In this movie Mad Max translates to Mad Max. Literally.

BIG fan of the OT, especially The Road Warrior.
MG was never better.


Hopefully will get to the Cineplex in the next couple of days....

If you don't like this movie I will report every post you make from here on out to the mods. I will become a professional victim.

On the real though, Fury Road is shoulder to shoulder with many aspects of all three of the trilogy.

I agree. The entire stunt team should land an Oscar for this one. Wow. The stunts blew my mind. Rare is it these days that a film relies so little on CG. They did use some, but it was very constrained and not really noticeable. THAT'S how it's done, Hollywood!

The more I think about it, and the more I talk it up to my friends, the more I realize I'm going to have to go back for a second viewing. That is RARE for me to want to see a movie twice at the cinema instead of just waiting for the home video release.

Anybody here seen it twice yet? Some critics are saying it's even better the second time around. That is awesome.

Clint Eastwood (talking to an empty chair), Chuck Norris, John Voight, a lot of those old action heroes are real quacks IRL

I loved this movie, it was edge of your seat excitement. I'll see it again at home, with frame interpolation.

God, movie theaters 24hz sucks. I say it every time, but hot damn, what a waste. So much action going on, that the motion blur makes it like you're watching the movie with cataracts on during the crucial parts.

I avoid 3-D added in post, but in this case I may have to go back and see it that way. And sit near the front.

Welp, I already paid for the 3D blu ray. Now I wait. This will be a tough seat to get in my theater when this baby lands on my doorstep. Can't wait to crank this bad boy up to reference and enjoy the ride.

I was trying to remember the last movie that I wanted to right back in line for, and then it came to me: Star Wars - what, 38 years ago?

Your assessment does it justice:

It's a perfect fit in the existing series bridging sequel with reboot in all the right ways. Every single character begs for more attention but you just don't have time to stop and smell the diesel soaked roses. Along the way you get glimpses into the maelstrom we know as Max and long time fans don't have to ask how he got here. Like previous installments we get to see how the post collapse survivors build new enclaves and how they are mutants of what we know as normal. You can see they've done the tell, so that we 'member who we was and where we came from. Miller's parlance is on full display here both verbally and visually.

The action starts at 11 and puts a brick on the gas pedal shortly after. Just when you think things peak every stake gets raised again. The sounds of the vehicles are actually musical instruments accompanying the stellar score and never once does that get monotonous. It's a silverback gorilla parting the jungle vegetation, pounding his chest, and asserting dominance from start to finish. That's just the audio.

I lost track of the times I asked myself if I really saw what I thought I saw. Total top tier sequences expertly carried out with some so insane I don't even know if they were CG or real. The best part is you can actually see the action unlike other modern action movies. If the devil is in the details, Hail Satan! He's done fantastic work here.
Oh, what a day! What a lovely day!

Absolutely ..


What always amazed me was "Mad Max" was done on a $350K budget ..


I still think Mel should have been offered a cameo .. with the Interceptor now that I'm thinking about it .. a wet dream of a car if there ever was one ..


"Fast and Furious" franchise ain't got nothin'

Put it this way, Max wouldn't get knocked to the side like Hulk did Loki because he won't be running his trap.
