Review: “Mad Max: Fury Road” Is A Well-Oiled Machine

Excerpt: Like our underdogs in the film, George Miller finally found his Promised Land with Mad Max: Fury Road, the epitome and inevitable culmination of the previous trilogy. This is the kind of film that the Fast & Furious franchise wishes it could one day become. As it stands, every car-based film will eat Fury Road‘s dust because none can hope to achieve this same level of thoughtful, bombastic frenzy that this film inspires. Every actor and cog in this well-oiled engine propels it further and further, making it an unstoppable, unapologetic juggernaut waiting to steamroll over you and drag you along for the ride.

RATING: ★★★★★★★★★(9/10 stars)

Review: “Good Kill” Identifies the Real Enemies

Excerpt: Good Kill is an engaging and impressively persuasive film dealing with the (dystopian) future of warfare. The approach has a slight banality to it from having been previously bombarded with the same messages and cautionary tales in previous films about war. Thanks to great performances from Hawke, Jones and Kravitz, the messages in this film prove to be worth repeating.

RATING: ★★★★★★(6/10 stars)
