Just an aimless twenty-something that loves to watch horror movies and imagine ways they might die in the next week or so.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I don’t completely understand why this movie is so beloved. Sure the performances by Albert Brooks and Holly Hunter have terrific energy, the newsroom setting is entertaining and fairly ripe with interesting themes on ethical journalism (though it is not explored nearly enough), and the plot itself is fairly unique with the trios resulting friendship, but quite a few things really did not sit right with me here.

It's a mess. I wanted to take a deeper dive into this film like I tried with the rest of my Purge reviews, but I don't think I want to have the mental energy for that.
This took a pretty big step back in quality from The First Purge, and left me with the same slew of complaints I had with the first three. The main characters are boiled down into caricatures, the politics are sloppy and offer no answers…
