The Silence (2019)
I mean, I like Stanley Tucci and all, but he’s no John Krasinski. Need I say more? OK then, be that way. The Silence is a poor man’s A Quiet Place… how’s that? Come to think of it, that might be too much of an insult to poor people, because we’re talking about a movie here, that aspires to be mediocre. You simply cannot watch this movie without thinking “Why am, I not watching The Quiet Place instead? in addition to “This brand of rehashed horror movie makes me glad I don’t have kids, because they’re always the ones fucking things up!” (that The Quiet Place had me thinking as well.) The worst of it is that you have nobody to blame but yourself, because even as you’re pressing ‘play’ for this loser, you’re invariably questioning your thought process and life choices.
