Movie Thoughts – Get Out (2017)

Movie Thoughts   This movie is about a young Afro-American guy who is in an interracial relationship and he visits his new girlfriend’s parents (you can find more about this movie here). This movie is f*cked up on too many levels.

   First, it approaches the racial issues and I think it does it pretty well. I believe it’s all around some “predefined” patterns that are in our head. Because we’re used to judge people, all people, we just can’t help ourselves sometimes in doing it. We judge people for everything… for dressing in a certain way, for talking in a certain way, for thinking in a certain way and for looking in a certain way. And for what?

   Secondly, there is another big moral problem there which I can’t talk about without spoiling the movie so I’m going to say just this: money can bring the best and the worst from people… the problem appears when those rich people think they have power over other people’s lives and they act on that. Having a need or a desire does not mean we should do something about that just because we can.

   I think it’s a very interesting movie and it kept me on the edge right from the beginning. Have you seen it? What are your thoughts about this movie?

  1. I only got through your first paragraph so far, but it made me laugh so I had to stop and comment. It’s a great film!! The concept of slavery out of envy is certainly a different take. Definitely a new way to celebrate black life, but celebrating it all the same.

  2. I haven’t seen this one… Your post made me chuckle, then go, 🤔 haha! I am still debating, if I’m going to watch this one or not 🤷🏾‍♀️

  3. After I saw this film, I told everyone I knew that they HAD to see it, as well. I am not someone who sees a lot of films, but I thought this one was great.

  4. Finally a movie that is not a remake, a super hero flick or a reinvented slasher. Not that there is ANYTHING wrong with those, love them myself. But isn’t it nice to have a different movie that keeps you interested while seating on the edge of your seat not only with the thriller aspect but the moral as well, Fantastic flick!!

  5. The last scene before the twist was confusing. I believe it was stronger to portray Chris and the mastermind face-to-face to demonstrate betrayal with the orchestrator explaining the purpose. If no one pointed out to me who was behind the plot, it would elude my attention. It’s a movie I would not re-watch.
