This summer the Mad Max franchise finally saw it’s long-awaited fourth installment, starring Tom Hardy as Mad Max and Charlize Theron as Imperator Furiosa. Kidnapped by the War Boys as a blood bag, Max ends up strapped to the car of Nux, the War Boy using his blood, on the journey to Gas Town. The action begins when Furiosa and her armored rig veer off course, just as Joe, leader of the citadel, realizes that his breeder women are missing. With troops from the Citadel, Gas Town, and the Bullet Farm in hot pursuit, fully stacked with armories worth of ammunition and heavy metal guitar accompaniment, Max manages to escape from Nux. He joins forces with Furiosa to save the women and help them reach their destination while fighting off the violent attacks. Strap in for two hours of adrenaline, explosions, and heavy metal.

8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.

The hilarious story of a man and his teddy bear companion returned this summer with a sequel. It opens with John (Mark Wahlberg) recently divorced from Lori (unfortunately no Mila Kunis in this one), while Ted (Seth McFarlane) has married his girlfriend Tami-Lynn. With the marriage growing stale, they decide to adopt. The process then leads the State to determine that he is legally property, not a person. As a result, his marriage to Tami-Lynn is annulled and he loses his job. John suggests that they take his case to court, and they receive a pro-bono lawyer named Samantha (Amanda Seyfried). The rest of the movie follows the legal struggle to restore Ted’s personhood, while John and Samantha obviously fall in love.
