Which of the dystopian road warrior's movies do you think is the best, and why?



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

The Road Warrior...It's obvious why....



Mel Gibson in his prime.



I watched either Road Warrior or Beyond Thunderdome as a kid, not sure which one. Didn't really like it, didn't understand a thing. Think it was Thunderdome.

After growing up, I've watched Fury Road and the first one. No contest between them, really, the first one's really... uhh, cheap. It just felt like a standard road movie, in average country roads, rather than the dystopian world the series is supposedly about. You can really tell it was made by few people on a very slim budget. All things considered, it was a pretty decent film, and a weird one too. Fury Road, on the other hand, was awesome. Not voting, though, because I haven't seen what most consider to be the best.

That Tina Turner song was the shit! I wasn’t a big fan of the movies but I’ll vote Thunderdome just for the song.



Fury Road? Seriously?

Here's the complete story:
Woman drives truck from left screen edge to right screen edge.
Then turns truck (because there is nothing there?) around and drives back from right screen edge to left screen edge.
All along this non-story, we get to rewatch each and every stunt we have aleady seen in the previous series movies, with more fire and exploding cars.

Complete waste of time.



I've only seen the first movie, it was ok, but nothing too special. I wish they'd put the other 3 on netflix or some other streaming service so that I can watch them.

Not all movies need to be narrative driven with lots of writing.

Taking it a step further. Not all stories need lots of words to be good.



I've rewatched all 4 with my kids not so long ago.

1st one didn't age as well as I remember it.
Road Warrior was great as ever.
Thunderdome surprised me, I don't remember it being actually quite good, having (IMO) best grey characters narrative of all 4.
Fury Road was even bigger waste of time than the first time I've watched it.

So, for me, Road Warrior, though Thunderdome is, due to greyishness of their characters, close second.
