People are so used to having every single detail of the plot spelled out for them that they can't fathom a movie that tells its story almost entirely through the actions of its characters.

Man, this movie just tossed exposition in the bushes.  I'm not sure whether it's showing faith in the audience to figure shit out, or counting on people being able to enjoy the action regardless of how much they understand, but either way I liked it.

"Exposition" was actually the name of the first War Boy who kamikazes.

"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].

You three are making me hot. :whew

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.

Fury Road joins such films like The Thing for prime advocate of how not wasting pre-production time helps. The Thing got delayed a year so Carpenter & crew basically spent all of it testing and planning stuff...and it shows.

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%

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.

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

EDIT: http://collider.com/george-miller-new-mad-max-movies/
Quote
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.”

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 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.

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:
