  1. Great review thanks, and I share your ambivalence about this film. IMO, it is over-hyped and its plotline is entirely predictable from the moment our hero spots the black gardener with the blank zombie grin on his face. The most I could say is that it is an entertaining but unoriginal horror spoof mixed with some clever satire.

      I think many people saw that initial 100% RT score and freaked out a little. It’s certainly a solid film, but if you ask me, I think Split (the other Blumhouse film to come out this year) was superior.

      • Totally agree with you MovieBabble. The 100% felt entirely like an orchestrated campaign of friendship for a new director.

      • MovieBabble says:

        I think because it’s a well constructed story with few plot holes that that made it a difficult movie to give a “rotten” review

  2. Thanks for taking time away from your writing to visit my blog! And thanks for this review.

  3. Thanks for the Follow, and I’ve done the same.

    Will check back in on this review when I see the movie. (I don’t like reading anything until after so that I do not have any pre-conceived biases that and so nothing ruins anything for me.

    So glad that I wasn’t the only one who was slightly underwhelmed by this movie. Great review!

    I just saw Get Out yesterday. And I wish I had followed my first mind which was not to go see it. I’m very hesitant to go see movies that have a lot of hype because they usually don’t live up to it. Get out did not!! It was an ok movie. Not bad, but not great at all!! And the end was not the best either. Could have kept my 9 dollars!!

    • MovieBabble says:

      You gotta phase out the hype and see a movie for its own merits! It can vastly change your perception of the film.

      • kevin0225 says:

        I don’t think just because I said there was a lot of hype on this movie means that I was watching the movie through the eyes of the hype it received!! So you implying this is far off!!! Hype or no hype Get Out was not a great movie! Period!!

      • MovieBabble says:

        Considering 99% of critics rated the movie positively on Rotten Tomatoes I’d say that it’s also probably inaccurate to say it’s not a good movie “period”. You may not have enjoyed it, but there’s a difference between the movie not being well constructed and you just not enjoying it.

      • kevin0225 says:

        Just because the majority of movie critics give a movie a good review doesn’t mean others have to and/or have a different opinion. People are allowed to disagree with an “expert” Also I think in order for a person to give a good review on a movie they probably “enjoyed” the movie as well. I seriously doubt if anyone in the world has ever said a movie was good but did not enjoy it. And for the record these same Rotten Tomatoes critics said The Shack was terrible and I thought it was a great movie and much better than Get Out!!

      • MovieBabble says:

        I would never say you can’t have a different opinion, but you do need to be able to explain your POV. And saying a movie is good and not necessarily enjoying it is completely viable. Movies like Blade Runner have many people say they respect the movie and it is well made but may never rewatch it. I’m certainly in that camp.

  6. Just wanted to let you know that I nominated you for a Blogger’s Recognition Award. Congrats. https://djmmtgamechangerdoc.wordpress.com/2017/03/01/a-bloggers-recognition-award-for-me/

  7. I agree with everything you said. A great little film, but not “100% on Rotten Tomatoes” great. Still, I’m glad to see another good horror film hit the cinema. 2016 gave us some good ones, and this one gives me hope we horror fans will enjoy another bountiful year in 2017.

    • MovieBabble says:

      This film definitely bodes well for horror and original films in general. Blumhouse Productions does a great job of making these movies with limited budgets that make back a crap of profit for the studio. Get Out only cost around 5 million to make but already made 30 million in its opening weekend!

    I totally agree with you. I like that the film was slavery in a different sense. It was more “trapped inside yourself” but still controlled by a master. I definitely applaud its creativity. I would say the film is more creepy rather than horror. What did you think about the bingo scene?

  9. spookyscaryr says:

    I couldn’t agree more! I am really shocked to think this holds a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes I mean it is a great film but is it the greatest horror movie of all time? I don’t think so. I thought the first 30 minutes or so tended to drag a bit, but I absolutely loved the second and third act. It is a great movie and I do love that it is getting a lot of attention but 100% is kind of a stretch. Great review as always!

  10. I’m really interested to see this one! Key & Peele always had a bit of a weird, dark, and even prophetic edge to a lot of its comedy, and it seems like this is in the same realm! nice review!

  11. Great review! I havet read much about this but didn’t know it was sort of a dark comedy. Sounds good!
