Fury Road is not as great as the rave reviews suggest and I don't think a 7/10 score is that far off the mark, although personally I'd give it an 8 as I love post apocalyptic action films.

I gave it an 8 and was told I was wrong.

Rampage 7.5 out of 10. Really enjoyable popcorn movie with some good humour in it.

Some very good action scenes

6/10


I know some people will rip you to shreds for that score, but id agree with it. I really failed to get the hype behind Fury road. I thought it was alright, not bad but didnt blow me away either, but all i heard at the time was BEST MOVIE EVER, which completely baffled me.


Never took much notice of any hype around the movie release and I'd completely forgotten about it until it popped up on my Netflix page.

Liked I said, some very good action scenes but on the whole pretty average and quite forgettable. Certainly not something I'd go out of my way to watch again.

A Quiet Place

I’m going to rate this a monster, monster , monster , monster, monster out of 5.

Been a long time since a film made me feel on edge, (the last was The Descent)


Non top relentless terror.

Having now watched the film I actually think it's the other way around.

Anyway, on to another movie I've yet to see. The Last Jedi. A friend from work loaned me his copy of TLJ today. Will watch it later in the week. Time to find out what has caused so much division with this particular film and which side of the fence I'll be sitting.

Fury Road was a fantastic film, it got a 9/10 from me.

Today i watched Pirates (in an adventure with Scientists), decent enough, but didn't really grab me in the same way that Shaun The Sheep did - 6/10

Fury Road has a good claim to be my favourite film of all time. The action is fantastic. It looks incredible. The world building is perfect. The characters are all so well realised and developed. It's the nearest thing I've seen to a perfect movie. I think I've watched it four or five times now.

I saw Isle of Dogs on Sunday. I enjoyed it, especially of course for the cinematography. It has a little bit of bumpy pacing (I think it lost some potential emotional impact had it been more focused) and maybe some superfluous characters, but it looked great and made me laugh.

I went to see Ghost Stories last night, thought it was fantastic. Definitely a couple of jumpy moments in there as well.

Planning on going to see A Quiet Place as well later this week which should be good.

All opinions are subjective. Some people think that Fury Road was a great movie and is deserving of a high score. Some people didn’t like it so much and so rate it lower.

That second group are wrong, blasphemous even. They are evil people that should not be tolerated and we should do our best to remove not just from the forum but from the whole of society. “A half decent action movie” should be more than enough evidence to convict you of this crime and you can expect a painful execution to be carried out shortly.

Right.

Straight out of the gates I'm going say Fury Road is the best (not "one of the" THE) best action film ever made. I remembering exiting the cinema and being unable to speak. Me and my partner just sort of stuttered at each before collapsing into laughter. I haven't been so happy, so utterly blown away, after seeing a film since... I can't actually remember. It so good it's difficult to figure out what I liked the most: the live action stunt work, the imperceptible use of CGI, the cinematography, the world building, the narrative, the gender-politics... If I had to plump for one I'd go for the design of the whole thing.

The world Miller built is just insane. Literally. There are so many post-apocalyptic worlds out there these days, The Hunger Games, the Divergent films, The Maze Runner films, The Walking Dead show, that it's become boring. So boring. They're usually grey (or brown), full of miserable people moping about hoping not to die. There's usually some extremely obvious allusion to real world politics, or global warming, or some anti-establishment agenda. Which is fine. But Mad Max... it's just as grim as these other worlds but it's yellow, and blue and white and loud and fast and brutal. It's violent, but the violence is messy and (seemingly) unrehearsed. The characters explain themselves through their actions, not hamfisted dialogue.

The War Boys for example: nothing is said of how they began or how Immortan Joe founded them, but you know enough through their reactions to him, through their clothes and their cars and their weapons. The story is told through these, and the action, more than dialogue. Everything, from the War Rig to the Doof Warrior to the ruins of the Green Place, tells you exactly what you need to know. If they set another 20 films in this universe I wouldn't get tired of it (assuming they were all of this quality).

The gender-politics of it were a complete surprise to me, and one of my favourite aspects too. I actually had no idea why it's called Mad Max at all (well, I do. Marketing) as this is Furiosa's film. And Charlize Theron kills it. She's equal parts stoic and scared, mother and child. The core idea of the film becomes the conflict between the matriarchy and patriarchy which is so rare these days, especially in action films which skew towards pleasing the male audience they're targeted at.

Then there's the action, which I can't really say too much about. You either love it or don't, but more than a few times I found myself laughing out loud as cars, real cars not CGI approximations, smashed each other to scrap, or motorbikes flew over tanker trucks going 60, or men on poles swung like demented metronomes. I just...loved it. Fell in love with it. Then there's all the rest; the music, the sound editing, the camera work. Everything. There was not a single thing I would change about Fury Road if given the chance. And I can think of about 3 films ever I can say that about.

I am stunned that Taf likes Fury Road because there are loads of women. SJW gone mad. :roll:

Any legitimate argument on the pros of Mad Max needs to include its gender politics. It is, after all, an action film about motherhood. You wouldn't find many critical analyses of the Alien series that refused to talk about gender, why should this be any different?
