What I Watched, What You Watched #281


strangers-on-a-trainI got around to a lot more movies this week, beginning with last Sunday evening where I caught Die Hard and Die Hard with a Vengeance on Encore. I know everyone pretty much loves Die Hard, but I’m not sure I don’t love With a Vengeance a little more, I just love Samuel L. Jackson in that movie and Jeremy Irons is a perfect villain.

Things took a bit of a dip when I went to the theater to watch The Boy Next Door, but I quickly resolved that with It Happened One Night, which became my latest Best Movies entry.

Then I got a hankering to watch Strangers on a Train after it was recently announced David Fincher, Ben Affleck and Gillian Flynn were looking to put together a remake. I was also thinking it might become Best Movies entry #9, but after watching it and Robert Walker‘s performance I got the urge to watch The Night of the Hunter. I don’t know, which one would be a better Best Movies entry? Maybe both?

Finally, flipping through the channels we ended up watching Wedding Crashers, which I hadn’t seen in forever, but what a great comedy and sort of the peak comedy for Vince Vaughn who would only continue to play that same character for the next eight-plus years.
