In the shadow of Marvel’s latest behemoth, Age of Ultron, is not where most movies want to find themselves being released. But that is exactly where George Miller’s reboot of his cult classic character Mad Max finds itself in 2015. If you’re a fan of the originals and looking for modern camera quality to amplify already terrific stunt work and desert car chases, you won’t be disappointed with Fury Road.

Recently I was able to rent Lawless and watch it. I had been dying to see this movie since I saw the first trailer for it. It was right up my alley as a semi-meathead: shoot ‘em up, good guys vs. bad guys, prohibition era, gangsters and so on.
The film was enjoyable, but a bit stale and familiar. Here is the gist: During the prohibition, 3 brothers became bootleggers. Then the law tries to shut them down, but not in politically correct ways. Then they pound their chest and fight.
