“Grim never looked so good!”
Fury Road brings jaw-dropping dystopian landscapes, and you gotta hand it to the people who dreamed them up. The first storm sequence of the movie which Furiosa enters on the large gasoline truck is just WOW! This movie is about a very grim future, but boy does it look great! Hope hasn’t looked so good, and despair so sickening. Theron’s Furiosa is a driven individual with hope, hope for a home where she was born, the land of the Mothers. She is one of the prize breeders of Immortan Joe. In fact, all women have been reduced to just that in this world. Furiosa escapes with the rest of Joe’s prize breeders, and we get this chase of a movie. I personally favour movies with CGI that blends with the environment so much so that it doesn’t look like CGI anymore, and Mad Max Fury Road achieves that, and I love it.

George Miller is a visionary. Good performances all around also help. Hugh Keays-Byrne’s Immortan Joe is adequate and played with appropriate fury! Theron’s Furiosa drives the movie, and the parts that she doesn’t, Tom Hardy’s Max and Nicholas Hoult’s Nux take up the job. Overall, a great movie, definitely worth a watch.
This is one of those movies which will put a smile on your face within 5 minutes of the beginning, and it will make you think about it long after it ends. Tomorrowland is an exhibit of a world without politics, red tape…bureaucracy. It is a land where anything is possible, and it looks amazing. Britt Robertson in the lead is quite good, but Raffey Cassidy as Athena steals the show, shining even in scenes with veteran Clooney. This kid is a star! The sequences of Casey catching glimpses of Tomorrowland when she touches the pin are brilliantly executed and they are awesome(my 2nd fav place right now after Hogwarts (: )! But it is a letdown that there isn’t much more of that later. The movie falls abruptly into storytelling mode after that and keeps explaining stuff till the end! I mean, yeah, tachyons are pretty nifty things, but we fell in love with Tomorrowland because of the gleaming skyscrapers, gravity-defying trains, jetpacks, and I really did miss that in the second half. Well, I do hope there’s a sequel to this, and we get to see much more of the future, because anything is possible!!!
Bone Gap doesn’t make any sense. Finn starts running towards the corn, the corn gives way to the stream, the stream grows into the river, the river is suddenly fields, and Finn keeps running, looking for Roza. Really, no sense at all.
But who needs sense? When life is nothing but steps in a ladder made up of deadlines and rules and whatnots, no-sense makes life interesting. And that is why I loved Bone Gap. Finn is face-blind, yet he falls in love with Petey. Finn may be bad at recognizing faces, but not once throughout the book does he not recognize Petey.
Roza loves Sean, so when Roza is kidnapped, Sean should be one to go after her. But he doesn’t because he is stuck with Finn and he doesn’t believe Finn and he thinks Roza just dumped him and went away.
This may not make any sense, but in the end it makes a lot of sense. I loved this book. Go ahead and give it a read!
