Mad Max: Fury Road, Crash And Smash Video With No CGI

Over the last decade I’ve almost given up on “genre” movies as each release seems more risible than the last. The need to create tent pole films geared towards mass audiences and the expectations of the lowest common denominator has resulted in a glut of utterly superficial, utterly facile theatrical releases. Even those with pretensions to something more substantive, Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” for instance, quickly abandon drama for CGI-driven hijinks making them little more than celluloid computer games. One of the few movies to have caught my attention in recent times was George Miller’s return to the “Mad Max” series with 2015’s “Mad Max: Fury Road”, a film which wore its special effects clothes lightly (or at least, it successfully gave the impression of doing so). YouTube channel, ESPORTS TV, has posted a short behind the scenes glimpse of the production sans CGI, and the results are still quite impressive. Perhaps more so.
