Crossbones Marvel Cinematic Universe

Comic book characters have some trouble staying dead. And the same can be said for the characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Although they might not be brought back to life like their comic book counterparts.

Instead, we get to see previously dead characters rise from the grave thanks to the use of flashbacks. And it looks like we may see the use of it once more in Avengers 4. But it won’t be a hero. Instead, Frank Grillo’s Crossbones aka Brock Rumlo will be making a comeback. More on the report below.

Blu-ray Review: The Purge: Election Year

The Purge: Election Year banner

The Purge: Election Year
Blu-ray Combo Pack | DVD | Digital HD
Director: James DeMonaco
Writer: James DeMonaco
Cast: Elizabeth Mitchell, Frank Grillo, Mykelti Williamson, Terry Serpico, Betty Gabriel, Joseph Julian Soria, Kyle Secor
Studio: Universal Pictures Home Entertainment
Release Date: October 4, 2016

The Purge: Election Year is the third installment in four years for the Purge franchise and in my opinion is the best so far. Where the first one was a home invasion movie, and the second was a stilted revenge movie, the third entry is all political thriller dripping with socio-economic commentary. Again written and directed by James DeMonaco, The Purge: Election Year focuses on Senator Charlie Roan (Elizabeth Mitchell) who promises, if elected, to end the yearly night of guiltless violence and murder. This obviously makes her a target for the corrupt “new” founding fathers who want to preserve their political and economic dominance.

Returning for part three is Leo Barnes (Frank Grillo), the anti-hero/hero of The Purge: Anarchy. He was a vengeance-seeking Purge participant when part two began, but now he’s back to his old job, working security detail for the Senator. Of course right when Purge night begins, Roan’s house is attacked and she and Leo are forced to venture out into the abyss where Purge activities are commencing as usual. The Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack comes loaded with special features including 8 minutes of deleted scenes, including an extended Purge night montage.

Earlier this year, Captain America: Civil War stormed into theaters wowing audiences with its spectacular narrative and incredible splash-page sequence that no one could stop talking about. Now, Disney and Marvel are letting fans bring that home, as the film is now available on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD. We’ve already reviewed the film and had some extra cool coverage during the press junket. Like my previous Blu-ray reviews, this won’t be so much of a review of the film itself, but of the bonus features that come with it. Check it out below.

Here are the list of bonus features with a review below.

The Purge: Election Year review image

The Purge: Election Year
Director: James DeMonaco
Screenwriter: James DeMonaco
Cast: Elizabeth Mitchell, Frank Grillo, Mykelti Williamson, Terry Serpico, Betty Gabriel, Joseph Julian Soria, Kyle Secor
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated R | 103 Minutes
Release Date: July 1, 2016

The focal point of The Purge franchise has been to address the seriousness of the gap between the two social classes of the rich and the poor. It’s a reflection of sorts that has terrifying results in which a newly rebooted government has established during an annual event there will be 12 hours during which any crime committed will not be punished. Though this day known as The Purge has brought crime down, it has disenfranchised those who could afford insurance coverage from looting and property damage, and protection from those who take advantage of being able to kill without consequences. So even though blood is constantly being spilled throughout the films, there is a very serious social issue that director James DeMonaco is trying to get across to the audience. While he may have successfully gotten that message to audiences in The Purge and The Purge: Anarchy, The Purge: Election Year doesn’t quite fall flat, but it doesn’t take full advantage of the timely politically charged election campaign themes, nor does it make use of misappropriating religion.

Release Date: May 6, 2016

There are no successful superhero film franchises under one roof like the ones over at Marvel Studios. Time and time again the studio has repeated its success, risen to beat expectations, and even found ways to reinvent itself to keep their respective franchises fresh and engaging. These sequels are no longer sequels, they are political thrillers, fantasy adventures, buddy cops comedies, heist capers, space operas, and much more to come.

Now the studio will christen Phase 3 of the MCU with a bold new storytelling direction. Starting off with Captain America: Civil War, where our heroes and their beliefs come into conflict as Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) will engage in an ideological battle that will determine the fate of the Avengers.

‘The Purge: Election Year’ Trailer: It’s Your Civic Duty To Purge

The Purge: Anarchy trailer image

Writer/director James DeMonaco‘s The Purge films have been hyper-violent, exposing the politics of what a new America could be like if crime were legalized for one single day. It showed the glaring discrepancy between the rich, who could afford the luxuries of protection, and the poor, who must defend themselves with flimsy security, or offer their own lives as tribute killings to protect their own loved ones. The franchise has spanned two films, each being a respectable hit, and now Universal has released the first trailer for The Purge: Election Year.

Check it out below.
