Your Halloween Costume Will Never Be As Amazing As This Mad Max Power Wheels

Some people think Halloween isn’t as fun with kids because you can’t spend all night partying.

8-bit video game version of Mad Max: Fury Road is just as unbelievably fun

Oh my god. Since Mad Max: Fury Road was essentially just a linear car chase scene that went in one direction and then turned around and went back in the other direction, can you imagine how perfect a side scrolling video game it would make? Add all the crazy vehicles and the weapons and Furiosa and it would be the… »10/15/15 9:47am10/15/15 9:47am

The Aussie Mad Max Is So Much Better Than The Lame U.S. Dubbed Version

You may not realize this, but the Mad Max you grew up watching was likely the American-dubbed version and not the Aussie original. At the Jalopnik Film Festival later this month in Los Angeles we’ll be presenting the Aussie version. Just watch these two clips and you’ll see why. »9/09/15 3:31pm9/09/15 3:31pm

Mad Max: The Kotaku Review

A little more than 10 years ago, not long after I quit my job to become a freelance writer, a colleague warned me that sometimes the work could be grueling and unrewarding. “I want to talk to you when you’re writing a story only for money,” he said. It took a decade, but I finally found that assignment: reviewing Mad… »9/01/15 2:50pm9/01/15 2:50pm

Why Platinum Will Be Worth More Than Gold In An Automobile Dystopia

We know that in a Mad Max type of dystopia, people will need “guzzoline,” water, and a way to avoid poisons. The good news? Platinum can, and currently does, provide all three of those. Here’s why people will be killing each other for jewelry after the collapse of civilization. »6/05/15 5:55pm6/05/15 5:55pm

Mad Max: Fury Road without the special effects is still awesome

Most movies, especially big blockbuster action movies, look embarrassingly awkward when you strip away the CGI and special effects and expose it in real life. It’s because so much is fake these days! Not Mad Max: Fury Road though. That movie’s action sequences still look so bad ass in real life. Check it out. »6/05/15 3:07pm6/05/15 3:07pm

Mad Max: Fury Road Is An Astonishing Work Of Art

You don’t realize just how crappy most action movies are, until you see something like Mad Max: Fury Road — a movie in which there are no “action scenes” because the action pretty much never stops. And the film’s constant sense of violent motion is in the service of incredible imagery and transcendant moments. »5/15/15 11:30am5/15/15 11:30am

Mad Max: Fury Road Is Glorious, Thrilling, Overwhelming Lunacy

1. I quit smoking more than four years ago, but nothing—not a night full of drinks, not a table full of smokers, not a gasoline IV—has made me want a cigarette more than Mad Max: Fury Road did. You leave the theater still shaking, everything still pumping and throbbing, a treadmill stopping on a dime and sending you… »5/14/15 11:59am5/14/15 11:59am
