North by Northwest

I’m watching an Alfred Hitchcock movie starring Cary Grant.

Is that awesome or what?

“You listen to me. I’m an advertising man, not a red herring. I’ve got a job, a secretary, a mother, two ex-wives and several bartenders dependent on me. And I don’t intend to disappoint them all by getting myself slightly killed.”

I am seriously digging this movie.

An Affair to Remember was the first (and perhaps only until now) movie I ever saw Cary Grant in. His role in North by Northwest is pretty different from his role as Nicky Ferrante, although he’s still a lady killer ;> Ah, I loves me some Cary Grant.

Netflix rules. I’m getting exposed to so many great movies I’ve never heard of ;> Next in my queue is the first DVD of an anime ADV just released called Diamond Daydreams. It’s about six girls who come together through their heartbreak, or something. (It sounds like it’s based on the type of game Shibuya Shori likes to play ;>) When I read about it in the ADV newsletter I thought it sounded like something I’d be interested in seeing, but not something I wanted to buy without knowing whether or not I liked it. Netflix to the rescue!
