    The Day of the Triffids

    ★★★

    There are some ideas in this film which are horrifying. The concepts that a large portion of earth could be blinded by a meteor shower and of alien carniverous plants certainly are unnerving and a solid basis for a horror story.

    Despite this being a 60's horror movie, I found it to be quite humorous. I am also certain that this was unintentional by the filmmakers. For example, I could not help but laugh at the first plant attack and…

    Whew! This is a cinematic achievement. It is not just a film but also a harrowing experience.

    The camera work and cinemaphotography are a major part of this film. You feel like you are right there. The long shots without edit in this movie are super impressive.

    It is not an easy film as it shows the brutality of WW I. It is intense and your blood pressure will change more than once.

    This film should be seen on a big screen. The sound and soundtrack enhance this experience.

    Brutal, sad, honest, and an experience you will not soon forget.

    Peace, it really is worth it.

    ★★★★

    No spoilers or plot details here. Chalk me up as one of the people who enjoyed this film.
    I am reacting on feelings here and I felt happy with this and I was smiling at the end.
    I have no idea if this is how the arc was originally intended or not. Certainly neither of the two earlier films in this trilogy could be ignored. Yet, I feel an honest effort was made to please old school Star Wars fans…
