He managed to have a drunk girl take a pic of he and I in the end of the evening though. I edited the pic a bit iíll post it later.

It was very nice to meet you all guys. I wish we had arrived sooner so we could have spend more time together. Like I said yesterday, iíll be back soon and weíre planing to come live in New York in a couple of years. Weíll explore the city and watch movies together.

Watched Torn Curtain again... Far from Hitch's best movie, but it still has enough scenes that make it enjoyable (for now)... The museum scene followed by Gromek's death scene are just great.

Yup. I'd go even further and that these scenes, especially the Gromek's death, are among the ver best scenes by Sir Hitchcock.

Of course. It isnít something the movie is particularly ambiguous about. I donít know why we repeatedly have to go through this. There are actual messy plot points in DYS, this isnít one of them.

Remakes have very little to do with the flaws or qualities of the original movie.

I strongly disagree with many subjective choices here but thatís a good list of winners: good work on audacious films is being awarded.

Aliens - 1992 Special Edition 6.5/10

I've seen this movie a lot of times but not in the past few years. It's also the first time I watch this cut, which is described by Cameron himself as the director's cut. Although the guy clearly knows his stuff and provides some of the (rightfully so) most iconic shots of the franchise...

... it's also the most by the book and forgettable film of the 4. The classic 80's plot centered around a testosterone filled squad of space marines aged a lot.

Alien 3 - 2003 Special Edition 7.5/10

David Fincher always refused to have anything to do with the film after the legendary (and almost career ending) disaster the production was, but the team in charge of the SE went into a lot of hard work to release a film close to what the filmmaker intended, at least in postproduction. Once again, it's the first time I see the SE while I've seen the regular version several times (not as much as the other 3, though). It reconciled me with the movie, which features top notch acting, ballsy heroic fantasy inspired aesthetics (emphasized by the use of the soundtrack on wide shots) and for the first time in Alien history, an actual (although not always clear) plot. The VFX are hit and miss.

Alien Resurrection - Theatrical Cut 7/10

We were going to watch the SE cut, but JP Jeunet's introduction made us change our mind: he insists that the theatrical cut is the director's cut and that the longer SE cut is just a longer version intended for curious fans, that include alternative opening, cut scenes and stuff. So we watched the regular cut, that I know pretty well. This is definitely the Alien film where the director is the easiest to spot. Every Alien director hired his regular cast, but this film is full of classic Jeunet, which makes him a bit apart in the Alien mythology. I like the film, although it is clearly the less professionally done of the series. A couple of cheesy scenes,the fact half of the actors play in a ridiculous way (while Alien films had always featured nothing but great acting up to this point) and let's say "weird" character design don't help. Still, the improbable yet successful mix of Jeunet and Alien aesthetics (once again resulting on some powerful imagery) and an inventive plot make it another good entry.

Oh OK! I thought so. It's only a problem for a few editors and directors who learned to work the other way and donít like their habits changed: they needed some adaptation time. By the way, when was Lesley quoted saying that? I suspect it was at the start of the transition.

There is absolutely nothing in Avid/Premiere Pro/Final Cut that makes you stop thinking before you act, just like Word hasnít make writers stop thinking before they write. By making things easier, they have removed some barriers and time consuming tasks which means you have actually way more time for doing what you actually need (which could be thinking). You can still sit around and think exactly how long you need.

They have removed the tactile part of editing, which is a problem for some, but just a taste issue. It has no negative impact on the output whatsoever.
