Seeing Mad Max again.

1:45 showing for 2D...the damn theater is packed. 100% full. Jesus. I've been seeing the seats fill up. So many people for Max. Good thing I came in early.

Just went to see it and loved every minute. More than made up for Thunderdome, which I liked but failed to live up to the Road Warrior's intensity. I became excited for this film as soon as I found out Hardy would be Max. Having Toecutter play the big bad was a great homage to the original film. I don't understand the controversy over the strong female characters. There was Virginia Hey in Road Warrior and Tina Turner in Thunderdome. Miller just took it a step further. Miller did well. I had a great time. I'm hoping for more.

Wow. George Miller looks way younger than Hugh Keays-Byrne, despite being a few years older.

Being a Royal Shakespearean actor takes its toll.

Hugh Keays-Byrne hasn't missed a step. Such an awesome actor. I hope that clip is included in the BD release.

Had the same issue at my screening, which was on the big Marcus Ultrascreen with a truly chest-rattling Dolby Atmos sound.

Any of the yelled/screamed dialogue (especially during the opening sequence) was difficult to understand, though it didn't diminish what was going on.
Despite that, I absolutely loved it. Just a non-stop adrenaline rush....

I saw this yesterday and I'm stunned it's got a 98% rating on RT. Yeah, it's got great visuals, but I didn't care at all about any characters or the story. They could have called Theron's character Mad Maxine and it would have made more sense. I've already forgotten Hardy was even in this. Probably won't re-visit this movie anytime soon. For me, it was 110 minutes of loud, incoherent noise.

His gyro pilot headgear was on the car that carried Max when he was strapped to the front, right above Max.

I'm giving it 5 stars, it's 1 or 1A with Inception as my favorite movie since Raiders of the Lost Ark.

I liked it a bit more than you did, but I'm pretty close to you in agreement. Mad Max: Fury Road is certainly a fun, well-made 2 hour action flick but hardly the game-changing, transcendent piece of jaw-droppery that seems to be bandied about with effusive hyperventilation.

Good for that BO. We all gush over the movie. But I was afraid it was going to be a movie (like Dredd) that nobody goes to see.

The villains were scary and intimidating. The good guys weren't always prepared and had to figure things out along the way - and that felt dangerous. Not a formula we see much anymore.

Mel Gibson for the villain in the next Mad Max!

I've never been a Gibson fan. Much like Cruise, he's been in films that got my attention. He himself has never motivated my interest in seeing a film.
