I like the idea in this review that just as we mythologize the Bronze age, like in the form of Conan the Barbarian, Mad Max is a way future civilizations will mythologize our car culture based on the artifacts we'll leave behind.

The Joker should have tattoos that don't make sense. Like the slogan for a diner or a page of the phone book.  Slap "Eat at Willie's" on his forehead.  This is the character who tried to copyright a fish after all. #JaredLeto
