The George Lazenby effect?! :lol:

The situations are so utterly incomparable that it's not funny.

9/10 joint MOTY. Pure spectacle and bombast and some of the most holy f- action I've seen on screen but where Miller blows everyone out is building a strong and convincing enough emotional core and connection to the characters and the cause that it ends up being so satisfying emotionally too. The SCALE blew me away, this is a different beast to The Road Warrior. Hardy was very cool, but Theron and Hoult owned this - which especially atory wise was the main and only flaw. Heart pumping from first shot to last.

Nicholas Hoult, painted white and playing someone more nuts than the main man, gives a surprisingly nuanced performance in a film that doesn't prize acting.

DREAM freaking sinks. 8-) 8-) 8-)

Damn a lot of reviews are mentioning Hoult injecting nuance. Considering the trailers he looked so over the top and fun in a terrific way but if he manages to add nuance and depth as well? DAMNNNNN!
HOULT IS THE GREATEST ACTOR ALIVE!!!!!!!

So apparently this is one of the greatest pieces of cinema in history.

Guess I'll give it a go.

Anything's possible, but I think this is still too soon in the year and way too blockbustery for any serious awards consideration, which is a shame.

Who knows though, I could be totally wrong.

True but it is highly likely that no other film this year is better reviewed than this.

And I hate to say it but i think that Paul WS Anderson would be a good director for it, i like what he did with the death race remake.
