    For sure - Peele said in an interview that he packed in a lot more coded stuff in Us than there was in Get Out. He didn't specifically say race-coded but you know that'll be in there. There probably will be stuff that only horror-movie buffs get too.



    I got the feeling that the main message of the film is going to be something pretty general - socioeconomics, class, fear of the other, something like that. However, by even making a movie where the well-off family at the center of it is black is already sending subliminals, and I'm sure there's going to be more specifically weighty racial commentary in there too.

    I only made the comparison because Nolan is pretty much the only director who puts asses in seats off of his name alone while trying to push the envelope intellectually/technically. Dude made half a billy off of Dunkirk:mjlol:Tarantino still kind of has that pull. Spielberg is Spielberg. Scorsese seems really dependent on his cast lately. Villeneuve has the talent to be the best director in the business but doesn't have the blockbuster power. Who's left? Cuarón? Aronofsky? del Toro? Peele is a fresh face with fresh ideas. You add the projects he's connected with on the TV side and all he has to do is not fumble at the one yard line.

    The movie experience is what made me like the movie the most. Crowd was very much into it.
