 WOW.  Okay.  Wow.

Just went to see the new Mad Max movie.  Let me say, if you see it, don't drink too much.  There's like . . . no real spot to run to the restroom.  Moves too fast.

You may have heard (or maybe not, if you avoid Reddit) that some MRA types were boycotting this movie because it tried to reach out and have a "feminist perspective" -- and you know what?  It does.  This movie, for all it's named for Max, is driven by women, is about women, and does that very very well.

Also, this movie is gorgeous.  The special effects seem mostly practical, with relatively little CG (the one big use, a sandstorm, is stunning) the cinematography is beautiful, and the editing -  I hear that George Miller picked a women to edit who hadn't ever edited an action movie before, so she used the score, the musical cues, to make cuts.  And it makes for a compellingly rhythmic, driving, visceral movie. 

It works.  Oh, it works.

Go see this.  Please go see this.  I want more action movies like this one.
