someone in the alfred hitchcock tag said
“why do people like alfred hitchcock films?”
A lot of times the reason will be, “Well it’s just like any other thriller movie, nothing special,” which leads me to believe that they don’t realize Hitchcock just about invented that genre, and most of the classic conventions of that genre. Not to mention the camera angles and moves he came up with, like the Dolly Zoom in Vertigo, which would be used for many films after (Jaws, Goodfellas, blah blah etc).
And to top it all off, the man was a genius. He knew exactly how the audience would see his films. He has more clever, thoughtful quotes than anyone else I’ve seen regarding film.
I wish I had to time to start the FuckYeahHitchcock back up.
idea idea idea;
a world in which we all control our own time.
And in turn become addicted to time, and have to keep controlling it by going forward in large quantities of time. But is time as infinite as we think? The people in 4,000,000 AD will soon find out!
I’ve tried to stay away from previews, reviews, etc because I’d really like this to work (at least for two seasons), but I feel like disappointment might be in store. I hope this first episode explains why they end up in the Dino age instead of some other non-human populated time (besides the almost robotic response from viewers I’ve asked that is, “because it’s more interesting.”). Well, here goes nothing.
P.S. If this show bombs I’d be perfectly content with Parks and Recs and waiting for Walking Dead.
P.P.S. New Girl should be renamed Zoey as You’ve Seen her Before
