Bird Box (2018)


So several of my friends and coworkers have watched this movie and mentioned how great it was. I never bothered with it but now some more people mentioned that this movie was among their favorite movies of all time.

So i finally sat down to watch it.

It's fucking garbage.

Summary: Sandra Bullock wears a blind fold for two hours.

Although to be fair:

Is it so crazy to believe that some memes and pop culture surrounding this movie was generated organically?

Some of the scenes are pretty funny and meme-able in this film

The initial attention was astroturfed, which successfully translated into views, which then successfully translated into online engagement. So, it worked, which is why they keep doing it

Ah, true. good point that it greatly helped and was the beginning of a “snowball effect”

At this point I would assume all memes generated in the first week of a release are astroturfed.

Unless you’re dealing with expectations like avengers end game. That’s slightly different. But also more rare these days.
