    This thread will make for an interesting time capsule in thirty years, when Get Out is widely agreed to be a seminal masterpiece.

    I know! It’s like there being a thread in 1977 “We Need To Talk About Star Wars…” or better yet, there being a thread in 1989 called “We Need To Talk About Do The Right Thing…” Yes, I know neither of those movies won BP at the Oscars, but both were instant classics and remain beloved to this day, just as Get Out is an instant classic and shall remain beloved decades from now.

    I actually think Do the right thing is still overrated as hell, so I’m pretty sure I’ll still think get out is overrated in 30 years, not hailing it as a masterpiece.

    Some quotes from an EW interview with new members earlier this year:

    Do you happen to have the link for this interview?

    Get Out reminds me of something M. Night Shyamalan would produce. I think the comparisons to “Split” are pretty apt. When watching “Get Out” I felt similar to how I felt watching “The Village” (2004) and “Lady In The Water” (2006)

    Darling, thank God those overrated movies didn’t win the Oscar. The Academy was right awarding Annie Hall and Driving Miss Daisy.

    As a famous singer said, "ain't nobody gonna Thatcher, Thatcher, Thatcher!"

    It won’t let me post the link here for some reason but if you google the quotes you’ll probably find them.

    Lumping “Get Out” in with all of that Shyamalan dreck is pretty insulting.

    Ditto…….Get Out is far more original than most movies this year. Most people will remember it years from now.

    As beautiful as CMBYN was, theres nothing groundbreaking about it. Ladybird is just another coming of age story about a quirky white teen. Three billboards doesnt quite reach the same heights as Fargo. Mollys game isnt even Sorkins best work. I havent watched the Post / darkest hour but they look like your average political drama. Most people wont remember these movies

    Mother? Blade Runner? Javier Bardem? Dunkirk? Lmfaooooooo I’m crying.

    Cry me a river. Facts are facts.

    Sorry I know this happened a few pages ago, but people arrogantly stating “facts are facts” about their own movie opinions are part of the reason I never bother taking part in discussions here anymore.

    Split and Get Out are actually structured very similarly. They have similar backdrops in realistic situations, and then through out the film there are gentle nods to the supernatural until the final act when things go full tilt unrealistic with the fantastical unrealistic horror bent. They are also both filled with non-humoristic side kick characters for comedic relief, and the final pay off is questionably satisfying for some and anti-climatic for others.

    Warning for spoilers

    The Village: They were in New York the whole time

    Split: The man turned into some super-human werewolf thing

    Signs: The aliens are allergic to water

    Get Out: Crazy old white people want to take the bodies of fit black people

    There are allegories for all of these films but I don’t know how satisfying they were for audiences.

    That’s all well and good that you noticed stylistic similarities, but leveling them on cinematic worth is what’s insulting. Hopefully it’s just the former and not the latter.

    Cinematic worth is subjective.

    I do not understand why Betty Gabriel and LilRel Howery were not included in the SAG nominations for Ensemble. LilRel provided the comedy and Betty Gabriel was haunting.

    I believe the reason was technical: neither was billed on a separate card in the main titles, which is a SAG rules requirement. It’s an absurd rule that consistently leads to confusing oversights, but there we go.

    As for Get Out’s success, I couldn’t be happier that this genre-defying, zeitgeist-capturing, jaw-droppingly smart, outrageously funny film has become a modern classic in record time. Who knew that the most visible middle finger to the sinister political powers of today would be an artistically progressive indie.

    A Best Picture win still seems like a pipe dream but the fact it’s not out of the question is an astoundingly satisfying achievement on its own right. And Daniel Kaluuya is everything.

    Lil Rel Howery was not ensemble-eligible?  That is tragic.
