Episode 109: Mad Max and the Guitar Hero

The Fun continues this week as we review Mad Max: Fury Road.  This movie excited me for the pure fact that it looked gorgeous and had cars AND explosions.  You can't ask for much more than that can you?  There was the fact that beyond the first trailer I hadn't seen much or read much else about the movie, which made it a near complete surprise.  As always we provide you a spoiler free review of the movie but stay tuned to the end of the podcast where we really get into the movie with our spoiler filled review!  And because we love seeing movie with people we brought a few friends of the podcast along for the ride.  Terry and TK join us for a fun long winded podcast with more than a few bad Bane impressions. Also continuing this week is our Game of Thrones season 5 spoiler review right before the Mad Max spoiler review.

Nerd News this week includes the identity reveal of Thor, Lizard Squad being a bunch of cunts, Konami switching its focus to mobile, Arrow changing to Green Arrow and wrap it up with a bit of trailer reviews for Lucifer , DC Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl as well as Jem and the Holograms.

This weeks streaming review is The Babadook, care of Bat.  Lets get it out of the way, this movie freaked me out a bit.  Hell the trailer did a number on me.  While Bat and I gave it 3/5 stars for us liking it "well enough" we might recommend you watching something else unless you really enjoy horror flicks.  There are a lot of cool concepts here but they aren't always well executed, with the ending being a bit sticking point for us both.  We hoped that they would have left a little more to the imagination.  But instead this is very much a one and done kind of movie with no real re-watchability.  If the trailer grabs you then you are good to go, but otherwise move along.

Next weeks review of Noah is a biblical celebration of disaster porn (bet that's not a phrase you see often).  Russel Crowe, Big Boat, tiny bit of rain and a whole lot of God's wrath are what we are expecting.  Here's hoping it doesn't disappoint.
