Fired up The Road Warrior tonight and there are many parallels but Fury Road is a total evolution in scope and detail. We need more. At least I, need more.
Supposedly the next couple are in legal limbo due to WB not paying bonuses and one would be a Furiosa centered tale. All in all, you here know this, but Tom Hardy fully captured Max.
Anyways, Fury Road is primo audio. I can't wait to see it in 4k when my plasma dies from some weird Final Destination accident that wasn't setup by me.
Speaking of 4k what tv/brand is top of the heap at the moment? I've got a soft spot for Sony due to the three that I own they are total workhorses, not showing any sign of slowing up meanwhile my Sammy LED 4k has purple spots all over the screen.
I'd be in the market for a 60 inch. Seems like LG has made some waves.

OLED has the best PQ imo. It has the deepest blacks, best angle of view, very high contrast ratio, and decent gamut. And doesn't have to resort to tricks like FALD.
There are other factors to consider though... like price and burn-in. Prices have come down in the last couple years on OLED TVs, but there's still a premium to be paid for this technology over other LCD/LED-based techs, esp. if you go with a Sony. Regardless of what some salesman may try to tell you, there are only two
technologies for new direct-view TVs at the moment. And they are OLED and LCD/LED. The other techs (like QLED, for example) are largely about branding, and variations in the back-lighting on the LCD/LED models.
Burn-in and color drift are probably still issues though on OLED. I went with a Sammy LCD/LED over plasma for my last TV, because I wanted a display that was versatile enough to be used for a wide variety of applications, including web-browsing and computing. I liked the PQ better on plasma. And tried out several different floor models from different mfrs, before finally settling on a Sammy LED. My main concern with the plasma TVs was the potential for burn-in.
If movies and TV viewing are your principal app though, then I think OLED is worth considering. I believe LG is the only panel mfr btw. And Sony gets the panels for their OLED TVs from them. So the LGs may have slightly newer and better panel designs than the Sonys. I like the PQ better on the 55" LG than on the 65" though. And I'm not sure exactly why. Maybe it has something to do with the size or density of the pixels. Some of the processing and other junk may be a little better on the Sonys though. I'm not really sure about that though.
If you get an OLED, I'd plan on calibrating it frequently. Maybe as often as every 3 or 6 months, if you use it alot, to compensate for any potential color drift. That might be something you'd want to learn how to do yourself, rather than paying the Geek Squad or an ISF calibrator big bucks to do the same job. The hardware for this can be rented pretty cheaply. Decent color analyzers are available for only a few hundred bucks though. The analyzers also need to be calibrated from time to time for the most accurate results btw.
I still do most of my calibration by eye, using a 6500K fluorescent bulb and some custom patterns designed to match the bulb's specific color characteristics. It's not the best way to go. But it is one of the cheapest for someone like me on a very tight budget. My TV is just Rec. 601/709 though. So I'm still kind of in the stone age. Calibrating newer models with support for high dynamic range gamma curves (HDR/Rec. 2100) and wider color gamuts (Rec. 2020) is, I assume, a bit more involved.
