Get out >>>>>>three billboards (meh), dunkirk (zzzz), Ladybird (white girl problems)
That said, Get Out didnt blow me away either. I just think there are other movies that are more overrated this year.

SJW-esque critics are trying their best to make movies like Get Out, Lady Bird and The Big Sick happen this year. Hopefully they will not be successful in getting awards for mediocrity.January 3, 2018 at 8:31 pm #1202455098
You aren’t missing anything. Critics are trying to make fetch happen.
Yes, one of the highest-grossing, most critically acclaimed films of the year is just critics trying to make fetch happen.
Critically acclaimed with a big ole 84 Metacritic score and 3 100s lolJanuary 3, 2018 at 8:35 pm #1202455101

It still pains me that it did happen last year.
As much as i love LLL and was disappointed at it loss, yet Moonlight for me was the 2nd best movie of the year. So i was disappointed but not mad.January 3, 2018 at 9:01 pm #1202455109
Some quotes from an EW interview with new members earlier this year:
If Get Out is going to be in this year, that’s great. To me, part of the achievement of Get Out is its blend of absolute horror and hilarity. It seems to be a realistic portrayal of what, over the years, I’ve understood to be a representation of the black man’s nightmare… and at the same time, there’s humor. That’s amazing to me. What I would love to see is for somebody to say and portray — in such an exciting and original way — a black woman’s nightmare, because it’s different. I’ve never see anything show me the anxiety and the trauma at a serious level about the true trauma black men suffer, and to put that historically and to put that together with humor is a victory. The performances are incredible. It’s glorious.
Get Out, absolutely. It’s groundbreaking in so many ways, both in terms of its message and artistically. Jordan Peele invented another genre. He’s onto something, and [his perspective] is something we’ve needed more of. I’m proud that a studio took a chance to fund a story like his. We do have an opportunity to raise a film like this — and other films that are daring, bold, and ambitious with a singular point of view — into the American consciousness. The more we do that, the more variety of storytelling we will have.
Get Out, 100 percent. I love that it combines comedy and horror, but it’s dealing with some deep racial issues that we don’t talk about in this country. It was delivered in such a perfect way, in that black as well as white audiences can totally enjoy it and digest it and still get the message. Those performances were fantastic, especially the performance of Daniel Kaluuya. He should be in the Best Actor race.January 3, 2018 at 9:15 pm #1202455117

or perhaps critics have appreciated it more upon rewatching it?
I have heard that the movie gets better on rewatch, because once you know what’s going to happen, you can see how all of the pieces come together.January 3, 2018 at 9:34 pm #1202455133
Get Out (99%) is the best reviewed film of the year on Rotten Tomatoes.
