I agree on both counts with you. Star Wars has a lot of support behind it that honestly even if the movie was awful it is still going to make more money than most movies out in 2015.
Mad Max: Fury Road was unbelievable as well. I couldn't tell you why I loved it because I just loved the entire movie. I mean the characters were deep enough to care about, but not too deep that it took away from the action or scope of the movie. The imagery was just gorgeous and it was a freakin' desert! I really hope they keep the franchise on track because they have a lot to work with.
