|Even the white dogs in this are racist|
The white people are acting stranger than usual. A man (A, BLACK, MAN!!!), goes with his white girlfriend to the country for a visit with her family. At first, the man only notices the minor little oddities of her kinfolk, but then all honkyness breaks loose and the man has a serious problem on his hands. It appears that the limited amount of brothas and sistas in the small country town are all under some form of hypnotic (honknotic) mind control, and now The Man is coming for...the man. Let us pray that the man gets free and makes it home in time for, a nice meal. What, did you think I was gonna make some racist remark about what black people eat?! How small-minded you are.
My Prediction- This film is obviously a social commentary on race relations in our country, and who better to make one about them than Jordan Peele (Key & Peele). The guy has a great sense of humor, and it will be interesting to see what his first big screen solo project will show. It looks more serious and creepy than actually funny, yet I wouldn't be surprised if there aren't more than a few hilarious moments to be seen. Get Out will not be a Piece Of Shit. Although, I did predict that Keanu wouldn't be either.
Mike's Take -
Jordan Peele makes his directorial debut with Get Out, a weird Stepford Wives style movie, that shows how racism in this country is still strong, albeit moved into a new direction. A white girl, dating a black man, decides to take her boyfriend to meet her parents, when they get there, the boyfriend sees that the black people that live in that neck of the woods are all acting strange.
He finds out that there have been experiments done to "whitewash" the black people to make them act more in accordance to the "community standards" set forth by the "rich white people" that live there.
The boyfriend fights back, but in the end, he becomes just like the rest of them.
This movie is not going to be a piece of shit, in fact, we're late to the party on this movie and it's getting rave reviews.
It's going to be interesting to see how Jordan Peele can take his comedy and writing skills from Key and Peele and turn it around, to give us a movie that we should still be talking about at Oscar time.
