Fury Road is an action masterpiece and will be rightly lauded for years to come.

It makes action in films i’ve seen after look dull in comparison.
Quoting this with its anniversary recently...where it was lauded as an action masterpiece

If anyone is interested there is a 45min documentary on the making of Mad Max:Fury Road entitled Going Mad:The Battle of Fury Road.

It's available to those who bought the film on iTunes and a few other digital services. Apparently it was only completed after all the physical releases had been finalised.

Miller wants to do a Furiousa prequel and also a full sequel. .... I'd not hesitate to watch Miller's Furiousa movie..

It's taking a while because of a dispute with Warners Bros, they aren't paying Miller's production company because it said in the contract Fury Road was meant to be shorter and a PG13.. wtf

No Charlize Theron due to miller not wanting to use de-aging; I thought the film was overrated and Mad Max in name only.

Some great set pieces but no story, they leave a place to go somewhere then go all the way back.

Without Mel Gibson it isn't Mad Max.

Just like Indy without Harrison Ford is not Indy.

I was surprised at how faithful it was to my idea of what Mad Max should be like. I thought especially after so long away from directing Miller would mess it up with some awful bland sanitised modern interpretation. I was delighted to be proved wrong and GM pulled it off magnificently.

Absolutely loved it when it came out and still absolutely love it today. Only MI: Fallout has come close to matching the quality of the action since.

How on earth could anyone object to being supplied with a film that good? I assume WB are still banking the receipts and retail income stream?

It's superb! I've seen the film plenty of times and it still gave me chills.

studios want the pg-13 market, they think it will bring bigger profit but its never the case. Imagine a PG-13 fury road film

Film studios are very good at massaging their financial numbers for their own benefit. Here's a tweet from Ed Soloman, writer of Men In Black with regard to his profit payments from that film some 22 years later.

Which is incredible when that film apparently made 6 times its production budget!

a film can make a massive profit but they can hid the profits in marketing budget expenses etc, so the film can appear "a flop" on paper
