Interesting read. Lots of positive comments about Fury Road not only from the main article but also in the comments. I wont see the other two movies until cable/on demand, but based on feedback from others I've talked to said JP was a rehash of the first film and no one I know even cares about TG. I like both of those series a lot, but TG's plot sounds like a convoluted mess.

Yeah, it links in with what I've heard of the other movies - mostly that Jurassic World was too much CGI and patronising to women, and that nobody went to see Genisys, lol

Of course that's what you heard when Sensitive Joss Whedon told you so on twitter based on an out of context scene months before release. Don't let that slow you down. We already know you're the local Kool Aid drinker.

I'm not on Twitter ... no, it was more the themes where the female lead is a useless bitch, and there's overtones that her cold executive-ness is because she 'needs the love of a good man' or 'must have babies to be happy'. I get enough of that crap from my Mum, without having to get it from a film, too.

And yet you haven't actually seen the movie. Leadcounsel? Is that you?
