I recently saw the newest rendition of Mad Max: Fury Road, and though it isn't necessary, I highly recommend that anyone who watches this in theatres pay for the IMAX/3D upgrade. Some movies are made specifically for this technology - and this is one of them. To most, the excitement from souped up post-apocolypic car chases is enough for sensory overload. However, when first entering this movie I wasn't expecting to reflect so much on the significant contrast from current society. This movie gave the perspective of how the world could possibly function, at its worst, if say there were a sudden lack of order and resources. To say the least, people are very capable of resorting back to animalistic instincts. Granted, the film was incredibly dramatized and some scenes were ridiculously far-fetched to set the atmosphere, the underlying constructs of a tyrannical power versus the helpless masses was easy to recognize.
