Beside the 3 MM movies, I've only seen The witches of Eastwick and Happy feet.
Both are good movies.
I only looked at the list of movies Miller has directed.
"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.

We can include any movie Miller worked on too. BABE is excellent as well, Miller co-wrote and produced it.

Witches of Eastwick is grotesque. It's probably the only film in Miller canon he disowned. Even MM3 (which he co-directed) is way better.

And none of that has anything to do with the title question of the thread. I never said it was better than the others. In fact, of the others, I've only seen Dead Calm and Lorenzo's Oil, but I liked Witches more.

"The Chain Reaction" (1980), though he only did second-unit direction for the chase sequences. His segment for "Twilight Zone: The Movie" was pretty good. John Lithgow gave an great and intense performance.

I just bought DEAD CALM the other day on Blu-ray. Pretty good transfer, plus the trailer. I have all of Miller's movies on Blu-ray, well all the ones that are on Blu-ray. They all look and sound great, but could have more bonus features. THUNDERDOME for example. I would have liked the making of, plus the WE DON'T NEED ANOTHER HERO video which Miller also directed.

The Twilightzone with the monster on the wing tearing out the engine was so great! It holds up even today the effects are great and was really similar to Mad Max 1 the way it builds up to the end! I was shocked and pleased to see it was him who did that segment after years of watching it. It was also a remake of an original episode of twilightzone too. Cant remember the name of episode or segment.

I do find it surprising that on a board dedicated to three of his most famous films, the majority of the posters here seem unfamiliar with the bulk of his work outside of Mad Max. It's not like his aesthetic style is unrecognizable - I mean, you don't even need to look at the credits to know whether or not he's involved. Just wait for the sudden, extreeeeme close-up from a wide-shot during a dramatic sequence. Or whether or not the plot deals with small communities trying to survive in a barren wasteland - the two exceptions being Witches of Eastwick and Lorenzo's Oil.

The original episode was called "Terror At 40,000 Feet," and starred William Shatner.
