MAD MAX: FURY ROAD
PLOT: In the future, in the desert everything has to be fought for.
Mad Max is back!! I really don’t know if it is a sequel or a reboot but it is very good!!! The director of the Mad Max movies George Miller hasn’t lost his touch for action!! WARNING: Action starts at the beginning of the film slow down just a bit then amps up at the end!! Don’t be late!! Max is now Tom Hardy (Bane, Dark Night Rises) he’ll kill just to survive. Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron (Snow White and the Huntsman) tries to redeem herself by taking Immortan Joe’s(Hugh Keays-Byrne(Toecutter in the first Mad Max)” wives “or sex slaves from him. She is tough but has a soft side and a back-story. He wants them back and the chase is on. Nicholas Hoult as Nux (Beast, in X Men First Class)is a War Boy who works for Immortan Joe but then changes his mind when he falls one of the “wives” He is mentioned because he says the future catch phrase “What a lovely day!”
PLOT: The Bellas are back with songs and problems.
The ladies are back and they are about to graduate from Baden college. After a disasterious accident in front of the President at Lincoln Center the singers has to find their “Bellas” sound back and beat the latest cappella international sensation German group DSM. I didn’t see the first film but it is raunchy, funny crazy but the ending is great!!! Actress Elizabeth Banks is in the movie and she directed it as well. It is a hit and I don’t know why-maybe a little: Girl power!! If you like the first one you will enjoy this one. It is nice to see a chick movie in the summer among the blockbusters that is making money!!!
PLOT: A teenage girl discovers a small pin that takes her to another dimension.
The movie is original meaning it’s not a superhero, not a sequel but about a young woman named Casey (Britt Newton ) who receives a mysterious pin and it takes her to an exciting, future world. When the girl asks questions there is an action sequence but near the end all is explained. It is complicated watching it the first time. It will do very well on video. The special effects are amazing but try to stick with it when watching it. Interesting if you want something different.
