Yeah, Mad Max is kind of an example of a good film made for no budget. The Road Warrior is an example of what a director can do with a good-sized budget.

Unfortunately, if you give Miller a huge budget, you get a steaming pile of excess, over-indulgent sh*te called "Fury Road" which I hate with a passion.

Anyway, will you finish out the Mad Max trilogy with "Beyond Thunderdome"? I remember the cinemas at the time not knowing if they should label it "Mad Max 2" or "3".

Yeah I started watching Thunderdome but got interrupted and haven't got back to it yet. Two quick thoughts: I always thought the biggest problem was that it was too similar to Road Warrior but now I see it's different in a lot of ways. Second, wow the memories, I watched the hell out of this one as a kid but I haven't seen it in a long time.

I don't know that I hate Fury Road but I sure didn't love it as much as everyone else seemed to. After rewatching Road Warrior I could really do without the extra flourishes of Fury Road.
