Get Out

A strangely hilarious movie draped with horror tropes and a large amount of allegories of racial relations in America. It portrays African-Americans as objects with traits that white (and the token Asian) Americans desire for themselves. Certainly the stereotype of speed, muscles and, uhm, other physical properties is just so pronounced.

There’s just a few questions I don’t understand. Why go through all that trouble for Rose to operate a honeypot? Wouldn’t someone in this day and age notice Rose’s Facebook page? Wouldn’t the first impression that Rose is used to the groundskeeper and housekeeper be an incredible tip-off? Why would the grandparents keep on doing manual labor after transferring their minds? Why black people to transfer to?

Still, super fun movie.
