  1. Bird Box is what Bright was in 2017: Major stars, beautiful visuals & a basic story. Sandra Bullock does a good job here conveying lost & despair in this screwed up world. The rest of the cast is really good here, as well. However, just like Bright, I don’t have a reason to watch it again. One other thing, I do wish we got a chance to see this monster.

    Hi Rod and Karen,

    Much like you, I wound up watching Bird Box because I could not go online without risking being spoiled. I agree that this is a three star movie. I am with a Karen in feeling it is too long. I usually don’t mind lengthy movies, living in NY, the longer film gives me more bang for the buck, and that matters. I paused the film to use the restroom and when I saw there was more than 40 minutes left, I thought Netflix had lost its damn mind. I also agree that not seeing the creatures was a big mistake. I wanted to know what was behind the madness. I also both liked and disliked the ending. I liked it because it made me realize how thinking of the blind should have been the first thing that occurred to me, but I was surprised by the twist. I didn’t like the ending because Sandra and the kids are still sighted, so the danger remains for them. I also liked Sandra’s character renaming Boy, Tom.
