‘A Quiet Place’ Is The Best Sci-Fi Movie I’ve Seen In Years

When I saw the trailer for A Quiet Place I immediately knew I wanted to see this movie. I’m not a fan of scary movies in the slightest. I can barely watch leastwise hear The Exorcist and I’ve just recently gotten the guts to watch The Shining all the way through. Scary movies are my allergy but this film felt like something I had to see. I’ve never seen a movie where the premise is that you have to stay completely silent to avoid being found by a mysterious something or else you will perish. I knew this film was going to be scary but the premise sounded too original and cool not to watch. I ended up missing the opportunity to see it in the movie theaters but last night I finally got to see it at home and it was surprisingly better than I expected.

A Quiet Place is about a family who in a post-apocalyptic world where any sound can get them killed are just trying to survive. The movie starts a little slow but soon establishes the seriousness of the situation the family is going through in a legitimately horrifying fashion. The story then showcases the family living a somewhat ordinary life despite their obvious noise-making hindrance but when life hits with a bang things go awry real fast.

What impressed me the most about this film is its realistic situations. This movie could’ve easily turned south real fast by having the family participate in wild escapades that would’ve turned the film into a typical PG-13 action film where the protagonists are supposedly invincible (like Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.) The writers for A Quiet Place, however, kept the suspense up and never let the movie get corny in any way. Let me give you an example. SPOILERS AHEAD!

‘Bumblebee’ Gets Its First Teaser Trailer

Today I saw the teaser for Bumblebee for the first time and I was excited…until the teaser came on. I LOVE the Transformers. I didn’t really know anything about them until I watched Transformers: Age of Extinction and I don’t care what anyone says about the movie. I loved it. So much that I went and watched it three times in the movie theaters. Last year I watched Transformers: The Last Knight and while it was enjoyable the first time around after a while it got boring fast. So with the announcement that there would be a Transformer spin-off film focused on Bumblebee I was totally excited to see what this movie could look like. Well, I’ve seen it and it’s not that great. Here it is.

This trailer really surprised me because it did not appeal to me in the slightest. Bumblebee looks way too cute looking for me which shouldn’t be a bad thing but I like the epic Bumblebee. Not Bumblebb-8. Two, there was nothing epic whatsoever from the look of the film and that’s sad because I love Transformers movie and this looks to be one film in that series I will not want to see. But who knows. Maybe the official trailer will be better.

I will say, the one part of the trailer that I did like was when Bumblebee spit that tape out of him at the end. Now that was funny. 🙂

I hope you enjoyed this trailer more than I did and I thank you for reading. Have a beautiful day.
