Mad Max: Fury Road. Almost literally non-stop action from start to finish. Already topped Avengers as the best summer movie and it's going to be hard for another film to beat that title for me. Some of the best action I've seen in years and hardly any CGI. Great flick.

Also this is at 99% at Rotten Tomatoes with 90 reviews! Holey moley Batman!

Mad Max Fury Road is probably the greatest modern restarting of a classic 80s property of all time. All others should be ashamed of themselves.

Movie was balls out. Cinematography, mind blowing. Stunts, jaw dropping.

I saw Tomorrowland.

I really wanted to love this but it just sat there. Some good things--some good bits but ultimately a long journey to nowhere. Very frustrating. After giving as a glimpse of Tomorrowland it's a long journey to get there--and when they do it's essentially deserted and a bummer. The voiceover stuff at the start tries to be too clever and none of it really adds up to much. The big reveal of a rocket ship in the Eiffel Tower just comes off as too over-the-top and implausible to pass the sniff test. Really? Edison was traveling to other dimensions? Really? Add to that is the big buildup of the creepy automated people who ultimately vanish and don't play a role in the climax and a cloyingly ham-fisted message and you've got a recipe for disaster. So frustrating.

I saw Jurassic World the other day and was completely enthralled! It was such a fun flick, and I absolutely love the ending! Of course, I love this franchise, so am a little bias, but MAN was it cool! Any time I leave a movie and my face can literally NOT stop smiling is tops in my books!

I agree, Jurassic World was excellent!! Its right up there with the first Jurassic Park! Just to see such a park exist! I couldn't expect any better! I really hope they make more! I agree with the ending too! Lol!

Well, it looks like FF flopped hard. With audiences and critics. Maybe now, FOX will finally sell the rights back to Marvel and we will finally get a proper Dr.Doom.

Has anyone seen this film? Wondering if it's really as bad as they say.

Unless Fox has done so much brand damage that not even Disney/Marvel would attempt a 3rd reboot within the next 10 years.

I saw a pirated version, for ... well, let's call it educational purposes. The first 45 minutes or so are OK if viewed as a generic sci-fi movie. There is no FF feeling at all. Johnny is charmless, Sue is annoying and Ben is mostly absent. Then it gradually deteriorates into an orgy of bad writing and directing. The fight against Doom is not just awful. It completely disrupts the pace of the movie. It's like having dinner, and after a perfectly adequate soup, when you expect the main course, you skip immediately to dessert -- which happens to be a cold, stale turd.
