Why We Women Should See ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Movie

mad-max-fury-road-8a Tomorrow I may feel a different way about this movie, but today I was inspired by characters’ bravery, the strong instinct of surviving and taking a lead in protecting innocents.

Truly, I thought this was a movie full of people with serious skin conditions which was hard for me to watch.

The movie was so intense that sometimes I felt my brains could barely keep up with the intensity of the speed in the story. Really, this is an action movie and maybe meant to be a movie for men but I felt the movie was a message to us, strong women, and our strong surviving instincts.

Film is based in desert, full of dirt, heat and endless sand.

While movie is named after main character ‘Mad Max’, I felt the true star of the movie was a Furiosa: strong leader, a female, so fearless in order to protect humanity and other women. Her right hand is artificial below her elbow. Nevertheless, this does not stop her to do really cool things.

It is a movie of super-cool massive truck driven by Furiosa, secretly taking away five wives of leader Immortan Joe. These five females are very precious to him and the mothers to bear his children. She wants to take them to this ‘Green Land’ where she grew up and she says it is a hope for these girls to survive and discontinue disgusting destiny they had with Joe. And he chases her with his soldiers trying to get his wives back.

Furiosa is strong and she is not afraid to show it. She does not play by the 1_Maxrules if rules restricted her freedom. From a loyal soldier herself, she turned to revel against her leader.

Mad Max, prisoner himself, escapes during a battle in chasing Furiosa and actually helps her to escape from Immortan Joe.

I was left inspired.

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’

***** (5 out of 5)

I have never read a single book from ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’, I went to cinema to watch the movie purely out of curiosity: everyone is talking about this movie. It was a must-see.

The movie start with quite a lot of funny moments. Towards the middle and the end of the movie, the movie became darker. The very last scene was so upsetting and dramatic, that I actually shed few tears. It was such a good end, I cannot wait for the sequel.

The is no doubt that Director Sam Taylor-Johnson did a good job: given the original story, the movie came out being elegant, good quality shots.

To be completely honest, Dakota Johnson was the obvious star of the movie: she clearly has a talent, and the right personality plus looks to play shy young student Anna. Where’s Jamie, I always thought, was the wrong choice for Christian Grey’s role. And I could not be more wrong: he played role really well: he was confident, caring, strong and protective. He played well in dramatic scenes and he was well prepared for the dominant part of the role. He was great.

Both actors did a good job portraying a couple with such an intense chemistry.

My fiancée who refused many many times to go to cinema (I quilted him into it), he loved the movie, and we both cannot wait for the movie to come out on our movie box. And the sequel.
