This week on the show, Shawn and I were on vacation (which means our kids probably did things that prevented us from being prepared for Mr. Konopka’s class of extreme movie watching pain), but Jeff Konopka (@Jeff_FOTD) is joined by special guest Kirk Haviland (of Movie Junkie TO, among other sites) to dig deep into James DeMonaco’s hit thriller, The Purge! Now this movie has been getting quite a bit of fanboy-like love out there. I’m sure there are number of people asking how the soundtrack is (not the score… the SOUNDTRACK) and of course the big question on everybody’s mind… Do they survive the friggin’ night? Well I, James Terror, cannot speak to any of this save from what I’ve heard from my good friends Kirk and Jeff. I will say that I plan on seeing the film, that I would have seen the picture if World War Z, and This is the End hadn’t been slated for podcasts. I would also say that I would have seen this movie if I wasn’t terrified of home invasion stories since having a kid. Seriously can barely watch the damn things even when forced to review them. Read that pussy marauder.
Why is there no “What We’ve Been Watching” segment this week? Is the movie just a Strangers knock-off? Is Ethan Hawke swimming in moneybags these days? More importantly, is the movie worth your time? All of these burning questions will be answered…
I’ve thought about this long and hard. I’m pretty sure the only thing you can do before seeing The Purge is binge. Drink. Eat. Whatever. Makes sense right? That’s probably the name of the goddamn sequel. THE BINGE. Make a drinking game up, grab some S’mores and by all means necessary let us know what you’re thinking about this podcast and this movie.
