Comments

  • This movie was so good, I cried in the end

  • I've been on the street on the opening scene located in New York

  • As an aspiring film maker, this is one of my favorite reoccurring segment on Vanity because it is very insightful to hear in depth the thought process behind the directors

  • Hey where's pam?

  • Dwight's probably so jealous right now

  • Loved the movie!!!!

  • this movie runs through my bloodstream

  • Your name Is Jim

  • Big tuna

  • Wonderful video and fantastic insight. Really a great movie too for anyone who hasn't seen it yet.

  • Really amazing movie man, loved it!

  • just build every thing near that waterfall, it might be annoying but they cant hear you.

  • the details and explaination of the rules is so perfect

  • " A quiet place" was the first movie my husband and I watched at the cinema after we had our daughter. We almost died in the scenes with the baby.

  • Such a crazy good movie, love it!

  • Loved this movie!!!

  • so about the clif hanger at the end of the movie is there a second part by any chance?

  • Everything is so intricate and thought out I completely love it, this movie was so amazing

  • I just watched the movie a few days ago... It was amazing. How every little thing had a place, how nothing was bent for the story and how each scene had a place. I loved it. John Krasinski is everything I strive to be as a story writer.

  • You did a great job love this movie

  • this movie ruined my life in a good way i didnt think i would ever cry at a movie ever but i sobbed for like 3 hours after the movie was over GREAT JOB JOHNNNN

  • Am I the only one who wishes John Krasinski was my father

  • Academy voters, pay attention! #FYC

  • Real husband and wife, real deaf girl, really talented people on and off screen, I mean, wow, really great movie loved it

  • Awesome movie, original story, and topped of with an all star cast who are all brilliant actors. Absolutely loved this film👍 You all should feel very proud of this production. Nailed it.👌

  • If they ever made the last of us live action movie he would be the perfect joel

  • Awesome movie

  • Amazing movie....

  • Beautifully broken down!

  • My issue is how were the monsters able to move through the woods so fast w/o being able to see?

  • Absolutely incredible film.

  • Just watched this last night 👌👌💜💜

  • John was a great actor in the film 🎥

  • Blind people would hate this movie

  • ik shes deaf but she cant feel the monsters stompin around? theyre pretty heavy and fast about it

  • Where are pam and Dwight

  • Bad day at the office

  • Was it Shrute farm

  • the first noise was the toy space shuttle though and we got the consequences of it right there alright

  • Jonh did such an amzing job at this movie. I hope i can be a filmaker like him

  • Omg plz he needs to make more movies

  • I bet the set was made in Dwight’s barn

  • Where’s Dwight

  • Ugh the movie was SO good. It's now one of my favorites. Was amazingly well done.

  • Noah Jupe is so Cute❤️

  • And all Dwight thought you'd do was sell paper...

  • I can’t wait to see the next film he directs

  • Why those kids need a lantern in a pretty bright room with all light bulbs and candles?

  • It’s so interesting that they shot on film

  • Let's be real. We were all completely silent in the theatre because we were scared of making noise.

  • They did a whole movie without talking

  • Good movie.

  • Shout out to these two kids you picked, they are super stars in the rising

  • I really loved this except for the weaknes of the monsters... doesnt seem to make any sense why humanity seems near extinction when all it needed was to find a certain frequency to stop them. Still enjoyed the movie up until the end. Gj jon!

  • Sup Jim

  • This movie was so well written and directed. I absolutely loved it and I loved how emotional the ending was. I rarely cry during movies but I definitely cried during this one.

  • This movie game me nightmares for like 3 days straight.

  • It was an interesting movie, but a few things frustrated me throughout. Why didn't they live nearer the river/running water? No one really tried high frequency to kill or debilitate these things before they took over? What group just leaves the youngest to trail behind when there are killing monsters around....He'd surely be in the middle or holding a parents hand? I feel like I'd sat through that really silent, suspenseful movie, and then was robbed of the ending. Instead it just cut to black...That aside, I thought the actors were great and really believable.

  • No, you are Jim

  • I want him to play Reed Richards in the next mcu fantastic 4 movies.

  • John I love Ur movie called 13 hours it's one of my favorite ones so far☠️☠️🔫😉

  • ‘The Silence’ by Tim Lebbon.

  • u had electricity without a power cut so how was kerosene lamp even required /has any 2000 kid anyone even seen a real one ?

  • John? Pfft more like Jim.

  • I came here for Jim

  • I 💓 this movie and I truly hope to see more directed by Jhon Burke Krasinski. This movie was amazing artistically.

  • This film was fantastic. Really enjoyed it and thought its idea was outstanding, and it was executed well

  • Lol the monsters in this movie look like Kha'Zix xD

  • I remember waiting for the loudest and moments to try and open my candy and drink my drink in the theater 😂😂

  • I just finished the whole series of The Office. This looks like Jim Halper making a sales presentation to me. I bet John Krasinski would probably hate to see this comment because The Office is ancient history to him and he is talking about this latest project that he is doubling as actor and director, but I can't help!

  • Im watching this and *ALL I THOUGHT ABOUT WAS DWIGHT SHRUTE AND MICHAEL SCOTT.*

  • this movie is far superior to Get Out. cant believe that crap got an oscar.

  • Shut up jim

  • I enjoyed this movie. But what I enjoyed more was the film score.

  • I think it’s really cool how he’s a director of a great horror movie, and that himself and his wife were involved in the acting to. It’s also cool how he explained the details in the background and how everything has a story behind it. (the next sentence Has spoilers) Also, having the youngest son die and not being able to morn about it causes great sadness to me. If I could give this movie a rating, I’d give it, with no hesitation, a 5 out of 5. 👏

  • BIG TUNA!!

  • I felt like cryin when he died

  • The only good movie of the deacde.

  • Question which bear is best

  • Wait where’s Dwight lul

  • What about having a baby and it crying when it’s born

  • ... ... ... **YAHTZEE!!** *dies*

  • My mum falls asleep during every movie, it doesn't matter what it is, it could be sci-fi, drama, Rom-com anything even the biggest loudest Michael bay-est film in existence she'll fall asleep in the first 10 minutes. The fact she stayed awake during the whole film and was literally glued to the screen and story despite it almost being a silent movie is testament to how good a story this is!

  • I hate the girl. She messed up the family.

  • Never got why they have absolutely anything in the various shelves in the house. There are kids around, it's inevitable something will get knocked off and make a noise

  • And all shot on Schrute Farms

  • I love John and his process of thinking but I think this movie was more average than I thought it would be

  • All I hear is Jim

  • The reason this film is so good is the same reason the first Jurassic Park movie is so good. It's a drama that just happens to take place in the horror genre.

  • i didn't know Jim had interest in cinematography.

  • But why didn't they just move to live close to the waterfall?

  • I cant wait

  • My mom and sister talked more during the movie than the actors in the movie spoke

  • The office

  • Tuna tuna tuna...

  • this movie made me feel like i was in a library

  • John Krasinski is so handsome :)

  • John is gorgeous

  • the lantern scene is kinda dumb though... they have access to the electricity and still give their kids a lantern instead of a lamp. why would you? the main thing in the movie is that ultrasound can almost kill monsters. why then scientists didn't think of it in a first place?? it would be the first assumption of any doctor or scientist. the whole concept was ruined when I started thinking about it more...
