    Default Get Out

    Anyone seen this? I haven't yet, but I've heard great things. Is it more horror based or does the satirical stuff take over?

    Yeah, it's absolutely fantastic!

    I thought it was really cool to see so many black/white mixed-couples were at the theater for it, too. I noticed a few the last time I saw Split and when they showed the trailer for Get Out before it everyone kinda chuckled at the end because one of the couples was like "YES!" and the other one distinctly, loudly said "Oh, we are DEFINITELY seeing THAT," lol. Pretty much the PERFECT set-up for a date-night movie.

    And it TOTALLY delivered!

    More twists than you'd expect and a few really INTERESTING ones, too.

    Keanu was all right and pretty fun but OMFG Jordan Peele fucking KILLS IT with Get Out.

    Definitely go see it, this movie is seriously awesome and hilarious.

    :)

    Haven't seen it, but heard a ton. Rarely do I see films in theaters these days, the only one I'm interested in seeing on the big screen is T2, but living in Canada currently, fuckin' nobody knows when its coming out. The people behind that film botched some serious shit.

    Based on what I gather from the people who's opinions on movies I respect, it's a solid film, 8/10 give or take for simply being the first decently original and genuinely unpredictable 'scary movie' after years upon years of cheap jump scares and torture porn. I might go see it, I'm sure I'll enjoy it. I doubt it's the fuckin' otherworldly groundbreaking classic that literally 99% of reviewers praise it as. I think that's just the 2016 effect of 'black people, so therefore amazing.'

    Maybe I'm old but the only T2 I know of is Terminator 2 and that has been out for years, did I miss something?

    T2 Trainspotting.

    Months and months ago, the official release date was listed as January 27th. A short while later, it was January 27th in the UK and February 3rd in the US. Being in Canada, I assumed it'd be the 27th, because typically the 'UK release date' means all commonwealth nations, or it has in the past. No word came about on that, so I started assuming it'd be February 3rd. Then that was just kind of dropped, and no release date at all was given for awhile. Then some American theater chains started saying there'd be a 'limited release' on February 11th, I didn't know if that would also include their Canadian theaters. Then IMDB listed the release date in both Canada and America as April fucking 7th, and now Cineplex has March 17th as the release date.

    In other words, this has been the bane of my existence and a source of seething frustration. Haven't been this excited for a film in years, still have the original Trainspotting poster from when I was a kid.

    I'm like the world's biggest fan of Michael Bay's Transformers movies and it even annoys ME when people call Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen fucking "T2."

    Um. NO.

    That title was claimed DECADES ago and James Cameron owns it FOREVER.

    But, YES, thank you SO FUCKING MUCH for confirming that I wasn't just losing my mind thinking Trainspotting 2 was supposed to have been out AGES ago. I've been fucking DYING to see that movie and was practically counting down the seconds to NOTHING when it was initially supposed to be released in the States. Still waiting! It'll be worth it so no worries but OMFG kill me more why don't you. I'm assuming they're just doing their best to place it logically according to competition in various, differing markets.

    And it's not just some patronizing white-guilt thing.

    Get Out is sincerely just an EXCELLENT fucking movie.

    Absolutely a modern Hitchockian masterpiece, without a doubt.

    Not to oversell it or anything but GODDAMN it is GOOD.

    T2 was never an official alternative title for Terminator 2. People just sort of took to calling it that over time. The title of Trainspotting 2 is literally 'T2 Trainspotting.' I have no idea why, kind of an unnecessarily confusing fuckup on Danny Boyle's part, because, y'know, *why?*. I definitely getcha.

    Most likely, though I still see that as a shitty mismanaged strategy. This isn't some tiny little indie film doing festival circuits. This is the sequel to one of the defining movies of the 90s and one of the greatest films to come out of the UK. If you lived in a college dorm room in 1996, you had a Trainspotting poster, it's what made you cool. It was a global phenomenon. The trailer release did waves, and now that the movie has come and gone in the UK, all the reviews are out, I have no idea how they're going to reinvigorate that 'hype' in North America for casual audiences. I mean, I just wanna see the damn thing the minute it's here, but I think they fucked up hard. Back in early January I called a franchise theater close to me and asked when they'd get the film, and the manager told me 'Y'know, you're the sixth person today to ask me that. We have no idea.' I think the people behind the film didn't realize how big it really was across the pond.

    See, I sincerely doubt that. I think there's a lot of 'horror films have been shit for 20 years' goggles being worn by many, but I could surely be wrong. I'll have to see it.

    I absolutely loved Get Out. I went into the theater knowing literally nothing about the plot or anything, but it ended up being the best movies I have seen in a while. I sometimes get bored with movies that throw every single detail in front of your face like you are stupid and don't force you to do some thinking of your own. Of course this movie does some of that because all films have to, but for the most part, I really enjoyed the subtleties of the commentary on racial relations, and the artful symbolism woven throughout the movie. I really want to see it again because I think it is a movie that has a lot more in it than can be digested in one viewing. I would definitely recommend seeing this movie. I liked how the writers took the situation of a black person amongst all white people and played it out as a horror story. Initially, comparing those things sounds a little extreme as a plot, but after watching it and seeing all the subtle and not-so-subtle micro (and not micro) aggressions imposed on the black protagonist, I realized that maybe these are real things that black people in America go through, and that they are actually comparable to a horror story. The film was very well-made, and I actually physically felt fear, disgust, etc. Not many movies have done that to me to that degree. Go see this movie!

    I'm really looking forward to seeing the film, and will not be listening to Samuel L. Jackson's regressive opinions on casting before I do so.

    This movie was bucking awesome! Plus for Jordan peeles first attempt at a horror movie he did fucking amazing. My only minor nitpick is that the awesome deer skeleton from the trailer wasn't in the movie.


    Typing on Phone keeping bucking, seems more appropriate.
