How realistic do you think the gun stuff is in mad max? In mad max 1 its like 1984ish. In mad max lore the first gulf war happened in 1973ish and resulted in iran and iraq destroying all the oil fields.
In mad max 1 we see the major force guys armed with .357 revolvers, a Remington model 70, a winchester model 12 and a sawn off doubl barrel. the gang members have a mauser broom handle, a double barrel and a .357 they presumably stole from a cop (its the same gun goose uses due to budget issues) and max and the farmer both have double barrels.
In mad max 2 max has his sawn off shotgun and humungus has a .44 mag with 5 bullets left. max finds some paper cartridges which are both duds and is given some plastic cartridges.
other than the double barrel not having a stock and looking like a fricking b***h to shoot the gun stuff makes sense. its strayla during the 80s after having a fuel shortage for years. they likely had stopped producing plastic shot shells, idk how old the paper duds he finds in 2 are. .357 revolvers, a model 70 and shotguns make sense for cops and considering we see in the opening scene of mad max 1 that it was normal for the cops to shoot the double barrel out the window at criminals while driving having a sawn off (though stockless makes no sense) double barrel makes sense since you can easily use it inna car and without access to automatic fire I'd rather have a shotgun than a manual action. like how wells fargo would have a shotgun to shoot at cowboys from the stage coach

    Not too keen on stralias gun situation in that time other then it wasnt raped after port arthur. I would assume ww1-ww2 era bolt action rifles and hunting shotguns would be pretty common among people from the bush, while the city folk would have what they could steal and crossbows.

    George Miller has been actively derisive to the concept of Mad Max having a coherent timeline or canon since before we were born dude. He would likely call you whatever Australians say instead of "moronic homosexual" for posting this.

      I'm literally basing what I am saying on the opening narration of the road warrior and some signs in mad max 1 you fricking homosexual. mad max 2 literally starts with a narrator saying a war caused a global oil crisis that caused mad max 1. maybe that queer shouldn't have added the opening narration then

        The extent of the context in Mad Max is
        >a few years from now
        Road Warrior opening narration:
        >For reasons long forgotten two mighty warrior tribes went to war and touched off a blaze which engulfed them all. Without fuel they were nothing. They'd built a house of straw. The thundering machines sputtered and stopped. Their leaders talked and talked and talked, but nothing could stem the avalanche. Their world crumbled. Cities exploded — a whirlwind of looting, a firestorm of fear. Men began to feed on men.

            It's not my fault you decided that those deliberately ambiguous details that are irrelevant to the story somehow meant "the first gulf war happened in 1973ish and resulted in iran and iraq destroying all the oil fields," a thing that literally none of the movies ever say or even hint at lmao. It doesn't ever, a single time say when "now" is MM, there's no indication it takes place in ANY time, or frankly any particular place. A few years from NOW is 2027 and the overall story of social and economic decline in rural places slowly turning social and legal institutions into just another gang fighting to survive would be just as pertinent as it was in 1979 when it was made.

            You and people like you need to make up or force a timeline because you have MCU fanwiki brain lol. The guy making these movies has literally been saying for decades "There is no timeline, I actively disregard the concept of continuity between these films." The closest thing to that is how tightly Furiosa ties into Fury Road and even then there are some big discrepancies, because the guy making and writing these movies doesn't and has never cared, because they aren't about that.

                Fury road had a video game that was set as a prequel and gave more insight as to what happened. I remember finding lore scraps about how horrible it smelled when the oceans dried up.

                To be fair, furiosa does open like a decade or so before fury road so it's possible the ocean could've dried up during the Furiosa movie itself.

                Fun fact, max knows the ocean is fricked but he may come across water in the endless salt plains and it's why he has crab trap in the back of his car in fury road.

                But the ocean is dry at the end of beyond thunderdome.
                Which is more likely: that Miller has a coherent, very convoluted internally-consistent timeline of these films, or that he's telling the truth when he explicitly says he doesn't and doesn't care about that stuff?

            This is (extremely obviously) alluding to the US and USSR destroying the world in a nuclear war. Especially when you remember the movie was made in fricking 1979, when that was still a very relevant danger in people’s minds. I have no idea why you would interpret this in any other way.

      No one is "doubting" that, the zoomer moron is hyperfocusing on an offhand comment that the movie could take place "anywhere" to try and distract from the fact that he opened his thread premise with made up "lore" about an Iran-Iraq war that he probably read about on reddit, because he seemingly didn't understand that the "two mighty warrior tribes" referenced in the Road Warrior are fricking clearly the USA and USSR lol.

        I agree with you about there being no organized coherent timeline and all that other lore shit
        But I disagree on the voice over point, it’s an Aussie movie we’re they speak Aussie, the fact that they had to make a Yank version for the seppos to understand doesn’t mean that the Yank version is the original (I’m biased though, I’m an Aussie who has went to multiple different towns/places in my state of Victoria where they filmed the first movie)

          I didn't say it was the original, I said it doesn't matter lol.
          The original strayac**t version is objectively better, I'm more commenting on this fricking moron's clear lack of knowledge of these movies.

          Crazy that I went out into the woods for two days and came back and this thread is still going lol.

          He says this but Max retains his injuries from previous movies and he wrote a comic that explicitly makes Fury Road take place after Beyond Thunderdome even though there would otherwise be nothing to discern their order

          I think saying Miller wrote the Fury Road prequel comics is kind of a stretch. He's credited as a "story" writer but there are additional writers on every single issue. It strikes me as more likely that the comics' creators were basically given Miller's design bible notes and broad-strokes character notes and concept art for Fury Road (would highly recommend the artbooks and making of fury road stuff, it's a wild story on its own) and ran with it. Which is kind of the same thing that happened with the 2015 video game, which is why there's so much overlap between Furiosa and the game despite almost all of it not quite lining up (with notable exceptions like Gastown's concept art being nearly 1:1 across all depictions, which was really cool to see in Furiosa.

          Understand that I'm coming to this thread as someone who has loved these movies for 30 years. And part of what makes the magic work is Miller's casual disregard for "canon" and continuity whenever it suits him.

            This. The fact that the canon is extremely difficult to discern is precisely why speculating on it is so much fun. Comparing and contrasting elements of the different parts of the franchise elevates the entire setting. When Fury Road, the 2015 game, and the comic all dropped, I wound up revisiting the whole franchise four or five times and going full Charlie Day with notes trying to sketch out the new timeline.

            I saw Furiosa at premiere and I can't wait for it to release for home media so I can do the same fricking thing again. The world of Mad Max is incredibly rich and there's so many little elements that mean nothing to normies but become running themes. Some of it is clearly intention, but I think a lot of it comes down to Miller's immense love for the story and his subconscious desire to create a broader, more cohesive setting. As dismissive as I was about his vision in my previous posts, that vision is what created this franchise and made it the cultural touchstone that it is. Even if he'd call me a moron for reading into his works too much, no one in 45 years has come up with a story that's captured me as fully.

    Furiosa had some cool stuff, pretty sure she uses a nugget modified to accept a box mag. Also, the concept of the Bullet Farm is fricking awesome.

    To me, the coolest aspect of mad max is not the guns, but how the lack of guns forced all kind of innovation. They could have really gone the other way with it in the new films, instead they kept coming up with awesome shit like those explosive javelin Thundersticks. And the cars, of course.

    >all this homosexualry about maps and oceans
    the map doesn't necessarily describe EXISTING TERRAIN, it describes what was before. the fact that part of that ocean is now dried up salt plains has got nothing to do with canonicity. in any case its function was to immediately tell the viewer where the film is geographically located. pretending otherwise is just disingenuous homosexualry

    There's some timeline sperging in this thread that irritates me. First and foremost, Mad Max absolutely has to take place at or after 1990 based on the existence of the H&K UMPs in Fury Road. Second, the nukes explicitly dropped after the original film. The first movie takes place during an equivalent Cold War to our world wherein oil reserves are being rapidly depleted and the ecosystem is being poisoned by rampant pollution. A semblance of civilization exists and the MFP is clearly state funded, not a militia, as they still work within the confines of a criminal justice system. The breakdown of society clearly happened between films and the idea is backed up by the opening of Fury Road/Furiosa where news reports talk about these things and show nuclear blast footage.

    Lastly, it's not the fricking Zoomers that came up with these timelines. There has been speculation about it since the original movie and it's adjusted and been discussed non-stop throughout the continuation of the franchise. That discussion is how a collective understanding of an unreliable narrator was formed. Sure, you can take Miller at his word, but we're well beyond death of the author at this point. Art belongs to the viewer, not the artist. His intention is meaningless. What matters is how it is interpreted.

    We know the stories told by the movies are not whole truths - they can't be. There's discrepencies and contradictions that cannot coexist. However, we know some realities of the wasteland. The events of Mad Max are almost guaranteed to be 100% truth because they happened before the collapse and the story could be corroborated. Everything afterward is questionable because they are flatly framed as narrated stories - except for Fury Road, which is told by Max. Because Max told that story, we can assume the broad events are true (Immortan Joe's empire existed, as did Furiosa, the wives, and the War Boys).

      Because Fury Road is somewhat true, we know elements of Furiosa are, as well. Even the existence of Scabrous Scrotus in Furiosa seems to indicate the video game is partially canon - already half accepted because the canon comic books agree on the existence of Hope and Glory.

      Said comics also canonize elements of the pre-Collapse world including that Joe was some kind of Australian Special Forces soldier who came to power around the time the Cold War went hot.

      All of these facts are codified by WB who own the fricking franchise. Once again, Miller's intention is irrelevent. There IS a canon for the franchise and it has been admitted to by the right's holders. It's simply ambiguous what EXACTLY the canon is.

      TL;DR
      have a nice day, I've been a fan of Mad Max for 30 fricking years and I'm not going to apologize for liking the story enough to try to puzzle together how it all works.

    The whole Iran/Iraq war thing came from the script of Mad Max road warrior. The script goes into autistic detail about how the world went into shit, but none of that is told or shown in the film. So the zoomer OP is correct about the whole geopolitical shit and about the oil getting blown up from a middle east war but that’s all from the script of the movie which is never shown or explained in the film, the only thing we know from the film is that gas is more valuable than gold and civilization fell apart because of some conflict.
