The Mad Max Action Legacy The idea for the black and white would appear to be a play to harken action movie nostalgia for the franchise and the genre. Of all the versions I've watched, the 4K was the least impressive. Fury Road is rife with activity and fertile with ideas. When I went back to the color version it felt more like a typical Hollywood blockbuster action film. The immense rock formations of the Canyon look like something spit out of the sand by giants, and the sand storm into which Furiosa fearlessly drives the War Rig loses its colorful beauty and acquires the awe-inspiring terror of some Old Testament plague. His reluctance as a hero is what makes him so interesting, so conflicted, and ultimately so heroic.Next
Why would Miller and movie studio Warner Bros. Yes, even the director admitted some shots don't translate very well in black and white especially the dark scenes at night but what you gain with black and white is a complete different feel overall. While the concept seems a little pretentious, the concept gained ground online when a trailer was edited and released on Youtube. I'll start off by saying I love the movie -- it's a fun movie with a lot of great cinematography and over-the-top action scenes. The apps are synchronized with your account at Blu-ray. For this reason alone, the video score has been slightly reduced. Haunted by his turbulent past, Mad Max Tom Hardy, Venom, The Revenant, The Dark Knight Rises believes the best way to survive is to wander alone.Next
Miller set out to make a virtually silent film and the larger-than-life performances are consistent with silent cinema — as is the limewash makeup of the War Boys. Check out some more screen caps by going to page 2. Here's what that means for 'John Wick 4. If you've already sampled clips via YouTube let it be known that shot by shot comparisons are one thing, witnessing the entire film in stark black and white is another. That said, as an alternative version, especially supervised by the director, I'm very excited about it! Why go to such lengths to control your subjects, unless you are afraid? Miller has always been an expert at choreographing and photographing action without sacrificing narrative coherence, but the removal of color from the frame makes Fury Road's complex interplay of people and vehicles even clearer and easier to follow. The cruel killing of Johnny offering him the choice to hack off his foot to save his own life was born of rage, therefore a prime source of such guilt.Next
The acidic yellow hues in the apocalyptic outback Wasteland are normally saved for more frivolous or overwrought big budget stuff like , but Miller was forced to use them because he was making a movie at such a huge scale. The film is also very noisy; apparently this was part of the original effect, but the 4K significantly enhances it and it doesn't look good. What may seem like a gimmick is actually a masterful idea. The parallels with suicide bombers, indoctrinated to believe their death is more meaningful than their life, is clear. My own inclination is toward the 3D presentation, because there are a number of scenes e. In the original Mad Max, his police superiors were jostling to secure him as their Interceptor poster boy, while he was trying to jostle his way out of the service.Next
I will say that the first few chapters were significantly worse than the later chapters and I don't know why. Some of the production design's humorously absurd touches get lost e. They give insights into the origins of the project from storyboards to the production itself. Mad Max: Fury Road is that simple. But what the movie really is about could be seen through an alternative lens. There is a parallel with Max here. Few action movie franchise reboots have enjoyed as much success as the.Next
They are escaping a citadel tyrannized by the Immortan Joe Hugh Keays-Byrne , from whom something irreplaceable has been taken. From the original we have a stolen boot, a hissing bad guy, and a shotgun-wielding old lady. In this moment he is reborn in the eyes of Furiosa: not only was he willing to sacrifice himself for her quest, he also chose to come back. The look is less successful when the pieces start to move and the editing hastens. The elaborate carvings and contraptions of The Citadel acquire the haunting quality of an abstract painting, and the painted and tattooed War Boys, young and old, seem like aliens from another realm.
And Max is the archetypal lone wanderer. Rather than merely hoping, Max is saying, take action. For anyone who already owns any of the previous versions of Fury Road, the choice is harder. Night scenes are borderline unwatchable. Something about black and white, the way it stills it, makes it a little bit more abstract, something about losing some of the information and color makes it somehow more iconic. Max is himself a mythic figure see how the War Boy takes his V8 from the revered tree of steering wheels — but the difference is that his myth is not of his own making.Next
Per lui il film sarebbe stato perfetto in bianco e nero. During that astonishing shot of the exploding tanker, as Max clings desperately and hilariously to a swaying pole, my eyes were left yearning. Immortan Joe's deformities lose some of their repugnance without color, but Joe himself gains in threat and stature. The wasteland overlord Immortan Joe Hugh Keays-Byrne controls the water that sustains his people. Redemption begins with forgiveness of the self. In fact, parts even look worse.Next
