So, now I’m all fired up. My friend asked me to recommend a movie to them. The last movie I saw was The Purge (watched it last night). Don’t get me wrong, I know I have become super critical of movies lately; I am very picky, but that is because most movies these days are thunderous shitstorms. Here is why The Purge was a great example of this: (spoilers ahead)
For those of you that do not know the premise of The Purge, read about it yourselves, ain’t nobody got time to explain that shit.
So, this family is loaded. Like, they’re discussing buying a fucking boat while they’re locked up in their mansion while the purge is going on outside. Their shitty pacifist son (who I would like to add has a fucking creepy ass eyeless baby doll as a pal) is all like “mama, papa, why don’t you partake in the killing?” and these pretentious shit parents are all like “because we don’t need to.” So, it’s good enough for everyone else, but not you? pffft.
So, their weak-willed shitty son ends up letting this guy in that’s screaming for help. Because you know, nobody would ever trick anyone during the purge, so they can gain access to a vulnerable, shitty family and their belongings. This guy runs off to hide in their ginormous house and these masked people come up to the door and are all like “We’re shitty ass pretentious pricks like you, so we don’t want to kill you, instead we want to kill the homeless guy that ran into your house, so bring him out or we will kill you.”
At this point, I believe they should have thrown their shitty ass son outside as a trade, since he’s pretty useless anyway and this is all his fault. They finally manage to find the homeless guy after he comes out holding a gun to their whore daughter’s head, which is understandable and logical since this shit family won’t be able to do anything about it anyway. They shoot him and start capturing him, and torturing him (idk why really) and the wife breaks down and is like “LOOK AT WHAT WE HAVE BECOME! WE ARE BETTER THAN THIS” and the whole family gathers around and makes dad look like a dick.
Yeah, so sacrificing people so you can live is dickish, but I mean, they don’t have too many options. So far, this family has the survival instinct of a slutty teen blonde in a slasher film, i.e. scream and cry a lot. They decide to accept their fate anyway and wait for the masked guys to break in, since you know, they’re not willing to sacrifice this guy that means nothing to them and just had a gun to their daughter’s head, and by the way, didn’t even say THANK YOU when the son let him take refuge in their house (there’s no time to save the lives on impolite people).
The masked guys break in, and lucky for the family, they are even more useless. While their club may be based around murdering, they’re apparently super shitty at it. So, the family (mostly the dad) manages to kick everyone’s ass except the one guy stabs him at the end. So, now, since the only non useless family member is down, the rest of the family is cornered, but then DUN DUN DUN the neighbors come in ans save the day!
Only to point their guns at the family, because you know, this family is the richest on the block. So, then homeless guy shows up and captures the neighbors, making for very awkward block parties. I mean, neither party is dead now, but they have to look at each other every day for the next year, knowing that one tried (and failed) to kill the other. The movie ends with the homeless guy walking off. The family doesn’t give him shit. They’re filthy rich, but they can’t even give him $5. Not even a sandwich or a place to stay. They just give an appreciative look to the homeless man and send him on his way after he saved their asses.
And that is where this fucking movie ends.
