    Finally saw it today while the roommate and stepdaughter were gone. It's so fantastic, probably the best shot action film I've ever seen. Furiosa is such a boss, I loved the feminist quality of the film and the themes of hope and survival going along with it which seem extremely appropriate in this day. Tom Hardy was great, his accent was weird, but he didn't really need to say much, he just looked badass and got shit done. The first 30 minutes of the film where he's strapped to the car for the bulk of it are relentless. I thought I was going to have a heart attack several times.

    Hardy is a mumbler. Just watched The Drop the other night, he was doing a New York accent. That, plus the mumbling made him almost impossible to understand.

    This movie... Amazing. Saw it a while ago but my mind keeps wandering back to it. Growing up, I must have seen the original movies countless times on tv or VHS. This one totally holds up to the awesomeness of the originals.



    Here is a video of the Mad Max trailer set to a metal version of Yakety Sax.

    You are right, I recently saw Lawless and he mumbles there too.
    But in Bronson he was crystal clear.
    In any case he's a fantastic actor.

    And I want to see Mad Max again soon.

    Well, this is disappointing. After the early word that there were more planned, George Miller now says he will never make another Mad Max movie.

    Hope it's just off the cuff...

    Noooooooooooo! George, please!! I blame the Golden Globes for snubbing him...

    In all seriousness, I too hope it's off the cuff. It wasn't long ago at all that he finished Fury Road, so he's probably still exhausted from it. That said, I'd love to see someone like Guillermo del Toro take on the franchise.

    10 Oscar nominees including Best Picture and Director. I'm very okay with this, to say the least. One of my favorites.

    Wow, ten Oscar nominations. I'm very pleased with that, and it's nice to see an action film like this receive so much recognition during award season when that's rarely the case.

    Maybe that'll help ease Miller back in to the direction of considering another??

    In maybe the least surprising, but still good, news I've heard in a while... George Miller says original quote was a mix up, still has ideas for and wants to do two more Mad Max movies.

    Thats a pretty big misquote, considering what it says in the other article:

    “I won’t make more ‘Mad Max’ movies,” the director told the New York Post’s Page Six. “‘Fury Road’ with Charlize Theron, ZoŽ Kravitz, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Riley Keough was forever getting completed. If you finish one in a year, it’s considered a leap of faith. Start, stop, start again.”
    Miller is referencing “Fury Road’s” troubled production, which began in the New South Wales outback in 2010, but had to be moved to Namibia.

    Also read: Powerhouse American Society of Cinematographers Nominations Include 'Carol,' 'The Revenant' and 'Sicario'

    “I’ve shot in Australia in a field of wild flowers and flat red earth when it rained heavily forever,” he said. “We had to wait 18 months and every return to the US was 27 hours. Those ‘Mad Maxes’ take forever. I won’t do those anymore.”

    For real. The fact that the first interviewer, according to Miller, just got 'garbled fragments' of what he was saying and ran with it...in to 'He doesn't want to do any more, ever!' is pretty ballsy lol.

    It sounds a lot like "I didn't want to do this, and now I have one of the most lauded films of 2015 and probably way more pull with a studio, so now I absolutely want to." Regardless, I'm down. Since he mentioned doing a film all about Theron, I've wanted it. She's not in enough stuff, seriously.

    Yeah I thought that too, it reminded me of Daniel Craig's situation where he was quoted as saying he'd rather slit his wrists than do another Bond movie...until he was on the Today show like two days later saying that the guy who asked him that, did so literally the DAY he finished a long ass shoot and the movie wasn't even out yet haha. His analogy of 'imagine running a marathon, and the second you cross the finish line dead tired, someone asks you "Hey! When are you gonna run another marathon?" Might be the case here. Either way, agreed on the Theron idea...it'd be badass.

    I don't quite believe this is happening, but if it is, why the hell is it called Mad Max?

    After making three progressively bigger “Mad Max” movies — the 1979 original as well as “The Road Warrior” (1981) and “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome” (1985) — Miller let the franchise he created lay dormant until 1998.]
