Mad Max: Fury Road | Blu-ray Review

2 hours ago | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Every so often, and in increasingly rare numbers, a big budget Hollywood extravaganza comes along and negates the crushing conditioned cynicism built into our cinematic receptors. Walking into a franchise reboot of a series that hasn’t received fresh blood in nearly three decades, following a trilogy of films having starred an infamously fallen matinee idol, forecasts were dubious at best for George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road. Premiering out of competition at Cannes just prior to receiving its worldwide premiere, the seventy year old originator of the iconic series defied all expectations to create a beautiful and intense action film, standing as one of the best sequels to arrive in well over a decade. Stuffed with innovative visuals, bloody violence, insanely choreographed car chases and serving a rudimentary feminist allegory coursing through the usual arid bromide of commonly testosterone laced genre, the film is unforgettable testament to the »

Mad Max: Fury Road Blu-Ray Review

30 August 2015 8:36 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Mad Max: Fury Road is a masterclass in how to make an action movie. Anarchic, over-the-top, wildly ambitious, aesthetically insane and absorbing from first frame to last, it’s a post-apocalyptic masterpiece that hits you like a runaway train. But even as the visuals more than live up to the adjectives of the title, with cacophonous, vividly rendered battle sequences that outdo perhaps any road movie in history, it’s also a savagely intelligent watch, packed with fascinatingly complicated characters, a fierce feminist thrust, an unusually well-realized setting and a deceptively simple narrative that just plain works on every level.

Audiences should be advised, however, that Mad Max is not the movie they might think it is – instead, it’s an infinitely better one. This isn’t a direct sequel to the Mel Gibson-led predecessors, nor is it really Max’s movie. Yes, the Road Warrior plays a central role, »

The actor has called for more substantial female roles, and for women to stop playing one-dimensional characters

Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams has criticised the way female characters are written in television and film, calling on the industry to create better roles than “the girlfriend” or “the hot piece”, and for women to “stop playing those characters”.

In an interview with the Evening Standard, the 18-year old actor also praised her Game of Thrones character Arya Stark, whom she described as “a great female character” and “a fantastic role model for girls”.

Zoë Kravitz: ‘Why do stories happen to white people and everyone else is a punchline?’

20 August 2015 7:29 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The actor has been stranded on the edges of blockbusters such as Mad Max: Fury Road and the Divergent series, but ahead of new film Dope she’s taking on Hollywood’s stereotypes and making a name for herself

On her first day shooting her first feature, Zoë Kravitz wasn’t allowed to work. Cast as a goth babysitter in the Catherine Zeta-Jones romcom No Reservations, the teenager couldn’t go on set until her designated guardian had signed in. But Lenny Kravitz was running late, and when he eventually arrived, the rock star caused such a stir that the delays simmered on. The film’s director, Scott Hicks, had no idea Zoë was Lenny’s daughter when he cast her; he wasn’t expecting the fuss. So Zoë took control. “She told her dad off,” says Hicks. “He wasn’t late again.”

Kravitz, now 26, doesn’t take any nonsense. »

Director: Andrew Niccol

Cast: Ethan Hawke, Bruce Greenwood, January Jones, Zoë Kravitz

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 102 min

With Andrew Niccol’s (Lord Of War, In Time) focus firmly fixed on the contentious and unfamiliar world of drone pilots, Good Kill reunites the writer-director with his Gattaca star Ethan Hawke (Training Day, Sinister), to evoke concerns about the use of drone technology and morality in war.

Set it the scorched landscape of a Las Vegas airbase, Good Kill follows the life of fighter-pilot turned drone-pilot Major Thomas Egan (Ethan Hawke) as he fights the Taliban via remote control for half of his day, before going home to his wife (January Jones) and kids for the other. Perpetually distant at home and increasingly reliant on alcohol, Egan’s psychological strain only intensifies when his team – led by Lt. Colonel Jack Johns (Bruce Greenwood) – is placed in the hands of new CIA masters, unshackled »
