Here is my review for “A Quiet Place“. Okay so this family (white) has survived and alien invasion/apocalypse. They have survived because the aliens are blind as fuck, but they can hear shit from 2 cities away. So you have got to shut the fuck up! Any noise will make them come and eat you in seconds. The family lives in the woods on a giant farm.. They have a daughter who is hearing impaired and a son who is giving a scared face constantly. The mother is also pregnant. Listen I get it, humans have sex and want to have babies or whatever, but if there is an alien apocalypse where you can’t make a noise then DO NOT GET PREGNANT aka don’t have sex aka don’t have a baby. In fact if there is any apocalypse where something is coming to kill you don’t have a baby. It cries and shit etc. So ya know, think about it for like 2 seconds. This family did not. It’s more important to love or bang or keep having babies for the future or some dumb shit. Okay meanwhile the aliens are running around and are hungry and the family is caught up in a fight for their life to stay quiet or be eaten! Kids being quiet. These days. haha I would have LOL’d and died.
Okay this movie was scary and tense for sure. You will be stressed out watching it. You will also be quiet watching it because it can be so silent at times. Then some shit will pop off and scare the fuck out of you! Everyone was great in it especially the kids. I love that the little girl (Millicent Simmonds) and she is really hearing impaired and they use sign language a lot. Which I loved. The little boy (Noah Jupe) sells the shit out of it. He really looks horrified. He was in the movie “Wonder” too, and was so believable in that movie. He is a future star for sure. John Krasinski was good in it too and he also directed this movie and he did a good job with the scares and characters. I just wish they would not have kept doing dumb shit the entire movie to justify making noise. You roll your eyes a lot when shit happens because you are like “Okay they dumb”. It’s a thing in a lot of horror movies or the joke is that here are some dumb white folks doing stupid shit again. You don’t have to make characters do stupid shit to justify your plot or scares in a horror movie. If you can get over this then you will love the movie. I did like it a lot and it was fun and interesting for sure. I love an alien apocalypse too. The score is amazing! It’s Marco Beltrami and he has being doing horror movie scores for years and they are the best! I loved it. You should check out this movie for some alien scares and characters that look scared as fuck. PS the aliens looked like The Lickers from “Resident Evil”. I am not sure if they did that on purpose or not.
A. Emily Blunt (My Little Pony: The Movie) was cute in this. I honestly can’t remember her face ever. I don’t know why. I hear her name and I am like what has she been and what does she look like. Then I see her and I am like I don’t remember her at all. I could be writing this right next to her right now and not know it was her. She is the new Mary Poppins so maybe when that comes out I will remember her. Mary Poppins Returns
B. John Krasinski I do know his face but I just realized I have never seen him in anything but The Muppets 2011. I have never seen The Office but I am aware he was in it. He gave it to you mute style, and he also directed this film and co-wrote it.
E. I would have died the first hour in this movie. Shutting up is hard to do or at least I would have made a sound proof room or live in a music studio where it’s sound proof. If you are thinking well I don’t know how to do that etc. I just did a google search. So many ways.
F. Marco Beltrami composed the score and he is awesome! Take a listen.
G. Buffy the Vampire Slayer had an episode call “Hush” and there was no sound in it. It reminded me of that episode. There is even a part where Buffy screams out loud because of the quiet at the end etc. It’s one of Buffy’s most talked about episodes. Also there was an episode of Switched at Birth where it was from the perspective of a character that is hearing impaired. So no sound either.
1:47 into this
H. The scariest part was waiting to hear if someone was going to fart in the audience. It was that quiet.
I. Here is a poster that I added to, to make it better. That’s a LICKER from Resident Evil too. Tell me they aren’t the same monster.
