Mad Max/George Miller movie club?

Any interest in posts on the first three Mad Max films in the wake of Fury Road? Or, more broadly, all the varied films of George Miller?

I'd participate. I've only seen Road Warrior and Fury Road so would be a nice excuse to see the rest of the Mad Max films, and anything else of Miller's which looks interesting.

I'm down. Especially for Babe: Pig in the City!

Maybe once a week then?

Also: I'd assume we'd talk about the film in the context of the others. So, in the thread for Mad Max, I imagine there will be a lot of compare and contrast with Road Warrior, Beyond Thunderdome, and Fury Road, and, to a lesser extent, with his other movies, too. Does that sound good?

Hell to the yes!

Okay. I'll post the first thread within the next few days.

We now have a club page! Thanks to cortex, pb, et al rolling out new FanFare features.

I've added a list of events to the club page. Three questions:
1) Do we want to try to get our hands on a copy of 40,000 Years of Dreaming, Miller's documentary about film? It seems not to be easily available for streaming.

2) Do we want a separate new thread for Fury Road once we've finished the other films?

3) Is chronological order the preferred viewing order?

No Twilight Zone?

Also both Babe Films were his. I guess he's good with pigs - see also Thunderdome.

He didn't direct the first Babe, though he was involved. I'm just going by the list of his director credits on IMDb.

Huh. Writer only. I stand corrected.

Hey y'all. I was traveling this weekend and didn't have Internet access, so the next film hasn't been posted. Apologies. I'll post as soon as I can.

Nah, it's cool, you can still ride eternal.
