Best Picture Nominee:
I've seen "Get Out" twice now. Once with a group of friends way after it released on Blu-Ray and the second time in theaters during the Oscars 2017 Best Picture Festival and both times I have loved this film.
"Get Out" strikes this perfect balance of being a comedy and a horror film, while simultaneously being social commentary about racism.
The political message works really well here, but it's not the only thing going for it, which can often times be the case for films that push a strong political agenda.
The entire cast did so well, that I was scared for Chris and genuinely creeped out by the entire Armitage family. The setup is near perfect, building up the appropriate amount of suspense that we needed for the later half of the film, with the ending keeping me on the edge of my seat literally until the very last scene.
I'm glad that "Get Out" won Best Screenplay and if it had won Best Picture, I wouldn't have complained at all. If you haven't seen it yet, go give it a watch!

Best Picture Nominee:
I decided to see this film at the theater after hearing some of thehype (which was basically that it is an excellent horror film that istold from the perspective of a black man).
Well, I can see this would be truly the worst nightmare of a black man(and really the worst nightmare for us all). This is NOT a film thattries to make the viewer feel "sorry" for black people, nor is it atall preachy, but it is just a good old fashioned horror film with afresh new setting. I'm an old white guy by the way.
The acting is wonderful, and directing is amazing. The film, whilemostly horror, is actually completely hilarious in some parts, makingit the funniest AND scariest movie I have seen in ages (no easy feat).It is a shame that the film will likely not be regarded in the companyof Academy Award potential nominees, because the directing and actingis honestly Oscar worthy. Again, no small feat for a horror movie thatis also funny.
In summary, this is a MUST SEE at the theater and one of the best filmsof the year. It is a fun ride that is very well done!
'Get Out' is billed as a horror film, but - no spoilers in this review! - it's really more of a mystery/tense thriller. It's shot really well and looks great (nice effort from first-time director Peele), with some smart use of the Alabama location and a good score. The premise is purposefully cryptic: "African-American man visits his Caucasian girlfriend's mysterious family estate". Chris (Kaluuya) is meeting Rose (Williams) parents - Missy (Keener) & Dean (Whitford) - for the first time, and they welcome him with open arms, even if the servants seem off.
It's not all about race, but it is a key aspect of the film and handled quite well. The two leads easily carry the film, both having some great scenes. However, the best bits are probably whenever Chris' friend Rod (Howery) is on screen, being hilarious and boisterous, even though often by phone. The humour and some slow bits do well to make the surprises seem even more shocking.
The twist isn't as big as 'Cabin in the Woods' or 'The Sixth Sense', but the final 20min is certainly one of the better endings to a thriller/horror film you'll see for a while! Bit of a slow build up in parts, but a very exciting finish and it's all over in 100min.
