    It entertained... Wasn’t scary at all.

    The twist at the end was pretty cool.

    i agree with most of the above, but I'm not sure where I stand on if I could say I liked it. A really mixed bag. Ambitious... and thought provoking after. Maybe it's one of those that will grow on me over time. Just didn't floor me like I hoped it would.

    it REALLY wasn't scary at all. Nor was I ever really on the edge of my seat tension-wise. In fact, there were stretches where I was flat out bored. That was the biggest disappointment for me.

    This really was not one of Jordan Peele’s best works. I think he tried to over complicate his plot and that led to quite a bit of boredom throughout the movie.

    At one point, I was basically checking on my phone to see how long the movie is to see if it’s at least nearing the end.

    Wow, boring? Not scary? Surprised to be hearing this. Brilliant, IMO.

    I thought it was kind of lame.

    This is the kind of crap I can't stand. "I loved this movie and if you didn't, you're stupid." Not everybody has to like the same things. You liked it, bully for you. Others didn't and bully for them too. But to snicker and laugh at people who dare have a differing opinion of yours is both elitist and immature. I've seen you post many times about movies you didn't like that a vast amount of people did but I don't say anything because you're entitled to your opinion just like anyone else. Also, to put Peele up there with Craven, Carpenter, and Romero is a little premature. Right now, because of his complete body of work, I put him with Shyamalan before he went off the rails. It's way too early to lump Peele in with the masters.

    That said, I enjoyed it but I'm not gaga over it. Get Out was much better IMO. But I was correct. This was creepy as hell.

    What part of that says anyone who disagrees with it is stupid? What part of that is "snickering and laughing?" Could it be the simple "IMO" at the end? No, wait, that means IN MY OPINION, so it is directly opposite to what you're claiming. Not sure where this is coming from, NJ. I literally posted an opposing OPINION. I did none of what you said. Chill out, crawl back into bed, and get out on the RIGHT side this time.

    literally nothing you said was insulting at all and I'm pretty sure I was the one who surprised you when I called it boring.

    Could be. So long ago I don't rightly recall myself.

    Damn, I'm doing revisions and stuck in hick mode! lol

    For some reason it bugged me that with the vast scope of craziness going on there was no law enforcement presence at any time.
