Wknd Box Office: The Purge: Anarchy, Sex Tape, Wish I Was Here

By Debbie Schlussel

So, it’s halfway through the summer, and it’s been a really crappy summer at the box office. This weekend is no exception. It’s the rule and includes an incredibly racist, anti-American, anti-Christian movie. Oh, and also yet another anti-Semitic movie by Jews. Fabulouth! It will be interesting to see which tops the list of tickets sold, this weekend–Sex Tape or The Purge: Anarchy. Either way, it says something very bad about the American sheep-populated public and the Hollywood that serves ’em this dung.



* “The Purge: Anarchy“: This is the most anti-American, racist movie I can remember seeing. It is the sequel to last summer’s hit, “The Purge” (read my review), which was, itself, racist and filled with class warfare (so is this sequel). But this second Purge movie makes the first look like a masterpiece. All of the villains in this movie are rich, old White, Christian men and women who own guns and go hunting. While the lead and hero of the movie–Frank Grillo–is White, he is unable to save everyone, and in the end they are rescued by a group of New Black Panther types. Also, Grillo is rescued by two Black women. Get it?

The movie is also extremely violent and bloody, gratuitously so.

The story: just as in the original Purge, this is set in the future (2022 or 2023, I forget which and don’t care, really). The United States has been taken over by some evil, pasty-faced, old White Christian men who pray. Once a year, “The Purge” is held, during which people can kill whoever they want (or rape, torture, and maim them) without penalty for 12 hours. This gets rid of poor people (who can’t afford expensive systems to protect themselves) and “undesirables” (minorities, in this movie). Because of The Purge, the country is able to control the population, and there is less than five percent unemployment. Plus, most people are above the poverty level.

In this incarnation, a single Black mother, who is a poor waitress and has a daughter, has just failed to get a raise. She, her daughter, and her father lock themselves up and get ready to spend Purge night in their inner city apartment. But suddenly dad/grandpa is missing, and it turns out that like other sick, poor, Black men, he’s sold himself to rich Christian White people so they can behead him on Purge night, after, of course, they’ve prayed a Christian prayer to G-d. Soon, the two women (the waitress and her daughter) are escaping various evil men who’ve broken into their apartment to rape and murder them.

But they are rescued by (hot, real-life former male model and soap star) Grillo, a mysterious cop-like figure who is all muscled and weaponed up and out and about in a souped up warrior car for Purge night, on a mission to kill someone. Grillo also saves a young couple going through marital problems, whose car has been tampered with and conks out in the middle of the highway more than an hour before the Purge. Together, they traverse and try to escape the various gangs of killers, thugs, and cretins roaming the downtown area of some unnamed urban area.

And it turns out that the Purges are not killing enough people for “ideal conditions,” so the evil, White males in the government are also targeting various inner city buildings full of poor minorities for attacks and purges.

As I noted, although there are various purgers roaming the streets (all of them White men by the way), the main villains throughout the movie are these wealthy White Christian men and women (and that includes the “New Founding Fathers of America”–who began the new country and the Purge). They are rich, they dress well, they are Christians who pray (before murdering poor Black people), and they are gun owners and hunters. And, again, the heroes are a group of New Black Panther types who save everyone, and the two Black women whom Grillo saved, and now they are saving him.

After all the senseless killing, at the end of the movie, the credits play shots of bloody killing over a snippet of “America the Beautiful.” Like I said, a very anti-American, hateful movie that attempts (very poorly) to make social commentary against us–that we are all racists and murderers at heart. Gee, thanks for the tip.

I’m sure this’ll be a hit.


Watch the trailer . . .

* “Sex Tape“: Yuck. I’m sure the title and the endless stupid hype about Cameron Diaz’s naked butt on-screen will sell tickets to this crappy Bin-Laden recruitment cinema. But this was just pure, unadulterated, vulgar tripe. So incredibly dumb. Oh, and by the way: her ass? Well, it ain’t nothin’ to write home about, even in this age of quick e-mails. The two shots were quick because her butt looks every bit its age, complete with what I call “dimplage.”

First off, Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel are the oldest-looking college students ever. Here’s a tip, make-up artists: putting a wig on a 40-something hag who hit the wall doesn’t make her look like she’s a 20-something college student. And Jason Segel looks like he’s been 50 since he was 13. Doesn’t matter though, because I’d have hated this movie regardless of whether or not they made even a modicum attempt to make this look credible. The movie was disgusting and amazingly stupid.

The story: Diaz and Segel are a long-married couple with two kids in school. Their marriage has become dull because they never have time to have sex. So, they decide to shoot a porn video of them performing every sexual act in the book, “The Joy of Sex.” Segel forgets to erase the video, though, and it is soon synced up to the iPads he gave away as gifts to friends, relatives, and even the mailman, so now everyone can see it. The couple try to get the iPads back before the video is discovered but they are already being blackmailed by someone. The rest of the movie is filled with a silly hijinks on their endless quest to get the iPads back, including a long dog chase and coke-snorting at the mansion of the billionaire who wants to buy Diaz’s blog. Like I said, dumb. The situations and unfunny jokes in this flick make John Ritter’s Jack Tripper and “Three’s Company” look like genius comedy. This was supposed to be a comedy, too, but the jokes were lame and I laughed maybe three times total.

You don’t need to be a prude to know this junk is gross and the raunch is excessive and gratuitous. But that is America. Everyone not only wants to make a sex tape so they can become a multi-millionairess like Kim Kardashian, but they want to watch a dumb movie about two idiots making a sex tape. Skip this like chlamydia. Unless you prefer watching these annoying middle-agers without chemistry making out to watching paint dry. But, for me, they make the metamorphosis of paint from wet to dry very exciting viewing.

Despite the provocative title, the movie was not a turn-on. A turn-off in every way.


Watch the trailer . . .

* “Wish I Was Here“: Yet another anti-Semitic movie brought to you by self-hating Jews. This time it’s writer/director/actor Zach Braff, who endlessly mocks Orthodox Jews and can’t get it right (we DON’T go to “temple,” we go to synagogue; and a Chassidic rabbi modeled on the Lubavitcher Rebbe would NOT be watching cat videos on YouTube). Gee, why doesn’t Braff endlessly mock Muslims? Is he scared they might whine in protest or something? Or just really hates Judaism? It’s probably both. Regardless, I absolutely hated this pointless waste of time. Plus, it co-stars another self-hating JINO (Jew In Name Only), anti-Israel Mandy Patinkin.

Braff plays an unemployed actor with two kids and wife to support–all of whom he doesn’t support as he constantly chases after stardom or even a basic, paid acting job, none of which he ever gets. The movie is billed as a movie about a father who finally faces life, grows up, and takes responsibility. But in fact, Braff’s character never does that. He continues to pursue his stupid dream, while his kids are about to be thrown out of private Jewish school.

Braff’s father, Patinkin, pays for his kids to go to an Orthodox Jewish private school, but he’s stopped paying the bills because he has cancer, is dying, and wants to spend the money on an experimental treatment. And since Braff won’t grow up and get a real job, he can’t afford to pay to keep his kids in school. So he “home schools” them, which consists of taking them to the beach to play and taking them on test drives of fancy sports cars he can’t afford. Oh, and cleaning the pool and repairing the fence in the backyard.

Braff’s brother (played by the loathsome, disgusting, and annoying far-leftist Josh Gad) is a self-centered weirdo who lives in a trailer and is more concerned with building a costume for Comic-Con than he is with caring for or visiting their dying father, both of which he refuses to do.

Oh, and Braff constantly has visions of himself as a superhero or spaceman (I can’t tell which and really couldn’t care less).

In the end, well, nothing really happens except what you’d expect: the father dies. So what?

Braff and Kate Hudson as his wife have as much chemistry as Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz do in “Sex Tape.” As in, ZERO. Watching the two of them making out is annoying and dreadful. Again, get me some exciting wet paint to watch.

I hated this movie and everyone in it, except the daughter. And the Orthodox rabbi–who is otherwise made to look like a moron and a fool–has a great moment when he reminds Braff that G-d doesn’t believe in his “pursuit of happiness. That was Thomas Jefferson. G-d wants you to purse a job to support your family.” Wasn’t enough, though, to redeem this very bigoted anti-Semitic movie. By the way, since Braff hates his own people apparently as much as he hates spending his own money on his own crap, he mooched people on Kickstarter to the tune of over $3 million to pay for this digital excrement. Proving for the gazillionth time that the proverbial birthrate of suckers in America–one a minute–was an overly conservative estimate.

One thing I would definitely say about watching this movie: I definitely did NOT “Wish I Was Here.” Not even for a second.

The Purge: Anarchy. Sounds to me like some progressive wet dream. Occupy this!

Poor Debbie! She watches this drek so we don’t have to!

Take it easy this weekend! Do something other than watch a movie. Watch the news…the news…nah, forget that.

Hey, the NFL training camps open next week!

Barry Popik on July 18, 2014 at 8:07 pm

Frank Grillo, really ? Here I thought Machito died 30 years ago.

JayPee on July 18, 2014 at 8:23 pm

Thanks, Debbie. You might be amused to find that the new meme hitting the web is that Israel shot down the Malaysian airliner IN THE UKRAINE to distract from the Gaza invasion.

My usual response to idiots like this is to ask them if they have my scheduled time to be in the Bermuda Jewcave where all the Jews in the world rotate through to control the international monetary supply. Funny thing: you think a guy like that wopuld have the rota, but he can never answer me.

Occam's Tool on July 18, 2014 at 9:51 pm

    Hello Occam, I hadn’t heard this theory that it was Israel who had shot down the plane. That is some long range missile by the way!! (Or am I way out of touch with the state of modern weaponry?) However, I have just spent the first half hour of my morning emailing about one of those revisionist articles in which the Axis Powers now appear to be Poland, Poland and Poland. So I suppose nothing should surprise me.

    Its getting harder to know what we can safely believe about anything. On the plus side it makes me ever more grateful for the rock of the truth that is the Inspired Scriptures, both Hebrew and Christian Greek.

    I hope so much that all those passengers – all those being killed in the current horrors in the Middle East, in the Ukraine, all over – are being held safe in “the everlasting arms” and will wake up in a world truly at peace.

    And, Occam, re “Who shot that plane down?” don’t people urgently need to know who really rules the world, who is really behind all the horrors? The Christian Greek Scriptures spell it out for us:

    “Because we have a struggle, not against blood and flesh, but against the governments, against the authorities, against the world rulers of this darkness, against the wicked spirit forces in the heavenly places. ?For this reason take up the complete suit of armor from God…” – Ephesians 6:12,13

    It is the wicked spirit forces in the heavenly places who are pulling the strings of the current world system. If we don’t know this, or ignore it, they succeed in setting us (the children of Adam) against each other, with terrible consequences – as in the Middle East at the moment, as in the Ukraine, etc etc. Hatred seems to be on the rise everywhere.

    Hence the urgency of the Christian preaching work.

    And, judging by a very quick skim of Debbie’s reviews above, the question is what is the point of these movies? Why make them? Clearly they aren’t in the least bit entertaining. Is it simply to increase hatred, to stir people up against each other?

    Once again Debbie – thanks for the warning, but be careful you don’t poison your brain watching that stuff.

    sue on July 19, 2014 at 3:03 am

      @SUE….and how do we destroy these “wicked spirit forces in the heavenly places who are pulling the strings of the current world system “??….and please dont defer to abstractions.

      HK on July 19, 2014 at 9:13 am

        Hello HK, an excellent question. The answer is a clear and practical one. We protect ourselves from the wicked spirit forces and their deadly influence by putting on “the full suit of armour from God”. Epehesians chapter 6 explains that in detail and I will be happy to say more if you want me to.

        But how can we get rid of them – of Satan and the demons?

        We can’t. But our Creator, the God of Abraham, can and will. He had promised us that in both the Hebrew and the Christian Greek Scriptures. Has one of His promises ever failed? It never has and it never will.

        sue on July 19, 2014 at 11:09 am

          I can perhaps give an example of this in action HK – though I seem to be replying to myself(?). This is an experience from post war Eastern Europe as the boundaries changed, and people were turning on each other.

          “Most Ukrainians, including hundreds of our brothers (Jehovah’s Witnesses), were relocated to the east, within the new Soviet borders. Before this took place, however, there were numerous outbursts of hatred between the Poles and the Ukrainians living in the eastern and southern parts of the General Gouvernement. The Polish and Ukrainian Witnesses, on the other hand, were at peace. On one occasion, a Polish brother was returning home from a meeting, walking with three Ukrainian sisters, when they encountered Ukrainian guerrillas. The guerrillas tried to seize the brother, intent on shooting him, but the sisters protested, physically intervening on his behalf. The struggle went on for two hours. Finally the guerrillas relented, but first they tore off the brother’s clothes and burned them. Clad only in his underwear, he ran over a mile [2 km] barefoot through the snow to the home of a Ukrainian brother.”
          1994 Yearbook, published by the Watchtower Society.

          There are many similar and more recent experiences from Rwanda.
          I believe about 400 Jehovah’s Witnesses were murdered in the genocide there, including Hutu witnesses who were killed for protecting their Tutsi brothers and sisters. But no Witnesses died at the hands of fellow believers. Hutu and Tutsi who had turned to their Creator, the God of Abraham, did not turn on each other.

          sue on July 19, 2014 at 11:30 am

          @Sue….again, Sue, your answers are lazy and relegated to human created abstractions, even though you began by framing your response as being “practical” you fall back on a higher power doing the dirty work for you. You continually rely on wishful thinking without accepting the hard work necessary on the ground to eradicate this evil.

          HK on July 19, 2014 at 11:48 am

          But, youre probably a nice person with good intentions.

          HK on July 19, 2014 at 11:52 am

          HK, try this, http://koshertorah.com/PDF/rabbi%20yishmael.pdf

          Meira on July 19, 2014 at 2:15 pm

      Sue, this isn’t the place for Christian preaching work.

      But to answer your question about the range of missiles, Ukraine is only 1,000 Km from here so if we wanted to shoot a missile at them, WHICH WE HAVE NO REASON TO DO, there are plenty of missiles around to do the job. Sadddam Hussein’s old SCUDS for example.

      Syria could easily hit a target there.

      Meira on July 19, 2014 at 2:11 pm

        So a scud could reach, Meira! Wow. I AM very out of date. I have no idea who fired this thing, though Israel had not occurred to me as an obvious suspect. I assume it was one faction in the current war in the Ukraine – namely the faction that has been supplied with rockets that can disintegrate passenger planes.

        You get on a plane…

        I do know that being rocketed is scary. We were scudded by Saddam Hussein in our expat days. I don’t know whether he was trying to hit the military airport we unfortunately shared a fence with, or whether he had calculated how popular it would make him (with just about everyone) to demolish some expats. Either way, it wasn’t nice.

        sue on July 19, 2014 at 5:13 pm

          THAT’S CAUSE ISRAEL ISN’T A SUSPECT, SUE. That’s Fakestinian propaganda or some other anti-Israel entity’s, including Ukraine itself.

          Meira on July 20, 2014 at 1:39 pm

          Sue, I WAS IN ISRAEL DURING GULF WAR ONE! You want to know what Saddam was trying to hit, that’s easy. ME and about 4 million of my paisani.

          Meira on July 20, 2014 at 1:42 pm

        Meira- she is a JW, not a Christian. She is probably counting this time toward her Pioneer hours. She is using her New World Tranaslation as well, butchering the Greek. You are correct though- this is not the place for doctrinal debate. Keep safe in Israel. Wipe out Gaza soon, with my blessings!

        EDS on July 19, 2014 at 9:50 pm

          Yeaa, I just saw that EDS, my apologies to you and all other Christians. I don’t know if my Jewish brethren will understand that so maybe you can explain it.

          Meira on July 20, 2014 at 1:40 pm

          EDS, we lost 13 of our Golani Brigade brothers today because our idiot government gives “warnings” to the enemy that we’re coming.
          Baruch Dayan ha Emet.

          Meira on July 20, 2014 at 1:45 pm

          Yes Meira, he was trying to hit us too. And, as you know, it was scary. And EDS, I am wondering why you think us Jehovah’s Witnesses are not Christians. I assure you that we are.

          sue on July 20, 2014 at 3:40 pm

          I see lower-case sue is back.

          HK and others, even if sue were “a nice person with good intentions” that would be irrelevant.

          1. sue wants to steal Jewish souls. That is what her unending proselytizing attempts to achieve. We can’t do anything about this outside this forum, but we can urge Debbie to ban sue HERE. It is extremely sinful for a Jew to make her welcome here.

          2. sue does not engage others here seriously. I don’t how many times she has been responded to, but not once has she sought to engage another seriously. Rather, she babbles something about “God’s arms always holding” or similar meaningless slop and repeats herself. That she avoids being vituperative aids her efforts at infiltration.

          3. This time around, she tells us a “story” involving a small bunch of converts to the cult of JW where there was cooperation among them even though they had conflicting backgrounds. You don’t say. Yes, I guess that a group of wildly self-selected people who convert to JW are indeed likely to get along. But that is irrelevant to the bigger picture, which is that Jehovah’s Witnesses are parasitic on civilized, moral society. They can only spread widely in these types of societies, and, insofar as they are successful, undermine the morality that is needed to sustain such a society.

          In other words, Jehovah’s Witnesses are corrosive in the same way that the cultural slime that Debbie discusses here is.

          4. HK, what of the “wicked spirit forces in the heavenly places who are pulling the strings of the current world system”? Well, such forces do not work “at a distance.” They first must corrupt real live human beings. We all know of the Moooooslims. I suggest that sue and her JWs are another example. sue advances evil, and she does so without threats or foul language. How do we respond?

          OVERALL, I repeat that I hope Debbie bans sue because she works evil here and she does not advance intelligent discussion.

I thought Cameron Diaz was playing Segal’s mother.

DS_ROCKS! on July 19, 2014 at 3:08 am

Cameron Diaz is well into middle age. It would be nice if she accepted this, and acted accordingly.

Worry01 on July 19, 2014 at 5:30 am

With alleged films like “Sex Tape,” it’s more a case of not only the incestuous relationship of Hollywood talent agencies and the old “not what you know but who you know” meme, but also that this is more the state of mind of those that work there. In other words, these are generally done more for the amusement (if you could call it that) of those working on such projects.

And even “film” is becoming a misnomer. More and more, movie theatres are serving up these wastes of time via digital servers. I myself have known a onetime theatre projectionist whose job became redundant due to this change in technology.

ConcernedPatriot on July 19, 2014 at 6:19 am

“the purge” is just catharsis since class warfare is very real.

we just celebrated “bastille day” a couple of weeks ago…

…recall the vast majority of populations have very little incentive to uphold their end of the social contract that in turn affords you the wiggle room to survive, much less keep a blog or make tv appearances.

you are where you are becausen 50 milion folks living in poverty arent storming your home and taking all you nold dear.

Zan Tarr on July 19, 2014 at 8:05 am

    Congratulations, Zan Tarr. You are one of the twenty-six people in the country who remembered Bastille Day (July 14th) and one of the six who actually knows what Bastille day is and what it stands for.

    Victoryman on July 19, 2014 at 9:01 am

The Purge is an anti-Christian and anti-white movie and also a subtle support for abortion (get rid of those poor people). Imagine if an anti-Muslim anti-black movie was put out with the same theme? Never happen. And if there ever were a purge as in the movie, it would not be white Christians doing the purging.

Concerned Citizen on July 19, 2014 at 10:48 am

If anyone sees the rich whites as “Christians” in The Purge: Anarchy, they don’t know Christianity, its traditions, or the teachings of Jesus. I am sorry, but being rich and white doesn’t make one a Christian by default.

Who would Jesus purge?

Rich on July 19, 2014 at 12:05 pm

Actually, if they subbed muzzies for Christians, and the victims as everyone else 24/7 it would be a muzzie dream come true.

Michael on July 19, 2014 at 12:50 pm

Hey, what do you expect?…….vile,
lying, ultra left-wing, radical, extremist hollyweird propaganda at it again.

Dave on July 19, 2014 at 8:10 pm


One day after watching all of these trashy movies you will have to have counseling with a therapist. But thanks for the reviews we haven’t been to movies for years. Why support the enemy trying to brainwash us. No way.

F: Writing and posting these reviews is the therapy. A lot more effective and cheaper than the junk science called, “therapy.” DS

Fred on July 20, 2014 at 3:34 pm

there’s plenty of
junk therapy around

but whiskey
real therapy

prestigio on July 20, 2014 at 8:09 pm

Hello again skzion, Debbie can of course ban me from posting here any time she wants to. It is her forum, not mine. I will completely understand if she does so. But it is the Hebrew Scriptures that tell us not to be afraid because “underneath are the everlasting arms”.

The writers of those Scriptures are telling us the truth. That truth, God’s inspired word, was written down and copied by generations of Jewish scribes and preserved for us to this day because we urgently need to know it.

What is wrong with reminding people of that? We desperately need some real hope.

And of course “the ruler of the world” works through us, if we let him. He wants us, the children of Adam, fighting and killing each other.

sue on July 21, 2014 at 2:43 am

    Notice how sue as just done exactly what I claimed.

    skzion on July 21, 2014 at 11:37 am

@SK….I defer to you.
