"The Birds" has not aged well

I loved Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds" when I saw it years ago, and was excited when I noticed it was on last night. Boy, it's aged terribly - - more a farce than thriller. Here's a good example:


  1. I dunno, I still like the's really more apocalyptic sci-fi than a Hitchcock thriller proper.

  2. You like it in a MST3K, type of way, or in a, man, this is compelling and thought-provoking kind of way?
