Get Out is a Horror Masterpiece

Get Out is produced by Blumhouse Productions. It is written and directed by Jordan Peele, and is also his directorial debut. The cast consists of Daniel Kaluuya as Chris, Allison Williams as Rose, Bradley Whitford as Dean, Catherine Keener as Missy, Caleb Landry Jones as Jeremy, and Lil Rel Howry as Ron.

The Plot:

Now that Chris and his girlfriend, Rose, have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean. At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he never could have imagined.

Warning: Spoilers!

 

get-out-106618

Like I mentioned before, this is Jordan Peele’s directorial debut, and it’s incredible how great of a job he did given this is his first film. The way Jordan Peele is able to get certain messages across throughout this film is amazing. Everyone in the cast shines, and delivers fantastic performances that keep you glued to the screen the entire time. Get Out is not just another horror film. It is a horror film with a statement about racism, and it does an amazing job showing the horrifying affect racism has on our society, and the horrifying struggle black people have to go through everyday no matter what. It’s literally jaw dropping, and outstanding how close to reality this film is to our society today. Daniel Kaluuya’s character Chris is feeling rightfully nervous because his girlfriend’s parents aren’t aware he’s black, and that right there is something black people face all the time. The idea that we may never be fully accepted just due to the color of our skin, and the fact that we are always on alert not because we want to be, but because we have no choice but to be with how dangerous the world is for us just because we look different. Unfortunately, that’s the reality we all live in, and have been living for decades. And that’s pretty much what Chris fears as he is getting ready to meet Rose’s parents. He fears for his life, and he has a right to be afraid.

When we’re eventually introduced by Bradley Whitford and Catherine Keener’s characters Dean and Missy Armitage, Rose’s parents, things already start to get weird.  When Dean asks Rose and Chris how long has their relationship been going on, right from there I could feel the mood change. It’s not too obvious, but you can immediately tell that Rose’s parents are more than what they lead on. Especially once Dean decides to give Chris a tour of the house as he goes into detail about his father Roman Armitage who was a track athlete that lost in the 1936 Olympics to an african american man named Jesse Owens. It’s not until much later on in the film is it revealed that Roman grew jealous of Jesse, and chose to begin an experiment that transplants white people’s brains into the bodies of young African Americans. Roman would then pass down this practice to Dean and his family, and what we notice later on is that, Chris was being treated like a tool, and being auctioned off the entire time without realizing it. Even the audience doesn’t realize this until around the second to third act of the film. It’s terrifying, because the whole time Rose, Chris’s girlfriend was just using him to sell him off, and it’s not something we notice at all due to her sweet personality we’re introduced to fairly early on in the movie. This is due to an amazing performance done by Allison Williams. It’s like I said before, this cast is incredible, and almost every action made by a character is done for a reason and holds a deeper meaning even after watching it a second time.

Daniel Kaluuya also gives an outstanding performance and one of the scenes he shines best in is when he’s having a one on one interaction with Rose’s mother Missy played by Catherine Keener. Missy performs an act of hypnotism on Chris by getting him to talk about the tragic passing of his mother, and it’s from here that things start to get crazy, because at this moment Chris is barely in control of his movements. He’s reliving his entire nightmare as a child not being able to help his mother, and is then dropped into the Sunken Place. The Sunken Place being a hallucination that traps the person who’s under hypnosis into a black void that is inescapable. It’s a scene that is wonderfully acted between Catherine Keener and Daniel Kaluuya, and is most definitely one of the best but also one of the most terrifying scenes in the whole movie. Daniel Kaluuya is fantastic, and does an amazing job of giving you a performance that makes you genuinely fear for him as if you’re in the moment with him. And once again, we have to thank Jordan Peele for doing an amazing job directing that scene as well.

Eventually Chris does manage to escape and is saved by his best friend Rod Williams played by Lil Rel Howery. Lil Rel Howery is mainly the comedic relief of the film, but also comes off as the paranoid friend that fears for chris as he’s meeting his girlfriend’s parents for the first time. And as the film goes on, we begin to notice Rod was right to be paranoid. In a lot of ways, Rod is the hero of the story. Not just because he tries to warn Chris ahead of time that something isn’t right, but also because he goes out of his way to track down Chris and eventually save him right at the time Chris needed him most. It’s honestly a relief and he brings a light-hearted atmosphere which is definitely needed given the dark mood the film has majority of the time. Lil Rel Howery is great in the role he’s in, and I can’t wait to see him in more projects in the future.

 

Overall, Get Out is a horror masterpiece. It doesn’t waste anytime introducing you to the characters while also getting you invested into the story. It’s actually insane that this was Jordan Peele’s first movie, and I’m just proud to have experienced this film in theaters. Jordan Peele’s next film is Us, which is also once again produced by Blumhouse, and it will also be another horror-thriller film much like Get Out.

I can not wait to see what Jordan Peele pulls off with that movie, and I will be there day one! Hopefully you all enjoyed this article, and let us know what you thought of the film by sending us a message on Facebook or Twitter @Earth2ComicCast. Have a great day!

 

Tron: Legacy is still one of the best original Disney films ever made

It’s been almost a decade since the release of Tron: Legacy, and it’s amazing to see how well this film is still able to match so many blockbusters today.  I decided to give this film another re watch, and I’m proud to say it’s still as awesome as the first time I saw it. Tron: Legacy is directed by Joseph Kosinski and written by Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis. The film stars Jeff Bridges as Kevin Flynn, Garrett Hedlund as Sam Flynn, Olivia Wilde as Quorra, Bruce Boxleitner as Alan Bradley, Michael Sheen as Castor, James Frain as Jarvis, and Beau Garret as Gem.

For those of you out there that haven’t see the film in a while or haven’t seen the film at all yet, I’ll give a brief summary of the plot:

Sam the son of famous video-game developer Kevin Flynn has been haunted for a long time by his father’s mysterious disappearance. A strange signal draws Sam to Flynn’s Arcade, and he is pulled into the same cyberworld in which his father, its creator, has been trapped for 20 years. With fearless warrior Quorra, Kevin and Sam seek to escape from a universe that, while magnificent, is far more advanced and dangerous than Kevin had ever imagined.

 

tron-legacy-1366x768-1--145691

The world Joseph Kosinski has created in this film is spectacular, and is just straight up gorgeous! To this day the cinematography is able to rival and even beat most blockbusters today.  The moment this film takes you into the cyber world it’s jaw dropping, and it just gets more and more amazing as each scene passes. It’s definitely something to admire, and the style and look of this film alone is enough to keep anyone engaged through the whole story. You’re constantly in shock of how well detailed this world is and how much time and energy went into the design of this film in order to make it have a unique and distinct feel unlike any other Disney or sci-fi movie you’ve seen before. Joseph Kosinski does an amazing job of capturing your interest and making you want to know more about this world as Sam is first introduced to it. Garrett Hedlund is great in his role, and almost serves as an avatar for the audience, because as he’s experiencing this world for the first time in shock, so are we. It’s a fantastic original story that I think honestly deserves more praise than it has gotten in the recent years, and it’s filled with well developed characters that you grow to love very early on.

Tron-Legacy-HD-Wallpapers-4-1864x1272

The whole cast gives amazing performances across the board, and you’re left emotionally invested in these characters. You root for them, and you want them to be victorious in the end. To be honest, as much as I like Sam, Olivia Wilde as Quorra steals the show! She is such a badass and she truly owns the title as Fearless Warrior! Trust me, she’s awesome! Jeff Bridges is also very good, and is able to make you feel the pain of a father who’s been away from his son for so long, and wants nothing more but to rebuild his relationship with him despite the breakthrough he’s made. In the end, that’s what matters the most. A film filled with characters that you grow attached to, and want to see more of in later sequels. There is so much to love about this movie aside from the characters such as: The Music!

I don’t even know where to start. Daft Punk composes the score for the film, and I’m just gonna say….Wow! They nailed it! Every. Single. Time. The music is almost a character of it’s own, and elevates the whole film, allowing for more beautiful scenes to shine at their best! Check out a sample of the music here:

 

Tron: Legacy is not only a Disney film, but a sci-fi film that not only succeeds in the genre it’s in, but also is a breath of fresh air. It’s filled with so many different aspects to it that relates to our world, but it’s all heightened to the max. The only disappointment with this movie is that I thought it could have been a bit longer. A sequel has been said to be in development for a while now, but unfortunately it looks like it will be a long time until we see it.  Even though Tron: Legacy was released 8 years ago, it still feels like a film that came out today, and it still has managed to bring a smile to my face every time I watch it. It’s not perfect, but its a fun ride that I’m sure many of you will enjoy. Have you seen Tron: Legacy?

Worlds Of DC: What this can mean going forward.

Warner Brothers just recently announced their upcoming films for later in the year and early next year and during their Hall H panel at Comic Con, they announced a new name for their  banner of upcoming DC films. That banner being:

Worlds-of-DC

Now this title can mean a lot of things, but giving the recent announcements of all the upcoming DC films that were made during the year, one can only help but wonder will this new name have any significance to the change of approach WB has decided to take with their DC films going forward? Well… that’s what it looks like, and the new title is a fantastic way to get that idea across to the public.

Earlier this year it was announced by WB that a solo Joker film was in the works with Todd Phillips directing and co-writing the script with Scott Silver, along with Martin Scorsese possibly producing. Joaquin Phoenix is said to be playing the clown prince of crime himself, and the film is slated for a release date of October 4th 2019. The film is said to be a “exploration of a man disregarded by society that is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.”

The idea of a film like this is very exciting because it opens the door to so many other talented directors out there who may want to tell an original story of their own that isn’t necessarily focused on connecting to an already existing universe. Worlds Of DC is an excellent title because it indicates that there is multiple worlds going on in the DC Universe, and not all of the DC films have to be of the same world and connect with one another. It’s freeing, and overall a very cool idea. In this article, I wanted to talk about another  potential DC film that can possibly get a greenlight with the new title “Worlds Of DC.”

Jason Todd:

A Jason Todd solo film that focuses strictly on the life of Jason Todd, and his view points on Gotham City and how and why he blurs the line of being almost a hero, to a vigilante, to almost a villain.

0e84e238179f00610f822bbbee6e2464363e38fb_hq

For many who aren’t aware of Jason Todd’s origin, Jason at a very young age had a troubling childhood due to his toxic upbringing. His mother Catherine Elizabeth suffered from drug addiction and depression, and his father was a thief who also taught Jason how to be one when he was younger as a way to survive which eventually led him into getting into trouble on his own. Sometime later his father passed away in prison, and his mother also passed away due to an overdose. Sometime after that, Jason runs into the Batman himself, and Bruce decides to adopt and train him to be the new robin as a way of setting him on the right path. Unfortunately that doesn’t last long as Jason begins to disobey Bruce and take on the Joker by himself which leads to his eventual death. Taila Al Ghul, daughter of Ra’s Al Ghul resurrected him using the Lazarus Pit which has the ability to resurrect the dead, but makes whomever uses it more violent. Jason already holding in a lot of anger due to his past, becomes increasingly violent, and becomes a vigilante with a new name Red hood. Jason would go against the morals Bruce taught him, and choose to instead kill his enemies believing Bruce no longer new how to handle crime which persuaded him to take things into his own hands, which would later put a strain on his relationship with Batman.

Allowing new audience members to see why Jason Todd looks at the world the way he does, and why he is willing to cross the line of being strictly a good guy, but instead is forced to or is willing to become a monster if not worse than the monsters he faces in crime, so that he can make his city a better place can be a really interesting plot to see unfold for a solo film.

wallup.net

The idea of a Jason Todd film is a great idea, because it allows people to see that this isn’t just a kid who was picked up by Batman to be a sidekick, but instead he’s a kid that Batman realized had a dark tragic childhood that he has had to endure. A childhood that in a lot of ways is more tragic than bruce’s own.

Allowing people to see something like that can allow them to resonate with Jason Todd before we see him become the cold vigilante Red Hood. What makes great characters is characters that us as individuals can look at and tend to agree with even if that character is maybe written to be a villain. It is stories that can emotionally grab our attention, and make us question our views on things once we walk out the theater.

One of the best things about Jason Todd is that, he is above all else human. And I don’t mean the obvious such as him not having superpowers. He has gone through a lot of tragedy for a young age that is very real for so many people today. Especially children who have had to go through the things he’s gone through. Creating a film based on Jason Todd can allow people to really have an idea of how hard it is for other people who have been where Jason Todd is at, and it can allow the audience to think or question their own self, and their own morality based on the actions they make everyday. Films that can both emotionally and mentally capture an audience are always the best type of films no matter what genre it is in, and have always been films that stick with people for years.

Tone:

DC-Comics_Gallery_20180808__RHATO25_Cover_Colors_Hairsine_5b3e6f682acc62.81782069

The tone of this film can easily be a dark crime thriller that is centrally focused on a young man who has lost everything. No longer has a mentor to guide him, is now angry at the world, and decides to almost become a dictator in order to save the innocent from suffering the same fate he suffered. Being able to show Jason’s cynical view on society, but also being able to show the raw humanity in the character as well, can lead to a powerful performance and a powerful tone that the film might need in order for the audience to resonate with him.

Choreography:

The choreography for this film has to be heavy on action. Jason Todd is a character that is known to be the second robin after Dick Grayson, and was trained by Batman. On top of that, he’s a much more brutal character than Bruce Wayne is, so showing the difference in how the two fight can also give off a feel of how different their personalities are as people. Showing that where Batman never crosses the line of taking a life, he chooses to restrain himself, and Jason no longer caring about restraint, chooses to emotionally add his anger into how he fights which shows a difference between the two.

 

jason-todd-and-robin-dc-comic-art-ui-2048x1152

Those are my thoughts on why I think a Red Hood film would be a good idea, and why I think focusing on a story centered around Jason Todd would be very cool. Having a character that is both a protagonist, and treads the line of possibly becoming an antagonist is very unique and makes for an interesting story if handled by the right team of writers, directors, and actors that care about the project, and care about telling the story of a broken young man, who is very close to walking the path of redemption or walking the path of becoming like his enemies.
