A Quiet Place (3/3 Hats)


Kelvin Says Hats Off:

Just saw “A Quiet Place” – Near Deaf Experience. Conclusion: 7/10. What seems like a fun and unique concept pretty much plays out as a fun and unique concept. Horror movies, like any genre, carry with them their usual tropes but “A Quiet Place” does not have that typical horror feel to it. That isn’t to say the movie isn’t scary, it is pretty intense, but there is a hopeful, pro-human-spirit outlook underpinning the movie. That said, the fear and suspense can be rather thrilling. With sound being the trigger for the enemy, and thus the enemy itself, each scene and movement and action feels tense. There are a few jump scares, only two or three that I would say are cheap, but the movie does not lean into those for its scares. Conceptually, the movie does a very good job with its horror mechanism. From a character standpoint, I think the movie is less successful. I didnt find myself caring about some of the characters as much as the movie wanted me to. Emily Blunt, however, was a total standout. Her nonverbal emoting was completely gripping, and the dread felt palpable. She was the perfect cast for this movie and it is a performance that I hope is not forgotten later on in the film season. For his part, John Krasinski plays his fatherly role with a soft but deft touch. Also directing the movie, Krasinski was able to avoid making any glaring mistakes, and overall, he delivered on a solid and original concept. #CanYouHearMeNow #TheSilenceIsDeathening #AllQuietOnTheMidwesternFront #LittleRocketMan #RadioViolence #HidingShotgun

‘A Quiet Place’: Do You Fear What I Fear? (8/10)

John Krasinski’s work here as director, writer, and lead actor does not disappoint. This thriller does a lot of things right and mostly avoids the things I don’t like about scary/monster movies. While there are some cheap jump scares, the suspense and uneasiness of the film are very effective but not over-the-top or too scary. Krasinski and his wife Emily Blunt are both really great as usual. The concept is an interesting one, and the movie doesn’t waste time with needless exposition. The score is also pretty great throughout the movie. #quietontheset #silentbutdeadly #noisewillbenoise #notallowed #silentnight #unsafeandsound

When I saw this trailer I was instantly intrigued, but also terrified. I don’t really like “horror” movies but really wanted to see what Jim from the Office had cooked up. Boy was I glad we went to see this movie. It’s more of a suspense thriller than a horror movie. There are very few “scary” moments and more “wow thats freaky” ones. Krasiniski and Emily Blunt where excellent, as were the kids. My favorite part about this movie is it’s lack of “bloat”. Too many times you see movies take way to long to get started and then tack on 10 minutes of unnecessary buttoning up at the end. Not here. They give you just what you need to get started and end it with an “oh wow” moment. There are a few classic horror movie mistakes that make you roll your eyes a bit, but those are very few. Overall though it’s very well done! Highly recommend, especially in theaters.
