      It's not even woke though? Actually bizarre watching months of Cinemaphile screech about this movie and it's nothing like what they claimed. Top gun was way more woke than this.
      It's a pretty good movie which makes me confused as to why it's doing so poorly at the box office.

        It's doing poorly because of bad advertising (the trailer was awful). I also think modern audiences aren't really tuned for movies like this where everything is really weird and bizarre yet all of that is played straight instead of being ironic and comedic. As for all the woke screeching, that's because the site has been taken over by newbies from twitter and reddit who don't actually care about movies and just want to circlejerk about their American culture war shit endlessly, something that comes from the twittersphere.

        It had a lot of practical effects in a time where most action movies was just bad cinematography over green screened CGI and it was a really weird action movie that still played all the weirdness seriously. At the time it was a breath of fresh air for the genre.

        It was constant action that managed to not feel exhausting or repetitive. That's an insanely difficult thing to pull off in a movie, let alone the fact the movie made you care about the characters too. That's not even mentioning the great stuntwork, effects, editing, cinematography, production design, and directing.

        It's an immensely ambitious visual and action production. So much information is communicated to you visually in such short glimpses, as well as narratively communicated to you through implication. For example
        >Do not become addicted to water
        >You are awaited in Valhalla
        Just through the simple glimpses at the citadel at the start, we completely understand that Immortan Joe is someone who is completely full of shit, kind of created this thing for his own amusement but was also clearly very intelligent and resourceful, as well as a very despotic leader. That, plus all the different ways we learn about how these tribes and societies work, the vehicles and how those are put together and the strategies, is exactly how Star Wars captured audiences when the original came out. That it just throws you into a world that is completely mapped out and that is completely alien, and yet through familiar cinematic language it's communicating to you exactly what everything means. It only takes one "Witness Me" scene for you to understand the significance of that for these characters emotionally, so that what Nux does at the end has meaning.

        It's that, plus the fact it's such constant energy and so much is communicated visually that it has the energy of a silent movie. When sound and dialogue entered movies, our ideas of what a movie were, what acting was, what you wanted in a screenplay, completely changed. The art form completely changed. But up until that point the entire idea was to communicate things as strictly visually as you could. And you reach a peak just before sound creates entirely new challenges. Fury Road feels like a spiritual successor to Buster Keaton's "The General". Another action movie that's about watching hair-brained real stunts, and which is narratively as simple as:
        >They go this way, then they go back the way they came
        It's a strong argument as to why an action movie should be considered as legitimate as a drama.

          I can never stop pointing out that, right at the end when he capsizes the War Rig, Nux and Capable are still talking to each other with their respective "vocabularies". He asks to be witnessed by her, she does the vuvalini soul-catching gesture, but they fully connect anyway.

          For all the HURR DURR WOKE morons, I still argue that MM:FR does the whole gender discourse in a much efficient and powerful way than any other much-talked-about-lately movie, and it does it among a thousand other things done basically to perfection (stuntwork, effects, editing, cinematography, production design, directing, pacing, ecc...).

          It is kinda funny to see a certain kind of people cream themselves to EmpoweredBarbie-ishMonologue#3204 and dismiss Fury Road as some macho bullshit. Shows that they can't even notice what they pretend to be all about.

    Fury Road was a shocking movie with original aesthetics, great visuals and frenetic pacing. Also, the score added so much to the action. You have all of that missing in this movie. I liked it, but I feel it was unnecessary. Maybe if it came before Fury Road but whatever, don't need lore or setting development. That's just boring.

    it had literally no stakes because it's a prequel and you knew the fates of basically every character in it. even the new characters like praetorian jack and dementus were obviously going to die by the end because they werent in fury road.
    even if none of that was true, the movie would still be ruined by miller's unbearable feminist bent that poisons everything he touches.

      Anon, not wanting to be the child bride of the guy who killed your mom or the breading stock of some generic freak with serious health issues who’s obsessed with birthing healthy offspring isn’t some woke feminazi agenda. It’s a very sympathetic motivation to want to escape that.

        That was the most unrealistic part of Fury road. Granted they were led to believe that they will move to some paradise green place, but there was no way they would have the same quality of life even if that paradise was real. Do you expect me to believe that that would abandon a life of luxury where they have have to do any manual labour for the promise of freedom. Let's not kid ourselves, no way people in the post-apocalypse have the exact same morals and values as 21 century western progressives.

            My point was that they would never even consider leaving in the first place. Vague abstract concepts like human dignity, freedom, or self determination fall down the wayside when confronted with the reality of the world. When you live like a princess and your only job is to have sex with one man, you aren't even gonna consider leaving. Unless they thought that the green place would let them have the same quality of life where they didn't have to work, and not be "forced" to have sex.

              Judging by Furiosa the green place actually was a pretty well put together civilization before it went to shit. That, plus the fact that Furiosa very likely has a romanticized view of the place since she hasn't seen it since being a child and the fact that Joe takes in child brides could very likely mean that the wives don't have much experience with the outside world and genuinely believed that going to the green place would be an easy life free from old man dick. Not to mention that if you don't birth Joe a healthy child (and Furiosa makes it very clear it's Joe's genes that are fricked) you get turned into a milk machine.

                I haven't watched the movie since it came our so I dont remember it so clearly. I wasn't aware that the milk machines were formed wives. I guess that would make sense the will leave for that. But didn't the pregnant wife, the one that died, have a perfectly healthy child. I remember they pulled it out of her corpse and examined it.

                Yes, the wife in Fury Road has a normal child. The whole deformed child thing is mostly stuff that gets tackled in Furiosa, the wives you see in that movie are different from the ones you see in Fury Road to show how Joe keeps cycling them out and they establish that he keeps getting deformed children despite getting perfectly healthy wives which heavily implies that the problem lies with him and not the wives themselves. I do think Furiosa actually does a really good job for establishing why the wives would want to escape Joe, Fury Road itself doesn't leave us a lot to work with since it immediately goes into the action.

                Yea I only watched Fury Road, so I'm only going off what I remember from it. The milk maids were there only for a split second, and I cant remember now if it was explicitly said that they were former brides or as you say that that world building aspect was added in Furiosa.

                Yeah it’s all stuff from Furiosa. There’s a scene in that movie where one of Joes wives give birth and she at first seems happy and asks if it’s a boy only for it to be revealed to be a stillborn mutant baby and they take her away to be a milk machine and establish that there is a three strikes and your out rule for siring heathy children for Joe. The wives reaction to this makes it seem like being a milker isn’t something pleasant either. That scene, plus the fact that all of Joes three children are malformed in some way (Rictus seems to have a healthy body but is mentally moronic, Corpus is smart but his body is weak and deformed and he cannot move and while Scrotus for the most part seem normal he still has a deformed skull) seems to imply that the problem is that Joe himself causes deformed children (probably due to radiation) and not his wives. Like all of the extra world building in Furiosa makes the wives escape more reasonable and believable but it also doesn’t portray Joe as some incompetent cartoon character since he’s shown to be a more effective leader than Dementus.
