I always felt like Mad Max left me a bit empty. Expected a lot more than what I got. Only watched 1 & 2 and always late at night when I've probably not been as arsed to watch it. 

 

Beverly Hills Cop 1 & 2 are good, 3 less so. 

 

Judge Reinhold edges it.

Could never get into the original Mad Max films.
 

I want to like them, they just don’t do anything for me when I’ve watched them.

 

Fury Road is ace though. Great film. 
 

Beverly Hills Cop it is though. Loved those films as a boy.

Mad Max going out to Beverly Hills Cop.

It really is the end of civilization. What's the point any more?

My thoughts exactly.

Eddie Murphy was brilliant as Axel Foley. Great theme tune, too. I’ve never liked the Mad Max films.

Yep, Eddie Murphy at his best.

I thought the first 2 BHC were decent but nowt special.

 

Rewatching the first Mad Max is sobering by just how terribly it's dated. The 2nd one was really good though but the 3rd one, Thunderdome was absolutely shit. However, Fury Road was fantastic and is the clincher for me for a "franchise" that's absolutely all over the shop.

I don't have a horse in this race but I would state that Beverley Hills Cop 3 is in the top 10 worst films I have ever seen.

Well, the Road Warrior (MM2) is the first proper Mad Max. People tend to forget that it launched the entire post-apocalyptic sub-genre and gave it a lot of its imagery. It owes a lot to I Am Legend  obviously, and it was to a great extent inspired by a Belgiun comic book Jeremiah, but it was essentially the big daddy of the post-apocalypse. BHC I remember as a mildly entertaining cop comedy.

 

And Eddie Murphy's best film is 48 Hours.

Nah, his best film is Trading Places.

Beverly Hills Cop. Even though the third film is shit, the brilliant first one more than makes up for it. Any other opinion suggests you like a banana up your tailpipe and have Herpes Simplex 10.

Fun fact: John Ashton was only 35 and Ronny Cox was 45 when they made BH1

Went to watch mad max trilogy in the cinema, really enjoyed the first 2 but the third one was shit. As said earlier it's really dated now.

Beverly Hills Cop is a comedy, comedies are movies for people with no real sense of humor. 
 

Comedies should never win anything.

I never thought you would outdo your work in the music tournaments but this is incredible stuff.

 

Bravo.

Bingo, bango, sugar in the gas tank!

 

Exactly how i felt about Mad Max. I remember when i was a kid and people used to go on about the first two being really violent and i just thought "meh" when i watched them both.

    • If we forced them to make a decision based on time, they'd have probably ruled out our 1st goal on Sunday. The only way to get fewer bad decisions by VAR is to reduce the number of decsions they have to make. As I said before, let the bench have 1 appeal (which would be time limited), call what they want looked at and let the VAR check it. If the appeal is upheld, you keep the appeal. The fewer times the VAR is involved the better as far as I'm concerned. 
    • 21 wins?! I really don't know how pep does it. A genius of our time.
    • See what you did there and I like it.
    • 1. Yep, but... see 3. I wouldn’t want to be on their ship for my Caribbean cruise.   2. Law of unintended consequence. In the NFL I’ve seen it mentioned as being a given that the headset communicators worn to allow coaches and coordinators to send play calls into the QB and defense will “go down” at some stage of a game when playing away to the Patriots; it’s simply a matter of when. It’s cheating, but they would call it gaining an edge. They’re Ferguson’s United. The 20 second rule makes a loaf of sense until you find there’s a VERY different angle that shows a VERY different outcome available after the 20 seconds is up from time to time and they’re still able to screw things however they want to. Into the realms of conspiracy now rather than ineptness, but...   3. Yep. Probably lots of this is the answer.
    • Shanks’ first big money (37,500) signing, he announced himself with a hattrick against The blues in a Lancashire Senior Cup game. Evertonians hated the Saint and the feeling was mutual. My dad died in October ’64 never saw us win the cup, I’ll never forget mum’s tears when Saint scored the winner at Wembley. The Saint’s passing brought it all back; The Saint, Big Ron and Willie Stevenson were the Scottish heartbeat of Shankly’s first great team. Every league winning Liverpool team has had at least one Scot.
