    After a long time in the making, Comic-Con has given us a first proper taste of Mad Max: Fury Road, George Miller's fourth Mad Max film, and first to not have Mel Gibson in the iconic post-apocalyptic role. It looks suitably dusty and gritty, though I just can't reconcile Tom Hardy's face with Max's character. Without further ado, here's the trailer:

    I have a terrifying feeling that this will be extremely bad.

    Doesn't Gibson make some kind of cameo?

    This is what happens when The Road Warrior meets shitty modern-day marketing, music, cinematography, and cultural propaganda.

    Woah there, hoss, wait for the movie to be released. You can't tell jack from a two-and-a-half minute trailer.

    That said, though, it looks just fine to me.

    I've been looking forward to this for so long... and the first thing they do is destroy his car in the trailer? Is this a joke? Then we see a bunch of explosions, crazy people and... is that Khaleesi and her handmaids?

    I have a bad feeling about this.

    It's scary when they release a trailer that looks like it just might contain ~all the reasons to see the film... that means they are looking to make their money the first weekend of release, and run with it.

    You say that, but I would guess that you never experienced shitty 1980s marketing, music, cinematography, and cultural propaganda first-hand. Mad Max went from cheesy anti-hero revenge flick to cheesy MTV tie-in before we got to this point.

    Anyway, this definitely got my attention. It looks interesting.

    Yeah, uh, F3 wasn't as bad as the die-hards made it out to be. That may be an unpopular opinion, but there ya go.

    That would be relative, no?

    I would say that it was pretty much as predicted; a shallow Swiss-cheese plot, excellent 3d landscaping, 3rd grade creative writing, almost zero choice & consequence ~aside from set-piece plot-points... and just about the worst turn based strategic RPG that I've seen to date. That about sums it up for FO3 ~if you omit that it was essentially Oblivion with a cosmetic make-over.

    On its own merits, it's not a bad game, and it has very impressive points to it... but the most damning bit is that it is almost entirely unrelated to the series excepting the use of a few names and the mascot.

    ** I 'm hoping that Fury Road can't have the same problem ~it shouldn't... seeing as it's the same guy making it, but who really knows, we'll have to see it.

    To each their own. You said it's relative, right? Well, then, relatively speaking, it's NOT AS BAD AS YOU ARE MAKING IT OUT TO BE.

    Or am I wrong for having a differing opinion? Hey, I liked it. Go ahead and feel superior just because you didn't.

    Hang on.. you said "turn based strategic RPG".

    Okay, I see what you're doing. I admit, you almost had me.

    Sorry, I thought you were trolling. Because if you think Fallout 3 was a "turn's-based strategic RPG", you're either a troll or you don't know what a turn's based strategic RPG actually is.

    "It's scary when they release a trailer that looks like it just might contain ~all the reasons to see the film... that means they are looking to make their money the first weekend of release, and run with it."

    I noticed that, too, actually. Pretty long trailer, and I was wondering if there is any action sequence that isn't already in there. I'm trying not to pass judgement on it already, but I will say that one thing I liked about Mad Max was the quirkiness, and I get the feeling there won't be much of that. Also, it's a shame Gibson isn't starring. He may be crazy, but he's still Mad Max to me. I wouldn't have minded seeing that character at an older age, and they could have thrown in a young, attractive co-star to meet their Hollywood quota of young, attractive people.

    Still, the action looks cool. But these days, I get my action fix from games, so it's not why I go to see movies...
