Anyone going to be watching the Mad Max blu Ray this week? I'm for sure picking it up Tuesday. Have a kids school thing at 7 and fantasy draft on Wednesday so I may have to wait till Thursday to watch it.

Definitely. Picking it up tomorrow! Hopefully it meets the high expectations.

Saw it in the theater and it was mind blowing. Can't wait to see it again!

I love my iPhone, but it will never replace my turntable.

I've heard some mixed reviews from people on it. I'm curious enough that I will at least rent it this weekend.

Yeah, it will be a rental for me. I never saw the Mel Gibson ones (at least not more than a few minutes here or there on TV), so I never really latched on to it before. I'll give it a spin, but I have honestly been a bit disappointed by the super hyped movies this year. Like CHAPPiE and Ex_Machina. Bought both of those, gave them both a watch, and while I had a decent time watching them, they weren't amazing like some people said (especially Ex_Machina which was drowning in hype).

It's a very solid film. For me it wasn't mind blowing, but it is an excellent Mad Max movie. I've seen some people complain about it being Furiosa's (Charlize Theron's character) movie and honestly it is. But she carries the film far better than I thought she could. I wouldn't be surprised to see her pop up in more gritty roles because of her standout performance here. I think the complaints about this stem from the fact these people feel shortchanged on Max's story. Which I suppose is the fault of Hollywood of late. This film is not a reboot/remake, it's a continuation. You want to know about Max, check out the other films. The almost complete lack of CGI in favor of actual stunts is refreshing and damn impressive. Hardy does a fine job picking up the character Gibson created IMO. After a few scenes I just accepted he was Max.

I think anyone that appreciates a straight up action film with great stunts and an entertaining story would at least enjoy it. If it's a genre you love, it may be one of the best films you'll see this year. I hope they let Miller make some more of these

Forgot all about it being released today. Looks like I have to go to Costco this afternoon!

I keep confusing my intentions with my abilities.
