Mad Max: Fury Road was great. I was smiling the whole time when I wasn’t wincing or cackling. It’s fun, it’s exciting. It drops you face-first into a fully developed, vast, terrible world and doesn’t stop till the credits roll.
More importantly, though, Fury Road takes us away from the remakes and reboots. It’s a continuation, yes, a sequel, but everything about it was fresh and artistic and daring. That’s why you’ve gotta go. Support something new. Support something daring. If you’ve lamented the state of movies and Hollywood in the last decade, this is how you make yourself heard. I’ll be buying at least one more ticket for myself. It’s that great. Go. Witness.
