Bird Box:

Cool concept, but concepts are a dime a dozen. The exploration of that concept is everything. And they explored this concept with silly dialogue, phoned-in delivery, and some plot contrivances here and there that strained credulity. I feel like I've seen this movie already. Ooh, a stranger desperately raps at the door of our cast of apocalyptic survivors, and the question of whether to trust him or not divides them and increases the tension. Is he evil, or not? I end up not caring either way, and the reveal directly contradicts the film's own established rules about the symptoms of the infected (spoiler: he's the only infected guy who doesn't get the crazy eyes, but they suddenly appear after they reveal that he's evil, lol).

Why the fuck was everybody talking about this movie? Feels like another spec script that a studio rushed into production before letting the writer iron out the kinks and develop it further. Did JJ Abrams have anything to do with this one? Because it feels just like another one of the movies he takes, orders rewritten to be more Abramy, and pushes onto some random director.

Now I'm sad because Upstream Color reminds me of that one girl I like

Yeah this sucked wet donkey fux, huh

So many missed opportunities. It coulda been compelling, but instead it was so so dumb. Plus friekin shallow. And i did not believe sandra bullocks reluctant Mom arc one fucken bit, not even for a second, and especially not during her bizarre climactic speech at the girl in the woods

Please everyone donít watch this movie or even talk about it to anyone, letís forget this ever happened
