Mike and Jay sneak back into the VCR repair shop to pick up some treasured DVDs as well as talk about their thoughts on the new Mad Max film, Fury Road. Spoilers: it’s fucking awesome.

    Yee-haw! A new HitB!

    I hadn’t seen any Mad Max films before this one, but Fury Road blew my mind. Non-stop thrilling insanity with a fantastic soundtrack. I’ll probably see it again and recommend it to everybody I know.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    2nd

  • craptonium

    Now to wait for the Twisted Metal movies.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    We put the Gay in Gayming? Ommited will love that.

  • RLMkeepitup

    Mike hasn’t seen the first 2 films? Man. Makes me feel better about missing Thunderdome.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    You haven’t? Get the fuck out!

  • Wizard Phoenix

    You upload this right before I go to see the movie. There is some sort of conspiracy going on here.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    that’s gotta be some in house joke.For 88 HiTB episodes two guys who finished film school constantly miss out on historically/culturally significant movies.Every time it’s either Jay or Mike being completely oblivous about some series that would be pretty much a mandatory viewing if not in school then at least by yourself as a cinema fan.

  • Charon

    I JUST navigated to this webzone and watched the update happen. I have great timing today. Let’s hope they don’t get carried away with the supposed “feminist subtext” that’s shoehorned into the film…

    Oops, never mind. I forgot where I was.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    George Miller is the anti George Lucas

  • HOW does Jay know that this will be his favorite movie of the year?
    Did he read the script?
    Is that the script on the table?

  • Freakin hack frauds.

  • RLMkeepitup

    Mike’s using dial up on a nintendo DS to use the internet

  • K.L

    Hollywood a shit

  • Jegsimmons

    Fury Road was brilliant.

    Grindhouse is back baby!!!

  • thelionroars

    Blatant false advertising, there were no furries whatsoever. 2 stars.

  • craptonium

    What’s this “feminist” thing? Is it the new tinfoil hats?

  • Angelo

    I have to see it tomorrow, it will be Fury Road + Half in the Bag = awesomeness overload.

  • Well, at least they’ve seen Robocop.

  • Topdek

    While I think this movie is the uncompromising movie-length action sequence we’ve all been waiting for, I still have an issue with the plot. Circling back to the place they began felt anti-climactic. I would have much preferred if they found the fabled “Green Place”, and for one reason or another, Max has to leave. Maybe there would be an innocent village there (like the village of children in Thunderdome) that accepted Furiosa and the brides and grandmas, but were afraid of Max and thus compelling him to move on.

    I also felt that the villain’s death was anti-climactic. If someone has to cry out “he’s dead!” in order for the audience to know the villain is dead, then there’s something wrong.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    For every time Mike calls some movie “the worst movie ever made” Jay calls some movie on HiTB one of his favorite movies of the month/year/decade.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    RIP Mike’s worst movie ever joke

  • dollar store cashier wife

    We just needed a long super detailed closeup of Immortal’s Joe missing jaw.

  • Palpatine

    Great episode, guys! Despite the fact I haven’t seen the other Mad Max movies, I really wanna see this new one.

  • Cream-A-Thon

    Just getting to first base with a movie is an achievement for Mike, Jessi’s got to be feeling a little left out right about now.

  • Daniel

    Fucking loved Fury Road. First movie in a long time that was tonally clean, meaning that nothing in it was out of place. Even the 3D was done in such a way that it never sucked even a little bit.

    Also: Double-Guitar Flamethrower guy.

  • Hopefully this sets a positive trend of “70 year old filmmakers successfully revisiting their fictional worlds for the first time in thirty years.”
    David Lynch… Godspeed, you weird bastard. Make us proud.
    (And I’m totally stoked to see this movie now. The Avengers can lick my taint.)

  • zaz926

    “She went in there to hide, not to run”

  • Charon

    Black Spring Break 2015 – Never Forget

  • dollar store cashier wife

    Based off Inland Empire which Lynch did in his 60’s I’m certain he’s still got it.

  • Yes, ‘Edge of Tomorrow,’ ‘Days of Future Pants.’
    I can’t blame Jay. Every year feels like such a slog that you can’t help but say “This was the best thing in EONS!” when something great comes along.

  • Jegsimmons

    It was a pick up artist site that got mad about Max being a side character and then feminist bloggers made it look like MRAs were getting all pissed off so they could make them look bad.

    in short, everyone was a fucking idiot about the feminism

  • Daniel

    On the other hand, it could have been a lot worse in a million ways.

    Nobody gave a monologue.

    Also, he was a god to them. How on earth would they not exclaim “He’s dead!” when they saw him dead? That would have been plain illogical (unlogical? alogical? ah, fuck it).

  • Jegsimmons

    Does ANY other movie look nearly as good as Fury Road?

  • I only just recently watched that.
    I felt uncomfortable throughout the whole thing.
    He’s still got that David Lynch Touch.

  • Captain Turbo

    No review of Black Spring Break? Rip-off!!!

  • The Ghost

    It’s really quite something, when you think that what is now amazing and awe-inspiring to viewers are well-executed practical effects, the kind that were ubiquitous for so many years.

  • Palpatine

    How many of you guys will want to throw down a mineshaft if I say I’m excited for Jurassic World?

  • WrongWithYourFace

    First the VHS trailer frame now a “Created By” in the start? What kind of re-branding is this, you self-important frauds?

  • Topdek

    Don’t get me wrong, I thought the movie was fantastic, I just felt that the villain’s death and the roundabout in the plot (“we were going one way, now lets go back”) were unsatisfying. And while I agree that Immortal Joe’s death would have awed the brides and Furiosa, I just would have liked to see him die in a more grisly fashion, with his eyes popping out of his skull for a microsecond like in the original movies.

    Speaking of which, did you guys notice that Max has a flashback in Fury Road of the original Mad Max movie, with Toecutter going headfirst into a semi and his eyes bugging out of his face?

  • Angelo

    I tried to watch it… three times. I could never finish it.
    But Mulholland Drive is for me one of the greatest movie ever made. EVA

  • Domo_Returns

    Why did Jay not complain about the Mad Max movies not having numbers to show their order? Mad Max 1, 2, 3, 4? Nope!

    The hack fraud levels are off the charts!

  • Domo_Returns

    If there’s no “Drugs are serious business” segment at the end with Rich Evans falling over in a way too large suit, it’s not a worthy re-branding.

  • Mark Andrew Edwards

    Damn it. Now I have to go see this. I was going to pass on it, since it sounded like Max was the sidekick rather than the main character. But if these guys like it, gotta give it a try…

  • Domo_Returns

    You might learn a thing or two from this bad guy, Palpy. He really has a thing for Mother’s milk. Supposedly really good for those laser burns you got there, buddy!

  • Cream-A-Thon

    Where is Dick the Birthday Boy??? What has he HAAAD?

  • TVH

    Miller and Lucas are practically the same age, so if Miller can direct a visceral and superior following to a three decades old trilogy ten years after Lucas finished the prequels, by not sitting in a chair and drinking his coffee, that is very impressive.

  • JohnBigbooty

    Well, I’m an old school Max fan, so I’m already biased against Hardy, even though he’s a fine actor(Locke). And Jay liked Prometheus and Dark Knight Rises. Still, I shall give this a try.

  • Domo_Returns

    George Miller is anti-Hollywood. Which is wonderful

  • Domo_Returns

    Jay wants to believe.
    Mike says “Fuck it” and goes back to his TNG series.

  • Bahareh Khosravi

    Angel dussssss….

  • Ubik

    Is this is the Comic Sans in the titles, you frauds?

  • JackgarPrime

    It may seem like blasphemy to say it, but I actually think I like Tom Hardy’s Max better than Mel Gibson’s.

  • WrongWithYourFace

    Is it just me or did Mike get a haircut or something?

  • RLMkeepitup

    I’m in denial of my excitement. I don’t even know what that means.

  • JackgarPrime

    I was kind of hoping they would go a retrospective of the three previous Mad Max films for this one, but ah well. Movie’s fucking great. One of the best action films in years.

  • Palpatine

    It means your denying your excitement so you won’t be ostracized by others for wanting to see it.

  • No, seriously, I’m super stoked for this movie.
    I’ve never seen a Mad Max movie before (I’m young and culturally-illiterate) but I like the way how Jay described it, how Max is a “vessel” for larger stories.
    That’s what I liked about one of my favorite shows, ‘Cowboy Bebop’– it was an exploration of a strange, futuristic world where, oftentimes, the main characters were on the sidelines as self-contained stories played themselves out.
    And, yeah, I know that “barrier” that Mike and Jay are talking about when it comes to superhero movies. Superheroes are too “above” us, I think the problem is. They’re juvenile power fantasies. AWESOME juvenile power fantasies, but still… I think that the genre is kind of limiting.
    I’ll stop now before my opinions get progressively snobbier.

  • Jeffrey Padilla

    I feel that Fury Road felt like the final film in a Mad Max trilogy. It was a great movie and world he created but I want to know more about this new world that Max is in, like the three towns, what happened to the green place, how did Max get to that point at the beginning of Fury Road.

  • Like Icare

    Well… it DID take 30 years to make…

  • Mike’s the skeptic.
    Jay’s the believer.
    Mike and Jay star in the greatest porn parody known to man– “The XXX-Files.”

  • Domo_Returns

    Are you saying Jay should be a redhead now?

    NOOOOOOOOO.

  • Come on, guys, you’re kidding yourselves.
    Mad Max will never beat Boyhood.
    No one can.

  • JackgarPrime

    But this movie took 30 years to make!

  • It was a joy to watch Tom Hardy grow up right before our very eyes.

  • Domo_Returns

    It was great to watch those supermodels pop out of the womb, and walk through the desert for the first time.

  • Palpatine

    He went from Shinzon? to Bane to Mad Max!

  • JackgarPrime

    Shinzon was the awkward teenage phase.

  • Palpatine

    Isn’t Shinzon from a Star Trek movie?

  • I felt that watching those babies being groomed to become sex slaves was truly tasteless, though.
    Wait, was that actually in ‘Boyhood’ or did I just hallucinate that?

  • JackgarPrime

    Star Trek Nemesis, yeah. Surely you’ve seen the Plinkett review about it by now?

  • A “Star Trek” “movie.”

  • JackgarPrime

    Yes to both.

  • Bane was the kinky BDSM phase. He’s still into some of that stuff in Mad Max.

  • Palpatine

    That’s the second HitB in a row that had Mike making a Star Trek reference. What a nerd.

  • JackgarPrime

    Then what was Bronson?

  • Yeah. Mike needs to… PFFFFT!… GET A LIFE!

  • RLMkeepitup

    maybe once a month Mike could show the vhs/dvds that shows up in the po box. And then be forced to watch one while Jay films his facial expressions handheld. The audio should be restricted to grunting or one syllable responses only.

  • Domo_Returns

    Are you saying the little Twi’rp was being raised to be a sex slave in Boyhood? Is he going to be in Magic Mike XXXL?

    Oh man, Linklater’s universe is so awesome!

  • Obviously, his Charles Bronson phase. You can still see some of it in The Dark Knight. He’s still in prison.

  • I can’t wait until the Linklater Cinematic Universe is fully developed.
    I can’t wait to see what Linklater is building to with the Enchanted Gems and the Cosmic Chalice.

  • I don’t think Omitted could take that much grunting and facial expressions.

  • Domo_Returns

    I would love to see all the shit they get each month.

    So many fleshlights and manchild toys.

  • Apparently ‘Pitch Perfect 2’ is doing better at the box office, though.
    Fuck everything.

  • Well, that’s nothing to sing about.

  • It’s too bad Paul Walker won’t be able to hear it.

  • JackgarPrime

    Give it a week.

  • Okay, that’s enough commenting for me for one day.
    I’ve been meaning to write a story for about *looks at watch* five years now, so I can’t keep procrastinating.
    I will return!

  • Domo_Returns

    It was really nice to watch Fury Road’s first car chase scene come to a close, and hearing some guy way up top in a completely silent theater say “Holy Shit.”

    It was like he watched an action movie for the first time. And it was amazing!

  • Jay Stein

    Noice! Gonna wait for Blu-Ray on this one, but now I’m stoked. It also looks a lot like RAGE the videogame. Which is ok by me

  • If anything, Rage was inspired by Mad Max. Although, at this point. Who knows? If you play games be on the look out for the Mad Max game that’s being developed by the guys who made Just Cause. Might be fun.

  • Jay Stein

    Palpy, watch Mad Max and Road Warrior ASAP! Maybe the Manhole?

  • Bob Borries

    Jay seems to know am awful lot about sex slaves, I wonder what brand of beer he’s drinking? Not that I follow product endorsements from personalities that I have dreams about.

  • He can’t hear anything. Because he’s dead. insert Mike’s mechanical laughter

  • So, I guess Mad Max is really good. I probably should brush up on the old ones before this one comes out. Who knows, I might actually go to the cinema to see it, for once.

  • Buk Pravon

    Thank you very much, Mike and Jay, for your opinion.

    I waited for this to make up my mind about going to see this movie or not. First, of course, I didn’t want to see it, because I never saw any of the previous Mad Max Movies and its only available in 3D. :/

    But now I am certainly going to watch it anyway. 🙂

    Btw. What beer is Jay drinking? oO Looks very strange to me. … And that’s Finn riding Jake at the end.

  • What’s Finn and Jake?

  • Buk Pravon

    Its a thing.

  • WrongWithYourFace

    *a Finn riding Jay

    Finn meaning omitted, of course.

  • Jay Stein

    Yes of course, RAGE is one of my favorite games because it’s like Mad Max. It’s just funny how IDs game are so similar to movies that the Video Games that are made for suck, like DOOM3 compared to Aliens, RAGE to Mad Max, Wolfenstein compared to the Keep of course those two don’t have Video Games attached to them (yet). So to me Videogames work on a level of Homage, funny how that works

  • Like Icare

    Sum up the reason why was that movie so fun in two simple mono- or disyllabic words anyone knows.

    CONGRATULATIONS!

    Now you know into what everyone will try to make EVERY movie for the next two decades.
    Having not yet seen the movie… I’ll go with… “Cars” and “Babes”.

  • Adzl33t

    Great movie

  • WrongWithYourFace

    Half in the Bag has seriously picked up the pace after the balloon house arc. Both last episodes made me laugh out loud multiple times. The balloon stuff was so joyless compared to this.

  • Jay Stein

    Watch Mad Max and The Road Warrior. Skip Thunderdome, In my opinion, but it may also be worth a watch. It’s not horrible, just too tonally different than the previous two for my liking

  • Hank_Henshaw

    Reshoots and editing must’ve really saved this one. Normally, movies that have such a long. troubled production, and which had mixed-to-poor test screenings don’t turn out well.

  • WrongWithYourFace

    This makes me want to see the movie in a theater even just for the hopes of experiencing some of that famous movie magic.

  • Like Icare

    “Magic Mike XXXL”

    Is that like an extra-large leprechaun?
    #MoreIrishHeritageShaming

  • Hank_Henshaw

    Hardy might be the better actor, but he doesn’t have the charisma Mel Gibson had in his prime.

  • Jay Stein

    The development time for this moopie is about 15 years from when Miller was actually committed to it

  • Hank_Henshaw

    “Then, why did you write it?”
    “I didn’t.”
    WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY RICH EVANS

  • Like Icare

    Shouldn’t that be “Be Kind – Reach Around”?

  • So it’s a story about a little pig riding a twinky.

  • WrongWithYourFace

    I wonder if the opening credits were just a set up for the joke or if it’s an actual thing now.

  • Buk Pravon

    A little, heroic pig with a sword and a twinky with magical abilities, yes.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    Pitch Perfect reaches out to a much broader demographic.

  • WrongWithYourFace

    Development time? This ain’t no vidya gaym!

  • Animist_Primal

    Anybody else think the gamer/nerd jokes are really how Mike and Jay view us and are just using the cross over as an excuse? And speaking as a gamer, I still love it when they do it!

  • Domo_Returns

    I think Mike and Jay wanted to do this whole new style of show introduction just so they can throw their version of Comic Sans on us.

    We’ll call it Bauman Sans. It’ll be great.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    My money is on joke. Rich Evans is an actor (best actor of his generation, or any generation for that matter), he doesn’t write or direct shit.

  • Maybe they’re referencing the fact that Rich wasn’t credited in the last episode? I don’t know. Apparently, he was starring in this one.

  • Jay Stein

    Why do you think its called “development hell”. Also the movie looks a lot like RAGE the videogame, which is awesome

  • Jay Stein

    Rich is taking over RLM, like a BOSS!

  • Zing!

  • Jay Stein

    We wont tolerate sexist comments here…

  • Palpatine

    Holy shit, they are using Comic Sans! What a bunch of hack frauds!

  • [DERP]

  • Jay Stein

    that font

  • Palpatine

    Great time at the Manhole last night, huh?

  • Alex Lee

    So, the little pig riding a twinkie is going to be the one action figure to rule them all.

  • Jay Stein

    Always a great time. We should attempt to watch those two Mad Max moopies there later if possible

  • WrongWithYourFace

    Jack wasn’t but I believe Rich was.

  • Domo_Returns

    Anytime they make fun of us, they’re making fun of themselves in a little tiny way.

    I mean, Mike is the greatest Star Trek nerd I’ve ever seen. They watch shit films for a living. They edit footage of them farting, chopping peppers, and jerking off to droids.

    We laugh at them as much as they laugh at us.

  • tOmy`

    The fuck is an “emotional connection”? Do I need an USB port for that?

  • Oh, my bad.

  • James Earl Jones

    I rewatched Mad Max 3 last night. Rage looks a lot like that movie.
    Gotta rewatch the second movie now.

    EDIT: Actually, while I was watching MM3 I was constantly thinking both of ROTJ (ewoks/kids) and Rage.

  • Jay Stein

    We also love them

  • Like Icare

    Except he’s like Greek-Australian… so them combination of Sun-adapted genes and growing up so close to our planet’s yellow Sun makes him like late 40-ish in Lucas years.

  • Cream-A-Thon

    We’ve got to track down those Italian knock-offs Mike & Jay briefly showed on screen, too.

  • Cream-A-Thon

    I have quite a bit of material for the ‘Disq of the Worst’ yet to come.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    All I heard was when walking out of my screening two girls saying the film had too much action and was boring.Fucking pretentious eastern europeans gotta hate’em…oh wait

  • Domo_Returns

    And they love to hate us.

    It’s practically the same thing.

  • Jay Stein

    Please don’t mistake my comparisons to RAGE as negative. I was thinking to myself a while ago how RAGE would stand up as a movie, but now it doesn’t have to. Master George Miller is on the job 🙂

  • Like Icare

    Yes. It is very much a broad demographic it is reaching out to.

  • Jay Stein

    Yes! Yes! Yes!

  • Well i heard Adam Sandler was interested in a “soft” reboot of the classic “The Grabowskis”.. i cant wait to see who is gonna take the role of Jay The Rapist…

    BTW i m glad Fury Road isnt just another lame reboot but a sequel by the original director(that i only realized this week).. my hope for big action entertainment with balls just got a little reinvigorated with that one, John wick and The Raid 2 last year(i thought The Guest was also a nice one).

  • James Earl Jones

    I have not watched Fury Road yet, but from what I’ve been hearing about it and seeing, I’m so glad that people are loving it.

  • Like Icare

    You need a poke-man machine for that.

  • Lt Hurwitz

    And just like “Edge of Tomorrow” it will make 1/8th of the latest “Transformers” turd.

  • Jay Stein

    It magical

  • Hank_Henshaw

    Just checked the trailers for My Uncle the Alien, Black Spring Break and Mom Can I Keep. Watching the full movies must give cancel.

    I can see Mike enjoying My Uncle The Alien because of the Star Trek easter egg.

  • James Earl Jones

    Which ones were you talking about, though?

  • dollar store cashier wife

    He became a big guy.

  • Jay Stein

    Mad Max and the Road Warrior

  • James Earl Jones
  • Like Icare

    WELL HOE ELSE IS THEY GONNA MAKEA SALAD IF THEY DONTA CHOPPA THE PEPPER! WHATA KINDA SALAD WOULD THAT A BE?!

  • Lt Hurwitz

    It’s a funnier font than we’ve ever had before.

  • Like Icare

    I thought it was like poetry?

  • dollar store cashier wife

    no no keep going.with Pa Kent leaving we gotta restore the balance.

  • Jay Stein

    It rhymes

  • Domo_Returns

    And John Wick, and Dredd, and….

  • Those two I need to see.

  • tOmy`

    It’s more her story?! Fucking feminists ruining everything.

  • WrongWithYourFace

    For you…

  • Great review except for the part where you both became apologists for feminism’s outsized influence in Hollywood.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    yup.neat little easter egg.

  • Jay Stein

    I’ve seen Dredd and that movie is Awesome. Got high praise from Jay as well

  • dollar store cashier wife

    WAS THIS PART OF YOUR PLAN?

  • Domo_Returns

    Think of John Wick this way.

    Mike is watching some generic assassin movie. The directors are sitting behind him as Mike blurts out “What do they do with the murdered bodies? Do all these assassins know each other? Where the fuck do they all hang out?”

    And the directors went “We’re gonna turn Mike’s thought process into a movie.”

  • I’ve seen a clip in which he called the clean up crew to his house. It was pretty hilarious.

  • WrongWithYourFace
  • Like Icare

    MIRACLES!

    No… wait… that’s fucking magnets… my bad…

  • James Earl Jones

    Fucking miracles, how do they work?!

  • Palpatine

    Yeah, ’cause it’s not like we haven’t watched enough of those already.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    well congratulations you got yourself caught! now what’s the next step of your master plan?

  • Cream-A-Thon

    Have you forgotten the lesson of Hellraiser so soon? It’s never enough!

  • Pa Kent Says Maybe

    You mean non-feminist moms, girls, gay teens, their befuddled significant others, and Glee Club members?

  • Like Icare

    Statistics and probability. Probably.

  • Pa Kent Says Maybe

    Maniac Mechanic.

  • Palpatine

    I think we’ve already watched almost half of the Italian post-apocalypse there are, time for something different. You know, like your Wheel of the Worst. Did you find anything new to put on it?

  • WrongWithYourFace

    Cwashn’dishplain.

  • Resistance. Level up your resistance.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    B R A V O N O L A N

  • Like Icare

    Or you could try spinning. That’s also a good trick.

  • Hey, Pa. How’s it hanging? Is Kent Jr. still a disappointment?
    I do think his laughter is more mechanical than maniacal, as evidenced by F*uck you, it’s January 2015.

  • Cream-A-Thon
  • Palpatine

    Okay, I got Donut Unto Others.

  • Cream-A-Thon

    Great spin! I think that’s a short one. Anyone else wanna give it a whirl?

  • The Ghost

  • Palpatine

    Why did Mike take the Pig riding a Twinkie toy if he hates cartoons?

  • James Earl Jones

    Alright, my turn! And I got…
    William Shatner & State Farm® present “Eat, Fry, Love”

    …I’m so sorry, people. After seeing Shatner “sing” today, you don’t deserve this.

  • Cream-A-Thon

    I have a feeling we won’t be lovin’ it. One more – and a time? Need another spin to start this thing off – and a time to host. (I have more to replenish the wheel with after these have been haaaad.)

  • dollar store cashier wife

    It took 30 years to make!

  • Cream-A-Thon

    Shatnervision was ahead of its time, but clearly drugs were better back then. You did your part! 21:30EST/01:30GMT? Another time?

  • Palpatine

    That works for me.

  • James Earl Jones

    Someone may put those two up, for a limited time, later tonight (or perhaps tomorrow, it all depends on someone‘s upload speed).

  • Palpatine

    And if they can find the movies.

  • Pa Kent Says Maybe

    Hey, maggit. I’m good. You good?

  • James Earl Jones

    He’s a claustrophobic, that’s why.

  • Sure. It’s quiet at times without your input, though.

  • James Earl Jones

    Blor Blorn: Mlorn Corn.

  • Pa Kent Says Maybe

    Paul Walker’s movie made a billion dollars. FURY ROAD will limp to a bare profit.

    But, on the plus side, Elvis’ grand-daughter is still alive.

  • Domo_Returns

    I think Mike’s saving that toy for later.

    That Commander Riker toy is awfully lonely in his belly, and #2 needed some friends. Picard was busy at the Chicago Comic Con signing toys for $90 a piece.

  • Cakefarts

    I was quite disappointed by this review. Other than saying in passing that it is good no details or discussion at all was held about Black Spring Break,

  • Uncle Dan

    I’ve actually never eaten a Twinkie, but they featured prominently in two films I rewatched recently: Ghostbusters, and UHF. Aren’t they basically just custard in bar form?

  • veryextremelytrue

    What

  • It’s fine, Pa.

  • Sam

    Based on comments he’s made on the Pre Rec streams, I think Jay really wanted to love this movie.

  • Romantic Placebo

    Oh my god, imagine it. Young boys won’t get their masculine power fantasies from things like The Man From U.N.C.L.E or the next Mission Impossible film. Or god knows whatever The Rock or Chris Pine will star in next.

    Calling feminism an “Outsized influence” is so remarkably inane you must live on Jupiter.

  • Romantic Placebo

    No, that’d be your insipid comment.

  • NOW PLAYING: Disco Godfather. All manholes are invited.

  • Romantic Placebo

    Interesting how neither of them mentions feminism or goes into the arc of Furiosa, and yet the comments are full of people complaining about “feminist influence”…

  • Palpatine

    Yes. This.

    that comment was perfectly timed with Rudy Ray Moore saying the same thing in The Manhole

  • That is true. It’s hard not to time it perfectly. I mean, he repeats that line every 10 seconds throughout the whole movie.

    EDIT: Oh, we’re past the “What has he haaaiiidd?” line.

    Still no talk of feminism, just the vagina monologues and reasoning for why the Brides look like Victoria’s secret models, and it has barely 45 seconds devoted to it. They spend almost twice as longer on the “Is there a Mad Max porn parody” sketch. And don’t forget that that conversation is out of 21:15, only 2.13% of the entire review.

    You’re reaching.

  • Palpatine

    Instead of watching the Italian Mad Max rip-off’s, let’s watch the porn parodies instead!

  • Macke

    Uuum.. Romantic Placebo.
    What exactly are you attempting to say?
    That so called ” Masculine power fantasies ” ( way to go lumping men together and making assumptions about why person X enjoys said movies ).
    Doesn’t have a right to exist?

    Are you the same kind of person that inherently believes that female skin = sex and male skin = power fantasy?
    I think that you would be surprised just how many women actually enjoy and flat out love the plate bikini and character with big boobs, and just how many female artists draw these characters.

    But oh wait. Sorry.
    You live in an imaginary world where all people are clones and men inherently loves X and women inherently loves Y.
    Because people are not individuals? Right?…….

    Have you ever asked yourself why these movies exist?
    And why there’s so many of them?

    You’re making an awful lot of assumptions about both genders, it’s quite astonishing.

    Do you believe that explosions and gunfights = men?
    What exactly is ” feminine power fantasy ” then?
    Boys? Teenage drama? Twilight?

    Because lawd Jesus forbid that women enjoy movies like Kill Bill, Transformers, Mission impossible or The Purge! LAWD FORBID!
    Maybe they even enjoy sexy outfits!? *Gasp* Oh dear Jesus!
    Not sexy outfits!!!!!!

  • It’s sarcasm. tOmy’ was actually first to break the news at RLM about the the shitty MRA reactions to Mad Max.

  • Macke

    Your head would probably explode by the very notion that there exists different cultures too.
    You should spend a day in Japan and look at the content that women consume.

    Do you believe that you can stand up and tell them what to do and enjoy?

    Feminism I’m okay with: Charlize Theron with a robot arm killing men who want to make her a sex slave, or eat her, or something.

    Feminism that everyone who complains about Feminism is thinking about: Getting lectured by a grad student who’s parents are paying $65,000 a year in tuition about how privileged you are.

    There is a difference.

  • andypants1989

    I think a lot of that probably had to do with Miller being a grampa and the in fighting with the studio over what the movie should be. Hopefully now given the response they have given him carte blanche to do whatever he wants with the next one.

    To restore equality on this webzone, I would like to compare both men getting upset over Mad Max with women getting upset over Black Widow not getting her own movie:

    These people are either not understanding a source material / art / target market correctly, or they are idiots. Please note, that these two categories are not mutually exclusive.

    Lacan, once, in a published lecture [that] compared the male sex organ to an imaginary number, the square root of -1.

    Postulating that a signifier, S, divided by what is signified, s, equals a statement, s, Mr. Lacan said that if the signifier is -1, the statement becomes the square root of minus one.

    ”Thus the erectile organ comes to symbolize the place of enjoyment, not in itself, or even in the form of an image, but as a part lacking in the desired image,” he said. ”That is why it is equivalent to the square root of minus one of the signification produced above, of the enjoyment that it restores by the coefficient of its statement to the function of the lack of signifier -1.”

    It’s your fluid dynamics. I.e. You menstruate.
    From the same article above:

    The Belgian-born psychoanalyst and philosopher Luce Irigaray comes in for an equally hard time with her theories, eagerly adopted in some American feminist circles, that much science is sex-biased.
    Not that the idea should be dismissed out of hand, the authors say, but with better logic than she uses when suggesting that male science favors solid mechanics over fluid mechanics because men do not menstruate.

  • Uncle Dan

    My DC knowledge is pretty much entirely based on the movies and videogames, never got into the comics, but…

    Man, DC Justice League just loves multiverse stories. This really won’t translate well into film. Characters travelling to multiple timelines and alternate worlds and cooperating or hating their alternate selves and it’s just weird. It works in a videogame or a comic book but it would be so weird in a movie.

  • Domo_Returns

    It’s Plinkett’s way or the highway.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    the only way Fury Raod could pale against the original would be script wise but that is extremely debatable since it’s the same thing basically(loose allegories,slim characterization,black humor and some neat wordbuilding).Filmmaking wise it’s not even on the same ballpark.

  • Uncle Dan

    Since this is one of the best action films of all time, the topic of discussion here makes It it abundantly evident that nearly all of you have never been near a vagina in your entire lives and likely never will.

    So say that like its a bad thing. I could watch another five hours of charlize theron kicking ass in the desert. This is the character we should have gotten in Prometheus but were denied either because of a poor script or bad directing.

  • Jay Stein

    Think, Wonder Woman. I love that show because Diana is always saving the Boob Kernel from getting kidnapped. She’s always untying from a chair is seems. But the Show is Called “Wonder Woman” not “Dumbass Kernel” or whatever he is. The movie is called Mad Max but the story seems to be about Charlize Therons character, which is fine by me because as Jay said Max is the vehicle for the universe that Miller created. Some may get annoyed at that. I personally think in a world like Mad Max’s the situation of the movie is highly likely

  • I’ll just put in my two cents since it’s gonna be discussed here regardless (and apparently already has);

    The whole, “MRAs want to boycott this movie”-thing originated from one stupid article on one unironically cringeworthy site. Had it been left to that, it’s likely nobody would have given a shit about the feminism angle of the movie. However, every news/clickbait site and their mother had to decry the fact that possibly five dudebros were going to avoid seeing the film, and now it’s become a big thing among both hardcore feminists/SJWs and MRAs.
    I can personally attest that several people I know, who would have had no interest in this movie otherwise, are now going to see it, or have seen it, pretty much out of spite for that RoK article.
    The cynic in me can’t help but see this as a marketing ploy to get a few extra bucks from an audience that might not have seen it otherwise; drumming up controversy over an otherwise unimportant article the average person is unlikely to read, let alone be influenced by. It just seems so transparent, but everyone would rather indulge in righteous outrage than take a breath, calm down, and reply with an appropriate “Eh, whatever,” and get on with their lives.

    I must say I’m shocked that something like the Male Rights Activists thing is a real thing.

  • Jean-François Martel

    it sounds painful… i’m sure charlize would enjoy doing this to people

  • Jean-François Martel

    we’re all shocked… shocked and embarrassed

  • Percy Gryce

    I’ve always thought that Mike and I were in sync, but he has seen neither The Road Warrior nor Big Trouble in Little China? WTF?!?

  • WrongWithYourFace

    I thought you just said you couldn’t watch it?

  • Why have we been sending him Nukies all these years when he could have gotten a generous serving of Jack Burton?

  • RLMkeepitup

    It’s been my observation that activist groups latch onto events, however minor, which serve as fuel to advance their cause(s). The majority of media outlets are also super liberal, nearly to the point of annoyance, for their own purposes. It was probably just a confluence of that. That said it seems a good movie so hopefully it makes them forget why they went in.

  • Percy Gryce

    Well, I just got back from the recital. I wanted to make that comment earlier but I didn’t have time.

  • Palpatine

    Yet he’s seen Star Trek: Intersection or whatever the fuck it’s called.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    I can’t get over the fact that Rich has never seen Carpenter’s The Thing.

  • Ron Biggle

    One nitpicky issue that I had with the film was that there were too many guns. Not even just from a “they were scarce in Road Warrior, how are they so abundant now?” perspective, because I guess if they had the infrastructure to make agriculture and whatnot they could probably figure out how to make more bullets.

    There were a few parts in the final chase where a warboy jumps onto the hood of the heros’ rig, and I was expecting them to rev the engine and shoot fire at him, or slam him into another car or something, but nope. An old lady pops up with a gun and shoots him. And he goes “ugh” and fall over. Gunplay is usually the exciting part of an action film, but I just feel like in the Mad Max universe, killing people with guns is kinda boring.

  • Domo_Returns

    You’re supposed to watch this HiTB during your daughter’s dance recital.

    If you can sync the crappy piano music to their dancing, it’ll be that much more exciting.

  • Crixxxx

    Don’t tease Black Spring Break in the thumbnail if there ain’t gonna be no Black Spring Break in the vid!

  • Domo_Returns

    Jack’s never seen The Room, either.

    Jessi’s probably seen all these films, though.

    Because Jessi rocks.

  • Palpatine

    ???

  • “For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.”

    For every pink-haired hipster twink tweeting about “toxic masuclinity” and how the all their failings can be attributed to the patriarchy, there’s a neckbeard in their mom’s basement railing against the “feminization of culture” as the reason women aren’t throwing themselves upon them.

    It’s basic physics.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    I’m going to assume it is a parody movement, just for shits and giggles, troll the internet.

  • Percy Gryce

    I tried. There was neither wifi nor mobile connections.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    I don’t know if that’s changed, but Rich has said a couple of times he hadn’t seen The Thing.

  • Domo_Returns

    You need to send your kids to a better schooling environment so you have access to wifi at all times. I’m sure the wife will understand that $20k tuition upcharge for this necessity.

  • Palpatine

    Where did he say that?

  • That’s how I feel too. Even if it’s possibly a slimy way of getting more ticket sales, it at least seems like a movie that deserves more seats in the theatre.

  • fuckstick

    They have some genuine complaints but they do themselves a disservice by trying to be the other side of the feminist coin. But that is really the problem with all of it, unemployment, mental and physical health, domestic violence, etc, these are all problems regardless of your sex but get ignored cause our social values are fucked. But then again there are also a lot of MRAers, that are for lack of a better word, nuts.

  • RLMkeepitup

    I recall him saying that as well.

  • Nope. Unfortunately it’s real.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    Hmm, the streams? Not sure if he said it in the Alien commentrack too. I think his reasoning was he is not a horror movie guy. I think in that stream where they are playing a gladiator game he might’ve mentioned it. Can’t remember exactly.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    We should form a massive riot that makes Baltimore look like an angry internet comment in response to Mike’s foolish actions.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    I rather believe the lie.

  • WrongWithYourFace

    That made me laugh.

    Don’t worry, I’ve been there too. Sometimes you gotta sacrifice accuracy for comedic flow.

  • Percy Gryce

    Whoa, big fella. Let’s not get carried away there.

    I am actually sad, though, that Mike won’t ever see The Road Warrior. As I said in an earlier thread, I rewatch that movie at least once a year.

  • Like Icare

    Lots of wasted time…

  • WrongWithYourFace

    Like you care…

  • Domo_Returns

    The war boys load up their mouths with silver spray paint and kamikaze into nearby cars with explosive spears in each hand.

    If anything, the gun shooting scenes were a much needed break.

  • Percy Gryce

    Nobody knows the troubles I’ve seen.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    You will have to settle for Jay, who does love those movies. If Omitted is fine with it.

  • Percy Gryce

    I know. It’s weird, but I’m really warming up to that bearded dwarf.

    Speaking of which, Game of Thrones is on. So I’m going to sign off and go watch the finale of Mad Men.

    Ciao, babies.

  • Captain Turbo

    Word!

  • Captain Turbo

    No crossbow on the wrist? I will not see this movie if there is no crossbow on the wrist!

  • Mel B Toast

    I loved Fury Road. So many scenes where I had a grin on my face. I kept waiting for (dreading) that moment that happens in action movies, where it becomes noise and chaos and I zone out and think about what I need to pick up at the store later. But it never happened here, even though it was constant action from start to finish. Internal motivation, clear goals and understandable action seem to be these magical elements.

    I also liked the sound. The “ears ringing” sound after a gun went off near Max was a nice touch. And the guitar would be in the background for me, until they showed the guitar guy. And I was like, “Oh yeah! The soundtrack is a character in the movie!” Reminded me of the first Mad Max, where a sax soundtrack plays and then the camera pans to a woman playing the sax. Great audio gag both times.

    Now I’m watching Ghoulies 3: Goulies Go to College. As good a film as Fury Road?

  • Jason

    This is the first time I actually stopped watching when they said “spoilers”.

  • fuckstick

    I completely agree no mad max film is complete without the licorice ride.
    https://youtu.be/wiFAXI8JeWU

  • I hadn’t even heard of this nontroversy until I saw this comment. But that’s because I avoid any social activist media as much as I can, because so much of it these days, as you said, is trivial bullshit over shit like this fight between angry men and angry feminists, like who gives a shit?? Either you go see the movie or you don’t. fuck.

    But it is so much easier for people to consume media like this, rather than other social issues that actually impact people’s lives.

    That being said I’ll go see this movie for myself and decide on my own if the “feminist” angle is too heavy-handed, because as a strong independent womyn I find that annoying as hell, but judging by what people are saying, that doesn’t seem to be the case.

  • Uncle Dan

    I miss her.

    I saw this weird comment on one of the YouTube videos where someone suggested that there was a domestic dispute and so she wouldn’t be coming back?

    Which just strikes me as honestly unbelievable. If it’s a joke it’s in horrible taste.

  • Domo_Returns

    She can be heard in the last BOTW. My guess is she’s still around.

  • Uncle Dan

    And still going strong, if “Edge of Tomorrow” is anything to go by.

  • Zinsch

    It took 30 years to make? Must be better than Boyhood then.

  • Uncle Dan

    Not to mention the James Bond movies. Classic Bond seems right up Mike’s manhole.

  • Review was on point even if they did Tom Brady my balls with the Black Spring Break cocktease. And while I’ve still been waiting for an Ex Machina review, it was cool to see that I’m on the same page as Jay with Blue Ruin and Under The Skin.

  • Bubs

    A discussion about a political topic that barely matters to anyone discussing it? ‘

  • From what I’ve heard the “intrusive feminist propaganda” in the movie boils down to a woman trying to save her friends from being sex slaves.

    So yeah, you can see how awful and agenda-pushing that could be.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    I came from the movie like an hour ago and let me tell you something if you do not see this movie you are a stupid asshole. This is the greatest heavy metal ever made. In terms of enjoyment I loved this movie. The action was raw, intense, there was speed and it felt real. It wasn’t like Avengers Joss Whedon fun, which is fun on it’s own, it was fun in the sense that this movie is insane. It has a flamethrower guitar! The characters are all fantastic especially the women. Now some of you know that I don’t like all this “feminists” because they don’t know how to write bad ass female characters. George Miller can because he’s not pushing some sort of diversity agenda. This are just women who happen to kick ass, and one of them is naked for some reason. Immortan Joe is an awesome villain, Nux is a great relatable character, Max is still Max, and Furiousa is awesome. Excellent pacing, great acting, beautiful cinematography. If you do not see this movie I will be ashamed of you. This is one of my favorite films in years. Also the music is great, this guy is making the new Batman theme which will be cool.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Jack was viciously mauled by fans of The Room as they chanted “Hi, doggy!”

  • Wizard Phoenix

    No, but there’s a fat lady’s tits

  • and unless I am wrong, most of these self-identifying MRAs are white men, when most of those social issues you just listed effect minorities, who don’t have much of a voice online. So all those issues that actually do hurt men get ignored by feminists because all they see is that angry shouting white man complaining about feminism, and at the end of they day nothing is achieved when you have these two groups arguing against each other.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    That article that spoke against this bad ass film was written by some stupid idiot who thinks he was oppressed. The writer was literally the opposite of that annoying Anita lady and just as smart. Why do people think that everything in the media is out to get them? It’s just a fucking movie or game.

  • Lt Hurwitz

    Some things labeled feminism are good.

    Some things labeled feminism are bad.

    Not all things are only good, or only bad. The people criticizing this movie don’t get that…unless you’re the whiny SJW know it all type, then I disagree with whatever you think about this phony controversy (which some “MRA” site ginned up for clicks).

  • In The Court Of The Evans King
  • Domo_Returns

    The nice thing with the women in this film is that their background determines their fighting style. Everything is setup ahead of time so that you know what each person is capable of doing.

    Spoilers, although this probably takes away some of the beauty of the film, not major plot points.

    All the breeder chicks have never been out in the real world, so it’s not like they’re using machine guns and decapitating people. They’re almost human shields, where they know they can use their bodies to block attacks because they know the bad guy won’t let them become damaged goods.

    Furiosa is a good shot, and even without her metal arm she can pack a punch. But she doesn’t know combat moves or anything. She fights instinctually, and uses objects to do harm. She’s a quick thinker and probably relies as much on instinct as Max does because of their backgrounds.

    The old women use stealthy baiting tactics. They hide in the sand and shoot whatever comes after their bait. They can only do so much with close range attacking, and it shows.

    It’s kinda genius, really. It’s like George Miller planned a “Lets play War” type of game, and set up what each group of people was capable of doing, showing all their strengths and weaknesses without saying any words.

  • Joseph Archer

    This episode got pretty slow in the middle but picked up a lot by the end

  • Andrew Thompson.

    he is a 5foot tall verry hairy manTroll. he’s not so much a rights activist as a sad bitter lonly tool.

  • Andrew Thompson.

    wich one is the road warrior? mad max 1 or 2. the amreican re-branding makes it confusing. and do you watch it with the origonal australian soundtrack or the U.S over-dub version?

  • Andrew Thompson.

    Here is a fun experiment you can do at home.
    watch the mad max: fury road trailer and then the tyerminator gyenysys. trailer.
    terminator looks fake, cartoony and poorly made.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Miller used basic logic when it came to writing the characters. Unlike the Anita lady who thinks that the best way to make a bad ass female character is if she just acts man but acknowledges she’s a woman a lot. The best way to write women is to write them as real people and not a vehicle for an agenda. The Marvel movies as an example have been doing this very well too. I think the best way to describe the movie and it’s writing is that it’s realistic in the sense of it’s characters. So this movie is a big fuck you to assholes pushing agendas. George Miller is one badass grandpa.

  • Uncle Dan

    When RLM did their “All trailers are the same” video I was just thinking that the Guardians of the Galaxy and Mad Max Fury Road both had rather interesting trailers that suggested their movies would be different from the usual stuff.

    Going to see Fury Road tomorrow, but so far creative movies also having creative trailers would seem to be a good trend.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    It’s sad that I hate what I have seen so far out of Terminator: Fuck You Roughly. I don’t want to but I do. Now granted this all based on what the pressed as release and hey I hated the promotion for Edge of Tomorrow and I loved it. But I just don’t know if it will be that case.

  • Rolls Canhardly

    It’s also a story element that’s entirely plausible. It would be less plausible to leave it out. You just need to look at assholes like Boko Horom and ISIS and how women are treated in third world countries to see what would happen to in a post apocalyptic world without law and order. Women fighting back against that is not feminism. It’s humanism.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    But it’s not if you see the fucking movie.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    There was a moment when a lady face covering her face when Max tried to blow Nux’s hand off. IT WAS AMAZING TOO!

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Next week is Tomorrowland. Don’t worry my flawed friend it will loose money because apparently not a lot of people liked it.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    We need one of Taxi Driver rip offs first.

  • Andrew Thompson.

    i dont think i’m going to hate T:G it but Mad Max has reset the bar for making action movies and i can see myself being distracted by the fake looking CGI.

  • Jaws Eats Pussy’s

    so what is with the all the anti-american propaganda in this video if i dint know any better i’d swear this is a recruitment tool for islamic jihadists

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Yeah you’re right. As much as I am looking forward to Ant Man and Jurassic World I just saw the best action film so far this decade.

  • Mohamad Taufiq Morshidi

    This.

    Terminator Genytals/Genyric/Geriartryc has no heart compared to Fury Road.

  • Mohamad Taufiq Morshidi

    The thing interesting though is that both George Miller and James Gunn came from schlock backgrounds and when you give them a big budget you get a spectacle.

    It’s basically commissioning a small-town Chinese fireworks maker to curate the 4th of July Fireworks Display.

  • andypants1989

    Can we add a viewing of the Thing to the Manhole please?

  • hybridm0ments

    I saw the movie today and really enjoyed it. It was basically 2 hour chase scene. Very well paced. Great characters. Visuals were unstoppable. The guitar guy was a stroke of genius. Hardy did a great job and kicked some ass.

    The other Mad Max movies have chase scenes but this is a roller coaster that you never get off.

    My only regret is that he didn’t kick ass IN the charger.

  • andypants1989

    I think these guys both made great big budget movies because they’re used to working with smaller budgets and putting every single dollar on the screen.

  • andypants1989

    SPOILERS

    I was so shocked and emotionally devastated when the charger got destroyed.

  • GayForJay

    It’s gotten wrecked in every one since Road Warrior…

  • hybridm0ments

    No it comes back… he says “that’s mine” in the chase near the end… I thought he would use one of those flippy poles to get on it and smash a few people – but they failed me in that.

  • Romantic Placebo

    Okay, Aristotle.

  • hybridm0ments

    Fuck that. Rock Flag and Eagle.

  • Domo_Returns

    But they were repairing it.

    My hope is that in the next film, Max gets his charger back with a full death metal slaughtershop quartet and a 20 piece orchestra on top of his car.

    For a little refinement, of course.

  • Romantic Placebo

    So was Paul Blart.

  • Jay Stein

    Well, he won’t play Bioshock either

  • Mohamad Taufiq Morshidi

    And the thing about both GoTG and Fury Road is that they’re both grounded in its premise in a way compared to stuff like Age of Ultron and Man of Steel, and the more grounded it gets the more easy it is for things like stunts, effects and visuals to shine.

  • hybridm0ments

    Fury Road took like 7 months in post production… it should look amazing.

  • Uncle Dan

    It sort of hurts when people tell me they’re excited for the new Terminator. The irony is that most of them haven’t even seen the first one, so they don’t really recognise how it’s shitting on how great that movie was.

  • fred

    hm

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Someone hasn’t seen the first Terminator?! THAT IS IMPOSSIBLE! DOES NOT COMPUTE!

  • andypants1989

    I though he wandered off into the crowd as soon as they got back, didn’t see it getting repaired.

  • Domo_Returns

    It was getting worked on in the beginning, when he jumped over it trying to escape, right? Miller also said that this was gonna be a little bit like a trilogy, so most likely he’s gonna get his wheels back.

  • Uncle Dan

    Some people just want new, better special effects, and movies that don’t feel like they were made in the 80s. Granted, they’re the kind of people who like the Star Wars prequels more because they like cool fight scenes.

    I know, I know, There there.

  • Michael Collins

    I was completely entertained by this episode…even though I have to wait another month before it opens here…

    I hope it picks up steam at the box office, Hollywood needs to see there is a place for action AND quality in the same movie..

  • hybridm0ments

    Yeah it’s the car he pulls the Duke Boys over in the beginning.

  • Dasby

    So what I’m gathering from this comments section is that there needs to be some kind of best of the worst special episode featuring a James Bond movie, Carpenter’s The Thing, and The Road Warrior.

  • Dasby

    Think he said it in the Halloween commentary track.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Well I don’t need to say I need to kill myself because I already am due to my loyalty to Chunky’s Chicken.

  • Uncle Dan

    More like Worst of the Best!

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Are you saying people should go MAD for this movie?

  • hybridm0ments

    Next weekend is a long weekend in the states and people will want to see something. I bet it picks up.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    The plot of the new Mad Max game is Max getting his car back.

  • Amontillado

    Holy shit, did I just see the production values on HitB kick up several notches? Boys, I think HitB is going primetime and that ain’t bad!

  • DanceOfBirther

    I constantly have the first two films confused due to all that rebranding crap. It makes me feel like Mike on BOTW, minus the “worst fucking thing I’ve ever seen.”

  • DanceOfBirther

    But the latter two are good movies.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    The fuck you talking about?

  • Amontillado

    Did you see, they have opening credits now! They used to not have that, but having it now, it’s kind of amazing, like finding a nickel.

  • Palpatine

    It’ll go primetime on the local public access channel in Milwaukee.

  • DanceOfBirther

    I took a break from watching F.A.R.T. The Movie to see this. Due to the fact that I no longer follow movies, I didn’t even realize George Miller directed this, and just figured it was more Hollwood trashing of great old movies… oops.

    Now back to F.A.R.T. The Movie (I don’t wanna let this crap beat me) and later Mad Max: Fury Road.

    yeah you dont want to do that! whole towns her get cut off for months by 1-200 km wide rivers and the mud can literally swallow a car whole.

  • TapewormVelocipede

    That is exactly why I would want to do that. But, yeah, probably no sane crew would. Fast and Furious 69?

  • Bubs

    I can’t understand where all this feminism stuff is coming from. As we all know, women are inferior to men in every way. Any attempt to present a woman as being smarter, stronger, or better at giving birth than a man is just a FARCE.

  • Andrew Thompson.

    i never said that. i mentioned the CGI treehouse at the lucas ranch and Jorge.
    given the massive veil of secrecy around Tomorrowland i have no real opinion on it.

  • TapewormVelocipede

    I was talking to the imaginery reviewer, not you. I think it was a woman, too. Chicks, always want to watch post-apocalyptic car chases and that.

    Also god damn, when Mike and Jay are engaged with a movie… it makes an internet man remember why he watched these frauds in the first place.

    Jindabyne isn’t bad for a boring Aussie drama.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JUyPfD1cHVU

    The biggest problem with Australian films is almost all of them are boring dramas.

    It’s a fucking outrage considering the quality experimental grindhouse films we were producing in the 70s.

    Literally every Australian film for the last ten years has been dreary mumblecore. There are some tolerable ones here and there, but most of them are just wretched.

  • Andrew Thompson.

    thats the problem. film makers here are either desert action or City comedy or mountains drama.
    lets mix that shit up!

    I actually didn’t mind that one, which is surprising seeing as I’ve hated almost everything else Mick Molly has done. Remember his terrible late night show? Australia is the only country that could have a late night war between four networks which ends with every single contender being cancelled.

  • Andrew Thompson.

    i loved the late show. i was a teenager at the time.
    but mick molloy’s movies never had the resonance of the Working Dogs movies like The Castle and The Dish.
    cause mick is a lazy drunk.

    So there can be some guys who talk about movies and only has seen the third (and the worst) Mad Max movie?

    And Fury Road is a nice movie, but considering it is not even the part of the original universe, saying it is the best of the all Mad Max movies is a huge stretch.

    This is going to fucking suck. Lindelofs only gimmick is inserting unexplained events into films and tv shows in a generally failed attempt to breed interest in future instalments, of course the explanations aren’t pre-planned so they always suck. I thought people had caught on to this by now.

  • TapewormVelocipede

    I don’t think Lindelof was the first name people were thinking about when hearing about it. It on the surface looks like a perfect fit for Bird’s retro-future style.

  • Like Icare

    Nope.
    Apparently, Hollywood seems to be the gathering of some of the most superficial, vacuous and uninsightful people in the world.
    Whodathunkit for a town which lives by the rule of “young and pretty”, “being a star” and the idea that everything can be shrunk down to tweet-sized concepts which can then just as easily be expanded out into movie trilogies.

  • Andrew Thompson.

    But you can’t know that when you’re planning the movie and he seems to be the guy with all the ideas in the room…
    Surely he has a plan how to make them work… And there are such great ideas, who wouldn’t want to see them on the screen…

    He’s quite probably owing his career to other people’s wishful thinking.

    It was advertised by Lindelof himself a lot… and whenever Brad Bird was there, Lindelof was there too…

    As for Bird…

    I fear that the ideas (Cause that’s all Lindelof has – no story or characters – just “Wouldn’t it be cool if…” ideas.) of “secret special people run/save the world because they are special – unlike the plebs.” also strongly resonated with him.

    I get a strong Randian vibe from the guy… Remember how if everyone’s special then no one is?

    To be fair, it doesn’t mean that there isn’t still room for improvement or area for critique. You don’t have to agree or even listen, but I think discussion in itself is healthy.

    People make it too quickly into either loving or hating anything. I would like to see more gender and ethnic diversity in the media I consume. Doesn’t mean that what I already consume is bad, or that I just want diversity for diversity’s sake. I mean, shit, I watch movies with robots, aliens and monsters with character to them. The least anyone can do is offer existent diversity the same care and opportunity.

    It’s pretty awesome when compared to Czech Republic. Few years ago, we ordered some super-new, badass automatic rifles. But it turned out that, I seriously shit you not, their handles were too slippery. Basically what that means is when a soldier started shooting, the gun was slipping out of his hand.

    I will let that one sink in for a bit.

    We also bought some new aircraft… but then we realized we don’t exactly have pilots for them.

    So I presume our battleplan is to throw jets and guns on enemy heads, while the rest of the country says: “Oh fuck, not again. Guys, could you do us a favor and kill the president first? Thanks. We will wait in a pub.”

    One of the big debates here over the last few years is whether to buy new fighter jets or not. The issue is that the Swiss air force likes to have its weekends off, and then lets the French monitor Swiss airspace on the weekend.

    So basically some people think the military should have weekends off, and some people don’t and want to spend millions of Francs so that they don’t.

  • Andrew Thompson.

    that sounds like here. we sold out fighter training air craft to New Zealand, because WE felt they needed more fighters.
    then we realised we needed Trainers and leased them back from NZ.
    NZ went “cool as, now we dont need an air force at all. australias going to do it”
    and now we are their air force too but we pay them for the privilege.

  • Bubs

    So I just got done watching Hellraiser, which is a great, creepy classic horror film which I’ve seen probably 100 times.

    However, it has one of the most baffling endings ever caught on film. For those who haven’t seen it: a homeless man who looks like Jesus (and only appeared in one previous scene where he ate a handful of crickets for no apparent reason) walks up to a burning pyre to steal the “puzzlebox”. In doing so, he catches on fire and burns to death horribly, only to reveal that he was secretly a demon-skeleton-bat-creature. He then flies off into the night and either becomes a Chinese man or delivers the puzzle box to a Chinese man.

    Why can’t more movies end like this?

  • Mr Wombat

    Great review! Great movie. About the only thing I didn’t like was when the car Max is chained to the top of crashes and flips at speed inside the dust storm, and he regains consciousness hours later, unscathed. This gives the impression Max is superhuman, and takes away some of the tension: if Max can’t be hurt, why should we be worried about him? Also, it’s a contradiction: after suffering a leg injury in the first film, Max has worn a kind of knee brace in subsequent films, including this one. Maybe he just got lucky this time?

    But aside from that, this is the first movie in a long time that I’ve wanted to go back and see again the very next day. Just to be immersed in George Miller’s crazy, dystopian universe for another two hours.

    Near the end, we see an unfortunate legless man crawl out of his hiding hole like some kind of sand crab. It reminded me of Alejandro Jodorowski’s surreal ’70s films, El Topo and Holy Mountain. It seemed in those films the director relished showing deformity and missing limbs, for shock value, and to enhance the strangeness. El Topo was also set in the desert. An influence on George Miller, perhaps?

    I really hope this film crushes The Avengers 2 at the box office (given that the Marvel film has a $1 billion head start, that’s a bit of a long shot!) But most of all, if Fury Road influences filmmakers to craft their action sequences a little more, and cut back on the CGI, that would be awesome.

    And FYI: George Miller said that:

    “If you put a gun to my head, I’d say after Thunderdome,
    but it’s very loose. I can’t even work out the chronology of the first,
    second and third, let alone the fourth thirty years later.”

    There is no WTF in here. That was Mad Max 2 (also known as “Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior”), there is a thing called a “typing in a hurry” and I did just that.

    The first film was banned in Finland at that time (80’s), so I had to wait until I saw it from a laserdisc during the 90’s.

    Australia is one of my favourite countries and I would gladly visit it some day, if I had a chance.

    I was a bit sad to hear that Fury Road was filmed mostly in Africa. I always love that original Australia setting, including the dialect.

    When I started collecting DVD’s 15 years ago, one of my first movies was the first Mad Max, with original dialog track.
    And during those days, the only DVD version available was the R2 Japan DVD, so I ordered it from there.

    All others were dubbed in American English. So gross!

    The problem with RLMedium merch is that I wanna buy as much crap as possible, but I don’t like what are they offering (except digital downloads of their so called movies).

    I wanted to do some custom stuff just for myself, but then I would feel like ripping them off. I wanted to quickly design some basic t-shirts on redbubble.com and (since a portion of said money goes to “artist”) donate everything I get to Patreon. But I am too lazy for that.

  • Charon

    NO. It’s good, but it’s definitely not “the best album of the decade.” That honor belongs to Tay Sway’s “1989”.

    In all seriousness, it’s up there, but I have to say Aphex Twin’s SYRO beats it, based on sheer production quality and the talent associated with it. Richard D. James didn’t need 15 guest artists to make one of the most subversive, yet accessible electronic albums to date.

  • tOmy`

    Oh, definitely. That is why I said “one of”. I think it is close to impossible to crown one king (#sexist) and if I were to do that, it would be a very tight match between Radiohead and SYRO; solely because that is some boundaries smashing stuff.

    But RAM is really creatively up on the top with all the other big players.

  • omitted

    Hold me, Andrew!

  • Charon

    I only rebuffed so strongly because the general consensus of Daft Punk is like, “OMG, da best thang EVAR” or “Electro-geniuses” when really, they’re just regular ol’ french house artists with a funk twist. They aren’t doing anything groundbreaking, it’s just really well-produced club banger music.

    Since I trust your opinion, and we’re on a site that’s movie-oriented, can I just say that the 2013 Boards of Canada album Tomorrow’s Harvest is one of the most underrated and under-appreciated albums of the decade? It draws influence from so many film composers of the ’70s and 80’s, and delivers that well-produced, expertly-delivered aesthetic that BoC is known for. Tomorrow’s Harvest was criticized for being “too repetitive” and “sounding too much like BoC”, but it’s like people forget how a motif works, or don’t quite grasp the level of depth the album delivers, given the context. Any thoughts?

  • Uncle Dan

    I remember that they kept it fairly vague, just that the invaders were somehow foreign and sufficiently different. So it could have been Indonesia, hey?

  • tOmy`

    I didn’t hear it, but I am gonna go for it asap and let you know. There are many albums that slipped through my eardrums in past years (yet another reason why I hesitate from “crowing the king”). But the whole “repetitiveness” and “dullness” is used way too often I think. I heard these words describing the last BECK’s album and for what it is worth: If you say such thing, well, you don’t get it and this music is not for you – no biggie, just don’t judge something you cannot grasp. But that obviously came from the pro-Kanye and pro-Beyonce camp and quite honestly, I really don’t feel like these people have valid opinions very often.

    Which somehow brings me to what you said: “OMG, da best thang EVER”. Exactly. If we view an electronic music as a whole, Daft Punk are somewhat of a discoball. And that is it. They are not the geek kind, they are not the immersive kind, they are there to have some fun and get lucky. I think they do realize that, hence their name. But I really love the idea behind RAM when they said: “You know, we sampled a lot in the past so this time, we want to make a music close to what we sampled from, so other people can sample us.” I think that is one of the cutest, down-to-earth, honest approaches I have seen. And with that obviously comes the spotlight they gave to every producer they worked with.

    If I can recommend something that I value a lot from the past decade and that is, at least from my own perspective, massively underrated and unappreciated album, I have to go with of Montreal’s Lousy With Sylvianbriar: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBuIc2p3xXA

    That is one tight album and quite possibly one of the best lyrics I heard… well, I am not gonna say ever, but I think this is almost as good as it gets.

  • tOmy`

    I love this commercial.

  • Uncle Dan

    The politics and character arcs were the best part.

    Still, there was some thought involved in designing the space battles. They rarely showed large ships close to each other in combat to keep the distances of space vague. Things like that. Sure, there was still sound in space and whatnot, but the attention to detail is really cool.

    The sad thing is that Star Trek is also known for being detailed in its approach to sci fi space travel, but made the battles of the Dominion War look really dumb as vague masses of ships move on a more or less 2 dimensional plane. It was distracting.

  • Uncle Dan

    I did get two posters, signed too, which is cool. I’d like a Red Letter Media shirt but it’s expensive (especially considering shipping) and anyway they seem to always be out of them.

    I loved Beck’s Morning Phase, it was a refreshing take on his Sea Change-era sound, and not that I didn’t like Modern Guilt, but that album felt rather contrived and rushed in comparison to MP. As for Of Montreal, I LOVE psych-pop, and I liked their album Cherry Peel a whole lot. I have a ton of good memories associated with it. I haven’t heard Lousy with Sylvianbriar yet. I will now listen to it, in the background, while we type about awesome music.

    Back to Boards of Canada, I really dig their shit so goddamned much. If you haven’t heard much of it, they, as a group, really transcend the whole contemporary downtempo/trip-hop scene that has obviously ripped them off since their mainstream debut, Music Has the Right to Children. I’d highly recommend it to anyone with good musical taste. 🙂

  • tOmy`

    The more you talk about it, the more I am interested. Especially since you brought up trip-hop and downtempo. These are generally really underrated and unappreciated genres. I am gonna have to disappear, as the daily beer requests my attention.

    I wasn’t that much into Sea Change beforehand, I think mostly because I discovered BECK with Modern Guilt (an album that I freakishly love). Sea Change was most likely one of the last albums by him that really grew on me. And that is good, because without that, I think I would have hard time appreciating Morning Phase for what it is.

    of Montreal’s Lousy is a bit “different” to their other stuff, especially since it is not that crazy; it is very reserved album, this time with a nice amount of cynicism and some very dark lyrics, Definitely a different kind of a beast from their previous work, especially the music streamlining is very apparent.

    Anyways, I shall get back to you later! And I know we are on the movies page and all, but no worries, my evil plans to change this webzone into music forum are on their way.

    I started listening to Beck as a youngster, with albums like Mellow Gold and Odelay!. He was originally a psych-pop/trip-hop artist in his own right, and that’s what drew me to his music. It was goofy, interesting, and fresh, especially when compared to the music that was popular at the time, American house/club music.

    I have to say, that Of Montreal album is pretty fucking great. I’m five tracks in, and I’m wanting to go to the record store to find a copy of it. I also saw you talking about Ulver up there in the comments, and they are, for me, one of those bands who emerged from the electronic/industrial era without becoming exactly like their contemporaries, American or otherwise.

    And obviously, I can be tangential about music for days. 🙂 Enjoy the day! Thanks for the interesting conversation.

    Tonight in The Manhole:

    Action has a new password, and the password is Swordfish!

    From the cinematic geniuses who brought you Sharknado and Sharktopus comes the hit Asylum film Swordfish. When an insane scientist combines the DNA of a sword with the DNA of a fish, he unleashes a terror upon the fisheries of New England. Half sword, half fish, ALL deadly.

    With conventional military forces at a loss to stop the beast it falls to an unlikely group of morally ambiguous individuals. Catwoman (Halli Burton), Wolverine (Hugh Jassman), and Terl (Terl) must learn to put their differences aside and come together to kick some serious bass.

    Will they lure the monster to a quick demise, or are they just trolling for disaster? Come dace to dace with terror in this film of epic fish portions. There’s no trout it will make a splash with audiences. Repent, for the Apollockalypse is aprawn us! Albacourse it will thrill-

    Oh who am I kidding. It’s got Halle Berry’s tits in it. I don’t know what the fuck the rest of the film is about but presumably neither does anyone else because that’s all everyone remembers it for.

    21:00 GMT.

  • overg

    Yup. It’s one of those movies that nails exactly what it was going for. On the Roger Ebert scale of “it’s not what the movie is about, it’s about how well it does what it’s about”, this one is damned near perfect.

  • overg

    He’s not the sidekick. Rather, he and Furiosa (Charlize Theron’s character) are pretty much equally important. For that matter, several other characters have tremendous agency too, although they’re not quite as featured.

    Basically, there a lot of really well-drawn characters in this movie. It’s not just about Max.

  • Mark Andrew Edwards

    Interesting. I go to see a Mad Max movie to see Max (Road Warrior is my favorite). Anyway, sounds like I need to see it to judge. Probably do that Tuesday.

  • overg

    You can definitely follow this movie without having seen the first three. Although you might want to watch the first three anyway. At least one of them (Road Warrior) is pretty much considered a classic, and a lot of people like, or at least appreciate, the other two, too.

  • overg

    Definitely worth seeing in a theater. I’d recommend 2D, on the biggest, best screen you can find. Although Real 3D was a lot of fun too, the 3D was a bit distracting. It’s not available in IMAX where I’m at, so I can’t comment on that.

    *BIG* definitely serves this movie well.

  • overg

    No brushing up needed. Max’s family was killed. He went kind of nuts. There was an apocalypse.

    There, you now know absolutely everything you need to know (and you can pick up that from the first five minutes of Fury Road, anyway).

  • overg

    It even gets re-loaded!

  • Pa Kent Says Maybe

    Haven’t seen it. No plans to. Did it have a lot of dick sucking in it? SPOILERS!

  • overg

    The biggest problem with this movie is remembering to fucking breath during the action scenes. And given those can go on for about 20 minutes, that’s a long damned time to remember to exhale.

  • overg

    I saw it in both 2D and 3D, both times on a Regal RPX screen.

    I preferred the 2D, as the 3D is mildly distracting, but I’d emphasize the “mildly” part of that. I wouldn’t hesitate to see it in 3D if that’s your only option. It definitely deserves to be seen in a theater.

  • WormCalledLuke

    If anybody feels like reading and imagining, here’s a draft of the JLA movie that was gonna be shot by George Miller (scroll down, you lazy ADHD fucks) http://www.superheromoviesnews.com/2013/10/exclusive-leaked-justice-league-mortal.html

  • Domo_Returns

    Tape, I’ve known you a long time. I know you want to be a colorful orange worm with cute eyebrows drawn by Jovial Bob Stine, but that’s not what you’re meant to be. You’re made of felt. Green felt. There is nothing wrong with being made of felt.

    Your beady eyes and blank expression put all the focus on the wonderful shit you spouted to the right of your profile pic. Plus, we’re practically related because of our feltness. Don’t leave me all by my lonesome. Prosím.

    Plus, there’s nothing wrong with being a tapeworm on a bike. It’s so much easier riding around a person’s intestinal tract that way. Even a lady bicycle gets the job done. In your current state, you’ll probably starve to death and get excreted into this horrible world through someone’s man hole. And nobody wants that. Except Jay, probably. And maybe Omitted.

  • Like Icare

    No it doesn’t. And I’d hardly call my ramblings “literate”.
    It’s closer to graphorrhea.

    Anyway… You seem to be arguing that they give him jobs out of pity – throwing him a bone.

    I’m saying that he might be if not smooth then a very impassioned talker and quick in creating ideas – which people confuse with creativity and creative ability.

    So he gets jobs cause he appears to be highly skilled, capable and creative to either the people with checkbooks, real creatives who project their vision into his concepts or both.

    Not pity. Inherent human flaws like Dunning–Kruger effect and wishful thinking.

    Just got home from it. It’s been a while since I had that transitional moment leaving the theater of readjusting to reality.

    Great film, loved it.

  • Uncle Dan

    Did anyone else have annoying people in the theater? There were a few guys right behind me talking audibly and clapping at inappropriate moments. I think they were looking for a dumb action movie instead of a smart one.

    I was somewhat gratified by the fact that even they shut up in the third act.

  • Uncle Dan

    Just came back from it. The 3D was only distracting that one time a steering wheel flies at the camera. That took me out of the film for a moment.

  • smylexx

    I wonder if Mike and Jay have seen either of the two The Raid movies. Those were definitely two action films that have the same visceral impact as this latest Mad Max outing.

  • Uncle Dan

    It would be nice for a movie of this quality to get the kind of recognition an Oscar would give it, but it wouldn’t surprise me if the Academy didn’t consider it the typical pretentious stuff.

    You know how you have to do a bit of volume mixing playing action movies in VLC player because dialogue scenes are too quiet while action scenes are too loud?

    I had to do that with Rich’s laughter. Pretty much as expected.

    I don’t think there are any limitations, just the awkwardness of using the player in a brower.

    I was briefly looking at the YouTube comments on this video and it’s kind of alarming how many people bought into the bizarre idea that the movie was taken over by feminists. There are films where that sort of message hits you far more over the head, so I guess the Internet debate just exacerbated everything.

    Which would be just like most other pointless Internet arguments.

    Calling this feminist because it has a strong female character in it is as dumb as calling it homoerotic because of all the bare-chested muscle dudes. Or, racist because most of those dudes are painted white.

    It is jihadist and atheistic, though. I’ll allow those.

  • Pa Kent Says Maybe

    Not true. Loved FURY ROAD, MR. TURNER, THE BABADOOK, THE TALE OF PRINCESS KAGUYA, INHERENT VICE (well, liked it lots, anyway), WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS.

    I gotta say I’m actually surprised you guys loved this. This whole movie felt like nothing but one long action sequence occasionally interrupted by some dialogue. And then halfway thru, they LITERALLY TURN AROUND AND GO BACK THE SAME FUCKING WAY TO HAVE THE SAME CHASE!!! and for a movie called “mad max” we certainly don’t know much about our title character. The girl character felt more like the protagonist then he did. Other then some trailer-catered lines in the first 5 minutes we don’t hear anything else about max or his motivations. I felt no emotional connection to him at all or any of the characters for that matter

  • harry

    well there’s your problem, you looked at youtube comments. That’s always a mistake

  • Jack

    I admit I haven’t seen any other mad max movies, so given what Jay said I’m willing to give this one another shot after seeing the originals. I could definitely see where he’s coming from

    Good episode RLM gang…I love love loved Fury Road. Aligns itself right next to the Mad Max films with ease, as if it was made back in between 1979 to 1987 except with this era’s cameras and rigs etc etc.

    Multiple viewings from me for this Mobius/Frazetta/George Miller metal meets opera action concert mash up!

  • TapeWormBike: Shitty Road

    Max has like 15 lines in the first movie, he’s just arcehtypal and cool. And, OK, I have not seen it yet, but Theron looks fucking boss, so if she is a prothagonist (which, if we empathize with her character te most she is), I don’t see a problem.

  • TapeWormBike: Shitty Road

    Sadly, yeah.

  • TapeWormBike: Shitty Road

    That is a good comparison

  • WarBoychun24

    Ohhhh…well. There is that…still, Jay said one of the movies strengths that won him over was how Miller told the story, and I back him with those thoughts. Most Millennials and Post M-Gen kids/tweens have been conditioned to having “Basil Exposition” when it comes to movies. Or need to have every little thing explained, or need post credit scenes and multiple set-ups like the Marvel Movie indoctrination. Fury Road features narrative/character development through production design details, visuals, and CHARACTER ACTION. The Sergio Leone westerns and Akira Kurosawa films are what Miller’s “Mad Max” series pulls inspiration from.

    I’ve seen many “there’s no character development”, “it’s just a chase movie” (duh – I got that from the first Comicon teaser and to me I was sold from that point alone). Or commenters who keep saying Fury Road was a good action movie but nothing else. An astute viewer would take the visual narrative/character dev info that Miller shot, while using imagination along with seeing the characters actions play out in the 2hrs and you get all the info you need.

    Max, Furiosa, Nux, The Warboys, The Five Wives, Immortan’s
    sickly brothers, even Immortan Joe all had clearly defined
    motivations/history and character arcs from start to finish. Trust me
    it’s there, and the reason why folks like me (and maybe Jay) may hail it as a masterpiece is because of this return to Sergio Leone type of storytelling. No hand holding exposition stuff from Miller in how he told this story. Which BTW is right in line with Mad Max, The Road Warrior and Thunderdome – all of which I’ve seen many many times.

    Anyway, you should check them out. Mad Max ’79 would be the “origin story” if you like, while RW – Thunderdome – Fury Road are all tales of Max and The Wasteland.

  • TapeWormBike: Shitty Road

    Three posts in under the second 2015 trailer and people are having a long argument about differences between Fallout and Borderlands. Youtube, if anything, is a good way to see what idiots think.

  • Uncle Dan

    Yeah I think people aren’t used to storytelling which isn’t explicitly spelling out what’s happening. I don’t even blame them: big Hollywood movies haven’t been doing that for a long, long time.

    Like when film people point out that actions suggest character instead of dialogue, I bet most general audience kind of people don’t even pay attention to that.

  • Uncle Dan

    It’s just apparent to me that this would really be a non-issue if one stupid Internet argument didn’t get out of hand. Half those people probably wouldn’t have a problem with the movie, because it really doesn’t have much to do with actual feminism or anything like that, if not for that explosion of stupid which made a bunch of people connect the two together.

    And man, if you have such a problem with feminism that you’re going to write off a movie that’s otherwise just badass… you’re pretty dumb.

    How’s it feel to be the most wrong about anything ever old man? The M’s and Post M’s, whatever that is, clearly approved of this movie, beyond just “look, me like action. Action is good. Cars go boom!” As demonstrated by it’s huge box office, off the charts metacritic reviews, yes the user reviews are actually higher then the critic reviews at this point, and it’s trending on things an old guy like yourself might not be aware of.

  • Joe Syxpac

    Took me ten minutes to figure out that they weren’t being sarcastic.

  • DudeWith GreatAdvice

    Point one: That is because of sites like the 4chinz, and reddit.
    Point two: Young males respond to anything “feminist” as a knee jerk response to new wave feminism, or people called social justice warriors. (sjws), and their homebase on both reddit (r/srs) and tumblr.
    Point three: None of these two groups of exist outside of the internet, or college campuses, so if you are a real life person you probably will never meet actual mra’s (male rights activists, stemming off 4chan) or sjw’s.
    Point four: I know too much about this…….

    Top Ten Reasons to Skip TOMORROWLAND
    1. Cranky George Clooney is even more annoying than Smarmy George Clooney.
    2. Polanski Clooney, leering at young girls, is most annoying of all.
    3. Damon Lindelof.
    4. Space Mountain is just a roller-coaster in the dark.
    5. Brad Bird IS an Ayn-Randian. Debate OVER.
    6. “Children are the future.” Yeah? Duh. That’s what the future is. Besides, every generation, including my own, has disappointed the previous generation while scoffing at the next, and the future still doesn’t have flying cars.
    7. It’s post-dystopian, yet still the only thing they could come up with was ‘splosions.
    8. No Nick Fury.
    9. Disney’s got enough money.
    10. MAD MAX isn’t getting enough money.

  • sepiajack

    Yes Mrs. Sepiajack and I got into a pretty lengthy discussion on the drive home from the theater about Furiosa, and her ‘remember me line’ and how the movie left that to interpretation but I think certainly it is fair for one to infer that she may have previously been one of Joe’s slave women before she was ‘damaged’. The movie invites the audience to fill in a lot of blanks and I think that’s a good thing.

    Brad Bird has done no wrong up until this point though so I feel he’s earned my trust to go into one of his movies.

  • I have just returned from watching Mad Max: Fury Road and I concur with the majority verdict that it’s an awesome film – one that should henceforth form part of the secondary school curriculum. Nobody should be allowed to graduate until they have seen this movie.

    Over and above the sheer inventiveness – the volume of good ideas thrown in front of a camera in rapid succession, I admired the film’s unflinching bleakness – where even a stillborn child with no visible tumors or deformities is a cause for celebration.

    One thing that does concern me about George Miller’s vision of the future is how Ultron would cope if he was removed from the Marvel universe and deposited into the irradiated post-apocalyptic Australian badlands.

    The correct answer is that within 10 mintues he’d be shackled to the engine grill of a cut and shut war rig fashioned from the body of Optimus Prime and a couple of the other Autobots welded together in human centipede configuration.

    I was just commenting that most of your generation of peers seeing Mad Max: Fury Road that didn’t even try to watch the first three films (or have never seen any Leone or Kurosawa “Man With No Name” movies) for tone/context, would be the same ones to complain about “too simple of a story” and supposed “weak” character development from Miller’s latest entry on the Myth of Max. And I’ve seen this all over the web. I work with Millennials and Post M-Gen folks, have a younger Millennial Gen sister etc …so I have good context of what I’m saying.

    BTW I work at a production studio, have always been an avid movie follower (artistic & business side) and my writer, actor, producer friends all do too.

    Max is more of a catalyst; something that makes the plot go. It’s more about the things that are happening around him.

    In regards to going back the way they came, it makes sense. They sought to leave their oppressed lives behind, and there was a promise of a better life elsewhere. When that didn’t happen, their instincts were to keep going father away. Max, being the catalyst, stops them and convinces them to do what was once unthinkable; to take the citadel, now that it’s undefended. They found dove in a soapless place.

  • Uncle Dan

    I actually really liked that all the exposition lines in the trailers were given to us in the first 5 minutes.

    There was no reason for this to be a ‘Mad Max’ movie, he was a background character. Horrible casting makes it hard to argue for more screen time (Tom Hardy looks like a plump Thomas Jane who’s constantly smelling farts). But seriously, why make a Mad Max movie and have him act as Charlize Theron’s sous chef the entire film?

    They are liberating the castle, if you think returning to a place to resolve the story is the same as going backwards in the story you are completely missing the point. The chase doesn’t get them anywhere, they find that out in the second act! If you want to shit on a simple solid script at least do some screenwriting 101.

    This movie is meant to be long action sequences with simple plot and character development in between, there is no rule that says an action movie (of all things) can’t do that, so I fail to see your point on this.

    If you felt no emotional connection to Furiosa or some of the brides you might be autistic or dead inside.

    Sorry Tapey, but you’ll just have to bend over… I just got back from seeing Tom Hardy and the Vaginaladies and it was (gonna be) great!

My blood type is also O so I could be an universal donor, but even nowadays I can’t donate blood because I’m considered a filthy homo.

  • Uncle Dan

    It was in one of them, something like “My name is Max, and my world is fire.”

    It’s not a big deal though, because we already know. ^^

  • Panzerknecker

    I came out of the movie with a friend of mine, without having read any 4chan or reddit, talking about how we liked that how most of the women in the movie were strong and also flawed characters without any emphasize being place on their womanhood having anything to do with that.

    And how that was a nice take on the divide of the sexes in a world where women (and men) are used up as cattle and where the weak are preyed upon.

    A lot of other movie makers would have hit you around the head with the battle of the sexes and all men being evil, this movie shows a female granny bandit gang who kick ass and prey upon men, without making any other comments about that. Loved it.

    Also shows some women being physically weaker than men and reacting to that in character, without being demeaning or degrading, they’re just fucking dealin with it, with the help of each other, Max and even Nux.
    Seeing some of the brides, the grannies and especially Furiosa rise above that through skill, blood and determination is great stuff.

    Then I read the internets opinion. Oh boy. Bunch of braindead knee jerk, meme spouting retard mouthbreathers who think this movie is teh 4th wave anti men feminist movie. Complete idiots.

  • Uncle Dan

    I read one comment where someone claimed that all the men in the movie are evil and oppressive and all the women are good. It’s a gross oversimplification… not least that, you know, Max acts selfishly but not oppressively. Furiosa is no hero either, because she’s acting out of revenge. None of it was really about female liberation, because the wives aren’t motivated so much by female liberation as, well, any kind of liberation. And even then, they have their doubts and don’t all feel the same way.

    Categorising them into evil men and good women, instead of just a wide variety of interesting characters, just seems like people who had this opinion already had it going in to see the movie.

    You’ll have a hard time defending the plot because it was crazy stupid. A ‘force’ of a mostly-dead one-armed girl, a useless guy, and four hot wives are going to ‘liberate the castle’ from the bad guy’s entire army?

    That was probably the weakest area of the film: motivation. AboutABoy spent his whole life being raised to die for glory and flips in two seconds because HotRedHead touched him. Okay, we’ll accept that for the story. But turning around and heading back to the stronghold and everyone just surrenders? Please.

    I’m surprised that nobody has commented on the real problem with this movie: that inefficient water distribution system. Even after the ‘good guys’ took over the castle they kept just dumping the water onto the ground. Guys, aqueduct!

  • Uncle Dan

    Remember the first look trailer? It’s the first thing that happens there. 😛 So if you were going by trailer expectations you really have nothing to be surprised about. They let you know early on that Max doesn’t have a good start to the film, so you really shouldn’t be whining about expectations.

  • Uncle Dan

    This is a fair point, but by that point it’s more about what it symbolises. It’s kind of like how Ghostbusters ends with crossing the streams, which isn’t the best, but the movie has won you over by then so it’s acceptable, at least to me.

    Obviously the movie didn’t win you over, so I can understand why you’d be more critical of the ending.

    You are way to literal minded to enjoy this movie.
    If you think you are being clever or this movie is being stupid, you’re wrong, it’s just you trying to come to grips with an action movie that has chosen to be over the top and stylistic.

    The motivation is this movie is survival, just that. The kid doesn’t flip because of the girl, he has no where to go because he thinks he can’t go to Valhalla anymore after Imortan watches him fail, she comforts him, he decides to live, again: survival.

    The remnants of the warboys are little kids, a midget and two guys with guns, they surrender because their leader is dead and hand over control to the woman who they think killed their leader, his family and their entire army(yes, they’re all stuck in the canyon in case you forgot).

    This fits quite nicely with their tribal and warlike behaviour, if you kill the all powerful leader, you probably become their new leader.

    “If you think you are being clever or this movie is being stupid, you’re wrong, it’s just you trying to come to grips with an action movie that has chosen to be over the top and stylistic.”

    So I’m wrong to think I’m noticing stupidity in the movie because they chose to make a stupid movie?

    Okay.

    This is why movie reviewing is such a hilariously polarized field: if you want to like something you’ll be way more forgiving about its ‘plot holes’ and ‘inconsistencies’ than you will be with something you don’t like.

    I mean I realize you have to be snide and asshole-ish because whatever, but give me a break guy. It’s a fun dumb movie. But it’s a dumb movie.

    I actually don’t watch trailers. They give away too many plot details. The best movie experiences I have nowadays are from getting the basic idea of the plot and going in blind. Not literally of course. I would walk into stuff.

  • atheistconservative

    I think the best analogy for Mad Max in this movie is Freddy Krueger in that “Freddy’s Nightmares” show. He was a brand icon that they stuck in occasionally to wave at you and give a thumb’s up while stuff entirely unrelated happened.

    stop being so butthurt.

  • Ogrot

    You’re absolutely, right. If anything all of the great action movies were known for their meticulous plotting and realistic stakes and odds. Just look at all the perfectly believable plots and outcomes:

    Terminator: A fucking merciless killing machine that can bulldoze a house with his bare hands is sent into the past to murder a waitress, and her sole protector is a Sandy haired guerrilla soldier from the future with no fucking equipment. Winner? The waitress after lover boy guerilla dies.

    Terminator 2: A fucking merciless killing machine that is impervious to all weapons and can shapeshift into anything but for budget and plot reasons prefers to assume the form of Robert Patrick wearing a motorcycle helmet for most of the film is sent into the past to murder a thirteen year old boy. The boy is protected by an obsolete murder machine from the previous film and a self trained paramilitary waitress. Their combined efforts destroys an entire corporate headquarters that would become Skynet and what seems like the entire LAPD police force and SWAT Teams and the fucking merciless killing machine that is impervious to all weapons and could shapeshift into almost everything. Makes you wonder why he wouldn’t just get ahead of this gang of misfits and assume the form of a wall and just stab John Connor in the dick when he walked by but whatev’s the misfits win again.

    Die Hard: John McClane without the aid of footwear defeats an entire terror cell with nothing but his wits, his police training, and his amazing accuracy with automatic weapons.

    Every Steven Segal movie: Steven Segal as an ex-something defeats an army of heavily armed thugs with nothing but his fucking bare hands to save the environment/city/naval ship and a girl that he slept/will sleep with or is related to.

    Every Batman Movie: An overindulged rich kid who can’t get over his parents murder copes by beating up economically disadvantaged thugs while wearing an armored bat suit and wielding various self made gadgets with parts he purchased from his bottomless inheritance and driving or flying overpowered death machines that were also purchased with his bottomless inheritance. A combination of a love interest and a supervillain will attempt to woo him into retirement. The supervillain with an inexplicably large army of goons will destroy Gotham with a superweapon or bombs and Batman will have to beat the shit out of easily 100 or so people before finally getting his boss battle where he either overpowers or outwits the supervillain and saves Gotham.

    Rambo First Blood Part Two and Beyond: Rambo murders everybody with guns cause revenge and then murders more because fucking Rambo, dude.
    http://i1.wp.com/bitcast-a-sm.bitgravity.com/slashfilm/wp/wp-content/images/rambo-death-chart.jpg

    Red Dawn: A group of teenage boys with no military training, other than football, defeats an elite unit of Soviet Paratroopers occupying their town.

    Star Wars: A teenager, two bumbling droids, a retired jedi, and two disinterested smugglers infiltrate a battlestation the size of a planet with probably hundreds of thousands of soldiers free a captive princess and escape after slaying a whole bunch of stormtroopers. A handful of tiny fighters then defeat the death star because Han Solo decides to be more than just an asshole in it for the Benjamins and Luke decides to just leave it up to the force to decide whether his proton torpedo hits the Deathstar’s weakpoint or not. If Grand Moff Tarkin just decided to blast that planet that was between him and the rebel base like any morally bankrupt Militarist with a superweapon would probably do, the movie probably would’ve ended differently.

    But you see therein lies the whole thing. Action movies aren’t about realistic stakes or plotting. Nor are most about character development. They are about experiencing vicarious power fantasies. To quote Plinkett the allure of Mad Max, T-101, Rambo, or Indiana Jones is not their characters, it’s being them. With the exception of the Original Mad Max which in light of the movies to follow serves as simply an origin story vehicle, Mad Max just as Indiana Jones is, is roughly the same character in the end as when he began. And that is the character he is by the end of the original Mad Max, a griseled damaged badass who is plagued by the demons of everything he’s lost, and in his heart always will do the right thing while dragging his feet the entire time. It is simple and their ain’t much more to him than that. The allure of the Mad Max films wasn’t his character arcs or depth nor his verbose witticisms (Mad Max was generally a man of few words in all his films) it was him as a vehicle to have adventures in the Mad Max world. Where he ends up in conflicts that he has no real stake in, other than he has been inconvenienced by them. This film was really no different in that regard.

    Additionally Action films by their nature are historically plotted with unbalanced stakes because of the fact that they are vicarious power fantasies. While they have subtle flavors for all seasons, John McLane in various nuances is a different power fantasy from say T-101, the result is essentially the same. A principled hero, who is an underdog, stands up to incredible odds that are stacked against him, and overcomes them through his sheer will, determination, heart, principles, faith, etc. Seems to me your only problem isn’t so much the plotting as the chief vessel for this power fantasy is a her instead of a him. And that is what makes it unbelievable to well… you. Or maybe you are just a killjoy who hates the entire genre for it’s apish unrealistic plots and instead only enjoy sensible foreign dramas where people explore the banalities of modern existence while you drink your wine and scratch the cheese off of your fashionably bearded chin. Which begs the question why you would even watch this film in the first place.

    Ignores the nuances between their many claims and arguments for both movies and decides to make a simplistic one to prove some sort of point by claiming they’re hypocrites.

  • Sulfur12

    no, not women you idiot. Feminists. They are not women, they lay eggs in caves.

  • Sulfur12

    what nuances? in this case there was no nuances. “Oh its jsut to see how sex slaves bal bla bla”. Really? Then why ask author of vagina monologues? Why not other experts, journalists, psychologists? Why increase competence of female character on expense of male character? This clearly shows the context and goal of the director. In Mad Max movie Max is side character, to whom some chick barks orders. This is ridicolous in itself, and such 80’s action guys like RLM should immediately detect fake.

  • Sulfur12

    Actually I don’t have to because I own brothel with sex slaves in it (and your MOOOM is there too!). thats why I dislike Mad Max, because it shows too much about my daily work.

  • Fred Frink

    you are a joke. Imperator was capable warrior, so is max. max has orders barked at him in prev films. fuck off

  • Sulfur12

    dude, just think about it for a sec. Why vagina monologues? Because those people are fucked up. Look how much flak Game of Thrones received from feminists, despite author self-declaring as a feminist. Director of Mad Max new, that if he wants to avoid bad publicity that those wierdos bring, he needs some guesture of approval from one of their celebrites. Because the problem with modern day feminism is that it is extreme to the fuck, and it lacks any coherence, there is no one inside this movement who can say “ok, now you shut up becuase thats nonsense’. So guy, in defense of his action flick, decided to inform everyone that author of vagina monologues helped him. Thats what is happening here. We cannot have just a fucking action flick, we have to ask some fucktards for permission to make one.

  • Nouseforaname

    At some percentage, we owe Mad Max to RLM for their tireless struggle all these years to separate the wheat from the chaff and to point out what’s good in movies and what’s not. Hope that people out there get what a good movie is and what we need more of.
    Thanks RLM.

    It’s called fiction for a reason.

  • atheistconservative

    Considering the fact that you have no idea what the word ‘misogyny’ means, I’m not surprised.

  • atheistconservative

    I’m hesitant to reply to you because of the old “don’t stick your dick in crazy” rule, but …

    What propaganda are you claiming is being pushed here? I mean, I’m irritated with the social need to make women into men and men into women, but this is probably the most innocuous movie in that respect. No women were portrayed as being ‘as strong as men’ (the only fight between a man and woman that didn’t result in the woman getting instantly wrecked was the Theron/Hardy fight, and Theron is a badass anyway, but she still had to use all kinds of objects and the help of four VS models on the chain just to hold her own).

    I share the objection that this wasn’t really a Mad Max film and wish George Miller and co. had either made a Mad Max film (Max couldn’t have rescued the women?) or a Mad Maxine film. They turned The Hitcher and The Thing into female-lead movies and yes both of those films sucked ass but at least they had the courage of their convictions. This felt like trying to have your cake and eat it too, but again, it’s innocuous. Plus it was pretty enjoyable.

    I just despise a world where I make a slight complaint against a movie and get called a misogynist because the world is full of people like you and that Tarkovsky twat. Not all disagreements have to go to rage mode, and even if you disagree with someone’s philosophy or ideology they can still make a good movie. Hell, that’s why people still study Birth of a Nation.

    Finally saw it. It’s one of the few movies I’ve seen before watching the Half in the Bag review. As someone new to the Mad Max series (I watched them for the first time recently to build up for this new one) it was everything I could’ve wanted and more.

    So glad you guys gave it a great review. It’s the first movie in a while where not only was I sucked into its world, but I also just thought at the end, fucking hell that was fun.

    I want more Mad Max Adventures. George Miller, you have the chance to make a whole series of badass movies with practical effects and in a post-apocalyptic Australia. Please don’t fuck it up.

    Yes, but want to point out that some of these feminists swimming around in the web and do they unholy work by put alot of salt on our sugar sweet hobbies. Even able to brainwash some of us.
    There is a good example on nexusmods. A man, a true hero was going for creating the perfect flawless female body we could never even dream about. Based on the Golden rule! But feminist girlfriend screwed his mind. Now he’s done. Broken. Last work was a ugly “realistic” looking woman. Well if a man with breast is a “realistic looking woman” mission acomplished.

    Rest in Peace brother.

    I have the feeling religion could also play a role in these feminists motivations…
    And that it maybe is the key to brainwash somebody to this degree.

  • bruce wayne

    the funniest thing about your comment is that you think you’re being sarcastic, but actually you’re one of the very few on the Internet who got the definition of feminism right. Even if it was probably by accident.

  • Sulfur12

    so what? Star Wars is fiction. Why RLM objected to Yoda having lightsaber on basis of realism then? Avatar was fiction, why they objected to simplicity of its propaganda message? Why they laughed at “department of white guilt”, but they are unable to laugh here? Why then they were spot on with their cirticism, and here-not? its fucking absent. I’m not demanding going full MRA here, I’m just asking why the hell usually observant, whitty and sarcastic guys good at “behind the scenes” analysis suddenly went full retard with this one. I’m not saying that woman cannot beat a guy. I’m saying that this is shown in absurd way. Its laughable. Charlize Theron, this skinny weakling is beating the crap out of Max. Have you ever seen women able to beat the shit out of a man? If not I advise you to check womens MMA. And even they cannot compete with guys from men MMA, but at least outside competiton they have chance to defeat 99% of guys out there.
    I just want to have the smae, consistent standart of criticism from RLM. Otherwise I cannot take their recomendations and anlysis seriously. What, just because MMX4 is done like 80’s action flick that means that it recieves pass on all this PC bullshit?

  • Panzerknecker

    I completely believe that.

  • Sulfur12

    “I share the objection that this wasn’t really a Mad Max film”

    You just answered to yourself.

    Just conenct the dots. Why Miller asked author of vagina monologues? what, because she is fucking expert? On what? are you kidding me? he could ask psychologists, journalists and many other people about this. No. He choose HER, because he decided to make a movie with female lead, a movie that is 80’s style over the top action flick. Wonderfull, nothing agianst that. But he KNOWS that this will create tremondous ammount of bad publicity from tumblr feminists and other crappy SJW’s, because for them everything is misogynist if its not created by them. Unfortunatelly, they gained significant influnce in last years. So what he did was ask somebody from those wackos to come to him, show on movie stage, make some pictures with her or whatever and make a news out of that, so that he will receive free pass. And just to make sure, that he is doing eveyrthing allright, he agreed to changes here and there.

    And I require RLM to fucking spot that and mention that “yes, wonderful movie, but whts that publicity crap with vagina monologues?”. Because see, this changes the context of this movie. And then you start to look at things and ask questions “Ok, here cleary it is pro-feminist crap…and here Miller winks to us that not at all”.
    PS. I have no idea who is Tarkovsky. And I’m not even going to google that. I’m basing my criticism only on what was in this episode of HITB

  • Panzerknecker

    Movie reviewing is almost totally objective, you’re absolutely right.
    I don’t think you’re being objective by calling this just a stupid movie and I was adressing some of your “plotholes” that you think are mistakes and oversights, which I think aren’t, because they fit snugly into the plot and flow of the movie.

    This is not a realistic movie. The director didn’t want it to be, that doesn’t make this a stupid movie. The points you were making are arguing against decades of simple and good screenwriting in the action genre, the plotholes you mentioned aren’t convincing and can be easily explained.

    If you think this is a stupid movie, fine, this all is subjective after all, but you aren’t really being convincing by going after “plotholes” and “inconsistencies” that aren’t there, maybe you should pay better attention.

  • Panzerknecker

    Agree!

  • Mr_Wint

    I understand where you’re coming from; the apparent inconsistency or lienient analysis by Mike and Jay. Although, I think what I meant was that in fiction, reality varies compared to our own standards. If a movie does a good job at presenting something not plausable compared to our world but believably suspends disbelief in the created world, I think that’s the mark of good fiction. And also, who cares about the PC themes; it’s Hollywood, you have to throw that shit in otherwise you might not get and approved rating or the distribution you want. This movie has problems, just not as many as the other tripe put out by the Hollywood money grubbers.

  • Sulfur12

    I’m not willing to give pass, because “its hollywood”. they still have monopoly on movies, so thats something you have just to deal with yes; but it does not mean you should ignore it. And I would not make a big fuss out of this, if not for the fact that Miller purposefully armored his ass here with author of vagina monologues coming to assit him on the movie. He has done it cynically so that he will be able to pass under the radar of those femnist extremists, who recieved in recent years for some reason quite an influence and grip over various media. And ebcuase fo that you shopudl analyse movie formt hat eprspective in that context-what was change din order to cater to extrmeists views? therefore its not “just a fiction”, where a guy punches other guy and he flies 6 meters, so its ok if a woman does something similar because both acts of violence are equally ridicolous.

  • Earth

    I doubt they’ll make four. It’s like how they announced Avatar 2, 3, 4 etc and how they seem to want to make Star Wars movies now indefinitely.

    I just want to see more of the world and whatever fucked up weird shit has been banging around George Miller’s head for the past 30 years.

  • Earth

    Personally I’d rather see more new stuff (like just whatever Max happens to run into), but I wouldn’t be surprised if Miller’s looking at all the sets, vehicles and costumes and is just thinking, whatever, let’s stay here for a little longer. Which is fine by me.

    I wanna see more of that Bullet Farmer guy with the bullet hat.

  • Earth

    I wanna see Max run into some Aboriginal and go on a spirit walk or whatever the fuck it is Australian Aboriginals do. The Walkabout or something. Considering how Max seems to be so fucked up in the head it would make sense that he try to get some help with curing his inner demons.

    That was one of the biggest disappointments I had with Mad Max 3. When Max is left in the desert to die and someone starts approaching him, I was like, aw sweet it’s an Aboriginal who’s gonna give him some weird-ass hallucinogenic drugs so that Max can meet his spirit guide or something. But instead it was Peter Pan and the lost boys looking for Never Neverland (‘ fuck’s sake)

  • brutal_sushi

    Anyone else really like the soundtrack to this movie?

  • Oh, you misunderstand. You must understand, I was implying that all your points up until now were worse than farts. Ha, what a comical misunderstanding!

  • Panzerknecker

    Yeah, Junkie XL is great in this one.

  • Also I love the fact that, yeah, this crazy guy Immortan Joe treats his women like cattle, but then he also treats his men like soldiers. Not only disposable, but actually encouraged to give away their lives in service of him. Anyone who isn’t Joe is treated less than human. What a patriarchy!

  • Skewed_View

    It would never happen since there are no more Aboriginals alive at this point. As we all know, Aboriginals are highly susceptible to fallout radiation, their bodies just soak that shit up like a sponge.
    It’s science.

  • Sulfur12

    Oh dear. This is really embarassing. It really sounded as if you were into that stuff…Damn… I’m really sorry man, I truly am.

    Now I feel even more akward. Lets finish this conversation.

    I would not be closed to the idea of mutated Aborigines 😉

    If anything I still want Max to meet his spirit guide like when Homer met the Johnny Cash Coyote.

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    Which argument of yours that you originally stated are you trying to strengthen? I’m saying your conclusion that RLM are hypocrites is flawed because your claims are cherry-picked examples where you can formulate an incongruence between their views.

    Your reply mostly seems to be a red herring, being some tangential rant mostly unrelated to what you originally said. RLM has more complex views of films than you’re willing to give them and perhaps you’re doing this solely for your argument. Heck, they often don’t even agree with each other about aspects of films. Here you can see Jay enjoyed this movie markedly more than Mike did.

    It’s difficult to create the arguments you’re using based upon subjective opinions of different films, especially when relating Plinkett, an extension of mostly Mike’s opinions who is a fictionalized, hyperbolic, senile psychopath, to the RLM gang, who are rather close caricatures to the actual Mike and Jay [and sometimes Rich].

    Imagine a simpler argument and you might see why I think your argument is shit:

    1) RLM didn’t like the red in Painting 1.
    2) RLM liked the red in Painting 2.
    3) RLM didn’t like the blue in Painting 3 but liked it in Painting 2.

    Strike one

    See how dumb this sounds? The argument completely ignores the context of the colours or even the preferences of the viewers themselves.

    Black Spring Break has one of the best soundtracks of all time.

  • Floyd Lawton

    I actually really liked the scene where Max and Furiosa shake hands, sealing their growing mutual bond of respect. It’s not preachy because there is nothing said and there isn’t anything needed to be said. That one scene alone completely dismantles the whole anti-men (or pro-woman) angle a lot of people claim the film supposedly has. If anything the message of “survival means a lot more if your actions to achieve it are tempered by compassion” transcends beyond gender. And so does the message of LOOKING FUCKING AWESOME BY DOING SO WHILE A BLIND DUDE PLAYS A GODDAMN FLAMETHROWERGUITAR IN THE BACKGROUND!

  • Sulfur12

    I stoppd reading you at “they are hypocrites”. I never said that, you are strawmaning the hell out of this subject.

    Let me use analogy. Lets imagine its Avatar. And They are ripping movie to shreds, and then they move to the fact that “some accuse” this movie of being “white guilt trip” and being simplistic towards military and shit The response? “Oh, get out you stupid fucks, its ok”.

    And that is the reason why all your efforts to defend them fall flat.

    And the context is even worse. If Miller purposefully choose to consult author of vagina monologues, whereas he could reach any number of ACTUALL experts on that and many other matters, it means he wanted either to say something or shield himself from something.

    HITB usually spots this type of thing. Not this time. I expect some consistency from my hack frauds. And what is worse they dismiss this out of hand.

    as an australian i saw Mad Max:1 way before any of the others.
    its set in a city {Melbourne} has a beach and is filmed in prime farmland.
    Mad Max:2 {called the road warrior by sepos and philistines} was filmed in the desert. and as thats the one that got the international release thats what people think Mad Max is.
    i personally would love to see Max return to the ruins of Melbourne to get a supercharger that was in the MFP garage? or go to the Australian Alps and fight to save the survivors running the Snowy River Hydro Power System like “High Plains Drifter.” with cars and crazy people in leather.

    This is a lost cause. Plinkett is a character. Mike and Jay play caricatures of themselves. They’re not the same people, even though Plinkett [the one in the reviews] is mostly Mike’s creation.

    If you can’t understand the differences between how someone might view one movie [Avatar] and how two other people might view another [Mad Max] based on a plethora of different factors, I don’t see any way to really converse with you. I think it’s pretty clear for them that Mad Max overcame whatever problems Plinkett felt Avatar had, quite possibly because Mad Max was balls-to-the-wall action and mayhem, which they found incredibly fun, or also possibly because they don’t have the same problems with the film as you seem to do.

    I can’t tell you how agonizing it was to wait to see this movie. I have avoided trailers and tried to stay away from the crazy MRA controversy and I even started to watch this episode of HITB before shutting it off less than two minutes in.

    First World Problems but it was really a surprisingly challenging thing to remain spoiler-free two weeks after the movie came out in theaters.

    I’ll tell you, it was all worth it. I think this movie broke me. I have trouble thinking of anything I would have wanted that it didn’t give me. It elevated immersive storytelling to a level I thought only video games like Portal or Papers Please could manage. A level of engagement that I thought the fourth wall or cinema permanently prevented.

    It so fully shattered my expectations that the only movie experience I can compare it to was leaving the theater after seeing Terminator 2 for the first time. A feeling like everything was different now.

    I hate American politics. It’s so narrow minded and childish. “Oh no, the feminazis are ruining out action movies!” Seriously, stfu. How about it being realistic that, in a post apocalyptic world, militant, violent men would try and dominate everyone around them. That includes women. Does anyone deny that there are real life sex trades where the women are basically slaves? It’s not about “men are bad, women are good” it’s about “sexual slavery and constant warfare are inhumane and people will push back when pushed to the edge.” Plus, you know, it’s just a kick ass action movie.

I think we need a new word other than “remake” and “reboot”… this felt like a “revisit”, because the main character was not Mad Max, it was more like the main characters was the world of Mad Max, and it felt like going back and visiting that place after a few decades and after taking a few dozen hits of acid. It was constant fun, the action was in service of the plot, and what really impressed me was the little details and world building. Also, guitar dude stole the goddamn show. Go see it.

    Sadly it’s an easy trap to fall into, even for our beloved Rich Evans – in a recent Pre Rec stream his fiancee was describing some dystopian product where a society of men is oppressing a group of women, and Rich’s sarcastic response was something like “right, because men are all evil and would totally do that”.

    If you think about it, Max is the only one who really shows true unconditional love when he’s trying to save Furiosa and giving her his blood, the ultimate thing you can do to try and save someone, so all of this sexism BS is just made to get people at each others throats.

  • Toffoli_73

    There’s a weirdness to the whole thing that’s so refreshing in this era of cookie cutter block busters.

  • Toffoli_73

    That scene was great. I half expected them to kiss all covered in dirt and blood. I’m glad they didn’t though. The subtle attraction was there. I think the whole movie was about these people trying to find something, anything decent and good in that hell scape of a world. Max may be crazy, but in the end he’s also a hero.

    A Damn good hero

  • Jegsimmons

    you know the whole “MRAs angry of feminist” is a fabricated story, right?

  • Toffoli_73

    I had a really fat guy next to me who made horrible, labored breathing
    noises the whole time. You know those people who are so big they can’t
    even breath properly? One of those. I also had a few people behind me
    acting like it was their living room, making comments, etc. Would expect
    nothing less from our local movie goers.

  • Sulfur12

    No, nope. Facts are as follows: Miller hired a person that is feminists celebrity to aid on stage. Why her? Because your mom sucks cock.

  • Sulfur12

    Thats not the way to talk about your mother, young men! and yes, I do fuck her.

  • Sulfur12

    with that attitude you can excuse anyone from anything. Literally.

    fanboy rationalizing par excellance.

    the reason why HITB or Plinkett became so popular was because they did not used kids gloves and were analytical about all aspects of moviemaking. When you ignore one part of that equation that propelled you to health and beauty (juggle you way to it!) then you are screwing up.

    I’m making them a favour pointing this shit out.

    You’re not reviewing Ex Machina?

    I don’t know how you can say
    Transformers or Man of Steel are overstimulating but Fury Road isn’t?
    The action is better but it’s still all noise at the end of the day.

    You don’t watch PreRec to hear anything remotely smart though.So that’s on you.

    Your parents will inform you that you are adopted so the fact that you are a life fail is not their fault.

    I assume I’m talking to someone from RLM, not some random mod goon.

    What will happen? nothing. I’m one guy. but over time if you won’t be more careful at staying where youre roots are you may start to loose audience. This time people won’t notice, because it s a minor thing, a hiccup. But if you start being sloppy in your sarcasm and analytical approach, the things that propelled you to net fame, then you will just loose credibility.

    why the fuck author of vagina monologues. why. why not a real expert, why feminist celebrity. why. If that would be George Lucas or James Cameron you would be all over him, asking questions.

  • Jape

    Incredible action, great world-building details but I seem to be alone in thinking its not amazing, just good. The acting from Theron and Hardy struck me as flat and the dialogue was often Lucas-levels of bad. The actual story arc felt like it had been written in one draft without forethought (we need to get from X to Y on a epic journey, oh Y is X, let’s head back in a fraction of the time).

    Still, bungy guitar slave. If nothing else this film is heavy metal distilled.

  • Gregory Kirsch

    Don’t get me wrong, I liked it… but please stop announcing a plan mid-way through a movie like, “let’s go back there and win….” then the characters just proceed to do it. There should have been more of a twist. Also, when the big evil guy died, I actually thought he might still be alive, should have shown his face get ripped off more.

  • vashic

    jay can you make yourself look the way you did in 2012 just for one episode please. your carelessness of your appearance really adds to your character in the show. not trying to insult you.

  • Ogrot

    Roger Ebert can explain to you exactly why Fury Road succeeds where MoS and Transformers fail.

    “From the very beginning, Miller and his team do something that so many other filmmakers fail to do—they define the geography of their action. Rather than merely tossing the camera around in the vain hopes of creating tension, they constantly give the viewer overhead shots and clear physical dimensions of what’s happening and where we’re going. And then they blow it all up.”

    http://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/mad-max-fury-road-2015

    But I would add, unlike Transformers, Fury Road is actually about something other than car commercials, explosions, gun fetishes, and Megan Fox’s ass and tits. And unlike MoS has an emotional heart and lacks pretentious buildup to nothing.

    Action that fails to gain investment from the audience is what makes a movie an overstimulating noisefactory. Poor camera work and shot planning creates a similar result. If you have the combination of the two you achieve Transformers.

  • Joe

    I too really enjoyed this movie. You know a movie is good when one person’s job title in the end credits is literally just “Wheels and Skulls”.

  • jsmith0552

    Loved Fury Road, but where’s a bit of love for a good Sci Fi film that got lost in the shuffle like “Ex-Machina” while a review might do some good and get people to go out and see it in a theater while it’s still playing?

  • jsmith0552

    I’ll admit, I didn’t expect he was actually dead either. But I’ll also admit I have been raised on a pretty steady diet of over-the-top Hollywood bad guy demises that defied all logic for many decades. You get your face ripped off, you’re dead — cut and dried.

  • jsmith0552

    It would be nice, but I think they’re basically interested in the big budget stuff. They didn’t even review Iron Sky if I recall.

  • jsmith0552

    My question exactly about Ex-Machina. We seldom get many intelligent Sf films anymore, and Ex-Machina was just sort of left to fend on it’s own during the Ultron frenzy. It even had a better AI storyline and would have made a great companion piece when they did the Ultron eps.

    I expected sites that leaned heavily toward speculative films to have supported it more. This is why Hollywood has the advantage it has and guys with imagination and something original to say are struggling.

  • jsmith0552

    It boggled my mind when I started seeing articles describing Fury Road as a “radically pro-feminist” film. I was like “Damn people in this day and age certainly have a lot of hangups”

  • Regan

    Wouldn’t expect a review; just wanted to pass it along. Figured they’d love it. And I was so exited it was out I let EVERYONE know, lol….

    Maybe they could do a segment about the phenom of Kickstarter movies….

  • Just saw the movie yesterday. The character of Furiosa didn’t fit. She was abducted as a little girl by Immortan Joe and he raised her to become his most trusted warrior? There aren’t any other women warriors in his society, so how did that happen?

  • Ogrot

    Well we can only go off the visual information, cultural baggage of some of the terms used in Immortan’s society, to, well, speculate on that.

    1. Furiosa’s people were essentially Amazons of the Post Apocalypse. The ancient Amazons were renowned as great archers and Furiosa is the best shot in the film and the grannies aren’t so bad either. While kid Furiosa wasn’t badass enough to fight off her kidnappers it’s probably safe to assume that her fellow Amazon’s taught her proper marksmanship and some basic self defense as a matter of course for surviving in a post apocalypse wasteland. While probably not a hero at eight or so it is at least something to be built upon to make her tougher than your average post apocalypse woman.

    2. Furiosa has the same neck brand on the back of her neck as the rest of the breeders. Her final words to Immortan Joe, “Remember me!” before she tears off his face is delivered in a way that denotes a hatred spurred on by intimacy than a simple rivalry. My own personal theory “head canon” is Furiosa was relishing in irony as she punishes Immortan Joe by disfiguring him in a fashion similar to how he may have punished her for some kind of insubordination by taking her arm before the film takes place. Why Joe would keep a one armed breeder around and make them a warrior is another good question that again may not be completely impossible to explain. Joe may have found it to be a good ironic punishment for a breeder that decided to go toe to toe with him. You want to fight like the boys? Let’s see how you fare with one arm on a suicide mission. Her possible past as one of Immortan’s breeders also would explain why she is so committed to taking his other breeders with her.

    3. Now working with the theory that Furiosa is sent out with Warboys at the end of their half-lives to die but doesn’t, leads to another interesting wrinkle. You are probably saying, “Ogrot, if it was a punishment then why would he make her a commander knowing he can’t trust her?” Well he may not have a say. Remember that she is referred to in the film as an Imperator. And in the tradition of the Roman Republic to be an Imperator your fellow soldiers had to proclaim it, not some figurehead king on top of the mountain, being an Imperator was also the political stepping stone to be a great man in Rome, to be a Consul in the Republic Era and an Emperor in the empire days to follow. And given that Immortan Joe’s sons are a two foot human worm that reminds me of Jonas Venture Junior and a comically stupid big oaf buffoon, nor had they won similar admiration from the rest of the Warboys, he probably feared that the Warboys and the Groundlings would opt for Furiosa over either of them when he died. After all his power is based on fickle admiration, he is thought to be a living god, and he nurtures it through a manipulative system of neglect, false benevolence, and a dog eat dog rat race to ascend to the citadel. That scene where he gives his speech and delivers the water is essentially the macrocosm of how his power is derived. He is in essence a demagogue who relies on the worship of his followers to be powerful. The moment his mortality is evident is the moment that power is gone. It will not fall to his kids, rather it will go to someone else worthy of such respect, because that is how his society works. The politicians of the Roman Republic understood this all too well and used bread and circus in much the same way as Immortan does to win the affections of the people. Because he understands his power comes from them providing him with the manpower necessary to mold into a tool that provides or protects his resources. The groundlings hold the cards. And so when Furiosa returns with a dead god King on top of the god King’s monster truck our Roman Citadel with all the Groundlings screaming for her to be ascended there was only one option for who shall be its new Emperor.

    TL:DR

    Every frame is so dense!

  • Ogrot

    Well Immortan’s Face Mask is more than just for show. It pumps him oxygen. The oxygen is fed by a bellows system at the back of his neck. We hear and see it operating when he first puts the mask on and the bellows constantly pumps throughout the movie. Given Immortan’s health requires regular use of oxygen supplementation it is safe to say face ripping trauma plus a cut off from that oxygen supply = death.

  • Patrick Batman

    My only gripe in the movie was how that scene was shot. It wasn’t 100% lucid on what actually happened and I, too, expected a Scream style fake-out where he was still alive.

  • bwhitz

    No, it’s not. Modern women (especially feminists), are insane, spoiled-rotten, and the most entitled humans to ever walk the face of the earth.

  • You Are Black Right?

    I recognize this! It’s how I used to talk when I was a frustrated hyper-conservative 16 year old with no informative life experiences and zero emotional maturity! Give it a few years, you’ll get some sense knocked into you.

  • Mongo_the_GoofyBastard

    Maybe Mad Max will get to be the star of the sequel! He’s learned his lesson of “Men are all ugly, white, evil destroyers, Women are all “beautiful Scions of virtue and only want to see the world bloom”. He spent the first half of the movie in a gimp out fit and the second half being saved repeatedly by the oh, so much more capable and resourceful, Charlize Theron. He’s learned his lessons now about the evils of Patriarchy and how to be a good beta sidekick, maybe now he can help spread political correctness all across the wasteland. Perhaps somewhere there is an oil rig being manned, I mean, STAFFED by transexual persons of color whom he can assist (not save, just assist, he’s not the HERO after all) from the looming threat of heterosexual white males and their insatiable greed. Possibilities are endless. Until then remember, Men Bad, Women Good.

  • MichaelKz

    This movie basically met some very lowered standards of action movies and women in action movies.
    People are like, “It’s got real vehicles and stunts and almost no CGI,” and “A female character isn’t talking about about a guy she likes or is falling in love with Max.” Well you know what, the same thing happened in the previous sequels. Plus Thunderdome has a crazed leader leaving her home to pursue valuable people that are escaping her custody.
    It’s like if the remake of Robocop were just like, and just as good as, the original. However, instead of people saying, “Hey, that was good,” they’d be saying, “Oh my fucking God that was anazeballs! Why don’t they make movies like this anymore!?”

  • Mr_Wint

  • You Are Black Right?

    😀 I can’t wait to see this script you’re writing! I’m certain it will be sarlaccs from start to finish!

  • Eric Topp

    I wasn’t expecting to get emotionally involved with this movie but I got a bit teary-eyed at the end. Great movie!

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    Except I’m half black, but let’s ignore that and focus on my skin colour. That’s what Martin Luthor King Jr. wanted, anyway. 😉

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    “Also keep earning 22% more than a woman for doing the same work.”

    That’s some bad math right there. If we assume that myth is true, which it’s not, then women earn 22% less than men [or 23%, or 25%, or whatever number they say], which means they earn $0.78 for every $1.00 a man earns. $1.00 is actually 28.2% more than $0.78 [1/0.78=1.282]. You can’t merely reverse the terms and have it still make sense.

    Women earn 22% less than men =/= men earn 22% more than women

    Also, if this myth were true, why would any corporation hire males if they could get away with paying females less to do the same work? They’d be making HUGE savings by hiring exclusively women.

  • You Are Black Right?

    Fair point on the math of course!

    As for the “myth” nonsense, on one side we have extensive research from the World Economic Forum, the US Congress Joint Economic Committee, American Association of University Women, US Department of Labor and the Government Accountability Office consistently demonstrating women make significantly less than their male counterparts in the same fields, even in fields that were traditionally dominated by women in the past, and even at a year from exiting college when controlling for factors known to affect earnings.

    On the other side we have Nash saying “it doesn’t sound right”. Some guy’s gut feeling versus extensive scientific research and study, hmmmm, who to trust?

  • Generalzod

    In Australia it was given an MA15+ rating, I still dont understand why the film was given an R rating in the United States….

    This is the most overrated movie in years. Seriously everyone: take your Meds and chill the fuck out. Movies have not been reinvented by this 2 hour car chase.

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    “On the other side we have Nash saying “it doesn’t sound right”.”

    I’m not the only person to call BS on this. Many, many people have in the past. It’s been thoroughly studied and refuted. If you’re not immune to persuasion, might I suggest reading this study:

    “A greater percentage of women than men tend to work part-time. Part-time work tends to
    pay less than full-time work.

    A greater percentage of women than men tend to leave the labor force for child birth, child
    care and elder care. Some of the wage gap is explained by the percentage of women who
    were not in the labor force during previous years, the age of women, and the number of
    children in the home.

    Women, especially working mothers, tend to value “family friendly” workplace policies
    more than men. Some of the wage gap is explained by industry and occupation, particularly,
    the percentage of women who work in the industry and occupation.”

    http://www.consad.com/content/reports/Gender%20Wage%20Gap%20Final%20Report.pdf

  • Torgo Wyzczski

    Don’t get the hype. The costumes are cool, the cars are cool, but other than that it’s just big, loud, excessive, and fast. No breakthroughs here.

  • You Are Black Right?

    The method of comparison used by CONSAD, the method known to show the lowest disparity, still shows an unaccountable difference in wages (4.8-7.1%). The method used by the Bureau of Labor Statistics compares full-time workers and finds a larger disparity.

    So regardless of method used we have an appreciable gap in wages between genders for the same occupations, and the CONSAD report decides that we can probably never know if this gap is due to discrimination.

    The US Department of Labor happily refutes that point though:

    http://blog.dol.gov/2012/06/07/myth-busting-the-pay-gap/

    And there is also the reality that there are systemic issues, for instance: “The US is one of only three countries — along with Liberia and Papua New Guinea — that doesn’t require employers to offer maternity (or paternity) leave. When American women have a baby, their jobs often aren’t waiting for them to return; in most other developed countries, they are. This is a big reason why only four high-income countries in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development have larger gender pay gaps than the US.”

    -as pointed out here:

  • Mr Bighead

    I completely agree with you but I think your comment would suit their Avengers 2 episode even better. After seeing Ex Machina, I read a review that compared the two films and their treatment of A.I. I was really hoping Mike and Jay would have gone the same way. Somehow I feel in earlier years of HITB they would have.

    p.s. I just saw Fury Road about 2 hours ago and I loved every minute of it.

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    “still shows an unaccountable difference in wages (4.8-7.1%)”

    Yep. This is why I said it’s a myth. This number is quite a bit different from the one you listed when you said “Also keep earning 22% more than a woman for doing the same work.” Eh, I don’t think a person would earn more than another in the same position at the same company doing the same work with the same experience and working the same hours unless one of them negotiated a higher pay or has had more raises.

    That 4.8-7.1% doesn’t mean it’s caused by sexism/discrimination but there aren’t variables they can figure out using their current data.

    I’m not even saying there isn’t discrimination in play, I’m saying we’ll need good, hard data and analysis to pinpoint where is it so that we aren’t exaggerating claims. Heck, you yourself said I’d earn 22% more than women [before I corrected the math] for the same work yet that number is bull for the same work.

    Fuck Mad Max where’s the Kung Fury review?

  • RowKseat12

    Can you review San Andreas PLEEEEEEEEASE! y’know you reviewed every Transformer film – with hilarious results – GO HAVE A CRACK AT IT!

  • AdeoAdversary

    Hilarious review my Red Letter friends, great stuff as always, keep it coming. I definitely agree that Mad Max made me feel some power of cinema type feelings as well, absolutely one of my favourite films from the last few years.

  • People were cheering. This movie had us all rooting and fearing for the heroes. It was great!

  • Jack

    fuck u. internet tough guy. I was just giving my first initial impression. I even admitted I didn’t see the other movies I had no frame of reference. Autistic? really? suck my fuckin dick. Easy to be so cruel to someone with a keyboard in between you and the other person.

  • Jack

    dude go fuck yourself. how dare you call me something so offensive when all I did was give my first initial impression of a movie. you would never say some shit like that to anyone’s face and I’d be willing to bet anything on that. God I hate the internet

    in real life i would have been much ruder. i was trying to be nice. if a comment like that upset you this much you probably should stay away from comments.

  • Darg Varg

    Going by your juvenile comment here born of being owned by liberal brainwashing, I’d say nothing has changed.

  • Darg Varg

    The opposite. Those who HAVE seen the original Mad Max movies are the ones who are complaining.

  • Darg Varg

    David Lynch “Let’s make up a disjointed bunch of scenes and make the ending even more disjointed. I have no idea what I just made, but if it makes a culture of uppity hipsters endlessly discuss the meaning of the movie or it’s ending, my trolling was successful.”

  • Darg Varg

    Yes Beyond Thunderdome was regurgitated dogs vomit compared to the first two movies. It was “How can we turn dark and gritty into LOLZ”

  • Darg Varg

    It sounds like extreme feminism has taken root in the depths of your penis, and your poor little libtard heart just has to lash out at everyone who sees the world different to you. Poor pathetic immature little child.

  • You Are Black Right?

    “Liberal brainwashing”, how adorable! I’m truly surprised you didn’t blame ol’ Satan!

  • You Are Black Right?

    Feminism being the belief that men and women deserve equal rights, it is difficult to reach an “extreme” of that belief, despite claims by grumpy penis-focused boys like yourself.

  • Andrey Tarkovsky Reference

    Then you give me the definition of misogyny. I defer to your omniscience.

    Finally got around to seeing this movie, and I went into it thinking the feminist/socialist overtones everyone was talking about were being exaggerated or even completely imagined.
    Nope. Not with lines like “I’m having a baby, he will be so ugly/But maybe it will be a girl?” and “He controls the water so he controls us.” Just replace “water” with “means of production” and this is basically a film adaptation of Das Kapital, updated to include third-wave feminist vitriol.
    And if Hollywood’s going to keep hammering away at this “badass female” trope, could they at least stop casting women who look like emaciated supermodels for the roles? At least Lucy Lawless looked like she could carry a sword, Charlize Theron looks like she needs help carrying her purse. They should’ve cast Woody Allen in the role of Max, at least then there would’ve been some symmetry.
    btw, The Road Warrior was an awesome movie, and it also had a badass female…the difference is she didn’t have more screen time than the fucking titular character! That’s what I really don’t understand about RLM’s review: they shit on The Hobbit because the title character wasn’t in the movie enough, but they don’t have a problem with Max being a supporting character in Mad Max?

    Did I miss a MRM meeting? Grow a sense of perspective, ya’ sad little boy. Women have been pissed-on throughout all of human history by scumbags who looked and sounded very much like intimidated little nappy-grabbing mutts like you. So you see a couple of films – no more than that, I challenge you now to name them, present your list – and you’re on here pissing and whining about feminism. Here’s a thought for you — fuck off and die. No joke. I truly mean it. Fuck…off…and…miserably…die. You’re being out-evolved so choke on it. Tough luck. Adios! Bye-bye from an actual 40+ adult male who doesn’t share in your bullshit. Go and fuck yourself. No loss to anyone else. Take it all back to your miserable trailer-park daddy…

  • Jason

    ^this, gentlemen and especially ladies, is the intellect that hollywood is catering to these days.
    you know, even though your comment is completely irrelevant, doesn’t address a single point I made, is (pathetically attempting to be) insulting, reads like a pre-programmed diatribe addressing god-knows-who (your father maybe?) and has every reason to be flagged as inappropriate…I’m not going to. mainly because you prove my point better than I ever could. hell, your mindless vitriol was even worse than the movie’s.
    people, if you’re thinking of watching Fury Road, just read butthead’s comment above; now imagine sitting through that for about 2 hours. that’s my review.

  • ultraterrestrial

    You were quite right, Jason. I wrote my prior (self-deleted)
    response while I was totally drunk–consequently it was inappropriate and unfortunately vitriolic. Likewise, as you’ve now also rightly commented, I have seen male figures in my own life beating women and acting like thugs. I can only
    apologise for reacting to your post in light of that–not least because I was similarly beaten by the men who were supposed to protect me when I was a child, way back when I obviously couldn’t hope to defend myself.

    However, the on-topic point I raised to you in my (mostly misguided) post remains unanswered—can you name any set of Hollywood films or any trend in Hollywood generally that supports your view of a ‘third wave [of] feminist vitriol’ or anything remotely approaching it? I rather see the opposite. I find women continually paraded as male masturbatory fodder in pop-videos and movies as a sort of commonly accepted currency. The endless exchange of ‘tits and ass’ seems to be still be in vogue, just as it was while I was a teenager in the 1980’s, at least as far as I can tell from buying cinema tickets over the last decade.

    Similarly, this idea of a smuggled-in version of ‘Das Kapital’
    (i.e., a socialist, left-wing bias) doesn’t seem to be a trend I can identify as a subtext in mainstream Hollywood. Instead the message has repeatedly been to ‘consume and be happy’, along with the attendant massages of ‘work brings dollars…which brings consequent spiritual contentment’. Can you find a list of mainstream films that speak otherwise? I will stand corrected and admit that I am entirely wrong if you can explicitly name them.

    I would suggest, not to bring this exchange into further conflict, that your reaction to Fury Road might resultantly be fuelled by a kind of right-wing, knee-jerk reactionary machismo that take umbrage when affronted by the sound of
    any dissenting (albeit marginal) voice—no matter how rare those voices are. The same could be said of your equally hostile reaction to this phantom of creeping left-wing bias. To be blunt, you sound quite a bit like Ann Coulter. Here on an
    RLM that shouldn’t go unchallenged. Which I now find it is not. I have just called you out for it, Jason. Do you have anything to say by way of an answer?

    My Very Best Wishes To You Regardless,

    Jon

    <-******** Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the
    best job I’ve had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a
    check for $6000 this – 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and
    immediately was bringing home at least $177 per hour.
