A Quiet Place

If they hear you, they hunt you.

PG-13. Drama/Thriller. Directed by John Krasinski. 1h 35m.

What the Internet Says

‘A Quiet Place’ is a genuinely effective, brilliantly executed piece of horror, a truly terrifying movie that earns its screams by essentially turning off the sound.” ­– Deadline

“What makes A Quiet Place such a terrifying entry in the genre is that you need to know when to cover your ears. The jolts are unpredictable and, err, disquieting. You’re an active participant in the film, and there’s no escape until the credits roll.” ­– US Weekly

Our Take: This movie will seriously send chills up your spine. With minimal sound and chilling suspense, you are sure to be at the edge of your seat the entire time!

Chappaquiddick

On July 18, 1969, Sen. Ted Kennedy drives his car off of a bridge on Massachusetts' Chappaquiddick Island. The accident results in the death of passenger Mary Jo Kopechne, a 28-year-old campaign strategist who worked for Kennedy. The ongoing investigation into the mysterious and scandalous events forever alters his political legacy -- and ultimately changes the course of presidential history. Starring Kate Mara, Jason Clarke, and Ed Helms.

PG-13. Thriller. Directed by John Curran. 1h 14m.

What the Internet Says

“‘Chappaquiddick’ provides just enough detail to allow us to draw our own conclusions, yet no viewer will think of Ted in quite the same way. For a true-crime film about a well-documented incident, ‘Chappaquiddick’s’ ability to preserve ambiguity is remarkable in itself.” ­– The Washington Post

Our Take: This one is definitely intense, and not just cinematically speaking; the intensity expands heavily into the political field as well. Sounds like this thriller will also really make you think…

You Were Never Really Here

A contract killer uncovers a conspiracy while trying to save a kidnapped teen from a life of prostitution. Starring Joaquin Phoenix, Ekaterina Samsonov, and Alex Manette.

R. Drama/Mystery. Directed by Lynne Ramsay. 1h 35m.

What the Internet Says

Cinematically, it’s undeniably gripping, a tightly wound contraption of nervous energy, grief, and gore.” ­– Vulture

The gravity and force of Mr. Phoenix’s performance and Ms. Ramsay’s direction are impressive…” – NY Times

Our Take: Sounds intensely suspenseful. We wouldn’t mind going to see this one this weekend.

Blockers

Julie, Kayla and Sam are three high school seniors who make a pact to lose their virginity on prom night. Lisa (Leslie Mann), Mitchell (John Cena) and Hunter (Ike Barinholtz) are three overprotective parents who flip out when they find out about their daughters' plans. They soon join forces for a wild and chaotic quest to stop the girls from sealing the deal -- no matter what the cost.

R. Comedy. Directed by Kay Cannon. 1h 42m.

What the Internet Says

Aside from its value in a social sense, it’s just a very funny movie, filled with vividly-sketched characters (and strong comic turns) in a charming story that never wears out its welcome or betrays its essentially good heart.” - Forbes

Our Take: A comedy with a message. We think it’s safe to say to expect some good laughs, and some good social food for thought as well...
