[QUOTE] I can't wait to see what Miller does next with Happy Feet. [/QUOTE] YES. Rituals! Also, Happy Feet is clearly the prequel to Mad Max. [QUOTE]Forget the Marvel movie garbage, this is where mainstream film need to head toward.[/QUOTE] So gratifying to hear that not just from you, someone who is naturally analytical about what you ingest, but from many other people who've actually never given that much thought into how much depth an action movie can have till now! They are awaiten! [QUOTE]This is the third time George Miller has remade "Shane." Good for him! [/QUOTE] A lot of people whose opinions I trust pretty implicitly talk very favorably of Shane. I better see it! [QUOTE]I had lost hope that Hollywood could produce anything interesting anymore, and suddenly, out of nowhere, Mad Max. I don't remember when was the last time I was so enthusiastic about a movie.[/QUOTE] Thanks for your kind words! I lost all hope for Blockbusters with Prometheus. After that I thought "hope is a mistake." But Fury Road has rekindled this hope. Especially when in all seriousness, I hear people all over saying "wow, I should raise my standards for what I expect from an action movie now." [QUOTE]After seeing the film my wife and I watched Road Warrior, the ostensibly best post-apocalyptic movie of the 80's. It didn't hold up well, with such interesting characters as the Humungous being killed off in a boring second just to end the movie. I won't even mention Beyond Thunderdome in any such dicussion. My only thought is that like Megaman, it's an engine propelled solely on nostalgia.[/QUOTE] I can't think of another example where a respected creator returned to the work that made them famous significantly later in life and actually IMPROVED on something that was already hugely iconic. I'm sure there are other examples but I'm drawing a blank right now.
