"You know, I'm a big Hitchcock fan. I love Hitchcock movies — "Rear Window," "Psycho," "North by Northwest," "The Man Who Knew Too Much" — but when I look at movies overall, I have to say "Star Wars," because "Star Wars" does the thing that I love the most about a movie, because the music by John Williams and this movie have that emotional thing to them, have that excitement that gets into your bones.
"That opening scene when the big ship is coming across the screen, and this huge music is accompanying that, it's just like oh my God. I remember seeing that in the theaters, my mouth was just wide open. I could not believe it.

"A young Tom Hanks would be a great Dave Matthews. That's the one that I could say definitively," Tinsley told us in an exclusive interview. "I hope Dave is flattered by that, and I hope Tom Hanks is too. I think they will be." Get More »
