Then the final chase scene happens which is 10x cooler than everything you just watched, which means it's 100x cooler than every other chase scene in every other movie combined. Impossibly cool. Chain saws, explosions, grandmas getting killed, kidnapping, metal, and a collapsed lung. This movie has everything I like and nothing I don't (horses).

Anyway I'd go on but I don't want to spoil anything. I give this movie: 100/5 stars

Is this a bad movie to watch alone?
I did'nt know Inception had such backlash. Still, it's a fun heist film with some clunky exposition. I simply dislike the ending which played the ambiguous card for no reason, setting lose a debate that was unneeded and making dumb people think the movie is some super deep complex movie. I think the problem with internet fanboys is that thier "complex" nerd movie is actually liked by normal people. So they feel the need to be above it.

I went into it hating the rabid Nolan fanboys but liked it and thought the ending was smart as the whole point was that Leo just accepts what he sees without questioning it anymore. It had to be an ambiguous ending.
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.

Last I read, Miller had two sequels planned, one was MM: Furiosa, and the other was not-yet-titled, so that could be The Wasteland.

"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.

spoiler (click to show/hide)
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. So, what Furious is saying is "Remember this moment, where everything that you'd built up was completely torn down by your own lieutenant, a woman."

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.

From Armond White's review of Jonah Hex:

Quote
It reexamines assumptions of good and evil-morality tale vs, trite entertainment-by confronting the hideous compromises people make with social conventions and their own desperation.

A piece of american culture? Mad Max is Australian and part of the short ozploitation boom that happened in the US in the beginning of the 80's. All the old movies were Australian. Dude's really reaching with this "Historic AMERICAN male series ruined by FEMINISM" angle. Calling it or anything feminist propaganda is reaching anyway.

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.

Saw it again.

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.





Great movie.

Perfect action flick.

Feminism doesn't simply mean women getting to partake in typical badass "guy stuff". Feminism is about redefining our social value system.

 :huh
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.

If George Miller doesn't win Best Director, something is wrong with the Academy.

THANK YOU! been kind of annoyed with this whole "this is not a mad max movie" complaint/observation from people who've never watched a Mad Max movie before.
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.

In a 1979 review, the Australian social commentator and film producer Phillip Adams condemned Mad Max, saying that it had "all the emotional uplift of Mein Kampf" and would be "a special favourite of rapists, sadists, child murderers and incipient [Charles] Mansons".

The more I think about it, I'm pretty sure it was the best for me too. After the storm scene ended that first chase my wife looked over and said "whoa". I think that about sums it up. I was actually grinning watching it.

Also how with each film he gets pushed further and further into that classic western/samurai flilm mythical figure status. Mostly silent and near unstoppable. More spirit than man. With this film even his name gets pushed out.

One of my favorite things was when he went back to the guys trailing them at one point, then came back a couple minutes later covered in blood and hauling a shit ton of weapons and supplies. One of the breeders was all, "you're bleeding" and someone else said, "that's not his blood..."

And then at the end, he just quietly slips through the celebrating crowds and back into the wasteland.

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.
