Mad Max: Fury Road: At first I honestly didn't want to watch Mad Max because it looked really violent. However, after reading several reviews I decided to give it a chance. While there was some violence, it wasn't over the top. However, what I was most looking forward to was the back story of Max...what was his history...how did he stay alive and independent for so long...why was he willing to help save the wives? I was also looking forward to how the city initially developed and the hierarchy of things. Unfortunately, all of my questions were left unanswered. Perhaps if I had watched the original movie I would have more insight? Ultimately, I would recommend this to movie goers who are looking for 95% action, 5% plot.
Jurassic World: Ok, I'll admit it...I wasn't a big fan of the original movie initially. When I got older and watched it again, I fell in love with it! In fact, I loved the whole trilogy and even bought it for John last Christmas. I was really excited to watch Jurassic World and I was not disappointed! Great story arc with ample action. I just adore Chris Pratt. His character was the best, followed closely by Jake Johnson's character. There is something for everyone in this movie! Overall, a great movie for the family with action, humor and a touch of romance!
