I consider Fury Road to be a spin-off.

Thunderdome is not as bad as many people say.  I know some people love it.

Fury road is great! And I was in league with everyone else about no Mel.  Thunderdome isnt that bad.  I always turn it off when they send him into the desert

That's what a lot of people have a problem with, it became like a Disney/Spielberg film with the lost boys from Peter Pan.  Nothing worse than cutesy kids.  :cantlook:



Despite that, I really like the ending where you see the ruins of Sydney.



The train chase is cool too, but the best thing about the movie is Bartertown/Thunderdome.



I still like it because it's a good movie, even the Tina Turner songs aren't bad.  Not as good as the first two Mad Max movies though.

When George Millerís first feature film, Mad Max was released to audiences worldwide in 1979, the genre of the Action film did not exist as a genre like it does today. This is in part because films like Mad Max helped to define and establish such a genre.

Somebody actually agrees with me.

Went to a 40th anniversary screening at Metro Arts Brisbane, there was an actor there from the movie.  It was Charlie, one of the cops in the movie.  This old guy didn't want to talk about Mad Max, most of the time he was talking about some book he had.

Still good to see Mad Max on a bigger screen with an audience again.
