The Hunt with Betty Gilpin and Hillary Swank… We loved it!

The Hunt was super fun, full of death and dismemberment. What’s that say about us? Who cares! We loved it and how it struck at both sides of the political spectrum.

SPOILER ALERT!  Watch the movie before proceeding.

Life Lessons Learned from The Hunt

Listen to our episode on The Hunt

Sky: Keep your wits about you.

  • There’s always a fool that goes off with guns blazing, losing his mind. That’s how you get killed.
Members of the hunted (from left, Ike Barinholz, back to camera, Justin Hartley, Kate Nowlin), including Daisy (Emma Roberts) and Don (Wayne Duvall), find weapons in a clearing in The Hunt, directed by Craig Zobel.

Dusty: Be prepared for anything. 

  • You never know when you’ll be put into a life-and-death situation like this, so… bone up on your hunting, shooting and survival skills.

They screwed themselves royally by picking the wrong “Crystal”.

Sky: Be mindful of what you say and do, it can easily make you a target. 

  • Social media is a job killer. We’re not saying to NOT say what you want, but just beware that with today’s over-reacting and politically charged climate, what you say can be held against you. Cancelled!

Dusty: If someone is going to kill you, its either you or them.

  • Don’t play by any “rules”. They’re hunting you, hunt them right back and don’t hold back.

Loved this final battle between Betty Gilpin (Crystal) and Hillary Swank (Athena).
