Kaw: Directed by Sheldon Wilson. With Sean Patrick Flanery, Stephen McHattie, Kristin Booth, Rod Taylor. A small town is attack by ravens and doesn’t know why the ravens are working together.

“This is a reworking of Alfred Hitchcocku0026#39;s u0026quot;The Birdsu0026quot;. And, this is a great example of why I prefer classic movies. The Birds started out developing the characters. You understood them, and even to care for them. Gradually Hitchcock built up the suspense and he anticipated the audience reactions. The Birds had real characters, complete with quirks, flaws, problems, emotions and feelings. You got to really know the citizens and visitors of Bodega Bay. It also had a plot, (imagine that), genuine suspense, atmosphere, humor, a riveting score and masterful Hitch touches throughout. It wasnu0026#39;t about special effects, gore and shock, although he incorporated that into The Birds, it is not what made the film work.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eKaw isnu0026#39;t an awful film, but it lacks just about everything I mentioned above. It lacks a heart and soul, and especially character development. There are no intriguing characters. Itu0026#39;s obvious and predictable. There isnu0026#39;t much suspense if you know whatu0026#39;s going to happen. Itu0026#39;s watchable, I wasnu0026#39;t bored. Best of all, it helped me appreciate the classics even more. Watch this, then The Birds. Youu0026#39;ll see what makes a film great, rather than just merely passable.”
