    So basically Get Out is this year’s GHOSTBUSTERS 2016………….

    I remember seeing the trailer for this a while back and thought it was hilarious… I really wasn’t sure if it was a comedy, a horror or both. I’ll have to see it for myself some time…

    - There was a signature here... it's gone now...

    It’s just that what I find suspicious about all this apparent critical acclaim of this movie is the fact that it has a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes…. I’m not kidding…

    All these critics seem to be praising the movie as “ground breaking”, “subverting horror convections” (which I find funny considering that this looks like typical Jason Blum Jump-scare fest schlock), with special praise for “examining racism”. I just can’t help but suspect that this is another Ghostbuster 2016 situation where the praise is directed towards “what it presents” rather than its merit. Not to mention we all remember all the praise The Blair Witch reboot got (some called it “ground breaking”) before it came out, in which a flood of negative reviews came afterwards.

    If what I think of the praise the movie is getting ends up being true then I might start ignoring Rotten Tomatoes from now on.
