Sorry. I can only juggle one movie at a time and I've already watched a movie this week so I can't add another or I'll never finish it.

While Us is tonally sharp and full of intriguing characters, Peele’s metaphors may overburden the experience. Unraveling the mystery in Us is part of the joy, but Peele has no intention of being overt about his messaging and symbolism. This almost certainly will leave some audiences reaching the credits with bewilderment or dissatisfaction. Using Get Out as a barometer, it’s likely that Peele has a codex for Us which deciphers all of his meticulous choices. However, this raises its own metaphorical question grounded in Peele’s former genre: if a comedian has to explain the joke, is it still funny?

Us is a movie that is destined to arouse conversation—debates about the scariest moment of the film, favorite character, or just what exactly the filmmaker was trying to say about modern day society. Us is likely to stick with watchers long after the lights go up for a variety of reasons and because this was clearly Peele’s intention, one must deem the movie a true success.

FINAL GRADE: A-

This is scary cause I get confused easily. Hell I didn't even know what Titanic was about after the credits rolled
What's there to get?

Big boat hits iceberg; sinks. Two people should be able to fit on drift wood door.

Just watched. It's fucked up, it had me in a constant state of unease the whole time watching, and I loved it.
