GENRE: Mystery, Thriller
WHAT I LIKE?
Jordan Peele is on the roll again. After the success of “Get Out”, here comes another brilliant masterpiece that is changing the thriller Genre with Us. What I like about Us is how the weird and scary stuff blended very well. For me, this is one of the best thrillers in Hollywood offering a visually-compelling Cinematography and a very disturbing and creative storyline. I have never imagined that Horror can be pushed in these limits. I am literally at the edge of my seat most of the time. The creepiness of the film is going down my spine. The film was effective to bring that kind of fear that lingers for a while. The concept is entirely unique and has a strong foundation that is gearing towards old-fashioned horror and thriller films. This R-16 film is a complete blood-bath too. Violence is dominant. What I even adore about the movie “Us” is its comedy that is staged well on vital scenes. For me, this is a refreshing take on the genre. The twist is also brilliant. You have to watch “Us”. PERIOD!
WHAT I DON’T LIKE?
What I don’t like is the influence of the movie for me to watch it again. GAAAH!

GENRE: R (Mystery, Comedy, Drama, Suspense)
WHAT I LIKE?
When expectations are low for the film, you began to like the movie as whole despite minor flaws. In the case of Get Out, the film exceeded my expectations at all cost. The film has the perfect blend of weird, scary, shocking and very disturbing twist that will truly stir your emotions from beginning until the end. Started off very quick and direct in terms of phasing and story-telling techniques. The movie touched issues of racism, romantic relationship and a very dark secret of the family and the neighborhood. It will start with familiarity and simple scenes. Just fee minutes later, the weird and scary stuff starts happening. I really like how the Director was able to pull of some amazing scenes involving people and their emotions. These were so vital in making the feel so eerie and very strange. You can almost feel the fear of Daniel’s character being surrounded by strange happenings around him. I commend the sound engineering as well. Production design was simple and is very inclined with the demand of the script. Moreover, the actors and actresses were also good in the movie. The climax was the film’s strength. I did not expect that happening. It was shocking and scary at the same time. The movie left me with a lingering feel too. One of the best Psychological-themed movie that is generally light in terms of scenes and tone but very heavy and dark in terms of plot. I was impressed.
WHAT I DON’T LIKE?
Well, this might disappoint some straight-horror fans or somehow they will find it lacking at some point.
