reviews for Pitch Perfect 2 and Mad Max: Fury Road

I just saw Mad Max: Fury Road and I loved it. I so loved it. I enjoyed myself silly and even if the dialogue was weak, there was very little of it to begin with, so it didn’t drag the whole thing down. But the simplicity and minimalism of its narrative element emphasised the allegorical tone of the whole thing, albeit a very brutal and violent one, that I was amazed at how George Miller made it all work.

Those action scenes, though. Wow. And Tom Hardy is love. Charlize Theron is love. What a tremendous cast!

Take that mask off of Tom Hardy's face! You do NOT cover that gorgeous face!

I saw it on a Dolby Atmos theater on regular screens and I want to go back and watch it on 3D this time because, I bet it is going to be even more epic on that level. The music was just a little too much; everything was over-scored, but it worked well on the action sequences, but in the quieter moments, it could have used with less orchestra. But over-all, what a movie! Amazing. Really amazing!

I also saw Pitch Perfect 2 and while all my friends loved it, I was disappointed. I probably was expecting too much but it really felt like a lot of the same shticks all over again. It didn’t feel fresh or new or bigger or better. It just felt like a bad imitation of the first.

But that’s just me.

    • I found the first one refreshing and original and unexpected. I never really watched Glee so I was able to enjoy Pitch Perfect because it was new to me. I thought it was well done.

      The sequel, though, no. It wasn’t.

      Mad Max: Fury Road, though, is all manners of awesome.

      Thanks for the comment. You are the first person I know who didn’t like Pitch Perfect.
