Purge 2 Green-lighted

34 Million Dollars means more Purge

Variety has discovered that Universal is going for ward with a Purge Sequel. A sequel seems like a no brainer since the film cost only 3 million dollars to produce and made 34 million dollars its opening weekend. Variety learned that the sequel was a go due to Blumhouse Prods. receiving a $2.25 million tax credit from the state of California. “The producer’s ‘Purge 2’ was one of 31 projects that received a conditional approval on June 3 for California’s Film and Television Tax Credit program... The sequel  would have to begin shooting by the end of the year and meet several other requirements if it’s to receive the credit”. This is great news for California production crews and staff as much of their working is heading to states with better tax incentives. Regardless, this a strange way to discover that a film is going to get a sequel but nonetheless, there you have it. Are you ready for another Purge?

I havent seen this yet. These movies always look cool and end up sucking bad. Has anyone seen this? Worth my 12 bucks, or what? p.s. If you liked The Dark Knight Rises, or any new Bond film, Im not interested in your opinion. Lol. However, if you miss the good old days when Keaton wore the suit, and Moore had the keys to the Lotus, please let me know about this Purge movie. I know the two arent related, I just prefer to hear from someone with similar tastes.

Lol!  My mom sent me a text tonight saying The Purge seemed like an "awful premise for a movie."  I responded by saying that it's a good premise for a sci-fi/horror movie and that it really makes you think and it raises some real questions about human nature.

I honestly believe in the inherent evil of mankind and that those of us who are good are in the minority.  I mean, just look at what's going on in the world today!  Haha!  And it doesn't necessarily have to be blatantly evil like Hitler or Stalin or anyone like that.  I just feel like the assholes outnumber the good people.  However, I also feel that good is stronger than evil even though we're outnumbered.  It's just a matter of the good people making a stand,  The indifference of good men qualifies as evil.

Stop it VTG, the good folk way outnumber the bad. The bad just get all the headlines.

But I will say that perhaps too many of the good at times do not get involved

VTGamehendge 6/12/2013 10:54:43 AM

Well that's what I mean.  I think if you factor in the indifference of "good" men then we kinda become outnumbered.  Of course it's kind of a moot argument anyway sine there's really no way to quantify or really even qualify it.

Yeah, Since Saw went down hill after the first film, some horror movie  needs to take its place with a sequel every year. Movies like this dont need sequels. They should just be done after 1 film,

Wiseguy 6/12/2013 12:02:59 PM

 VTG, indifference and inaction are very different. Some inaction is fear....for whatever reason

And when do you see in the news all the folk that volunteer, that donate and give of themselves.  Rarely but you always hear about the thug that robbed the old lady. Those are the news that make people tune in, the bad stuff like the car wreck everyone slows down for

Anyway I guess you're with laz on this. Shame to see the cynicism but such is life. And cynicism if anything is what leads to indifference. Reflect on that

VTGamehendge 6/13/2013 12:02:44 PM

Yeah, I have become more cynical as I've gotten older.  I get what you're saying about the news stories and all and you certainly have a point.  But my cynicism doesn't mean I'm indifferent.  I'm sure with some people it does happen.  I did say, however, that I believe that the power of good is stronger than the power of evil, so that's what keeps my hope alive.  Yes, my original comment was my cynicism rearing it's ugly head, but I still feel that my hope will be stronger than my cynicism.  In other words, just because I'm a bit of cynic and I believe that evil people may in fact outnumber the good, I still have hope and believe that hope and good will ultimately prevail.  Or at least I HOPE SO!  Lol!
