    A Quiet Place

    ★★★★★

    A Quiet Place has the difficulty of selling these characters and their experiences without words, and by golly does it succeed. You know, I didn’t watch this with subtitles. When I saw it, I didn’t know there were subtitles for the sign language.

    Elijah Wood, mah boi! Elijah Wood is one of my favorite actors because of the sheer variety of projects he takes on. Big budget movies, indie movies, television shows, if he’s involved it’s almost sure to be interesting. This movie certainly was.

    This movie has the type of plot you might find in one of the more subtle Twilight Zone/Night Gallery episodes. I don’t think I have anything bad to say about it. If you hate classical music, then maybe…
