Finally, a solo Star Wars movie about Solo. It' s a heist movie, a Star Wars movie, a prequel, pauper, a poet...well, maybe not the last 2, but it's good. How good is it? Let's run through the list.
You may be wondering if this is the flick for YOU, though. Here is a list of elements in A Quiet Place that are light on the spoilage to help you decide whether or not to shell out the box office cash, Netflix it, or just completely skip it, so, let's jump into this full geek.

What if I told you, in my best Morpheus impersonation, that those heroes are just fighting themselves. Their outer struggle is often a metaphor for the torments they hold inside, and we relate to these characters because they are often a reflection of the very real, but unseen, onslaughts we’ve had to endure within our own states of mental health.
What's important here, is that it's okay if you hated it, loved it, or didn't care about it all. None of these things make you stupid, a moron, and idiot, or any other vitriolic comment by a poster that we probably shouldn't repeat.
