Film Review: ‘The Purge: Election Year’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 29th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

the-purge-3-trailer-still

Are you ready to cleanse your sins away and ‘Purge’ once again? Well, the movie industry certainly is with ‘The Purge: Election Year‘. Funny, it is an election year in the real world and with Donald Trump on the card, an actual ‘Purge’ might just happen. You might laugh at that notion and I do too, but it’s more plausible than ever before. Writer/director of all ‘The Purge‘ movies, James DeMonaco, actually got his start as the writer of the Robin Williams‘ film ‘JACK‘, which if you look at it closely, they are all practically the same movie. Of course, I’m kidding.

‘The Purge 3’ In Development Stage!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Oct 6th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

11173717_800

 

Universal, Blumhouse and Platinum Dunes are beginning development on a third visit to a world where ‘The Purge‘ is a yearly event. If you’ve been in a cave the last few years, I’ll give you the high points. March 21 at 7pm until March 22 at 7am, is the annual purge. This is 12 hours where every crime imaginable is legal, police do not respond and emergency help of any kind is only what your neighbor is willing to do for you. Most families lock themselves away from the evil that lurks just outside the door. Yes, this is the movie franchise that began scaring communities when moronic teenagers began promoting the event for Louisville, KY in what turned out to be a hoax.

Film Review: ‘The Purge 2: Anarchy’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 17th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

purge

A year later, we are out on the scary and violent streets rather than in the confines of a big home with the sequel to last year’s big box office hit ‘The Purge‘ with ‘The Purge: Anarchy‘. Writer/Director James DeMonaco concocted a brilliant and chaotic story where we are set in the very near future where the U.S. constitution is done away with and a few select people were put in charge and called The Founding Fathers. These Founding Fathers re-wrote a new constitution that added in a new law where once a year for a twelve hour period, everyone was entitled to “Purge”, where all forms of crime were legal, including rape and murder.

Film Review: ‘The First Purge’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 4th, 2018

We’ve arrived at the 4th installment of The Purge, which is a prequel to the previous three films, simply titled The First Purge. The creator of this film franchise – James DeMonaco has left the director’s chair for the first time in this franchise and given the reigns to Fruitvale Station associate producer Gerard McMurray. While DeMonaco is still listed as the writer and producer of this new film, The First Purge doesn’t do really anything new, nor does it enhance anything that we haven’t already seen before in the previous films. Each Purge film has a different overall feel to it. The first movie can be described as a home invasion film, while the 2nd Purge took to the streets in a very Escape from New York kind of way, while the third film was its mostly a violent political thriller at best.

Ready or Not – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 21st, 2019

“‘Ready or Not’ is a bloody wonderful movie for all the right reasons.”

It’s a strange world we live in where Fox News and the horrible jackass in the White House conjure up bogus debates that ultimately led to the cancellation of a movie called ‘The Hunt‘, which followed a group of people who hunt and kill someone else with different political views. Now, its own movie studio (Fox Searchlight) has released ‘Ready or Not‘, which is practically the same story, but is more subtle in its satire of the political and class system in America. This incredible darkly comic film is part ‘The Purge‘ and part ‘Jumanji‘ in a twisted way where an uber-wealthy family looks to kill people who join their clan. It’s a hell of a fun ride that mixes great humor and bloody violence into a short run-time from the filmmaking club Radio Silence (Matt Bettinelli-Olphin and Tyler Gillett).

Hollywood is Remaking ‘The Raid: Redemption’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 15th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

00602-m2ts_snapshot_00-49-27_2012-08-15_08-45-01_original

One of the best action films of all time is getting remade. That’s right, Gareth Evans‘ ‘The Raid: Redemption‘ from 2011 is getting remade from XYZ Films, who surprisingly made the original film. Before we yell “Hell-Fire and Damn” on everything, let’s take a look at what we know. Gareth Evans himself is backing and producing this remake with Joe Carnahan (The Grey) directing  Frank Grillo (The Purge 2) in the lead role. I’m all for this remake now. Carnahan also made ‘Smokin’ Aces‘, the remake of ‘The A-Team‘, and ‘Narc‘, which is to say the least is an impressive resume.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Insidious-4-Movie

Blumhouse is one of my favorite names when it comes to awesome scary movies and that name just popped up on the radar with another film sure to scare even the most stalwart film-goer. This company doesn’t just produce one-off horror flicks, they develop franchises and give us sequels that are every bit as awesome as the originals, some of these are ‘The Purge‘, ‘Ouija‘, ‘Paranormal Activity‘ and the ‘Insidious‘ powerhouse. The latter among these has got another installment headed our way with ‘Insidious: Chapter 4‘.
