Greetings guys and gals, today I have some very important news to give to you all. As of tomorrow I will be taking a break from this blog for about a month or two. This is due to lack of technology for the next few months.
I will try as hard as I can to post or at least reblog something, but I doubt that I will.
I hope that you guys and gals understand. But please keep in mind that I’m not doing this because I’m lazy or that I don’t care much about this blog. far from it!
Thank you for understanding and for keeping me doing this for so long, and I hope to post something again here at the Alfred Hitchcock Tribute blog.

Hey man! If you ever get back on Facebook you can add my new profile here. I’ve been banned more times than I can count myself… nonetheless…
I hated the Psycho remake, but a lot of that had little to do with it being a shot-for-shot retread of the Hitchcock classic, believe it or not. I thought the film was badly miscast, and the performances were extremely wooden; Vince Vaughn pretty much rushed through Anthony Perkins’ lines and generally looked like he didn’t give a shit. Likewise, Gus Van Sant rushed through all the shots that Hitchcock savored in the original. I generally enjoy Van Sant’s films (Drugstore Cowboy is one of my favorite movies of all time), but I can’t really think of anything I enjoyed about this movie whatsoever. To me, it’s the ultimate textbook example of how not to remake a classic horror film.
I could’t agree with you more Truant!
