Jesus Christ Mad Max: Fury Road is one loud film. Not loud like, say, Transformers. This isn’t just noise filling the soundscape to fool you into thinking exciting stuff is happening. This is more the sound of the world of Mad Max. A world ruled by the roar of a V8 engine and the screams of the insane. This film will rattle your eardrums and melt your face with how violently hard it rocks. And there I go. Recommending the film highly right out of the gate. Can’t be helped. Mad Max: Fury Road is just that good. Click the link below for me gushing for around 1,000 words.

Hey look! It’s Critapocalypse Podcast episode 16. That’s a podcast I do with that Matt from Cinemageddon. This week we reviewed Maggie, Jack & Jill and the cinematic masterpiece which is Avengers XXX 2: Along Came A Spider. We also reviewed the Retron 5, Last Man On Earth, WWE 2K15 for PC, Shovel Knight for Xbox One and the WWE Extreme Rules PPV.

Have you guys seen Tony Zhou’s Every Frame A Painting videos on Youtube? They’re really good. Every-time I watch them I’m reminded of how wonderful film can be. I used to watch, and indeed cover on here, a lot more art house cinema. Whilst I love big flashy dumb films, I prefer a beautifully shot exploration of a character or a situation. His latest, on director Lynne Ramsay, really reminded me of this. Anyway, I watched Jack & Jill this week. Fuck.
Hey look! It’s episode 15 of the Critapocalypse Podcast I do with that Matt fella over at Cinemageddon. In this episode we review the films Left Behind, The Exterminator and a little known film called Avengers: Age of Ultron (which features a few small spoilers). Other stuff we review include Penny Dreadful Season 2, Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare, Total War Battles: Kingdoms and Mortal Kombat X. Matt also says a bunch of offensive stuff I probably should have edited out. In this week’s episode we’re drinking Oddka, which is a salted caramel popcorn flavoured vodka. So yeah, all sorts of stuff to enjoy. Click the link below for the Soundcloud version which I’ll let you download if you’re nice.
How do some films attain cult status? Sometimes it’s because the film housed an idea that sparked a large enough group’s interest. Sometimes it can be because the film is that special kind of inept that we just love to laugh at and with. Sometimes it’s because the blu-ray for the film has a quote printed in it that just reads “Is this the movie where someone’s dropped in a meat grinder? – YouTube comment on The Exterminator trailer”. You see, sometimes, such as with today’s review, it just takes having one scene. But what about the rest of the film? Click below for The Film Dump’s 4th birthday special review.
You know what’s weird? The amount of times characters say the word “weird” in Avengers Age of Ultron. I’m pretty sure everyone gets to say it. Even Ultron. That was weird. Probably one of those Whedonesque things I keep hearing about. Anyway, Avengers: Age of Ultron came out here in the UK today and so I have done my duty unto you and have gone and done seen it. So, some spoilers may be ahead, but nothing too big. I’ll warn you if I’m about to spill something huge.

Quite some time ago, 313 reviews ago in fact, I was quite pleasantly surprised by just how enjoyable Dreamwork’s How To Train Your Dragon was. I tend to give Dreamworks’ films a bit of cautious wide berth, mostly because a large amount of their output is tired or just plain terrible. Seriously, like, 90% of their film’s humour comes from people falling over or actors playing hyper versions of themselves. That’s pretty much all Madagascar is, for example. How To Train Your Dragon was different though. It had an honest to goodness actual story, with characters… and bloody dragons. If your film has dragons there’s a good chance I’ll like it. So, does how To Train Your Dragon 2 match up to the first? Click the link below for my review.
