The Seagulls!


Movie number 9. Released in 1963 The Birds is by far the most Hilarious movie Hitchcock has made! I’m not kidding here, I’m still laughing every time I remember those seagulls pecking the kids to the ground or dragging them up a hill!! Or who can forget the “Photoshopped” birds inside the house? When the actors started going “NO little-harmless-bird-that’s-not-even-here-in-the-first-place,don’t “attack’ me!

TheBirds4

” I’m not going to  elaborate on this… Melanie Daniels (Tippi Hedren) is some kind of practical-joker and when one of her practical jokes backfires in a pet shop she decides to “embarrass” the man who spoiled her joke(Mitch Brenner (Rod Taylor)) by delivering two lovebirds to him. Yeah… She finds out who he is and where he lives (stalker much!) and takes the birds to his house…or so she thinks. It turns out he’s very hard to find and she has to go through a lot of trouble in the small town where he spends his weekends. Meanwhile, in Bodega Bay, (that’s where she is) birds start to “viciously” attack people and scare them (they actually are a bit scary at first) but like one of Barney’s stories,things get surreal… Like I said, a group of seagulls attack a group of kids and they infiltrate a house by entering through the chimney,they fill the house  and attack everyone inside… to make a long story short,after a few more attack and a terrified Bodega Bay a wise old lady informs us that the attacks are nature’s revenge for what we’re doing to the environment… In the end the birds don’t stop,which is a very important thing about the movie meaning that once nature is angry it can’t stop until it delivers its message blah blah. The main characters escape Bodega Bay,though.Yay for them.

The movie is considered to be the first movieto tackle environmental issues which is big,and it also is a very good movie with a great message about respecting nature! …..     I get that,I just can’t keep from laughing every time I see it! The bird attacks are just outrageous! (lol face)! If you watch it, you’ll see what I mean…Oh those seagulls!

That was for today’s movie,Hitchcock and not just any Hitchcock,The Birds!You seriously should watch it, your opinion about it could be completely different from mine,e.g. my mom’s been scarred for life  because of that movie!
Now,the  music! Hmm… What about Celine Dion and some of the most legendary ballads of all time like “My Heart Will Go On” and “It’s All Coming Back to Me Now” !? And if you remembered Celine by watching the Titanic 3D then I got Nightwish for you, I know I didn’t keep my promise about Nightwish but now it’s their time to shine! Everyone of their songs(or at least their most popular ones) are mandatory! (strict tone)
Quotes of the day are Hitchcock’s :”Revenge is sweet and not fattening.” and “The more successful the villain, the more successful the picture.”
