The Purge (USA, 2013) – an Uninspiring Home-invasion Thriller

In the wake of a devastating financial crisis, steadily rising unemployment, overflowing prisons, and escalating violence, a newly-elected US government implemented a new strategy to keep the carnage at bay. Thus, on one particular day each year, anything goes. Emergency calls go unanswered, while police stations, fire departments and hospitals are closed. For 12 nocturnal hours, people are allowed to give free reign to their rage, aggression, and deepest sadistic urges – without being legally called to account. Even murder goes unpunished. Known as The Purge, those with sufficient means at their disposal can barricade themselves within the safety of their homes, protected by costly security systems. Those without, are left to the bloodlust of the mob.

The Big Wedding (USA, 2013) – Dated, Deflated and Prefabricated

Despite being adapted from a relatively popular French/Swiss film, MON FRÈRE SE MARIE, this version is little more than a feature-length sitcom with an A-list cast.

To The Wonder (USA, 2012)

His name alone, uttered with such reverence, was enough to have the culture vultures crowding into the press screening. Where were you all when I was taking one for the team? I asked. Subjected to EVIL DEAD at 10 in the morning? Or even SCARY MOVIE 5? “But this is Terrence Malick”, the critics whispered in awe.
