There's nothing worse than watching a motion picture completely waste a brilliant premise. 2013's The Purge is one such movie. It's built on a marvellous idea that could've made for a mature and thought-provoking examination of contemporary society, but writer-director James DeMonaco has no interest in a quality motion picture, i... read more

Let me begin by saying that The Purge's box office success reveals far more of the bloodthirsty anarchism that lies barely dormant in today's society than establishing it's viability as a well-crafted film. Now this assessment might seem a bit harsh to some, especially if this film was well-received by you but let me state my case and you be the judge.

I'm way too sensitive to these kinds of movies, I cried at the beginning and when the violence started. Mostly because there were people cheering in the audience, and all I could think was how someone could want to hurt let alone kill another human being. And then when I walked out of the theater, there were people saying how cool it was and that it should happen. I feel like a lot of people misse... read more

"Just because it looks good on paper, doesn't mean it's a good idea. Like having a day, on which committing crimes is not against the law."

The future kind of sucks. (354 movies items)

"Reason for the future sucking: The crime rate, is at all time low, and so is unemployment. To keep it low, all crimes, even murder is made legal. Which sounds like a recipe, for disaster. Year it takes place: 2022"

An average movie

“I wasn’t really expecting much from this flick but the concept had some potential so I thought I might as well check it out. Well, first of all, let’s talk about this concept. To be honest, I wasn’t really convinced. Why would the violence stop if you would allow people to do whatever they want for 12 hours? Furthermore, the amount of damages would be huge and, of course, the emotional and psychological impact on the victims and even the perpetrators would be massive as well.  So, the whole thing didn’t make much sense but logic is not something you should expect from your average horror flick. The other disappointing thing was that, even though it is a nationwide event, the whole thing took place only in one house.
