Sounds like a retread of the second, no matter anyway because "Fury Road" will never be.

That doesn't sound encouraging for a good plotline.. Image

He didn't care if he looked weird,

He made his name in a movie or two,

FURY ROAD co-writer and storyboard artist Brendan McCarthy states that in his view, the 4th installment will be "the true follow-up to Mad Max 2" - To differentiate it from the misstep of Beyond Thunderdome. McCarthy calls Fury Road a "serious, savage, sexy and surreal sequel". He also promises, " a raw, kinetic assault that will take you to that world of manic Mad Max mayhem. You've got a great movie barrelling down the freeway at you in a few years time."

Meantime, Mel will have aged another decade or two and his fee will have trebled. That's assuming he isn't tied up making a film about the the life of Mohammed or was it Buddha? Thier lifestyles are sooooo alike I forget which is which.


Are we living in a land where sex and horror are the new gods?

Too true.

I watched Matrix 2 and as much as I've enjoyed the film, the chase scene with Trinity on the Ducatti through traffic going the wrong way was, if anything, just too clever for it's own good. Yeah, I know they shot most of it as live action, but adding about 70% of the cars later using CGI really just made it unbelievable, as in; not good.

That's funny, I watched the Matrix 2 and I thought the chase sequence was stupendous. It was like Road Warrior on acid. The problem is that the Hollywood industry NEVER should have shown how movies were being made to the general "Tom, Dick & Harry" public. Those things should have NEVER been exposed. Never. But Nooooo... Effects and how they did it was exposed and f**ked it all up.

Get with the program. CGI is here to stay and isn't going anywhere. It isn't CGI that's the problem. Its whose directing the CGI and the writing of the scenes and stuff- the choreographers. Most likely Mad Max 4 IS GONNA HAVE CGI- like it or not. What I think they should do is a combo platter of convincing CGI, Matte Paintings and the retro style of filming- all 3 tactics. I would agree that if Miller uses ALL CGI in the film then in my opinion that is sheer laziness. But to even think that Mad Max 4 ain't gonna have ANY CGI or at least hoping that there won't be any CGI is nothing but a dream.

If they bring back aussie 70's cars it would be sick.
Imagine all the pissed off car nuts when they see a $60,000 XB GT getting chopped up for a movie prop.
Also my XB coupe / interceptor progect would be worth heaps.

"" It isn't CGI that's the problem. Its whose directing the CGI and the writing of the scenes and stuff- the choreographers.""

Yes it is the problem... its not real... therefor not dangerous... CGI is still imperfect and you can tell (most of the time) where reality ends and CGI starts.

People are not impressed with some of the CGI actions used in creating car crashes etc.... Its not hard to create a car crash.

If the movie is a sci-fi.. then yes one can say it can be used as you need it to create something which isnt real.
Look at Star Bores.... The orginal used simple graphics... and extensive sets.
The "new" star wars didnt blend in at all... 90% of seemed to be CGI... with hardly a real set used in any inddor or outdoor scene. This is why it flopped....

MM4 does not need CGI..... MM2 didnt use it ... it didnt have to.....

I'd hardly think they would buy GTs...

I just recently let my son watch the MM series, since they were showing the edited versions on TV. I named him Max after taking his mother on a date to see The Road Warrior and A Boy and his Dog, sixteen years before he was born, so I figured it would be cool for him. Throughout the movies I kept telling him "That's not computer generated... they're really doing those stunts!". He just couldn't believe it.

The easiest way isn't always the best way.

Vote "NO" to CGI.
