1. The technical side of the film deserves a standing ovation. Great cinematography and design, but most importantly, superb combat, violence and vehicular choreography. One rickety monster truck collision after another, spikes and grenades and some limbs flying about. Fun. Very pleasant on the eyes.
2. There's little dialogue. I like that. In an action movie, the less verbal fluff, the better, and Mad Max: Fury Road does an excellent job at conveying necessary information through context, while leaving out most other jibber-jabber-inducing elements.
4. Despite all the buzz regarding its supposed Feminism, the film is simply a solid, very well-made action flick. That left me pleasantly surprised, as I went in expecting a fair amount of preachiness.
5. I wonder who was the first person to decide anything about this film is unusually Feminist. I strongly suspect they hadn't seen more than two action films before reaching that conclusion.
6. Apparently it was Eve Ensler.
7. Someone, somewhere, probably went to see the film solely because of said buzz despite not liking action, and ended up being bored for 120 minutes. Someone else probably felt obligated to pretend to like it.
8. Perhaps it would've been easier to take the guitar player seriously if from afar, he didn't look so much like Santa Claus.
9. The crow-like stilt walkers were beautiful.
10. Using the nipple guy's elephant-foot to weigh on the gas pedal was a wise and creative choice.
11. It's a shame they didn't show more of Theron tearing off Chief Bad Guy's face.
12. On a more serious note, the plot is rather dumb. One example is Hardy's oh-so-noble, oh-so-mysterious disappearance into the crowd in the end. It's all about survival, but apparently only when it's not about dramatic flair. Another is the milk-producing women getting magically freed just in time for the arrival of the Good Guys.
13. The fact that the plot is dumb matters very little.
14. I wouldn't mind watching this again in a few months.
