May 15th in the US, rest of dates here (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1392190/releaseinfo?ref_=tt_ov_inf+)

Empire 5/5 (http://www.empireonline.com/reviews/reviewcomplete.asp?FID=137658)
Quote
Imagine a movie where Tom Hardy is the point of calm. Max’s re-enfranchisement is a triumph of barking-mad imagination, jaw-dropping action, crackpot humour, and acting in the face of a hurricane.

The Telegraph: 5/5 (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/film/mad-max-fury-road/review/)
Quote
Miller's long-delayed return to the Mad Max series, which has its European premiere at the Cannes Film Festival later this week, is nothing less than a Krakatoan eruption of craziness. The director last visited this world in Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome in 1985, but this feels more like a spiritual sequel to The Road Warrior, the far superior 1981 instalment.

TimeOut: 5/5 (http://www.timeout.com/us/film/mad-max-fury-road)
Quote
Utterly embarrasses a generation of Hollywood blockbuster

Variety (http://variety.com/2015/film/markets-festivals/mad-max-review-tom-hardy-charlize-theron-1201491726/)

Even the 'Fast and Furious' movies look like Autopia test drives next to George Miller's powerhouse reimagining of his iconic 'Mad Max' franchise.

In a better world the conversation around Mad Max: Fury Road would be all about how much George Miller, a true master of cinema, deserves the Best Director Oscar.

When I first saw the trailer I thought the movie looked like ass, but shit has my curiosity been piqued.

I read a lift-out quote stating the film had "narrative heft" but couldn't figure out if that was a positive? When my mother and myself are watching a movie our catchphrase is "too much plot". A lot of movies have too much plot. Does Mad Max: Fury Road have too much plot? This is what I'm worried about.

Mad Max: Fury Road has an intricate and complex plot full of emotions and deeper meaning that is told entirely through souped-up rage machines being crashed together while dirty people scream at each other.

And the best part, as previously mentioned, is that it ruffled some feathers due to the strong female cast and characterization. Meaning as the movie ascends into the the pantheon of jizzing internet nerds, #gamergaters and MRA won't be be attending the wankfests.

Quote
Author Aaron Clarey admits he has not seen the film yet, but his self-proclaimed "spidey sense" noticed that Charlize Theron "talked a lot during the trailers" for the film, and he said Tom Hardy only seemed to have cameo appearances. "Charlize Theron's character barked orders to Mad Max," writes Clarey on Return of Kings. "Nobody barks orders to Mad Max."

Clarey did not like reading reviews commending Theron for many of her action scenes, nor did he appreciate the news that the movie's director, George Miller, asked Vagina Monologues author Eve Ensler to consult with the five actresses who play sex slaves in the film. (Theron's character plays a road warrior fighting to lead the child-bearing women to safety.)

Clarey writes that he is concerned "men in America and around the world are going to be duped by explosions, fire tornadoes, and desert raiders into seeing what is guaranteed to be nothing more than feminist propaganda, while at the same time being insulted AND tricked into viewing a piece of American culture ruined and rewritten right in front of their very eyes."

The movie — like the original Mad Max trilogy — was filmed in Australia and is directed and co-written by Miller, who is Australian. (Fury Road was also filmed in Namibia and South Africa.)

Dialog takes a backseat to the action, but that's a very innaccurate estimation. And just like Rumbler said, there are so many emotions and deep moments expressed through other means. So it's not a completely brain dead action flick.

Ok weird question: is there anything overtly sexual in the movie? Or, is a good deal of the movie like that?

The reason I'm asking is because the only place I can go see it is a theater in Bahrain and they tend to censor sexual bits. Thankfully they tend to leave glorified violence in.

Pretty close. Every preview has been upfront that this isn't a typical movie. The entire thing is one long car chase. Think "Death Proof on Steroids."

It's not like the other Mad Max films.

ditch your brother and go. this shit is the real deal.

I just got back from it, and it took half an hour to come down from the adrenaline. There’s a real story in this movie, and lots of political messaging, but it’s less overt than these entitled MRA shitbags are subjecting us to on their own.

This movie is awesome and I’m buying the blu-ray. It’s every bit as good or better than Road Warrior, and thoroughly washes away the stink of Thunderdome.

http://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2015/05/tom-hardy-mad-max-apology
Quote
When Tom Hardy finally sat down and saw Mad Max: Fury Road, after reportedly spending more than 100 days filming the post-apocalyptic action film in Namibia, the English actor realized that he owed the film’s director, George Miller, an apology.

And for whatever reason, the actor didn’t say he was sorry until Thursday’s press conference at the Cannes Film Festival, when a journalist triggered one particular memory for him.

After being asked what Hardy’s very first thought was after viewing Miller’s desert-scape masterpiece, the actor surprised the press by revealing, “I owe George an apology for being so myopic. . . . That was my first thought.”

Coincidentally enough, Hardy, who plays the film’s minimally verbal title character, suggested that his issue with the filmmaker while shooting had been communication.

“The most frustrating thing for me or the hardest part [of filming] was trying to know what George wanted me to do at any given minute on a minute-by-minute basis, so I could fully [execute] his vision,” Hardy said of working with Miller, who directed the first three films in the franchise. “But because [Miller was] orchestrating such a huge vehicle literally in so many departments, and because his signature is on every single detail [of the film] and because all of the [parts] in the vehicle are just moving, there is just motion.”

In a room full of journalists, Hardy solemnly continued, “I have to apologize to you because I got frustrated and there is no way that George could have explained what he conceived in the sand while we were out there [filming]. And because of the due diligence that was required to make everything safe and to make everything that was incredibly complex so simple—which is what I saw—which is a relentless barrage of complexities simplified in a fairly linear story . . . I knew [Miller] was brilliant, but I didn’t know how brilliant until I saw it.”

That Vanity Fair article notes than when Miller showed it to Mel he got giddy almost immediately and started molesting him he was so happy at it all. (I may be embellishing slightly.)

And Miller was like for all of Mel's problems, one thing still to trust him on is Mad Max.

Miller and McCarthy found during the writing process for Fury Road that they had enough story material for two additional scripts. One of these, entitled Mad Max: Furiosa, has already been completed, and Miller hopes to film it after the release of Fury Road.

In May 2015, Miller told Wired magazine, "Should [Mad Max: Fury Road] be successful, I’ve got two other stories to tell."

Hard to believe that this was from a 70-year-old director who hasn't made an action movie in 30 years. He put 99.9% of the action movies from the past decade to absolute shame.

no sex scenes but the women don't wear much. there was one scene where they were all clothed and washing themselves. that's as far as anything went.

You're forgetting the nude "trap" woman that was part of the old lady brigade?

Also @ Shaka: YASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. I went on your recommendation. I need to go back and watch it again (maybe in a theater again) because I had to pee every 5-10 mins after eating a quick lunch and chugging a soda since I spent 10 hours at the theater catching movies (Avengers, Furious 7, Mad Max) on four hours sleep so the soda was going through me during Mad Max but I did catch the last hour or so completely fine (I missed the bit where they attach Max to the car and... I think that's mostly it. Outside of like maybe a few minor scenes between the car stuff). The chases remind me of the Road Warrior in a good way. It's not the "1 long car chase" that people advertised it to be. There is stops but the movie is "one long car journey."

Theron definitely is the star of the show here. Her character has good intentions and Max starts to realize that while working together with her.

Nothing in the movie (IIRC) outside of human crashes/people being thrown in the air was CGI. NOTHING, everything in the film in regards to the car chases and even the people on those wires was practical effects.

Quote from: http://www.ew.com/article/2014/07/27/george-miller-mad-max-interview-comic-con
I feel like a lot of people are very excited about the idea that you’re doing old school stunts, old practical effects. Was that very important to you, going into it?

Yeah, Mad Max is not a superhero. We don’t defy the laws of physics, it’s not a fantasy film. It’s basically a western on wheels. And I think if people see, I know when I see too much CG, that sort of takes me out of the experience. You want to have that sort of almost, I’m not going to say documentary experience, but you want to feel it like you’re really immersed, like it’s really happening. So we decided to literally do every car that’s smashed is smashed, every stunt is a real human being, even the actors do a lot of their own stunts, and so on.

Well, yeah. I think only the Sandstorm was CGI since I can't think of any sweeping practical effects turning the African Desert into a roiling sandstorm. Double so with the tornados. But nearly 99% of the film is practical effects in an age where practical effects are less and less common.

The 78-year-old Jaffer says she and the other actresses did their own stunts. "And I got feeling from a lot of the crew members that they didn't think it was right women of my age to be doing that sort of thing. You know, sometimes they'd come up and say, oh, he shouldn't ask you to do that. And I would say why? And they'd say, well, because you're an older woman. I did it, and I have to say, I enjoyed every minute of it."

Jaffer says it was a box office risk for Miller to cast older women to play such ferocious characters. But she says she jumped at the opportunity. "The roles that one is offered at this age, quite frankly, you're either in a nursing home, you're in a hospital bed dying, you're suffering from dementia, or in fact, in two cases, I was offered two characters who'd actually died and come back to life," she says. "So when this role came along, I thought well, I won't get another chance like this before I die, and that's why I took it. It was absolutely wonderful. Wonderful role."

do you like people driving around while they shoot and punch each other? do you appreciate the aesthetics of seventies and eighties fantasy action movies? if so you will like this movie

Yeah, this movie really did a good job conjuring up the 80's action movie (keep in mind I never have seen the originals)... some absolutely breathtaking setpieces and the setting was also awesome (especially into the sandstorm). The guitarist was probably my favorite part of the movie.

Didn't like:

How Max's character had those brief traumatic flashbacks, that never really got properly explained or resolved. Movie would have been better if those were axed

$44 million opening weekend. Still about 25 million less than Pitch Perfect 2 because lol women, but better than early estimates that had it pegged at $40 million. Word of mouth has been so strong, I think it'll have good legs, and I expect it to do some solid numbers overseas too. The release list is pretty soft until Jurassic World drops in a month.

I didn't really care for this. I didn't read any of the reviews just saw the 99% at Rotten Tomatoes and went to go see it. While the action was certainly "visually spectacular" I just couldn't come up with a reason to care about anything happening on screen.

I was glad to see Theron and a group of women be the main protagonists in an action film and am glad Hollywood is changing, but at the same time half those women were waif-like and nearly naked. To me it seems like one step forward, one step back.

Ultimately the movie relied on the charisma of Theron and Hardy whom to me are less than mesmerizing. Hardy reminds me a lot of Sam Worthington and I'd say this film definitely had a Clash of the Titans feel to it: huge action, visual appeal, stoic leads, hot girls, and narrative-free.

Obviously I am in the minority here and I can certainly appreciate the magnificent setting, costumes, and world building. Really visually stimulating stuff. My eyes feel like I just played Civilization for 12 hours—I don't think I did a lot of blinking. The actors doing their own stunts and the minimal CGI is also very impressive. It just seems wasted to me without any plot to compliment it.

First sci fi in a while I had nothing bad to say about, mass appeal without feeling dumb and didn't get too preachy, bite off more than it could chew or get its head stuck up it's ass (Elysium, Avatar, Gravity, Prometheus, Interstellar..... )
 :bolo

Loved the attention to detail e.g. the war rigs engine's on fire so they drop the plow to put it out kicking mounds of dust over it, as it's raised it then cuts to a shot of the engine intakes reopening, then back to Theron at the wheel. Touches like this rooted me in the world, feeling satisfied with it. The pro feminist ecology ideology was nice and simple, never felt "challenging" and that's kinda sweet, presenting an unrepresented view in an easy to consume package. "Who killed the world?"

Immortal Joe looked like he was old enough to remember the pre-fall days, so it’s not surprising that his ideal for women is that they look like models. It is a little weird that as prepped and modified as the truck appeared to be, they didn’t have a change of clothes. Still, not the /least/ realistic aspect of the film.

I remember when Avatar came out it got universal acclaim. I mean universal (except Willco). Everything on my Facebook feed was about how amazing it was;everyone I went to see it with was raving about how amazing it was.

A few years later everyone tries to pretend they weren't on that movie's jock in December 09  :lol

Mad Max is better, of course.

Derail:

You know, I'd like to coin the term critical insurgency to describe what happened to Avatar and Inception. Overwhelmingly positive audience scores and critical consensus, but over time the minority of people who didn't like the films bashed them hard enough and long enough that the people who liked them just gave up.

You'd think Inception has like a 25% Tomato-meter from how GAF talks about it.

Did Inception really have that much of a backlash? Most people who disliked it dislike Nolan movies in general in my experience. Never saw big, widespread hate for it.

You'd think Inception has like a 25% Tomato-meter from how GAF talks about it.

Based on the way GAF talks about anything, it's either a 11/10 or a 1/10 [sometimes both].

I remember when Avatar came out it got universal acclaim. I mean universal (except Willco). Everything on my Facebook feed was about how amazing it was;everyone I went to see it with was raving about how amazing it was.

I still stand by my initial impression that Avatar was a great movie-going experience. It was pretty exhilariating in theaters in spite of the clunky dialog and flat characters.

Avatar was great to experience once in 3D on the big screen, but I never really felt the overwhelming desire to run out and watch it again as quickly as possible the way I do with Fury Road.
Title: Re: Mad Max: Fury Road |OT| Fucking alley
Post by: Tasty Meat on May 21, 2015, 01:34:51 PM
I was underwhelmed by Avatar. I went into it with medium expectations based on James Cameron finally returning to sci-fi (this is the guy who did Aliens and T2, mind) and I walked out of that theater with those expectations thoroughly unmet. Maybe my fault, sure, but I wasn't even wowed by it when I saw it in IMAX 3D. Plot over gimmicks, people.

Inception blew me away. Didn't know what I was getting into, didn't follow the hype or anything aside from a trailer or two, and I was thoroughly entertained. I can still rewatch that movie. It's so grandiose and sentimental without being too on the nose (unlike, say Interstellar.)

As for Mad Max, the duststorm scene didn't really make an impression on me since it was spoiled in the trailer and is the most CG-heavy spot in the movie (that I could tell.) The best scenes for me in the movie were the parts where the characters are fighting on the cars, or when the chase scenes ramp up with the music (I especially loved the bikers flying over the dunes next to the war rig.)

Two bits of dialog made me cringe in my seat, though. "What are you looking for?" "Redemption." ::)

"Remember me?" <- What? I was expecting a more badass line to be sure, but even just something that made sense in-context would have worked too. Or hell, even silence. Was there anything in the movie to suggest Joe had forgotten Furiosa? Cause from where I sat he was completely fixated on her for the entire thing.

Amazing action movie of course, just some bits that stuck out to me.

Post by: chronovore on May 21, 2015, 01:47:59 PM
I felt the implication with “Remember me?” was that /this/ was not the Furiosa which Immortan Joe would have remembered. She’s been enslaved to him, and now she was free -- she was forcing him to view her again, afresh.

Post by: Dantizzinel on May 21, 2015, 04:48:54 PM
Inception is a great movie that's insanely re watchable IMO. Avatar was a great spectacle that I loved as a movie going experience with no desire to go back, Gravity would be a recent example of this type.

Mad Max: Fury Road is great as a spectacle and also as a movie overall. The minamilist plot and dialogue add to the world building where you'll pick up things on multiple rematches that you haven't yet, plus the fantastic action scenes and sequences are what make the best action movies something you wanna go back to and can go back to over years and years. Kinda like T2, Aliens, The Road Warrior and any action movie that stood the test of time. Where Guardians Of The Galaxy is the great kind of blockbuster that works as a spectacle and a living room movie for years to come itself, kinda like an old Star Wars and Indiana Jones flick, it's not the pure adrenaline rush that the best action movies are. GotG also had way more problems than Fury Road. The new Mad Max is the first movie where I know I'm going to watch it again when I'm in the mood for an action flick. I can't say that about many action movies nowadays aside from Dredd and The Raid movies, and those aren't as good either.

What I'm trying to say is there are certain qualities that a movie needs for it to stand the test of time and be a classic for years to come. And Fury Road ticks all the right boxes in being as perfect as it can be at what it wanted to do.

Up to around $125 million now which is close to the budget. I had only expected hott brehs like on The Bore to be hyped enough to see it. But now I'm expectin' the sequels, George.

While checking on it, found out Furious 7 is still top box office of the year and the 4th highest grossing film (non-adjusted) ever: $1.489 billion. Avengers 2: $1.151 billion.

Course there's The Star War and Spectre coming. Plus Entourage obviously. And Magic Mike XXL.

He had said there's two sequels he had the story for while doing Fury Road, one of which was tilted Mad Max: Furiosa. I think that originally was supposed to be the second one. Might just be a title change.

EDIT: In that story:
Quote
Miller, who began filming “Fury Road” in 2012, had said several years ago that he planned to shoot two films back-to-back, with the second titled “Mad Max: Furiosa,” but Warner Bros. has not confirmed that there will be any more films in the franchise.

I'd have to watch it again, but I'd only agree if there was an actual reaction from him to the thing spinning. If I remember correctly he spins it and goes about his embrace with the family not caring about it. Which sure sounds like him just accepting whatever, but the camera focusing on it seems to simply just be the audience and to keep us guessing. The movie also seemed so clear cut with it's rules and what happen that I never even would assume that he's still dreaming accept for the ambiguous ending.

It's a statement, not a question. Joe's entire religion that he's built up for his war boys is all about doing amazing, manly deeds and then going on to Highway Valhalla.

Saw Fury Road again this afternoon. I did the 3D this time, since I did 2D last time. The 3D was meh, I barely even noticed it except for the part at the end, which I assume was added because the studio was like "Hey George Miller, we need this movie to be 3D, so could you add some 3D stuff to it?"

Having said that, the movie was still just as amazing as it was the first time. :rejoice

oh wait

http://www.nationalreview.com/article/418459/maximized-madness-armond-white?target=author&tid=1152026

Quote
En route to Jurassic Park way back when, I warned my screening pal: “When Spielberg decides to scare you, you’d better duck.” But the millions of people excited by the Internet trailer for George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road aren’t just ducking, they’re bowing down. The odd thing is, film culture has changed so much since the 1993 Jurassic Park that trailers (a tool of marketing) have become the end-point of interest in movies. Jurassic Park’s F/X spectacle was the event; now the sell is the event. Those who were teased by Fury Road’s trailer will surely prefer it to the two-hour-plus movie. Who can blame them? But that preference signifies a huge problem. Fury Road continues the end-of-civilization premise from Miller’s 1980s Mad Max films, which starred Mel Gibson (Beyond Thunderdome was the best of them). Tom Hardy, playing survivalist-loner Max, joins a group of runaway female concubines, led by Charlize Theron’s Imperator Furiosa, zooming for peace and regeneration in a dystopian world. With few explanatory narrative details other than the elaborate cartoonish freakdom (“Mankind has gone rogue! The Earth is sour! Who killed the world?!”), it’s all just nonstop road-rage violence. Director-writer Miller capitulates to the low instincts he originally pandered to more than 30 years ago. He’s gotten better at it — demonstrating lotsa panache — but the problem is that popular taste has degraded into an appetite for outlandish destruction and fantastic cruelty. The pop audience (and not just youth) has become like the crazed yahoos Miller depicts on screen without exactly satirizing them. The most watchable moments of Fury Road offer chase-movie overstatement to a point of laughable shrillness: Among the starving masses begging for water, one can be spotted lifting up a bedpan to catch his rationed portion. Fury Road itself is a bedpan filled with crazed details. Miller overflows it, intending audiences to get drunk on his excess — drunk on what Bill Murray in Quick Change called “used wine.” SLIDESHOW: Mad Max: Fury Road Fury Road offers nothing new; Miller rehashes his 35-year-old formula with a vengeance. There are clear, split-second edits of motorized, diesel-fueled caravans topped by jungle drums and a flame-thrower rock guitarist hurtling through the desert; Max strapped to the front of the juggernaut like a hood ornament; a car outfitted with rusted metal porcupine quills; and assorted branded, tattooed, screaming weirdos — at one point swaying like pole-vaulters across the width of the screen. Miller doesn’t simply master this we-are-all-gladiators trope, he celebrates it. None of today’s specialists in nihilism can match this stuff. Not Darren Aronofsky, not Christopher Nolan, not Bong Joon-ho, not Quentin Tarantino. But so what? When Miller put aside the Mad Max franchise and made the marvelous Babe: Pig in the City and Happy Feet, he showed more feeling for a pig and for penguins than for humans. Hardy’s charisma is wasted (masked again, as in The Dark Knight Returns), leaving the film’s emotional core to Theron’s one-armed Furiosa — a grindhouse cliché like the one-legged Rose McGowan in Planet Terror. None of this mindless madness is meant to scare you as Jurassic Park did. Miller’s action-cinema ferocity is hollow. His apocalyptic circus has video-game spectacle but no cinematic power; its revved-up imagery is unconnected to an understanding of what sensation and violence have done to our souls. That was the real point of Jurassic Park as well as of Neveldine/Taylor’s unnerving pre-apocalypse satire in the Crank series, Gamer, Jonah Hex, and Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. Neveldine/Taylor stepped up action cinema and stepped forward philosophically, whereas Miller applies the intellectual version of what race-car drivers call “drag.” By overinflating the biker-movie concept (featuring whips and chains, leather and studs, and a body-pierced, dreadlocked, skinhead chorus line), Miller allows his outré flamboyance to rob subcult menace of its edge. This distracts from the cultural collapse that’s really taking place on screen. His degraded audience mistakes the sentimental ending for narrative satisfaction. That’s what happens when movie culture has moved to a state of entropy. Fury Road is essentially an expanded movie trailer, full of inflated highlights — exactly what everyone expects and has already seen.

Post by: Rahxephon91 on May 23, 2015, 02:53:16 AM
I mean Furiosa wasn't a strong character because she was badass in a tough way. She was a strong female character because in a cultish world she was the only one daring to do anything and rebel. She's strong because she's willing to actually trust and believe in people despite the madness of the world. She's an actual person willing to believe in hope and not be despaired or a maniac. And it's not simply the women can use guns. It's also that men and women are pretty equal on pretty much all aspects and actually have to work together equally.

I also never got that the movie ogled the brides. I don't know where that came from. Then again people have argued aginst what they are wearing. Though, I don't see the problem given the context. They are supposed to be untainted feminine goddess in a jacked up post Apocalypse viking cult. Also things are scarce. Why would'nt a cult leader dress up his divine brides in the most stereotypical outfit imaginable? Since it's supposed to be imagined?

what he said, its about representation, not tokenism. Dredd is a good feminist action movie not because it has women kicking ass in it, its a good feminist action movie because it has well developed characters kicking ass who are women, just as the men in it are.

saw Fury Road again tonight, in a sold out show. Golly, what a friggin show that is. I'm already looking forward to the Blu-Ray. Is it too much to hope that Criterion does it? Notes from the re-watch.

-Immortan Joe is actually a good character, with a good performance, not just a dude in weird gear.
-the world and setting make a bit more sense on the second time.
-wow, that music rocks.
-the fast forward stuff looks less goofy the second time around.
-shame The Valkyrie went out so soon.

Still really good, but it falls off a bit for awhile after they get to the many mothers.

A couple of things don't make sense. First, you could never carry enough fuel on a motorbike to go 160 days. Second, you'd hit the ocean in less than half that time.

If the MRA set hadn't gotten their panties twisted nobody would be yelling about how feminist this film is. Don't remember anyone making a huge splash about Dredd treating Anderson like a person, and this isn't beyond that. If we were going to start doling out social justice cookies Fury Road's claim to any are thin as shit, given that it in no way undermines any inequality in the film industry (never mind the idea of Brendan McCarthy and Eve Ensler working on something that could honestly be called "progressive").

But it's just an action film about cars crashing shit, so imo it would be very strange to be disappointed by how it isn't some feminist manifesto

Look for plot holes in an action movie that purposefully chose action over plot and dialogue, brehs.

I love the minimalistic story and great world building. But we all know why we wanted to watch the movie, and we all know why it was made. Chillax with the whole getting too deep into analyzing everything.

Besides, the whole point of Furiosa's redemption helps tie back to liberating the citadel. Whether they hit ocean or not they probably don't have enough resources to get there. Everything she wants is at the citadel. Max saw that. So his suggestion was the best option.

Contradict yourself, brehs.

Every so often, a dose of truth slips past the Hollywood censor. Occasionally, the mask comes off, and we are allowed (accidentally) to see a realistic portrayal of how American women behave in a crisis. One such example is ironic, and instructive. The scene I will discuss happened to involve Charlize Theron (the irony!). The movie was 2009’s The Road. This was a realistic and terrifying vision of what a real apocalypse might look like. This is the face of reality, not the face of Hollywood leather-clad make-believe.

There is a scene near the beginning of the film where the Charlize Theron character and her husband become aware of the calamity that has befallen civilization. She and her husband (Viggo Mortensen) also have a small child. Theron, unable to handle the collapse of social order, abandons herself to despair. She wants to kill herself. And in an extremely disturbing scene, she simply abandons her family and walks out into the night, hoping to find a place to end her life. Lacking any character or strength, she abandons her family with unforgivable cowardice.

In other words, she is the typical modern American woman: lacking in character, tenacity, and endurance, and ready to sell out her man the minute that the shit hits the fan.

This has the ring of truth. And this is what makes the scene so disturbing. This is why no critic ever commented on it. If a real apocalypse were to happen, the response of nearly all American women would be: (1) curl up into the fetal position and die; or (2) seek out a male figure to protect her. There would be no altruism. There would be no virtue. But of course, this reality is almost never portrayed. Instead, what we get is the bullshit feminist pipe-dreams of Mad Max: Charlize Theron as a bionic-armed, karate-chopping ass-kicker, able to take down bodybuilders and brutes of all types.

One thing not touched upon often in Mad Max Fury Road reviews and impressions are the sheer wonder of its visuals: the frantic, hyperactive 48~ frames per second intro; the contrast between day - with its orange hue mapping the wasteland as far as the eye can see - and night - the blue tint that envelopes the entire screen in a stylized hue. My favorite shot is the one at night where blue is touching everything except for the fire made in camp. Another pick is shot where Furiosa stares at the vastness of the desert, feeling the weight of her of loss. The movement in that shot as the sand blows is beautiful, and touching. This movie is a such a stylized cumshot of visual goo when the action is going, but the most visually striking shots are in the quiet moments. Mad Max: Fury Road is pure movie magic (tm). Other modern Hollywood action Blockbusters fill the screen with as much mayhem as possible, such as Transformers, and always come away a little more ragid and cold than they really should, and despite their budget they never feel as cohesive, well directed, or stylized as this film. Mad Max hails from the old school camp of filmic visuals: if you don't need cg, don't touch it; if you can, simply use them to enhance what's on screen. And it worked. If Mad Max does not win awards for visuals and editing I will eat my hat.

And the real issue is not whether Hollywood has the audacity to remove the name sake of a movie franchise called MAD FREAKING MAX, and replace it with an impossible female character in an effort to kowtow to feminism.

It has.

It’s whether men in America and around the world are going to be duped by explosions, fire tornadoes, and desert raiders into seeing what is guaranteed to be nothing more than feminist propaganda, while at the same time being insulted AND tricked into viewing a piece of American culture ruined and rewritten right in front of their very eyes.

I love these so much. Sure, Max is mostly along for Furiosa's ride. But that's fucking the same as all the other Mad Max movies, he winds up in somebody else's problems that become his. His main instinct is to survive, just like in all the other movies. The only real difference in this one is that she's not a sidekick as much as an equal ROAD WARRIOR. And that comes as much from her knowledge of the state of affairs as doing anything "badass." Max has been trapped so he's not up to date on what's been going on and so he just tries to escape initially and has to be brought up to speed for why he's gotta wreck some people in the face before hitting the road.

It's like the whole essence of the character, he's a wanderer with "no purpose", who in his travels gets into some local affair that he can't leave behind for whatever reason including his comparatively high morals/character until the task is done and then he can't stay because of who he is.

They're really just classic Western tropes set in an apocalyptic future. With a lot more large scale action.

I loved the ending cause it's just so Mad Max. After years of heroes being celebrated or condemned in the end, with the latter mostly done in blockbusters due to TDK's popularity, I'm glad to have something end with the hero just walking away when his job is done. Just like The Road Warrior. Where RW has the feral child waxing nostalgic understandably, here he just leaves. On to wherever insanity he finds himself in next. No set up needed.

Saw it last night and loved it. It felt like a spiritual successor to The Warriors, where the protagonists have to run a gauntlet through a bunch of crazed people trying to kill them. But as they run that gauntlet everything is falling apart. That aspect keeps the tension high until the very end.

If it was just a movie about that, it would have been enough. But they layered on amazing stunts, memorable characters and small design touches that kept you fascinated even as they took the pedal off the gas for a few minutes.

Every time they cut to black, you could audibly hear my audience exhale.

I love that line in the movie. It's one of the first times a character looks past their nose and asks a question bigger than their own immediate survival.

I wonder if future Mad Max movies will ever seek that answer? I almost don't want them to, because I know I'll probably end up disappointed with the answer. I think I prefer the idea of the world just slowly going mad.

Saw it.  Liked it.

Not in love with it (although fuck yes flamethrower guitar).

 Kind of think the plot works better with a much older Max, long long after the nebulous historical apocalypse.  That city and setup looked much too old, especially with Furiosa being a kid living in a "clan" in "the green place" when Max in his 20s was driving around an Australia full of grass and trees as a cop.  And they had hospitals, nightclubs, etc...

I mean the plot seems to demand a Fallout type of delay between the apocalypse and the events in the film, or at least many many decades.

Miller could have framed the movie as a story retold (like he did in Road Warrior). But that is just "Hollywood fat" if you think about it.  It doesn't really make the movie better, it just helps contextualize the movie for nerds that care about timelines and 'canon' and shit like that.

Don't know why you'd say that.

Comic book readers can be the most pedantic consumers of entertainment when it comes to continuity and canon.

DC reboots itself so much everything is throw-away.  Marvel is combining its various realities such that now arguably more things are canon than before...

Or are you referring to crossovers and cross-title characters where was impossible to piece together how Wolverine was in so many places at approximately the same time?

To be fair, we don't know if it's the same Max. It could very well be that old Max is dead and gave the new Max Interceptor and the title "Max".

It certainly fits with western tropes.

Mad Max in general is a wanderer. He's essentially a continuation of a character made famous by old Samurai movies. He's kind of a myth that exists in the world. He arrives, gets wrapped into someone else's struggles and by the end he becomes invested enough to help. We've discussed this earlier.

In the end calling this a continuation or a reboot is sort of dumb. It's just another installment. The first movie is strange in the sense that it's the kind of prequel that usually shows up later to explain how a character became what he is but this time it's the first installment. It sets up who Mad Max is and then every movie after is essentially his adventures. You don't need more context than this world is fucked, Mad Max is a badass survivor in it who will sometimes help for the greater good. That style is perfect for the series, and what I honestly prefer over something that's bogged down by what was done before. It makes new installments not only easier to do but gives it more space to do more creative and different things. No style is inherently better than the other, just different. But too much has focused on canon for me to see a different approach as negative.

If you wanted canon and continuity. Well you watched the wrong movie.

Seriously. Mad Max is not about canon or continuity.

Continuing with what Wrath talked about, just use Yojimbo and Sanjuro as examples. They're the same character, but the timeline, and all that doesn't fucking matter. What matters are the constants: man gets involved in situation that has nothing to do with him, gets involved because he feels honor bound and wants to help, leaves like a badass. In Sanjuro, I think he doesn't even tell them his name, or if he does, it's a totally different name than was in Yojimbo.

This continues in movies like the Dollars trilogy. Timelines and canon are beside the point. What matters are the constants (Max goes from town to town and gets involved with various situations, does some good, leaves) and the themes within.

If the first Leone movie with "Blondie" had been set in colonial America, then a 4th one during the Civil War that's supposed to be centered on the same guy wouldn't make much sense.

You could certainly adapt or remake the story and take it to a different time and place... which is what Leone did do with Fistful... adapt Yojimbo.

You've definitely found a negative in the movie that I find strange. Almost as strange as the so called feminist agenda of the movie. Guess I'll just stop with saying you watched the wrong movie for what you're looking for.

It's not a matter of "not explaining everything."  It's a matter of the exposition we get not gelling very well with preceding events. 

That's bad writing, and it causes a break in suspension of disbelief.

It's not like I am saying the movie sucked or something.  I am saying I found that aspect jarring.

I liked Mad Max.  So I watched a movie called Mad Max: Fury Road.  What was the error in that exactly?

And it was, by and large, a good movie.



It feels, to me, like they wrote this with Mel in mind then recast young and just left things that would have only made sense with an old Max.

sometimes things like that are just dressing. I'm not sure it'd actually improve the movie in any way. the movie literally opens up with max eating a two headed lizard and then going on a badass car chase, right from the beginning. The movie is even called Fury Road. It's a literal and figurative road, from beginning to end. Extra stuff like what you're asking for doesn't add to the plot, characters, or anything. It's just window dressing, and Mad Max Fury Road's minimalism is a part of the appeal and mystique. It gives the setting and timeline an air of mystery, just like the titular character in Mad Max.

What "extra stuff" am I asking for?

If I need to be explicit so you understand my point, Furiosa being part of this "clan" of women from a mythical "green place" and being abducted from said clan / location as a kid doesn't make sense unless Max is at least so much older than Furiosa that she would have been a little kid right after the apocalypse.

It would be more believable the younger Furiosa was and the older Max was.

Again... lots of trees and grass in Australia in the first movie.  Grass is mythical ten years later???

I don't think you're getting it.  I wouldn't mind at all if Furiosa had been the only main character in a world similar to or the exact same but many years after Max was dead, or perhaps with a very old Max.

It's only when her backstory is somehow supposed to coexist with his and in the same timeframe and they're roughly the same age that things get very watdog.gif.

I get that you guys are saying not to think that hard about the story, but that's what one does for bad action movies that you're only watching for visual spectacle (or aaa video games with amazing graphics and awful story).

"Who killed the world?"


I love that line in the movie. It's one of the first times a character looks past their nose and asks a question bigger than their own immediate survival.

I wonder if future Mad Max movies will ever seek that answer? I almost don't want them to, because I know I'll probably end up disappointed with the answer. I think I prefer the idea of the world just slowly going mad.

From context, my assumption was the answer is simply "men." Men killed the world, as there simply were not enough women in positions of power; they were not allowed into positions which could have affected change.

More specifically, the world was killed by warmongers, corrupt capitalists, and religious zealots [represented in the post-apocalyptic world by the Bullet Farmer, the People Eater, and Immortan Joe].

Watched it last night. It was very good. I'm sure most of the stuff has already been said because of the length of this thread but I personally really liked the design of the world with all its little details and the job Charlize Theron does. She was more interesting and entertaining to me than Max himself.

I think I let some of the praise over-hype me on the movie but that's my fault. I'm not sure what I was expecting but it was probably too much. I wish I had seen it new without expectations. But that being said, I thought it was still very good with very few obvious flaws.

There's things I like better in The Road Warrior, but Fury Road is probably the better movie. Mad Max was one of the first movies where the sequel was better than the original. Now? Probably the first series where the very latest installment, 30 years after the last one came out, might be the best movie in the series.

It's pretty nuts.

Honestly, I'll probably flip flop on that next time I watch Road Warrior. They're both awesome for different reasons so maybe it's not even fair to compare them.

One thing I appreciated more on the second watch was Tom Hardy's performance as Max. He does a good job of selling the idea that Max has been alone for a really, really long time and that he's starting to fray around the edges a bit mentally speaking.

Saw it at last, and overall very glad to have seen it in a theater even if the projection quality was a tad wee shit. Great to see a movie that feels not like a fac-simile of current trends, on top of being a very good action flick. Was bummed by a couple SFX, the inelegant fades to black and flashbacks and I find the passage with the Vulva tribe weak and heavy handed but that's minor complaints. Props to Miller, I was suspicious for a long time that this project would turn rotten, was proven wrong.

Movie kind of sputtered for 20 minutes with the Vulva tribe, and that section features some contrived plotting and logical holes (this was glaring because the movie had flowed so organically and logically up to that point). But it recovers really well and sticks the landing perfectly.

Great BR transfer, predictably. The extras ain't half bad either, more of a focus on stuntwork then I'd thought there'd be. My appreciation for this film just grows the more I see it and get to know it.

For example, Richard Norton is in it, in an almost sizable role (he's the guy that Furiosa fights at the end and is often seen alongside Joe), and he choreographed the fights, and I just now looked up what he's done lately and holy shit he's sixty five. Its cool as hell that a guy with such a long history in action cinema (B movies damn near all) got to get a good gig like this.

 :lol @ caring about winning oscars. It won't win and it won't matter if it does or doesn't. Who remembers and/or cares about Shakespeare In Love? How Green Was My Valley? Driving Miss Daisy? Crash? The English Patient?

Yeah, didn't think so.

Fury Road will win a bunch of technical Oscars and nothing else, despite the fact that it's the best movie of the past 25 years if not of all time ever, because the Academy are a bunch of fucking assclowns. It's cool though, everyone will know the truth.

I agree it won't get the Best Picture it deserves but... man. To just ignore the dedication, vision and just sheer fucking legwork that went into creating and directing this movie would be just insane.

I loved Fury Road, but it's not like Miller was the only one dedicated to his work and a lot of legwork that happen on an hundred films gets lost in the sand.  The praise is well earned but let's not put him on a pedestal.

Yeah rewards are biased, but that's kinda the whole point to express preference, isn't it ? The Academy, representing the establishment, will honor and support academic films. Oscars hold disproportionate influence only because we let them have it by discussing them as it matters that much.

It would be terrific if Fury Road was the film that finally shames the Academy into creating a 'Best Stunt Coordination' Oscar. I would consider that legacy enough even if it didn't win awards that were so shiny, so chrome.

Fury Road absolutely must get nominated for Cinematography. The cinematography in this movie is better than plenty of movies that have won the award outright in previous years, to say nothing of the nominees that didn't win.

In a just world it would also get a Best Director nomination. Same as above - I think the directing in this film was superior to a number of films that have won the award in previous years.

I doubt the academy will give it a Best Picture nom.

If I had to handicap it, I'd say the odds of these nominations are:
Cinematography: 90%
Director: 50%
Picture: ~25%

(Just a matter of "when." I also hope they don't focus on the backstory of Fury Road too much. It works on it's own BECAUSE it doesn't explain every little thing. Let that breathe and knock out another Fury-Road level self-contained story)

Not awful but fan art tends to be quite overrated. At least this one has a credit block, so it's slighty less impractical than most fan posters.

finally saw this in a proper cinema (missed the first run and refused to see it in a poxy art house or on TV). star wars can fuck off and do half a line of cut coke in the disney executive bathroom while this monster mainlines gasoline with satan at a naplam death gig.

sweep the oscars or fuck the industry.

how this exists in this day and age is beyond me. masterpiece. literally the best cinema experience i've had since fellowship.

Finally watched this tonight. Contact high hasn't ended. Currently inventing a time machine to go punch myself in the face for not seeing this in the cinema last summer.

It needs all the oscars. All of them.

I hope George was just upset about the Oscars and didn't really mean he's done with the films.

But today brings news that this news from Page Six was, in one sense or another, complete bunk, as Miller is now saying that he was misquoted by the writer and that he is, indeed, ready with at least two more installments in the venerable series. Here’s what he had to say, via The Wrap:

“That was a completely garbled interview. I was in New York and it was so noisy and the journalist was asking me questions on a red carpet at the National Board of Review…She completely got the wrong fragments of information that were just not true. I said no, [another ‘Mad Max’ movie] will not be next, and she took that to mean I never wanted to make another ‘Mad Max.’ It won’t necessarily be next, but I have two more stories.”

BREHS

I watched this shit late last night. I was gonna start it around 9PM or so but delayed until 1AM, since I took the day off today. So I started the movie, kinda sleepy, thinking maybe I'll just watch half and watch the rest tomorrow. Nah niccas. This fucking movie.
:whoo

I don't even know how to explain it. Honestly the only thing that I didn't like was the framerate increase during some of the non-action scenes; it just felt unnecessary and weird at times. But during the action scenes? Holy shit. It's like you can literally see everything. There are no jump cuts or shaky cam editing moments. You're literally seeing everything, be it slowed down a bit or sped up.

Can we talk about how the guitar dude was the real MVP tho :whew

Another thing I didn't like: Max's delivery of lines was very ehh. Harrison Ford Blade Runner narration vibes in terms of the emotionless dead pan. But I thought the actor was impressive outside of that. The facial expressions throughout the movie lol. That shit was awesome.

I love Tom Hardy as Max in this mostly because it seems obvious he hasn't had much real human interaction in a long time so he has all these animalistic ticks and strange stilted yet direct way of speaking. Couple that with his PTSD and him being a ton more insane than he was before, you get a guy who isn't sure how to do some basic things naturally. A product of his environment and surviving since "the fall of the old world", so I really like that they went that route with Max this time around.

I'm currently in the process of annoying everyone I know by rabbiting on like a cokehead about a film they all saw eight months ago.

I can't tell if it's the perfect action film, or just my perfect action film.

I hope Kingsman gets a sequel or two, I want to live in a world with a little more non flash-cut shaky cam blur action* series that are not so genre serious.

Though it did use more CG than Mad Max, it wouldn't need it.

Actually, now that I think about it, Matthew Vaughn center frames a lot of his stuff:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2JfjO1PZxXc

Even with the teleporting the frame re-centers on it, and at the end it frames all four points of the turn in the center:
