‘A Quiet Place’ Bullet Point Review

Using bullet points, I’m going to give you my thoughts on what might QUIETly (hehehe) go down as the best horror movie of the year…‘A Quiet Place’!

 

  • The opening of the movie was dark but necessary to show how costly a dumb mistake in this world can be
  • Oh, that’s different, a blind alien that is attracted to sound
    • The alien looks like Venom
    • One of the best alien monsters I’ve seen in a movie in awhile
  • Why would Lee (John Krasinski) and Evelyn (Emily Blunt) allow themselves to get pregnant in the current climate they live in
    • They know babies are super loud. They had enough trouble staying quiet with the kids they currently had
  • Those Abbott kids really were the reason that some of their family members died during the movie
    • They were really acting like typical dumb, thoughtless kids at pivotal times
  • Great acting by the cast, especially Blunt
    • Evelyn was just going through so much that I felt like she captured the right emotion of terror plus extreme pain from different directions all while trying to be very quiet
  • Kudos to Krasinski for doing a great all-around job on this movie
    • He directed, co-wrote, produced and starred in this great feature
  • The contained plot made for great intensity and a fun viewing experience
  • To Sum it Up: A great horror thriller and it was so close to being a silent film. I didn’t think that would mix

RATING: Must Own

 

P.S. I have returned to my rating scale that I used to use but with a slight update. There are four different levels. Below is each level in order from best to worse and what each one means.

Must Own = A movie that is so good that I must add it to my Blu-ray collection when it comes out.

Would Accept as a Gift = I enjoyed the movie but don’t necessarily have to buy it (especially if I don’t have the funds to) myself but I would take it if someone bought it for me.

Might Stream = A movie that if I have the urge to watch again then I’ll just stream it from somewhere

Never See Again = Very simple. I don’t want to ever see this movie again.
