Meet me after the jump and I’ll let you know what I think, of the “Supergirl” pilot.  Warning – spoilers ahead…

Andy Burns On…the Mad Max Legacy

Was it not the great Tom Petty who once said that “the waiting is the hardest part?”

Of course it was. I think most, if not all of us are familiar with that sage piece of wisdom from one of Gainsville, Florida’s favourite sons. So imagine then, if you will, waiting for a brand new Mad Max film.

Imagine waiting thirty damn years.

Livin’ In The 80s: BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA

big

John Carpenter’s filmography is the very definition of “better late than never.” THE THING, PRINCE OF DARKNESS, IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS… all films that met with box office failure and critic/audience dismissal on release, only to gain appreciation decades later, recognized as bona fide classics by later audiences. It’s such a recurring trend with so much of his work, that it would almost be comical if it hadn’t left one of American cinema’s greatest directors disillusioned and walking away from the business altogether.  Such is the case with BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA.

Get Juiced For Mad Max: Fury Road: Nux & Immortan Joe On The Wednesday Run

Mad MaxSo, who’s seen Mad Max: Fury Road?

Who hasn’t seen it? Better yet, who hasn’t seen it but plans to?

Admittedly, I haven’t’ made my way to the theater to catch the latest installment of Max Rockatansky’s adventurous forays through the Australian post-apocalyptic wasteland – but I plan to – and soon!

Not only has the film been getting rave reviews from fans and critics alike, but let’s face it: Mad Max is one of the classic pop-culture characters of all time. Four films and one amazing Tina Turner song. That’s legendary pop culture, that is!

But it seems that Mad Max: Fury Road has done something that the previous three films in the series was not as easily able to do: give fans a plethora of characters with intriguing back stories. And that’s where comic books come into the picture.

Follow me after the jump for the scoop on Mad Max: Fury Road and the origins of two of that film’s most interesting characters in Mad Max: Fury Road: Nux & Immortan Joe #1!
