source: facebook.com/madmaxmovieuk Mad Max: Fury Road was the first Oscar Best Picture nominee I saw this year, which was fitting given its release date was all the way back in Summer. One thing I have to admit: I am a Mad Max newbie – I was aware of the films, but aside from knowing it was a post-apocalyptic setting, Mel Gibson played Max and Tina Turner had a role, as well as a kick-ass song, in one of the original films, I knew very little.
