Chad and Christina of HellaCon have returned!
Listen to the four of us vent our thoughts and opinions on “Jurassic World,” “Mad Max: Fury Road,” and “Inside Out.” We give no mercy and take no prisoners.
We’ve been excited to have these guys back since the final second on their original episode (#29: “The One Where We Talk Nerdy.) As avid aficionados of the silver screen, we were interested to hear what Chad and Christina had to say about these three ground-breaking films. We also had a LOT to say ourselves.
“Mad Max” is the long-awaited brainchild of George Miller, the fourth in a long series of action, fire, and blood. Tom Hardy has taken over for Mel Gibson and Charlize Theron has stepped up as the formidable Furiosa. This film scored such high esteem for its minimal use of CGI, stunning landscapes, and high-speed races that will rip all viewers to the edge of their seats.
“Jurassic World,” the hulking older brother of the original “Jurassic Park” (and its disappointing off-springs), brought in a record-breaking $208.8 million to the box office domestically its first weekend. It’s the sexy-Chris-Pratt-meets-ferocious-monsters mashup we’ve been dying to see.
“Inside Out” is the first in a long run of lightly to greatly disappointing movies from Pixar (looking at you, Cars 2.) The story centers around Riley, an 11-year-old girl in the throes of a move from Michigan to San Francisco. Her five main feelings- Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear, and Disgust- dominate the majority of the film. You will laugh a lot, but you will DEFINITELY also cry.
