The Birds I'm surprised at because apparently there was serious work to do on the optical effects to bring it up to scratch. The blu-ray wasn't exactly stellar so this one is a surprise to me.

I’d say visually The Birds didn’t age well, unfortunately.
It didn't get a great restoration on the blu-ray a few years back and a lot of fans weren't happy. It would need serious work.
