i blame the kids in thunderdome for making it so wimpy.. let face it it was a very commercial film unlike the first 2, which got very little publicity.. people who have never seen mm/rw liked it!


i cant see why it would be so hard to resurrect the V8's.. maybe he heads of back to civilization and finds the cop mechanic.. after all V8 never die... or was that Fords?


theres a big thing for redoing films at the moment so i guess it has a chance, i hope miller pulls it off but its going to take some doing

I hope it wil be more like MM and RW also. But there is a problem. Since RW there was already much time past. And to this movie even more. In BT there was already no gas. They drove on self produced methane. The facility was destroyed. And it is verry unlikely that people somewhere else had the same idea to produce fuel the same way. Or having the knowledge to build such a rafinary. In Bartertown there where a lot of people and only Master had the knowledge. At leest he was the one they where so desperate about in trying to capture back.


"UNDERSTEER" is when you hit the fence with the front of the car.
"OVERSTEER" is when you hit the fence with the rear of the car.
"HORSEPOWER" is how fast you hit the fence.
"TORQUE" is how far you take the fence with you.

I don't see it as very difficult, story wise, for MM4 to be set very long after MM3.


After all, Max was supposed to be i


Hell, it could even be set weeks after MM3 for all we know.





As for the Fuel, there are other alternate fuel sources that could be used.


Alcohol, for example..





Myself, I'd like to see some Unfueled vehicles in the movie. Sail powered vehlicles, animal drawn carts etc.. (not in the actual Chase scenes, mind you.. Gotta have Engine roars) Image

There are too many things that could easely f**k this movie up, mainly the apparant need for rampant commercialisation (which ruined BTD) and such. Like over production, which is the hollywood way of polishing turds.





Adding popular modern music, something I am rather worried about. Brian May's scores on the first two are great, it needs that kind of music, if I hear anything that resembles what they claim to be RnB these days in the movie, I am going to sh*t.





Cgi is another thing that could c**t everything up, seeing that it would drastically alter the whole feel of the movie.





Writing could be a problem, chances are that the story won't alter too much from the last two, and will more than likely just draw on the more popular chunks of them.





And finally (for now) another 'actor' improperly casted, because they are the hottest/biggest thing at the time (*coughTinaTurner*hackBitch), if I see anyone in the movie there because people know who they are and not because they can actually act, I am more than likely going to sh*t more (a little relieved that Aaliyah is already dead).





Oh yeah, George Ogilvie, noticed how much everything went wrong when he came along? They need another Byron Kennedy. (why not Nick Cave, f**k, what an idea)





And with storyline, f**k a prequel, thats the easy way out, it's bland paydirt and it is being overdone too much these days. I am liking some of the ideas throwen around here.


I have been thinking about an idea where he finally makes it back to Melbourne or Sydney (prolly Syd, being more knowen with landmarks and such) and finding a whole new utipian society, though there are wars between the Sydney and Melbourne tribes (which would be an excellent social commentary, you know, AFL!), but to run into anyone major from past movies may well be corny and perdictable...





f**k, why don't we just wait to see what happens?

just because technology gets destroyed, doesn't mean its gone for ever.. oil seams, coal, metals have been kicking around for millions of years and a surface devastation isn't goin to effect whats going on underground.. look back to the 18 century onwards and what man can achive with the most basic of tools.. the pioneers in amercia who made millions from oil who where normal folks with no engineering skills


how do you make a hammer without a hammer or make a lathe without a lathe? some clever fecker managed it! so why couldn't ppl in the mad max world achive the same :)


life will find a way

you have to concider this:


Back in the old days (1930 and befor) people were used to build/make most things themselves. That's way there skils were so high.


Nowadays people are used to the fact they can buy everything in the (local) store. Also there is a lack of knowledge. People arn't interested in self sufficiency anymore. Why bother if you can buy it? Most people don't even know how to grow vegitables ore prepare meat anymore.


If you compare the knowledge and skills from the people nowedays and later with that from the people 100 and more years back, we're scrude.

IF there was a global disaster 75% of people would die waiting for someone to help them or feed em!

Too true, or at least attempt to steal from those who've planned ahead. I saw a sign years ago that I'm tempted to put up on my gate it says "Trespassers will be shot, survivors will be shot again."


I was listening to a CD a mate from the US sent me one of the songs is from CW McCall of Convoy fame. His song Country boy can Survive said it all for me, get it if you can, well worth listening to.


I wonder how many of us here with a fascination for the Mad Max films etc actually have contingency plans or at least some food and supplies stashed away should even a mild natural disaster occur? Such as being cut off from the local supermarket by a snow drift or such. It's usually not until you're rolling down the road on a flat tyre that you think; "Damn I should have got that spare fixed"


Know what I mean?

i'd just drive it home lol, f*ck the tyre!


i must admit i don't do forward planning....


snow is a case in point, specially in the UK, no one seems to know how to drive in snow anymore.. inch of snow and the uk grinds to a halt!.. i when i was younger we used to go looking for snow lol


i guess we could look at people and work out if they would survive a global desaster... the UK would be a very quiet place i recon Image
