Mad Max Fury Road Review. Hugh Keays-Byrne as the diabolical Immortan Joe.

Mad Max Fury Road Review

Mad Max Fury Road Review When it comes to Science Fiction movies these days, those that aren’t expected to be box-office hits often end up doing well. Movies such as Looper and The Matrix are good examples. The same can be said of Mad Max: Fury Road. The movie, directed by George Miller, has been in development hell for years. I still remember looking at its IMDB page back in the late 90’s. Fans were excited, but those who had not...

I dare say thanks to SciFiEmpire.net everybody got a high-resolution picture to pick their bone with. The controversy about the ligthsaber has hardly abated since the release of the trailer. Most think it is too gimmicky. After Episode 1 and 2 introduced new types of sabers it is hard to get around that argument. Many hope Star Wars Episode 7: The Force...
