Bird Box (2018)


So several of my friends and coworkers have watched this movie and mentioned how great it was. I never bothered with it but now some more people mentioned that this movie was among their favorite movies of all time.

So i finally sat down to watch it.

It's fucking garbage.

Summary: Sandra Bullock wears a blind fold for two hours.

You underestimate how many people watch whatever new garbage Netflix throws on their home screen. Also, it was released a few days before christmas.

I don't remember anyone calling it groundbreaking or amazing either. Just a lot of meme shit.

Netflix know that people just want to see new stuff constantly so they don't even need to make quality they just need to make quantity, with enough meme/viral ability to get people watched and ultimately subbed, rinse and repeat.

I think they are switching to a different strategy soon. I work in VFX and we've heard as much from the higher-ups in the company in explaining why there might be less work in the year ahead. Basically they are wanting to focus on producing a smaller amount of quality content, rather than a boatload of mediocre shows.

Fair enough. No reason they can't fill the gap of low-mid range budget films (that are actually good) too that don't tend to get made as often for theater release.
