    The year 2000...seen as it should be seen today. Too often I watch a film from this era and can't get passed how dated it is, (early 2000's films age worse for me than 70's or 90's films).

    If George Miller dropped (more) acid and directed a Lord of the Rings side mission, it would look something like this.

    Well this had to have been one of my most anticipated films ever. Not to the feverish longing of Fury Road extent, that trailer put me off trailers for good. Mostly. I remember how daunting the year and a half seemed after seeing a glimpse of what thrills, what colors, Miller had cooked up.
