a quiet place

couldve sworn there was a thread for this... canít seem to find it now with the minimal effort i put into locating it. 

anyway, do not see this.  itís criminally, even malliciously  dumb, to the point where i wished movies didnt exist so this travesty couldnt be unleashed upon humanity.  to quote our dear reynolds woodcock, everyone involved with this movie should be spanked in public, hung, drawn and quartered. 

the worst movie of the year, and i saw tomb raider in theaters.  the thought that i could see something i hate more in the near future makes me want to commit seppukku.  im hard pressed to think of a movie i found more deplorable, ever.  itís like seeing wild wild west when it was released and having the crushing realization as a child that movies could suck.

I didn't hate this movie as much as you. In fact, I enjoyed seeing it in the theater. My audience was very engaged, and it was a good time. Sure it didn't make much sense, but I went in expecting that.

I am really glad you hated it so much though, because your review is amazing. Particularly this:

itís like seeing wild wild west when it was released and having the crushing realization as a child that movies could suck.

 :bravo:

came as no surprise to see michael bay listed as a producer when the credits finally rolled.  it at least provided some sort of an answer as to how something this stupid could exist.   i was reminded of the bit from ben affleck's commentary on armageddon where he talks about asking bay why it was easier to train drillers to be astronauts rather than the other way around, and bay telling him to

shut
the
fuck
up. 



COINCIDENCE?!?!?!

if you haven't seen/heard the clip i'm talking about, here:



it's the best thing affleck's ever done. 

fuck this movie.

Iím with Samsong, this movie is FUCKING DUMB. Yet all this praise... Audience loved it too. Once again I find myself on the outside, scratching my head.

I'm not the biggest on Signs, but this feels like a condensed reboot of that movie to me. I'm really surprised this point did not come up in the same way people would say a movie like Life 2017 (the space movie) was like Alien, etc.
