Mad Max: Fury Road - A brutal assault on all senses
Riley Keough and Nicholas Hoult star in a scene from the movie
Riley Keough and Nicholas Hoult star in a scene from the movie "Mad Max: Fury Road." The Catholic News Service classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.(Catholic News Service)
Essentially a video game on steroids, with a minimalist script that could fit on a cocktail napkin, "Mad Max: Fury Road" is a nonstop car chase through a bleak dystopian desert. Gratuitous, grisly violence; shocking, gross-out images; and an ear-splitting soundtrack pummels viewers into submission, if they haven't already sought sanctuary at the exit door.

More than 100,000 soldiers died as the Ottomans defeated the invading Allied troops, including 35,000 from far-off Australia and New Zealand.

Pitch Perfect 2: Tone deaf on culture

"Pitch Perfect 2" works best when showcasing the catchy songs and not the dialogue, which is shockingly tone deaf. The attempts at humor by belittling women, foreigners and even religion is out of tune with what should be a wholesome anthem for self-improvement and achievement.

True to form, exotic settings, stale dictums and always-murky moral values characterize "Furious 7" (Universal), the latest installment in the "Fast and Furious" series. In this go-round, cross-necklaced Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel), still the putatively Catholic paterfamilias, sets out to avenge the death of his old friend, Han (Sung Kang), killed off in a previous episode.
