Mad Max: Fury Road

I forgot to mention that we watched this movie Sunday night and were really impressed with it. I'd heard so many people be impressed with it, and wanted the chance to see if it lived up to the hype. At least in my opinion, it most definitely did.

I usually judge the worth of movies on the strength of their acting - I have little intellectual understanding of what makes for the quality of a movie's visual or thematic aspects, so I tend to leave that for those who are more at ease with them - and I was very impressed with the acting; so much done, as other reviewers have said, with the eyes, with small gestures, and all of those subtleties were successfully planted in the middle of motion, action, explosion, none of which is pointless and all of which is almost balletic.

And that motion was paired with incredible music, gorgeous color palettes, wonderful bits of world building and myth making; it was an altogether gorgeous and emotionally moving film.

tl;dr: I liked it.

Yesssss it's the only 3D mvie ever that I thought the 3D had something to add. The entire film just looks gorgeous.

I'm sad I didn't see it in 3D, but I imagine it must have been spectacular. I was so impressed with the story even without that aspect.

I haven't had a chance to see it yet, but I really want to. It sounds really amazing.

And happy birthday.

Thanks for the birthday wishes! And definitely try to catch the movie; it proves that an action movie can be a piece of quality art. With explosions. And mythology.

I'm glad you enjoyed it! I really loved it on a lot of levels. I'm so grateful to all the misogynist assholes who complained it was "too feminist" - that's the only reason I went to see it!

And happy birthday!

Belated thanks for the birthday wishes; I'm really celebrating today with the premiere of Who.

And the movie impressed me so much that I, too, am glad that the misogynist assholes bitched enough to intrigue me. Heh.

It really was quite a revelation to me; a positive one.
