Well, not to me.
Having watched it for the first time yesterday, I was, frankly, a bit dissapointed. Sure, artistically, it was very well done. The crows on the climbing frame scene is simply iconic, but as a whole, it felt incredibly dated- in fact, at some points, I couldn't stop myself from laughing at how bad some points of the film were.
The birds footage, clearly just layered over the actual film footage with very little sense of proportion, meant that at points, 3 foot long birds would be hovering over tiny children, or about to attack old ladies.
Oh and plotwise it's equally hilarious and infuriating too- after all that hassle with the reign of the zombie crows, and all that trouble they went to, to shelter themselves from the bird equivalent of the Blitz, what do the family do??
The just open the door, walk through the gathering crowds of murderous pigeons and... very slowly drive into the distance.
What kind of an ending is that?! Nothing happens! One of the most famous films in the world, and it has the biggest anti-climax of anything I've ever watched.

My favourite film is "What's Eating Gilbert Grape?" because it managed to crack my stone heart, and made me cry- which is pretty difficult; I never cry during films!
