Great film with nods to Hitchcock March 15 2009
By Angela Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I was a little surprised by the lukewarm reception to The Lodger. It is so far above any modern-day Ripper film, it definitely deserves a look.

I haven't seen the 1940s film, but I have seen - many times - the Hitchcock 1926 silent film. I felt the echoes of it throughout the remake. As a fan of Hitchcock, I found it pretty cool that the directors didn't muck it up like so many do when they try to contrive Hitchcock-like scenes.

Simon Baker is perfectly cast as The Lodger. He looks a bit younger with dark hair and has this secretive way about him that lends mystery to the character.

Frankly, I didn't pay much attention to the shenanigans of the PD, which seemed to be a turn off for other viewers, according to reviews here. Let's face it: This is a PR nightmare for the department, so someone needs to hang for it - and that just happens to be Alfred Molina's character. It works well into this film and casts a glare of suspicion on officers who may or may not be the killer.

Overall, The Lodger remake keeps you slightly off-balance while trying to guess the whodunit. Most, I think, won't know who it is until the very last frame.

Suspenseful April 11 2009
By S.F. Foster - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Very Suspenseful! Love Simon Baker in this. Hope Davis plays a good crazy landlady. Would have liked to see more of these two together. Lots of Alfred Hitchcock type references. I would highly recommend this movie to any Alfred Hitchcock fan.

The Lodger (2009) May 6 2009
By C. A. Luster - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I am a big fan of Alfred Hitchcock's work, so I was happy to see there was a remake of this movie. Although I enjoy the old original Black & White movie, I found this updated color version quite good. I was mystified as to who the killer was until the very end. I didn't see this one coming. The help of a good cast, directing, sets, and music (reminded me of previous Hitchcock themes) made it all come together in a well rounded mystery. Good quality DVD with a few extras and decent replayability. If you enjoyed this, catch The Bedroom Window and Body Double (Widescreen Special Edition) which are reminescent of Hitchcocks style.

Zigzag Emotions Feb. 13 2009
By Lee Armstrong - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
David Ondaatje directed this update of the 1926 Hitchcock film. Alfred Molina plays the lead detective Chandler Manning. Everything is going wrong for this guy. His wife's crazy; and maybe he drove her there. His daughter doesn't like him much. He thinks his partner is gay, which doesn't please him. To top it off, he botched evidence on his last really big case. While we're caught in Manning's downhill spiral, his partner Street is played by heartthrob Shane West. Street is new on the job, has enthusiasm and thoroughly upsets his partner. Manning's daughter Amanda is played by the lovely Rachael Leigh Cook. She does a good job in her brief screen time, making us relate to dysfunctional family moments. Police Captain Smith is played by Philip Baker Hall as a grizzly old bear who snarls through his scenes on screen. Interwoven with this story is a family where the father Bunting is played by Donal Logue. Bunting is always leaving the house and seems particularly unsupportive of his wife Ellen. Ellen is played by Hope Davis. We're never sure of what the reality is here. She rents the room and seems to have a wad full of cash to show for it, but maybe not. Malcolm is the lodger played by Simon Baker. The good looking star creates an air of mystery combined with zigzag emotions. The film left me scratching my head, not quite sure of what I'd just seen. So I wished for a bit more clarity. There are some nice moments in the film. Overall, it was an average cinematic experience. Enjoy!

Some Reservations Feb. 15 2009
By EddieLove - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The classic novel inspired by the Ripper murders gets an update and a change of venue. The focus alternates between intriguing scenes between Simon Baker in the title role and Hope Davis, and standard cop fare with a miscast Alfred Molina as a Hollywood cop teamed with his callow partner. They're working the Ripper angle of a spat of Hollywood killings and note such "little known" lore about the original crimes as the fact that Jack The Ripper was never caught. Um...okay. The picture's really well shot, but there are some pretentious touches of classical music playing during the murders. The final scenes though are suspenseful and at least you don't see the resolution coming from a mile off. I just wish the picture had focused more on the Davis-Baker relationship, as the two stars are quite good.
