Sometimes I Watch Old Movies

And by sometimes I mean…a lot of the time?

I’m kind of a movie fanatic. Not a film buff. Film buffs are way more sophisticated in their tastes. I basically have the worst possible taste in movies. The sillier and more overwrought, the better.

In pursuit of #17 on my 31 Before ‘13 bucket list, I watched a little movie called The Birds.

 

Here’s a clip.

 

If you're thinking, wow, that movie looks awesome, you are totally right. It is.

My only complaint…for the first third of the movie, I thought it was going to be about how Melanie Daniels is a crazy stalker who somehow manages to track down the vacation home address for a lawyer she has only met once and then proceeds to drive to Bodega Bay, rent a boat, and then sneak into his house to leave him…some birds? (Spoiler alert: It’s apparently not about that.)

Anyway, I loved it. It’s my third Hitchcock film (after Rebecca and Rope). Next on my list, Vertigo and North by Northwest.

Anyone else watch old movies? Anyone have a favorite?

love, elizabeth

I definitely have to start watching old movies.. I love Gone with the wind, it's my favorite, but I am ashamed to say that I didn't watch some classics like Casablanca, The Birds...

You brought back such memories for me! My brothers and I used to watch The Birds every time it was on tv when we were kids and it scared me so badly every time that I slept on the floor in their room for a week so I wouldn't have to be alone!
