What are people saying?

  • El Biffo's rating of the film Get Out

    3.6 Not my genre but this worked great for a movie date with my friend who doesn't watch films in black and white, or with subtitles. I really have to search for a film to watch with this friend. We also saw Carrie, Good Time, American Honey, Tangerine... so along with those films, this is one that makes it though the filters of two very different filmgoers and succeeds very well.

  • Graveyard Poet's rating of the film Get Out

    The issue this film is attempting to confront (the hidden and submerged racism of neoliberal middle/upper class whites and the silencing of black voices) is relevant. The movie starts out promising (awkward dialogue and increasingly uncomfortable situations for the main character meeting the girlfriend's bizarre family) but, unfortunately, ends up over the top and ridiculous.

  • Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Get Out

    Never quite betters its amazing prologue. Finding a balance between contemporary horror movie cliché & social satire, it creates a scene that is not only unnerving, but thought-provoking too. The main narrative flaunts its absurd sci-fi subtext as if trying to critique the genre itself, but while clever, funny & engaging throughout, the characters are two-dimensional & the ending lacks the courage of its convictions.

  • The Macho King's rating of the film Get Out

    2 1/2 stars. People bizarrely praise this film to no end and hold it in such high regard... and I don't get it. I can't shake the feeling that the film is trying to be more than when it actually is. Has it's moments here and there, but ultimately- it didn't have enough balls to go all the way. LilRel Howery is the only dope thing about this movie. Overall a one note, watch it once & then forget about it type of film.

  • Zac Weber's rating of the film Get Out

    The critique of white, neo-liberalism is generally spot on. Peele certainly has a distinct visual style - and I was particularly fond of the bedroom scene when Chris talks to Georgina, as well as the dutch camera angle deployed after Rose is shot. Perhaps the film is less absurd than some would like to believe. (look up the Tuskegee syphilis study)

  • Wee Hunk's rating of the film Get Out

    How do you make the distinction between racism, and just flat out ignorance? If you never came across a person from another race, there would naturally be questions that would make you look stupid. If you've never met a person from another race, why would you inherently believe them to inferior? Maybe if someone told you they were, or you were prone to stereotyping. But that's theoretical. These people were racist.

  • Nick Schwab's rating of the film Get Out

    A victim of the modern mainstream mentality by spoon feeding every single damn comment it makes. Where 1968's Planet of the Apes was hammering in its similar metaphors, it didn't handle it as literal in every scene nor was it one-track minded in this intention, too. It actually worked as a separate story. Bigots in America still sadly may need this forced down their throat, but many will never see it due to this.

  • Duncan Gray's rating of the film Get Out

    The great coup of the first act is that it turns the welcoming smiles of upper-middle-class white liberals into something creepy—and I say that as one of them. From there, it builds to the horror movie sweet spot where the end has license to go insane without betraying the beginning. It is a thoughtful, political flick about being afraid of losing yourself—but Peele knows the secret is a mischievous sense of humor.
