Rarely is "more of the same" a good thing, but this may end up the exception.

is there some 'man who sold the world' going on in that soundtrack?

For sure.

Is this in 3D? I saw Fury Road in 2D and some of the 3D stuff looked kinda goofy

Andy the Grasshopper, Tuesday, 19 March 2024 22:59 (two months ago) link

for Fury Road they tried to make their own 3D cameras and it basically didn't work so at the last second they were like pfffft, let's just do it in post. I saw it in 3D when it came out and tbh I thought it was amazing that way

memphis milano: the new trend of the 80s (bizarro gazzara), Tuesday, 7 May 2024 09:14 (three weeks ago) link

Speaking to Total Film magazine last month, Miller’s longtime producing partner Doug Mitchell let it slip that “Furiosa” contains “one 15-minute sequence which took us 78 days to shoot” and required 200 stunt people on set daily.

“George and I would have these big conversations about why this particular set-piece was so long,” Taylor-Joy told the publication. “It’s because you see an accumulation of skills over the course of a battle, and that’s very important for understanding how resourceful Furiosa is, but also her grit. It’s the longest sequence any of us have ever shot.”

hnnnnnggggghhhhhhhhh

I'm kind of astonished that nobody in London seems to be screening Fury Road (or all of them) in advance, not even the Prince Charles.

Anya Taylor-Joy only has ~30 lines of dialogue in #Furiosa

Tom Hardy also only had 63 lines of dialogue in #FuryRoad

George Miller says “The problem with dialogue is that it tends to slow things down. Film is a medium often best enjoyed at high speed"

“The problem with dialogue is that it tends to slow things down. Film is a medium often best enjoyed at high speed"

If George Miller tried this approach with a romantic comedy he'd make it about 15 minutes long.

Please. It would be all vigorous fucking for 1:45.

pretty sure he's talking about this specific genre here

https://www.newyorker.com/culture/the-new-yorker-interview/what-george-miller-has-learned-in-forty-five-years-of-making-mad-max-movies

Great interview, got me hot to see the movie more than any trailer ever could.

Ippei's on a bummer now (WmC), Sunday, 19 May 2024 22:54 (one week ago) link

Didn't make me want to watch Furiosa but did make me want to watch The Road Warrior on mute (he mentions editing it like a silent movie).

Yeah that was a fantastic read! Miller is very thoughtful and self aware not only cinema, but its craft, and is thoroughly honest and humble in how both have changed over the years, with the ultimate goal of audience pleasure in mind. Brilliant.

octobeard, Monday, 20 May 2024 01:07 (one week ago) link

Few movies I've ever seen exhibit that breathless and intense first rush coupled with the depth that offers satisfaction through repeated viewings than Fury Road. It's like The Downward Spiral that way for me, and I love how he talks about how intentional it all was both in the backstory and lore, but also in the technical challenges of editing and presentation. The baby with the bathwater part when discussing the issues the guitarist character had with the initial screening was a perfect example. Simply adjusting some of the sound editing fixed the issue, whereas other directors less confident in their craft and movie making instincts might have cut the character entirely.

octobeard, Monday, 20 May 2024 01:13 (one week ago) link

Tickets acquired for tomorrow afternoon. Kids' last day of school was today, so this'll be a grand way to kick off summer.

Urgent and necessary Fury Road rewatch complete. Bring the fuck on for tomorrow.

Ned Raggett, Thursday, 23 May 2024 02:31 (one week ago) link

Also watching it tomorrow night, late showing too!

octobeard, Thursday, 23 May 2024 04:52 (one week ago) link

i have to see my brother's one act play tonight, and feel like I'm going to beeline to the movies right after....

Iacocca Cola (Neanderthal), Thursday, 23 May 2024 13:43 (one week ago) link

The reviews are almost all really glowing, and the ones I've read that are a bit more middling or apprehensive still make it sound really good, and don't seem to be judging it as its own film but judging it based upon the Fury Road model of pacing and action.

omar little, Thursday, 23 May 2024 16:58 (one week ago) link

i'm going in coooooooooold.

10:30 baby

Iacocca Cola (Neanderthal), Thursday, 23 May 2024 16:58 (one week ago) link

And coming out hot

omar little, Thursday, 23 May 2024 16:59 (one week ago) link

i kept wanting to rewatch all of the Maxes going in like I did with Fury Road but my brain kept saying "nah man, it'll be more exciting to just go in fresh ,then rewatch everything after'. hope I'm right.

i predict I will see this 5+ times in the theatre

Iacocca Cola (Neanderthal), Thursday, 23 May 2024 17:21 (one week ago) link

my friends couldn't get it together to make plans around seeing this so i just bought myself a ticket for a 9am imax showing on monday... hope i make it lol

9am? I'm surprised that's even an option. Certainly gonna wake you up!

lmao I did that with Fury Road. booked myself like a 10 or 11 am film and it totally made the rest of my day

I complained about the length before I saw it. Except for one of those throne room scenes it didn't drag a bit.

idk I don't go to these things for emotional heft: I go for dogs carrying human feet in their mouths.

also there were very young children at my screening and they all fucking loved it

some parents brought an 8-year-old boy, a 7-year-old girl and a 5-year-old girl to the IMAX screening I saw today

which highlighted how MUCH more gore there is in this one than Fury Road

Yeah, I'm no prude but as I was walking out I caught a similar such family and was kinda like "woah, how very progressive!" Lol

Reveal your uncool conservative beliefs itt: 12yo is the age limit I'd put on taking my hypothetical children to this movie, and even then I might second guess the decision

Burke was absolutely fantastic in this

H.P, Tuesday, 28 May 2024 04:41 (two days ago) link

I would not let my very smart, grounded, avid reader 9yo, watch Furiosa, let alone this.

Hey Bob (Scik Mouthy), Tuesday, 28 May 2024 06:43 (two days ago) link

what about Furiosa though?

bae (sic), Tuesday, 28 May 2024 07:30 (two days ago) link

Also, was Hemsworth channeling...Heath Ledger?


there was one specific point when i thought this… the initial negotiation with Immortan Joe I think, where he “forgets” the code to stop Gas Town exploding.

Fizzles, Tuesday, 28 May 2024 07:33 (two days ago) link

at times Burke looks like Robert Palmer.

the talented mr pimply (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Tuesday, 28 May 2024 09:23 (two days ago) link

Amusing that I mainly know Burke as “the guy from The Souvenir” when that doesn’t even appear in the “Films” summary of his Wikipedia page.

Chris L, Tuesday, 28 May 2024 12:24 (two days ago) link

I'm sort of philosophically opposed to this because backstory and "universe building" has basically ruined movies imo

I wouldn't worry about it. It impressed me and I didn't remember shit about Fury Road or the others.

the talented mr pimply (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Tuesday, 28 May 2024 12:49 (two days ago) link

and I have no investment in this series, like, at all.

the thing is that george miller is a good filmmaker

This didn't play like universe building: it played like another chapter.

the "universe building" happens so elegantly here it could make you forget stuff like wonka, a universe elaborated upon as an excuse to make a funko pop

We took our 12 year-old, thought it was a little more intense at a few points than I thought, at least compared to Fury Road, but he loved it.

I thought it was really good.

Maxmillion D. Boosted (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Tuesday, 28 May 2024 13:47 (two days ago) link

yeah the thing about prequels is I generally hate them for the following reasons:

1) usually saturated in nauseating pathos
2) filling in literally every blank previous films left, so you're left with a Wikipedia article and not a movie -- too much exposition

But this movie largely avoided those issues. the pathos is there but mostly only in the last half hour and it's earned by then. and in regards to worldbuilding, that's kind of what most of the Mad Max films post OG generally do anyway, only the characters tend to be ancillary.

Furiosa barely has any dialogue as opposed to the typical prequel where every bit of dialogue is in service to exposition which is nice.

Iacocca Cola (Neanderthal), Tuesday, 28 May 2024 13:59 (two days ago) link

I think the movie is explicitly against universe-building in that it presents itself as a legend. We see a History Man! And toward the end, he almost explicitly says "fuck it, print the legend"

It's not a huge plot hinge to do so, only an acknowledgment that these are little stories passed down through the ages and details may have been changed to make it more epic

ɥɯ ︵ (°□°) (mh), Tuesday, 28 May 2024 14:06 (two days ago) link

ok cool this all sounds good, my reservations being more or less what neando posted

and Tom Burke brings the movie to another level; the movie almost can't bear his intensity of feeling.

the talented mr pimply (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Tuesday, 28 May 2024 14:15 (two days ago) link

the moment Scrotus said "and now...we're going to kill ya" and launched the attack against Dementus's crew, all I could hear in my head was "It's over Anakin, I have the high ground"

sounds like me on a date, down to the nickname

the talented mr pimply (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Tuesday, 28 May 2024 14:29 (two days ago) link

i could be wrong but i feel like the only part of this film that exists outside of the story at hand and is only there to connect it to a previous film called Fury Road is that brief shot of Max on the hilltop. and even then its so quick, and by that point youre just kind of riding with the flow of images that it doesnt seem forced or gratuitous.

my wife didnt really remember Fury Road and insisted on finding youtube explainers to try and refresh herself on the lore & untangle the chronology until she finally gave up in frustration and realized that it was all nonsense, and i was like "yeah dont sweat it, watch these cars go kaboom real big and it will all make sense." I like the fact that even George Miller is on the record as saying "I'm not really clear on how all the movies connect and dont care."

waste of compute (One Eye Open), Tuesday, 28 May 2024 14:29 (two days ago) link

I do find it funny that the amazing last 20 minutes of Mad Max 2 are no longer merely the climax of the films but actually now comprise the majority of the movie.

they're basically road pirate movies, people on huge rigs endlessly having to repel boarders, and it never gets old to me watching these extended road war sequences. not least the choreography of it all

Iacocca Cola (Neanderthal), Tuesday, 28 May 2024 14:41 (two days ago) link
