I’ve been wanting to see Jordan Peele’s “Get Out” since the previews last summer.
It’s time for a young African American to meet with his white girlfriend’s parents for a weekend in their secluded estate in the woods, but before long, the friendly and polite ambience will give way to a nightmare.
We watched the movie as a family. I held my jumps and screams in or I’d be watching the rest of the summer scary movies alone. The movie does have a few “gotchya” moments; more from the music than the directing. Stick around for the alternate ending after the credits. The director narrates it. I found this enlightening, like an artist’s statement.
Love Jordan Peel’s work with Keegan Key on their Comedy Central show. It’s a wonder what these guys are thinking about post Obama administration. I miss their humor pointing out the ridiculousness of our culture with topics of race and gender.
As I was researching the movie, I found a few sources left over from the Key & Peele series; like their Dictionary Hub. The site even has .gifs from some of my favorite sketches – like “Substitute Teacher.”
“Get Out” is streaming for $5.99 HD on Amazon.
I’m curious to know what movies you might be watching.
Let the Memorial Day weekend begin…
