If you’ve ever read any of my previous reviews, I write frequently about how I try and keep incredibly low expectations when going into any movie. I managed to avoid even reading anything about Jordan Peele’s new film until a week ago, and even with all of that effort, I was so excited to go see this movie and had very high expectations.
Since this is new, and I don’t want to reveal anything or set further expectations that I will with my rating, this will be brief.
