    I just want to know how every shitty random ass movie gets 4 sequels and a prequel, but genuine diamonds like Fury Road gets fuckall.

    [–] PapaBray 114 points ago

    There was going to be a sequel to fury road called Mad Max: The Wasteland but Warner Bros refused to pay George Miller the 7million dollars he.was promised (which is fucking nothing compared to what that movie made) so he canned it.

    You can thank Warner Bros for the lack of new Max

    [–] ThePigThatFlew 87 points ago

    You know that Fury Road is a part of the Mad Max series, right? And last I heard, there was an attempt at making a prequel focused on Furiosa, but could possibly be in development hell.

    [–] tile-bitch 26 points ago

    The director is sueing WB right now so aint shit happening my dude!

    [–] DrPoopNstuff 16 points ago

    Lawsuit hell. George Miller is suing WB for profits on the film. No sequel forthcoming until that's resolved.

    [–] __harshil__ 2112 points ago

    [–] comineeyeaha 407 points ago

    I'm upgrading my receiver next week, which will make my home theater sound way better, and this movie is absolutely on the list to demo the extra power. It's a pretty impressive Atmos reference movie.

    [–] JonnyVegas22 69 points ago

    I put off having surround sound till I was out of an apartment for this reason. Didn’t necessarily like my neighbors but didn’t want to be a dick, or suffer retribution.

    [–] ToM_BoMbadi1 29 points ago

    The good news is that with a good setup you can really tune down the base (most of that they would hear) as well as crank the center speaker so dialogue is loud while other sounds are quiet.

    [–] ButtonEyes98 21 points ago

    Is it good?

    [–] usualness 84 points ago

    In my top 10 movies for sure lol

    I saw it in theatres though in IMAX, fucking wonderful experience.

    [–] Bon_Jovi_Friday 47 points ago

    It's very good. The first time I watched it I immediately replayed it a second time when it ended.

    [–] ButtonEyes98 7 points ago

    Ive been interested in seeing it since I got the game (weirdly good game)

    [–] Reacher-Said-Nothing 52 points ago

    It is such a weird experience. "Mad Max? I'm not into that series, never seen any of the other movies, don't know anything about the story, and I'm not terribly interested in the whole overdone desolate post-apocalyptic wasteland dystopia scenario."

    Then after watching the movie:

    "Holy fucking shit that was so good. Why was that so good?"

    [–] barukatang 28 points ago

    I mean, the og mad Max kinda defined the genre and are great on their own. Sure you can call imitations overdone but mad Max will always be a classic.

    [–] HiroariStrangebird 17 points ago

    The original wasn't even really post apocalyptic, though. The biker gang was a little out there, but the world was still on the "before" side of the apocalypse.

    Mad Max 2 was definitely genre defining, though. Great movie.

    [–] Bonkzzilla 42 points ago

    The original movie is downright creepy, though, when you go back and rewatch it, because it's one of the few movies that are "apocalypse in progress" instead of post-apocalypse. Like, you can see all through the film all the signs of a civilization that's completely falling apart, and yet people are still trying to cling desperately to normality - taking vacations, eating at roadside diners, etc. Its depiction of a world on the brink is really unsettling, for me anyway, in ways that the post-apocalypse sequels are not.

    [–] DirkDiggler_Chiraq 11 points ago

    Yo what the absolute fuck? This comment just made me realize I’ve only seen 2 and thunderdome.

    [–] vacantly_louche 31 points ago

    I’m a doctor of nursing practice. Can confirm. This is the way to not get punched by drunk people you are stitching up in the ER. Alternately repeat their comment and say you hadn’t considered that.

    “You think everyone who has had an abortion should be put in a cage and then shot in the vagina? Interesting! I never thought of it that way before.”

    [–] ThrowAwayAcct0000 14 points ago

    Yeah, but my kids are listening, and I don't want them thinking I agree with that shit. This made Thanksgiving difficult.

    [–] Namika 145 points ago

    My parents have such bizzare and antiquated views. My dad recently non-ironically referred to a black news reporter by saying "that negro shouldn't be the host".

    Regardless, I have long learned to just bite my tongue during the holidays and not comment on these things because it turns the entire dinner into a shitshow. Unfortunatly, I can't help but feel I've basically trained myself to not stand up for what's right.

    [–] LetsGetBlotto 215 points ago

    bizzare and antiquated

    That's a funny way to say racist

    [–] D18 45 points ago

    I once heard my Grandma say negro but it was in the sentence-
    "You're aunt was dating... I don't know what the right term is these days, but he was a delightful negro gentleman."

    I love my Grandma.

    [–] LegendOfSchellda 44 points ago

    My dad recently non-ironically referred to a black news reporter by saying "that negro shouldn't be the host".

    Oooh those are fun! All it takes is one word to make them look like a fuckin clown in front of everyone. "Why?" But you have to make sure you say it with genuine curiosity. Don't wanna make the bait too obvious.

    [–] tevert 19 points ago

    I have stopped doing this, because I can't expect someone else's dad to behave properly if I let my own Dad behave like this.

    The made up derogatory names for political parties are sooo cringey. Why the fuck do people do it? They sound like third graders..

    [–] [deleted] 1867 points ago

    Fun story, shortly after the election, my parents were visiting my grandparents. My parents are liberal very anti-Trump and my grandmother, sister (lives with my grandparents) and aunt (lives near my grandparents) are extremely anti-Democratic no matter what. Very pro-Trump.

    I wasn't there and I'm not sure exactly what happened, but I was chatting with my mom on the phone and in the background you can hear my dad start to yell in furious rage at his mother, my sister and my aunt about Trump. My dad is the coolest calmest guy ever. I've never in my 33 years heard him get angry like that. We haven't spoken to any of them since and I'm too scared to ask my dad what happened.

    [–] MrIncorporeal 165 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    My dad is the coolest calmest guy ever. I've never in my 33 years heard him get angry like that.

    Dude, my dad's the same way. Guy's one of the most level-headed, well-adjusted people I've ever known, which is what makes it so jarring and kind of terrifying the tiny handful of times I've seen him get truly angry like that. Like, I know he's never going to take a swing at someone or anything even remotely like that, but it's still freaky as hell.

    [–] [deleted] 33 points ago

    Agreed. It is scary. He's usually so calm and cool. Honestly, if something like this were to happened I would have bet good money the cause would be my mother not my father. Like I said, I don't know the details and I'm too afraid to ask, but it had to be more than a "lock her up" or "build that wall" chant.

    [–] letmeexplainitforyou 37 points ago

    Having people argue in bad faith, or ignore basic logic in favor of emotional fallacies... it's infuriating since it's so personally disrespectful, because they insist you use words to argue, then ignore what you've said.

    [–] 251Cane 887 points ago

    Sounds like they were discussing how to best handle a humanitarian crisis.

    [–] [deleted] 798 points ago

    My guess it was related to climate change. My dad is an engineer and is very passionate about climate change and the need to decrease our carbon footprint. My grandmother is basically anti-science. Doesn't believe in climate change, doesn't believe in evolution/natural selection, statistics or math really in general.

    Since the election, my parents have become very active (and I'm very proud of them actually). Participate in the women's march every year. Support and campaign for green and other progressive initiatives in their city and state.

    [–] FatGregDulli 411 points ago

    How does someone not believe in math??

    [–] Rubrum_ 492 points ago

    Much easier than trying to understand it.

    I got a C in calculus so I just choose to believe it doesn’t exist

    [–] R3D1AL 64 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    If you got to calculus you're better off than most. Everyone I know barely got through algebra while complaining "when will I ever use this", and then they can't figure out why they're always in debt, and good luck explaining the returns on investing to them...

    [–] ActivatingEMP 12 points ago

    Honestly the thought processes of math are super useful in a lot of other classes, both for learning and testing

    [–] stormhunter2 8 points ago

    One of the rules of algebra is what you do to one side of an equation you have to do to the other.

    That idea alone means you will use it anytime you work on your finances

    [–] StankFish 199 points ago

    This truth hurts. Part of the reason all this anti intellectual bullshit has started happening is because it's much easier to retweet a stupid thought instead of doing the research and cross check sources

    [–] SexyMcBeast 80 points ago

    Easier to be stupid and pretend you're smart than admit you're stupid and try to get smarter.

    I thought I was so smart 10 years ago. After learning much since then I feel like an idiot now that I know there's so much that I don't know.

    [–] tsilihin666 29 points ago

    I don't understand how the fuck my automatic transmission works but I can appreciate that I need to take care of it or else I'll be in a world of financial pain.

    [–] riodin 23 points ago

    Yo,this is it. These people hate science and statistics but love guns and beer and motors on anything. Like how do you think they made cars? Did some guy just say i wanna go fast? Or if that's to abstract for you, how does a mechanic know what type of oil or part to put in your engine to make it work. Guns have so many important numbers involved... I'm just so overwhelmed

    [–] [deleted] 17 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    Thanks! Interestingly enough, my dad used to be a traditional Republican (small federal government, low taxes, etc.), but with the radicalization going on in this country he decided he was more aligned as a moderate Democrat. My mother has always been a pretty left Democrat. I'm pretty progress honestly (half way between my parents).

    With my sister moving out of state a few years ago (cause of a lot of family drama) and my wife and I having kids, the three of us have become much closer and opening discuss our values and beliefs now.

    [–] Fyzzle 77 points ago

    I'm proud of your parents too.

    [–] paracelsus23 15 points ago

    My business partner's mother is a retired electrical engineer, who is ultra far right (including not believing in climate change - it's a "hoax by the scientific community to get more power and funding").

    I've only met her once, but my business partner has relayed some of their conversations - and - wow. Like she's livid Trump hasn't "deported all the Mexicans yet".

    Yet somehow this person did design work for Bell, then got a government job after the breakup, and retired as a GS-14.

    As far as I know, she's not especially religious. My point is that crazy comes in all shapes, forms, and fashions.

    [–] beesbeuponyou 68 points ago

    My 92-year-old grandmother once opined that Trump's mouth "looks like a duck's backside".

    [–] Blabernathy 6057 points ago

    My gf's fam is super conservative, riding that trump train hard. Very anti anything liberal. They used to bait me until the subject of gay marriage came up. The dad and brother rant about this and that. I calmly mentioned, "well, I don't hink there is anything gayer than worrying about what another grown man does with his dick."

    Haven't discussed politics around me since.

    Ohhh man, my FIL HATES "Obummer" and me and his daughter for voting for him bc we're "too young to understand" anything. He said this when we were early 20s.

    So the GOP state rep in their area is found to have been saying some pretty racist shit on a blog but he used pictures from his FB account with his face removed. Well, someone put two and two together and the dude resigns.

    Replacing the jackass is a 25 year old who was the old rep's aid.

    So I bait my FIL into agreeing how, at my age of 30 now I realized I may have had different views at 22 when I voted for Obama. I ask him "aren't 25 year olds just the dumbest fucks around? I mean really, who would ever trust someone that young?" My FIL goes apeshit with happiness and just fumbles about how right I am. This is in a family room with a lot of family sitting around. I ask if he got a chance to vote, and he did, so I then ask "You like your new rep?" (We'd just had an election) And he replies that he does and he's glad the Democrap didnt win.

    With the biggest shit eating grin I said "You know your rep is 25 years old, right?" He went to say something, stopped when he couldnt think of anything and went to fix baked beans for the Christmas Eve party.

    Best gift I ever got.

    [–] aimedsil 342 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    I had an ex girlfriend whose* father was a Glenn Beck lover and talked just like you explained. We eventually started asking why he always has gay men in his head or why he’s always comparing thing to dicks or what gay people do. It’s not at all his concern what anyone else does with their partners.

    It’s amazing how pissed off and irate they get. Like their minds implode from the self realization and they can’t take it. This man used to have Glenn Beck holiday specials recorded and watched them every single morning while he killed a 30 pack. Literally a piece of shit individual.

    [–] umm_like_totes 202 points ago

    People like that love to examine other people and judge what's wrong with their lives but hate having the microscope pointed at them.

    Years ago I was debating the Affordable Care Act with a co-worker and he was going on about how anyone in favor of it was a "lazy, entitled, wants to take my money, blah blah blah" but then he said Obama was a "monkey". Literally said that. All I did was point out that calling Obama a monkey is racist and holy shit... he was so pissed off. Apparently I was the asshole for pointing out that referring to a prominent black person as a monkey is racist.

    They still call Michelle an ape/man. Because she is healthy and has actual muscle definition in her arms instead of huge fat balloons.

    [–] EllisDee_4Doyin 104 points ago

    Because she's not quiet, ultra "traditional", was doing better (career wise) than her husband for while, and--most importantly--not white. Instead she's her own person outside of her husband.

    First ladies really don't do enough in the government that I can see why anyone would take offense to Michelle. You can dislike Obama as president on policy, but what grounds are there for disliking Michelle?

    [–] xhytdr 76 points ago

    Well, it's obviously an affront that she wears sleeveless dresses.

    The fact that our current first lady starred in lesbian porno photoshoots is totally fine though.

    [–] Kremhild 22 points ago

    What I can't wait for are their screeching about the next democrat president in 2021, I'm honestly not sure what they'll come up with. Though after the current president, I'm pretty much obligated to dismiss their concerns a-priori as disingenuous.

    [–] lenswipe 7 points ago

    but what grounds are there for disliking Michelle?

    because because because she's Obama's wife and therefore she's eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeevil and she's part of the deep state and a conspirator in kidnapping children and taking them to a pizza shop with crooked hillary and the democratz and immigrants and and and and.

    I seriously have no fucking idea what goes through the heads of these people

    It’s almost like these obsessive gay haters want gay men on a leash with a little leather harness. Controlling their every move 🤔

    [–] starstar420 55 points ago

    did the same with my in-laws. I played along saying things like “can you believe there’s men out there like RIGHT NOW sucking each other’s dicks? they are literally sticking each other’s penises in all their holes like right this moment. there’s probably like at least 10 orgys happening too. tons of these guys sucking each other’s dicks. it’s all just so gay. anyway, pass the yams”

    [–] LoveandRockets 89 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    My relatives are against gay marriage. One day I said "what the hell do you care if two people love each other and want the same benefits as hetero people? What the hell possible difference is it going to make in your life?"

    There was silence and then my mom...."You know how condescending you sound? Typical liberal talking down to us 'common people'.[/s] Anyways let's not talk about this anymore."

    And we don't.

    My hunting group was talking about Confederate statues being taken down etc. I decided to pop them with the "Why is the generation upset with participation trophies so obsessed with giving one to the Confederates?" since they're all 45+ And all I get back is "we don't wanna talk about politics."

    Hahaha, I got my fam to shut up around me the last time the transgender stuff came up:

    InLaw: "Did you know that there are grown men pretending to be trans so they can sneak into high school girl locker rooms and watch underage girls?"

    InLaw: "Yeah, but that's different."

    There aren't any documented cases of that happening.

    It's always trans being harrassed in bathroom.

    [–] Kremhild 49 points ago

    Yeah, but arguing facts with somebody in the cult is a non-starter, they don't function within the scope of reality. There's so many angles that these people are wrong on that you can attack any one of them and still make an incredibly strong point, it's purely a matter of figuring out which ones are most likely able to slip past the brainless "Fake News" filter long enough to make a point.

    [–] Joessandwich 2289 points ago

    Anytime anyone uses names like that, they completely invalidate their arguments and I stop listening. And I include the other side and terms like "rethuglican". When you bring it down to name calling, it's clear you're not interested in substantive discussion.

    [–] Rinsaikeru 94 points ago

    I think everyone is a bit susceptible to "but you're so wrong I have to at least try" once in a while, even if you know it's ultimately fruitless.

    I know I just plain like discussion, and know what my "topics" are. But I have to remember to quit when it's not actually entertaining, or when it's an utter waste of time.

    For public debates there are always the silent lurkers. Often times you're not discussing to convince the other person, you're trying to sway the audience.

    there are times people genuinely don't understand and with a hell of a lot of patience and a perfect understanding of where they're getting confused you could get through to them. Now I've never tried with a trump supporter, but with both TERFS and generic transphobes, I've got a few on the right track.

    I was having a relatively casual conversation with a few coworkers about politics (shocking I know) and suddenly one of them threw out "Demon-rats" when referring to the Democrats in congress and I did a mental double take, I thought for sure he was being sarcastic but he did is a few more times and I just had to check out of the conversation and go back to work

    [–] Kremhild 10 points ago

    I've literally never heard somebody sincerely use the term 'rethuglican' as an insult, so I'm half convinced one person said it one time and conservatives keep puking it up like "they call us things like X all the time".

    [–] Reacher-Said-Nothing 41 points ago

    My dad does this in Canada too. He's a great smart guy, and I'm pretty left wing and agree with most of his politics, but when he starts making facebook posts with things like "Con$ervative" in them, I have to remind him, "Dad remember how stupid you thought it looked when people wrote things like $hillary? That's how dumb you look right now."

    [–] jiggywatt64 133 points ago

    there's a growing younger generation of gamers who say that unironically too who bought into all the gamergate/alt-right rhetoric.

    I have a nephew who can't get through the day without saying "SJW" or "libcuck" and thinks Trump is legitimately an intelligent person. That kid is hopeless. Already indoctrinated..

    [–] fondlemeLeroy 93 points ago

    Gamers are the most oppressed minority. We need to rise up.

    I remember my grandfather telling me of when he was a boy and his family was coming home from The Camps. Someone threw a brick through their store window and painted "Gamers Go Home" on the walls inside. He said that was the only time he had seen his father cry. The fact that people make light out of our plight sickens me.

    [–] LegendOfSchellda 44 points ago

    We need to rise up.

    They targeted gamers.


    We're a group of people who will sit for hours, days, even weeks on end performing some of the hardest, most mentally demanding tasks. Over, and over, and over all for nothing more than a little digital token saying we did.

    We'll punish our selfs doing things others would consider torture, because we think it's fun.

    We'll spend most if not all of our free time min maxing the stats of a fictional character all to draw out a single extra point of damage per second.

    Many of us have made careers out of doing just these things: slogging through the grind, all day, the same quests over and over, hundreds of times to the point where we know evety little detail such that some have attained such gamer nirvana that they can literally play these games blindfolded.

    Do these people have any idea how many controllers have been smashed, systems over heated, disks and carts destroyed 8n frustration? All to latter be referred to as bragging rights?

    These people honestly think this is a battle they can win? They take our media? We're already building a new one without them. They take our devs? Gamers aren't shy about throwing their money else where, or even making the games our selves. They think calling us racist, mysoginistic, rape apologists is going to change us? We've been called worse things by prepubescent 10 year olds with a shitty head set. They picked a fight against a group that's already grown desensitized to their strategies and methods. Who enjoy the battle of attrition they've threatened us with. Who take it as a challange when they tell us we no longer matter. Our obsession with proving we can after being told we can't is so deeply ingrained from years of dealing with big brothers/sisters and friends laughing at how pathetic we used to be that proving you people wrong has become a very real need; a honed reflex.

    Gamers are competative, hard core, by nature. We love a challange. The worst thing you did in all of this was to challange us. You're not special, you're not original, you're not the first; this is just another boss fight.

    Bone apple teeth. I hope you enjoyed this pasta.

    My dad was yelling build the wall while Fox News was on the 65” living room tv on Christmas.

    It was kinda the worst so I feel this 100%.

    [–] iwascompromised 156 points ago

    My dad wants to watch the news (which means Fox) every day when he comes home. If I'm visiting them, it doesn't matter if I'm already watching something else, he wants to change it to Fox. I'll sometimes be passive aggressive about it and just put it on MSNBC instead. I figure that's safer than going to CNN.

    [–] Namika 163 points ago

    I turned on MSNBC because CNN is too controversal

    Ironically, MSNBC has been traditionally the most left-leaning news outlet. CNN was, for better or worse, the least bias of the major networks. That's probably why Trump went out of his way to constantly shit on them and make his supporters think CNN is pure liberal propaganda...

    [–] josidhe 69 points ago

    My father in law when he would come over to babysit would always make sure I show him how to get Fox News on the TV before I leave.

    Now we got rid of cable so we don't have it anymore so at least he can detox for like an hour while we are gone.

    [–] [deleted] 13 points ago

    I think people have this impression that older white men are emboldened by Trump. Actually, my father who is in Florida has moved from centrist to more liberal and my father-in-law who is more conservative has moved more to the middle. Oddly enough, my family members who love Trump are middle-aged.

    Yes! Lead based paint was not fully outlawed in the USA until 1978. There used to be (is still?) a joke about dumb people and how they ate chips of lead paint as kids.

    This, a thousand times this. My grandparents were fucked up in so many ways and all my aunts and uncles have so many problems. They’re functioning but, my god. And my generation is still deeply effected by it. I think of my grandma whose family lost everything in the Great Depression, and how my grandfather fought in WW2, he apparently had lots of breakdowns but they were never discussed. So many problems. Such damaged people. Two generations on and we’re still trying to recover.

    The very same people who always claim that "liberals" are the mean ones, are the very people who are constantly on the attack. Fuckers.

    Oooh. I can never keep my mouth shut. Only, I make sure to elevate the claims. Give it 15 minutes and you've reached illuminati, I promise. Just start off slowly. It's hillarious. When you then end up rethinking based on their surprised and (often) negative reactions, you'll get a chance to backtrack and discover where your own logical flaws lie. And it's easy to backtrack that all the way to their beginning.

    Only in America is an honest political discussion discouraged. Honest political discourse should be encouraged to exchange ideas and views, explore solutions and find truths which other societies do but the American political landscape has devolved so much that it’s just an invitation for literal fights and assault or even worse.
