Get Out (2017)
Movie Review by: Will Whalen

Get Out is brought to us by the comedic mastermind of Jordan Peele and is the story of a black man who is invited to meet his white girlfriend’s family for the weekend and when he gets there, he discovers there could be something more sinister behind the scenes.
I’ve been really excited for this ever since the trailers. With Jordan Peele, who I’m a fan of, doing a new challenge being a horror film, with what looked like a cool original concept, and just the fact that I’m a fan of horror. Well, it’s finally here and let’s talk about it.

Jordan Peele has made something really special here. He’s made a horror film that is not only fun, suspenseful, sometimes scary as hell, but one that tackles real issues and that being of racism. I’m not going to get real political here but I thought that was so cool to do. I can truly say I’ve never seen a horror film quite like this one that has taken the route that this did in being entertaining, suspenseful and even funny throughout, while never breaking away from the issues it’s focusing on. This being his directorial debut, he already seems to have a very promising career ahead of him. The script is something I would also like to praise here. I never quite knew where this film would lead and for the most part, I was always a little surprised.

Now, as far as the acting goes, all the acting here is very well done all around. Especially from our lead, Daniel Kaluuya, who did a fantastic job and did so with an excellent accent. There were some scenes where I was genuinely very impressed with some of his acting and he’s definitely the shining star here. However, someone who stole every scene they were in is Lil Rel Howery. He was hilarious and was definitely the comedic relief of this film. He was hysterical.

What really blew me away here are some of the scenes that were so excellently executed that I got chills at parts. Which, a lot of this had to do with the fantastic direction of these particular scenes. During the opening scene, it was all done in one shot and that’s always a plus in my book.
No spoilers here of course, but the finale of this film… holy shit. I did not see where this was headed but let me just say, that this was one of the most well thought out, excellently executed, and most satisfying endings to a film that I have seen in recent memory. And especially as far as horror films go. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time, jumping and beating my fists up and down like a madman.

With all that said, there are problems with this film for me and there’s a few of them. First, the pacing can sometimes get a little draggy and slow. It tends to do this often but it wasn’t so bad that it was absolutely boring, it just would sometimes fall flat or be really weird. I also felt like it could’ve gone into further detail about a couple of things but I can’t say out of risk of spoiling, but that was overall my biggest problem. This also had quite a few horror cliches and tropes that were just a little cheap. Such as, a piercing sound of music when someone walks into frame or a loud noise that turns out to be nothing. There’s also just a few scares that you could tell were there just to scare, but nonetheless, it wasn’t something I rolled my eyes at.

With a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes with over 100 reviews, do you really need me to tell you that this it’s worth your time? Jordan Peele has set up a fantastic pathway for his career as a director and I’m thrilled to see what he does next. Get Out is an excellent film in a genre that we don’t see many great films from anymore and I’m going to give it…

4 out of 5 stars.

Rating Of Every Raichu Sprite From Main Series Pokemon Games

Pokemon Red/Blue: 

Detailed for what limited pallets the gameboy had back than, slightly minamalist and simplistic in design as all gen 1 Pokemon are.  I respect this elder regardless for his original design. 9/10

Pokemon Yellow:

A PERFECT BOY!!  Look at that expression full of excitement!  I wish we could have seen more of this quality Raichu in this game.  10/10

Pokemon G/S: 

Designers, c’mon now.  This isn’t fair.  You can’t just make me choose between TWO sprites to rate!!  But if I have to choose, than I prefer 1st sprite.  He’s fat, powerful and that expression on his face just screams of smugness.  The second Raichu, however, seems to have more mischievous expression rather than aggression.  Both receive a 7/10.  

 Pokemon R/S/E/FR/LG: 

Not as fat, but I do like his “PUT EM UP, SCRUB” pose. 9/10

Pokemon D/P:

He’s finally relaxed, he’s no longer in constant attack mode!  I’m so proud of him of his comfort around others!  11/10

Pokemon Platinum: 

 I am concerned for his sudden shift in weight gain, but as long as he feels comfortable with his weight however, than so do I.  Now there’s just more of this big boy to hug. 9/10

Pokemon HG/SS: 

What a joyful expression!  An improvement to the previous 2nd gen sprites. I trust him. 10/10. 

Pokemon B/W/B2/W2:

Another quality sprite!  This one takes inspiration from the mid animation frame from 4th gen, I see!  I appreciate the reference.  Also, look at the those LEGS! 9/10

Pokemon X/Y/OR/AS

Not much detail, and I miss his expressions and pose.  He’s happy with his transcendence to 3D but I miss the little details. :( 5/10

Pokemon Sun/Moon:

NOW THAT’S MORE LIKE IT!!  The happiest boy I’ve ever seen.  Unratable, to put a number on his perfection would be a crime.  He’s not quite as chubby however, but he must be light enough to fit on his tail.  Still enjoys a Malasada every now and than.  Finally gets his time in spotlight with his new found psychic powers away from the popularity of Pikachu.  He’s even got his own Z-move!  Good job, little buddy on your rise to stardom!

Hello from a new studyblr in town: inteqrals

I’m Lily and I’m the girl behind the new studyblr inteqrals (don’t be deceived, I actually really hate math). I’m 17 years old and a senior in high school who will be joining MIT’s class of 2021 next fall *squeals of joy*. I’ve been low-key participating in this community for a while now and since then it’s been such a huge inspiration for me in my high school career. Since I’m going into college, I decided to create this studyblr to document my experiences in my dream college, share and learn more study techniques, and also meet people who feel the same way as I do about learning. 

I will be double majoring in Chemistry and Bioengineering and I could not be more excited and terrified at the same time. 

Just a few things about me:

My favorite subjects are chemistry and biology, computer science, and engineering

I’m a huge nerd who loves Harry Potter, Star Wars, and Tolkien way too much and I’m a sucker for classics like David Copperfield by Charles Dickens

Studyblr inspirations (thank you so much for all of the motivation the past years): @studydiaryofamedstudent @studyign @study-well @studyrelief @thearialligraphyproject @hermionegoals @journalsanctuary @studykouffee @eintsein @dotgrids @angelastudies @biochemsitry @peachsstudy @studenting @studylustre @cmpsbls @emmastudies @studiyng @intellectus @studykiwi @studyplants @academla @ambitiousandcaffeinated @milkteastudies @universi-tea @boardingschoolblr

That’s it! So come on by and we can obsess over nerdy stuff (i mean a rogue one discussion has to come sooner or later), cute stationary, or anything. I also follow back studyblrs so just reblog/like this post and i’ll follow back right away! XD

Take 30 minutes to watch President Barack Obama surprise Vice President Joe Biden with the Presidential Medal of Freedom with distinction, a moment every American should see, and every American should treasure. When you think of ‘public service,’ few names may come to mind, but Biden should, because few people embody the spirit of public service like Joe and his family. Almost 50 years of his life have been dedicated to the people of this country and when history looks back at the most influential and genuine people, Joe will grace the top of the list. Despite his career politician status, he never put family on the backburner, showing us all how to live. And even as his time as Vice President comes to a close, Joe continues to look to the bright future of America. In the coming years, there will undoubtedly be more from our beloved Joe Biden, and as a Philadelphian, I could not be more excited at the prospect of Joe returning to the region for work. Thank you Mr. Vice President for your tireless work and endless sacrifice for this country. No one deserves this medal more than you.


Skip to 13:50 to see the moment Joe Biden is surprised with the Medal of Freedom.
