People are just having their [obnoxious, illegal] fun I imagine. I can bet you there won't be a third installation.

    Despite being better than the first film, The Purge still has an over 50% average score on Rotten Tomatoes. Also, wasn't that event turned out to be a hoax or something? This isn't the first time movies influence the audience's mindset. After JAWS came out in theaters, a large population of sharks decreased by human activity, putting them on the endangered species list. They've been slowly increasing their numbers since protective laws were put in place.

    So I've recently watched this video regarding Disney Villains secretly being the good guys all along, and I've been wondering what are your thoughts on this and movie villains in general actually having good intentions.

    I have no sound, but let me guess. That Ursula bit in the start is fueled by the fact that Ariel is a whiny ***** who wants everything but never expects any consequences, right?

      It's more along the lines of Ursula actually helping her poor unfortunately souls that high-risk rewards is how life works, reflecting real life, whereas Triton opposes this mindset and banished her.

      Anyone else hyped as hell for Babadook? Looks like the most original horror movie in ages.

      I just watched the trailer and I was excited for a second because I thought it was Jessica Lange. :( Oh well, the trailer still looks reaaally good. I always get super hyped about Sundance films and this one doesn't seem like it'll be a disappointment. It feels like one of those that will lack atmosphere (see: Moneyball) but since it's a horror film contrarily it should be filled with tense moments.

      idk I think it looks pretty good, can't judge it for more than it is

      Anyone seen the Simpsons/Family Guy crossover, because:



      This is legitimately horrifying.

      Lacking atmosphere? If the tense nature of the trailer wasn't enough, then you are either super critical or I'm super easy to please.

      I dunno, I find this beautification of obese men quite refreshing, and I truly hope that we see more of this in the future! /s

      I just felt like a modern Family Guy episode just set with Simpson characters. Honestly would've preferred a American Dad crossover as it isn't as mean-spirited as Family Guy. Oh well, at least there's the Simpsons/Futurama crossover coming next month.

      Will likely check out gone girl but I barely enjoyed fight club/social network when I watched them. American Dad is now owned by another channel so it might be hard to do.

        Speaking of the Simpsons/Futurama crossover, wouldn't that contradict that one Simpsons episode My Big Fat Geek Wedding, where Futurama was a show in the Simpson's universe and vice versa in the Futurama universe? It sickens me to see long-running shows making so many retcons/negative continuities that ruin previously established canon from their early episodes.

        I would if it wasn't on Sundance films and instead had a theatrical release, just so the voices of horror fans demanding pure original films can be heard via box office grossing.

        That's about all I can say about it, too. I thought the relationship in the movie was cute, despite being as destructive as could be emotionally with not a lot of GOOD reasoning behind them getting back together in the end/at any given point after they fought. unpredictable ending, though. I mean, who knew she would

        Spoiler:
        stay!!!

        I can't tell if you're being sarcastic re: destructive as could be part. It had it's ups and downs and the downs were problems that a lot of couples face. I thought it was fairly average, especially given the characters' ages, what they wanted to do in life, and whatnot.

        I dunno if that's sarcasm or not either. I could tell she was going to do what she did. It would have made for a better ending if she didn't make that decision, though. I saw it with my friend, and at the end of the movie, she was relentless with her criticism of the choice she made.

        Also, the lead actress is so incredibly beautiful!

        what I meant by that is that when they were upset with each other, it was never really minor arguments, it all gave me the impression "wow they're definitely going to break up now." And when they finally did break up it didn't last very long, though I think their next interaction was Adam showing up at the hospital? idr now

        that was sarcasm, and I do wish she had chosen the opposite. Would have made for a far more impactful ending, especially given the scene with her grandfather.

          Have you read the book? I thought it looked really interesting, and then I read conflicting reviews about the film so I'm not so sure anymore.

          I have not read the book. I've only read good things about the movie and it's Fincher so I figure why not. unfortunately looks like I'm not gonna be able to go this weekend though.

          That's basically the only reason I need to watch it as well, Fincher and Affleck is god tier movie going. Oh and, to reignite the topic I love honest trailers:

          Grand Budapest isn't his best work imo but it's still better then Moonrise Kingdom by a long shot.
