Review - Mad Max Fury Road Black and Chrome Edition
Mad Max is my second favorite post-apocalyptic franchise.)  Sorry Max, Planet of the Apes will always be first in my heart.)  Needless to say, I was thrilled when the franchise was resurrected in 2015 with Tom Hardy in the iconic role of Max Rockatansky.

I wasn't the only one.

Fury Road went on to win six Oscars at last year's Academy Awards.  It also took its place in the family lexicon as the first R-Rated movie I took the Wonder Twins to see in a theater.

I was really curious when Warner Brothers Home Entertainment announced they were releasing a "black and chrome" version of the movie upon its home video release.  "Black and Chrome" translates to black and white.  If any movie could benefit from a black and white release it was Fury Road.

The movie's bleak vistas and expansive empty spaces really benefit from the black and chrome treatment.  The wasteland has never looked like more of a waste.  The grime covered survivors look dirtier.  The vehicles look more menacing.

The two-disc release even includes a special introductory piece by George Miller describing his vision of the Mad Max universe rendered in black and white.

In addition to the two-disc release, Warner Brothers has also released the Mad Max High Octane Collection which collects all four movies in the franchise along with the black and chrome edition of Fury Road.  

The Mad Max High Octane Collection is available to own in both Blu-ray and DVD versions. Both collections include the four films and five hours of bonus content, including the visually stunning Mad Max: Fury Road “Black & Chrome” Edition. The Blu-ray collection will also include a 4K-Ultra HD version and a UV Digital Copy of Mad Max: Fury Road.

Everything about Fury Road is better in black and chrome.

If you haven't already, give it a look.  You'll be glad you did.
