TBH I think Jay (and Mike, to a lesser degree) is being unduly harsh here. Sandra Bullock acted really well, and I didn't find that the nonlinear narrative ruined it entirely. Plenty of acclaimed films have nonlinear narratives and have worked, and I think there's value in learning how exactly something happens, even if you know it does. Is Bird Box a flawed film? Of course. Is it as bad as they say it is? I don't think so.
I blame Memes. I think the studio some how taped into the Meme Market and tricked everyone into thinking they should care.
Potentially demonetized/taken down for doing this challenge even though it's staged.
Loaded up on Botox is more like it.
nice job trashing the set
I love Jay's "he's going to knock down a wall or camera" face. 0:55
This reminds me of an SCP that I read.
My body belongs to Jay but my heart belongs to Rich
John Malkovich was RIGHT.
ya word on apostle
Meh... I found it enjoyable
As Jon Tron put it, "You gave me the fuckin' final destination of all the characters I might love, you lunatic."
This film needed Stephen King...
I thought they named the children "Boy" and "Girl" so that if they had real names, other people who may also be named that might be called out for? Wow, that doesn't make a lot of sense written down.
no links to the clips used?
That ending punchline benefitted from never being explained.
It's poetic in a way. Watching videos of the bird box challenge makes you want to kill yourself, just like the movie
The criminally insane were sociopaths/psychopaths, so they lacked empathy. They see the thing, the thing goes into their heads, and...nothing going. One of us, one of us. In other words, they were completely unaffected by the whole ordeal - they were themselves but free, not only from their prison, but also from the rules of society. Same with British guy...he acted normal, because that's what they're used to doing: social mimicry (think Dexter Morgan). It's the only aspect of the movie that made any sense to me, totally not a sociopath...
Did they had the Audacity of naming genders to the kids in 2018??? Where is all the LGBTQABCDEF ranting about that??
Sarah Paulson is not awesome. Terrible over actor imo.
A lot of repetitive criticism/comprehensive complaining about the social media presence and not a lot being discussed about the actual film, this review was weirdly tilted. I don't disagree that Birdbox isn't a masterpiece but it's not nearly as bad as you both make out. It's also pretty ironic that Jay recommends Apostle when it shares many of the same flaws. Apostle has almost zero exposition regarding it's supernatural elements, which were also largely unnecessary given the religious themes in an otherwise well made film (also ignoring the constant use of intense injury without real concequence to build tension). Birdbox did a poor job of introducing the Lovecraftian monsters, but being incomprehensible is part of the shtick and they were at least centrally relevant to the plot.
When Sandra bullock bumps into her doctor at the school for the deaf 😂😂😂 What are the chances
The message seemed all over the place, but it has one: In the first scene there's this dialogue about running from the truth; you'd think it'd be "you can't run from the truth." WRONG. At the end there's that bit about lying to the kids because otherwise life isn't worth living. The moral is straight up: The truth sucks, don't look at it. Find yourself a good lie. It's basically a reverse 'Plato's cave.' That, and bald MAGA dude is always right. Show people no mercy, or else you'll get screwed over. (Which actually feeds into the truths sucks message.) Actually, I think the best (most meta) thing about this movie's existential horror is all the dumb, wino soccer moms who find it uplifting.
Cmon people, why you gotta hate? It's a good movie, and only needed a couple really tiny changes, which could have possibly catapulted it into a better movie. Those being: A: A different adapted screenplay from an almost decent writer. B: All different actors, especially the lead. That distracting and weird plastic-surgery-face Sandra Bullocks was, well, distracting. C: A different director. D: Completely different editing, pacing, sound, score, and cinematography. E: Different catering company on-set (the rumor is that the burritos made everyone gassy, which decreased efficiency). F: Transgender representation! The lead, and all supporting actors should have been trannies. I mean, it just works! Everyone just adores them people, right? We have to! (or else) See how little it would have taken? Just the slightest of barely noticeable tweaks, and you'd have a slightly more enjoyable film.
Really want to hear your thoughts on "Glass"
Netflix basically only has netflix made movies its going down the tubes
That's... not even remotely true.
"What are you, happy?" LOL
Is Jay were one of Mike's shirts? Seems a tad big.
When I see Sandra Bulldog's mug, I can only think about how many foreskins from mutilated Korean babies are inside her face right now.
Sandra Bullock was the only thing I really like about this movie. It sucks how much you guys are bagging on her.
I've been waiting to watch this review since it came out, but hadn't seen Bird Box yet. And then I heard that I should probably watch A Quiet Place first, so I did that. And then I finally watched Bird Box, all just to watch this review which I is what I wanted to watch in the first place. And I agree with everything you said except about Sandy B cause I love her but yeah. Your reviews are better than the movies they're about a lot of the time. So thanks!
I clean my birdbox twice a week.
The film suffered from a really arbitrary set of rules. The "crazy people" twist was fine enough but the fact that the monster couldn't enter inside spaces is never explained, and then there's a specific thing that happens with one character right before they die that makes no sense except for the explanation of "lurv conquers all." The novelist character probably explains what the monster is, but none of the characters ever questions why the rules are the way they are. It's just a lazy script probably based on lazy writing, and there was a really great moment on the river where the film could've taken a dark and thought-provoking turn and it didn't, and then the ending was sunshine and roses. Really lame movie.
needs more Chunky's Chicken
Is this the first time they've ever talked about Sandra Bullock?
They should also make a film where a monster makes you crazy and murderous unless you are wearing crotchless chinos, with your junk hanging out, and a straw hat on your head. And the movie is just people going to work in their crotchless chinos and straw hats and nothing bad happening, except the odd embarrassing arousal, and some slug trails on the furniture.
Except for a guy who forgets to put on his crotchless chinos one day because he was up all night playing online video games, and he gets to work but he now has ADHD and his productivity goes down by 12%.
My one problem with A Quiet Place (which I enjoyed as a solid 7/10), was that they were able to break the rules without consequences. Once that happened, the tension dissipated for me and it became just a pretty average-good popcorn flick. Slick, but unmemorable. I will admit that they got the father-daughter relationship spot-on, but even that wasn't new, or interesting; just kind of decent; it was enough. It honestly would have been better though if the father had resented her and before what happened at the end there was a reckoning in which everyone had it all out and found a way to heal the mistakes of the past. That would have made for a much more interesting family dynamic.
Suicide Collectors is a weird, "every one is committing suicide" novel, I'd kinda like to see turned into a movie. The book has a pretty weak third act, so it's something a screen writer could improve upon.
i was worried that i was the only one who thought this movie was ok at best
The movies is worse than the book, but then again the book wasn't that great, I didn't like the main character at all in both versions. The ending was much more twisted in the book than in the movie but kinda dumbed down. I'm reading House of Leaves because I want to forget this existed. I loved John Malcovich, he's the only character I liked because he was an asshole and a realist. But it's not even a good film for a mom because my mom fell asleep watching it with the birdbox challenge! XD
Did You Say Meth-Flicks? lol
I see THREE copies of Vampire Assassin...
I couldn’t get over how much Sandra Bullock looks like Michael Jackson in this movie
I didn’t believe the NPC meme. And then I saw the Birdbox Challange.
what is the matter with Sandra bullock's face. it looks like the actress swapped faces with a mannequin.
Fuck you it’s January!
I actually enjoyed Bird box more than I did A Quiet Place. Yes, I know that's a wildly unpopular view.
go fuck yourself sandra bullock she stole janine lindmulder daugther. stupid sandra bullock i hope you die soon
so apart from having a kid or diabetes i am apparently dad
Someone explained the movie to me like if you see the monsters they show you your worst fear and you die from it. I was like shit if someone is afraid of clowns they see killer clowns. So you see your worst fear like snakes, spiders, China dolls, zombies, straight to netflix films, etc. Then I got this Happening rip off crap with no explanation if they're demons, aliens, some weird virus, nature killing us etc. I wanted the movie I got described not this.
