    A Quiet Place

    ★★★★

    Similar to how Jordan Peele (usually known for his comedic roles) surprised us last year with an awesome mystery thriller Get Out, John Krasinski (commonly known as Jim from The Office) surprises us this year with his thriller monster movie.

The immense amount of hate this movie got was mostly from extreme religious people or atheists from what I have seen. Regardless,…
