Movie tip


I realize I’m going against the grain by saying this, but I think “Us” is overrated. It’s not just that “Us” doesn’t live up to Jordan Peele’s previous film, the close-to-perfection “Get Out,” which would be tough anyway. It’s also that it isn’t particularly scary or inventive as a horror flick. Winston Duke (as the dad of a family chased by eerie replicas of themselves) and Elisabeth Moss (as a sardonic, boozy family friend), though, do bring a vibrant energy to things, along with some genuine jolts and a mordantly comic flair. The rest of it? Meh. You can see the ending twist coming a mile away. Random thought: Between this film and “The Favourite,” bunny wranglers have a booming business in Hollywood.
