Post Episode #20: The Google Internment
After a disastrous week of predictions, I'm ready to bounce back, as we continue to slog through the summer movie season with The Internship and The Purge.

Now, I realize that James doesn't have The Purge listed as an upcoming review, but I'm going to include it in the event that he decides to see it. After all, he did review The Big Wedding on a whim. That being said, predictions for The Purge will be double-or-nothing. You either get it right and earn two points or get it wrong and earn zero points. No harm, no foul.

Here are my predictions for this week:

1. The Internship - ImageImageImageImage
2. The Purge - ImageImageImageImage

Less than two more weeks until Man of Steel is upon us. Oh, and This is the End. We'll predict James' ratings for both of those titles next week.

The Internship: 2.0 (The only thing the director has done of note is Night at the Museum 2. Written by and starring Vince Vaughn...).
The Purge: 2.0 (the premise sounds laughably stupid. But at just 85 mins, how bad can it be?).

I think the premise for the Purge sounds really cool and unique.

Unique, yes. Cool, maybe. Stupid, definitely. Letting all prisoners loose for 12 hrs to have their way on the general population is not something ANY functioning society would consider a good idea to keep prison numbers down. I think I'll have a lot of trouble buying into the premise as a realistic scenario. Nonetheless, could be a fun film though, and at 85 mins it surely won't be boring.

Well as long as the film is entertaining, i'm willing to overlook that kind of Fridge Logic.

The Internship: * 1/2
The Purge: **


The Internship stars the two guys from Wedding Crashers, but the movie doesn't look half as good as Wedding Crashers and remember, James didn't like Wedding Crashers. He gave it 2 stars.

That said, I must admit, every time I watch the trailer the Professor Xavier scene never fails to make crack up with laughter. I've seen the trailer many times, and it STILL gets me laughing out loud! :lol:
