Get Out (2017)
Director: Jordan Peele
You know what I say? I say one down, a couple hundred-thousand to go. I don’t mean to get on my high horse, but I’m telling you, I do not like the fucking deer. I’m sick of it, they’re taking over; they’re like rats, they’re destroying the ecosystem. I see a dead deer on the side of the road and I think to myself, “That’s a fucking start.”
The Photograph reminded me that there are certain people that just soak into you. They replace your solid plans for a comfortable life with chaotic ease. At first it seems that their elevated personality is overwhelming and may leave you breathless like too many flights of stairs or dumbstruck as if in the presence of an abstract genius.
Everything they do comes from a story and everything you do together is a treat. You know that once someone is a part of you, so steadily weaved into your rhythm, routine and responsibility that because of your togetherness there is movement. Whether it’s the gentle sway of conversation or the generous trot toward an existence of sufficiency, there is sureness that the world turns brightly another day when they’re near.
It is also that when you are apart contentedness remains. In silence and singularly you still are the unheralded success, the warm validation, the whole and changing person blinking back in the mirror. They, the one or many that understand your singularity are but an addition to your blooming nature and capable hands.
The movie, flashing back through generations of heartbreak and reconciliation speaks the message clearly that being influenced and loved by others is not an issue when you are the masterwork of all your lessons learned and the chooser of your present human spirit.
Dir. Jordan Peele
Lil Rel Howery
Just listened to him on Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard. Rel is so funny I gotta watch some of his stuff. I’m ashamed to admit I’ve not seen Get Out yet. I’ll see if I can remedy that soon. But I like Dax, not a huge fan of Monica but I don’t hate her.
I’m way behind on podcasts. Most of them are way too quiet and confusing but I’m going to keep trying to find more. I’m mostly caught up on Michael Rosenbaum’s podcast Inside of You. I often end up crying listening to it.
tbh any horror film would be 100% better if it had rod williams
also 200% likely to have a happy ending
Bird Box was an okay movie, but the dialogue sucked. They made Lil Rel Howery so unfunny while in Get Out he was the highlight. However when (spoilers) Gary, Tom Hollander’s character, got shot and all he said was “Oww” it was pretty damn funny.
I got the most annoying yet incredibly useful and necessary character. You’re right Buzzfeed, I am Charlie.
Petition to stop the self-sacrificing POC trope
This is do catchy 😍
