Best Picture Nominee:
I've seen "Get Out" twice now. Once with a group of friends way after it released on Blu-Ray and the second time in theaters during the Oscars 2017 Best Picture Festival and both times I have loved this film.
"Get Out" strikes this perfect balance of being a comedy and a horror film, while simultaneously being social commentary about racism.
The political message works really well here, but it's not the only thing going for it, which can often times be the case for films that push a strong political agenda.
The entire cast did so well, that I was scared for Chris and genuinely creeped out by the entire Armitage family. The setup is near perfect, building up the appropriate amount of suspense that we needed for the later half of the film, with the ending keeping me on the edge of my seat literally until the very last scene.
I'm glad that "Get Out" won Best Screenplay and if it had won Best Picture, I wouldn't have complained at all. If you haven't seen it yet, go give it a watch!

Best Picture Nominee:
Let me just say straight up, I'm not a fan of horror but this film directed and written by Jordan Peele is very original in the storyline and themes within the movie. It is really a fresh take on the genre weaving a social message without any heavy handedness. Without giving away the story line, the movie is about an African American man with a white girl friend going home with her to visit her white parents. He has the trepidation any African American would face in this situation. Is the family racist? If so, how racist? Will there be lots of awkward conversations about African Americans? The tension builds in the film as the main character played by Daniel Kaluuya finds things getting stranger and stranger. Daniel Kaluuya gives an excellent performance playing the lead. He provides a wonderful low key performance with great deft and subtlety.
This film really deserves all the accolades.
Once in a while a movie comes along that takes a genre by the scruff of the neck and vigorously shakes it into a new shape.
This is so with Get Out, a horror movie (so the marketing blurb says) that lobs a few horror tropes into a lean and mean 104 minute thriller. But it is really a social observation on the insidiousness of racism. It comes out the other end as a unique movie offering.
It borrows from Pacific Heights, Psycho, Michael Haneke's astonishing Party Games and sub-horror-porn like Saw without ever being any of them.
Without resorting to spoilers its one gigantic twist from start to finish that realises the fears of a young black American guy on a trip to the country to meet his wealthy WASP girlfriend's family on a celebration weekend. Every sentence uttered by every character becomes a retrospective clue as to what the outcome will be.
Given it's described as a 'horror' you can expect a deal of nasty stuff in a climactic ending. What director and screenwriter Jordan Peele (amazingly a debut outing) most cleverly does is apply Hitchcockian tension so that 89 minutes of tension are realised in a mere 15 minutes of terror in such a way that the nasty bits don't (as so often is the case) outstay their welcome.
Superb performances all round from the five principal actors, but especially boyfriend and girlfriend Daniel Kaluuya and Allison Williams (Girls).
It's should be no surprise that this has been both BAFTA and Golden Globes nominated, but it is because this genre rarely reaches this level of critical acclaim.
It'll get Oscar nods too.
