Get Out (2017/Universal Blu-ray w/DVD)



Picture: B+/B- Sound: B+/B- Extras: B Film: B+



Jordan Peele (known for his hit Comedy Central series Key and Peele and 2016's Keanu) makes a departure from comedy and into the horror genre in possibly the best reviewed film of early 2017, Get Out. The film is a superb social commentary on racism as it exists in America in modern day. while throwing in a Stepford Wives (1975)/Twilight Zone-esque twist to the story. Also really well shot and acted, the hit is a rare example of a film that lives up to the hype.


Get Out stars Allison Williams (HBO's Girls), Bradley Whitford (Cabin in the Woods), Catherine Keener (Being John Malkovich), and Daniel Kaluuya (Sicario).


Chris (Kaluuya) and his girlfriend Rose (Williams) have a pretty serious relationship going on and she invites him to meet her family at their secluded home upstate. On the way, they run into a deer, which should have been a warning sign... but when Chris gets there, he finds her family quite accommodating, ultimately starts to feel racial tension as he sees that the family has black servants working for them (who all seem to be in a sort of trance) and some pretty wild ideologies. When he gets to know Missy and Dean (Whitford and Keener), Chris soon feels like there is something bizarre going on within this family that is far beyond anything that it appears to be.


Presented in 1080p high definition with a widescreen aspect ratio of 2.40:1 and a lossless English DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 track, the film looks and sounds great on Blu-ray disc, but could be even more stunning in 4K. Character detail is on point and the soundtrack is creepy and hits the right notes. Also included is a standard edition DVD of the film with an anamorphic widescreen aspect ratio of 2.40:1 and a lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 track.


A digital UV copy is also included.
