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?
