A Quiet Place


Recommended Posts

I'll be honest, I wasn't really into this for a good third of the movie. But when it picks up and gets running its really exciting.

 

Somebody had to be a symbiote fan when they were making those creature designs

 

I hear sequel talk, but I really don't know what they can do differently here. A prequel in the other hand would be alot of fun.

Yeah, sequel would be meh. Showing what led up to that would be great.

 

And sure it wasn't perfect, but a damn good horror flick in a world of Truth or Dares and Happy Death Days. You literally don't breathe for certain parts.

 

Stuff that bothered me:

Electricity a year into the apocalypse? Nah. Also, how irresponsible can you be having a kid in this new world?

 

Two minor gripes, but overall I really loved it. The acting was amazing. Characterization was great. The world building was cool.

 

Having exposition through newspaper headlines and magazine covers was cool too. A little hokey, but smart not having to focus too much on backstory and letting the actors do their thing.

Loved this film. It's not perfect, but it has everything I want in a good suspense film. Some friends I saw it with hated the ending, but I dug it. Home run for Krasinski. I hope he directs a sequel with a bigger budget...

 

I wanna see who was lighting those other fires. Also, what are the cities like? I could also be up for a prequel--the first 50 days or something like that.

Oh Panch I didnt get a chance to ask... That million dollar pile of snacks? Did y'all even get to eat that? I went in the middle of the day, so only like people were in my theater. I ordered food and could only eat it during scenes where music was playing or it just happened to get loud.... Which wasn't often! I forget how you can hear everything in movie theaters when it gets that quiet.

Something you may not know about me: I have this neurotic fear of getting to anything/where late. I will get to a place up to MORE THAN A HOUR (ask Nick) just to not be late. In the case of the Quiet Place viewing, we were there a half hour early (plus 30 mins of previews) and had plenty of time to eat snacks before the film.

 

BONUS: I also refuse to eat while watching a movie. Sure, sometimes I'll have some popcorn and take sips from a drink (I'm terrified to drink too much in a theater because I WILL NOT GET UP TO PEE UNTIL AFTER THE FILM), but if it's a Marvel movie or something where I have to pay very close attention? Forget it. Crunching on food or reaching over to grab a drink, I might miss some Easter egg or something.
