Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) (mini-review++)


(If you’re curious, my review process. It’s also pasted at the end of this post. I don’t believe in Rotten Tomatoes. I just believe in me.)

(***all-purpose SPOILER ALERT*** there may be some in this review)

The mini-review:

Mad Max: Fury Road

acting 8

directing 9

writing 7

effects 10

editing 9

SW score: 43

4.5 out of 5 octopi

++ I cannot say enough good things about George Miller’s masterpiece. Charlize Theron is a force of supernature. Tom Hardy plays the gritty even keel to perfection. The makeup and effects and costume professionals deliver a legendary aesthetic. It’s just a fucking amazing movie.




(1) Shark Wrighter (SW) Score: Based on a sum of 5 sub-scores (acting, directing, writing/story, effects: cinematography &/or animation &/or effects, editing) with 1 being terrible and 10 being terrific.

(2) Octopuses (0-5 šŸ™, with 5 being fantastic and 0 being feces)

(3) Octopuses are my unquantifiable feelingā€¦not that SW score is scientificā€¦but this one is even less so

(4) ++ This optional section includes any incredibly *brilliant observations that don’t fit into simple quantitative slices like the scores and octopuses *(they are likely NOT brilliant)
