Bird Box
« on: December 29, 2018, 11:19:34 AM »
This is the newest Netflix hyped up movie. It stars Sandra Bullock with a great supporting cast of John Malkovich, Jacki Weaver, Sarah Paulson, Tom Hollander, BD Wong, and a few other well known actors. There is something taking over the world that if you look at it, it drives you to commit suicide.

The cast is fantastic, and there is good tension. The script is by the books and nothing special. The characters do stupid things only to move the story on in dumb ways. 2 of the characters are written off by just taking a car and driving off for no reason at all even though they know about what's going on outside the house everyone is staying at.

If it wasn't for the cast, this movie wouldn't be anything special.

I liked it as a middle of the road Lovecraftian horror. Didn't love it but didn't hate it. That said I don't think it deserves a fraction of the ridiculous hate it's getting online. Also probably the only movie with Bullock that I've enjoyed or wanted to finish watching all the way through.

I didn't like it at all. The parts with Malkovich were hilarious though.

I was digging it for about the first thirty minutes but it just kinda falls flat on its face.
