Mad Max: Fury Road |OT| Fucking alley
« on: May 11, 2015, 11:32:25 AM »


May 15th in the US, rest of dates here

Empire 5/5
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
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
Quote
Utterly embarrasses a generation of Hollywood blockbuster

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

Birth.Movies.Death: "A modern action masterpiece"
Quote
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.

The Guardian: 4/5
Quote
Tom Hardy is a macho Mr Bean in brilliantly pimped reboot

I'm skeptical. Some of the recently clips I've seen have weird editing choices with odd angles and camera cuts that make it feel jarring and awkward.

It's hard to really articulate into words just what an insane fever dream this movie is.

And yes, Charlize Theron steals this entire movie and drives it right through a canyon full of mutated freaks.

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.

This is me throughout most of the movie: "I can't believe what's happening. Is this really happening?"

I left feeling thoroughly entertained, but equally scammed by previous action movies. The bar has been raised. Get fucked, Michael Bay.

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.

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.
