Show Notes

We survived The 5th Wave–but did we like it? This week, Bookmarked takes a look at The 5th Wave movie.


Wavers have been counting down to the release of The 5th Wave Movie, the film based on the novel of the same name by Rick Yancey! It’s no secret that we love The 5th Wave and so we were extra excited to see the movie hit theaters! But did we like the movie? That’s the question we ask (among many others) in this episode of Bookmarked!

What you’ll find in this episode:

  • It’s a smaller panel this time!
  • Addie–as someone who has never read the books–joins the show to give us her take on the movie.
  • Chloe Grace Moretz is amazing.
  • So is Zackary Arthur.
  • How was the casting? Did the actors bring the characters to life?
  • That first half-hour was its own wave of feels.
  • Did they make the plot twists too obvious?
  • Did Dumbo make a cross-country trip before joining Squad 53?
  • Old people love The 5th Wave.
  • Will there be an Infinite Sea movie?
  • We suddenly talk Red Queen at the very end. #Random
