      Read somewhere (AICN probably) that George Miller is tweaking the storyline somewhat and there's not going to be strict continuity with the Mad Max sequels. Plus, there will be "water wars" in the...

      Yeah, I've very reluctantly come to the conclusion that government-funded human spaceflight in the US is a luxury we can no longer afford. There's a very interesting school of thought that maintains...

      Liked it, didn't love it.

      Terry Gilliam meets the Wachowskis meets Old Boy meets Frank Miller, kinda.

      Distinctive film, for sure.
