Mad Max: Fury Road

I heard this movie was really deep and symbolic.  It seemed like one big long chase scene to me.

I thought so too, and it was like they took a lot of pieces from the old movies and remade it into this one.  Did you know the bad guy was toe cutter from the original mad max?  I also think the dwarf was the one from thunderdome. 

 I wasn't expecting much, figured it would just be a chase movie so I enjoyed it.  I thought the fire guitar was pretty cool.

Thanks, I looked it up.

I think I remember that incident in the news when it happened.  Just didn't realize the connection to the movie.
I know. It crazy. It happened just before they finished making the movie.

Is the "Sniper Trial" I see on CNN have anything to do with the movie?
Yes absolutely, well part of it.  Most was about his journey there and his tours. If you want to know how I'll messge you to keep from spoiling it for others.

I didn't have a problem with the sound, I just thought it was way too long. A lot of unecassary in between stuff just getting to where they we're going.

I heard some of those complaints about the sound during Interstellar.  Director Christopher Nolan has acknowledged those concerns about the sound and said that it was mixed that way in a very deliberate fashion.

Interstellar

Solid movie, good tension, but some of the sound effects and score were so loud you couldn't hear important dialogue.  Also have to check your logic at the door as far as the space/time continuum.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Good movie, but well short of the first.  Just a difficult story to tell.

I saw the trailer for Godzilla in a theater today.  It played really well on the big screen.  And it left me wanting to see the movie in the theater.

As for what I saw today?  It was 300 - Rise Of An Empire.  From a stylistic standpoint it took a lot from the first 300.  However, because 300 was so stylized there seems to have been a danger of a sequel looking like a parody of the first film.  Certainly that seemed to be the case with the Spartacus series on Starz.

As for the movie itself?  A number of the cast returned in varying capacities.  That gave this movie a lot of continuity with the first film.  And the Spartans were referenced heavily in this movie, which appears to have run almost parallel to the events of 300.  As for new cast, like Sullivan Stapleton and Eva Green?  Stapleton took a different tack than Gerard Butler as the lead of this movie, and it works.  And Eva Green?  WOW!  The 3-D was VERY kind to her.  If you've seen the movie you'll know exactly what I'm talking about.  I've liked her ever since I saw Kingdom of Heaven, and I have to say I like her a whole lot more now!

Overall, I think this is one of the first 3-D movies I've seen in some time where it really works well for the film.  The stylization that set apart the first film and was echoed in this one really lends itself well to the 3-D process.  So if you liked the first film, consider checking this one out while it's still in theaters.

Yeah, World War Z left you wanting more.  It was like the first half of what could be a good movie.

I saw wwzzzzz too. Awful movie, just awful.
I agree, what bothers me is that in this movie, the zombies don't seem interested in eating human flesh, just biting people to spread the disease. I can't recall one scene where a zombie was eating somone, just biting them.

PG-13?

Yup think so. Yeah no eating just biting
