LOL. No. On the hospital bed sequence in MM1 you can see they amputated her arm.

Just checked it. This is the first time I noticed she is missing her right arm when she is laying on the hospital bed when the doctor is naming the grocery list. :roll: :mrgreen:

Removes a projectile from his shoulder (like the Bearclaw) and makes his way to the cab to do some damage. He is the main threat to the driver of the War Rig just like Bearclaw was to Max.

His mask is pretty similar, too

Did anybody mention that The Bullet farmers Rant after his eye are destroyed is in the same tone as the Night riders in MM and just happens to happen at Night?
" I am the scales of Justice,Conductor of the Choir of Death!!"I'm sure that's not all of it but I can remember at this point.

Just re-watched "Mad Max" last night and noticed that the same sign that Roop shoots during the opening chase is the same as the one being used as a shield by one of the boarding marauders during the final chase in 'Fury Road.'

Someone posted that one but it's a very cool thing to spot.

Just read a couple of interviews with the VFX supervisors of FR. They both say that this world FR happens in is totally different from the world of the original trilogy, and that no comparisons should be drawn, apart from the obvious nods Miller made.

So basically, it's a complete reinvention, total rewrite of the Mad Max world, inspired of course by the original hence the numerous references.

Interesting.

RedHotRyder,

Thanks for the reply. I immediately recognized the Buzzards were a reference to The Cars that Ate Paris. I was wondering if they were also a reference to Doomsday, a movie that borrowed a "few" ideas from Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior. :mrgreen:

Just remembered an other reference to MM1
When the People Eater takes over the steeringwheel to get his limotruck run over the Valkyrie, he his laughing sadistically. That is a reference to the sadistic laugh of the Nightrider when they approaches the kid on the road.
