Us is a 2019 American psychological horror film written and directed by Jordan Peele, starring Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Shahadi Wright Joseph, Evan Alex, Elisabeth Moss, and Tim Heidecker.
US is the follow up to Jordan Peele’s huge success blockbuster film GET OUT. Where does US stack up against GET OUT? Read on! US does a good job at showing how a beauty such as Lupita Nyong’o can also play a role that can totally creep you out. A great score and soundtrack with lots of great camera placement and movement help lend its way to a nice new age psychological thriller.
The film may be a big reach, but if you can roll with the punches and absorb yourself into the content and story line of the film than you can be pleasantly entertained and creeped out all the way. The film requires your attention and there’s a nice bit of comedy sprinkled throughout as well.
Jordan Peele is proving himself as a Director and screen writer and we look forward to his next film.
US comes to Ultra HD Blu-ray 4K with Dolby Vision which helps this colorful movie from the dark scenes, the beach scenes, the outside scenes etc. The film is really all over the place with scenery and with lots of darks and brights the HDR allows for a great deep viewing. US looks amazing on Ultra HD Blu-ray.
US comes to Ultra HD Blu-ray 4K with Dolby Atmos and with a track and score like that of the one from US the Dolby Atmos really gets its chance to shine. From the infamous “I Got 5 On It” track from Luniz and Yukmouth to that of the creepy score. Great audio clarity, and sound effects to boot.
