Finally I got the chance to watch the superpopular Netflix original movie Bird Box. Even though the critics have been negative, I was positively surprised.
Bird Box has been a giant success for Netflix. More than 50 million people streamed it the first week after it was released, and it has gotten tons of attention in media. In the recent days, it has taken off completely, due to the so-called #birdboxchallenge in which people try to walk around blindfolded doing different tasks. That is kind of cool, but yesterday Netflix actually warned their fans about it, saying that it is dangerous and can cause big accidents if people do not watch out.
It might be dangerous, but it has gotten articles written about it in newspapers and online magazines all across the world, giving even more attention to the already popular movie. Congratulations to Netflix, this has been a giant success, even if there have been some negative critics written about the actual movie!
Haven’t seen Bird Box yet?
Would you like to watch Bird Box on Netflix, or maybe you are considering it? Is Bird Box a movie for you?
If you like somewhat scary movies, Bird Box falls into that category. It isn’t a horror movie, but it is scary and it might cause you some trouble if you do not like sleeping in the darkness alone after watching scary movies. Personally, I had no trouble sleeping afterwards, but I know people who have had some trouble and also stopped watching the movie along the way as they found it to be a little bit too scary.
The story in itself is really interesting, and you are stuck in front of the screen along the way to find out what’s going on, what is causing it, and what will be the solution to it all.
There are lots of famous actors taking part in the movie, so Sandra Bullock isn’t the only valid reason for watching this movie. John Malkovich, Travante Rhodes, Sarah Poulson, Rosa Salazar, Tom Hollander, and also Danielle Macdonald (who also had a part in another Netflix original movie that premiered in December 2018, Dumplin’), and several others.
You can watch Bird Box on Netflix worldwide, which means that you do not need to change your Netflix region in order to stream it online.
Have you seen Bird Box already? Do you agree with me? (some spoilers)
I had an amazing time watching Bird Box on Netflix. The movie grabbed hold of me from the first second, and it didn’t lose its grip before it was finished.
Unfortunately, the end didn’t answer all those unanswered questions, and therefore I felt like a big empty whole was left at the end of the movie. It doesn’t make me change my original opinion about the movie (that it is a great one), but it still feels like it could have been even greater if they had managed to finish the movie in an even better way.
One of the main questions that I missed an answer to was:
- Will this “monster” rule the world forever, or will this phenomena come to an end, and thus make life turn back to normal ever again?
Anyway, congratulations to Netflix on Bird Box – it was a great movie! And now I look forward to more fantastic Netflix original productions in the future.
