Coming out in February of 2017, comic/director Jordan Peele’s thriller “Get Out” was never even thought of to be an Oscar contender. Then audiences watch it, captured by it’s symbolism and script, “Get Out” hit the big– scoring a 96% on Rotten Tomatoes. Believe or not my first viewing came 9 months later, so what truly is this movie?..

Good

Daniel Kaluuya’s performance in this movie is truly well done. Kaluuya is definitely starting his career of right with this film and it seems to be a promising future. He is also getting wide praise for his work, receiving a nomination at the Golden Globes, and now The Academy Awards. Yet, the best thing about this movie, by far, is the script. Jordan Peele wrote an unbelievable script, including symbolism/foreshadowing in bunches and really captivates the audience. He truly deserve the directing nod he’s gotten in this year’s Oscar awards. To make this fantastic film with a budget of $4.5 million– turning it into almost $265 million is just astounding to me. Overall, huge praise for Peele and Kaluuya and the thrilling script.

Bad

To be honest, there’s not much entirely bad with this movie. For a thriller, I think it lags a touch towards the middle of the movie and it can be a little tough for the audience to follow at points. Another problem could be the acting dominance of Kaluuya in this movie and little acknowledgeable performances outside of his performance. Overall, just a few tiny bad things with he film–but nothing at all major.

Overall, I can definitely understand the praise this movie gets from viewers and even critics. This genre of movie is so different than other Oscar nominated movies and really brings a new taste to the Academy Awards. Don’t get me wrong, I do not see this type of film winning Best Picture but I have to believe it is competing for best original screenplay. The script is absolutely captivating in this piece. Thumbs up for “Get Out”!
