I love it when someone comes up with a new word which is a clever mashup of a couple of other words. Yesterday I used one of those words and did the activity that it describes. I masturdated, with a d. What on earth is that? It’s a solo date. I took myself off to the movies to see Mad Max: Fury Road. I wanted to see the movie but didn’t feel like waiting or trying to organise someone else to go see it with me so off I went on my masturdate.

The movie, while not exactly an intellectually challenging film, is fantastic. If you want action with style and very little let-up then this is your film. Nicholas Hoult is an actor that I’ve long admired who makes really good, interesting film choices and he really got into this role. His character is full to the brim with crazy but Nicholas does it will. It would be an easy role to really ham up but he kept it just to the right level of bonkers.
