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.

A great classic

Since I’m a huge fan of Alfred Hitchcock, of course, I was really eager to check this flick and I had some really high expectations. Eventually, it didn’t turn out to be one of my favorite movies from this great master. Indeed, to be honest, I do think that the concept was a little bit limited preventing this movie from being truly great but it was still pretty awesome and it completely deserv... read more

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

Slant’s 100 Greatest Horror Films – 2018 Edition (100 movies items)

"Every Alfred Hitchcock film could be said to be about the world’s fragile appearance of balance, and how complete chaos seems to be just a shot away. And arguably no Hitchcock film expresses that sense of breakdown in as wide and vivid a scale as The Birds, his stunning vision of nature itself turning ferociously against humanity. Startling with peculiarly Antonioniesque scenes of would-be romantic couple Melanie (Tippi Hedren) and Mitch (Rod Taylor) complacently pecking at each other around B"

" 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"
