Thanks for the "Fury Road" reference. As a fan of the old trilogy, I found "Fury Road" to be extremely well photographed ... and maybe that's all? The story is utterly pointless. They escape from the bad place, drive for an hour, and then decide to go back. The end. Max could have been left out of the movie entirely and it wouldn't have made any difference. The movie should have been called "Furiosa" as Theron's character was the only good thing in the film.

I think Fury Road is what happens when you have too much money to throw at a project. the director winds up going way over the top.

the road warrior did a great job creating a bleak future with a limited budget. It was believable as a world fighting for scarce resources.

Fury road had a guy playing electric guitar with a flame thrower. The budget allowed the producers to turn their world into a farce.

this is a case where I feel parameters are good. Less is more. this is why I think indy directors can't handle things when they get a big budget. it damages their creativity.
