Get Out (New Movie)

  • Anyone seen this. Right now it has a 99% rating on Rotten Tomatoes (141 fresh, 1 rotten). Saw it this weekend and it was awesome. First movie to ever turn race into a thriller horror movie. It's about a black guy who is dating a white girl, and they go out into the country to visit her family and weird things happen. It's considered horror, but it's a mix between, horror, thriller and comedy. This is Jordan Peele's (from Key and Peele) debut in terms of directing and writing. Probably one of the best movies I've ever seen, never seen a movie use race in this way.

    If you plan on watching, I'd pass on the trailer. Like most of them, it kind of gives away a lot of the movie. If you want to get an idea, just watch a minute or so of it.

  • If Jordan Peele is behind it I know I'll like it. Loved Key and Peele and actually met Keegan at a friggin Staples in Culver City when I lived there.

    I won't pay to go see it but will be up for it later on.

  • From what I've seen in the ads the guy that plays the girlfriends father does a great job of playing the stereotypical yuppie guy that thinks he's being cool and inclusive but goes too far to prove how accepting he is. "My man!" and "I would have voted for Obama for a third term", are hilariously accurate of so many people.

    I can't stand horror movies but this one looks interesting. I'll wait to see it though.

  • This should send a message to Hollywood. Make a low budget but high quality film like this and you will have the money back. Not all $100M films are a hit!

    Well, it's not horror. It's thriller revenge porn. A group of white people enslave random black people because they're black and the black guy gets revenge.

    That's actually a very accurate synopsis. I enjoyed it, but it's a surprisingly racist film, lol.

  • It's a great movie. Very different and unique.

    I'm not sure what you mean when you say it was "surprisingly racist." The purpose of the film is to show how race can be turned into horror or fear. This isn't your old fashioned movie with the KKK out in the country running around with pillow cases on their head. This is the 21st century style racism. "Oh I would have totally voted for Obama for a third term if I could.....Oh you guys make the best athletes.....Oh I'm a huge Tiger Woods fan, I bet you love him.." Stuff like that. The movie really is eye opening. Depending on your race and background you will probably view the movie different from someone else, but I think a lot of people can relate to this movie.

  • I didn't mean it in any accusatory sense. I've seen plenty of racist horror films before where the racism's directed against people that aren't white.

    I also wasn't referring to the little comments like that (which are also made by many people in real life from people of every possible skin color, in my experience), but rather to the overall theme of the film.
