Vertigo (1958)
WOW! One of the most surprising twists in one of the most well-directed thrillers with one of the most unexpected endings I've ever seen! Simply fantastic, among my favorite movies list.

This movie makes it official, Sir Hitchcock and Jimmy Stewart are now my favorite Director/Actor partnership of all time.

Rear Window (1954)
Superb movie indeed... I can see why it has got so much praise. The simple plot, calm mood and suspenseful development completely pulled me in. The very cool presence of one of the greatest actors ever, also adds a lot more awesome points to this amazing story.

Crazy funny action spy thriller and a very unique one at that even for Alfred Hitchcock. The characters and the story are pretty solid and together with the movie To Catch a Thief you can clearly see where they went to form the basis for James Bond (based on Cary Grant's very elegant performances)

I can see why this one is also among Hitchcock's most popular.

One of the most obscure Hitchcock movies I've seen... it's never meant to be a mystery story, but a simple narrative, since the beginning, about how a hideous manipulative man could cheat a so very much lovable family.

Suspicion (1941)
One of my favorite performances by Cary Grant in a very entertaining and mysterious story that left me in doubt until the very end. Not a very well-known or high-praised Hitchcock.

Psycho (1960)
A very good good movie, but just like The Good, The Bad and The Ugly ,it didn't wow me... taking into account both are some of the most acclaimed movies in history, I was a little underwhelmed (most likely due to very high expectations).

Though I can see how it revolutionized and reinvented a genre back then, being a staple for B movies today, that with more nudity and violence still can't reach the status of Psycho.

I guess it's not very much my style. Still among Hitchcock's best though, no discussion about that.

Rebecca (1940)
Veed's rating:
People who added this item 419 Average listal rating (239 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 7.4
A very good movie in a time where Hitchcock released movies like Rear Window and Vertigo, so people often forget about this one. Henry Fonda delivers a memorable performance as the man who was mistakenly identified as the hold-up man, thus going through a series of physical and mentally exhausting events. Contains some of my favorite acting in Hitchcock's movies.

The Birds (1963)
Holy crap! This movie was a shock! Having watched a bunch of Hitchcock movies before, I had somewhat medium expectations about this one... and boy did it surprise me!

The most notable things about this movie is the incredible cast, the very gripping (very simplistic) story and the fact that it was one of the very few movies where I could truly feel the terror!

The plan was perfect, but it backfired. Incredibly well-directed thriller with a very good cast. The ending was so satisfying!
Veed's rating:
People who added this item 871 Average listal rating (544 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 7.5
One of the most well-acted movies from Alfred Hitchcock's repertoire. As well as a very good story, even if it had some inconsistencies. Jimmy Stewart is just too great... and Dories Day was amazing as well!

Rope (1948)
A very experimental movie from what I've heard, and from what it can be seen as well. The story is pretty original and interesting, and the tension can almost be palpable throughout the movie! It's incredible what Sir Hitchcock and Jimmy Stewart could pull-off together back in the days... as well as all the entire great cast in this movie.

Generally not one of the most liked by Hitchcock's fans... I found it incredibly funny and refreshing! Clearly a different approach from Hitchcock.

Very good mystery movie, just felt a little slow as times. It shows Hitchcock's early genius though.

Felt like I was watching a James Bond's movie! Great cinematography and scenarios, even if the plot wasn't too great.

Notorious (1946)
Ingrid Bergman was amazing, even more fantastic than earlier movies! But everything else was a notorious disappointment for me... including Cary Grant.

The 39 Steps (1935)
Confusing plot and weird pacing even for a Hitchcock movie. I just couldn't get into it... I think my bad version of the movie didn't helped much though. Not interested in re-watching anyways.

My top of the movies from the genius Alfred Hitchcock.
