Cinemascope: Mad Max: Fury Road

Cinemascope is a regular blog post where I will share with you movies and TV shows I think are worth watching.

Released in 2015.

Plot line: Years after the collapse of civilization, the tyrannical Immortan Joe enslaves apocalypse survivors inside the desert fortress the Citadel. When the warrior Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron) leads the despot's five wives in a daring escape, she forges an alliance with Max Rockatansky (Tom Hardy), a loner and former captive. Fortified in the massive, armored truck the War Rig, they try to outrun the ruthless warlord and his henchmen in a deadly high-speed chase through the Wasteland.

Remember the Mad Max days of old? Well, this ain't them. The franchise has an updated Cirque du Soleil vibe and effects, and Charlize Theron is wonderful as the bad-ass Furiosa. This movie has great special effects, almost no dialog, and very little in terms of actual plot, but it is a visually fun (if violent) way to spend a couple of hours.

You can see the trailer here. If you have yet to see it, this is a movie worth watching.
