  • Get Out

    If someone wants to discuss this movie and can do so without all the racial commentary and rebukes, feel free to do so. I will delete any and all racially provocative comments, going in either direction.

    the movie is inherently about race in america. i don't know there can be a discussion about the movie without diving into what Jordan Peele is trying to say in his story. the fact that the previous thread went in the direction it did basically validates the movie's thesis

        When the discussion turns personal, it has gone too far.

          Guess I missed all the drama. Saw it last night and loved it.

            Well it was basically the mostly aptly titled thread in DD.

              I don't get the positive reviews for this on rotten tomatoes. I was okay with it but only because it finally seemed to pick up at the end.

              Spoilers *****



              Any normal person would be freaked out by everything going on in that creepy- house. Since I never got the feel it was a town. Course it would've ended early if he would have bolted so I would have had him do his own investigation. Also- why wasn't there a reaction from the parents when they first saw him. Should've have been a close up on them since that was pretty much the premise of the movie.

                Reaction from the parents that he was black? What were they supposed to do? Start screaming and have their mouths dropped to the ground like a cartoon character?

                  the parents didn't react because Chris was probably the hundredth or so guy that the daughter had brought home with her to be part of the scheme. the whole point of their routine was to make the victim feel accepted

                    but we don't know that. Their reaction- approval, joy, disappointment, is a plot point. They could of even sized him up since everything after that point was over-the-top strange.

                    I would've liked a subtle look at each other with approval.

                      that would totally undercut the tension and suspense of the entire second act if the audience knew this was all a set-up from the start

                        Re: Get Out

                        I read the synopsis for this movie. Like a lot of fairly low budget horror/thriller movies it suffers from an acute case of "stupid-people-itus".

                        "Something big, growly and toothy is chomping, chewing and spitting us out, one by one, in this dark, scary, haunted mansion. And now Billy-Bob is missing -- let's all separate and see if we can find him."

                        But this one is doing pretty good at the box office -- so it must have more going for it than what I read in the synopsis.
                        "I just couldn't live in a world without me."

                          In the film he is warned by his best friend that it's a bad idea. By the time that the situation seems serious enough to flee it has been made very difficult to escape.

                            I did laugh at the fact that, despite grandma and grandpa getting their new healthy bodies, they were relegated to housekeeper and groundskeeper... heh

                              The part where the groundskeeper was running full speed at the main character 3am in pitch dark and then turns off and runs another direction just before crashing into him was funny as hell for some reason.
