Reel Film Nerds

Episode #30: The First Purge

July 17, 2018

Welcome to our 30th episode and review of The First Purge.  Matt and Mike get into it a bit especially how political they saw the film.  Acting was great but the story just flat out is another Purge movie.  The writer really dropped the ball on what could have been a great and interesting start to the annual Purge but nope.   

Here is your warning people this is a long pod a bit over an hour, if you just tuned in to hear our review of The First Purge stop listening around the 40 minute mark.  Matt really goes off on a rant and Mike joins in for a bit.  He does give you lots of fair warning though.  Topics start to include drones, MoviePass’s new peak pricing, and the gents first R rated movie to name a few.  Matt focuses though and begins his rant on bad movie goers and really bad parenting then explains why he will never breed or get married.  Who knows maybe you will get a kick out of it so listen anyways. 

Mike and Matt both were disappointed with The First Purge and do not recommend you to go see it unless Purge movies are your thing.  Mike loves the idea of the Purge and has enjoyed the films in the past but this one was just not up to snuff, he rated it 2.5 Reels out of 5.  Matt likes the Purge films but is not a huge fan of them he just really wanted a great story and this movie did not deliver, he rates The First Purge 2 Reels out of 5.  Thank you again for your continued support and we will chat at you this Thursday with our review of Skyscraper!
