“Us” - Jordan Peele

Recommended Posts

I thought that Get Out was good, but it apparently blew everyone else's tits off which made it a bit disappointing to me when i watched it and didn't think it lived up to the hype. the hype for this one is already spreading after the full trailer playerd during the NBA games yesterday. I'll try and temper expectations this time, but i'm also pretty sure that it's going to at least be good as well.

Get Out was pretty decent with a few twists on a generally cliche basic plot.  I think one of the reasons it got so much play was the incorporation of social justice themes without being too heavy handed. 

I don't do trailers anymore, does this seem to have similar themes?

What’s cool about this trailer is that no one can seem to agree on what social message the movie is trying to deliver, or even if it’s trying to deliver one at all.

Pretty much this.  I mean Get Out was nominated for best picture for Christ sakes.

Looks awesome.

And making “5 On It” sound like a horror anthem? Yes please.

I didn’t know it was possible to make “I got 5 on it” so intense. That portion was very well done. I’m 100% in. I loved get out, but I also didn’t know what it was about when we went to the movies to see it, so I didn’t get sucked into the “hype” if you will. I just thought it was a clever, insightful movie.

I don’t get into horror films anymore. I’ll wait until they’re on Netflix. I did see Get Out on directv and thought it was good. Not sure it was worth an Oscar.

They seem to include all the good stuff and ruin good movies and are deceptive about the bad ones (making you think there's more good stuff).

I'm gonna guess right now how it ends. I haven't read any spoilers yet, so it's a total guess based on Hollywood tendencies and cliches.

The creepy family is the actual original family, and the "normal" family are the clones.

I hope I'm wrong though and they come up with something more original.

One of the latest instagram clips for this movie kind of hints at the origin of the “creepy” family. It seems to show that your theory will not be true. And I don’t think Peele would make a twist quite that easy to predict.

Hey, look what I noticed. This could potentially be a big spoiler, or it could be nothing.

Look at what it says on the carnival house, in yellow under the words "Merlin's Forest". It says "FIND YOURSELF". 

I mean, that's kind of on the nose.

I think they showed it at SXSW. There are lots of reviews out already.

I'm so torn about this movie. On the one hand, I think it's going to be great. On the other, I hate scary movies. I have no problem walking by myself in the woods, like when I go camping, or walking alone down a dark alley. Doesn't bother me one bit. But fuck scary movies.

99% on RT with only 68 reviews.  Of course its RT, and as more reviews come in it'll drop(plus I'm sure some are higher on it being that it's Peel and his Get Out work before it).

 

I'm definately seeing this.

Oh shit. I bought tix to this Saturday’s showing and the entire time last week I thought it was for 3/16. I just checked my Alamo app and, yep, it was for 3/23. That would have been hilarious if we had shown up at the theater this past Saturday.

Some review said it was the scariest movie ever. That's either massive hyperbole or I'm going to be very aroused.

I tend to get more of a psychological scary movie than an typical Nightmare on Elm Street.  At least that's the vibe I get.

For being a “comedy guy”, Peele has had a couple awesome horror film ideas. 

Some of their sketches are pretty dark.

Will it though? Get Out never really dropped. It was 100% forever and is still at 98% now.

I saw Get Out on HBO and thought it was really good but I also think it was overhyped. I expect similar for this one. Will see it next year, when it hits HBO.

 

FWIW, not much of a horror fan, except when humor is involved, a la Evil Dead and even some Freddie stuff. Also like a good psychological, but realistic horror flick. Friday the 13th type stuff just bores me, other than the gratuitous boobs.

Stuckman's review is in. He's usually reliable, aside from the fact that he loves that piece of shit Prometheus.

He says it's "fuckin awesome."

Lulz there was an episode of House of Lies with Kristen Bell in it where he plays a guy pretending to be a Black Guy so he can sale hair products for black women.  Apparently he light enough to have come from a whit family with dark complexion

There was nothing funny about Evil Dead.

You know what I meant, the series as a whole. Sure, the first movie was serious, the rest are comedies.

I saw Army of Darkness when I was around 9 or 10 and loved it.  Then I found out it was part of the Evil Dead series and assumed they were the same.  I regretted watching that, and what the hell were my parents doing letting me rent that shit at 10.

Pshh, they were just happy to have you occupied enough for them to bang one out.  How do you think your little bro came to be?
