My Favorite Scene: Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) *Flaming Guitars and Hood Ornament Max*

George Miller’s Mad Max series finally got the budget to make Miller’s truly insane version of the post-apocalypse come to life last summer.  The result was one of the best films of the year, and the most lauded summer blockbuster (10 nominations) that I can recall the Academy ever noticing.  The film is just insane.  Explaining it to someone who hasn’t seen it, is nearly impossible.  It’s gorgeous and grotesque and SO BIZARRE!  Nowhere is this better exemplified than in the first real chase scene in the film where Max (Tom Hardy) is strapped to the front of a car as a hood ornament/human blood bag (yep, read that right) and the entire mad convoy is accompanied by my favorite non-Star Wars character of 2015: inexplicable flaming guitar guy.  The convoy has an entire truck dedicated to a guy playing a guitar spewing flames and is backed by enough amps to deafen the world.  That’s the kind of gonzo awesome weirdness that made Fury Road such a pleasure.  What a lovely day!

Movie Review: Mad Max Fury Road (2015) *The Maddest of them All*

Mad Max, Mad Max Fury Road, Tom Hardy
Mad Max: Fury Road
, the fourth film in the franchise and first in 30 years, has received the kind of critical and audience praise usually reserved for Pixar classics.  Tom Hardy takes over the titular role from Mel Gibson and, while there are Easter eggs for series fans, this is really a fresh start for the franchise.  I apologize for the tardiness of this review.  I actually first saw the film Thursday night and I’ve been stewing on it since then and decided I needed a second viewing to write a fair review.  So, after two viewings, is Mad Max worth the hype?

Mad Max: Fury Road Trailer #2 (2015) *Borderlands the Movie?*

I know, I know, Mad Max was first, but I’ve played several hundred hours of the three Borderlands games over the last few years and when I look at this movie, I think it’s midget shootin’ time (that probably sounds really bad if you haven’t played the games).  They’ve certainly gone all out in trying to resurrect the Mad Max franchise.  The fourth installment starring Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult hits theaters on May 15, 2015.
