I’ll basically just copy and post what i had up on my story yesterday and make a post about it here since a lot of people are asking what i thought about the film. also posted on the bottom picture my personal favorite scene from the whole movie where red and adelaide are fighting with each other. i personally liked get out better than us. true, us is more of a horror film than get out is. i’d say get out is more of a thriller. and yes, i got all the easter eggs and hidden meanings but for me personally, it just didn’t work. it leaves out a lot of unanswered questions for me. sure, us was great on it’s own but there was just a little too much humor for my own taste, i personally don’t like that much humor in horror movies. i like it to be taken serious and for the atmosphere to be dark the whole way through yet the whole theatre kept laughing a lot including myself at many moments throughout the movie, whether it was meant to be funny or not we laughed and sometimes i just felt like i couldn’t take the movie serious, which sure it’s just a movie but still.
i will probably give it another watch at some point as it took me a little bit to process this the first time it does have a big plot twist that may not be so straight forward for everyone and i think that’s why it might leave some viewers leaving confused or unsatisfied. everything does makes a little more sense right towards the end of the movie. i feel like if the movie had went another direction yet still used almost the same plot i could have liked it better but i did like how the film was shot, cinematography was beautiful, the score was dark and chilling and set the tone for the film. but story wise i’d have to say i liked get out better as it was a more straight forward kind of film. if you’re looking for a cool plot twist though and something that will get you thinking go check out us, you might like it! if you have watched it, what were your thoughts? what things did you like or didn’t like and which film of peele’s do you like better? according to my poll it seems like we do like get out a little more, yes?🤔
