Mad Max: Fury Road is insane, in the best possible way

I had never seen a Mad Max movie prior to Fury Road, so my expectations were exactly nilch. I knew very little about the franchise, save for the fact that it kickstarted Mel Gibson's acting career, and that the last one was released way back in times of yore (1985, to be more specific).
