Seriously the best film I’ve seen in theaters in over a decade. I haven’t felt so immersed and attached to characters since The Lord of the Rings trilogy concluded back in 2003. Absolutely beautiful looking film, spectacular visuals, great characters, and especially wonderful female characters in a genre lacking in them, and most of all, superb storytelling.
Mad Max has an incredibly unique look and feel that doesn’t feel rolled off a manufacturing line ala Marvel films, isn’t full of needless exposition like Nolan’s stupid Batman films, and its action scenes, while splendidly over-the-top, didn’t feel vacuous or boring, like Pacific Rim, The Expandables or The Fast and Furious, all movies that claim to be the new standard in action.
I really do think and hope that Furiosa will be regarded as this century’s Ellen Ripley or Sarah Connor. One of the best characters to emerge from a film in a long time.
OMG! Look who I ran into at C2E2 yesterday! It’s the unbelievably cool Harlee S. cosplaying as my rockabilly/ pin up Harley Quinn! This is like the coolest thing ever! She was PERFECT! So cool and the highlight of yesterday!
