    The root tried saying it was about white supremacy and Forbes said it was about unwillingness to be a mom lol those people get paid to research and write and they still could look it up in 5 minutes and find out what it meant or they did and hoped others wouldn't so they could spin it to fit what they wanted lol I wish people would just let us enjoy the entertainment or at least do their job right

    Why is infinity hunting and killing people? Why is it coming out of no where? Why did it show up at this time? Why are “Blue Birds” specifically agitated by infinity? Why does it drive you crazy to the point you kill yourself and not just crazy? How do you miss something that’s infinite?

      better yet, how can some people see infinity and not kill themselves like everyone else

      Be good if he asked those questions. But oibviously he's more famous for being in a band no one has heard of.

      I think he Josh didn't really think this through, he didn't pay enough attention to the explanation his teacher gave about why do you immediately kill yourself if you imagine infinity, he just was too in a hurry and excited to write a story with the little he gathered and therefore never was able to express anything more. There are no answers to these questions, he said it himself, he just started with the mom and the kids on the boat fleeing something because he thought it was cool. Super 👍

      Great questions. Sometimes the author themselves know not what they write. I and a few of my friends so many spiritual principles all throughout the film. Some of my friends could not make it through the film at all. To each their own.

    Just watched the movie, so the creature is not the depression as many are talking about. It's the infinite. He plainlu says it. So it's actually pretty religious since infinity is one of the attributes of divinity. We might brought a lot of conclusions from that.

      Interesting. I never saw it as depression. Interesting that people see the dark force that way. My facebook page is private but I did a live last night about Bird Box and we all had a really great discussion about it. Yes I saw a lot of spiritual/Biblical principles in the movie and that does not happen often. I actually took notes. Generally tv watching is just entertainment to me.

      Infinity has connotations with mathematics and science too. Many other areas and philosophies that are not religious. Therefore, your assertion that this movie is religious based on an idealism of religious teachings is a damn reach.
