I've got nowhere else to whinge

>Dementus knows Furiosa knows the way to the Green Place
>never asks her again after the opening act
>Immortan trades Furiosa into his group to be a future wife
>when she returns to him, he doesn't even address this
>he isn't even thinking about it by the time of Fury Road
>Furiosa is shown sleeping amongst all the war boys and is apparently safe doing that
>Furiosa goes back to Joe after her solo escape attempt and decides that this time she'll do it with even greater stakes
>Furiosa is given no personal connection to the wives
>Furiosa is given no personal connection to Immortan

So they missed all the interesting bits of back story with Furiosa. But also:

>we don't see Dementus' biker horde break down properly, just the before and after
>we get maybe 2 hints that he's a tragic villain, but they're not given any weight or depth so he feels one dimensional throughout

But we do get:
>Furiosa had a mentor who (off-screen) taught her skills (that she'd already demonstrated)!
>Max saw Furiosa in the distance once!
>here's how they made the war rig!

I liked the giant fan guys and seeing the Bullet Farm and Gas Town, but the rest of the movie seemed like it just forgot how many good ideas were possible with this concept. It just explained the most literal events that lead to Furiosa in Fury Road.

      I wanted to know how Furiosa got to her position in Joe's army - women are either wives or milkers, except for Furiosa. There's barely anything with her earning Joe's approval or dealing with men trying to overpower her to take her position or authority away. Could have been a good concept but they fricked it.

        She runs off as a little girl and shaves her head to fit in with the lads. Then she works her way up as a mechanic. She stows away on the silver war rig to make a run home (that's why she's got a motorbike and food hidden underneath the tanker). That plan gets fricked up when the guy with the black horns attacks the rig. Praetorian Jack doesn't tell anyone she's a chick because he needs her help on the rig and he likes her. By the time she gets back to Immortan Joe with Dementus, she's got one arm and Praetorian Jack is dead. She's also proved herself useful as a Praetorian, and Joe already has like seven wives who aren't fricked-up bald crippled lunatics and needs a driver for the rig. The information is all in the movie!!!!!

          if any of that were true there would have been decent look-in audience for this: Furiosa would have developed her own fanbase because that's what happens to major characters in movies that are actually good.

          you're arguing that Fury Road was good, but also that people only really cared about the character from the previous movies. a good movie wouldn't have remained culturally subservient to the Mel Gibson films.

          it isn't at all. the plot is far more complicated, to the point of being all over the place. I often found myself thinking that you'd need a framing device and a narrator to tell a story that covers this amount of time and where the plot has this much politics (Immortan Joe and Dementus having an alliance but Dementus being trash at his job and declining over time is Game of Thrones shit not Mad Max).
          it's not better and it doesn't succeed at being a David Lean-style epic, but Fury Road was a literal 80iq movie and you can't accuse this film of not trying to do something different.

      They don't.Dementus doesn't recognize her until the very end when she is about to kill him. She has aged and shaved her head since she escaped him. Or did you miss the part in the execution scene when she askes him "do you remember me?" and he has a hard time remembering who she was? It had been like 10-15+ years since she was a child. You either failed to understand this, or are purposely leaving it out to shit on this movie.

      >girlboss
      It wasn't really though. Girlboss is defined by the feminist power fantasy of women running everything and being able to physically overpower men. In Furiosa, men run everything, and Furiosa only wants revenge for her mothers death by killing Dementus. She is overpowered by men in several instances when faced against them in close combat, as was her mother. Nearly all of her kills are with rifles or weapons at a safe distance. it was fairly realistic depiction of a smart, industrious woman surviving in the wasteland, all things considered.

          Some of your points are fair. The ending is a bit rushed. It isn't clear what we're supposed to gleam out of her journey: her whole goal was to kill Dementus to avenge the brutal death of her mother. But after their climactic scene, which was a classic "revenge is an empty feeling that will never be quenched" trope, she appeared to settle on releasing the women and bringing them back to her home, the "Land of Abundance".

          You other complaints, I'm not sure I understand them. Yes, she can drive and shoot rifles. From the opening sequence as a child at her home, and in the ensuing chase, she is shown to be very resourceful and industrious. It doesn't take much stretching of the imagination to believe she would be able to survive in the wasteland since she's been doing it her whole life.

          >absolute troony libcuck slop from some homosexual brained aussie no one cared about until shitty road came out.

                By that definition she isn't "a girl boss" but I genuinely think that her story of being able to raise up the ranks and rise to any occasion or challenge she comes across is impressive on its own merit. She's very competent. She doesn't have the drive to be a heroine, or really a main character, but I think she's a pretty damn decent example to young women that they can do pretty damn well in life if they don't act like fricking pussies and earn their worth in a meritocracy.

            THat is what happens though, and he's saved. Or did you miss the scene where Dementus bemoans the destruction of his bullet farm "after finally taking control of it"? Your prejudice is blinding you to what actually happened.

            He's saved, but because of the delay they get chased down and brutalised. She gave him hope that he might have escaped and instead doomed them both. He would have been able to cause that chaos on the bullet farm himself and likely not die half as harsly but would have had the knowledge that his girlfriend escaped back home and that Dementus would be too late to stop her.

              Yeah, and the Illiad wouldn't have happened if Achilles had just sucked up his pride like Ulysses and Phoenix and Ajax were imploring him to, and fought with the Greek tribes at Troy, but instead he sulks like a b***h in his tent while thousands of Greeks get slaughtered and his best friend killed, total ~Man~moment!
              Humans have emotions, and when emotional we make decisions that are unreasonable and stupid, only to discover we made the wrong decision too late. Doesn't stop the Illiad from being an incredible story. Furiosa is no Illiad, but it was a fun time in the theater. In an age where movies are filled with modern socio-political thematics and prejudice, it was refreshing to watch a movie founded almost entirely on action and struggle.

                The problem is that the movie runs off of "woman logic" whilst the setting runs off far more realistic male logic. Furiosa running back to her mum was illogical, endangered them both further, and again the movie doesn't change without her in it. Her hardships come about because she let's her female emotions take over and that gets the people she loves killed. Meanwhile when she actually acts with reason, shockingly she does pretty well for herself.

                I agree there could have been a better way for her to get captured by the biker gang but my point still stands. Batmans parents also could have not walked down an alley and then Bruce would have lived a quaint and quite upperclass life instead of being Batman, etc.

          She doesn't physically overpower anyone. Most of her kills are her sniping like a pussy from the dunes because she'd get torn to shreds by basically any antagonist in the setting. She needs to find ways to work around her weaker bulk using tools and her wits which is honestly totally fine. The problem is that she has little to no impact on her world. She's basically just a cog in the machine. Despite being competent enough to rise through Joe's ranks multiple times she doesn't have the force of will to be able to change anything.

              The Fury Road setting is only as fricked as it is because of Dementus damaging the functioning economy. Furiosa had basically nothing to do with any of that. She didn't enable Dementus' rise to power or anything of the sort. You could take Furiosa out of this movie and nothing changes whatsoever. Dementus will still end up in a feud with Joe which inevitably leads to Gastown and the Bullet Farm being trashed and Dementus' death. At most her inclusion caused the war to end maybe a little sooner since the war wouldn't have had Joe ambushing Dementus day one.

            the furiosa movie showed that the carrion eater water beggers actually create the "protein" by farming maggots off the flesh of the people the citadel's water spam attracts.
            so maybe furiosa is just pumping up the protein coz she knows she's gonna get attacked by gas town and bullet farm aka she needs to feed all the war boys.

    My main gripe with it was the sheer amount of times the movie was telling the viewer MEMBER FURY ROAD? Hell, during the credits they literally showed scenes from that film and even those 10 second bits were much better than anything in Furiosa.

  13. 3 weeks ago
    Anonymous

    Furiosa was so fricking shit omg... What a boring movie. Even the credits are just giving us snippets of the first film because they know how much better that one was. Horrible action scenes, no build up or payoff, the cg is distractingly poor... I think it's a full hour until the first decent car chase portion, it's the biggest and the only one with half decent action but it still feels half arsed compared to even the less engaging sequences of the first movie.

    I had faith in Chris as a villain too. A Roman legion. Something like out of fallout with him as a Caesar, Chris' aesthetic is just skin deep. The violence too!! Jeez oh jeez... Cutting away from any violence to make it fit a 12 rating was such a poor idea. Literally any time someone is about to die to something juicy they get covered up with sand or the scene cuts away. Dementus is well educated, acts like a Chad, and looks cleaner than most warty fricks in his army. Honestly the dude did pretty well for himself as a raider. His biggest flaw was letting himself settle down. That and not doubling down on his Roman ancestry.

    I found myself honestly ridiculously annoyed by her ruining the second escape. She could have let her boyfriend have a heroic sacrifice, dying in a blaze of glory and leaving his mark on the plains by destroying the bullet farm. Instead she interfered, got herself blasted because she couldn't wait five seconds for him to smash the pillar, and got them chased down leading to her arm getting shredded and her boyfriend to die a pathetic death getting dragged to a paste for mere entertainment.

    That's kind of where I feel the feminism of the movie comes through. It's certainly not a feminist movie, but it follows a feminine mindset and punishes it accordingly. He could have died a hero saving his girl but her woman brain interfered instead granting him the slightest hope of survival, just for reality to kick in and it to be recognised as a moronic decision.

      And how was he going to do that, exactly? How was he going to destroy the bullet farm? With an empty freighter? It was pretty clear he was going to die almost immediately if she doesn't go back to help him.

        Crashing the freighter into the pit would have at least fricked up production and been a nasty hit towards Dementus. At least then he'd have been able to die actually doing something rather than being given a pathetic end getting dragged behind a car. He wanted Furiosa safe and if she hadn't dilly dallied she'd be safe in the green place and he'd have died way less painfully and with far more adrenaline pumping through his system. Fleshbags being dragged into a bloody paste don't go to Vallhalla

    are you moronic? he didnt know that there was a green place, he knew she came from a place of abundance, then he meets a war boy who tells him the citadel is the place of abundance. after that, he takes gas town so he has no point to be going around chasing rumors

    >>when she returns to him, he doesn't even address this

    do you think that if something doesnt happen on screen it doesnt happen? she and jack saved an entire convoy by themselves, which is one of, if not the, most critical jobs to keep the whole place running, she was more useful as an imperator

    >>he isn't even thinking about it by the time of Fury Road

    she is respected as an imperator because she never failed a convoy except when she had to fight all of dementus gang, and even then she manages to escape and warn joe about dementus plan

    is shown sleeping amongst all the war boys and is apparently safe doing that

    they are zealots, if they arent allowed to touch her, they wont

    goes back to Joe after her solo escape attempt and decides that this time she'll do it with even greater stakes

    she was with the wives when she was a child, and they were the only people who were nice to her other than the vuvalini and jack, they probably reminded her of her mom and the other women in the reen place

    is given no personal connection to Immortan

    because it's clear to him she'll never talk. maybe she will talk if he treats her like family and doesn't bring it up, so that's what he does until she escapes.

    >Furiosa had a mentor who (off-screen) taught her skills (that she'd already demonstrated)!
    he teaches her how to drive the war rig, something she clearly cannot know how to do before meeting him because there was no war rig until just before his introduction.

    The biggest problem is, it's like Solo: A Star Wars Story, a pointless origin story for a character who never needed one. In this case, I do like Anya more as an actor, but that doesn't change the fact she and the other woman don't look anything alike and it's hard to see them as the same character.
    The second biggest problem is that all the coolest things in this movie are just repeats of the Fury Road. Yes, Joe and his gang are cool. But we've already seen them. Yes, the action scenes are cool. But they're too similar to what we already saw in the Fury Road. Yes, it's not "just" an action movie, there's a message. Feminism good, men bad, yadda yadda. Whatever you think of the message, The Fury Road already told us the same thing, but better.
    The third problem is that Dementus is nowhere near as strong a villain as Joe was.
    And finally it's just too long for what it is. They could have easily cut one hour and lost nothing of importance.
    The small quibbles about the plot you have aren't wrong but they could have been easily forgiven.

    Dementus was shown to have a child or children that died, and wouldn't torture her to find out. He did try to break her spirit but failed. As they travel looking for it they find one of Joe's men who tells him he's from that place when it's the Citadel, and Dementus then decides to push his way in to take over Gas Town to be their new home since they're wanderers

    Joe probably doesn't even realize Furiosa is that girl because he barely saw or interacted with her and then she ran away/disappeared. Then she spent years pretending to be a mute boy. Even Dementus didn't even recognize her multiple times. After she singlehandedly captures Dementus and brings him back to Joe, she becomes one of his lieutenants and she probably spends a few more years winning his trust and then saving the breeders and running away.

    Most of the other stuff are nitpicks. The movie is good. The issue is that people are conditioned now to wait for movies to come to streaming or they've had bad theater experiences recently because people have lost theater etiquette post-covid and there are less practical effects than CG. Plus, Mad Max has never been a blockbuster. Fury Road barely made money.

      This has been very true from my own experience, every time we go to the theatre there is some bozo making problems.

      When i went to watch Furiousa in theatres I found another couple sitting in our seats. I politely asked them to move and Showed them our tickets and they just completely shrugged us off, ended up getting an usher. They ended up storming out of the theatre in a huff.

      Usher told me they had tickets for a different time.

    woke writing has been horrible for media the last 20 years. all the checkboxes and then focusing on stunt setpieces has lead to regressive action movies and moronic stories

    good movies always have a great suspension of disbelief - thats why even though its full of plot holes and silly logic, The Dark Knight is still a good movie, because you're caught up in the moment (lets not get into semantics about maggie gyllenhal not being attractive, yes, we all can laugh at joker's comment in the penthouse fundraiser scene, we know she was a huge downgrade from katie holmes)

    I know TDK is a stupid example but its on par for this - its capeshit, in spirit, since its another spinoff sequel and the original was more action heavy while this just said "here's a prequel - but we focused on all the wrong stuff and made it even more confusing!"

    if anything, this seems like George Lucas all over with Miller - age makes you soft, and when you get old, you surround yourself with yes men and charlatans who subvert you and or you compromise with moronic ideas that you wouldn't do when you were younger

      >Max saw Furiosa in the distance once!

      I liked the giant fan guys and seeing the Bullet Farm and Gas Town, but the rest of the movie seemed like it just forgot how many good ideas were possible with this concept. It just explained the most literal events that lead to Furiosa in Fury Road.

      also Id like to add, this feels like Sin City 2 - all the spirit, charm, and hard effort of the first film is gone, and more shortcuts were taken, and a mediocre script was rushed in order to get the movie out, albeit years later, not 2-3 years like youd expect from this quality

      modern hollywood needs to wait on GOOD SCRIPTS or find good scripts, THEN makes the movie, with an uncompromising director that has balls

      this will make audiences return, good movies with good stories with good twists, that will lead to good word of mouth

      also make the movie release on streaming only a year later, but i cant really say, the marketing goons nowadays have all the data heuristics to see if interest will drop off faster or resurge a year later - thats why i suspect streaming comes so soon, because MODERN cultural zeitgeist has the attention span of a goldfish, things come and go so fast you can get whiplash

    I said once and I will say it again, the movie should've been about Scabrous with maybe Furiosa as one of his main soldiers. Dementus was defeated by Scabrous during the wasteland wars not by ayyriosa.

      It's somewhere right after 2.. maybe but right before FR. I don't remember if Max had the V8 in Thunderdome.

    I thought the movie was awesome. It could've been longer, if anything. I preferred the first half of the movie, pre-ATJ. but the ending was really good, especially with the monster truck chase.
