    I was worried about Max's face but he was wearing that mask at the time. So I guess I ought to have been worried about their fists.

    I really love that until someone pointed it out, I never even thought of Furiosa as someone who had a physical disability

    Like obviously I thought she had a rad robot arm, but at no point did her lack of arm ever become something I really like, noticed all on its own

    That whole thing felt really well done!

    Yup! Even when I saw her without the robot arm, it didn't really register with me

    And later when someone was talking about how the movie handled handicapped people, I was like, 'There wasn't anyone with--ohh, that's right!'

    Just in case you guys don't know. Nick Newell is an MMA fighter with a stump arm like Furiosa. He knocks people out cold with his stump.

    Finally watched Fury Road properly.

    That was so much more enjoyable than the first time.

    So so so so so much more.

    I know everyone's probably sick of hearing about Fury Road, so apologies to all those who haven't seen it or didn't enjoy it for clogging up the thread.

    Still...

    Saw it for a forth time, basically cos I had to take all my family members to see it, STILL noticed stuff I didn't before
    the war boy that falls off the cliff at the start trying to grab Max actually yells "WITNESS!" As he falls. And when a hedgehog vehicle gets taken out the war boys yell "MEDIOCRE!" Implying it's something Immortan Joe says a lot and has become part of their vernacular as they imitate him. There is seriously so many touches, so many connections and through shots. Sometimes I'll wonder where a vehicle came from, only on my next viewing to realise that a previous scene shows it. Also Organic Mechanic is what I'm calling all doctors now. Also the grease on the forehead definitely seems like an Imperator thing, as all the guys on Immortan Joes rig have it, and they refer to the white paint guys as war boys as if they were seperate

    I noticed that the War Boys shouted "MEDIOCRE!" too, but I was a bit confused about why, because they seemed to be shouting it immediately after that one dude does the double spear jump and takes out the hedgehog and that was clearly very awesome.

    I guess they could have been shouting it at the Russians, but that just seemed odd.

    His head is not black, it just looks like mud.

    edit: Which would also fit with his seeming aspirations for greatness and imitating those he respects.

    Put me up on the "Chappie was a flawed but really fun film" camp

    I have like, a physical craving for Blomkamp's filming style and sense of aesthetic. And I really enjoy the general thread of South African social justice which is present in almost everything he's ever directed outside of a couple short films. And I have a high tolerance for Die Antwoord. So Chappie was alright at the very worst.

    But then I even enjoyed Elysium a lot so maybe I'm just weird

    so here are my problems with mad max
    the night scenes were too blue maybe
    it was a little too easy for like eight people to take out immortan's whole army, the war boys didn't feel quite imposing enough as a unified force
    casting veered slightly too white, where are all the asians and the arabs and the aboriginal people

    that's it, those are literally the only problems that exist in the movie. everything else was perf

    i keep thinking about the war boys and how they seem like they're going to be these brainless ugly mooks that get slaughtered by the bucketload and how gradually you realize that they're as victimized by the patriarchy as anyone else

    like when nux comes on i'm like, who the fuck is this guy, keen for max to kill him, and it turns out he's this immensely sympathetic and tragic figure

    it reminded me of good rpg writing in a lot of ways. the way information is compressed and the world is built from trivial details which come at you too quickly to process all of them at once. i want to analyze every character in every frame

    the opening scene with nux came across as super Shakespearean to me, in both how they were talking and the way the scene was shot. it might be one of my favorite scenes of the movie.

    like i'm not making fun of you, it's an interesting question

    there was something kind of, i want to say, coriolanus-y about it? like the ralph fiennes coriolanus. the way they touch their heads together

    Yes the Ralph Coriolanus was my immediate connection.

    From a shooting perspective I think what helped is that nux anchors that scene by being literally tied to max. So it felt really stage like, with even the moment where his lancer takes the wheel showin him in the back.

    That along with the way the war boys talk made it very evocative. The energy was like the opening scene of a play with some bit players serving as a sort of chorus.

    They didn't take out the whole army though, they managed to stay well ahead of almost everything thanks to Nux fixing the War Rigs engines. Also, that first chase scene makes it abundantly clear that the War Boys are not a cohesive force, with Nux and Slit speeding ahead of everyone else and the almost total lack of teamwork fighting the Buzzards.

    In almost any situation where the War Boys had numeric advantage, people died.

    I definitely agree with the casting, especially with Australia being the setting, they needed more aboriginals.

    The night shots were pretty obviously night-for-day shots, which is why they're so blue. Blame the nuclear apocolypse for the lighting change.

    With the racial makeup of the cast in Mad Max,
    I want to say that the canyon bikers were multi-racial but with all the costuming and how fast everything moves its super hard to tell. But yeah, the only diversity in the casting is the guy in Max's first nightmare, a portion of Joe's downtrodden masses and Zoe Kravitz.

    As for the War Boys, imagining an egotistical warlord like Joe also being super racist wouldn't be a hard stretch.

    Hopefully the next movie is a little less overwhelmingly Caucasian. I'm hoping for Terry Crews as a rival survivor, myself.

    Wasn't at least one woman in Furiosa's tribe Asian?

    ...okay, I just looked it up and it might have been the actress who is half-Maori.
