Not a Mad Max fan... which is odd because I liked playing borderlands; but I will watch any movie with Charlize in it... even Monster.

Seems more like a live-action version of Car Wars to me, rather than Borderlands.  Car Wars > Boderlands.

I loved Car Wars. Still can't quite believe that nobody ever made a *decent* PC game from it.

Very true, IS-76 was one of those little-known gems, great game that never got much attention. The car designing process was also echoed for me in Eve's ship fitting.

As to the film, well I treat trailers in the same way that I am resolved to treat early access games from now on: watch & wait.

Interstate 76, there's something I haven't thought about in a long time. It had its flaws, but it was pretty good.

Darkwind is the closest thing to Car Wars I have ever seen. It is flawed, but it definitely scratches that itch.

I am in the minority- I wasn't terribly excited by the trailer. I may be officially too old for big budget action sequences. There was no substance to it- just lots of explosions. Meh.

Autoduel was loads of fun. This is a serious nostalgia call, however. Granted, I had a copy that a friend gave me...I didn't have the map that came with it, so navigating city to city was a bitch. I used to follow one wall until I found my way.

I just picked up the Car Wars box at my local comic shop. There's nifty 20 buck starter version. I had forgotten how fiddly the rules are, in particular when you have an almost-9-year-old who wants to play, but wants simpler rules.

I traded in my fun blog for several legal blogs. Or, "blawgs," as the cutesy attorney blawgosphere likes to call 'em.

Stopped the trailer halfway through because I know I want to see it and I really want to see it fresh.

I'm sure there's plenty of nerd whining folks can manage in between now and the opening though. "Oh, it's not going to be R enough for me", "Oh, those dust storms don't seem very realistic", etc.

A final trailer has been released for this but I'm not linking it because of the previous post and you're going to have to work for it if you want to see more.

Also, for all those who were worried about it being PG-13, fret no more. It's rated R. Curiously, it doesn't seem to have been rated in the UK which is surprising given it's being released in 2 weeks.

As an aside, I noticed that the BBFC have recently reclassified the original '79 Mad Max and now rated it 15 in the UK (US PG-13 sits between UK 12A and 15).  Not only that, but the given running time is 93m3s which is the longest version to be passed. Even in 79 the running time was 90m 46s and that was passed cut to get an X rating. Video releases from 86 onwards got an 18 rating and were cut to 88m 54s.

Mad Max 2 has also been reclassified down from an 18 to a 15 as well.  DRILLING AND MANLINESS

According to Variety Edgar Wright went to the premier and he'd already seen the film two other times.

You can't have a proper war without drums.
Also in that trailer... an homage to the "thunderdome."  Only it looks like a slave's quarters to me, or some kind of play area.  Not sure.

I read a review hinting at the damned thing being the Citizen Kane of the genre.  Really?  Wtf am I about to go see?   ACK!     The gravitas is so strong that I'm tempted to drive 1+ hrs to the closest IMAX.  I wanna say the last time I saw this happen was the Matrix?  Yah, it might have been that long.  Definitely for post-apoc movies obviously.

edit:  I read they really didn't even use a traditional script for this movie; just a storyboard that kind of evolved as the movie was being made.  It was essentially one big scene and none of the actors really could tell wtf was even going on contextually.
