Mad Max: Fury Road (2015): “Seeing that is pretty great and empowering.”

“My profession is in engineering and I saw Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) and I like the character Furiosa played by Charlize Theron. She is like a mechanic grease monkey type and that struck me, because it’s pretty awesome to see a female character who is a bad ass for her knowledge although she had kind of scrappy fighting skills too, but anyway.”

“Seriously, Mad Max: Fury Road is the only film that I can think about at this moment and watching that was an adrenaline rush to me. I actually saw it before I went to work and I was amped up for the whole time when I was at my job. So that was pretty cool.”

“Maybe it is a bit cheesy, but for someone to emulate this role and even though that world is not real. It’s still like something that you don’t see every day, especially a female protagonist in a film that’s titled Mad Max: Fury Road. So, seeing that is pretty great and empowering and it just made me feel like anything is possible. Even though, it takes place in a totally different world and realm. Even if you have one arm.” – Sara
