Mad Max: Fury Road (2015), dir. George Miller - This movie is everything. I have nothing to add to the mountains of meta I've seen on tumblr and elsewhere (though I did just read another good post about it from [personal profile] metaphortunate). I've actually seen this twice--once in Seattle, and here again in Tokyo. The sound was messed up in Seattle, but the projection was perfect in Tokyo, and we were sitting in the center of the theater so the movie was just constantly coming right at our faces. The camerawork, the costuming, the music, the story, the everything. Perfection.

Spy (2015), dir. Paul Feig - This movie was also amazing in a totally different way. It's hilarious--I haven't laughed so hard since I saw The Heat, and at several points I was nearly crying with laughter. What I loved about it aside from the fact that Melissa McCarthy's character Susan is a total BAMF was how the movie never condescends to her, even if some of the other characters do. Also, Jason Statham is fucking hilarious playing every character he's ever played except even more intense, and Jude Law and Rose Byrne were also hilarious and awesome. I would totally watch an entire franchise of these movies, no lie.

I've seen Fury Road, ahem, more than twice. I want to see it again before it leaves theatres. And then again when it comes to the dollar theatre.

Spy is on my list-to-watch. I've seen plenty of great reviews, so I'm in.

I would 100% watch a whole franchise of Spy. It was SO FUNNY. Melissa McCarthy is so epic, and Jason Statham was hysterical.
