    Baby Driver

    ★★★★½

    Will we live to regret this day, Wednesday the 28th of June 2017, the day Ansel Elgort became a huge movie star? Only time shall tell.

    You know how during the final scene of Whiplash, you got that feeling as if your heart was about to burst out of your chest? Well that's pretty much how I felt for the whole of Mad Max: Fury Road.

    We'll start with the positives, and there are quite a few of them. On the whole, the film looks fantastic. The practical stunts are just as awesome as they were in The Road Warrior, and even most of the CGI…
