The Sorcerer’s Apprentice (Alfred Hitchcock Presents)
Hitchcock is one of those names that more people know then possibly his movies. Ask the average fan to name a Hitchcock movie, and after Psycho, they might have trouble, even more will have trouble after the Birds, maybe North By Northwest and a few others. I’ll admit to only seeing a few of his movies, and none of his Black and Whites.
But recently I came into possession of a Hitchcock collection. Yup, 20 movies, a good many of them from England.
So I’m going to be working my way through these, and I’m going to be doing these a little differently. Instead of a 10 point scoring scale, I’m going to be doing a simple thumbs up and thumbs down on this one. If I can see ever getting into this one again, its getting a thumbs up.
This week, I broke out another Alfred Hitchcock Presents – I’m not proud of the fact I have not gotten another video done, but hey, have 5 kids and come see how well you plan. Silent movies are never fun either with short attention span.
The Sorcerers Apprentice is kind of a simple story, to be honest. Some idiot kid comes across a magical couple, the scary dude with the beard looks like the devil, so he’s scary, and the hot blonde wife looks like an angel, cause she’s hot. The boy quickly falls for the woman, who is having an affair, and woman, after being caught by the boy, convinces him that the Devil has her under his spell. She says that if the Boy can kill the Magician, then he can take his power and free the woman.
The ending is kind of fun, and the reason why it was pulled from the air, and never shown on network TV. The ending actually saves the show for me and gets the thumbs up from me, up until that points its a pretty standard show with a rote story. The acting is kind of uneven, and the boy is a bit annoying. I’ll go a 5 here, I enjoyed it.
