      >the music direction is even worse than the first, there isn't a moment in the movie uninterrupted by some cheesy, over the top orchestral score
      >1 has more compelling characters, in the second installment, out of the entire settlement, maybe two are memorable, and so is the helicopter dude, whereas in the first you had the love interest, Fifi, the big burly Police chief, Goose, the slick, loose cannon cop, the big dumb retard Benno, and all the villains who actually had development
      >even though 2's villains were more visually distinct, they had nowhere near the same presence as the ones from the 1st, the main bad guys in 2 are a queer with a mohawk and a bodybuilder with a revolver, they don't even do anything, in the 1st even the minor villain Nightrider had more development and depth

                The movie's pacing is garbage, anon. It's a car movie that is slow. Think about that. It's old, but it's shot and edited like a movie thats 10 years older than it is. It is almost never adequately established why any "sense of danger" is there in an urgent sense. When the scariest part of the movie is the female casting choices, you know you're fucked.

                It's not really a car movie, as much as it's a character piece about people trying to hold on to what's left of civilisation, while it's crumbling around them.

                It's a car movie that wants to invest in it's main character but doesn't spend enough time on him. Watching a balding woman play the sax doesn't really help. Like it or not, it sets itself up as an action car movie with a strong character through-line. However, you know what you're getting into in the first minute or two of the movie when we get these badass setup shots of Max about to enter the chase and then he just slowly pulls out into traffic.

                Only way it could have been saved is if they would have gone with the idea of making Lord Humongous from the 2nd film be revealed as Goose. But then you risk them screwing up canon eventually. What we ended up with is a film franchise that has no real canon continuity and that's probably for the best, so the first film being a shitty beta version that aged like milk is a good thing.

      Mad Max 1 & 2 (especially 2) essentially invented the post apocalypse genre as we know it. The setting, the aesthetics, the trope of merciless raiders preying on what's left of the good side of humanity, all of it. Thunderdome was a kids movie set in the Mad Max universe and is an embarrassment to the franchise.

    This is the first time I've ever seen anyone else have this opinion. I've always thought the first Mad Max was the best film of the series, but everyone prefers 2. The rationale I've always had for that for it is this:
    > 70's films are an acquired taste, 80's films generally have wider appeal.
    > Big budget stuff: the original was lower budget and produced in Australia. 2 was a big budget film with cool cars, costumes, and sfx.
    > 2 had a more sci-fi/post-apocalyptic setting which can be more appealing to a lot of people. The original had a more 'society still exists but is quickly crumbling' setting.
    > The first movie is a classic, kind of unoriginal revenge story, which had been done many times before Mad Max (eg. Death Wish), and many times after Mad Max (eg. the 2000's Punisher movie was a blatant copy.) I think this is the most valid criticism of the first Mad Max.

                Sure, he has his doubts, but let's not forget he's a product of the toxic environment he finds himself in (Fifi isn't out there, acting as an intercepter, it's only natural he's a bit more jolly), and also the predicament of him and his family being hunted down more than garners sympathy from the audience towards his attitude and deeds. Maybe he's not the "hero" in a traditional sense, but he's no less than a righteous protagonist. Hence the nuance, because there are glimmers of a darkness in him throughout.

                which he fails/abandons by the end of the film. He's more interested in quitting his job and burying his head in the sand then he is about protecting anything or anyone. There is nothing about the pacing in/around the farm that suggests anyone is fighting a cause. It's a family on vacation, likely because that's a common setup for a lot of horror films. Mad Max 1's pacing is abysmal.

    One is a great film, and honestly underappreciated in the franchise, but The Road Warrior is the far superior movie. It's mass popularity is a result of that.
    It's well known that George Miller read The Hero With a Thousand Faces by Joseph Campbell before making the second movie and incorporated the traditional hero's journey into the movie to a tee because of it. The structure and pacing of Mad Max 2 is classic story telling and the direction is fantastic. There's almost no dialogue in the movie, and that's because it's not needed. The hero's journey goes back to fairy tale and myth, as humans we're almost programmed to understand it. I've always maintained that you could show someone The Road Warrior who's never seen it and play the movie on mute and they'd still understand it perfectly because the themes are so universal and the direction is so good. Minus the ultra brief and concise exposition at the beginning it's all showing and no telling. It's pure cinema.

    It's also worth noting that the first one, while good, isn't really post apocalyptic. It's a character study with solid action, genuinely terrifying antagonists and great world building, but it's showing us a world on the brink of destruction, not one that's already been destroyed. By the end of the first movie Max's family being killed is his catalyst to becoming an animal. He is no longer driven by law and order, but by hatred and revenge. He drives off into the night a wild man, to "live off the corpse of the old world" as the leader in the second movie so aptly puts it. By contrast to the first movie, The Road Warrior's aesthetic and world building were so engrossing that it literally created a new genre of fiction: The Post Apocalypse.

    tl;dr the first movie is great and I'm not saying it isn't, but The Road Warrior is such a superlative movie that it's far more influential and timeless than the first. Thanks for reading my blog post.

      Forgot to add: While the first movie is essentially showing Max's downfall, the second movie is showing his redemption. He recognizes that all is not lost, that good still exists, and that people and community and civility are still worth fighting for. I think that theme is a big part of why the second one resonates so much more with people, if even on just a subconscious level.
