Otherwise, it is well done and worth watching.
Watched it when I was 11, I think. Terrified me. Now I just find it really entertaining to watch. Never looked at groups of birds the same way, however. To this day, when I see a huge group of birds on a wire or some other place, I'll say to David, "THE BIRDS IS COMING!! THE BIRDS IS COMING!!" (The reason for the bad grammar is that "Mad" Magazine did a parody of the movie and said that in it.)
I tend to like some Hitchcock movies, however. Strangers on a Train, North by Northwest, Man Who Knew Too Much (newer version), Rear Window, Dial M for Murder (I think that's the one which has a fax machine in it--decades before faxes were used!), and The Lady Vanishes come to mind.
