It’s Been a Minute

Movies That Make Us Episode 32

A Quiet Place was released in 2018. It follows the story of a family in a dystopian future where people are being hunted by monsters that are alerted to any sound. How do you survive in a world where you can’t make sounds? How do you deal with even happy events like the birth of a child? How do you protect your kids, especially one who can’t hear the sounds they make? This is an edge of your seat thriller that hangs on to you from start to finish.

Join Jake, Tracy, and Val as they discuss this thriller, perfect for your Halloween time viewing. This is the first of our month-long look at scary or at least scaryish movies, just in time for Halloween and October. Our hosts break down the story of this film, directing yourself and your wife in a film, hiring actors with disabilities to represent disabilities on screen.

Our team is back at the Watchtower, and back to just our three hosts, after a minute where we had multiple guests. It’s good to be back together, just the three of us. We loved this film and we loved how intense it was, and how sound played such a crucial role. This is a great start to October. (Ok, we know it’s technically still September, but by one day man. One day!)

What did you think of A Quiet Place? We would like to know. Send us that feedback, or any feedback for any episode or movie suggestions to We really want to know. Next week we will be talking Ghostbusters as our October series moves along.
