    I just saw the movie last night. Two thoughts:

    -Don't go if you're battling a cold. It was torture trying not to cough or sniffle during those silent moments. I knew it was a quiet place but I didn't realize how quiet. Luckily only like 5 other people there to be disturbed on a Monday
    -Enjoyed it but felt short, like it was 75% of a movie. Not sure how I'd have lenghthened it -- I definitely like that they cut it where they did instead of showing them actually killing all the monsters. But the run time had to be like 80 min or less it seemed
    -Emily Blunt is amazing at playing that type of role

    The biggest plot hole (probably already mentioned) IMO is that sonic military grade weapons exist and it seems unlikely they wouldn't be used in that type situation. Great movie though, really enjoyed it. John and Emily are both talented and hot.

    Debateable on the first part

    Second part is not debateable though. A close second is John Legend.

    Saw it the other night. Thought it was a good movie, and agree with a lot of points made in this thread. My question is how do they have power? The creatures have been attacking over a year, so it is hard for me to understand how a power plant can continue to operate.

    Since this movie was financially successful I'm sure we can find out in the future from a range of prequels/sequels!

    Rented on Redbox this week because my 8-year-old was begging to see it. He didn't follow the plot very well. His 6-year-old brother was paying better attention and he was only watching it in passing. Eldest didn't catch on about the cochlear implant until the very last scene. Although, he got scared at the old man scene and kinda checked out after that.

    8yo: "Wait....why is the monster hurting?"
    6yo: "Her earring is hurting them! DUH!"

    A movie about superheroes, regardless of how violent they may be, is entirely different than a movie about aliens inhabiting the Earth, killing and devouring everyone in their path. What’s on the schedule for tonight, The Human Centipede?

    Saw it tonight. Thought it was pretty good. As far as the “plot hole” of why they didn’t live by the water, I assume it’s bc there were no prior structures there and they couldn’t build new ones.

    One of the news clippings in the very beginning mentions a meteor striking Mexico, so I assume that’s the explanation

    Jim from the office said they came from another planet via meteors from an exploded planet. The one that hit Mexico started the invasion.

    The fucking pregnancy in the middle of the worst apocalypse possible pissed me off and gave me flashbacks to The Walking Dead. Use the ass, mouth, tits, or armpits or whatever you have to hit for friction, but don't run the risk of procreating against the backdrop of the most savage form of apocalypse possible. If you're that mindnumbingly stupid and irresponsible, then I have no sympathy for you even though it really hurt to see Jim give himself up after telling the deaf girl he always loved her. Also bothered me that he didn't at least take one homerun swing once he screamed even though it would obviously have been futile probably.

    This movie was a Murphy's Law times a billion starting with that fucking nail in the stairwell.

    Uh no, I've never watched a single Transformers movie. Not sure how you extrapolated that I like brutally stupid movies because I despise brutally stupid movie characters (i.e. getting yourself knocked up during an apocalypse manned by creatures that already ate one of your children).

    Idk man maybe give it a couple of years to see if things become a little less "we're all getting eaten by savage alien monsters who go off of sound so bringing crying infants/toddlers into this world might be problematic and actually get the whole fucking family killed quicker" with the passage of time. They waited a whopping 400 days to "repopulate" even though they already had three children and couldn't keep the youngest one alive due to the aforementioned alien killing machines.

    Please explain how getting pregnant with no healthcare available in the predator apocalypse was a "great plan". How exactly do you go about keeping the baby quiet when it's not locked in its coffin crib? How about when the kid hits toddler stage? What's the great plan there, especially since they already had one toddler that they let trail behind the parents and the fucking deaf girl before he got eaten.

    You obviously go into a movie like this utilizing suspension of disbelief with regard to the central plot, but the human behavior in this case was less believable than the alien monster shit.

    They should probably have worried about keeping their remaining progeny alive before making any additional efforts to "repopulate" beyond the two kids, especially considering one is totally fucking deaf.

    Since there was no healthcare available then she probably didn’t have access to condoms or other forms of birth control.

    And what is life without sex with John Krasinski?

    Ipso facto she made the right decision.

    That's why I suggested ass/mouth/tits/armpit action for when you need some good old Halpert friction. Lots of options that don't result in getting pregnant. But hey, they set off a domino effect that led to the dad's premature death, so I'm sure trading the only adult male in the group for a crying baby will work out fine.

    I'm sure this point has been made, but the biggest logical flaw imo is once the alien is in the vicinity, much less the same room as the person how could it not hear that person's panicked heartbeat or breathing?

    I enjoyed it anyway...
