      That's not true. Get Out was a very good horror film but it was hardly "...
      one of the highest rated movies ever."

      I think a comment by one of the people on the Oscar committee (anonymous) sums it up nicely:

      ...
      was that instead of focusing on the fact that this was an entertaining little horror movie that made quite a bit of money, they started trying to suggest it had deeper meaning than it does, and, as far as I'm concerned, they played the race card, and that really turned me off.

      I personally haven't seen it as I'm not into horror movies.

        I noticed Fox News was crawling all over it. I wished they hadn't. I saw their first blurb and knew within two internet searches that the film wasn't glorifying murdering conservatives. If I could sort it out that fast, there's no reason they couldn't. I think the politics in the movie are sophomoric but hardly partisan. And the thought of some viewers who actually would get off on seeing Trump voters get shot are then stuck watching as the protagonists start picking off their team would be amusing.

        It is amusing satire on a number of levels. The notion that you could FIND a trust fund dilletante capable of bowhunting so much as a lame elephant by itself makes the movie premise kind of funny and hardly an "oh my gosh this could happen for real" kind of horror. This ain't your grandpappy's Downton Abbey. Millennial money doesn't hunt. If rich leftists tried it for real they'd be griping about not having 4g service within 30 minutes, covered in poison ivy within two hours, and probably need a rescue without ever sighting their quarry.

            It is one of the highest rated movies ever according to rotten tomato.

            Anyway, I'm starting to notice a trend here of you forming strong opinions on things you know nothing about. Typical of all Trump supporters in general. In one sentence you're arguing that it was a good movie, but not the best. Then you later admit to never seeing it. You have not had a clue as to what you're talking about since page 1 of this thread.

              The movie hasn't been released, meaning most if not all of the Rotten Tomato crowd calling it good are doing the exact same thing.

                So one site rates it highly. That is hardly a ringing endorsement of it.

                    I could dive deeper, but there's no point in arguing over a movie you don't know anything about.

                          Whoops. Thought the comment was on The Hunt. That's what I get for posting late.

                            It is if you understand how Rotten Tomatoes works. Rotten Tomatoes doesn't rate movies itself. It's an aggregate site. It collects hundreds of reviews from a variety of different sources to average a score for the reviewed movies. So in the case of Get Out they looked at 354 published reviews which gave it a 98% Fresh Score. Reviews by individuals on the site were also overwhelmingly postive.

                            https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/get_out#contentReviews

                            How they determine the score:.

                            Get Out was very highly rated and reviewed when it came out. IMO rightly so.

                              Thank you for applying critical thinking and researching the story further.
                              If I could sort it out that fast, there's no reason they couldn't.
                              Fox isn't in the business of finding the truth, they're in the business of spreading conspiracy theories and disinformation. Fox and republican elitists have learned they can get people to support corporate polices by scaring them and lying to them.
                              Everything RW is geared toward paranoia, fear, conspiracy theory, disinformation and scaring the crap out of the audience......all for a vote.

                                After the Captain Marvel fiasco (which they intentionally deleted low-rating comments in favor of keeping higher-rating ones), I've had validation on ignoring anything that comes from Rotten Tomatoes.
