    would you kill people you dont like for one night?...

    i think i would hide away like a little vagina and hope that the people who would do such a thing would kill the people i dont like.

    what would you do?

    There are people I dislike, but no one that I would ever want to kill. I'm not the murderous type.

    I saw a trailer for a new one. Something about a female senator critical of the Purge is, get this, targeted by her political enemies during the Purge!

    Guess this is Hollywood's pro-Hillary movie or something. I haven't seen any of them and won't because they all look like they suck.

    So you're saying you don't have a grocery list? For shame.

    The Purge is discussed a lot on various gun forums. Many members were ok with it. Some were actually excited about the concept...

    Trying to imagine it as a real life scenario, only thing I would do is practice self defense, which in that environment, would mean being heavily armed.

    In the first movie, it made no sense to me that Sandin would allow his house to be surrounded. Nor did it make sense that the Purgers would simply stand there without any cover (I know, you have to suspend disbelief for a movie), because all of those guys were sitting ducks.

    In the first one, I thought politicians were exempt (how typical).

    Guess the rules changed?

    I think the idea for the movies are pretty cool and I thought the 2nd one was better than the 1st one.

    in the trailer for that first one
    the killers all looked like they worked at the gap
    I always figured it would really be roving gangs of reggies and rednecks

    and that most of the violence wouldn't be murders it would be teen girls being raped by middle aged men

    The concept of an annual lawless "purge" is ridiculous to the max. It makes no sense whatsoever to condone and allow all crime for a given period of time as this could literally lead to whole sections of the country being burned to the ground with major infrastructure compromised to the point of there being nothing left intact at the conclusion of the event. No government would ever allow that.
    Certain plot devices are just so dumb that watching a movie revolving around them are a total waste of time. Like time travel stories. Always so full of plot holes and when you spend more time questioning the illogical nature of the story, you've rendered it unenjoyable.
