Rear Window

As I'm writing this Nic & I are finishing up watching Rear Window directed by Sir Alfred Hitchcock himself. It's a Netflix rental recommended by our boss Darrell. I must admit when I saw this movie in our Queue a few days ago I was a bit annoyed at Nic for putting it there. All I'd ever heard about Alfred Hitchcock was my mom's painful memories of watching the movie The Birds. But alas it arrived Tuesday afternoon and we started watching it last night. I have never ever liked scary movies. In fact I remember one Halloween when I was in college several of us went to go see Texas Chainsaw Massacre, I don't know how in the world they ever got me in that theater. The only thing I can figure is that I was pretty smitten with my date (aka Nic) and I watched him the whole time instead of the screen :).

I must admit that I did have to look up the ending to Rear Window on just now while the movie was playing in front of my eyes to ensure that I didn't need to leave the room. Nic already made fun of me, so there's no need to do that, but shoot, in my opinion no movie is worth a night full of nightmares! Check it out if you're looking for a movie to watch. On a scale of 1-5, I rate it 3.5 and Nic says a 4. Who knew the Uebels were such movie buffs.

  1. I feel the same way about scary movies April. I often leave the room and then make Cameron summarize what happened. Glad to hear that I'm not alone.
