The memes are everywhere, it’s all anyone is talking about and so this week I decided to finally watch Birdbox and give you guys my thoughts and feelings in my little film/series review.
For those of you who haven’t seen Birdbox yet, it is a psychological thriller written by Netflix that takes you on a journey of survival with a mother and her two children, after the world is taken over by an unseen demonic force. The film is based off of the idea that ‘what the eyes cannot see, cannot hurt you’ in which case the people who see the demonic force end up killing themselves, and those who can’t see them are not harmed. This explains why in all the memes you guys have seen, with main actress Sandra Bullock and her two children, they are wearing blindfolds.
Personally I would rate this film an 8.5 out of 10. I have been really shocked by the bad reviews of this film, because I feel like the concept is so real and so relatable in this day and age that I thought more people would have appreciated it. However this may be due to the fact that others may have interpreted the film very differently, and may have a different outlook on the ideas it conveys.
The acting was outstanding, and each character within the film played a valuable role. With so much suspense at times, I really enjoyed the elements of humour that would allow you to enjoy that film just that little bit more. And lastly I thought the ending was amazing, it brought everything together so nicely.
For me Birdbox and the concept of ‘what the eyes cannot see, cannot hurt you’ was a massive eye opener and also made me think of how I can use that in 2019 to have an even better year. If I can’t see anything bad or negative then nothing can hurt me, and so going forward I must only see the good in every situation. I know personally for me this is going to be challenge but I know once I get in the habit of doing it, it will be life changing.
