comment Should one watch the first three Mad Max movies before watching Fury Road?
I agree that if you want to fully understand Max, you need to watch all the films, but after watching Fury Road, I'm not convinced you need to fully understand Max at all to enjoy this film. He's really a supporting character in this one. (Not to say he isn't a big part of the movie--but his backstory isn't, IMHO).

@BrettFromLA they're not to cool the engine (that's what the radiator is for) but rather to 'feed' the engine. Just as it needs fuel, it needs oxygen. The more fuel, the more oxygen it needs.

Yes, those are air intakes and petrol wouldn't kill you. I'm also not sure it was petrol...may have been pure alcohol or the like.

comment Why is Daredevil 2015 so brutal?
It's not a trend. It's human nature. Violence has always been a mainstay of film. TV is just finally catching up.

comment Why did the train need to keep moving?
"from a true physical sense" = there doesn't have to be a reason. As John points out, it's symbolism. There isn't a physical reason. There's an artistic reason.

@VedranŠego I see the issue with my answer now. I was answering the question's title "Should one watch..." but the actual question in the text is "Are they connected...". That's really two different questions.

@VedranŠego true, though I really don't think it has much bearing on one enjoying the sequels.

@Paulster2 my entire point was that these are action movies. Story is nice, but secondary.

@NapoleonWilson true. First movie: less desert, fewer crazies.

comment How would you describe the relation between Mathilda and Léon?
@NapoleonWilson usually, on SE, the point is to have a single correct answer. If a question can have multiple correct answers, it's usually seen as not an ideal question for the Q/A format. In my opinion, this is a great topic for a lengthy discussion...not a succinct single answer. My 2 cents.

It's a dream. Dreams are weird.

comment How would you describe the relation between Mathilda and Léon?
Good question in general, but how is this answerable on SE? I think everyone would have their own interpretation.
