The movie Bird Box has taken the internet by storm, with so many good reviews and many memes. Is the movie really as good as people say it is? A form was sent out to students discussing what their thoughts are on the movie.
When asked what their first thoughts about the movie were, Lauren Hoerstkamp, junior, responded with, “What is it even about? Why do they have to wear blindfolds?”
Haylee Struckhoff, junior, replied with, “What kind of name is Bird Box?”
Alexander Trentmann, senior, stated, “All I saw before watching it has been memes, which are pretty funny, and that's it.”
“I just heard about it from my mom, and my initial thought was that it was going to be a weird sci-fi movie,” replied Alexis Sidwell, junior.
“At first I thought, ‘That sounds like a weird movie,’" responded Diana Ribera, senior.
Diana Ribera then shared who her favorite character was. “I would have to say my favorite was Charlie. Also, Olympia's daughter since she was so cute and innocent.”
The students then gave their predictions on what they thought would happen in the end of Bird Box.
Lauren Hoerstkamp stated, “They would eventually find what this thing is and then somehow kill it and everything would be back to normal.”
Sheny Delgado, sophomore, predicted, “I'm going to be honest and say straight up that they were not [going to] make it past the rapids. Like, game over for you guys.”
“I was really scared that she was going to actually pick one of her kids to die, but I kind of figured she wouldn´t and they'd all make it to safety,” responded Alexis Sidwell.
Lastly, NHHS was asked was the movie as good as people said it was.
Lauren Hoerstkamp said, “No, everyone said it was really scary and I did not find it scary at all.”
Sheny Delgado responded with, “For me, it was because I have a thing for thrillers and suspense, so I say if you like those types of movies, that it is definitely worth watching.”
Alexander Trentmann stated, “It was hyped up a lot, but it was still pretty interesting and thrilling.”
Alexis Sidwell replied by saying, “I was over break when it came out and watched it on the 26th before all the memes and popularity came out. But after watching it, I do believe it's as good as people say, especially for a Netflix Original movie.”
It seems Bird Box has had some pretty good reviews lately. A majority of NHHS seems to have liked the movie and its suspense. With the movie almost being done talked about, this is NHHS’s responses over the movie and their comments towards it. As the year has just begun, there will be more movies out there for us to enjoy and talk about.
