A group of people who feel incredibly sad by the suicide of young female actor Jodie Chesney has, in what seems to be an attempt to offer her family some form of closure, started a fund raising page on GoFundMe.com to raise money for her funeral costs. I can’t be the only one who has a weird concern for death, right? Of course, the page was up and running within half an hour, and within less than twenty four hours, the account had raised over $5,500, with over $3,000 of that already donated within the first hour of the campaign.
I think I can see why. I can sympathise with their frustrations. I can understand their sadness, but I don’t think I’m the only one who had a sickening giggle when I saw this image on my Facebook feed:
Everyone knows that when you’re a filmmaker, you can only do so much about your film if you want to make it the best it can be, so I would like to thank Steven Yeun, who is currently shooting The Usual Suspects 2 in Vancouver, for his time and effort in getting this film out to me in a quick and efficient manner. There’s been a bit of noise about the film over the past couple of weeks – quite a bit in fact – so I thought I’d check out the film to see if it lives up to all the hot air.
Im not really one for reviews that give away too much about what they’re going to say, so the following is really just to tell you what you’re in for if you watch the film.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a genre film that’s been as far-fetched as Max Max: Fury Road. A road movie with mutant four-wheelers? A film where the characters keep literally running into each other? It’s enough to get any of us to question the sanity of the people at the studio, but the amount of CGI that’s gone into this film is absolutely unbelievable. Even worse, the CGI is good. It works – it’s a film that would look and feel right at home in the world of Mad Max.
So what does Max Max: Fury Road actually have to offer?
For starters, it has Charlize Theron. When Theron came on board this project, it seemed that Mad Max: Fury Road was going to be a very different film. She’s great in the role, but this isn’t one of those ‘we’re going to make a comedy’ films, so you never have any chance of finding out what she’s going to do. She’s a terrifying and charismatic force in the film, but it’s a near 0b46394aab
