As opposed to all the characters, environments, and vehicles in previous MM movies which weren't cartoonish at all? Really?

FR moved the goalposts, it explained why there was this tiny area where things weren't in short supply but then brought in other factors to consider (the use of people as a resource, religious zealotism, greed of the powerful, etc) ... who really wants to see every film tackling the same theme over and over?

Also, there's plenty of world away from The Citadel, Gas Town, and the Bullet Farm where people are only just surviving - we got to see them in FR - so what would be stopping future films from exploring that side of the world again?

In my opinion, the ability to create new and interesting stories from the world of Mad Max is the only way that further films will be made at all. The Road Warrior has been made already, it's time to move on.

Well said and I'm of the same thinking. Too much of repeating the same scenario time after time will only dilute what makes the Mad Max stories interesting.

But Fury Road is just a big repeat of The Road Warrior, with less story, the protagonist completely lost, and a comic book universe painted over the top of it all.

Nothing new is being explored. Nothing new is being said.

Everything that's been shoehorned into the world has blatantly been done simply to justify what they wanted to do with the plot. They wanted gunplay so they created the bullet farm. They wanted dozens of vehicles so they created Gas Town. They wanted more half naked women so they dreamt up the five-wives.

Anyone can take the early Mad Max movies and ad-lib new versions. We saw that with bad rip-offs and it's one of the more painful things to watch with the fandom. It's easy to go bigger, it's harder to go smaller.

What holds it all together and makes it entertaining is all down to the crew who built the vehicles and the stunt team.
