Top 5 Problems with 'Mad Max: Fury Road'

Since a review can only examine the flaws of a movie so deeply, this companion piece aims to delve further into the major flaws that burdened “Mad Max: Fury Road”.

#5 The State of People

In the post-apocalyptic future of “Fury Road”, people are in really bad shape. Obviously lacking sustenance of any sort, they’ve become malnourished and physically altered, as a result. Speaking of which, why none of the women in the film comment on the fact Max is the only healthy-looking man in the entire world is baffling.

Movie Review: 'Mad Max: Fury Road' (2015)

A caravan of crazy roams the desert, leaving in its wake a chaotic free-for-all of frantic neuroses. There’s no way to soft sell this review, so let’s just get to it. The latest “Mad Max” is an assortment of cockamamie pandemonium that leaps from one lurid explosion to the next in a momentum-less rush to keep viewers from noticing a script spread thin on character development or anything else of valuable dimension.

Movie Review: 'The Drop' (2014)

In the seedy underworld of Brooklyn, Bob Saginowski (Tom Hardy) lives a rather mundane existence working at Cousin Marv’s, a dive bar that is run by his actual cousin (James Gandolfini) from whom it takes its name.

The neighborhood hangout also happens to be the drop spot for mob money and both Bob and Marv keep their heads down, as they work the arrangement.

6 Eclectic Movie Romances + A Look at Notable Film Chemistries

#6: Sound of the Sea (2001)

When love is intoxicating it can be a beautiful thing to witness and it can also be destructive. This mystifying look at an all-consuming love affair and the fine line between devotion and obsession is powerfully displayed in this Spanish drama.

As a window into the romance of two tortured souls lost in their passion for one another. Led by the exhilarating performances of Leonor Watling and Jordi Molla, this a romantic entanglement that portrays two people so wrapped up in each other, they can’t exist without the other and the aftermath is wrenchingly unforgettable.

Let's Discuss: Movie Endings, Specifically 'Martha Marcy May Marlene' And 'Warrior'

Warning: The following article contains spoilers regarding the ending of the movies, “Martha Marcy May Marlene” and “Warrior”.

You’ve watched a movie that is so marvelous, you can barely think of what is coming around the bend because you are so absorbed in all of the events that are being portrayed. The movie has you enraptured, deeply within its grasp and then…it ends.

Not just any ending though, a completely ‘Where the heck did that come from?’ ending. Sometimes the movie does not even give you that, it just ends abruptly with the screenwriter expecting you to finish where they left off and make up your own ending.

This can culminate in hours of frustration and obsessive bristling whenever the film is brought up or mentioned, in the future. At first, you remember it fondly until, your mind warps back to remind you of the hauntingly unfinished ending that permeated the rest of the film.

Must-See Movie Review: 'Lawless' (2012)

"Lawless" is the tale of three brothers who make their living running an illegal moonshine operation during the height of prohibition in America and what a tale it tells. Based on the book “The Wettest Country in the World” by Matt Bondurant whose grandfather and great-uncles are depicted in the film; "Lawless" spares no gory detail or harrowing activity of their endeavor.
