Trailer Spotlight: Mad Max Fury Road

Is anyone else baffled that the man who brought us the first Mad Max installments is also responsible for the Happy Feet films? Consider me shocked because I had no idea a director could put together films so completely opposite of one another. 

Let me address something …

Ok, so there was an ulterior motive getting this up on the blog. One, I didn’t post a single entry the entire month of March – my apologies! (got really busy at work with hiring 3 part-time employees and working from home on some projects etc.) Two, I wanted to let all of my 5 readers out there know that I have now set up a Blogging Calendar of sorts and will be doing my best to post 3 times a week. In an effort to create not only more interest but to give everyone a reason to tune in every week because there will be new stuff all the time. Three, because I missed blogging and I just felt compelled to start April off right regardless of what I would use to jumpstart everything again.

Back to Mad Max…

I’ve caught glimpses of Mad Max movies in the past, but they’ve never been all that successful at pulling me in enough to sit down and watch them. This isn’t to say that they aren’t good movies, I know that there are plenty of people out there willing to give them props as some of the better post-apocalyptic films of years past. With the release of this trailer, it sparks enough interest for me that I’m willing to give the first Mad Max a view just to see why anyone would bother doing a remake, much less the original director. (except, if you think about it, what’s that say about the director’s first go at it?) The frantic nature of the first half of the trailer is not really my cup of tea but as it winds down and the voiceover coming from (I’m assuming) Mad Max himself seems to slow things down just enough to show that there’s more going on here than just the visual orgasm on screen.

What about you? Does this trailer make you want to see Mad Max: Fury Road? What about my comments on the blog? Does that excite you or could you really care less that I’ll be making a better effort to get new stuff posted more often!? It always helps to hear from the readers so please leave me a comment below and let me know!
