Mad Max Fury Road (2014)

Mad Max is all about the spectacle of modified vehicles in combat. Mad Max Fury Road spends most of the movie in that frenzied state. The action sequences were outstanding. I would have used Guitar Man to feed the sound track more. 

Tom Hardy was alright, I liked Mel Gibson way more. I found the movie very sastifying, but the old Max was more endearing. I do look forward to the sequel, and and a helper at least. Rotten Tomatos gave it 98%. I am not that taken.

Chappie (2015)

Neil Blookop makes interseting well directed movies that flow. This is his third and worst. He makes a story that is not complelling. I do not buy into much of the premise. Hugh Jackman as the villian is comical, not funny ha ha, funy as a clown. Its a movie worth watching but for me a big dissappointment from the director of District 9 and Elysim. I love the t shirts the characters wear. I appreciate he is trying to tell us the criminals are mom and dad. But he did not pull this off.

Very nice put together movie that was not satisfying due to poor plot. Defienty worth watching and by the gap you can see the first thing worth watching in months IMHO.
