Jordan Peele's new horror flick Us broke records at the box office bringing in $70 million in ticket sales over the weekend. But many moviegoers say the movie was a confusing, befuddled mess.

Us makes history as the biggest box office for a standalone horror film in first weekend sales, according to Showbiz411.

But many moviegoers say Us is not a horror flick or even a psychological thriller. Critics say the movie plot had more holes than Swiss cheese, and Jordan Peele is no Stephen King or Alfred Hitchcock.

If anything, Us proves movies don't have to make sense to be entertaining.

Us is not a sequel to Get Out - Peele's Oscar-winning social-commentary movie about body snatching and white guilt.

Us stars Lupita Nyong'o as Adelaide Wilson and Winston Duke as her wisecracking husband, Gabe Wilson. The Wilsons are an upper middle class family of 4 who are forced to literally fight themselves to survive in a post-apocalyptic world.

Us continues the body snatching theme of Get Out, but without the white guilt.

SPOILER Alert: Don't Read Any Further if You Haven't Seen the Movie!!

Decades ago, the U.S. government created "Tethered" clones of all humans for population control.

But instead of controlling their human counterparts, the Tethered clones mimic the movements of the humans they are symbolically tethered to.

With the experiment a complete failure, the scientists abandoned the clones in underground tunnels, where they were left to fend for themselves by subsisting on raw rabbit meat. Apparently they never learned how to cook.

In 1986, 8-year-old Adelaide and her upper middle class parents vacation in Santa Cruz. While visiting the boardwalk, Adelaide is wearing a Hands Across America t-shirt that later becomes a central theme of the movie.

Hands Across America was a well-meaning, ambitious celebrity-driven campaign to raise funds to end world hunger. Unfortunately, most of the $35 million in proceeds went into the pockets of the organizers.

Adelaide stumbles across a funhouse where she encounters her exact double in the hall of mirrors. Her clone subdues her and drags her into an underground bunker when she chains Adelaide to a bed.

The clone then returns to the surface and assumes Adelaide's life, as well as her soul (don't ask).

30 years later, the clone who assumed Adelaide's life reluctantly returns to Santa Cruz with her Ivy League husband, Gabe Wilson, and their two children, Zora and Jason.

Later that night, a spooky family of four wearing red jumpsuits appear outside the beach house. Adelaide immediately realizes the real Adelaide - now named Red - has managed to escape the underground facility with her family of clones, who happen to be exact copies of Adelaide's husband and children.

The clones break into the house and each family member is confronted by their individual clones. Only Red has the ability to speak - since, technically, she's human.

There are many questions left unanswered by the end of the movie.

  • If Jason's clone was a firestarter, why didn't the clones use fire to cook the rabbits?
  • If the clones stop mimicking their human counterparts once they get above ground, why did Jason's clone mimic him by walking backwards into fire, thus killing himself?
  • If the scientists abandoned the clones decades ago, who created Red's child clones?
  • Why didn't the other clones figure out how to escape the underground facility as easily as Adelaide's kiddie clone did?
  • If the homeless man holding the "Jeremiah 11:11" sign was the first clone to escape 30 years earlier, why didn't he go back for the others?
  • No, Jason isn't a clone. But he did learn that his mother is a clone after he was briefly kidnapped by Red and overheard her talking to Adelaide.

    At the end, Adelaide gives Jason a knowing smile as they leave Santa Cruz. Like his clone, Jason decides to shut his mouth and wear a mask to hide the truth.

    • Trey

      Thats because people were looking for an actual "horror" movie....

      Peele is too deep...but he has found his lane....movie was thought-provoking

    • MJF

      The movie would go over the average person's mind. After reading the plot, this movie should be a series so that it could be broken down. So many unanswered questions!

      FYI: There was no horror in this film.... nothing to be scared about

    • Gamer?? Chick

      Chile I left the theater confused so I had to go home and do some homework, and ran across a movie called Coherence(2014)and noticed a lot of similarities.

    • Torae

      Great acting but extremely overrated...funny how people who enjoyed the movie swear they have some type of higher intellect than the rest of us that didn’t enjoy the movie ? There were so many plot holes. Tried to be artsy with hidden messages but it was still ridiculous.

    • Trace da Ace

      girl.....soo...I watched this movie yesterday called "the veil" with Jessica Alba in it....think it came out like 3-4 years ago....good thriller/semi horror movie.....was about a cult and mess......even though cults give me the heeby jeebies.....that movie was decent.....have you seen it?

    • ShelbyMoore

      @Sandra Did you hear that Kevin is being sued by @ iampmob (allegedly) ....I guess Kevin was allegedly fawking this DUDE too. Kevin even got him to allegedly sing HBD to Wendy on the show.

    • Ni Ni

      Intersting. I dont plan to see the movie...unless it comes on free tv. The trailer didnt hold my interest.

    • Clopretty

      It wasn't a good movie at all! It was all over the place and the story line wasn't told well.

    • jeniefrumdabloc™

      Never heard of it ... is it on any streaming services like Netflix or Prime https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/021952a3e9ea55267e451a4e958a32d0a7bc19ffd59d6737ea6b4a4fdfb0a465.gif ....

      Different sources has the 'Us' movie coming in at Number 1. Either way it set a record & I am so proud of Jordan Peele. I just wish he had cast my favorite new actor in it.

      It was a good movie and I’m not even into those kind of movies.

    • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

      I like him too!

    • MJF

      lmao love it!

    • Jay

      I saw the movie. It will leave you very confused and interested at the same time. Its very weird but makes you open your mind up and think about the meaning behind the movie. It has a lot of FUNNY parts in the movie Lupita did a good job in my opinion. Winston love him but i was very mad at him in this movie. I look forward Peele's next project.

    • leapyearpisces

      I really enjoyed sorry to bother you. It wasn't what I expected....AT ALL...very good movie. The trailer didn't do it justice...I watched it a few months back on Netflix. I turned it on expecting to use it as "white noise" to take a nap, and ended up watching the entire movie.

    • Yardgirl

      Lakeith is the man!! His movie "Sorry to Bother You" was weird but I loved it!!

    • Phillybruh

      If you have to be spoon fed a movie then no this wasn't for you. If your able to critically think it was great. Those folks should stick to Marvel and Tyler Perry movies.

    • Yardgirl

      Jinx! We posted at the same time lol I saw it at the movies and loved it!! Not for everybody though.

    • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

      Yep and I live just fine ..... I stood in full honesty power and truth ...which stripped this particular fraud of everything and it wasn't easy .....

    • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

      Wondering if the people who did not like this movie liked Get Out or felt the same about Get Out as well?

    • leapyearpisces

      LOL! Yes, this is true...not for everybody, but I think if the trailer had been better more people would have watched. The concept was really original though. It was trippy!

    • Phillybruh

      Doubt they got get out either.

    • Yardgirl

      Agree!!

    • jeniefrumdabloc™
    • jeniefrumdabloc™

      Sure will !!!!!

    • MJF

      The Get Out plot was easy to understand. Black man, white girl, family don't like black people, this one had a deeper meaning so it wasn't as easy to follow if you get me. I still liked it honestly, I just had to do more research...

    • MJF

      I been in discussions about it all morning lol

    • free

      i got tired of reading the spoiler....

    • Trace da Ace

      yesss!!!! I love him in Atlanta!!!! This dude right here.....he is gonna do some things!!

    • ShelbyMoore

      Girl, you can't trust anyone. It's so scary...you have to even give you man the side eye now a days when he says he's gonna go hang out with the fellas cause you don't know if they're fawking each other too.

    • leapyearpisces

      Ok, since the spoilers have been spilled, I can say that I hated that voice Lupita had as "Red", we were all in the theatre laughing. It was TURRIBLE. Oan, now I understand why Lupita was so overprotective of the kids because she knew what had happened to Red...that is why she lost it when she couldn't find her son on the beach. Oan Adelaide has NO SOUL, that was the whole point of the scene in the car when she is trying to show her son how to pop his fingers to the beat of the song when she cleary didn't have any rhythm herself- she had no rhythm because she has no soul. The white couple's twins are a nod to the twins in the shining.

    • SouthsideServesHerWell

      Hated this movie, loved the movie Get Out. If you care for shows like the Twilight Zone this movie is for you. Everybody don’t have to like it!

    • WhooCares

      Agreed!

    • leapyearpisces

      Yep I went on spoiler sites this weekend. I am a pretty smart chick, but this one had me scratching my head about somethings. To be honest, like I said this weekend, I recommend for most to wait until it hits streaming or dvd, ESPECIALLY since it will take more than one viewing to get it. I am not going back to watch it in the theatre again, so I will just have to wait until it comes on Netflix or On Demand as well to get the second, and third viewing.

    • MJF

      I know right smh, same here; definitely was scratching my head. I was like I need to watch it again but I'm not spending another $16, already had to smuggle in a small bottle of Jack Daniels. I'll catch it on one of these bootleg sites.

    • MJF

      Yessss, this! The voice for Lupita as Red had me so annoyed and made it unbelievable from that juncture. With the being said, I have to see it again.

    • MsVAllDay

      This movie was soo confusing!!

    • MsVAllDay

      I liked Get Out but this movie was all over the place, the husband was getting on my nerves, they kept splitting up (who would do that), it was just stupid overall.

    • MJF

      To be honest, my first take on the movie was GREATTT THE BLACK PEOPLE DID NOT DIE FIRST! lol

    • SouthsideServesHerWell

      Well I’ll stick with Marvel movies and other shows with almost this concept like Counterpart that come on Starz and The Man in the High Castle that come on Amazon Prime. They are written welll to me and also transitions better! Hated this movie! Refund!

    • Angelique Johnson

      I haven't seen the movie but looking at the comments he is like a Black
      M. Night Shyamalan with a lot of crazy in and out twists. Because i did like Get Out and it was crazy interesting.

    • Dollface

      I went and saw it last night! Um... it was cool. But, the storyline was just a little off. Jordan should've gave more back story of how these people in the red jumpsuits came to be. That needed to be clarified, before the movie could have made sense. At the end, they did give that explanation, but it was so brief and not enough to carry the movie.

      I LOVED LOVED LOVED the play they made with Howard University. That was AWESOME!

      I loved that the black people didn't get killed in the movie as it always happens with other movies in the genre.

      I love the fact that Jordan is still keeping it real to his people despite being married to a white woman.

      I love Lupita of course!

      Overall, I'm not disappointed in going to see the movie. I love Jordan and will support him in any of his projects now and moving forward. He definitely is giving me that Quentin Tarantino kind of vibe and I love his movies.

    • SouthsideServesHerWell

      If you are interested in Twilight Zone type movies this would fit you well! I did not like it.

    • leapyearpisces

      LOLOLOL. My friend smuggled in some moonshine their co-worker makes. LOL. But look why YOUR (LOL) cousins always gotta mess something up. How about we really didn't get to hear the first 15 minutes of the movie because your cousins don't follow directions and one couple set in another couples seat which caused another couple to sit in another couple's seat and then the 3rd couple was like nope aint having it..so they got the movie manager and asst. manager and everybody going back and forth about the seats, folks saying they can't find there ticket and the reason they sat in these seats because somebody sat in theirs...this went on no lie for like 15 minutes....now my row...we had our ish together. We knew how to read and follow directions. LOL. We were so ANNOYED....LOL..little did we know that was going to be the HIGHLIGHT of the movie. LOLOLOLOL.

    • LibgraScales

      I thoroughly enjoyed the movie myself. It's one of those movies that make you think. Everyone did a great job in my opinion.

    • leapyearpisces

      Right and I seriously side-eye men that have women but stay up under their boys. At my age (40's) a married or attached man shouldn't be spending a bunch of time with other men. (Sigh) this world is really going from sugar to shat at a rapid pace these days.

    • Ghost

      Not going to see the movie because I don’t DO horror films! My nerves can’t take them but I’m glad the movie is Doing well at the box office...

    • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

      Two people say it was good, BUT YOU HAVE TO PAY ATTENTION, STARTING FROM THE FIRST SCENE.

    • Patricia

      what explanation was given for the ugly voice? she was swapped as a girl who could speak english, right?? or was it the raw rabbit diet??

    • SayWhatNow?

      https://youtu.be/PmJKVNpTTO4
      I havent seen the movie but I love this!

    • Gloria

      Deep thinkers such as myself appreciate this movie. It was a great suspense with strong social commentary. Actors and director did a good job.

    • Jackie Byrd

      I said the same thing people don't want to think anymore. They want instant drama and blow em up movies. Just sad people can't appreciate story telling anymore

    • Pitty Patty

      Anybody watched RHOA last night?

      Marlo needs her ass kicked. What she did to Eva was brutal and NeNe's passive aggressive ass went right along with it. I want both of them off the show.

    • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

      I enjoyed it! There were some plot holes, but I think they were left in there to get ppls noodle going.

    • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

      "Jordan should've gave more back story of how these people in the red jumpsuits came to be."

      That was explained in the movie.

    • leapyearpisces

      Indeed! That is what I said this weekend. You have to be an active watcher. You have to pay attention. Nobody even got up to go to the bathroom in the movie theatre I was in.

    • MJF

      LMAO truth is, I missed the first 8 minutes trying to get Ben and Jerry's icecream so I understand the back and forth LOL that's so hilarious though!, I would be annoyed myself

    • leapyearpisces

      It was miscategorized as a horror film. Its not a horror film. Its a psychological thriller with some blood splatter here and there. LOL

    • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

      "that was the whole point of the scene in the car when she is trying to show her son how to pop his fingers to the beat of the song when she cleary didn't have any rhythm herself"

      The whole time me and my brother was like, what beat is she on

    • MJF

      Marlo is evil, she's tryna get a peach after 6 years, not sure it will ever happen. It's one thing to be good for TV but she is just messy for no reason

    • Soon2BWife

      This blog write-up proves the main point of the movie. We are our worse enemy. Jordan Peele broke major ground in this movie. It was thought provoking and clearly comes from a brilliant mind. Every actor gave a superb performance, the range of Lupita is Oscar worth. You just have to think and add the puzzle pieces, even if you don’t the movie is entertaining. I am proud of Jordan and he will make us think for years to come thru film.

    • leapyearpisces

      It was never explained IN THE MOVIE, but Lupita did say how / where she got the voice from.
      “The voice for Red was inspired by a condition known as spasmodic dysphonia, and it’s a condition that comes about from trauma,” she tells PEOPLE. “It’s sometimes emotional, sometimes physical, sometimes inexplicable, where your vocal chords involuntarily spasm and create this irregular flow of air. I built off of that and experienced someone with the condition, and I did more research and met up with people with the condition to talk about their personal experiences with it.”

    • leapyearpisces

      I know! We were too! LOL

    • Renee26

      I hate the new assigned seating

    • Renee26

      I'll save my coins... I wanted to see a scary flick. Not interested in leaving the theatre with questions

    • Soon2BWife

      She desribed it as spasmodic dysphonia. It can be brought on from from trauma and neurological conditions. I also wondered if her vocal cords were damaged when her doppelgänger chocked her out in the house of mirrors when she was a child.

    • RespectSelf

      Sandra, I'm sure someone answer the last one. The homeless man didn't escape 30 years earlier. He was the first on the beach after killing his "person" lol

    • Dollface

      It was explained, but not in detail and no visual representation. Yes, towards the end it was explained. But look how much of the movie we went through before it came out. All we saw was a bunch of rabbits in cages. I would've liked to see the science behind how the red suites were created.

    • RespectSelf

      Honestly, I think there were a few things left for folks to question but it didn't take from it being a good movie. I think that it left a lot of folks to talk about and to pull from.

    • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

      Ah gotcha

    • Karen Brady

      Have ya'll seen The Strangers? Awww hell to the naw!!!!

    • MJF

      yup, I agree with you!

    • Keyshia Ray

      Both movies were just ok to me.

    • Keyshia Ray

      I like it makes sure i get a good seat.

    • MJF

      LOL! this made me laugh, I feel you though

    • GuestSTAR

      Yea, that was scary as hell and it was supposedly based on a true story. Part II wasn't as good tho.

    • leapyearpisces

      the main theatre I go to here, doesn't have assigned seating unless its the late night seating or its first week for what they believe is going to be a crowded movie. Chile, we were all reclined all the way back like we were in the bed watching that movie. LOL.

    • Nik

      Yes, the husband wasn't worth a dayum. Soft like baby poo.

    • Mr.LeBrickJames

      A lot of Stephen King movies were psychological thrillers too, but they were often categorized as horror films. I guess that's just what happens with these types of films.

    • Nik

      I am late on Atlanta. I binged watched it this month. One of my favorite scenes was the opener in Season 1 and the one with the invisible car. I hollered so darn bad!!

    • Mr.LeBrickJames

      I didn't see it, and I'm not planning to, but I'm always glad to see black movies do well at the box office.

    • Nik

      Your last sentence...LMAO!

    • Nik

      Yes because I did not catch on that the clone was swapped out for the real girl until the end. I have to watch it again now so that I can appreciate the hints given in the beginning.

    • Nik

      I am going to see it again. The only thing I did not like was the white family because they didn't seem necessary to the plot. It felt like a filler scene when they got the ax.

    • Mona Lisa

      I loved how he used an all black cast as main characters for a horror movie, but sorry the movie wasnt good to me. It left me puzzled because I couldn’t understand the plot.

    • ATL White Guy

      So if my wife & I's clones were bored underground and did the nasty, knocked boots, and played hide the peace pipe, wouldn't their kids be clones of my kids up here above ground?

    • leapyearpisces

      Girl....my daughter has me hooked on international horror films. She is always telling me that the international films are better than US films, and she is right. I love them because those films have a backstory and just not blood and gore and the plots are so intricate. If you have Netflix, some international horror films that I recommend is an indian film called 1920 London, AMAZEBALLS!!! Some more Asian titles, Sabrina, The 3rd. eye (highly recommend), Kuntilanak (HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend, this has everything!!! HORROR and some comedy, but it is still scary as hell), Lucid is good, but its not a horror movie, but you will enjoy it. Very good movie. Some others that are not necessarily international are Mara, Malicious, Don't Knock Twice. Me and my girl twin have movie nights, and we've watched almost every movie in the horror genre. I have more but this will get you started if you haven't seen any of those I listed.
      Oh, and I recommend a movie called Tusk that stars Justin Long, not necessarily a horror, but it is twisted. Johnny Depp is in the movie as an uncredited character. Interesting film.

    • Star

      Kenya is coming back so she can forget about that peach ? I am glad she is coming back bc the current cast is boring. They don’t know how to READ

      good point (if the tether damaged her vocal chords)

      no.. them kids would be other random kids

    • Dun Dilly

      US was TRASH. Y'all need to stop acting like it was good ..or DEEP...NOPE! Hot trash.

    • Dahl

      That’s because you didn’t see her get snatched by the clone til her flashback at the end he the movie, not in the beginning as the above synopsis would indicate...

    • hi-liter

      Hated it.......but I’m happy I supported Jordan Peele.

    • leapyearpisces

      Even though I gave it a 3.5 out of 5, I was ok for me. I didn't really have a problem understanding that much (some things DID go over my head), I just didn't think it was cohesive. I think it could have been "tighter", now with that said, I am super excited and happy that the film is doing so well. What black person wouldn't be? Mr. Peele is making some cinematic history. I hope his success will open the doors for a lot of other talented, gifted black film directors, producers, artists etc. This IS monumental.

      Confusing or not, this is just the beginning for Mr. Peele and I applaud him. He did what M. Night Shymalan (sp?) couldn't - have more than one big hit, lol

    • hi-liter

      NeNe was supposed to turn her mic off when she met Eva and Michael outside. Even though that was fuced up how Marlo talked about Eva, there does seem to be some holes in Eva’s story line. And the new cast member, Tanya....smh....did you see how she almost broke her neck running to kiss NeNe’s arse?

    • Logan Roberts

      I've never personally been a fan of horror flicks, but I love to see us win at any & everything we do periodt.

    • Prettybrowneyes

      Johnny Depp has been in a few films uncredited that are awesome. Thanks for the list. Have to check them out in the "daytime" on Saturday or Sunday ??.

    • Renee26

      Thanks for the suggestions.... Will I have to read subtitles?

    • Renee26

      I like the reclining leather seats... Just not assigned seating... Almost all of ours is assigned now.

    • SouthsideServesHerWell

      Thank you! HOT GARBAGE!

    • PlayerP

      Shucks...everybody keeps saying this...I wanted it to be better than his last...i'mma still support too

    • Dowoop

      Based on just your synopsis I would watch the movie... Seems interesting.

    • teather

      The media is just hating on him for obvious reasons. The money has been made. Good! :)

    • Nik

      A couple of people I know felt from the start she was swapped out. One said she figured that when her family was in therapy and kept saying "She's not our little girl." I thought she was just traumatized.

    • PlayerP

      Good! You are the first person I've heard (real life and online) say this

    • Kay J

      Well said!

    • PlayerP

      This...I love it when I can get the seats I want and don't like it when I can't. Depending on the circumstance I won't go if they don't have any seats I like.
      Can't beat the reclining seats tho...and the arm room...no more sharing arm rests!

    • PlayerP

      You just brought back flash back hysteria...
      Hot. Tears.

    • PlayerP

      Did you see him The Girl In The Spiders Web? Love a Black man on the move

    • PlayerP

      Say word!!!

    • Tlowe89

      I love how Tanya handled it. At first I thought I wouldn’t like her, but as time has gone one I really think she’s a genuine sweet happy person, but she needs to get rid of friends like NeNe, with her hatin ass

    • The Art

      It requires analysis of metaphors almost like work you'd do in college. It's not a straight forward film where the message is blatantly obvious.

    • hi-liter

      You should see it. Experience might be different for you.

    • Cali

      I’ve heard this and now I’m gonna wait to see it, but I love how the “it’s only for DEEP thinkers” debates have started on the internet ??

    • Li-Wright

      It has a 69% Rotten tomatoes rating. I saw it, and actually walked out while the credits were rolling.....for me, if it's a good movie, I sit through the credits. I didn't GET this movie. It seemed like a rip off of Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
      Additionally, if it's a good movie, the audience claps. My audience sat in stone silence.

    • Li-Wright

      I wouldn't say I hated it, I just didn't GET it and I've been watching analytical videos and reading critics. I still don't get it.And I wasn't frightened. I didn't jump one time. I predict it will take a big drop 2nd week. I think Peele is over-rated, like Shamaly(?) and Spike Lee.

    • Li-Wright

      Nobody goes to the movies to be analytical. If I wanted to be analytical I would watch documentaries.

    • Li-Wright

      It's going to drop a good 50% next week after WOM gets out.

    • Dez Nuts

      The movie to me was okay,it freaked me out lol, I'm proud of Jordan Peele tho. It didn't make sense to me but then again I watched it online so the quality was sh*t lol

    • wonderwoman

      Thanks for explaining it. I saw the movie, and still couldn’t understand it.

    • Dun Dilly

      NO! Those were the weakest METAPHORS in the HISTORY of metaphors ! Come on now, we watched enough films to know when some sht is trash....I liked the actors tho.

    • Dun Dilly

      LOL! We done watched ENOUGH movies in our lives to know when some sht is straight GARBAGE!

    • Dun Dilly

      LISTEN...NOT one thing deep in this movie!

    • Irv Patel

      What a pantload

    • dontgetblocked

      I didn't read the article because I haven't seen the movie. I had so much hope for it.

    • PetiteButterScotch

      Sandra can you reach out to Jordan Peele for me pls. He could use a dope writer in his camp. Pull some strings ! Lol

    • PetiteButterScotch

      I’m a “deep” and “critical thinker” and my ass fell asleep shortly after the boat scene with the Dad. It was a bit slow for me, I peeped the easter eggs in the beginning, but I guess my expectations were too high and some of the acting/decision making frustrated the hell outta me. I will watch again bc I like movies that make u think and pay attention.

    • Cali

      It’s 94% critics & 70% audience, I usually side with the audience but what a difference between reviews?

    • noluvlost

      Alright. That's what I'm talking bout speak that truth. Love the way you talk.

    • leapyearpisces

      Yes, but after reading subtitles a few times, it becomes second nature. We have gotten so used to reading subtitles that we put them on the American films. LOL.

    • leapyearpisces

      Really? Hook me up with the title of those fims, please.

    • Li-Wright

      Why?
      Sandra are you monitoring your site?

    • Li-Wright

      OT: Did anyone see 911 last night! Boy was that a good show...the best drama on TV.

    • Tammie Reed

      I saw this at an advanced screening last week and did NOT like it at all! All over the place and the ending was stupid. Sorry not Sorry!

    • Jethro

      Money talks. ???

    • Jethro

      Spike Lee overrated? ? You've gotta be kidding.

    • Look@m3

      Yeah I supported but I walked away feeling like my scary appetite was NOT fulfilled!

    • Panther Charleston

      Honestly, I don't expect to "get" the movie. I rarely get why the hell people are laughing at him and Key. Straight up rarely legitimately funny. Will support though. The subtext, and symbolism of Get Out was awesome. I expect I'll have to do a dig to find gems in this too, which I don't mind sometimes.

    • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

      HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEY!!!
      Stop.
      Delete this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      SPOILER ALERT.
      I had to stop reading. I have not seen it yet.

    • Look@m3

      I watched Captain Marvel right before watching US and I noticed they both put "The Right Stuff" movie right in front of viewers face. I would not have caught that had I not watched both movies back to back. Not sure why that movie was sticking out in both....Ill have to research if that movie had something to do with both US and Captain Marvel.

    • Rayscoty

      I feel asleep. This movie was boring..

    • Look@m3

      lol....dang it wasn't that bad was it?

    • Prettybrowneyes

      The one that I remember off the top of my head is Before Night Falls. He plays several characters, one unrecognizable.

    • leapyearpisces

      In Tusk, it took me a good 5-7 minutes to realize why the face was so familiar.....and even then, I was questioning myself. Tusk is a good sleeper thriller movie. It's NOT for everyone''s taste though.

    • Yoni7

      I'm working my way up to seeing this.
      *leaves post - no spoilers*

    • Primo Levi

      This might just b critics that denounce blk ppl movies cause they know these new blks weak asf & dont stand 4 ? anymore but dont let that stop u from supporting & watching the movie yourself u are ur own critic don't need nobody telling me what this or that movie is i can watch myself 2 see if its trash or good!

    • Ricklaw

      I'm black and this movie sucks he is the black version of m knight shamlaya or however you spell his name he try to have too many cryptic messages n hidden meaning just do s regular movie

      He desperately needs a good writer.

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      That's the same homeless man who held the Jeremiah 11:11 sign when Adelaide was a child.

    • Nik

      Ohhh, I'm so sorry! I thought the write up already spoiled it.

    • Yardgirl

      It was not bad sis. The scares were old school "build up to the scare" so you can see it coming and close your eyes/look away. This is a psychological thriller not a blood/guts/gore horror flick. When I had posted on Wed after seeing the free preview, I said I hope he has a BIG opening weekend because I knew word of mouth was going to be mixed with most people not like it. I give it a B or 3 out of 5 stars lol

    • Yoni7

      Cool. Thanks. I keep hearing mixed reviews. Some liked and some disliked. Like I said before, as long as it wasn't a horror horror flick, I'll see it. Now that I know it's not, I'll give it a go and see for myself whether it was good or bad........to me.

    • Yardgirl

      Welcome! I will say this, it was going along and then went off kilter but still worth watching IMO

    • Guess Who

      OK...so the clone gave birth to the real Jason so they can reproduce? Maybe Winston Duke's big, mighty, black balls had some potent nut in them, heck, IDK.

      Scientist made clones for population control?Was this experiment for in case their was some sort of catastrophe that threatened to wipe out much of America(or the world's population)?

      How did the clone boy get burned?

      Why do Little Peter's...I mean Lupita's natural eyes scare me so? I believe she has one cockeye. I call those renegade eyes.

    • Brianna

      I enjoyed it. I feel like the people who say it was confusing are dim b/c the ending scene with Red and Adelaide makes it very clear what really happened. They literally show Red snatching Adelaide so how do you not get it? I kinda think the son may have been a clone too and that the real son was burned up in the "accident" b/c they said something happened but never went into more detail.
      1. The clones didn't use fire to cook the rabbits b/c they didn't have the sense to or because they weren't "cooking" rabbits above ground so they wouldn't mimic that behavior. That's a stupid question. Like that's what you focus on. Not the things she literally tells us - but the obscure shit like why didnt they cook the rabbits. Okay. . .
      2. I think he walked back into the fire b/c if he was a clone he may have been more primitive in his ways especially based on how the clone acted when him and the boy were in the closet and how the others in the tunnel act. And the clones didnt always mimic the original because Adelaide mimicked Red when she was in the tunnel. Red took ballet and Adelaide told us she "saw God" when the actual clone was dancing. She remembered who she was and came up with her plan. She literally tells us this.
      3. They didn't need the scientists to continue to live down there. Red's kids were created naturally. She fucked the brute and got pregnant and she told us she gave birth herself. She TOLD us.
      4. Adelaide's clone was clearly a special case OR based upon how we know the clones work, her clone was doing what they do IE mimicking life outside - she walked there copying her. We see the look of surprise on the clone's face when she 1st meets Adelaide. Then comes the creepy smile and she chokes her.
      5. And I dont think the man holding the sign escaped. There's nothing that alludes to that. He had a clone too and his clone also had a sign. And if he did escape we can tell by looking at him the his life outside was not as prosperous as Adelaide's. He seemed crazy but not really crazy.

      I watched the movie 1 time and I completely understand what happened. Yall are slow.

    • RespectSelf

      Yea, he didn't escape when she was a child. They showed her pass him with the sign of Jeremiah 11:11. They later showed her clone and how she was walking by other clones to get the Adelaide--- she walked by the homeless man's clone and he had 11:11 on his forehead.

      You see the real homeless man was killed or badly injured when they were pulling up to the beach in the beginning. The son later see's the homeless man's clone with bloody hands (from stabbing the real one earlier) after using the restroom at the beach.
