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.

I'm not a fan of the Mad Max series. But Fury Road was very good. I watched Fury Road on Netflix. The movie is continuous action.

Gladiator is the best movie experience I think I ever had.

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



Is it now?

Miller clarified that he thinks of it as neither a sequel nor a reboot... rather a "revisiting".

How is Mad Max: Fury Road connected to the previous three Mad Max movies? Do you consider it a sequel, a reboot?

Itís connected in spirit. Itís kind of revisiting a familiar place for me. The films are loosely connected. Each one was made with different impulses, and this is clearly a postapocalyptic wasteland. (...)

Forget where I posted this before, maybe the Fury Road thread in the movies section, but Miller has said three different stances in regards to Fury Road. He's said it's a sequel to MM3, he's said it's a hard reboot and he's said the above, a re-imagining of the character.

It being a sequel to MM3 makes no sense, as his car was destroyed in MM2. The hard reboot and re-imaging stances do.

Well,

Tom Hardy's Mad Max probably lived through some events vaguely or completely reminiscent of the ones that Mel Gibson's Mad Max lived through, so basically Fury Road could be a sequel to an alternate counterpart of the original "version" of Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome.
