Something wonderful has happened in the realm of cinema since Hitch’s last outing. Or in the realm of digital transfer. Or both. In any case, this film looks about a million times better than the earlier ones.
Things have taken a turn content-wise as well. This feels much more like the later Hitchcock we all know and love. I’m almost allowing myself to hope we’re done with musicals and theater-adaptations.
I know I was supposed to binge watch all of Kevin Willmott’s movies, but I’d forgotten to buy #2.
And then I got sick. So now I’m on the couch with this new old laptop with some Linux on it, meaning I had to get tearing free video to work.
But I’m happy to report that getting tearing free video is much easier now than it was the last time I tried when it was impossible. Anyway, I have this bootleg in high quality version (in a sense) that I don’t know where I got. Luckily, it’s on the Youtube. It really is quite peak prog, even if it’s kinda fake—the audio is apparently sourced from a number of different recordings, from more than one night. No bother though—Armageddon in Nine Eighths still melts my brain.
