Mad Max: Fury Road- A lovely spectacle of carnage

It’s been 30 years since we last saw the character of Max Rockatansky on the big screen in 1985’s Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. Then Mel Gibson brought the character to life in director George Miller’s vision of post apocalyptic life, where tribes drove crazily designed vehicles across the Outback in search of supplies and gasoline. The 80s Max movies made Gibson an international film star and delivered some of the wildest vehicles stunts committed to celluloid, hitting their pinnacle with the second film in the trilogy The Road Warrior (1981). Gasoline tended to be the driving force in those films, as it was the source of power for both towns and vehicles. It gave us a glimpse of a savage society, one that would do whatever was necessary to survive...

Maggie- A quiet, introspective zombie film that’s both heartfelt and chilling

Zombie movies carry with them an certain level of expectation, and most check off the tropes one by one, starting with an unexpected breakout followed by plenty of gore. The best of them give us characters that we care about, and put us on edge to see if they’ll survive the undead hordes. The worst deliver simply mindless bloody mayhem, usually accompanied by very bad quips. Every once in a while, though, a filmmaker delivers something a bit different to the genre. George Romero altered our perceptions of the zombie film with Night of the Living Dead in 1968. Danny Boyle did it again in 2003 with 28 Days Later, giving the zombies deadly speed to match their ravenous hunger.

Robert Kirkman revitalized the genre yet again with his comic and later hit TV show The Walking Dead, giving us human...

Marvel Avengers: Age of Ultron- Fun with plenty of action, but falls a little short of the first film

Marvel’s The Avengers was everything a comic book movie should be- exciting, have likeable characters, witty banter, and most of all it was fun. The film felt like a breath of fresh air after the darker comic book movies from rival DC. Now we’ve arrived at the main sequel after the follow-up solo pictures (Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier). Could Joss Whedon and his capable cast pull off another billion dollar winner at the box office? Or would the film collapse under its own weight, suffering the fate of so many sequels? Would it best its predecessor or fall short? The answer is a mixed bag. In many ways Age of Ultron takes what the first Avengers movie did and upped the ante...
