Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga [movie]

 Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga [movie] I KNOW THIS MOVIE WAS A HUGE FLOP BUT NOT BECAUSE IT WAS BAD (ALTHOUGH BOY THEY SHOULD NOT HAVE SHOW CLIPS FROM FURY ROAD AT THE END BECAUSE MAN THAT SHOWED OFF HOW MUCH BETTER THAT MOVIE LOOKED AND OOF AT THAT). SOMETHING WENT WRONG WITH THE ADVERTISING.

BUT THEY REALLY JUST SEEM LIKE THEY WERE WRITTEN SEPARATE AND READING BOTH IS NOT ALLOWED OR SOMETHING.  EVERY PRE-TEEN GIRL HAS ONE BREAST BIGGER THAN THE OTHER AND WATCHED ELEPHANT MAN.  PS. THE STORIES ARE ALL EXTREMEMLY PREMISE HEAVY AND SO A LOT SET UP A SITUATION AND JUST ABRUPTLY END, AND THAT FEELS GOOD ON ANY ONE STORY WHERE IT'S LIKE "WOW, ALL THESE POSSIBILITIES" AND Y
