The First Purge is an Anti-Trump Campaign Ad for Horror Fans

Instead of a trilogy, The Purge is now officially a franchise. Surpassing the trilogy milestone, Blumhouse Productions has decided to give us an origin to the dangerous and violent phenomenon we have become a part of since 2013 when the first film was released. This franchise continues to grow with each installment feeling more closer and closer to the real thing and stepping out of the horror fantastical world it has created. Advertised and promoted as an anti-Trump film from the poster of his orange/red hat “making America great again” to a lot of the themes in the films, using the purge as a device to control the population and also thin the numbers to the low income and ethnic population in the U.S. Now comes the question, do we like that these movies are speaking more towards social and economic commentary or would we like to keep it as a fictional tale showcasing a world that is nowhere near our future for entertainment value?

MoviegeekRob’s Reviews: Ocean’s Eight & Tag

I saw two new comedies over the past weekend and both films happened to give the opposite effect that I was expecting when going in. While one was underwhelming considering the cast is one of the best ensembles I have seen in a while, the other I think will be one of underrated movies of 2018. Can you guess which is which? People watch and view movies for their own reasons and what they want to pull from it. I do my best to go into each film with an open mind and remember that while my opinion is being presented for everyone to see doesn’t make it the only opinion nor do I represent the opinion of others. This review will be a true testament to how I review movies from an entertainment value perspective.

Ep. 10: Solo: A Star Wars Story

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far, away…
*cue Star Wars Theme

Chapter X: 
The podcast, Movie Geek & Proud, have just been welcomed by the podcast community and family. As they settle in with their new podcaster brothern, a new episode was recorded. A review of Solo: A Star Wars Story. Through the franchise a civilization known as The Fanboys would carry out the fandom of Star Wars. Soon a group of movie goers emerged. Those who didn’t believe in the hype and see these films as just some sci fi adventures like all others: The Non-believers. A summit meeting has commenced and two from The Fanboys and Non-believers have come together to review this film and give their thoughts on the origins of one of the beloved characters: Han Solo. After the review, a battle struck causing the factions to go head-head in choosing a team of Movie Sidekicks they deem worthy to join in on their quest.

Now it is up to the rest of the galaxy to put a cease to this battle once and for all and vote a winner so that there may be peace…

Incredibles 2 Doesn’t Fix What Ain’t Broke

14 yrs. of anticipation, curiosity, hope, that director Brad Bird would give us another movie featuring one of the best superhero families ever: The Incredible family. Ever since the first film, The Incredibles¸ we were introduced to a new kind of superhero as well as a new kind of Pixar film. The Incredibles back in 2004 was the first Pixar movies to feature humans as the main stars of the film. Like most of the Pixar films, we fell in love with the unique and creative characters of Robert Parr/Mr. Incredible, Helen Parr/Elastigirl, Violet Parr, Dashiell (Dash) Parr, and Jack – Jack. Who can forget the best designer with no patience for nonsense, Edna Mode (voice by Brad Bird). Here we are, the sequel has arrived and was it worth the 14 yrs. wait?
