I liked Baby Driver. "Who doesn't like hats?"

A Quiet Place was good. I appreciate a horror or sci fi that just throws you into it. The opening sequence was really effective. The only thing that bugged me was the ending --

Re: Movies: Talk About What You've Seen Lately--Part 3

a quiet place

Well I'd heard great things from critics and fans a like. So combined with that and not seeing it in theatre I was totally dissapointed. Even kinda mad. It was downright boring and not stressful like a horror film is supposed to be. Krasinki and blunt fooled everybody and made a lot of money off their looks I think.

Disclaimer: I'm very hard to please in regards to horror flicks

Blunt has looks?

I also thought the movie didn't live up to the hype. It was entertaining, but chock-full of major plot holes, not just the ending.

I only remember seeing her in this movie and the one where she's a bad ass training Tom Cruise. Neither were glam roles, I guess she could clean up well, but A Quiet Place certainly isn't built around her looks.

Oh I did see her in Looper also, another gritty role. Not saying she's ugly, but she's not an actress whose beauty movies are built around.

I caught it on TNT one night when I was making dinner. I thought it was fun movie. Wasnt paying attention enough to argue the plot. Emily Blunt was gritty in Sicario too. I think its hot though. Here she is with Craig.

Blunt is smoking hot. But yeah she doesn't play glamour roles which is awesome. She's sexy af in edge of tomorrow.

But regarding a quiet place there's just no reason for me to care about the characters. I feel like yea the gimmick was no dialogue but damn, a couple of flashback scenes for development would have helped.

Blunt is obviously hot. It's not like a young woman can get anywhere in Hollywood unless she's at least a 9.
