I shard the GET OUT movie trailer on my Facebook page after my husband shared it on his timeline, and I fell in love. No, I really did. The movie trailer is all that I’m about when it comes to entertainment and writing my own stories – something fresh, new, and possibly even freaky.
Get this… there is this interracial, young and vibrant couple, and they are off to see the female’s family who is white, wealthy and, in my own terms, living in a land far, far away. Well, the fam doesn’t know the boyfriend is black. There is this short conversation about the whole race thing, and then it cuts right to the family meeting the boyfriend, and here is where things turn LEFT. Watch.
Now, I don’t know about you, but this is the unpredictability that I eat up in front of a movie screen. It better be good is all I have to say because… (deep breath)… I need this in my life right now.
Obviously, the wealthy white family from far far away is completely quacked to say the least, and they clearly have no idea how to play BINGO the right way. As far as the guy’s girlfriend, she needs her butt kicked for acting as if she has no idea that her family is looped with zombie slaves running around.
About that zombie slave thing… Yes. I bothered me a tad for like a couple seconds. However, I am one to give the movie a chance. Why? Because I really don’t know what the movie is going to show me. I may think one thing and it be totally opposite of what I think. Therefore, at first glance, I’m good on watching. If toward the end I feel like someone just made me watch a film that took black lives and made them not matter, then yeah… I’m going off. I highly doubt I would have to go off though because that latter thing I just wrote is bound not to happen. (Clues in the facebook post below with the name Peele.)
My feel good ending would be that if the chick he is dating set him up, well, she can get Nat Turnered along with her family and the rest of the zombies can get set free Django style. Win Win I say, but that would be too good to be true. I give
all most art a chance that is bringing something new to the table. As far as this one, I don’t want it to end up like a Wayward Pines which is such a let down. ( I so wanted that to be great, but…)
February is around the corner. Let’s hear it for SPECULATIVE!!
In Universal Pictures’ Get Out, a speculative thriller from Blumhouse (producers of The Visit, Insidious series and The Gift) and the mind of Jordan Peele, when a young African-American man visits his white girlfriend’s family estate, he becomes ensnared in a more sinister real reason for the invitation.
Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya, Sicario) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams, Girls), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy (Catherine Keener, Captain Phillips) and Dean (Bradley Whitford, The Cabin in the Woods).
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 could have never imagined.
Equal parts gripping thriller and provocative commentary, Get Out is written and directed by Peele (Key and Peele) and produced by Blumhouse’s Jason Blum, as well as Sean McKittrick (Donnie Darko, The Box), Peele and Edward H. Hamm Jr. (The Box, Bad Words). The film also stars Caleb Landry Jones (X-Men series), Milton “Lil Rel” Howery (The Carmichael Show), Betty Gabriel (The Purge: Election Year), Marcus Henderson (Pete’s Dragon) and Keith Stanfield (Straight Outta Compton).
