MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ truly is the perfect summer blockbuster

What a lovely day indeed. Confession time: “Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome” is my favorite Mad Max movie. I’m sorry, but it had to be said. Perhaps it’s the expanded world or my love of Hollywood divas that I would of course pick the one starring Tina Turner. Now, “Mad Max: Fury Road” has certainly taken […]
