Mad Max: Fury Road

By CaulynDarr

One of the more quite scenes in the movie.
I'm not a big fan of post-apocalyptic movies in general, or the Mad Max films specifically.  Though the reviews where pretty positive, and any excuse to see a movie will do now that Flix Brewhouse is open.  So I saw it.  And well...Wow.  Yeah, it's really good.   


Like super charged dude strapped to a giant amp on wheels thrashing a fire spewing electric guitar good.  Cause there was one of those in the movie.  There was enough kustomized supercharged wheels in this movie to turn an ork greener with envy.

And the practical effects!  You won't be able to watch the dumb rubbery CG movies any more after this. It's like eating turkey burgers for a year and then switching back to real grade A Kobe beef.  There's actually a small bit of conspicuous CG at the very end of probably the greatest practical effects stunt sequence in the history of cinema(Sorry Indy, the truck chase in Raiders just got bumped).  I think this was George Miller purposely showing you the difference between CG and real effects.  His big middle finger to standard summer tent pole effects movies.    

If I could only buy one movie on Blu-Ray that came out this year, it would be this over Avengers by a supercharged adrenaline fueled mile.  If it was two, it would be this, then Kingsman.  If it were three?  Not sure, haven't seen Pitch Perfect 2 yet.

  2. I caught that in the newest trailer! Oh man you can bet I'm building one for my army! And the giant *car?* with the kettle drums on the back! Very exciting stuff, this new movie.

  3. I saw it last week Thursday, 1st showing of the day at 2pm and there were only 7 people in the Theater. I loved it. Every adrenaline fueled second of the entire film. If you haven't seen it yet, do so!!

  4. I just got an urge to hunt down the old Goffik Rokk band figures and build a kustom battlewagon for them.
