1, and it's definitely not me.

Another person I know said he thought the visuals were great but thought the story was weak. I think this is the most retarded thing I've heard this year. Not necessarily because it's not true but because he actually said those words.

a friend of a friend said something like "It's really interesting to look at but I just don't know what people get out of movie experiences like that or why it's so special. It has nothing to do with life."

? I don't get how that is retarded. I've heard many a imdbro say that same thing about it, great visuals, not much of a story, pretty much just a 2 hour car chase. I feel like it holds some truth, as I believe the gut reaction of the average joe to hold a lot of worth these days. I'm kinda perplexed by the perfect grades it has been getting, since that's the most obvious criticism one could give it.

For the record, I finally saw it and liked it just fine, tho I find it pretty overrated. It's kind of one of those movies that begs you to judge it under its own terms, under the 'pure action movie' perspective. Which I guess is forgiving of things that make a generally good movie like fleshed out characters and an elaborate story (I actually found Nicholas Hoult to be the only real character). But even under that perspective, I found the pacing of it all real draggy when it started to slow down, making various waves of actiony sequences feel like a chore, as in I catch myself looking at my watch when it happens or sighing (there was a guy next to me snoring). I'll admit that a lot of the action was more comprehensible than most modern blockbuster types, but then again that's relative to most modern blockbuster types. And I still found myself lost at times. I'm a slow guy, I need things to be on screen for awhile for it to impact me. It also probably didn't help that I saw Chow's Kung Fu Hustle the night before, which I found more successful at implementing cgi with real elaborate action staging.

And who says you have to give up character development to be a well oiled action machine? I put The Road Warrior at the head of the heap in terms of being economical with its character beats so you actually care about nearly every single character. Someone brought up at critforums that in TRW you care about every character who dies, even the minor ones, but in Fury Road, even the big characters who die you sorta shrug at (except for one, you know who I'm talking about).

I will watch it again tho, since I only was able to see it in 2D, which I thought it did it a disservice since a lot of the effects didn't pop at me spectacularly as much as I would have liked.

I voted two. Can't remember who said it, but someone told me their Dad walked out after ten minutes or so. Also, my sister saw it with her husband and told me she didn't get it.

Whiny redpill dipshits are boycotting the movie for being feminist propaganda, it is about women fighting rapists right? The horror.

1. My cousin didn't get it and fell asleep at some point.

If I'm perfectly honest though, I may have not liked the movie as much I thought or said I did. A big part of me was lukewarm about it, and it's not a movie I'm raring to watch again or discuss. It's still a good movie, but I think the hype got to me and made me want to believe I enjoyed the film more.
