Living in a time where everyone is obsessed with zombies, disease, and everything that's closely related to post-apocalyptic doom, 1979's Mad Max hit like a cool air of an electric hand A/C. Just like how everyone seems to think that psychology in movies equal to copious amount of blood and numerous jump-scares, they also think that zombies and/or gangsters will be the post-apocalyptic world's onl... read more

A classic

I have re-watched it recently and, even though I was pretty sure I saw the damned thing when I was young, I think I actually never saw it at the time. I think it has to do with the fact that ‘Mad Max 2’ was called ‘The Road Warrior’, therefore ignoring the first installment so I probably thought the sequel was the first movie. Anyway, this movie is definitely a milestone and for many reas... read more

A bit of suspense, a bit of action, a bit of dystopia... Mel Gibson before he went wacko. What else do we need?

"6.6. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Muistini yhdistelee asioita ja näin tiedän, että olen viimeksi katsonut tämän 12 vuotta sitten, kuukauden tarkkuudella. Suoraa toimintaa todella innovatiivisesti toteutettuna. Pahat budjettirajoitteet kääntyvät eduksi upeissa kamera-ajoissa ja leikkauksissa, jolloin katsoja on toiminnan ytimessä mukana. Keskiosiota on kovasti kritisoitu tylsäksi ja huonosti elokuvaan istuvaksi. En tähän yhdy, sillä se taas johtaa suoraan pitkään ja painostavaan tapa"

" Notes: This movie is definitely a milestone and for many reasons. Indeed, not only was it the directing debut for George Miller, one of the most successful directors coming from Australia, but it was also of course Mel Gibson’s debut as well. To be honest, in my opinion, the whole thing didn’t grow old very well but, with such a small budget, they still managed to make something quite striking and pretty bad-ass, that’s for sure.
