A Tom Hardy Mad Max? Awesome, dude is an incredible actor and can definitely pull off the level of badass needed for the role.

Wow, they got it right for once. Now please make it rated R, and I'll shell out the cash.

This sounds awesome but how will he then play Lord Humungus in the sequel?
Bronson totally sold me on Tom Hardy. He can do no wrong.

Always seemed odd that they never made another Mad Max movie. Then again, that last one wasn't exactly a masterpiece (shudder). Of course, The Road Warrior was bad as well, but it was all kinds of fun. I guess by the time they got around to Beyond Thunderdome they'd lost whatever quirky mojo they had going for them since the original. We got a Peter Pan allegory, slapstick comedy, and Tina Turner. Here's hoping Fury Road gets back to its roots.

By the way, what happened to the Mad Max world? In the first one, society was obviously crumbling, but it still held up enough to employ cops and lawyers of one stripe or another. People had families, took vacations. But by the second, which wasn't set all that much later, things had completely broken down. And there are references to nukes, of course. So, what? Did something like Peak Oil hit, society went into decline before it got really bad, governments got desperate and nukes flew? Also, if fuel was such a valuable commodity, why was everyone driving around all the time?

Part of it is that its australia and there is a bit of australian culture involved in it. For a lot of australian history (especially early), the "outback" has been a really rough and tumble place, full of outlaws and lack of resources and hardscrabble struggle. So in the first one, Max lives on the coast where the majority of comfortable australian living exists. The idea seems still have some modicum of civilization in those areas where it was the most ingrained, (Mad Max) but then when he loses his connection to that civilization he heads into the outback/wastes.

Of course, the 3rd movie sorts of throws that for a loop a bit, but it also seems to travel far further forward in time, so maybe the idea is that the outback is becoming somewhat more civilized again? The article says one of the original producers of the series had died in an accident shortly before they made it, so everyones heart wasn't in it.

and of course, the implication is that the world fell in a resource war, but since australia isn't really the first target on "places to nuke" it managed to avoid the direct effect of that sort of war.

Tom Hardy on Mel Gibson "Mghshgh Arrrghmgm Shmrmrgrrgm"
 
2012-01-25 06:17:13 PM
Say what you want about Mel Gibson, but the son of a biatch knows story structure.

Also...
He cited "Road Warrior as his favorite of the films, since he liked how it was almost a silent film and "with the benefit of the first one, I think they made the film they wanted to make in the first place" and though "Beyond Thunderdome" is the least appreciated of the three, he didn't dismiss it, but he did acknowledge it went in a different direction after original producer Kennedy died in a helicopter crash before production and "George was really affected by it. It was an attempt to do something else, but I don't know that it knew what it wanted to do."
...this should not be one goddamned sentence. Don't try and force quotations into the 'flow' of a sentence if they have different voices, it's painful to read.

If you haven't seen Hardy in "Bronson" you really should rent it. It's a great movie. He's atotal nut in it and it's a good introduction to an actor, just like "Chopper" was a great intro for Eric Bana.

I always found not knowing why society collapsed to be part of the appeal of "The Road Warrior." It doesn't matter to the characters what happened, because they're now engaged in a struggle for survival, so why should it matter to the audience?

2012-01-25 09:40:04 PM
ACtually, despite all the crazy Gibson gave us some good films, and is a talented actor.

I think it would be amazing if he reprised his role as an aged Max. Someone who is grizzled, tired of running, and is about to lay the guns down.

Or you could do an Unforgiven take on it. Max could have turned his axe into a plowshare but got called out of retirement...

I enjoyed the Year of Living Dangerously, the Bounty, Tequila Sunrise.

i think Tom Hardy is a very talented actor.
But...

the Mad Max franchise died with "Beyond the Blunderdome" .
To reboot it in the day and age of CGI with a number of the main icons from the first and second film gone like the Interceptor and Mad Mel himself, you are left with another Blunderstruck.

With Blunderhole, the Segio Leone tone of the Road Warrior was replaced with an almost "El Topo for kids" style camp, the Interceptor was gone and the character of the gyro Captain was addressed as if everyone had some kinda of amnesia..
While the Train bit had some real "John Ford" feel to it, it was to the Mad Max trilogy what Return of The Jedi was to Star Wars;

A poorly made cash grab cobbled together from bits and pieces of the other films.

So, if we learn anything from the film history of "extended trilogies", if the third one sucks, the fourth will suck more, be it a prequel, sequel, nyquil or whatever...

Just leave it alone. I'd rather see "Babe the Talking Vengeful Pig" than to have what memories Blunderdroll almost ruined crushed into the ground even further.

Oh the good ol' "alcohol just brings our true selves outside" bullshiat fallacy.

Alcohol has mind altering effects on the body.

Not to mention that "true self" bullshiat is some of the bullshiest bullshiat ever bullshat.

A man's character is defined by what he does, so whatever inside dark desires one may have, they are meaningless unless you act on them.

You're not found legally conscious to make decisions about sex and driving if you're drunk yet somehow Gibson's tirade was showing his "true self."

C'mooon.

I guess you actually like ugly fatties and it wasn't just the treshold debilitating effects of alcohol last Saturday night.

Get real.

I may be misremebering, but I'm pretty sure that the war has already happened and society has totally broken down before the start of the second film, with the survivors fighting over the remaining resource.

I didn't think Thunderdome was that bad, although I agree it had a completely different character from the prior films. Of course the Interceptor wasn't featured, as it got blowed up in The Road Warrior. And the pilot in Thunderdome wasn't the same character as the gyro captain in The Road Warrior - although they inexplicably used the same actor, Bruce Spence, who has a fairly distinctive face. That's one of those little details that make Thunderdome inferior to the other two films, I guess, because the audience is left asking, "WTF? Why doesn't Max recognize his old buddy from the last movie?"

Thunderdome had some really great elements. I like the idea of Bartertown and the Master-Blaster character(s), and even the colony of lost children wasn't a bad idea. But it really wasn't on par with the other two - I do think, like you, they were trying to make some money off the franchise, when closure really wasn't needed to Max's story.

Beyond Thunderdome is my favorite of the three and I'm not ashamed to say it. No, the final chase scene isn't as good as The Road Warrior, and yes, using Bruce Spence to play a different character was not a wise choice. But I loved Bartertown. Tina Turner, not the best of actresses, made a good villainess. Master/Blaster was also a good character. I loved the contrast between Bartertown and the Lord of the Flies oasis where the kids lived. I think it really explored the whole post-apocolyptic world in a whole new way. I'm glad they didn't just try to repeat what they did in the first two. Glad, I tells you.

i think the war has happened before Mad Max, and society is in the process of breaking down piece by piece, even when we watch that movie. My take on it is that Max, having lost all he cared for that tied him to what remained of society, heads off into the wastelands where it has ceased to exist entirely. I'm not sure that implies that society on the coasts completely breaks down or if it keeps limping along... although the end shot of the 3rd movie seems to follow your reasoning, with them living in the burned out remnents of a major city

That's what made Beyond Thunderdome awesome for me. It had that whole mythical exploration of the new world and the new rules.

I think it's a pretty accurate description of what would happen if the world ended tomorrow. It also serves to show that maybe the same cycle has happened before. No, I'm not a wacko nutso Age of Aquarius guy, but hey, entertaining the thought is...well...interesting.

All in all, the series will forever be tied to pop culture due to its incredible influence on all things post-apocalyptic. You can see it from such disparate works like Hokuto no Ken / Fist of the Northstar to the Fallout games.
