    Weekend Box Office Feb. 24-26: A Hefty $30.5M Opening for ‘Get Out’ (Timing Is Everything)
    February 26, 2017

    Sometimes it just comes down to timing. Take for example, this weekend’s No.1 film – Universal/Blumhouse’s comedy/horror “Get/Out”. One of very few black horror films (written and directed by Jordan Peele, the shorter half of the former comedy duo “Key & Peele”), “Get Out” tackles racism in a satirical way while also staying true to horror film genre conventions. Although it’s not the first film to do so.

    The Trump Administration’s Not-So-Benign Neglect
    While we’re watching the scandals du jour, the president and his top advisers are dismantling the federal government.

    By Phillip Carter

    This week, President Trump delighted his base with a pledge
    to treat deportations like a “military operation.” There were also
    reports that his administration is urging government officials to cherry-pick intelligence to support their desired policy outcomes and that his White House chief of staff made inappropriate contact with the FBI regarding Trump’s Russia ties. And that’s just the news from the national security sphere.

    The rage felt by the president’s critics is real, and
    understandable, but it also plays into Trump’s broader agenda. His chief strategist Steve Bannon outlined that strategy this week at the
    Conservative Political Action Conference, describing it as nothing less
    than the “deconstruction of the administrative state.” Bannon’s comments this week suggest a darker, more nefarious purpose to the nascent Trump administration’s dysfunction. It may be the case that the Trump team is deliberately failing to staff, manage, and provide resources for federal agencies so as to sabotage and slowly dismantle them. To make matters worse, the Trump team might be leveraging the controversies regarding its disastrous national security moves to obscure and conceal that slow and steady demolition of the bureaucracy.

    VSB Get Out Thread #2:

    10 Pitch-Perfect Examples Of “Yeah…That’s Some White People Shit” In Jordan Peele’s “Get Out”

    Damon Young, 2/25/17

    Couple things:

    1. There will be more extensive reviews and conversations about Get Out next week. In fact, next week might just be Get Out week on VSB. (And yes, there is that much to unpack and deconstruct about this movie. It’s fucking brilliant.)

    2. I saw it last night. If you haven’t seen it yet, A) don’t read this, because this is full of light spoilers, B) make sure you see it in a Black theater, and C)come back and read this after you’ve seen it, because perhaps you’ll be able to add to this list. And, if you’re particularly ambitious and want to conduct a social experiment, D) see it first in
    a Black theater, and then see it again in a mixed-race or predominately
    White theater, and report back your findings.

    Anyway, like many of us, Jordan Peele very obviously has a PhD in
    White people. He’s studied them, he’s learned them, and he perhaps even knows them better than they know themselves.

    And the sublime and ingenious Get Out is a reflection of that knowledge, as it’s rife with dozens of instances most Black people immediately recognize as some “White people shit.” (And, for the record “White people shit” is loosely defined as “shit White people do that we generally just can’t or don’t.“)

    I think Barry Jenkins will win for best director, for Moonlight.

    Stone & Gossling, and La La Land will get their awards

    VSB has two threads about Get Out:

    Get Out And 10 More Films About The Existential Terror Of Existing While Black In America

    Lawrence Ware, 2/24/17

    Jordan Peele’s Get Out takes the existential realities of black men in this country and uses it as the plot for a horror film. A black man going to meet the parents of his white girlfriend is enough to send shivers down one’s spine—especially given the history of violence directed toward black men who were wrongly accused of merely whistling at a white woman. So for Peele to take that concept and develop a horror film is, honestly, ingenious. In fact, scholars of horror films argue that horror films embody the fears of a culture at any given time.

    This got me thinking: what are other films, horror or otherwise, that
    reveal the history of anti-blackness in this country or make plain the
    evil that lies just beneath the surface of contemporary black life?


    5: Candyman

    I couldn’t look in a reflective surface for a week after seeing this film. (Editor’s note: Nigga, I’m a grown-ass man and I still refuse to say Candyman five times in the mirror.) Real talk.

    I would just crawl into my bathroom beneath the view of the
    portal to evil that was my mirror. This horror movie wrestles with the
    legacy of institutional violence visited upon black people. One could do
    an analysis on how it may be a phenomenological meditation on white
    fears of black rage.

    Tom Perez Isn’t As Liberal As Keith Ellison, But He’s Still Pretty Progressive
    By Clare Malone

    The former labor secretary had appeared to be ahead, if only by a slim margin, in the final days before the election, which gave the party time to fret about potentially angry reactions from Sanders voters. Perhaps inevitably, given the power vacuum in the Democratic Party following the presidential election, the race became freighted with deeper meaning and led Sanders to condemn “a failed status-quo approach” embodied by Perez, who served under Obama. Well aware of the raw feelings lingering from a hotly contested presidential primary season, the two front-runners have been publicly adulating of one another and were spotted out to dinner in Washington the week before the election. Saturday’s messages of unity were almost certainly planned ones.

    But Perez’s win deals an undeniable morale blow to the Sanders-supporting wing of the Democratic Party, which feels that the party’s loss in November was something of a referendum on the status quo. Nina Turner, a prominent Sanders-turned-Ellison surrogate, told The Washington Post’s Dave Weigel that if Ellison lost, “the future of the Democratic Party will walk away.”

    The argument from the party’s Sanders wing was that Ellison was the best choice to put forth a message of progressivism that would reinvigorate the party’s base, implying that Perez was something of an establishment centrist. But Perez and Ellison laid out essentially identical visions for the party during the DNC race. Both called for a more decentralized organization that placed greater emphasis on the particular political climates and needs of each state, better candidate recruitment, and well-honed messages of economic populism that would speak to the party’s traditional base and beyond.

    And both Perez and Ellison are well to the left of center on the spectrum of beliefs within the Democratic Party, though Ellison’s views are more deeply left. In fact, he’s more liberal than 90 percent of House Democrats, according to FiveThirtyEight ideological ratings that look at congressional voting records, donors and public statements. Ellison scores a -57 in our ratings (-100 is most liberal; +100 is most conservative). The average Democratic member of the House in the 114th Congress (2015-16) had a congressional record voting score of -40. Perez never served in Congress, but he did make an abbreviated run for attorney general of Maryland and has made public statements on political issues. Using these, we estimated his average score at -45, which is not as liberal as Ellison’s but indicates that he may be further to the left than the average Democratic member of the House.

      Sanders, Nina, and them had better understand that the BASE of the Democratic Party are BLACK WOMEN

      I trust PBO’s judgement with Perez.

    Why Liberals Are Wrong About Trump

    Why are the liberals completely overreacting to Trump’s unique style of governing?
    They’re not. He’s a fucking sociopath. And here’s a recipe for raspberry scones:
