    Finally got around to watching the Netflix original movie Bird Box recently, and found it to have plot holes, and it left me quite unsatisfied at the end.

    I won't spoil the ending for those who haven't yet seen it, but it just seemed a bit cliche. While critics and friends were raving over this horror film (which wasn't all that scary, to be honest) I'm comforted to know that I wasn't alone in finding flaws with its premise and plot.

    Thought this was a very interesting take on the movie, and if you've seen it, what are your thoughts?

    ''In Bird Box's vision of Eden for survivors of the rapture, there's no place for people with psychological disabilities.''

    I thought it was OK. I liked A Quiet Place (with Jim "The Office" Krasinski) better.

    By cliche ending, do you mean predictable?

    Same. Not a perfect film, but it felt more realistic than Bird Box. BB also had a few obvious plot holes, I really hate plot holes!

    Sort of. Cliche as in ...''they all lived happily ever after.'' Cue the harps.

    She names the kids at the end, the final destination looked like a paradise, etc. It felt like a director from the Hallmark channel, took over the ending.

    What do you think of the article I linked? Do you see any connection to this film? I thought that was an interesting take on it, not sure though if the writers of BB had that in mind, though. I'm not really sure what the moral of the story was, to be honest - but there were the usual takeaways as with any post-apocalyptic film, that kept my interest.

    Did you know that there was a BB challenge? People were blindfolding themselves after seeing the movie, and going about their everyday life - even driving whilst blindfholded. Netflix supposedly issued an announcement urging/imploring people to ''stop the BB challenge.'' lol

    I did wonder how I'd make it, if I were in a similar circumstance, needing to remain blindfolded, and would I have been tempted to peek?

    How does one budgie jump to avoid potholes? (this looks effective however im not sure the average person could afford to feed a budgie the size of a small building)
