    What about the story was confusing to you? Genuinely asking.

    Not so much confusing. But a lot of the answers presented didn’t make much sense for me or were unsatisfying.

    – How has this group of humans survived so long underground? Same for the rabbits.

    – How was the boy able to control is tether while others were not?

    – Where did they get there scissors and red suits from?

    – The final spoiler of the movie was unsatisfying, mainly for how obvious it was

    It remind me in a weird way of Mother!, it felt more like a allegory when it came to the ending that really wasn’t meant to make sense as a straightford story. Just be a metaphor for classism and other things.

    Costumes would be an extremely undeserved nomination. It’s basically red jump suits.

    Yeah, I like the costume design. But it is hard to imagine with movies like The Irishman, Cats, Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, Downton Abbey, The Goldfinch, Ford v. Ferrari…etc, that the red jumpsuits are going to be enough to land a nomination at the end of the year, the Academy likes a lot more showy and elaborate costume design than that.

    If the red jumpsuits remain an iconic symbol of the film throughout the year then who knows, The Handmaid’s Tale has been nominated for Costumes at the Emmys for each of its seasons so far.

    I would never expect Us to win Costumes.

    Jordan Peele just said in an interview that he would never cast a white lead. « NO white lead ».

    So anti-white racist is okay in 2019?! If a white director had said that, he would be fired…

    So it’s racist for a director of a racial minority to want to only cast diverse actors for the sake of diversity and create more opportunities for minorities versus resorting to white people who get like 99% of lead roles?

    “No user starts this shady” - someone culturally relevant.

    Also got banned because...reasons? So, I guess ciao.

    There’s a difference between « I’m going to previlegiate black people because they are in minorities » versus « NO white lead allowed »

    But the dude is half-white and was raised by a white mother… I don’t get it.

    This video says it all :https://youtu.be/6Ty4iLTAJ5k

    He literally said: “I don’t see myself casting a white dude as the lead in my movie. Not that I don’t like white dudes. But I’ve seen that movie. The way I look at it, I get to cast black people in my movies. I feel fortunate to be in this position where I can say to Universal, ‘I want to make a $20 million horror movie with a black family.’ And they say yes.” He is saying what I said in my previous post: that he feels lucky to give racial minorities a chance to be leads and creating a message with them versus using another white guy that is taking up all the roles that could go to minorities. You putting “no” in uppercase or using a black YouTuber who agrees with you isn’t going to make your argument any stronger, not to mention 99% of reverse racism arguments are racist in of themselves, so nice try.

    Saw the movie past weekend and I really liked it. I can see it getting awards love, but I can also see it being completely shut out. On Another note, my family and I happened to be at the Santa Cruz beach boardwalk on one of the days they were filming, and it was funny because we didn’t know they were filming a movie, so a lot of people thought they were satanists or something, due to their red jumpsuits and just standing hand in hand.

    A white director doesn’t have to say it because it has already been happening since the beginning of movies… I’m white and I don’t have a problem with it. Get out had one black main character and the rest of the main characters were white. The friend and the people who were switched with the grandparents were black but those weren’t main roles. And how is that racist to you cause I’m confused. Especially since you’re twisting his words when he says he doesn’t see himself casting a white guys as a lead. That means that there is a possibility that he would if that person fit the part but as of right now he doesn’t see it happening. Btw Jordan, a black man, writes, directs, and produces his movie so when he is writing the storyline he is probably putting himself into that perspective of the character so if course he is gonna have a black lead because he himself is black. Not everything is about race. I’m white and I think it’s a great idea to cast more black people because we need diversity to open up people’s eyes. Another thing is that we need to have more black people in just regular everyday parts. Lupita won an Oscar for a role as a slave… Mahershala won an Oscar for the role of an African-American pianist. Why can’t a black person just win a damn Oscar for a part that can be meant for any race???? Sorry for the rant just had to put that out there. BTW lupita for leading actress 2020!!!!

    The movie just had a -59% decrease at the Box Office this weekend… yep the word of mouth is bad. It’s probably one of the most overrated movie of the year by the critics.

    Lol a $152m domestic gross at its third week is bad WOM. Lol the trying in this thread and the total misunderstanding of box office is really juvenile.

    I guess you mean me when you write trying in this thread. I’m not trying to do anything, few technical nods wouldn’t be out of place (like with “A Quiet Place” last year) and Lupita does really stellar job. Elisabeth Moss is quietly bulding quite a nice film resume even if – for now – it’s overshadowed by her 2 iconic TV performances and it was refreshing to see her be funny. Other than that it was a disappointment for me once they reunited and left the house after invasion.

    No baby, that was just your opinion of the movie. I mean people who are trying to downgrade the success with the tired “bad WOM so it won’t do as good as Get Out” narrative. You weren’t included in that
