I agree that Mad Max was a superior film. You had a well written bias opinion. After seeing Avengers I felt it was a popcorn movie. Did not think twice about it or remember much from the experience. The opening scene felt like I was watching a video game and was waiting to pull back and see the "Heroes" standing around a game box and make a wise cracking joke. While on the other hand I was and is still intrigue by Mad Max and constantly think about the story line and the action scenes, which is pretty much the whole move. George Miller opening sequence of the two headed lizard and Mad Max being captured and trying to escaped pumped me up for the whole movie and waiting to see what happened next.
