Really thought Williams was Amanda Peet for most of the film.

I'm down with that.

Re: Get Out (2017, W/D: Jordan Peele) S: Kaluuya, Williams, Whitford, Keener

I saw it opening weekend at a Sunday matinee, which, for my theater, is usually only about 30% full. When we walked in, still with ten minutes or so until the start time, the theater was about 80% full, and by the time the film started, I'd say the theater was about 90% full.

I knew from the opening credits that it was going to be good. You can usually tell within moments whether the director knows what he or she is doing, and you can tell that Jordan Peele had a vision for the film.

I was expecting a lot of crowd interaction (such as talking back to the screen), but the audience was strangely quiet throughout the whole film. I did notice quite a few folks checking their cell phones throughout the film, but I think that says less about the quality of the film and more about how addicted we as a society are to our social media apps and our cell phones.

I liked the film; I thought that it was exceptionally well-made, and I loved the way that music was used throughout. I thought that the character of Rod was screamingly funny, and it was nice that Peele used that character to provide both tension relief and a bit of levity to the film. His rant about
Spoiler:
Jeffrey Dahmer, oral sex, and sex slaves
is probably the funniest few minutes I've seen in a film in a long time.

My lone gripe about this film is this:

Spoiler:
It's obvious from Rose's exhortations near the end that Walter and Georgina are her grandparents in new bodies. However, if I were a septuagenarian given a new, young body, I wouldn't waste my new looks and new lease on life hanging around doing domestic chores for my family. I'd be out creating a whole new existence.

I guess that's just nitpicking, but that plot element seems rather disingenuous to me. I mentioned it to one of the friends with whom I saw the movie, and he said that, at least in Georgina's case, old women like nothing better than to dote on their kids and grandkids. I still don't buy it, especially since Granddad was such a super-genius and now he spends his days splitting firewood and raking leaves?
But, really, that's my only complaint. I think that it's a very good movie.

rbrown498, my take on that issue is that:

Spoiler:
Grandma and Grandpa only play at being the servant and groundskeeper when there is fresh bait. Once the mind swap is complete, they return to their real lives.

That IS a possibility that I hadn't considered.

Re: Get Out (2017, W/D: Jordan Peele) S: Kaluuya, Williams, Whitford, Keener

This one flew under the radar for me a bit--knew nothing about it going in.

Thought it was excellent. Very suspenseful and I'm anxious to check it out again.

Re: Get Out (2017, W/D: Jordan Peele) S: Kaluuya, Williams, Whitford, Keener

I somehow managed to avoid all spoilers about this movie save for the trailer until I saw it last night.

I really liked it. Very well paced, kept me interested the whole time, just the right about of creep and tension. I LOVED how it ended and am glad the alternate ending was not chosen.

I thought the movie was very well acted, especially from Williams and Kaluuya. Keener was meh and the brother was atrocious.

Looking forward to a repeat viewing. I will definitely see the next one from Peele.

I saw this last night, and I'm still thinking about it. Driving home last night, my wife and I both felt like we were still in the movie's world. That is how effective it was!

Just watched this last night with high expectations. I enjoyed it and thought it was very well done, but it didn't amaze me.

My big gripe was the trailer gave about 90% of the movie. I probably would've been blown away if I had gone into it blind.

I saw it recently. It was interesting, kept my attention, but nothing that had me dwelling on it afterward.

Re: Get Out (2017, W/D: Jordan Peele) S: Kaluuya, Williams, Whitford, Keener

I honestly think the limited amount of humor in this flick was too heavy - I know I can't blame Peele because comedy is his bread and butter but it was just a bit too much
Spoiler:
It also killed the end of the film - made it feel like one of those cheap lame ass horror movies from the early 2000's)


That's actually a minor gripe though - the meat of this film is pretty damn effective and I like how this movie has nothing at do with
Spoiler:
racism
Yes I used tags for that because most who go into this film with think that's ALL it's about - that was a nice touch by Peele - you can tell he loves the horror genre.

Couple of things I didn't understand:

What was the significance of the
Spoiler:
deer they hit in the beginning of the film...was it that he used a deer to kill the Father at the end?


Why did
Spoiler:
Everyone freeze at the same time at the party when they saw him go upstairs - it was creepy and a nice touch for sure but it didn't make any sense to me


I will more than likely buy this one.

Re: Get Out (2017, W/D: Jordan Peele) S: Kaluuya, Williams, Whitford, Keener

Just saw it. I knew how well reviewed it was but actually knew almost nothing about the movie except for the most basic premise of a black man visiting his white girlfriends house.

I thought it was exceptional from the sort of Scream influenced beginning straight through to the excellent end that winds up being a twist on expectation
Spoiler:
and made me wonder if I have a slight racial bias


The dialogue was particularly strong and natural and the movie just created an awesome "feel" to it.

Was it the best movie ever?

No, but I can also not imagine this particular story not having its best representation on the screen.

Now on to Wonder Woman tomorrow. Could be a great couple days of movies.

In terms of the deer
Spoiler:

There were so many little thematic ideas and foreshadowing that the deer played into throughout the movie and I likely missed some.

Among these were:

Spoiler:
The somewhat over racial symbolism of thinning the herd of black people and how their disappearances matter less and are investigated less

The analogy of "deer in the headlights" which flows through to the hypnotism and also the flash of lights snapping the swapped out of their catatonic state

The collection of deer and displays on the mantle corresponding to the "roping" of the captured and its auction as property

The foreshadowing of the horns being used to kill that even a deer can be deadly. Just some I saw.

Spoiler:
The big one I took was about his mother dying in a similar way. He went hours not knowing she was dying in a ditch, gasping for breath. The deer was doing that same thing

Re: Get Out (2017, W/D: Jordan Peele) S: Kaluuya, Williams, Whitford, Keener

Caught this on Friday night and it was awesome. The next morning at breakfast my 14 year old (smart ass) daughter was ringing a spoon around my wife's coffee... trying to hypnotize me.

Regarding the alternate ending... what was it?

I really thought Chris was going to be framed for everything.

Surprised they didn't list any early Dario Argento films in that list.
