Normally, this is where I shine a spotlight on horror media that’s either obscure or got an undeservedly bad rap. I had a title selected. I was ready to write about it. But then, I did something I rarely do, anymore: I went to a theater.
I saw Mad Max: Fury Road.
I’m not quite sure what I was expecting going in–given the reviews, probably just an enjoyable return to form for George Miller and his franchise. Instead, what I got was the best damn action movie of the last couple decades. Great acting, gorgeous cinematography, amazing stunts. Really, I have damn near no complaints about this movie.
It’s that good. It’s playing now, and holy crap, this is a film that demands to be seen on a big screen.
So, this one time, I’m going to recommend a film a little outside the genre I usually cover (though, being post-apocalyptic, it’s a bit of a grey area) because this one deserves your hard-earned dollars. And if it does well enough, we’ll get even more down the line.
