         The recent Netflix movie “Bird Box” has created a lot of buzz from teenagers and young adults. It made its debut on December 13, 2018 and starred Sandra Bullock along with other notable actors like Trevante Rhodes, Sarah Paulson, John Malkovich, Machine Gun Kelly, and many more. It’s about an invisible entity that can make people have hallucinations if they are exposed to it, and those hallucinations cause people to kill themselves unless they have their eyes covered with something like a blindfold. The movie had many twists and turns leaving each character to question the others honesty and true character.

        Many people had negative opinions about the movie, most contributing to the fact that it was unrealistic or that it was too similar to other movies they’ve seen, one of which being “A Quiet Place” which starred Emily Blunt and John Krasinski.

         So what do I think? Well, I kept seeing images, memes, and references to the movie all over social media so I decided that I would check it out. I didn’t really pay attention to the critics writing bad reviews about it, instead I wanted to form my own opinion of it. To be honest, I personally liked it and understood why it was getting so much attention. I don’t want to give too much of the movie away, although I do agree though that some aspects of it were a little unrealistic, but isn’t that the point of a sci-fi movie? It’s fake. It’s unrealistic. It’s what people like. It makes people think and use their imaginations of those unknown possibilities. Although, sometimes it may lead too far. With all the attention the movie got from trying to “stay alive” by only wearing a blindfold,  it led to the “Bird Box Challenge” which encouraged people to try daily activities blindfolded. At first the challenge was something fun for people to do, but then it got dangerous. People were trying to recreate a scene from the movie where the actors drove blindfolded, but it caused many car crashes and fatalities. Netflix later put out a tweet telling users not to attempt the Bird Box Challenge.

       Overall, if you’re sitting at home scrolling through endless lists of movies right now wondering what to watch, I would suggest Netflix’s “Bird Box”….. just don’t let it get to your head though and to the point that you would put yourself and other innocent people in danger.
