    I had to go with "Yeah, he's good". Hitchcock made some of my favorite films ("Strangers on a Train", "Psycho", "Shadow of a Doubt", "Frenzy" and "North by Northwest"), but he did make quite a few mediocre films ("Topaz", "Marnie", "Family Plot"). When he was on his game though, he was unbeatable.

    When it comes to Hitchcock and Argento, I feel like Hitchcock is the better director. Still...I do tend to watch "Suspiria" at least once a year, and Argento does have a way with visceral imagery. Perhaps it's more of an apples and oranges situation, and I have to take into account that Argento is still directing films, so opinions could change.

    Never got into Hitchcock at all. I find his movies boring and the suspense elements involved to be simplistic, vastly overworked, and uninteresting.
