Seriously though, I am in thrall to this movie, and I have 3 days left to decide if I make the 3 hour round trip to see it one last time in the theaters (one theater in a hundred square miles, one showing per day only). It's pathetic, I know. But I'm obsessed. What a movie!
Is that a vexation?
So believe me when I say Mad Max:Fury Road is like no other film I've seen in at least 20 years, and probably forever. I'm going to see it for the 3rd time this Sunday, rather than seeing the newest Marvel must see, Ant-Man. Which I'll just buy the DVD when it comes out. Excelsior!
For one, it's beautiful.
Two, it's actually got a lot of things to say, with very sparse dialogue. Feminism!
And three? It's a Mad Max movie. I watched The Road Warrior dozens and dozens of time as a lad. To see this kinda sequel is like a dream.
Steeped in Dystopia.
No spoilers, but the movie is not overly graphic or extreme, even though it might seem like it from the ads and previews and material. Yes, there is a lot of violence, but it's so well done and hits all the notes it wants to hit, it's like no movie I can think of in the last 20 years.
Go see it on a big screen before it's too late.
For the record The Thing could only hope to slow down or distract The Hulk. The Thing is quite strong, but nowhere near Hulk levels. Maybe if you had all Fantastic Four you could contain the Hulk for a short period of time, but since they don't exist in the MCU, the question is moot. Hulk smashes.
If you are into "normal" movies, I'm not sure why you'd like it.
But then, these movies are now making many billions, collectively.
Did you know Marvel is telling a story spread out over like 20 movies? Something like this has never been attempted in cinema before, and so far it's WILDLY successful.
I think back to my comic book nerd reading past when I had to hope the LaVerdiere's drugstore had Thor #288 on that rickety spinning comic book display hidden over by the magazine rack. And they often didn't.
But now? It's like we've been transported to some reality where comic books are real and everyone lives in a comic book. It's amazing and Strange*

Fun fact! Here's Andre with noted Washington QB Joe Theisman - who knows about the weakness of knees - and this meeting happened in part because the Washington Football Concern was curious if Andre the giant could play football. He could not - KNEES - but it's an intriguing idea. Imagine that posse as nosetackle!
Also, some hockey team needs to get a sumo goalie.
Somehow, despite desegregation and women's lib and gay marriage and so on, we've fallen under the sway of the Confederacy Risen, the Republican Party, the Southern Jim Crow culture writ large as "American Culture" and proving to be the doom of not just America, but the world.
What madness is this? And how can Earth escape?
But probably not. We're all awash in the doom we bring down upon everyone. Yay!

1,999 posts. Where has the time gone? So many laughs, and so many gifs. Here's a bunch!
Regardless, the lesson of the last 6 freaking years is this:
That'll get the "Dot Com" money flowing.
