Absolutely AWFUL movie. The movie is I guess supposed to be scary, but honestly we were laughing more than anything. The story line and writing was HORRIBLE. Absolutely horrible. What the people said, what they did was so stupid and ridiculous. The movie is about a home invasion and everyone is trying to kill the family and it's really really funny. If they were going for a comedy then I think they nailed it. The ending scene is by far the stupidest most ridiculous scene I have ever seen in a movie. I don't want to spoil it but I will anyway so stop reading if you don't want to know. At the end after the neighbors try to kill the family, the mother forces everyone to sit at the table and says that no more violence will happen tonight and that she will let the neighbors go after the purge is over. So the ending scene is literally them sitting at a table waiting for the purge to end so they can go home. Like the dad already got killed and the mom is just letting the neighbors chill in her kitchen. The movie was so stupid. The writing was just so bad. I can't even explain to you how terrible this movie is. The acting wasn't so bad, but the writing was just the worst I have ever come across. Like I suck at writing but I could've come up with a better script than the shit they were working with in this movie. Avoid this movie, unless you want to see a really bad movie and need something to laugh at. It's a really funny comedy, but awful awful horror movie or whatever the hell kind of movie they were trying to make.
It was a pretty interesting documentary about what it really is like to be a working actor in hollywood. I thought the interviews with the actors were very insightful and the overall content of the documentary was really intriguing. However the way the documentary was put together as in the editing and quality of the images was pretty bad. Sometimes the shots were out of focus and the audio was poor. The interviews themselves were pretty nice though. Just the camera work was mediocre. I wish they had actually gotten some diversity in the actors for their interviews. Literally all the actors except 1 were male, white and between the ages of 35-60. It would've been nice to see some women because I'm sure they have just as much if not more trouble finding jobs. Especially with the way film exploits women, I really would've liked to hear about some of those stories. I bet they could've found some diverse actors for the group. I mean it sounds like a bunch of actors are looking for jobs, it couldn't have been that hard to find a couple people from different ethnic backgrounds to discuss their experiences working in hollywood. But anyway, I found the film pretty interesting. I know I want to work in the industry one day, not as an actor, but still it kind of sucks to hear how complicated it is to work in hollywood. It makes me feel bad for all the actors out there trying to find work. :(
I thought it was pretty good. It was shot very creatively, they were nice to watch. It really shows the reality of marriage and why 50% of them end in divorce. The film is edited just like 500 Days of Summer, but I think 500 Days did it better. When the movie was flashing back and forth I felt like I was missing some things. I dont quite understand why Gosling turned into such a douchebag. In the beginning he was a little obnoxious, but kind of adorable, and at the end he was like an alcoholic jackass. Not sure how that happened and I wish I had seen the transition from obnoxious cutie to raging drunk.
I thought all of the performances were great, but I didnt really like the characters. I liked Dean as a young boy, but not when he was older. I didnt like the wife at all. She seemed like a slutty mcbitcherson. 25 sexual partners? And then shes with Dean and Bobby at the same time and gets pregnant? What a dirty hoe. It seemed like throughout the movie Dean loved her, but she didnt love him. Actually now that I think about it she is probably the reason Dean drinks so much. Spending the rest of your life with that bitch? Godspeed....
