Not many know this about me: it's not that I don't like scary movies, but I just don't watch them often, and when I do, I can't help but laugh. I don't know why. I've always laughed at scary movies. I did at this one, too, but for a whole other reason because...
Get Out is BRILLIANT! It's one of those very rare scary movies for me
that I actually truly loved: it was hilarious, entertaining, and SMART.
The racial commentary - from its spotlight on interracial relationships,
casual racism, microaggression, colorism, black fetishism, and the nod
to the anti-blackness and racism in the Asian community as well - was
SPOT ON in every way. I was hooked. This movie is as much a must-see as
everyone who has seen it is saying it is. GO SEE IT.
How often do you see a movie with a 99% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes?
Yes, it is that good.
It's a real treat.
