Hmmmm...is Peele more than he seems? Since he is from hollywood you would think he is a left wing hack.....but? 'Us' Review: Intense Warning About the Horrors of Socialism | Breitbart And this is a normal family. A loving family. This isn’t Hollywood’s perverted view of family. The kids listen to the parents. The parents have earned that moral authority. Mom and dad are in love. There’s no dysfunction, no hidden underbelly. Best of all, the fact that the Wilsons are black has nothing to do with anything. Us embraces the ideal of e pluribus unum, most especially through the Wilsons’ friendship with the Tylers, who just happen to be white. Race is never an issue. Never brought up. You wouldn’t think a Hollywood Oscar-winner like Peele could even grasp the concept that this is how most Americans live. You see, unlike the media, hysterical left-wing politicians, and too much of Hollywood, out here in the real world we’re not obsessed with skin color. We hardly think about; and just like the Wilsons and the Tylers, we have achieved the color blindness our twisted elites have not. However… This is a horror movie, which means something’s going to come along to destroy all this harmony, and wouldn’t you know, it’s… us. But it’s really not us, it is the worst of us — the greedy, envious, grasping side of us, that part of us that wants something for nothing, that wants what everyone else worked for, that believes we are entitled to it. And we will take it through violence and murder, because that’s our idea of justice. The Wilson’s are terrorized by their own doppelgangers: crude, malevolent, angry, bitter doubles who are, without question, Peele’s stand-ins for socialists. He’s even a bit on-the-nose by dressing them all in … red. From out of nowhere they show up to organize, terrorize, menace, bully, and destroy what everyone else has, what everyone else worked for — and I’m talking about good and decent people who have done nothing to deserve this. You see, the Wilsons are the movie’s real us — the most average of Americans, guilty of nothing more than live and let live. -------- Smaller themes abound. Let’s just say the gift of children and the instinct to protect them will help to keep you alive. And children must learn how to fight for themselves. The battle against the evils of socialism is not one they can shy away from. This is also a cautionary tale about the importance of a owning a gun and learning how to use it. The Wilsons do not own one and you cannot help but think how much different things would have gone had they done the right thing. The NRA should sponsor some screenings. ---- Jordan Peele is a helluva director. The staging, pacing, and editing of the middle forty minutes, which are about as perfect as a horror movie can get, are nothing short of brilliant. Us also has a terrific score and song selection. What’s more, there are a ton of laughs that in no way feel out of place. The performances are top notch, most especially the gorgeous Lupita Nyong’o, who takes full advantage of a dual role any actor would kill for. As her son and daughter, Evan Alex and Shahadi Wright Joseph also stand out.
