Hitchcock classic!

"Why are they doing this? Why are they doing this? They said when you got here the whole thing started. Who are you? What are you? Where did you come from! I think you're evil. EVIL!"

As Hitchcock's career progressed, he created some of his finest work. The Birds is a thriller of reference superiority, and is undoubtedly one of Hitchcock's best films.

Initial Thought: I figured I should check out a supposedly reliable classic that I've never seen. I always enjoy a good Hitchcock film. I really should have seen this one already. I'm such a slacker. Better late than never though.

Characters/Acting: Some of the actors here are Hitchcock regulars. I'm really only familiar with a few like Tippi Hedren or Veronica Cartwright. There are s... read more

The very first Hitchcock movie I ever saw.
During my early years on this planet, my dad used to pack our family into the panel-sided Buick station wagon & take us to the drive-in theatre where we were exposed to alot of those 70's campy "when animals attack" movies, like Food Of The Gods, Night Of The Leapus, Swarm, etc...
Goofy escapist fare of whose cheese I ended up developing a... read more

1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die (2017) (627 movies items)

" Notes: To be honest, it didn’t turn out to be one of my favorite movies from Alfred Hitchcock but it was still pretty awesome. Indeed, I think that the concept was a little bit limited preventing this movie from being truly great but it still completely deserves its stellar reputation. Nowadays, one thing that really bores me is that, in thriller or horror movies, they spend so much time trying to rationalize the most preposterous things (the best example I can think of is ‘The Ring’ rem"

" This one is my favourite of the ones where Hitchcock introduces the film to us. It demonstrates to me that he could've had a second career as a comedian."

Alfred Hitchcock Films - Ranked (53 movies items)

" Hitchcock manages to implant a few genuine moments of terror in a film with an extremely silly premise, but those moments are few and far between in a film that suffers from sluggish pacing and an unnecessarily stretched plot. "

Movie Reviews (601-650) (50 movies items)

" Creepy birds give a Good atmosphere to this "when birds attack" horror movie. Teppi Hedren show already in the first scene why sometimes the mother outshine the daughter, but I find Suzanne Pleshette as the most gorgeous one as the teacher you wish you had in school but never saw there. Rod Taylor is also underrated in an excellent supporting role at the height of his career. Some dated effects will provide a laugh on teenagers that don't know better and think computers have exited since the be"
