Spike Lee showing yet again that he likes to package the most simplistic and unoriginal messages and storylines in the most convoluted ways possible.
wasn’t able to finish this as an entire row of middle-aged adults behind us wouldn’t shut the fuck up and theater staff did nothing besides give us free theater passes which is basically like saying “sorry you had a shitty experience, come back another time to have a free shitty experience.”
what i watched wasn’t good though.
A Quiet Place is the worst film I've seen since Song to Song. I've seen objectively worse movies (I just ran through all of the Friday The 13th films for crying out loud) but this disappoints far more because of the expectations of it being a good movie. That isn't to say that the hype (I had no hype for it) was bigger than what I got.
This film has no plot. It exists solely to have quiet moments, supposedly…
I really can’t stand Alex Garland’s writing or direction.
He writes characters that have intelligent backgrounds but writes them so incredibly idiotically that they come across as stupid and insipid.
This felt like if Nicolas Winding Refn rewatched Stalker and Arrival on loop and thought his inability to write intelligent women characters would be benefitional for a Paramount block buster.
Don’t get me started on the laughable line delivery throughout.
I think I’m already done with 2018, let’s put all of our efforts into making 2019 a tad bit better.
