I just saw the Movie yesterday and it blew my mind. You know, I love MARVEL, DC, the Avengers and I think Godzilla was really entertaining, but these are all CGI-Based Movies. "Mad Max: Fury Road" is the most convincing and authentic retro-movie ever made! It took me back to my childhood, when all of the action was tangible with stuntmen flying and falling all over the screen, real explosions, real car-crashes - all the dirt, sand, rusty steel and screaming motors... it´s the most complex piece of handmade action I´ve ever seen, and on top of it all:

It´s just a fucked up world, filled with equally troubled characters, mutants and weird cults built around the remnants of a long gone civilisation. With no compromise, you´re simply thrown into this wild rollercoaster ride.
