  1. It’s official: Jordan Peele is the next John Carpenter! I can’t wait to see what he has next for us.

  2. Saw Us last night. Thought it was okay/pretty good. Felt like the movie was trying to do too many things at once. This could of been an awesome psychological horror if it had left out the political stuff.

  3. Just got back from seeing US. It was ok, nothing amazing tho. The tone was a little all over the place, I think they tried to insert too many jokes from some of the characters in it, given what was happening to them at the time it just felt out of place. Also some themes of the movie were a little underwhelming to me, I would have liked the mystery to either have been kept more vague or for the big reveal to have been something more thought provoking. As for the big mystery, or at least a key component of it, I think if you are a fan of these sort of movies, you will see it coming a mile off. I was able to deduce it from the trailer/deductive reasoning alone, there’s also several hints throughout the movie itself, so keep your eyes peeled. I’m now looking forward to see if my theory of how Toy Story 4 will play out ends up being true too, I’m usually on the money for my predictions.

    So yeh I’d say overall it was just ‘ok’, it’s worth going to see, there’s some definite entertainment value there, but I just feel that Get Out was a much better film.

    There was definitely some political subtext there too, but I didn’t really pay much attention to it, tho I feel like some of the narrative choices may have been influenced by the decision for this subtext a little too much, to the point where the story just ends up feeling underwhelming by it’s conclusion. It’s not too in your face tho, so it shldn’t distract the casual movie goer.

    The pacing was a little iffy too. The good news is the film starts off with a flashback scene which is key to the mystery so pulls you in to begin with, then from here it doesn’t take long at all for the sh*t to start hitting the fan. However, about 2/3rd’s of the way thru the movie, I feel like the film starts to meander a little too much, very much treading over stereotypical slasher territory. The final act did begin to pull me back in, but as I’ve noted before, the ultimate payoff was considerably underwhelming.

    To me, the stand out actor/actress was Lupita Nyong’o who plays the Mother of the protagonist family.

    *There is no post credit scene for this movie, so no need to wait around for one once the credits start to role!

    I rated this film a 3/5.
    For comparison purposes, I rated Get Out a 5/5.

  4. I’m off to see this tomo night with my fiance. I’m super HYPE for it. I LOVED Get Out and love Horror films, esp those with an element of mystery to them. High hopes for this one! πŸ€ πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜‹πŸ‘ŠπŸΏ

  5. I cannot wait to see this movie. Jordan Peele did so well with ‘Get Out”. The trailer for this looked creepy and amazing. I hope this movie delivers, just like his first one did. Can’t wait to see it.
