“just because something is weird,
that doesn’t mean it’s good…” – the pretty vixen
she was not with it.
me on the other paw...
so you know,
ever since i saw the trailer for “us” when it debuted,
i was ready for jordan peele to flip me on head.
after seeing the greatness that was “get out”,
i thought i’d be in for a treat.
it was very…
the movie was interesting.
for a horror movie,
it wasn’t that much of a “horror”.
i expect a ton of jump scares and real gory deaths.
you don’t even see folks really get killed all like that.
i don’t know why it had an “r” rating to begin with.
the movie is about a black family who goes to their summer home.
the father (winston duke) wants to take the family to the same beach.
the wife (lupita nyong’o) had a really traumatic experience as a cub at the same beach.
when they come back home that night,
these creepy ass lookalikes decide to show and have a face off.
the reason “why all this shit happened” was pretty solid but…
i’ma little lost with other stuff.
being one of them.
it had it’s moments where i was creeped out,
but then there was others that left me scratching my head.
i can’t give too much away without spoiling it,
but let’s just font that i was like “huh” and “oh ok” at the same time.
the pretty vixen hated it.
there was no changing her mind.
as for me,
i got the main point,
but i felt there could have been more.
the acting was amazing tho.
the entire cast did their thing.
from playing their own roles to how they acted as the “clones”.
after “get out”,
i vowed to watch anything that jordan does,
but i wasn’t particularly blown away with this one.
i’ll wait until internet folks bring about the “clues” i may have missed.
i think i got one,
but now that i’m here to process…
…it might not have been one after all.
i think jordan should have gone more in the direction of “race relations”,
as he did so well in his previous movie
but the concept of “body snatching” is one that could be talked about.
i kinda felt he confused most of us with this one.
I’d the movie 2 outta 5 foxtails.
i’d love to read your thoughts foxhole.
