Not really much you can do against the Rock anyway.   awesome, for real

It's crazy how much money his movies have made.  His early comedy/family movies didn't work at all.  Embracing what made him famous in the WWE, his physicality and charm, and doing more action type roles was the best decision he ever made.

The best decision he ever made was doing Fast and Furious movies. Hercules and G.I. Joe: Retaliation didn't exactly set the box office on fire.

Umm...not really.  GI Joe made over $375 million and Hercules made over $240 million.

The Rock has been labeled the "Franchise Saver" as he's boosted almost everything he's ever been added in to.

Yes, fortunately the International box office can even help clunkers like Battleship, After Earth, John Carter, Lone Ranger, the Green Hornet, Grown Ups 2, and the Robocop reboot get into the 200-300 million range.

Even without the international numbers, the GI Joe movie almost made back its budget as did Herc.

I'm happy to see that MM is over 130mil past its budget with this weekend's numbers. Strong showing even in its 3rd week and you can argue it split second with PP2 and Tommorow land since those were within a 644k range of each other at 14.1 to 14.8 million.

I went to a theatre in Amarillo a few days ago and they were still giving away MM shwag posters.  The hype and appreciation for this movie is definitely there post initial release; I'm glad.  Considering this is one of the most dense summer movie seasons I can remember, they're doing well.

I've actually started to look for collectibles but all I'm finding is signed posters.  I'd really like some props from this film but I'll assume they've got everything locked up in a warehouse ala Paramount for use in further movies.

Watch Junkie XL create the drums:

He has a whole series. Really interesting if you are interested in the scoring process.

That's just made my morning. I'm on a real percussion kick lately; I knew Holkenborg did all the drums himself but the way he did them I didn't know. Obviously it sounds like a hundred drummers on timps/surdos/toms etc but the idea of recording 500 different drums at varying tunings to such an incredible sample clarity and effectively designing each note in CuBase is staggering. No wonder it took him over a year to put the soundtrack together.

Though now I want a blu-ray with all those samples on so I can play with them...

In the mean time, Mondo has some pretty sweet posters. They're running at timed exclusive on this instead of their normal "storm the gates and miss out" method.

After watching the movie it seems like the difference between R rated and PG13 would have been extremely small while making a huge difference at the box office.  This wasn't like Deadpool going all out with the blood and violence, maybe just toning down the wet tshirt contest and face ripping would have been enough.

As a counter arguement, the film was awesome and made money. I'm glad they didn't tone it down.

Yeah, I just looked at the box office. It has made back its production budget just on US box office receipts alone and over twice its budget if you factor in international. There was no reason to compromise on the R-rating - it wouldn't have served the story and the movie made bank anyway.

My wife never fully watches movies at home - like NEVER.  She always has her laptop open or a tablet reading something else.  15 minutes in I look over and see the laptop closed and her watching intently, and I was giving her a "WTF???" look and she didn't even notice.

All of those complaints about feminist injection? True. But I'm shallow enough to enjoy action and car crashes.

Also, Mad Max is a superfluous clown character. There's no point to him anymore. Which is a shame. It could've been all Furiosa and gone full retard with feminism, and I still would've been entertained.


The biggest lull is when they don't find the Oasis and there aren't any car crashes. And I get a little exposition on the setting of Mad Max and old women. Which sucks. I don't care. This is why Thunderdome sucked.


Last 15 minutes of Road Warrior is still better.

I was simply entertained. I don't understand the complaints about feminism. All I care about is a product. That's the problem with games. If they're going to shoehorn their bullshit, they could at least make good products. Instead we get shit.

I never said it was. I said Mad Max seemed superfluous and I could have enjoyed a story that was just Furiosa. It seems like the Furiosa story was the main one. Doesn't sound like shoehorning to me.... when it's the main basis. It's barely a Mad Max movie. And I'm fine with that. It had car crashes.


I said games have shoehorned things. Not this.


Other than that, the whole Fedora thing is for guilt ridden white dudes. Leave me out of it.

Your original post had a few lines in it that seemed particularly fedory, especially the opening line and the retard/feminism bit. But, I'm apparently reading into it. So be it.

Cool. I don't recognize your name.. I've been gone for 3 years or so, so I'm just having fun posting whatever meets my eye. In any case, some must remember me enough to laugh at this.

Only point is that I was entertained and tried to ignore the dumb shit. I think it's a shame that Max turned into a joke character.
