222 Thoughts While Watching: Bird Box

Happy first Friday of 2019 Storytellers! Today is a super exciting day because not only is it Friday (hallelujah) but it also just so happens to be Fictionally Sam‘s 1 Year Blogoversary! I honestly am shocked that Its been an entire year since this whole oasis has begun. I have made so many amazing friends through this in the book community and have found so many equally amazing blogs along the way. This has become a second home to me and the people I have met along this journey have become like family–so from the bottom of my heart, thank you. Thank you for the encouragement and the love and support! You guys are a 10/10 would recommend .
Now, with the mushy stuff aside let’s get down to today’s post! I went back and forth between what I wanted to post for my Blogoversary–do the typical thank you post, a tag, etc.– but then I thought “why don’t I bring back Movies and TV?”
Movies and TV have been a huge part of my life for as long as a I can remember, and it was my field of study in University. At the beginning of this blog I wanted to include this part of me and share my thoughts and feelings about the stories I consumed through this medium just as I would with books, however, ya girl here got hella insecure and put them in her abyss known as drafts…and never published them. But, today I thought it would be great to finally step out of my comfort zone and bring back my Cinematography talks and reviews–and what not a better way than with Netflix’s current hit, Bird Box.
Now, let me preface this with I am going into this movie blind. I have no clue what it is about except that the majority of this movie Sandra Bullock and the rest of the cast where blind folds–why? I have no ducking clue. But we are about to find out fam. So sit back, relax, grab some popcorn, and let’s see if I die a little inside.

  212. But back to the movie itself
  213. It was good, but I felt like it didn’t quite…make it.

  217. Also I got major “A Quiet Place” vibes
  218. I wonder if they were trying to harp on/ Piggy bank off of that movies success and hype
  219. Wow

  3. Running for Books in 2019 – Reader Voracious Blog

    January 6, 2019 at 11:18 am

    […] Sam and I discovered last month that we both wanted to train for a half marathon in 2019, and the wheels of my brain began to turn. What if we picked a race and did it together? What if I put together a “running club” for book lovers that provided people with tools, a community of support, and accountability? A few of my friends encouraged this idea and here we are… Running for Books! […]

    oh my GOD this was hilarious and I am so glad this was your triumphant return to move / tv reviews because wow, a time was had. I know nothing about this movie other than it’s a book adaptation apparently and Sandra Bullock wears a blindfold. This was a Time.
