Behind every tradition lies a revolution.  Next Independence Day, witness the rise of our country’s 12 hours of annual lawlessness.  Welcome to the movement that began as a simple experiment: The First Purge.

To push the crime rate below one percent for the rest of the year, the New Founding Fathers of America (NFFA) test a sociological theory that vents aggression for one night in one isolated community.  But when the violence of oppressors meets the rage of the marginalized, the contagion will explode from the trial-city borders and spread across the nation.

Coming off the most successful film in the series, The Purge: Election Year, creator James DeMonaco (writer/director of The Purge, The Purge: Anarchy and The Purge: Election Year) returns alongside the producers of this worldwide phenomenon: Blumhouse Productions’ Jason Blum (Insidious series, Get Out, Split), Platinum Dunes partners Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Ouija series, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre), and DeMonaco’s longtime production partner, Sébastien K. Lemercier (Assault on Precinct 13, Four Lovers).

The First Purge is directed by Gerard McMurray (Burning Sands), working from a screenplay once again written by DeMonaco.  www.thefirstpurge.com

We cannot wait to see The First Purge! All of the films in The Purge quadrilogy have been nothing short of amazing and this one is so intriguing. Think about it. Here and there, in previous films, the history behind the reason for The Purge have been in hinted at but never gone into depth about. We need the details! Thankfully this Independence Day is going to be lit! Happy viewing!

“The message is loud and clear,” Jeff Fowler tweeted Thursday. “You aren’t happy with the design & you want changes. It’s going to happen. Everyone at Paramount & Sega are fully committed to making this character the BEST he can be.”

Fowler, a visual effects artist who’s making his directorial debut with the “Sonic” film, included the hashtag #gottafixfast.

Social media users complained about the CGI look of the titular hero, with the character’s human-style teeth drawing the most flak. Video game blog Kotaku compiled some of the most entertaining reactions.

Fowler did not specify what changes are in store for the film, which is scheduled to hit theaters on November 8.

We have to say Sonic’s appearance in the film is lackluster to say the least, we are looking forward to seeing what changes–and we hope they are sweeping–are made! What do you guys think about Sonic and his first movie trailer? Leave your thoughts in the comments’ section below!

regina hall litttle movie

We have to say we were more than a “Little” charmed with Little. The movie definitely connects with your inner child and jump starts the woes and fears that come from working for an overbearing and demanding boss. Regina, Issa, and Marsai are all brilliant actresses and their comedic chemistry is definitely one for the ages. You honestly have never seen Regina in a role like this, but Marsai’s role definitely reeds “Diane Johnson” gone “Angry Boss!” Issa is still “Insecure” as April, but she more than proves she has what it takes to become a boss and boss around a mini-boss. You just be sure to catch Little in theaters everywhere TODAY!

Grade: B+

What We Liked

marsai martin little movie

-Regina Hall as Jordan Sanders! We have never seen her as an angry boss in all the years she has been acting!

-Little Jordan’s school arc. Seeing her connect with her new friends was nothing short of heartwarming.

-Tone Bell as “Preston.” Tone was hilarious as April’s love interest. Although we are not sure if their budding relationship wouldn’t be an HR issue….

 

What We Loved
