Mad Max and Waterworld share the same timeline
@cypnk So… all the water's on one side of the planet? How's that work?
@mdhughes It's possible that whatever happened in Mad Max was the origin of Waterworld eventually
@cypnk Also: I generally like Waterworld more than Mad Max or Road Warrior. Dennis Hopper sells me a movie better than rando Strine assholes stapling tires to their leather jackets. Young not-openly-racist-yet Gibson was more charming than sociopathic middle-aged Costner, but all the stuff around them is better in Waterworld.
Beyond Thunderdome is better than either, though.
fury road spoilers, uspol
act 1 (max's capture) is very serious
act 2 (the blood bag) has some silliness (we first see the doof warrior) but it's handled seriously; the silliness makes sense to everyone but max and the viewer
I think of it as like uspol now; some silly aspects that are still deadly serious for many people
@mdhughes I also liked Waterworld more exactly because of Dennis
@cypnk bold of you to assume the four mad max movies share the same timeline
@bonzoesc Actually, only the first one. I like to think the original Mad Max was the start of Waterworld
@cypnk ok yeah that does make sense 💯
@amphetamine Well, it's only a theory. I think it works only if the original Mad Max happened in the decades (century?) before Waterworld
