Not shown above: a passionate love story for the ages.

This week on the podcast, those darn Gabbing Geeks discussed how to fix disappointing stories.  They also discussed pop culture mothers after Mother’s Day, but I don’t have anything to add there.  They also discussed feminist action heroes, but that might be the work of a future column.

Another (Spoiler Free) Review Of Mad Max: Fury Road

madmax

I think anyone who reads this site and pays attention to bylines knows my thoughts on nostalgia.  Heck, I wrote a whole piece last week saying horrible things about Krull more or less for that very reason.  I wasn’t planning on seeing the new Mad Max at all for a number of reasons, ranging from not being a Mad Max fan to being generally against remakes.    But the reviews started coming in very positive, and Ryan and Watson were both raving about it, and hey, Ryan may like Krull, but Watson sure didn’t (he likes Clue), so that means there’s a variety of opinion out there.

So, I went.  And I loved it.  Further SPOILER-FREE comments after the cut.

Epsiode 7, the first Disney produced Star Wars movie since the $4B buyout of Lucasfilm, is set to drop in December.  That is really only the beginning of Disney’s master plan to squeeze every nickle out of leverage the brilliance of the Star Wars universe.  As expected, hoped for, and dreamed of, Disney plans to make their theme parks home to even more Star Wars attractions.
