Editorial Review: Setting Mel Gibson on a sure path to superstardom, this highly acclaimed "crazy collide-o-scope", (Newsweek) of highway mayhem "cinematically defined the postapocalyptic landscape", (TV Guide). Featuring eye-popping stunts that are "electrifying and very convincing", (Variety) and "an authentically nihilistic spirit", (The Village Voice), this unforgettable actioner from director George Miller (The Road Warrior, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome and Mad Max: Fury Road) is "pure cinematic poetry", (Time).


In the ravaged near-future, a savage motorcycle gang rules the road. Terrorizing innocent civilians while tearing up the streets, the ruthless gang laughs in the face of a police force hell-bent on stopping them. But they underestimate one officer: Max (Gibson). And when the bikers brutalize Max’s best friend and family, they send him into a mad frenzy that leaves him with only one thing left in the world to live for: revenge! Also starring Joanne Samuel, Hugh Keays-Byrne (Mad Max: Fury Road) and Steve Bisley (The Great Gatsby, Red Hill), this rugged racecar of a film runs on "comic book volatility… exhilarating rowdiness and visual intensity", (The New York Times)!

Editorial Review: On the Town (BD)

New York, New York, it’s a wonderful town – especially when sailors Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra and Jules Munshin have a 24-hour shore leave to see the sights… and when those sights include Ann Miller, Betty Garrett and Vera-Ellen.

Co-directed by Kelly and Stanley Donen, based on the Broadway hit and set to an Academy Award®-winning* adaptation score, On the Town changed the landscape of movie musicals, opening filmmakers’ eyes to what could be done on location. And when brilliant location and studio production numbers are blended, it could be – as here – ebullient, up-and-at-’em perfection. The Bronx is up and the Battery’s down, but no one can be down after going On the Town.

Editorial Review: Anchors Aweigh (BD)

Given free rein in choreographing Anchors Aweigh, Gene Kelly was eager to do the unexpected. But what? "How about doing a dance with a cartoon?" collaborator and friend Stanley Donen asked. How about it indeed. Kelly's live-action fancy footwork with animated Jerry (of Tom and Jerry™) remains a milestone of movie fantasy. Frank Sinatra and Kathryn Grayson also head line this wartime tale of two sailors on leave in Hollywood. Sinatra's "I Fall in Love Too Easily," the exuberant Kelly/Sinatra "We Hate to Leave" and other highlights helped Anchors Aweigh weigh in with an Academy Award® for Best Scoring of a Musical Picture, plus four more Oscar® nominations*, including Best Picture and Actor (Kelly).

More Info...
Editorial Review: At the dawn of the PC era, 3 unlikely “cowboys,” Joe MacMillan, Gordon Clark and Cameron Howe, take personal and professional risks in the race to build a breakthrough computer. Tensions build within the group as they tread the line between visionary and fraud, genius and delusion, as their drive to do something that matters runs up against their ability to truly innovate. The series begins in the early 80s in Dallas, aka The Silicon Prairie, during the boom of the computer industry. IBM has released the first PC and is seemingly dominating the cutthroat field. MacMillan, Gordon and Cameron form an alliance at the smaller (fictional) tech company, Cardiff Giant, infiltrating it from within and using its people and resources to revolutionize the computer, shake up the competition and redeem their past personal failures. The show is not just about the ruthless rise of the computer business, or the obsessive striving for competitive advantage in the marketplace. Rather, it’s about people at war with themselves as they search for something bigger. During their search, they’ll struggle with the dark side of the human ego, the destructive power of ambition, and the often thin line separating genius from delusion.
