I haven’t seen any version of Fargo :surprised

Birdbox – 7/10

Like others have said this film felt and looked very similar to A Quiet Place, but with some key differences. In A Quiet Place the characters can’t produce sound because it attracts the big monsters, but the beings in Birdbox cause you to go mad (and commit suicide) if you look at them. So they have to wear blindfolds whenever they go outside. You can’t even look at security footage lol.

The premise was interesting but: they never actually showed us the monsters (aside from a madman’s Lovecraftian drawings) nor did they explain what they were. I guess they’re simply beings from another dimension that humans cannot grasp or comprehend, causing them to go mad. Interestingly, people who were already insane prior to their arrival were not affected in the same way.

The cast was terrific, Bullock included. I just wish we saw more of Sarah Paulson. Also, they totally should have listened to the old man.
