Film Series: Mad Max: Fury Road IN 3D!

2015. Australia. Dir: George Miller. With Charlize Theron, Tom Hardy. 120 min.

“What a lovely day!” Witness the madness in the desert as Max returns, caught betwixt a water-hogging megalomaniac and the women who refuse to submit to his tyranny. Come delight in high-octane chases, righteously violent feminism, and electric guitars in impractical places.
