Mad Max Fury Road First Look

“My name is Max. My world is fire, and blood.” Attendees at last weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con were offered T-shirts bearing the bold legend “Comic-Con 2014 belongs to the mad.” They weren’t kidding. The teaser shown at the event went online last night, and the response has been ecstatic. I’m going straight out after this […]

Review: Legend

When a film is released with technical achievement at its centre, often it eclipses any discussion about the overall merits of the movie. Avatar is one such example from the last decade; with people marvelling at how beautiful it looked there seemed no appetite to discuss its myriad failings as a film – it even […]

Apocalypse Wow: The Fury Road To Max Rockatansky’s Rebirth

Like its eponymous wandering haunted hero, hooked up intravenously to Warboy Nux, Mad Max:Fury Road has provided a shot in the arm and jolt to the gonads of action cinema.

Mad Max: Fury Road – Review

There is a scene at the start of Fury Road that chimed with me all the way through the film and still now sticks in my craw.
