    ★★★½

    Really the only knock on this is that it takes a little too long for the big man to show. But even then, this isn't a late period Showa Godzilla where the human side of things is just nutty pro-forma set-up. It is credible as folklore and really beautifully done.

    And really, when he does show up it is ferocious and seamless as a practical effects showcase and just metal as hell. That score!

    Stunned at how bad this was and how much time was spent litigating why Baby has earbuds in his ears and "wutzzee lissenin to?!" over and over and over and over WHY ARE WE NOT IN A FUCKING CAR HAVING A CAR CHASE.

    This was a *bad* movie. Bad.

    The characters were non-existent, and not in the way that an action movie will give blank slates to project onto, or simply rely on a classic "type" and the audience fills…

    Mad Max: Fury Road

    ★★★★★

    Wealthy men controlling women's bodies and fostering inhumane living conditions vis a vis some glib performative religion predicated on control from a grotesque, awful, messianic fascist with a profoundly dumb and conniving coterie of heirs; the disruption of which causing retribution and pursuit from the oil and gun lobbies. Proud war boys running around keeping it all in line while the poor and indigent have been made incapable of seeing themselves being held down, regarding perfunctory doling out of basic rights as heroic acts of grace.

    This movie came out in 2015.
