Saw Whiplash last night.  Absolutely loved it.  I'm not a jazz fan in any way, but the music was excellent.  Knowing that Miles Teller was actually playing made it that much more enjoyable.  And J.K. Simmons played such a detestable person I will never look at a Farmers Insurance commercial the same way again!

One thing that always blows my mind is they find the sweetest bases for rat rods in the apocalypse, and I couldn't find one right now if I went out looking for it.  :)

Just caught the new trailers for Ant Man and Genisys earlier...

Ant Man looks good. I see a lot of people ragging on it online, mainly for being "another origin story." but what can you do? Marvel has a good track record, and expectations aren't nearly as high as they will be for Ultron and Civil War.

Genisys though... I don't think I've ever seen a trailer spoil the plot like that one. What a joke, and makes me even LESS excited/inclined to see it.

Yeah... I watched it and was kinda stunned that they dropped a big plot twist spoiler right smack dab in the middle...  makes you wonder how ****** the movie is tracking for them to basically lay it all out in the preview like that.

I'll catch it on HBO/Netflix in a few years I guess...

I  don't see really anything new in Genisys. It looks like a lot of plot points from the first two movies. I guess someday I will see it but I won't be paying for it.

Caught Mad Max last night... definitely the best one and visually it's one of the best I've seen. I can see it winning multiple Oscars for costume design, cinematography, sound editing, directing, editing, makeup, production design, score, screenplay. It is that strong on all levels.

Honestly Max/Tom Hardy doesn't talk a whole hell of a lot and I think Charlize Theron/Furiosa takes center stage.

The movie is nihilistic, creepy, loud and fast-paced and the story is pretty straight forward with a satisfying climax. I saw it in RealD 3D and that added quite a bit to the experience as I'm not a fan of 3D in general. There is so much thrown at the screen though that its almost a requirement to watch it in that format.

Definitely catch it in theaters as some of the scale of the battles would be diminished in a smaller format.

4.5/5

Fury Road was a fun ride!  I enjoyed it more then the new Avengers movie that's for sure.

I thought Mad Max was great ridiculous spectacle.  I can't assign the dept to it that a lot of people seem to be.  But I've never seen better giant vehicle set pieces.
