This week, we’re dedicating the majority of the show to reviewing the new horror film Us, the second feature by director Jordan Peele after his 2017 debut Get Out. We’ll be discussing the film entirely spoiler-free for the first half of this review, then after a fairly obvious spoiler warning, we’ll be digging deep into the secrets, meanings, and interpretations we had after our first watch. Plus, we kick off the episode with a brief review of Yardie, the first feature film directed by Idris Elba.

great episode! you guys really nailed what I loved so much about the movie. The scares are great, but the themes run much deeper. I can’t stop thinking about the experience of seeing this movie and seeing it again.
I think the rabbits represent overpopulation.
I would go far enough to say this film is a masterpiece and will be recognized as such within time. Every line of dialogue is intentional. Every visual lends meaning to the overall picture. I can’t get this movie off my mind, and that’s what the best movies do.
I didn’t like this one as much as Get Out, but the CONVERSATION around the movie has been fascinating to read and listen to. It’s so obvious Jordan Peele knows how to make horror films people actually want to see and talk about.
