Trent Reznor has dissed America's sweetheart Sandra Bullock's monster hit Netflix movie Bird Box.

In an interview with Revolver, the Nine Inch Nails frontman, who composed the score for the film with collaborator Atticus Ross, said, "When we got immersed in it, it felt like some people were phoning it in. And you're stuck with a film editor who had real bad taste. That's kind of our barricade to getting stuff in the film."

The rocker added, "And the final icing on the s*** cake was we were on tour when they mixed it. And they mixed the music so low, you couldn't hear it anyway. So it was like, that was a ... laughs That was a f***ing waste of time. Then we thought, no one's going to see this f***ing movie.

"And, of course, it's the hugest movie ever in Netflix."

The original Bird Box was a sensation when it came out in 2018. It's been watched in more than 80 million homes as of this year.

Youthful looking Bullock, 55, has had her share of critically lambasted screen efforts, including Speed 2, Miss Congeniality 2, and All About Steve, but B-movie-ish Bird Box struck gold.

The star who adopted two kids, plays Malorie, a woman in the late stages of pregnancy, in Bird Box.

Bullock's character discovers a mysterious force has gripped the country, prompting everyone who sees it to kill themselves—and she holes up with a group of people hoping to survive.

It's not the first time Reznor has been overly candid—he's admitted being a "smart***" on the Internet.

"A couple of my comments became real headlines–like talking s*** about Chris Cornell, which I wouldn't have done if I had realized what would've happened," Reznor, 54, admitted of the former lead singer of Soundgarden, who killed himself in 2017.

The goth rock star, while talking about his involvement with Beats and Apple Music, also blasted Ashton Kutcher's acclaim in the tech world.

"I don't want to hear about 'Ashton Kutcher's a f***ing tech genius.' I don't give a s*** about that. He seems like an a******."

Despite Reznor's criticisms of Bird Box, he and Ross have released two versions of the soundtrack.
