The Purge Review. It Could Have Been So Much More

The Purge review By: MattInRC Spoiler Alert! The Purge has all the best intentions, but its execution is terribly flawed. The era of ultra-violence is upon us: stories about baddies dying terrific deaths, or heroes leaping from cars to defy the rules of gravity, are celebrated and marketed by Hollywood as part of The Summer Movie Season. A society bent on enjoying such entertainment over more meaningful (and potentially just as thrilling) stories seems to be all Hollywood can produce now, such as the well-intentioned but poorly-executed thriller The Purge . It's the kind of film that could have been so much more but achieves far less. It's the year 2022, and crime/general suffering is at an astonishing 1% No, we haven't founded The United Federation of Planets, or come up with a new food and money supply to bring the world happiness. What society has achieved is far more morbid: during one 12-hour period each year, Americans are allowed to engage in The

First Image Of Theo James As "Four" From Divergent

Attention all you Four fans: here’s an exclusive reveal of Theo James as Tobias “ Four ” Eaton, the mysterious–and rather dreamy–Dauntless leader that takes a special interest in Beatrice Prior ( Shailene Woodley ). For those of you who haven’t read the Veronica Roth books, Divergent takes place in a dystopian future where all of society is divided into five factions: Amity (peaceful), Abnegation (selfless); Candor (honest, Erudite (intelligent); a nd Dauntless (brave). Our heroine, sixteen-year-old Tris, chooses the Dauntless faction. EW caught up with Theo James while he was on a break from shooting Divergent in Chicago where the production will continue until mid-July. ”Is this the picture where I have a t-shirt on and no pants? I was really hoping they’d use that one,” James jokes, before explaining that this picture (note: he is wearing pants) captures a moment from early in the film when Four is showing the Dauntless initiates around their new headquarters. “I’ve introdu

Benicio Del Toro Joins Guardians Of The Galaxy

Just when you thought the cast of Guardians Of The Galaxy couldn’t push the boundaries of the word “eclectic” any further, here comes news that Benicio Del Toro has hopped aboard in a leading capacity, albeit one that Marvel and director James Gunn are keeping under wraps for now. According to Deadline, Del Toro has signed a Samuel L. Jackson -style multi-film contact, the sort that most of Marvel’s main actors have been locked into but one that, like Jackson, will let him pop up across various films without having to carry the main acting load. Is he a hero? A villain? Place your bets now and make your suggestions in the comments or on Twitter. Del Toro joins a huge cast of varied performers that includes Chris Pratt, Glenn Close, Karen Gillan, Zoe Saldana (whose signing appears to be all but complete), Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, John C.
