A Quiet Place

Really slow burn at first, but once you get the drift, it rocks. Emily Blunt is awesome as usual, but the real revelation is John Krasinski. His 'The Office' character could have typecast him but he blows the doors off with this. Directed it too.

Go in totally blind and give it at least 15 minutes before bailing - slow burn.

95% on RT for what it's worth.

Great film. Nothing too groundbreaking but some excellent suspenseful scenes throughout and Krasinski is awesome. Can’t wait to see what he does next

Probably might go down as one of the greats over time.

It's all about that Hereditary though.

Still haven't seen A Quiet Place. Not really sure I will unless it goes on Netflix. I hate going to theaters 99% of the time.

I forgot to mention I saw Solo: A Star Wars Story a week ago. Not a terribly bad film if you ask me. I thought the effects were great, the acting was not as bad as expected. I actually thought the kid that played Solo was pretty great. The opening speeder drifting scene was beautifully choreographed. Howard's direction was and still is class.

I'll admit the 1st act was as good as it gets but it starts to slump in the third. All In All pleasantly surprised.

I've seen the movie twice now and both times I've loved it. I had expectations going into it and those were certainly met. I love the actor that plays Solo. You definitely feel like it is a young Han. Plus the whole Han and Chewie thing in this movie is amazing.

Spoiler for brief thoughts:

it was dope, though pretty heavy handed on the trump references. topher as david duke was really great, as were all the pam grier references.



good movie, some cool cinematic ****, hard hitting "ending"

7/10 ily spike lee

Been binging on loads of films I've never had my hands on lately. Quick rundown:

Crusing: Made in 1980, William Friedkin's perusal of New York's S&M scene in the early 80's brings out a biting performance from Al Pacino, and some of the most graphic scenes of gay sex and leather bondage ever put to celluloid. Highly recommended to see how films like Se7en and other serial killer films took notes from this one.

Borg Vs. Mcenroe: Made this year, Borg Vs. Mcenroe tells the real life true events of probably the greatest rivalry between two of Tennis' greatest players. Luckily for me I didn't know the outcome of the final match between them two, so the actual scene they filmed of these titans sparring was incredibly tense and pulse pounding. Shia Labeouf probably gives his best performance.

Isle Of Dogs: Also made this year, I'd seen this one when it came out a few months ago but re-watching it brought out a new life to me. I'd noticed things I didn't see the first time, definitely one of those movies you need to watch a couple times. Story is great, as is always with Wes Anderson. Animation is probably some of the best ever laid to screen, and the writing is superb, another thing you might not be surprised about.\

Recommend all these flicks.
