      I just watched Road Warrior again a while back...and have seen and enjoyed them all....I was surprised at how young Mel Gibson looked....so, went and looked in the mirror to discover I had aged right along with him...of course he has been preserved for eternity as Mad Max! :)

      I only ever saw the first of these, but I do like Mel Gibson as an actor. Maybe it's time to see them, I wonder how dated they look now. Nicely done, blessed.

      @PromptWriter: Agreed... there are some movies that just don't make it as a remake... Mad Max is definitely one of them... Same with Dirty Dancing and Footloose I think. Thanks for stopping by.

      Mad Max is one of my favorite movies. I enjoy the series but the first one has always been my favorite. I'm not too keen on them remaking Mad Max.
