I spent the hour before I saw Mad Max: Fury Road trying to convince myself that it would suck. Not because I actually thought it would suck, but because every review I’d seen up to that point treated it like Jesus himself had come down from heaven to make the world’s most perfect movie. The hype machine was on full blast, and I didn’t want to inflate my expectations beyond what was reasonable for fear that, even if Fury Road was good, I would be disappointed by it. Because it couldn’t possibly be that good. Right?
Add my voice to the chorus: Mad Max: Fury Road is a bonkers masterpiece.
