This might have been the greatest film of all time and finally justified Hollywood's obsession with creating way-after-the-fact-sequels.

Why can't the Avengers have been this rad???

I love that they actually made that thing (and most of the vehicles in this movie) instead of relying on CGI.

There was the one shitty CGI shot when the War Rig rolled and the guitar flew at the screen.

That, among several other shots, weren't shitty, but clearly supposed to be watched in 3D.

Also because it's how he talks but Tom hardy was doing the bane voice the whole time, I kept leaning to my friend going "the fire rises mr. Wayne"

Max doesn't sound like a jolly grandpa once through the entire movie.

Yeah, no. You're wrong on this Kevin. And I wish you were right. Nothing would have pleased be more to hear more bane voice. Instead he was doing a Mel Gibson impersonation for half the film, and the other half he had a croaking frog voice because he was so beat up and thirsty.

It has made $233 million so far. Sequel seems pretty likely now.

I had my brains fucked out through my eyes and ears by this movie today. Its fucking amazing. It's like a 2 hour long moving heavy metal album cover and I wanted it to never stop. Every shot was so dense with detail and craft. I can't wait til it comes out on blue ray with making-of shit and so I can just pause and examine some of it. I very likely will go see again before it's out of theaters. So many great things. I re-watched the original three before this having not seen them in decades and this is just a perfect follow up. It's The Road Warrior, an Australian exploitation movie but with a 200mil budget, just one giant chase scene. It could have ended 30min in and I would have been satisfied but it just kept fucking me in all the right ways. It's the film equivalent of snorting an entire 8ball of pure coke while riding a dinosaur that's riding a rocket.

If you don't see this movie in the theater you are doing yourself a great disservice.


EDIT after reading some more of the thread: Hardy's accent does shift around but with something like 20 lines of dialogue of which most are grunts I don't think one can judge and who cares anyway.

Is there really any good reason you are not out seeing this movie right now? Spoilers: There isn't.

If you don't see this movie in the theater then you are a piece of shit.

I feel confident with that statement.

Theaters add literally nothing to a movie viewing experience anymore. Literally nothing.

EDIT: I generally agree, or I did until this movie. This movie has re-sold me on theaters. Just see this fucking movie.

If you really think there is nothing better about seeing a film in a theater then so be it. All I can say is this is the best theater experience I have had in about 10 years. I don't really do theaters but I plan on seeing this for the third time next week.

Went to my second viewing last night. Roped 5 guys from my work into going. They all loved it.

It was nice seeing it again so I could take some time to look at the little details that make this movie so much better. Seriously you need to see this in a theater.

For those that have this interview with George miller is pretty interesting.

Someone did a cool 'grindhouse' trailer for Fury Road. Here it is.

Rewatching this again right now. It's probably the best movie ever made.

Mad Maxi Pad: Furiosa Road was like WITNESS ME! And then I was like MEDIOCRE!

This is the worst Mad Max movie but it was still alright I suppose. For the amount of practical effects they used this still managed to look more cartoonish than anything in the first 3 movies. The best part about this was all the makeup, prosthesis, props and costumes. All the actual character design was amazing. All of the actual action was lackluster. Lots of things blew up unspectacularly, if you blink you literally missed Joe dying, I hated all the awful color saturation they used. Hey guys, if the movie is orange it's day time and if it's blue it's night time. Get it? I hate that they went out of their way to show that the big sandstorm was going to be this massive threat by having everybody brace and cover up for it and then they just had Max climbing around on the outside of war boy's car like it was a light rainshower. War boy's face turn was stupid as was his Iron Giant Superman sacrifice at the end. The first big chase action scene was a lot better than the one in the finale, or maybe the movie had just worn out its welcome by then. They should have cut about a half hour out of the middle of this movie out completely and it would have been a lot better.
