Film critic Chuck Koplinski joins the Morning Show and in this week’s Friday Flicks he is reviewing A Quiete Place & Thoroughbreds.
A Quiet Place (Starts Friday) A family is forced to live in silence while hiding from creatures that hunt by sound. While effectively atmospheric and containing strong performances from John Krasinski and Emily Blount, the film’s script ultimately frays and comes apart with far too many odd circumstances and questionable actions occurring to simply brush aside. 2 ½ Stars (Chuck Koplinski) Rated R. 90 minutes. AMC-C, AMC-D, SAV.
Thoroughbreds (Starts Friday) Two upper-class teenage girls in suburban Connecticut rekindle their unlikely friendship after years of growing apart. Together, they hatch a plan to solve both of their problems-no matter what the cost.
This dark, accurate portrayal of today’s isolated youth tells this story of the unfortunate meeting of two socio-paths will little humor and is all the better for it. Crisply told and sharply acted, this will not be for all tastes, yet has its rewards for those who like their social commentary on the bitter side. 3 ½ Stars (Chuck Koplinski) Rated R. 92 minutes. ART.
