You know it, George Miller’s latest post-apocalyptic, motor-driven, fuel-burning automotive armageddon opus, Mad Max: Fury Road.
The original films featured lots of practical stunts, and no CGI, whilst the latest (famously NOT featuring Mel Gibson) featured much post-production FX work. But what would Fury Road look like without all the high tech wizardy?

Frankly, I think it looks a lot better. More naturalistic, more in line with the rest of the series.
The overproduced, artificial look of modern CGI tends to leave me cold. A more brutal, more raw movie would have had my blood pumping. As it was, Fury Road was a great action movie, but not a great Mad Max movie, if you can see the difference.
