The puppet cast of a 90s show keeps getting murdered; a disgraced private eye tries to investigate. Bad jokes and puppet sex makes this a really adult oriented mess. Not Recommended

This is where it all starts, the prequel to the purge movie series. Trying to push the crime rate below one percent, a government starts a social experiment to give an isolated community no laws for 12 hours. I like the original purge which was a unique idea but this one just felt like it had to tell a story and it is somewhat racist in its nature too. Recommended with caution.

More of a drama then an action movie, Donnie Yen is an ex-soldier who starts teaching a school with poor and aimless kids and tries to inspire them, while dealing with criminals trying to take over the school. With emphasis on relationship between teacher and students, it seems like a feel good movie but Donnie Yen martial arts skills although used but that was not enough for me to feel like it was a letdown and not enough use of Donnie Yen martial arts skills. Recommended with caution.
