It’s been many years since the downfall of man, Max Rockatansky (Tom Hardy) has been staying alive purely on his survival instincts and strength to never give up; meanwhile, Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron), an equally tough and rebellious woman has found her way into the good graces of the intimidating and controlling Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne). But, when Furiosa gets the idea to return to her birthplace with five of Joe’s unfetid wives, all hell is about to break loose. By chance, Max and Furiosa find each other, strangers, but common goals, will the two be able make it out alive?madmax Following the same trajectory as his original Mad Max, Writer/Director George Miller has done what might have been thought to be the impossible– a sequel to a franchise that began over 30 years ago that isn’t a re-boot, but is an honest sequel. A sequel worthy of high praise for its political and social subtext despite the existence of almost any dialogue. Examining feminism, religion, faith, and politics to name a few topics of consideration Miller has created a thinly veiled mirror to his world view but done with extreme theatrics. Goofy but still surprisingly relevant throughout; and, get ready for real explosions, the film is based largely in practical effects as opposed to CGI, it’s all about that action, Action, ACTION! Worthy of your time this weekend, it’s a monster. Mad Max: Fury Road is rated R.

After falling from grace in an ill fated performance at Lincoln Center the Barden Bellas, a college A cappella group, must fight to find their way to the top of their game and re-gain their right to perform once again; Meanwhile, the imposing and perfect German group Das Sound Machine will prove to be a formidable opponent, will the Bellas have what it takes to overcome?pitch2 First time Director but known actress Elizabeth Banks is at the helm this go round in what can best be described as the wicked and sharp comedy sequel that pulls no punches. Bringing back Ensemble favorites such as Rebel Wilson, Anna Kendrick, and Brittany Snow, there’s little change in plot time through. But, with more cameo appearances from musical/comedic legends than one can shake a stick at, Flula Borg, Reggie Watts, Keegan-Michael Key, Snoop, the list goes on, there’s plenty to stay on the alert for. Sadly, like most comedic sequels, Pitch Perfect 2 does seem to fall into the same pitfalls as almost all who’ve gone before it, a repetition of material, but louder and with less result. Most likely a rental later Pitch Perfect 2 is rated PG-13.
