REVIEW: A Quiet Place/Bird Box [MILD SPOILERS]

emember when all the asteroid movies came out? Armageddon, Deep Impact, some more crap, then some other world-ending garbage movies featuring volcanoes or drilling to the center of the earth? Then there was The Sixth Sense. Then a bunch of ghost movies came out with twist endings because that was the cool thing to do. A Quiet Place made some splashes earlier in the year and now we have the wave of derivatives.

 

A Quiet Place

John Krasinksi leaves his comedic roots and tries really hard to be an action hero. He’s a family man who just wants to protect his loved ones from monsters. You can’t make a noise or the unseen monsters will get you. They never explain where the monsters came from because it’s a story from the average person’s point of view, not the heroes who save the world.

 

Bird Box

Sandra Bullock leaves her comedic roots and tries really hard to be serious. She’s a reluctant family woman who just wants to protect her new loved ones from monsters. You can’t look at the monster or the unseen monsters will make you get you. They never explain where the monsters came from because it’s a story from the average person’s point of view, not the heroes who save the world.

 

It’s like the producers were like, “Let’s make the same exact movie as A Quiet Place, but disguise it with the glasses, big nose, and mustache. No one will notice. It’s totally different. It’s not the same.” It’s a decent enough watch, though.
