Movie Review: Strangers on a Train

Alfred Hitchcock's "Strangers on a Train" was a pretty good movie. Old, but still pretty good. Not to be confused with Snakes on a Plane, or Snakes on a Train for that matter (which I didn't know existed until today) Strangers on a Train was a movie made in the 1950s. 1951 even. It's about a man named Guy who gets on a Train and meets a crazy guy. The crazy guy then proceeds to killing Guy's wife and desires Guy to kill his father in return. Sounds weird, I know.

Anyway, for a black and white movie it was actually preeetty dern decent. If you're into murder mysteries that is. If you're not, well... then you probably shouldn't watch it. The movie had it's slow parts, like a 10 minute period toward the end of the film dedicated entirely to tennis and idle chit-chat, but it also had its good moments, full of suspicion and suspense. Overall, I'd give Strangers on a Train a 6.5/10.
