Hello Marauders,

Enjoy my hard work if you want:


THE MAD MAX TIMELINE
madmaxtimeline. blogspot. com


The original trilogy: "Mad Max" (1979), "Mad Max 2" (1981) aka "The Road Warrior" and "Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome" (1985).

Of course, "Mad Max: Fury Road" (2015) is an alternate universe, so there's a standalone timeline only for it.

I think you will enjoy my timelines and articles, because they truly explain a lot about the two 'Maxes' and their worlds.


Thank you and... have a nice read!

Cool, I may try to give it a read sometime...

Yeah, my understanding from what George Miller has said is that the stories are just sort of various stories of a mythical figure (Max), and they don't necessarily follow a coherent timeline.

Glad you'll check it!


Yes, Miller hinted that, even if I must say that the continuity of the first 3 movies, the original trilogy, is pretty solid and coherent anyway.

Love the films. Miller has stated conflicting info regarding Fury Road. First it was a re-imagining of Mad Max 2/The Road Warrior, then it was an alternate universe all together, then it was part of the original story line and the 4th installment.

To me the "re-imagining" with a side of alt universe makes the most sense, where the events of Mad Max happened and this is a separate split. With Max having his Ford Falcon intact in Fury Road when it was completely destroyed in Mad Max 2, among other conflicts makes be believe this makes the most sense.

I only really liked 1 and 2, which were amazing. I can't stand the reboot. I don't know why.

It's one of those movies that people either really enjoyed or hated.

To me in terms of quality/enjoyment:

-MM:FR

Fury Road is a modern masterpiece as far as I'm concerned.

There are so many moments that melt your face off it's so good, even on repeat viewings.

Give this man MORE $$$ and MORE resources, please...

It's amusing when you think about it that it's the same director who gave us Happy Feet...

Mind. Blown.

Anyhow, i liked the original trilogy less and less as they came out/i got older. I was 11 in 79 and 16 by the time the third hit theaters, and i found it really campy.
Fury Road was pretty cool.

Coupla OLD f#cks! I wasn't born until well after '79. 😝 stick out tongue

Yeah, Thunderdome with Tina Turner is pretty much garbage. The others are good, though, even if a little dated.

I grew up with the original trilogy, and The Road Warrior made the biggest impression on me as a kid when I was able to rent it on VHS. It was the most influencial of the three.

Mad Max 1, it was an impressive debut. Though Miller hadn't fully formed his post apocalyptic world at the time, everyone remarked on the film making talent behind what could have been just another exploitation revenge thriller. But it would take decades for me to see it without the hilarious bad American voice dubbing.

Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome, it actually took me forever to sit down and watch it in a full sitting. It just smacked of Hollywood taking the property and sanding down the rough edges, complete with the stunt casting of Tina Turner as his nemesis. As Miller shared his directing duties with someone else, his lack of passion behind the camera was reflected on screen. It's still good, but not really great.

Now, Mad Max: Fury Road - it was one the ten greatest movie experiences I ever had in a movie theatre, where I was so engaged it was like an out of body experience. That's only happened with films like the Original Star Wars trilogy, Saving Private Ryan, The Lord Of The Rings trilogy - films where I feel the director has me totally in grip. It was the best film of 2015.

"Thunderdome" is a movie full of passion, vision, sense of dynamics and kinetic energy.
It's one of the most visionary and epic movies of the eighties.
