Surprised nobody mentioned the Mad Max: Fury Road trailer...  I watched it, and wow...  Looked pretty damn good.  No Mel Gibson feels odd though.

I just don't have the nostalgia for Mad Max a lot of people must have.  I only saw Thunderdome when I was young.  I watched the others more recently, and found them to be pretty goofy.  So people making a big deal of the re-make is kinda strange to me.

Same with me Bill. I remember seeing Thunderdome in the theaters and enjoying it but never saw the other two movies probably because they were rated R and I was just a little kid. I've seen them since and they are ok b-movies. They feel a little slow as you wait for more car chases. This movie could reintroduce Max to a new generation that never saw the originals. People would probably complain there are no zombies in it.

I had older brothers and the Road Warrior movies were kind of a big deal then but I was young so the storyline was lost on me.  It's kinda funny you guys were introduced to it with the Phantom Menace of the series, haha.  I liked them as a kid...  Many Legos made recreating it. :)

New one is interesting looking.  I always wanted more backstory though.  None of the movies gave enough detail.  Prequals would be interesting I think.

Sounds like Ghostbusters is finally getting the reboot treatment with an all female cast:

I would love to see Melissa McCarthy in this.  I think she'd be a riot.

Anyone see Interstellar this weekend?  Went to an IMAX showing today and thoroughly enjoyed it...especially the sights and sounds.  I see some of the nits people are picking but I got my money's worth.  I'll give it a solid 8 out of 10 with 10 being the highest.

We went to see Big Hero 6 this weekend... no surprise, all four kids loved it.  I loved it too.  Great story, very fun.  A lot more fun than a lot of summer blockbusters I've seen in fact.  Boys are hoping for a DisneyXD series as they want more Baymax...

We checked it out yesterday as well - both kids thought it was amazing.  It's really well done in every aspect.  Good story, great visuals, but also really funny with perfect comedic timing.  They didn't overdo anything, which could have been really easy in a film like this.  Sammy put it on par with Guardians of the Galaxy, so definitely worth checking out.

The kids and us enjoyed it too. Disney seems to be on a role as far as animated movies are concerned. That movie does have a pretty big plot hole though.

Finally got around to seeing Interstellar as the IMAX theater is actually showing it. Great stuff from Nolan as usual.
