    To be honest, that bird attack on the schoolyard looks a lot like this:

    It's still pretty OK, though. The last 20 minutes are great.

    Maybe I'd like it more if I wasn't expecting it to be one of the best movies ever made.

    The Birds film was not a favorable choice of mine compared to the other films I have seen from this decade. As seen that the film was called an Alfred Hitchcock masterpiece, I had expected this film to be amazing but, was very disappointed. The only part of this film that was enjoyable was the enhanced technical work of the time.
    The part of this movie that made me very disappointed was the acting. Compared to the other films of…

    The first hour is tedious as he sets up some awful people/characters, some of the writing is BAD but it isnt helped by such poor actors as Tippy and Rod. There's a great scene in a diner but mostly it's all just ineffectual flailing and wailing, apart from Jessica Tandy who seems to have decided she is above such things and stands in the corner silently whenever the birds attack. Good on her.

    A highly unexpected horror film from Hitchcock. Wonderful plot, and definitely a class of art-direction.

    The Birds- 4.5/5

    The thing about us humans is that right from the beginning of our evolution, we’ve constantly under-valued the beauty of this world and taken everything Mother Nature has given us for granted, as once Mother Nature takes her revenge it is deemed to cause utter menace as shown in ‘The Birds’ where Alfred Hitchcock has given a horrifying, pragmatic look at what will happen if these seemingly ‘harmless’ birds decide to turn on us humans and the…

    Only Hitchcock could make birds so terrifying.

    Δυο συμπεράσματα για τα "Πουλία" του Χίτσκοκ:
    1) Ώστε έτσι δημιουργήθηκε η πουλοφοβία!
    2) Ο τύπος ήταν... Psycho!

    I think I thought I had "seen" this movie before, when in reality I caught a couple scenes here and there on television or in documentaries about film history, and watched The Bird II on cable when I was growing up, and filled in the rest in my imagination. What a masterpiece! Top five Hitchcock for sure, and dare I say, a step above Psycho? I'll say it!

    Easily captivating as a budding flirtatious romantic con game between Melanie (Tippi…

    Psycho might be a better film overall, but it works primarily as a thriller for me. I never found it a horror or particularly scary. The Birds, meanwhile, doesn't only sustains a superb atmosphere and a terrifying feeling of being open to attacks at any moment, but it also contains the only moment in Hitchcock's oeuvre that still chills me to the bone: Mitch's mother Lydia coming upon a neighbor's bedroom destroyed by birds' attack, before she noticed his feet…

    For me at least, this simply does not hold up after all these years. That's usually not the case in terms of Hitchcock, but it certainly is here. The scene where Hedren sits outside the school as the birds slowly congregate is probably the only still great scene in the whole scene. A bummer, really.

    Now what I want to do here is make a comparison. And to do that I need another film with almost the same premise and to be fair, one that comes close to the quality of this one. Now a lot of people say The Birds is one of Hitchcock's most memorable films, the special effects, the build up of the characters and the suspence etcetera. Stuff people kept talking about after the film was done. And to use more…

    The Birds is able transcend its genre due to its well layered tension, and its certain sense of ambiguity. It overshadows its minor flaws with its dedicated cast, and terrific direction. Hitchcock is not called "the master of suspense," for nothing.
