The First Purge on Home Video!

Bonus features can make or break a home video release of a film. I love the depth that can be explored, and the best set to own is with The Lord of the Rings trilogy. With The First Purge (the fourth film in the series), some might expect a compendium of reports and found footage to detail first hand experiences of this event. This title released October 2nd.

Instead, the bonus material offered is short and sweet. It gets to the point and certainly satisfies introducing me to the world and explaining who the New Founding Fathers of America are, the allusions to the current "state of affairs" in this country, and what those masks mean.

For anyone coming into this franchise new, like me, the contents work. More could have been said, but I feel a series bible is not needed in this case. Die-hard fans created a Purge Wikipedia to provide the rest of the answers and back history needed to get up to speed. I feel prepared to watch the television series which is (at time of writing than publication) now four episodes in. They are saved on my PVR to binge watch as I am going to view in chronological order than in where the story takes place in Purge Time.

2016 Victoria Film Festival 

Fri, Feb 12th 8:45pm

The Vic Theatre

808 Douglas St,
Victoria, BC

The movie Girl in the Photographs fondly recalls films like Halloween in its no holds barred approach to possibly reigniting the slasher genre. This detail makes this film worth noting. It’s directed by Nick Simon, a relative newcomer to the scene and it was the last movie that Wes Craven (Last House on the Left, A Nightmare on Elm Street) had his hands on as an executive producer. Most of his films have a trademark style to them and while it’s sad he’s passed on, the lessons Simon learned will most likely carry on in the next projects he works on within the horror film genre.

[VFF '13] Delivering Hope in ChristCORE?

Tagline: “I Mosh for Jesus”

Christian punk rock music has existed since the ‘80s and its influence in the music scene is like a growing caterpillar just waiting to blossom. In ChristCORE, the scene is explored in current context by following two bands, Messengers, who are new to the scene, and Sleeping Giant, the superstars, as they tour through America’s Bible Belt. They are there to spread the word of God that should appeal to the younger generation of today, especially the rebellious ones.

Plays:
7pm Feb 4 (Vic Theatre)
