The holidays are quickly approaching and we here at Quiet Earth want to take a moment to thank you for continuing to read our little site and helping make it as awesome as it is. We promise 2015 will be even better! And since we're at it, if you're interested in making 2015 awesome with us, you may want to consider joining the team!
We're going to be taking a bit of a break over the holidays to recharge the batteries, watch some movies and get ourselves ready for the new year. What this means is that things are going to be pretty sparse around here and though you might see a post here and there, we won't be back into the regular swing of things until the new year.
But don't worry, we're leaving you with lots to see. Just [Continued ...] »
Quiet Earth's 22 Must-See Movies from 2014!
23 December 2014 11:19 AM, PST
We polled our contributors to find out what their favorite films of 2014 were and the results are in!
Looking at the films we saw in 2014, I think it's safe to say it was a pretty stellar year for good movies. From big, smart blockbusters like Planet of the Apes and Interstellar, to mind-bending indies like Coherence and The One I Love, there's a ton to catch up on.
My advice? Bookmark this page and catch up to every film on it. Also, if we're missing a person favourite, let us know in the comments. I'm sure there's a ton of great movies we've forgot to include.
See you in 2015, everyone!

It's a holiday video message laced with a montage of the most wonderfully insane clips you can imagine. Other dimensions, Angus Scrimm, giant spheres destroying entire cities... you know, usual thing we've come to expect from Phantasm.
Don, if you're listening. We want one of them shirts!

As reported a few weeks back, J.J. Abrams, HBO and Jonathan (among others - see below) have teamed up to produce an adaptation of the Micheal Crichton story for television.

Exterminators Of The Year 3000 Hits Blu-ray in 2015
22 December 2014 10:11 AM, PST
In the wake of the success of films like The Road Warrior, the eighties saw countless desert-set post-apocalyptic knock-offs of varying degrees of quality (many of them covered here of the years). Exterminators Of The Year 3000 is likely a guilty pleasure of most Qe readers, so we thought we share the news that Scream Factory are releasing a Blu-ray of Giuliano Carnimeo's 1983 italian adventure film.
The blu-ray, which sees release March 3 of next year is available for pre-order now.
In a post-apocalyptic future where the earth is a desert and water is the most precious subst [Continued ...] »
