    Going on a preemptive strike for the h8errrsss that don't realize Mad Max deserves to be here. Here are a couple of media outlets that put the film in their Top 10 - as you can see, many of them have it in their top 5, and a few at No. 1.

    I love Inception, and Nolan, but he was inspired heavily by Paprika. Miller built on and perfected a story he created.

    Wait, you've only seen Mad Max in Black and White? I believe the BW was only a Blu-ray release feature.

    It's an actual edition, which I still keep meaning to buy, the Black and Chrome edition. I kept calling it the Blood and Chrome edition, but that was a Battlestar Galactica movie lol. I hear it's awesome in black and white and how Miller originally envisioned the movies, but the studios didn't want to take the risk. The colour version is fucking gorgeous. The black and white version must be a very different experience.

    Mad Max is absolutely stunning in black & white. It's something I really want to watch in 4K.

    Yup. Ideally it woulda been a Mad Max vs Parasite finale, but a dub is a dub.

    I correctly predicted this final. I just knew it would come down to these two films if they didn't cross paths in the previous rounds.

    These are both great films, but I think the out of the box plot and slick presentation edges it just past Fury Road. Close though real close.
    The Houston Astros cheated Major League Baseball from 2017-18!!!!

    They cheated their way to a couple of League Championships & a World Series!!!!

    Is that how we teach our kids to play the game now?????
