Mad Max | 1979 | dir. George Miller
For a film called “Mad Max”, it was disappointing to have to wait until the final 20 minutes for Max (Mel Gibson) to finally become “mad”, but what kept this film from becoming boring has to be David Eggby’s beautiful cinematography and George Miller’s impressive direction during the action sequences, both of which highly elevate this micro-budget sci-fi action flick to something very worthwhile.
Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior | 1981 | dir. George Miller
This sequel delivered exactly what I expected: a mindless, thrilling, and explosion-heavy film with great and bold direction, but that being said, the limitations due to the lack of technology in the early 80s slightly keeps this film from completely holding up as much as I was hoping it would, though I did overall like it more than its predecessor.
Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome | 1985 | dir. George Miller and George Ogilvie
This film is right in line with the other two, providing me with the same amount of satisfaction and also a slight feeling of guilt for not enjoying it more, but my biggest complaint for this film in particular is HOW CAN YOU GIVE ME THE GIFT OF THAT TINA TURNER GEM DURING THE OPENING CREDITS AND THEN HIDE HER FOR THE MAJORITY OF THE MOVIE?!?! Fucking rude…
