Survival is a theme that almost always makes for riveting and quality cinema. Man and nature and the journey to ensure one’s longevity is something we can all find interesting and in the new western thriller The Revenant, audiences are presented with just that. Following up with his critically acclaimed Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance), filmmaker Alejandro G. Iñárritu goes much deeper with a story that is not only told in a visually stunning way but will resonate with you long after you leave the movie theater.

Soundtrack Review: Mad Max: Fury Road
Nostalgia is alive and well in the year 2015. There are numerous film franchises from yesteryear getting the reboot/sequel treatment and this year is seeing this “phenomenon” more than ever before. One such franchise that has recently had new life injected into it is the Australian dystopian adventure film Mad Max. The series began in 1979 with a young Mel Gibson in the lead role and there were two sequels (1981 and 1985). These films saw some very gritty and some very raw action storytelling. Director George Miller has now returned 30 years later to continue the story with Mad Max: Fury Road, a high octane, no holds barred thrill ride that not only has great action and direction but a killer musical score courtesy of Mr. Tom Holkenborg (a.k.a.. Junkie XL).
