Skyscraper

I like The Rock. He is reliable. You see a movie of his you know what you are going to get.

Skyscraper is harmless. Classic nailbiter. I hate heights so I didn't like parts of it.

Go see it. Wear a disguise. Guilty pleasure.

It's on the list for some weekend in the near future when I have nothing to do and my MoviePass is burning a hole in my pocket.

Almost saw it this weekend but ended up seeing A Quite Place instead, simply by virtue of the fact that Skyscraper had a later start time and I wanted to see a movie right now.

Wish I had waited the extra 20 minutes for Skyscraper, it couldn't have been any WORSE.

Started watching a Quiet Place on Amazon. Quit after a bit. Couldn't figure out why the good old boys didn't bait the fuckers with firecrackers and then pick em off with their ARs. Seems like pretty good sport to me.

Hell, find some high ground, use some bird bombs to get the little bastards localized then nail 'em with tannerite.

Thus


Damn pantywaist snowflakes "ooh, they're aliens we have to communicate " or "ohh there are so few of them we have to protect them".

Dumb fucks, get us all killed.

Your criticisms sound a lot like mine. Though
Spoiler:
They actually DID bait them with fireworks about midway into the movie. Though it was to draw them off, not kill them. Toward the end, they found a different sound that actually incapacitated them, THEN they shot them. I have to wonder how scientists missed that but some dipshit farmer stumbled onto it by accident.

For that matter, why didn't the damned military blast some AC/DC in various areas and airstrike that place or something. Kill the aliens AND blow up a stereo playing AC/DC, a double victory. From some of the old newspapers you saw in the film, they had figured out these things hunt by sound before civilization collapsed completely

Is this a remake of Anna Nicole Smith's breakout role?
