...not a sequel, but a cash-in remake.
It's not a Mad Max movie. The main character isn't Max, the atmosphere isn't Mad Max's, it just happened to have spiked cars chasing plated cars in the wastland.

Indeed. What they should have done was get the writer/director of the original film, who I gather had been trying to get a sequel made for over a decade, to come and write and direct the new one. Clearly whoever they got to write this didn't really understand Max's character at all.</sarcasm>

How is other Western nations ordering the awful F-35 evidence of anything other than massive corruption and the true nature of the relationship between the US government and their supposed allies?

And you're a goddamn fucking retard if you think that that plane is being ordered for its air to air capabilities. "make every other combat aircraft anyone has ever designed obsolete"... You are fucking stupid and know nothing about combat aircraft. Nothing. Su-35s club these things like baby seals. F-35s are for air to ground. Only the F-22 has anything approaching the capabilities you've talked of. Don't talk about shit you don't understand.

But you're a retard, since you like such an inferior product just because it's new and you call everyone names who doesn't. Fuck you. Who cares what you think? Furthermore, even though near 100% negative feedback of something doesn't necessarily mean that it's bad due to the self-selection of people who hate it, it sure as fucking hell doesn't support the idea that it is actually good despite all the hate.

If you don't see a difference between shooting down a warplane in a time of war, and attacking people just walking around without a declaration of war, thus extending it to potentially anyone on the planet, at any time, in a "war" that has no objectives, no defined enemy, and will never end, you are a truly evil person. Which you are.
