    Mad Max: Fury Road

    ★★★★★

    Oh what a day! What a LOVELY day!

    Director George Millar returns over 30 years later to add a new story to his original Mad Max trilogy. But this sequel, fitting right in with all the previous entries, pushes the already full throttle franchise to near-biblical proportions.

    You know how you ignored something as a kid, only to really discover it as an adult and wish you had been paying attention all along because you feel like you probably missed out on having some great joy because of it?
