Mad Max returns in Fury Road

After an absence of three decades Mad Max returns on 15 May 2015 with Mad Max: Fury Road.

From director George Miller, originator of the post-apocalyptic genre and mastermind behind the legendary Mad Max franchise, comes Mad Max: Fury Road, a return to the world of Road Warrior, Max Rockatansky.

Haunted by his turbulent past, Mad Max believes the best way to survive is to wander alone. Nevertheless, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by an elite Imperator, Furiosa. They are escaping a Citadel tyrannised by the Immortan Joe, from whom something irreplaceable has been taken. Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the high-octane Road War that follows.
Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) assumes the role of Max Rockatansky from Mel Gibson. Supporting cast includes Oscar winner Charlize Theron (Monster, Prometheus), Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: Days of Future Past) and Rosie-Huntington-Whiteley (Transformers: Dark of the Moon).

The official full length trailer for Series 8 of the revived Doctor Who has been released by the BBC. And for me there’s no excitement at all being generated for Peter Capaldi’s first adventures as the Twelfth Doctor. This is not good. Not good at all…

I’m the Doctor. I’ve lived for over 2000 years. I’ve made many mistakes. It’s about time I did something about that.

Quite often when a depressive mood descends upon me I’ll take myself to safe places and do familiar actions. This means that I can pretty much function on automatic and don’t have to devote excessive little grey cell power at a time when I feel completely fucked in the brain department.
