Episode 19: 'The Purge' and 'The Purge: Anarchy'

"This one's quite dead indeed." [Plays wicked guitar riff.]

This is not a drill. The sixth annual Purge is about to commence, and the J's are out for blood. In case you've been hiding under a rock in a cave under a museum: Twelve continuous hours. Weapons of Class 4 or lower. No holds barred. Will film #48235 'The Purge' and film #49138 'The Purge: Anarchy' satiate Jon and Joel? Some films you've gotta punch in the face with your love stamp. And some films you've gotta serve a first-level-of-hell kind of hate. Whichever you choose, the government thanks you for your purge and wishes you good hunting.

Meanwhile, if you're listening at home turn off those 4-D goggles, because it's gonna get misty in here. On the tenth anniversary of his passing, Joel speaks fondly of the living legend, composer Jerry Goldsmith. And also Joel almost died! Well, sort of. Then hear Jon never stop talking about the quandaries, ramifications, and totally-plausible conspiracy theories of 'The Purge'. And the other 'Purge'. Both of them. And in case you were worried, there always be many asides and much music, remixed or otherwise. This is, after all, episode nineteen of 'Talk and Trivia, with J&J'! What did you expect?
