TV & Film
This week we are sharpening our blades, loading up on shotgun shells and going hunting for the one percenters. We’re starting our dive into THE PURGE with the 2013 action / horror title of the same name. Frequent contributors Stephen and Ariel join Mike to talk about the rise of Blumhouse studios, and how The Purge became their second hit franchise after the Paranormal Activity movies. Were these movies secretly written by Nostradamus? What about the political climate we live in now mirrors the world we see in The Purge? What do we think about the choice to center the movie around one percenters rather than the real target of purge events? Also, what was the real life historical tradition that inspired the Purge movies? Plus, what would an actual purge event do to wreck the economy? All this, plus what crimes are your hosts guilty of, and what would be our weapon of choice if we took part in a purge ourselves.
