I think Star Wars will end up being the movie of the year, sales wise. It's a massive franchise with just as massive of a fan base that spans multiple generations. The movie will literally sell tickets on title alone. If it's even half as good as I hope it will be, I'll leave the theater satisfied.

The best movie I've seen yet though is Mad Max: Fury Road. I'm not going to lie. The trailer didn't make it seem like anything special, but people would not stop talking about it on the internet. So I gave it a shot. Then I went back two more times. It was absolutely phenomenal. I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a movie so much.

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.

Oh I agree with how beautiful it looked. Every single frame could have been its own painting. The color pallets were great. The composition was great. The whole movie though just fell together perfectly, from the pacing, to the dialog, to the actual story. I have to say though, that my absolute favorite bit about the whole movie was the evolution of Nux's character. It was poetic.

I think my favorite part of the movie was Max himself. The mysteriousness of his fears, and hallucinations hooked me. I found myself imagining what it would be like to deeply regret something in that setting. To have every thought or feeling intensified by the screaming and roaring of madness. After watching the movie I felt compelled to watch the original Mad Max movies. I still haven't done that yet, but I've been trying to haha.

The first two were good. Beyond the Thunderdome felt lacking in my opinion.

Interesting fact, in case you don't know, Hugh Keays-Byrne who played Immorten Joe in Fury Road also played as Toecutter in the original Mad Max.
