On this written review we cover the Oscar winner Jordan Peele’s Get Out. This film stars Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Catherine Keener and Marcus Henderson. Movie reviews and disc quality reviews are color coded for your convenience, BillChete in orange and Lady Phantom in blue respectively.
IMDb Storyline: Chris and his girlfriend Rose go upstate to visit her parents for the weekend. At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he never could have imagined.
BillChete and Lady Phantom along with Jeff Hammer and the vampire man himself Boss Butcher reviewed, debated and had vastly different viewpoints on the movie back on HORROR On The Go released March 17, 2017. Listen to the hour long AUDIO to get all the ins-and-outs of Get Out. A quick side note the Phantom did raise her initial rating up one point.
4K Disc Quality:
This is my third watch on Get Out and this time it felt like I was watching it for the first time because the 4K Blu-ray Disc’s video quality is outstanding. For a non-action, drama-like, Twilight Zone-esque feel you can’t ask for nothing more in the video department. Viciously rich and clear picture, and be on the lookout for the blues and yellows in this title, as they are in your face bold and look great. The audio front is a different story and it’s a DTS X track too. It blares at times but is faulty with the timing of the jump scenes. It actually was not a good score overall cause it didn’t match for the most part what was happening on screen. So we get a little bit of a mixed bag here but the video detail is splendid.
This disc is high quality. It’s clean and crisp, and it looks great. Especially the scenes with candlelight, they look warm and beautiful. The colors are vivid and popping. The scenes in “the sinking space” look great, although I don’t think they looked as good as they could’ve. That being said, I don’t think the HDR was used to the fullest. There’s a scene with fire that looks plain bad, although that’s no fault of the 4K, but of the movie itself. The audio was good and enveloping, but nothing to be pointed out. In general this is a great disc, and if you like the movie, it’s worthy of the upgrade.
