Hello folks! So today I decided to have a little fun since I get Friday’s off from summer school. I am currently enrolled in an English course and a Statistics course for my Business and Journalism majors. Unfortunately the only time available for my English class was an 8 AM. Woop-di-do! There is no beating this Houston traffic, so I leave my house every morning at 6:30 AM to get to college on time.

Anyways, my younger sister and I went to see The Purge: Election Year.

Now let me put this out there: if you cannot handle graphic elements like fake blood and scary masks, then this movie is not for you. The main concept of this movie is that there is a new and evolved America where there is one day (a few hours of one specific day, rather)  when crime is legalized. People bottle up all their anger and hatred so they can kill and release the tension at once. The rest of the year, anyone who commits crime is executed without trial. There are definitely many cringeworthy moments in this film that make you ask yourself “how can people be so disgusting and hateful enough to kill each other?” But then again, open up a newspaper. Just kidding, who reads those anymore. Pull up google news or CNN on your iPad and what is the first thing you see? Go on, do it.

Terror attack. Power. Seize Control. Killed. Terrorist. Thief. Brawler. Path of Horror. Chaos.

All these words highlighted on the very first posts of this news outlet. Not going to lie, horror is one of my favorite movie genres to watch. Maybe even my go-to. That doesn’t mean I am desensitized to pain and violence. I just tell myself it is fake and go for a little scare, that’s all. We watch action movies where people jump off of buildings and run through glass doors and come out completely unharmed, with hardly a visible scratch. That isn’t realistic either but we still watch them, not thinking of the impact if a person did that in real life.

Going back to my main point, I tried to watch this movie just like the hundreds of other horror movies I have seen, but this one was a different experience. The crime rate throughout the world is at an all-time high. Hearing of all the terror attacks happening makes it harder to enjoy these scary movies with the simulated spewing blood and shrills in the background. As people shot each other because of petty arguments in the past over money, power, and beauty in this film, I could not help but picture the starving Syrian refugees and the innocent people who lost their lives in Istanbul, Baghdad, France, etc. It is like a nightmare come true.

My heart goes out to all of those who are grieving, sad, ill, or going through hardships. But there is no excuse for murder. By all means purge. Not by killing someone, but by forgiving.

    1. it wasn’t anything special. I just really liked the concept of having one day just for illegal activities. I just like to ponder about it. How would life be like? People would be so fake until Purge day, when they come kill you and you never even knew they were holding a grudge.

  1. I loved that movie! Have you seen the first and second movies? I think they really put the third movie into perspective. I love these movies because of how realistic they are. I think that makes people really consider the direction our world is headed in. I love those pants btw!

    1. Thank you so much! Hurry and get those jogger pants from Charlotte Russe before summer ends! I have seen all three movies but since this one was about the elections, it brought in a completely different and terrifying perspective. Even though we don’t necessarily “purge” in the way they do, Trump is doing everything he can to separate the civilians based on stereotypes and assuming a small group of people represent an entire race/religion. Whether it is purging through killing or constructing a wall by borders to separate people, he is not physically killing us, but he is murdering our hope for a better America. Wow, lol I actually like that last line.
