Well this is interesting… after over a year of having no movie theater due to the world getting shut down over a stupid and pointless “lockdown”, I finally got to a movie theater earlier today since some movie theaters are actually still around. Yes, many movie theaters have closed down ’cause the pandemic did them in. The Bowtie Cinemas at the Wilton Mall closed down for good so I went to the other one in downtown Saratoga Springs, “Criterion Cinemas” which is still open for now anyways.
I went to the movie theaters today ’cause there were two different choices of horror films I wanted to see… it was either “A Quiet Place II” or “The Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It”. I really wanted to see both of them pretty badly but I had to choose one so I went for a “A Quiet Place II” since I loved the first one.
I thought the second one was way better than the first. These movies are getting better and better and from the looks of things, the ending of “Part II” may have left open for a third one so this is probably gonna end up being a series of films, a new franchise.
I think John Krasinski is doing a great job with these movies. He’s surprisingly a great screenwriter and great director. He’s really good at the horror genre. I’m the biggest horror fan you’ll ever see. Yes, “A Quiet Place – Part II” is more frightening and more thrilling than the first. Cillian Murphy is an awesome actor and he plays a cool character in this one. Regan Abbott is an awesome character too.
I hardly ever jump in horror films when the “jump” scare come but this one did it to me once. I think these creatures in these films are so cool. Can you imagine living that life? Being forced to be quiet all the time so those creatures don’t hear you?
Not only that John Krasinski is a great director and screenwriter, he’s also a helluva an actor too. John isn’t in this one very much but did a great job. John is known as Jim from “The Office” so it may seem pretty strange that he goes from a comic actor to horror. It seems to me that John is definitely a fan of the horror genre himself. When John is done with the Quiet Place series, I hope he moves on to other horror films and he probably will ’cause he so good at it.
Anyhow, about movie theaters coming back… this is how movies are supposed to be seen. On the big screen, not on the small screen but I have a feeling like everyone else that we’re about to see the death of the movie going experience for good. Streaming services and VOD will be the new future of movie releases and you’re already seeing it. Movies were meant to be seen on the big screen to begin with.
I thought “A Quiet Place II” was really good and looking forward to the third one.
