Mac at the Movies: ‘A Quiet Place’
I mentioned on the Moose Morning Show, last week, that I decided to get the Movie Pass. It's a special app that allows you to watch a movie, every day, for a year. Recently, they cut their prices, again. So, I took the step.
I used the app for the first time, and the experience was great. Simple, fast, and no problems.
I saw the new horror/sci-fi flick, 'A Quiet Place,' at Regal Cinema, Augusta.
2 definite thumps up.
I loved the concept. Without giving too much away, there has been invasion by aliens who attack when they hear noises.
The lack of dialogue just builds the intensity, and literally puts you on the edge of your seat.
Emily Blunt is the co-star and wife, on and off screen, of John Krasinski, the director of the film. She had an extended scene that, without using any words or noise, is one of the most intense scenes I have seen in a movie, in a long time. (We'll forget the fact that her eyebows are amazily on point, considering the invasion happened a year-and-a-half ago!)
You'll be scared. You'll be shocked. You will cry.
Very rarely does a trailer live up to the hype, but in this case, the teasers were perfect.
The movie really is fine for all ages too, except for very young kids.
I can see why it was the biggest move this past weekend. My guess is it will hold the top spot for a while.
