7.5  IMDB Rating 7.5 
30. The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956)
A disappointing Hitchcock-Stewart collaboration. Some great perfromances and interesting premise, but the movie's pacing is incredibly uneven.

6/10.

People who added this item 148  Average listal rating (86 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating 6.6

33. Jamaica Inn (1939)
Michael M's rating:

People who added this item 397  Average listal rating (252 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating 7.2 
34. The Trouble with Harry (1955)
Oh oh, what happened here? Hitchcock's attempt at directing a full on comedy doesn't turn out for the best. Although it is a very nice film to look at, it's brought down by dull performances, poorly written script, and for being about as funny as Uwe Boll is talented.

4/10.
