4 Common Reactions to Jordan Peele’s ‘Get Out’

There are at least a thousand videos featuring Supreme Brother Notep Supreme and his unnecessarily complex take down of “Get Out.” What’s worse is that there are just as many videos from Sister All Hail Isis Imma a Notep Queen providing just as many convoluted ass analyses of the film. What I find is that these video synopses are like an actual trainwreck; utterly painful to watch to completion, while slightly entertaining enough not to look away.

Get Out has been that movie. How many times have you seen titles like “15 symbols you didn’t get in ‘Get Out’‘’ or “The most underestimated characters in ‘Get Out’” floating across your Twitter/Facebook timelines?  Everyone on the internet has been discussing all the nuances of this movie and what they actually represent. There have been multiple reactions to this movie but these are 4 of the most prevalent responses to the instant cult classic.

This Movie is Deeper than Deep Deep Deep Deep…

Noteps the YouTube world over are livvvving for this movie. Do a quick YouTube search of “Get Out Meaning.”  There are at least a thousand videos featuring Supreme Brother Notep and his unnecessarily complex review of “Get Out.” What’s worse is that there are just as many videos from Sister All Hail Isis Imma a Notep Queen providing just as convoluted ass analyses of the film. What I find is that these video synopses are like an actual trainwreck; utterly painful to watch through to completion, while slightly entertaining enough not to look away.

The comments sections are rife with entertainment as these Notep Queens and Kings battle to out Notep each other. In true Notepian Fashion, every 236 nonsensical fallacies presented are followed with one or two common sense points. Hey, at least they are consistent.

This Little Movie is Cute or Whatever…

LOL Y’all Thought Your Movie Was “Deep”

Then there are the people who are so “woke” that sometimes you’d just wish they’d take a nap or something. Not a permanent dirt nap. Just a short 40 winks to help them step out of their wokeness long enough to something as simple as discussing a movie with a friend. From this perspective, the film is nothing more than an attempt to tell a story that people of color should already be familiar with.

You know this type. Hell, you probably are this type. The type that marches for causes and has actual degrees from actual HBCUs. They have watched every season of  ‘A different World’at least 10 times. They been woke since woke been woke and they don’t need Jordan Peele to do them any favors. These super woke folks feel like Jordan Peele’s directorial debut missed an opportunity to develop positive Black women narratives or provide any viable solutions for Black bodies that face the perils of white supremacy and systemic racism. Plus. their Bachelor’s degree in Black Studies, Master’s degree in African American studies, and PhD. in African Diaspora Feminist Theory Critique kind of makes it hard for them to enjoy entertainment or anything else for that matter.

This Movie is a Twisted Classic that is Deconstructing a Post-racial Lie…

Is It Really That Deep?

Critiques from this perspective might be from actual film critics or sociologists or worse psychologists.  Some sort of expert in some type of field that is somewhat relevant to the film and they are reaching like a mug.  Their analyses really might be too deep, but you can’t tell them nothing. Pontification is their game; so you can’t tell them nothing.  ‘Get Out’ themed Syllabi and curriculum are being constructed right now as we speak and still, you can’t tell them nothing! ‘Get Out’ is revolutionary and represents a revolutionary shift in the culture. The brightest academic minds have examined how  Rose took approximately 3 bites of one Cheerio and what it all actually means on a both literal and figurative level.  Really? It just ain’t that deep.  

This Movie is Racist As F–

Reverse racism is not an actual systemic thing and no one cares about this reaction. Honestly… Truly…

Jordan Peele said that he was always conscious of two very different audiences when creating and shooting the movie.  Peele wanted the movie to be relatable to Black people and other people of color who were already familiar with how fearful and awkward it can as an “other.”  Peele also wanted to help white people get woke and stay woke.  No one may be able to actually agree on the level of gravitas that ‘Get Out’ did or did not carry. The movie coupled the unlikely genres of Horror and Satire to deconstruct the myth of a “post racial society.” It has stimulated conversation and opened up an opportunity for progressive dialogue (hopefully). I guess at the end of the day that counts for something right?
