    Mad Max: Fury Road 2015

    ★★★★½ Watched 17 May, 2015

    It's been a long wait.

    But, just like amazing sex, it's always worth the wait.

    I decided to wait a day before writing this review because I didn't want to write it from the adrenaline fueled, fanboy-gasm that I had when I walked in and out of the theater.

    This was a film that took so long to make, and went through so many production woes, you really wondered if it was just doomed from the beginning.

    Then that first…

    There's no doubt that David Wain is a genius when it comes to comedic parody.

    Transformers: Age of Extinction 2014

    ★½ Watched 28 Jun, 2014

    I won't say that it was good, or even that entertaining. It's a total turd. But, it's the Bayiest Micheal Bay movie ever Bayed. Which means it's nothing but one-liners and explosions. It's a good turn your brain off film. Nothing more. No real cinematic story. Just lots of splosions.
