Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome is *FINALLY* out on Blu-Ray. This was my favorite movie for a good few years there, until Lost Boys came out. The second half of the movie kinda falls apart, granted, but the first half? Man, that’s the perfect post-apocalyptic movie right there. Masterblaster, Auntie Entity, Ironbar, and Bartertown itself. This is one of those movies that had the lines that we screamed at each other all summer long and, to this day, has imagery that sticks around.
Now, my main complaint about the film is that while the plot might require Thunderdome showing up in the first half of the film and not really play in the second half (thus the “beyond”), the best parts of the film involve Bartertown, Thunderdome, and the interactions with what passes for civilization.
Then again, you really can’t have a wasteland car battle in town.
As part of my getting ready for Fury Road, I’ve picked this up and am looking forward to subjecting Maribou to it. (“Is that why you ask me who runs Bartertown all the time?” “Yes. Yes it is.”)
Here’s the trailer for Fury Road and I’m getting excited already.
So… what are you reading and/or watching?
