<gasp> Are you saying you never watch "Road Warrior"?

Watch it, its a classic. =)
I even liked thunderdome.
However the original Mad Max is quite strange, and I didnt think it was as good as the next two.

Please tell me you *have* watched Blade Runner.
If not I'm buying it for you.

I saw blade runner for the first time last month...passed out half way thru...and Ridley Scott is one of my favorite directors. I'll have to try again.

Road warrior would be a good first watch. Coincidentally, I watched it with the wife a week before we saw Fury Road. Surprisingly she liked both.

Fun ride!



Insomnia got me a few weeks ago, couldn't find anything on so I bought it as well. It is over the top and visually awesome, im looking forward to seeing it on bluray 3d version.


These movies are so out there you probably could go with out watch previous ones but they are worth watching, except Thunderdome, its a piece of crap. Fury Road is one long chase, costume craziness, crazy vehicles, to me its just good fun start to finish

For 1985 (age 14) Beyond Thunderdome was Awesome!!! Nowadays we have the Octagon but then it was step into the Thunderdome. My friends and I still make references to Thunderdome to this day.

I'll concede The Road warrior was a masterpiece, the Best of the trilogy and should be considered one of the best action movies of the 80's.

Any Motorhead fans Bad Magic is Sweet!!! When I first heard it on one of my friends Klipsch Icons it sounded decent enough to justify buying the cd. Once I got it home and played it thru the 212s the difference in presentation was night and day. I could understand every word Lemmy was singing, well almost every word.
For $10 bucks its well worth buying.

I didn't know that they had added this so really good information, thanks for correcting this.

I decided to bring 6x Noesis 210RT to RMAF, 4x standard black (lrc and left rear) and then two in Ferrari red for the right, rear, in the walk way into room and one to place right inside the door for people see as they walk by. A pair of Captivator 1400 for sub duty.
