'Mad Max: Fury Road' Named Best Film by National Board of Review

'Mad Max: Fury Road' Named Best Film by National Board of Review:

This was unexpected..

This is how VARIETY sums up the surprise today:
It was an unexpected victory for the summer tentpole starring Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron, which received favorable reviews when it opened in May, but is seen as an awards season longshot. So far, most of the advanced buzz in this year’s Oscars race has focused on such indies as “Spotlight,” “Brooklyn” and “Carol” versus the box office goliath “The Martian.”

The MARTIAN was good. But not as good as I expected–even with the ABBA music..
