I am in the midst of perfectly enjoyable Sunday afternoon of my anniversary weekend, and I pause to make a Sunday Cinema post, just so I don’t have to make two posts tomorrow.
We began the movie watching portion of the day with Day of the Triffids (1962), which I just purchased on VHS at a rummage sale yesterday (Saturday). I saw the tail end of this movie many years ago and thought it was STUPID, laughed my head off at it, thought it was a cheesy movie and that was before I was particularly into cheesy movies. As it happens, the stuff leading up to the end is less than cheesy and pretty entertaining, although as with many movies of this era, it takes a while to get to the good stuff.
After Triffids, we went to Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956), a different kind of alien invasion story. It is a bit serious, with the interesting philosophical question of whether it is better to feel and to love than otherwise. I don’t pay too much attention to such things during Sunday afternoon movie viewing.
After Body Snatchers, Steven suggested The Birds (1963). The above was perhaps a publicity shot, although it may have been part of the party scene (don’t get your hopes up; it wasn’t that racy) (you know who you are). What Halloween movie will we pick next? A little suspense adds interest to my afternoon.
In the meantime, I hope you are all having a lovely Sunday.
