What in the world just happened??? Did Moonlight really win???
For those who haven't seen it, Get Out is must-see. Saw it 5 hours ago and my heart is still racing.
With the exception of Daniel Kaluuya, who was also the only bright spot in his episode of Black Mirror, the movie was poorly acted. White people tend to generously appraise movies with safe racial overtones (see the awful and pretentious Crash). Expressing satisfaction for said movies makes (insert white person) feel as though they are on the correct side of the message; resulting in self-appointed distinctions of "progressiveness". It's this kind of exaggerated response to racial matters that Get Out was precisely mocking, which was the best part of the movie.
In short: Don't worry yourself over seeing it in theaters. Simply wait for it to play on HBO in 6 months.
As is the case within the horror and thriller genres, exceptional acting isn't necessarily the key to a successful film. Kaluuya's performance was wonderful to see, but Jordan Peele's script was superb. I'm not sure if you are actively doing so, but comparing the racial message of Get Out to Crash is insulting to the former. Get Out is a quality film when approached from the lens of either a social commentary on race, but a strong film when looked at solely as a dark comedy/horror film.
In short, I respectfully disagree and recommend it for viewing in theaters (and support quality small budget filmmakers).
