These People Ruined ‘A Quiet Place’ for Everyone Else

These People Ruined ‘A Quiet Place’ for Everyone Else
John Krasinski’s thriller “A Quiet Place” made a lot of noise at the box office this weekend. And perhaps that’s apropos, since a lot of people have been complaining about loud moviegoers at their screenings of the film.

While it’s important to not text message, answer calls, talk or loudly eat popcorn and snacks that might annoy people and ruin the experience of a movie — no matter what you’re seeing — it’s especially true of “A Quiet Place.” The film, directed by and starring Krasinski, who co-leads with his wife Emily Blunt, is a horror movie about a family who live in silence, thanks to monsters that hunt whatever they can hear. And since nearly the whole movie is in silence with very little dialogue, literally every pin drop can send hearts racing.

TheWrap even made an etiquette video, urging theatergoers to be quiet during the movie. But it fell on, at least some, deaf ears. Based Twitter reaction, the film got ruined for a whole lot of people.

Gee, thanks.

Last night I saw #AQuietPlace . At one point I choked on popcorn, but did I cough and ruin it for everyone? No I sat there and suffocated in silence for a full minute until something loud happened in the movie. Those moviegoers don’t know how much they owe me. pic.twitter.com/eB4mNfvj0v

How scary is “A Quiet Place”? Well, while we were leaving the theater a food server dropped a metal tray on the ground. Everyone who had just seen the movie spun around and looked at the noise with genuine terror. Hell of a film @johnkrasinski. #AQuietPlace pic.twitter.com/kIoCoyTKtW

Saw A Quiet Place just now.. the woman behind me couldn't keep quiet for more than 2 minutes, it was either talking, reacting or eating individually wrapped sweets! Other than that I loved it! #AQuietPlace #cineworldunlimited

My favorite part about A Quiet Place was the immediate regret I had in choosing a theater with leather seats. #aquietplace

I knocked over my purse halfway through the movie and freaked out because I thought a monster would come get me for making noise.

it’s so good.

Miranda Lambert & Bellamy

Pawlikowski’s ‘Ida’ Wins at London Film Festival

Pawlikowski’s ‘Ida’ Wins at London Film Festival
London – Pawel Pawlikowski’s “Ida” won best film at the 57th BFI London Film Festival at an awards ceremony Saturday in London.

The pic follows a Roman Catholic novice nun in Poland as she tries to find out what happened to her parents during the Nazi occupation.

The award was announced by film critic Philip French, who was prexy of the official competition jury. French said: “The jury greatly admired ‘Ida,’ the first film made in his native Poland by a director who came to prominence while living in Britain. We were deeply moved by a courageous film that handles, with subtlety and insight, a painfully controversial historical situation — the German occupation and the Holocaust — which continues to resonate. Special praise went to his use of immersive visual language to create a lasting emotional impact.”

French’s fellow jurors were Lone Scherfig, director of “An Education,” Canadian-based visual artist Stan Douglas,

Attack the Block Could Get a Sequel, American Remake, or TV Series

Attack the Block Could Get a Sequel, American Remake, or TV Series
Attack the Block has built up a devoted fan base since its theatrical release in late July, with many "Blockheads" already asking for a sequel. Director Joe Cornish revealed there are several ideas in play for a follow-up, one of which comes from star John Boyega. Here's what Joe Cornish had to say about John Boyega's Attack the Block sequel idea.

"[He] keeps coming up with amazing ideas. He has this image of a bigger alien attack on London, as if the attack we saw in Attack the Block was just the [first] wave and there's another wave of bigger creatures. And he described to me this image of Moses leading a whole army of hood kids across the Thames, next to the houses of Parliament. No, his image was even better. He had an image of Moses on a police horse. You know the police in London who have those horses they use in riots.

Review: Blitz

This is the review for Blitz on Pure Movies. The film is directed by Elliott Lester and starring Jason Statham (The Expendables, Snatch, The Transporter), David Morrissey (Centurion, Nowhere Boy), Luke Evans (Tamara Drewe, Robin Hood), Aidan Gillen (The Wire, Twelve Rounds), Paddy Considine (Submarine, The Bourne Ultimatum), Richard Riddell, Chris Wilson, Nicky Henson, Elly Fairman and Taya De La Cruz. Ah, the gritty underbelly of South-East London, where every copper is as mean as Jason Statham, every traditional pub has a man with a dog (or two), and every corner has a loony lurking in its shadows. Nathan Parker’s (Moon) adaptation of Ken Bruen’s novel, Blitz, couldn’t get more clichéd if it was a Guy Ritchie crime caper. Thankfully, there’s no cringeworthy ‘apples and pears’ Mockney slang in this – apart from the odd Statham muttering, and the ‘good’ side of the law looks as much
