So I do feel a bit jaded as I get older, but I don't think it's entirely me just being an old fuddy-duddy. I think the films just don't appeal to me for a variety of reasons. The story has to grab me. The actors have to be believable in their parts. The music has to add to the film. And the effects don't have to be totally believable, but they shouldn't look like a video game.
Just my 2 cents.

When I tried to think of GET OUT's progenitors/inspirations, I came up with just a couple but I knew there were others out there, certainly including your spoiler title, but they resolutely refused to come to mind. Just more evidence I suppose that I am the oldest and geezeriest of us all.

I can't answer as to Spoiler #2 because, although I did extra work in that movie, I don't remember what it was all about.

But, I still contend it's a failure of nerve. The whole point of a cautionary tale is to not compromise. As I wrote before, would Orwell's 1984 or the original book/film STEPFORD WIVES be part of the lexicon today if they had happy endings? I strongly say no. Peele took the expedienct way out. He will make more short-term dollars, but, his film will be largely forgotten in 25 or 30 years (and, likely, MUCH sooner)
Fair enough, sir, though I would argue that:

The film has crossed the $100 million mark and has critical acclaim as well.
No magazine has cover-featured it, though RUE MORGUE did have a cover blurb and a two-page story in its latest issue. And while it has been covered online and elsewhere, it hasn't enjoyed the pre-release media push that often accompanies genre films.
If you haven't seen it, do take a look. It's a small film with all kinds of subtexts and nuance. And laughs and scares!
