“Horror” Scenes That I Love: The Birds Attack in Birdemic

To be honest, when it comes to bad movies, 2010’s Birdemic is kind of overrated.

I mean, yes — it is such an amazingly inept film that you do have to watch it at least once.  And yes, I do occasionally still find myself singing that “hanging out with my family” song to myself.

But compared to something like The Room or April Rain, Birdemic is actually a pretty dull film.  I’ve watched it maybe four or five times and it’s always been with a bit of reluctance.  The Room, on the other hand, is a film that you can watch over and over again.

(Or, at least you could until The Disaster Artist came out.  As brilliant as The Disaster Artist was, I kinda lost interest in The Room after watching it.  Incredibly, I haven’t gone to one showing of The Room this year.  Actually. now I’m feeling guilty about that.  I guess I’ll have to watch The Room sometime tonight.  Anyway….)

That said, there are a few scenes from Birdemic that are always good for a laugh.  Personally, I enjoy this one.  Just watch those birds attack!

Scenes that I love: Let’s Celebrate National Bird Day With An Epic Scene From Birdemic!

Happy National Bird Day!

Today seems like a good day to share a scene from the twentieth best film ever made about a sudden, inexplicable bird attack, 2010’s Birdemic!

In this classic scene, four humans battle a flock of rampaging birds.  Unfortunately, it would appear that none of the humans have been properly trained in how to use a coat hanger to battle low-budget CGI.


Dance Scenes That I Love: Hanging Out With My Family From Birdemic


Hi there!

As I sit here writing this, I am the most tired girl in the world but I could not let this day pass without sharing one of my favorite dance scenes.  In this romantic scene from the infamous environmental “horror” film Birdemic, our main characters end a perfect day by dancing to a song called Hanging Out With My Family.

My favorite part of this scene?

The invisible backup singers.

Enjoy and salud!

Scenes That I Love: Birdemic

There’s been a lot of talk about the end of the world recently.  In fact, a lot of people seem to be convinced that the world is going to end sometime later today. In the face of such negativity, it seems to me that we need to celebrate movies that remind us why we even bother to wake up in the morning and leave our homes.

One such movie is the 2008 epic Birdemic: Shock and Terror.  While the film itself deals with what happens when a bunch of birds go on a rampage, it still finds the time to highlight some of the good things about life.

Today, I want to highlight two scenes that I love from Birdemic.

In this first one, we’re reminded that, even in bad economic times, the corporate life can be a rewarding one.

This second scene celebrates the mystery of love and the excitement of flirtation.

And, just because I love you, here’s a bonus scene from a totally unrelated movie!

(That movie, by the way, was The Room.)

12 Months Down

Hi!  So, guess what today is?  *sigh*  Yes, smartass, it is Sunday but that’s not what I was looking for.  *shaking head*

It’s my anniversary!  That’s right — one year ago today, I posted my first review on this site and twelve months and 243 posts later, I have yet to shut up.

So, I was wondering — what should I do to observe this occasion?  Well, I guess I could so what most people would do and not make a big deal out of it but — well, I’m incapable of not making a big deal out of stuff.  Briefly, I considered posting a nude picture as my way of saying thank you but who wants to see that, right?  So, as I woke up this morning from my usual 2 hours of sleep, I asked myself, “Lisa, what are you going to do?”

Well, for the most part, I’ve observed the occasion by being kinda lazy.  Seriously, I’ve spent today in my beloved Hello Kitty robe (pictured above, it’s so comfy!), curled up on my couch with my feet tucked underneath me.  I’ve been watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer on Chiller. 

Of course, to be honest, watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer always makes me want to go out and like start kicking people out of the hope that they’ll turn out to be vampire or a demon or a Riley.  And since, I’m just a teensy bit more klutzy than Buffy and Faith, that show has indirectly been responsible for a lot of sprained ankles.

Anyway, I’ve decided to observe my anniversary by doing two things.  First off, I’ve read through my 243 previous posts and I’ve selected ten that I think pretty much tell you all you need to know about both who I am and my own taste in film.  And here they are:

1) Film Review: Welcome Home Brother Charles (dir. by Jaama Fanaka) (posted on April 4th, 2010) — My first ever review

2) 10 Reasons Why I Hated Avatar (posted on April 21st, 2010) — In which I explain why I’m right and everyone else is wrong.

3) Too Sordid To Ever Be Corrupted (posted on August 1st, 2010) — My manifesto in which I explain why I love the grindhouse.

4) Titanic: In Retrospect (posted on October 6th, 2010) — In which I discover whether or not Titanic is still as good as I thought it was when I was 12.

5) Review: Black Swan (dir. by Darren Aronofsky) (posted on December 9th, 2010) — Out of all the reviews I’ve written so far, this is my personal favorite.

6) Do Critics Matter? (posted on December 9th, 2010) — In which I attack the critical establishment

7) What Lisa Watched Last Night: The Perfect Teacher (posted on December 27th, 2010) — In which I reveal that I’m obsessed with Lifetime movies

8 ) If Lisa Marie Determined The Oscar Nominees (posted on January 22nd, 2010) — In which I come up with a much more interesting ballot than the Academy.

9) Lisa Marie’s Latest You Tube Obessesion (posted on January 27th, 2010) — In which I prove once again that I have silly obsessions

10) Lisa Marie Takes a Sucker Punch (dir. by Zack Snyder) (posted on March 27th, 2011) — In which I defend the most unfairly maligned movie of 2011.

And secondly, as I think I’ve made clear here, I love trailers.  Quite often, I’d rather watch the trailer than the film itself.  So, here’s the trailer for a film that, at the suggestion of the Trash Film Guru, I will be watching and reviewing at some point in the near future — Birdemic: Shock and Terror.


And, on that note, let me just extend my sincere thanks to everyone who has read anything I’ve written over the past year.  I’m especially  thankful to those of you who have taken the time to comment and let me know your opinion (except for Vermont Fran and Outraged Bob, who were kinda humorless and boring about it).  I’ve had a wonderful time this year, sharing and interacting and here’s hoping that this next year will be even better!

Love ya!
