    I saw A Quiet Place...it was alright. Not sure why all the hype though.

    It's been a long time since we've had a really quiet movie. And the last one had a tiger on a boat.

    I guess but still listening to critics you would think this is Citizen Kane or something. It was enjoyable but still had some ridiculous plot points and a mediocre ending.

    The leads are both lousy actors but the concept and the bugs were interesting enough that it didn't matter; and the one girl's performance was excellent.

    Dr. Mrs. & I were wondering how you could get a script that was seemingly randomly both very smart and very stupid, and the explanation is the actors took an original script being peddled by a writer team and then doctored it and dumbed it down, for the audience perhaps, but really for them. I'm sure they kept the demographic that way, but they could have made some really interesting choices.

    Spoilers:

    Like aborting the baby. Four lives put in danger by one screaming meemy. F-ck it.

    This got even more ridiculous later with the Moses in the Bullrushes scenes.

    The chick's brain just gets switched off midway through. It's like she's a functional human until she gets preggers enough and then she becomes a Vehicle for a Plot Device. Maybe this was a sophisticated remark upon the status of women in Dumpy 'Merica? (Looks at cast.) Or not. No, it was just lazy.

    They almost got all the way through with no bang bang blam blam stupidity, then pussed out at the end. The "lock and load" stinger was a real betrayal of the whole premise: no traditional weapons work. Presumably the idea is the feedback interferes with their force field, but it would be simpler and more interesting if the feedback had simply killed them itself. Then no need for the ordinary slack jawed GUNZ, HURR DURR!!!! So more dumbness.

    With all that it was still a solid B, which is way more than you have any right to expect from a contemporary movie that focuses on a family. It could have been even worse dreck. I'm looking forward to the writers' chance at creative control in their next film, which is already in casting, called Haunt.

    And for f-cks sake, b-tch, hammer down that nail!

    Blount was a C-, Krasinski was his usual F. He's been awful ever since Jim.

    The last really good quiet movie I saw was "Hush" (2016) about a deaf/mute writer living in the woods. Suspense/horror. VERY well done.
    According to imdb: Contains less than 15 minutes of dialogue, meaning that more than 70 minutes occur without a single word spoken.

    They had done that. The room had been as soundproofed as it could be and they had arranged to have the baby sleep in a box with an oxygen mask. It might have worked if not for the flood and the inquisitive monster.

    Agreed. Although by the time I watch this movie, I'll have forgotten this detail. Doesn't change the fact that NO EFFING SPOILERS, YOU JERKFACE.

    Re: Who is in your Deadpool for Solo: Infinity War

    It isnt really a spoiler...trust me the overall plot is pretty predictable you can guess the story beats 20 minutes in advance.

    As for the rest:

    It isnt having to soundproof that is the issue, it is the fact that having the baby itself is guaranteed to create a lot of noise. I get it, they are sad because their kid got killed so they felt the need to endanger the rest of their kids by having another but still...the chances she doesnt get killed when going into labor are pretty small. They dropped a lamp in a basement and that was enough to cause all sorts of crap imagine a woman with no drugs or doctors giving birth in a complete unsterile and silent area. The amount of noise she would make and how easy it would be for the monsters to hear it would be off the charts. The parents were morons and Daddy deserved his stupid fate.

    Honestly the kids are the best part of the story...

    It really isn't a spoiler. Part of it is in both main trailers.

    Yet she gave birth and didn't make a sound, even with a creature right there. Mothers can do amazing things when it comes to the protection of their cubs.

    No she didnt. She screamed it just got muffled by the fireworks that just so happened to go off right then. (you even hear it for a second before they cut away) You hear her that is why it is supposed to be sad when Daddy walks in and sees the blood in the tub.

    I'll have to watch it again (at home, no way I'm sitting through that again in a theater) because I missed part of that. As for the coincidences and characters making dumb decisions, we wouldn't have a movie industry without them.

    In my original review I had given this a good grade but the more I've thought about it the less I like it. It would still be fresh on the Tomatometer but only barely.

    Yeah the criticisms I make make it sound way more harsh than I mean to. It gets a B in my mind. Worth seeing in the theaters but nothing revolutionary. I think Krasinski did a good job directing but the script needed lots of work. The choice to be silent made the movie both slow (too slow at times) but also the few times you hear a sound it does totally jolt you which is a very cool effect.
