Rick and Morty's "Look Who's Purging Now" is the best version of The Purge we've had. The Purge series has one of the greatest premises in a long time, but too bad it was in the hands of dipshit film makers who have no idea how to execute it properly. Three movies in and I'm still not into these movies. Frank Grillo and Elizabeth Mitchell are both strong leads and the only thing I can think of that I liked in this movie. The acting from everyone else was so awful and way too over the top that after awhile it came off laughable.

In a separate story that soon lines up with her own, deli owner Joe DIxon (Mykelti Williamson...

Heavy-Handed, Purposeful Schlock

'The Purge' series is a niche action/thriller allegory to current political standings in the United States. It's clearly all meant to be anti-capitalism (which I can get behind). This strong viewpoint became much more obvious in the first sequel 'Anarchy', but here that message is hammered home in a way that felt as if the audience is being spoon-fed with a shovel. The whole tone was more liken to a low-budget, grimy, goofy, action flick from the 80's, except it's just not as fun as those specific guilty pleasures. The villains are straight up cartoons, the one-liners are silly, and the action is very shoddy. Those elements usually make up the stereotypical action affair I mentioned. However, they just feel jarring in this movie due to the serious nature of the previous two 'Purge' ...
