    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    The first time I saw Get Out in theaters, the first thing my younger brother said when leaving the theater was "That was lit as fuck." I saw this movie with him, and guess what: Jordan Peele delivers again.

    Consistent with his first two features, here he captures iconic moments, he gets the right performers to give great performances, and he brings complexity to a genre space that is worth dissecting and thinking about. I'm excited to let this one…

    In celebration of Pride Month, I just want to post about the Wachowskis, as I feel their story is important. I don't know any other trans directors, but I'd like to know more. After revisiting this, it is clear to me that we need more diverse directors (race, sexuality, gender, etc.... not that it wasn't clear before). Yes, we have started to see more women and more minorities in the last 4 years. But we need more…
