Mad Max or Furious 7: Which will be Best Car Movie of the Year?


Let's vote!

I adore the Fast and Furious franchise, so much so that I've collaborated with the video team on a very special, very large project that will run later this week. And yet I'm still a little skeptical of Furious 7. Based purely off the trailers, the film appears to have less emphasis on practical effects than its predecessors, replacing what I love with gun battles and computer-animated set pieces. The movie that appears to nail the stunt work I loved in previous Fast films is Mad Max: Fury Road. The long in-development reboot of the Mad Max franchise has its share of CG, no questions, but its car sequences — which are rumored to comprise the entirety of the film — appear to have been shot with actual cars. That's all I want, y'all. Well, that and a story about the power of family. When it comes to family, Furious films will always have one muscular leg up.

Fellow Fast and Furious super fan Chris Ziegler and I are debating which film that we haven't seen will be the car movie of the year. Let's have a vote! I've include some Mad Max gifs to help you decide.

Here are some Furious 7 gifs. Ignore Ross' comment, posted before the story event went live. Who does this guy think he is? Anyway, I hope you love CG!
