I look forward to the inevitable Syfy/Asylum mockbuster!
Haha, me too. I've not seen it personally, but I've heard that their mockbuster of I Am Legend ( I Am Omega ) is pretty good by asylum standards. They could probably even tie that in as it's a general post apocalyptic theme.

I bought I Am Omega because 1. I am a huge Mark Dacascos fan and 2. I did not know it was an Asylum film.  It's probably one of the worst films Mark has been in.  Truly.  If that is 'good by Asylum standards' then I shudder to think what the bad ones are like.

This is the movie I'm most excited to see this year. Fun Fact: It comes out on my brother's birthday.

I think it looks amazing.

Basically, I'm hoping it is the Raid: Redemption with cars. I don't want a story. I want insanely technical car chases and explosions for an hour and a half. In 3-D.

If that happens, "what a lovely day!"

Then, your brother's birthday is May 15. That is when it opens here in the U.S.

Not that many films I care to see this year, but that is one film I am looking forward to seeing, and May 15 is not that far away.

I liked it... but...

I think it was just a smidge away from being the best of all the Max movies, but blew it. The thing I liked about Mad Max was its vision of scavenger societies made up of roaming bands of warlords. The action sequences were always great, but they were just the frosting.

This one is too much frosting, not enough cake. It needed to slow down and explore the mythology and sociology of the Citadel more. We got tantalizing hints of the way this society was organized. but too much was left to the imagination in favor of another chase scene. I actually felt a tiny bit cheated.

Plus the guy with the double-necked guitar/flamethrower was the single dumbest and most pandering image in a mainstream movie in the past decade. Miller seemed to put it in to remind us that this movie is aimed at teenagers, and if you're an adult you should probably be a bit ashamed of yourself for enjoying this.

Still a lot of fun, Charlize Theron was good, action sequences great, setting very good if not explored as much as I'd like.

All in all I'll give it 4/5, third best of the Max movies (all of which are above average).

I said this in another thread and I'll repeat it here. The Main issue I had with this film was that I simply didn't care about the characters, and therefore what happened.


I cared when she died.


I cared when he died.

The list keeps going. With Fury Road I simply didn't care when anything happened with these characters.

Why You Should Not Go See “Mad Max: Feminist Road”


Quote
If you were like me, the explosions, fire tornadoes, even the symphonic score surrounding “Fury Road’s” first trailer made your attendance a foregone conclusion. It looked like a straight-up guy flick. No f**king around.  Perhaps even a little, hidden acknowledgement from the director that when the s**t hits the fan, it will be men like Jack Donovan Mad Max who will be in charge.

But then my spidey senses started noticing a couple things.

Charlize Theron kept showing up a lot in the trailers, while Tom Hardy (Mad Max) seemed to have cameo appearances. Charlize Theron sure talked a lot during the trailers, while I don’t think I’ve heard one line from Tom Hardy. And finally, Charlize Theron’s character barked orders to Mad Max.

Nobody barks orders to Mad Max.

Watched it two days ago; enjoyed it immensely.

I thought Theron did an outstanding job, great role.  Guy who played Max did well -- laconic, appropriately intense.
The action and practical effects were consistently excellent, and the movie was wonderfully over the top in moments.

my honest reaction re:  the guy playing the flamethrower electric guitar:  it was fine.  Yeeeeesh.
