Highly Suspect Reviews: Mad Max: Fury Road

Mad Max returns, now played by Tom Hardy, in a cross-apocalypse-country road chase of a film that never lets up for a minute. Of course, Max isn’t REALLY the main character this time around. The film introduces Furiosa (Charlize Theron), a worthy equal to Max who is driving a battletruck full of escaped slave brides, and their former master has brought out pretty much the entirety of wacky death racers on the road in pursuit.

Can the two desert warriors stand up against overwhelming odds? Can George Miller, after all this time, actually make a good new film in the Max series? Can the Unusual Suspects keep from SQUEEing all the way through the review. The answer lies with Beau, Chris, Brian, Joe and Sarah.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
