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?

Fictional Places You Don’t Want To Visit (205 movies items)

"Somewhere in Post Apocalyptic Australia. The wastelands of the future, in Australian Outback. Why you wouldn’t want to visit: Biker gangs, roam the wilderness. A man can go mad and insane out here. “I'm a fuel injected suicide machine. I am a rocker, I am a roller, I am a out of controller! I'm the Nightrider, baby!” "

"18.2. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Vittumaisen tyly post western ja auringonpolttama ozploitation-helmi muuntuu puhekielessä jatko-osikseen ja joidenkin neropattien puheissa näihin nähden arvottomaksi (kolmosta kai ns. kaikki tosin toivon mukaan vihaavat), koska ei ole tarpeeksi auringonpolttama. Myönnettäköön, että harhaanjohtava markkinointi (ja jatko-osat) ovat saaneet minutkin ehkä ekalla kerralla tuntemaan jotain pettymyksen kaltaista. Kyllähän tuo sarjasta erottuu, mutta nimenomaan"

Movies I Watched in January 2021 (56 movies items)

" Date: 1/27/2021 Viewed: 4K UHD Re-Watch Note: This is the movie that started it all. Even 42 years later, the first Mad Max movie is still a solid movie. Mad Max may not be the first post-apocalyptic story ever (H. G. Wells' Things to Come did come out first), but it did help inspired many post-apocalyptic stories and spawn a big wave of copy cats during the 1980s. I love how Mad Max started off as a low-budget independent movie before it became a big mainstream movie franchise from Hollywoo"

"Re-watch - Dec. 2nd I wasn't sure what film I wanted to kick off my month with, and initially this wasn't even a planned stop for me. But then the news broke that Hugh Keays-Byrne passed away. And since I've seen Fury Road more times in the past few years I figured I'd watch him as Toecutter instead. He does such a great job of bringing this character to life, a mix of humor and menace with a strong presence that makes for a memorable performance. Sadly I haven't seen much of his work outside o"
