Noah and Daren were both thrilled at the scares and the unique use of sensory effects (or lack thereof) to enhance suspense and make sequences scarier in A Quiet Place. The focus on visuals for storytelling & world-building rather than dialogue helped focus on the need to stay in world and maintain the silence to […]
Noah is a big science fiction fan, Daren is a gamer & huge gaming fan, and of course 80s pop culture, so this should be their perfect movie, right? Daren enjoyed the book, and both were looking forward to this one. [Read more…]
