Get Out

Chris and his girlfriend Rose go upstate to visit her parents for the weekend. At first, Chris reads the family's overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter's interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he never could have imagined.

    Interesting film but seriously overrated
    I was looking for a good horror film and found this film with many good reviews and recommendations online.

    First half of the movie i was frankly bored as it was way more dull drama then actual horror...

    then came some interesting creepy moments which were enjoyable and well made but to be honest this is absolutely not a horror film, not one scary moment in it...

    And the ending was just weird and action like movie, Chris suddenly kills everyone with zero effort and we happy a happy ending with no gore whats so ever

    It's an interesting movie with a good point of view but deffiantly not one of the best horror movies out there since i won't even define it as a horror movie

    anyways i do recommend to watch it but it's way way wayyyyy over rated.

    Movie #11
    Get Out (Original)/Corra! (PT-BR) (2017) Film #11

    Continuing my journey of watching films and making amateur criticisms about them.

    This is the eleventh film I have watched on this profile and I had already watched it other times.

    I believe it is the simplest and most ingenious story in recent years.

    Great social criticism, wonderful performances.

    Surprising ending that cannot be predicted.

    Previous Film: Pokémon: The First Movie - Mewtwo Strikes Back (USA)/Pokémon: O Filme - Mewtwo Contra-Ataca (PT-BR) (1998)

    Next Film: The Conjuring 2 (Original)/Invocação do Mal 2 (PT-BR) (2016)

    Film Watched on March 26, 2024.

    Rating: 10/10.

    Painful, Gripping, Scary & Fun
    Get Out is the best film that's ever used the subject of racial divide - and to great extent. As you watch, you become immersed in the main characters plight to weave through offensive slurs and prevail from awkward situations, but if it's not the gruelling nature of his journey that grips you, it's the moment the film flips on its head and the end becomes the begining. Too often movies have a predictable nature about them, but Get Out gets you in the present moment as each second ticks by. So ingeniously implemented are each of the directors turns that you, the viewer, feel like both the first and last to experience each moment. I don't know if this film was produced for 3D, but never before have I watched a two-dimensional showing on a 50 inch screen, and felt so nervous as I anticipated each passing moment right there inside each gritty scene.

    "Black is in fashion!"
    A rather curious movie hybrid with the ideas, themes, allusions, and references to films such as Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, Meet the Parents, The Stepford Wives and Being John Malkovich. It is billed as a horror film, but it can be described as a very dark comedy with elements of fantasy, horror, and satire which focuses on racial relations in the modern United States.

    I was impressed with the directorial debut by Jordan Peele. He skillfully created a restless, even creepy atmosphere during the scenes where nothing terrible happens. On the contrary, everyone is nice and smiling at the main character Chris, a handsome black guy, surrounding him with attention and seemingly taking him in as a potential member of the wealthy and liberal upper-middle class white family. They live in a beautifully manicured country estate and warmly welcome a New Yorker boyfriend of their daughter who brought him over for a weekend to meet her parents and brother. Everything seems fine, but there is clearly a strange tension, discomfort, awkwardness, possibly related to the gazes of the couple of black servants, the gardener and the cook. They obviously can't take their eyes off Chris and behave with either charmingly old-fashioned, or, perhaps, a little frightening politeness.

    Such a cliche movie about racism
    The movie starts relatively well. Young interracial couple going to the white girl parents.

    Of course, one would still expect some reticence from the apparently open minded parents .

    However, as the parents invite white only guests to a "party", this is where it gets over the top with cliches after cliches of racism and white supremacism.

    I honestly don't understand why this movie gets such good reviews.

    The movie doesn't bring anything new or original.

    In fact, towards the end it gets absolutely unbelievable and totally unrealistic.

    I understand that it's a horror movie and things are expected to be gory.... However one would expect some "realistic" developments.

    A Perfect Story Perfectly Paced and Perfectly Told
    Unless you count The Silence of the Lambs as a horror movie, this is my favorite horror movie.

    The first time you watch this movie, you have no idea what's going on. You know something's off, but you have no idea what it could be. This keepers the viewers attention as they wonder what everything could mean and how it's all connected. The second time you watch this movie, you know how the movie ends and plays out. So when you rewatch it, you understand all of the weird things you saw the first time, not knowing the meaning of them the first tims. Making the second watch just as if not more enjoyable than the first watch. The film also brings the viewer realization that racism is still an issue in the modern world and that it should be addressed and dealt with. Every actor in this movie nails their performance perfectly. And even though this film is 1 hour and 44 minutes long, it feels perfectly paced. The movie never seems to drag on, having the viewers attention at all times. Not to mention the score of the movie. The score brings the viewer uneasiness as it plays whenever something weird is going on. Even though the viewer has no idea of what's going on, they know that something about it is off, and the music makes it even more uneasy and scary to watch. All in all, this is a perfect horror film. Every aspect is perfect from the acting to the story to the directing to the score, this movie nails everything perfectly. 10/10.

    Missy Armitage (Catherine Keener) and Rose Armitage (Allison Williams)
    Favorite scene with

    Missy Armitage (Catherine Keener) - The First time she Hypnotizes Chris. She shows him a bit of her Mama Bear Claws due to his Smoking around her Daughter. Catherine Keener is Brilliantly Evil in this Film! What Brilliantly makes her so is that it's Very, Very Subtle.

    Rose Armitage (Allison Williams) - Her phone conversation with Rod regarding Chris. Rod realizing her True Nature. She makes you see that there is Nothing Pure and Angelic about wearing White in this scene. Allison Williams is now one of my Favorite Actresses because of her Dual - The Girl Next Door and Evil - Role!

    Jordan Peele is now one of my Favorite Directors! He is One Brilliant Dude - especially because not only can he make you Scared and Laugh during the Movie, he can make you Scared and Laugh during the same scene!
