Things I noticed on the 195th time viewing Fury Road:
When Max is collecting hidden guns inside the rig and he points and snaps to the one behind Furiosa, Cheedo is the one who obeys Max and retrieves the gun. She is so used to obeying the commands of men that she doesn’t question it like others do.
When Cheedo runs to go back to Joe after Angharad’s death, her anger is so pure and audible, such a 180 from how we’ve seen her til this point. When the other girls tell remind her of Angharad’s words “We are not things”, she lowers her voice and screams, almost growling back at them “And now she’s dead!”.
Max has a flashback of Glory being run down just before Furiosa pins him to the Rig and tries to make him shoot himself in the face with his own gun. He is shaking his head, twitching it quite a bit during the first part of the film, trying to get that image out of his head while trying to defend himself and escape.
Max never does join the Vuvalini at their camp site. He stays inside the rig during Furiosa’s emotional reunion with them, and he remains near the rig when she speaks to him later. He still feels apart from them. Unaccepted by anyone but Furiosa.
Max’s personality and body language shift so noticeably after he rides out to catch the women on the salt. It’s incredibly, incredibly obvious he’s had a major change happen in his mind. From here on he is one of the group, interacting seamlessly with each member of the crew, even the Vuvalini women, who have given them their trust.
It is one of the Vuvalini who calls out to Max “Stay with me” when he’s momentarily stunned while fighting on the rig. This transitions into a vision of Glory asking him to stay with her. We’ve seen a repeating theme of women asking Max to stay with them through this film. This can be viewed as them welcoming him, caring for him, or it can be viewed as torturous for Max, because he can never stay by their side.
Nux is revealed to be on the Rig, and the women still do not trust him, but Max does. He goes to destroy the Bullet Farmer, and he brings back the wheel and boot for Nux. At this point Max knows fully that Nux is like he is…swept up in a situation, where it’s best they all work together to survive.
Nux is the only other person Max touches, skin to skin, besides Furiosa. He touches his head and gives him this affectionate pat to urge him back into the Rig during the speed battle with Slit.
Furiosa’s pain from her stab wound is made clear quickly/ As she shifts gears to ram Joe’s Gigahorse, you can her the raspy, airy sound in her voice lets you know what is happening to her, even though her wound is fresh. A++++ for Charlize’s acting, again.
Slit points at Furiosa when he is aiming to kill her while driving the Razor Cola. Nux points at Capable and the Vuvalini when he is about to destroy himself for them.
Max speaks in a very mannerful way during the blood transfusion. He even says “thank you” while asking one of the girls to hold something for him. He says “sorry” numerous times. Important because it’s completely extraneous, he has no reason to speak with such manners, yet ye does. He is communicating with gratitude, which in such a world, is almost completely forgotten, yet he does it here. He could bark orders, but he chooses to speak orderly and kindly to everyone in this scene. He cares for and respects them all enough to treat them properly, as mankind once treated people before they devolved into insanity.
Max continues to hold Furiosa’s head until the fade. (pardon me for my sobbs)
“I don’t know what’s going to happen in the next five or 10 years. At some point I wanted to have a family and settle down, but I don’t see that happening for a very long time because I really love this. This is my life, my world."
sofia couldn’t remember the last time she’d felt so nervous about anything. granted, there was the general nervousness of being a mother and everything, but that had faded gradually over the last four years. knowing she was going on a date, however, was something entirely different. sofia had to get herself ready and make sure april was good to go over to her parents’ house along with alice. hearing the doorbell ring made sofia panic, starting to scramble as she went towards the door. “april, honey, it’s time to go!” the brunette called out before opening the door, grinning at the sight of noah. “hi handsome, come on in,” she smiled, opening the door wider so he could come inside for a few moments.

Horoscopes By Gil Hizon - Week of March 14-20, 2016
There’s always a time and place for you to get over yourself.
PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
When things get fucking dire, you tend to look back in your past to relive moments of bliss. And that’s all well and good, my love, but the moment you start using the past as an excuse to neglect what you’re supposed to be doing in the present, it becomes a form of regression. The best way for you to kill two bitches with one stiletto is to mine the mental escape to learn lessons you can apply to your current situation.
ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
Oh, honey. You may think you know it all, and you’re ready to blurt out that shit at a moment’s whim, but this is a case of thinking before you speak. It’s not that your instincts are necessarily wrong, but the delivery of your input can be misconstrued by idiotic bitches who don’t get chu. And the last thing you wanna be doing is muddying up the waters of your gayvironment. Find a better way to say shit.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
Gurl. I know you told some bitch that you’re gonna do something for her, but there are factors beyond your grasp which hinders you from doing so. And I know this will cause you to feel a lot of guilt, because you don’t like to go back on your word, but honey: you need to free yourself from this unnecessary negative mode and do what you can around the restrictions that are keeping you from fulfilling your promise: This bitch will at least applaud you for the effort.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 21)
See, this is the problem with you cerebral queens: Rather than proceeding with your heart’s intent to achieve success, you choose to fill your big ass brain with every single possibility pertaining to your master plan, including the things that could derail you from reaching your goal. You really need to stop wasting your time (and others’) with all that negative thinking. Please continue to proceed not with caution, but with badassery.
CANCER (June 22 – July 22)
We’ve seen all sorts of tricks from you, including the ones you bring into your bedroom but would never introduce to yo mama. Now, the judges and I are asking you to tap into that emotional center and show us some fucking vulnerability. We know that you can one-woman-show your way into any two-drink minimum dive bar, but juggling balls will not be necessary to win this competition. You need to be serving real, raw emotional realness this week.
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
You’re feeling emotionally clogged this week, my dahling. And gurl, I understand. You’ve been going through some growing pains from recent big decisions you have made and it’s really fucking you up. I am a firm believer in transforming any negative energy into something more productive. In your case, try to channel your fears and misgivings into your work, or into that thing that you feel passionate about.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
You’ve been doing some major good for yourself lately, and now, you want to go fucking global, bitch! It’s admirable the way you want to help others, but your biggest obstacle in doing so lies in your ability to be open minded about what others can or cannot do. It’s okay to hold yourself to a high standard, but when you start imposing that shit on others, that is definitely not cool. Every queen is different, and the best way for you to help is to let them be who they are, and at the same time, adapting your methods to suit their needs.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
While some people take the time and energy to reinvent themselves, you already done that shit. All you need right now is to fucking let loose of that great creativity bubbling up within yo ass and really let that shit hit every fan in the room, queen! And honestly, the only ho standing in the way of you letting it rip is you, my dahling. The time for second guessing is ovah!
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
What has gotten up your ass this past few weeks? All of a sudden you’re second guessing every whozits and whatzits of every kernel of the past you can remember. You are here in the now, bitch! You exist in the present time as you are. The only thing concerning you is whatchu gonna do now and tomorrow. Let your past stay where it is. She be occupied and she don’t need to be occupying your progress, hokay?
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
Oh, you adventurous ho. Something sparkly has caught your eye and you’re ready to go fetch. But lady, you made a promise to a ho and, although bitches have forgiven you in the past for being flaky (and this current bitch may forgive you, too), don’t you owe it to yourself to make honoring commitments a part of rejuvenating your soul? Do right with this queen, and you’ll be one step closer to enlightenment.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
You’ve done a lot of hard work lately, and there are times – like now – where questions and negativity seep into your brain regarding your worthiness for achieving a certain stature. Let me tell you about a lot of bitches who succeed in life. Some are not the most talented queens, nor do they have a lot of resources, but one thing these hos have in common is this (hint: it’s not BJs): they never gave up. Nor should you.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
This week is all about transformation, my darling. The thing about metamorphosizing is that sometimes, that shit takes time. And you’re not the most patient bitch in the zodiac. What you must understand is that there is no reason to hurry up this process. A lot of important nuggets of truth with your life’s purpose can be achieved between the so-called milestones of your journey. So sit the fuck down and read a magazine while you wait.
