I just felt it was unnecessary to have to explain everything and the cast was pretty blah. There was none of that on-screen chemistry that the cast from the 1982 film had. I'll put it this way: I've seen the 1982 film at least 20 times and I will be seeing it many more times before I die. I watched the 2011 movie one time and have not felt any desire to see it again.

Disagree. Mad Max 2 was awesome. The Road Warrior can't decide whether it's a post-apocalyptic drama, or a cop movie. It was still revolutionary in the uncompromising way it utilized car stunts, but only Mad Max 2 and Mad Max Fury Road turned up car stunts to 11. Mad Max 2 is great because all the fights are chaotic, nothing works, it's not the kind of highly artificial dance choreography that is passed as a "fight scene" these days.

When you say Mad Max 2, you are talking about The Road Warrior and not Mad Max (3) Beyond Thunderdome. The Road Warrior is Mad Max 2.

I think what NoFlyBoy meant by "both sequels" are the two films that came after "The Road Warrior". So hence, "Beyond Thunderdome" and "Fury Road".

Okay... but I still think that PM should go and watch Fury Road. It's dialling Mad Max 2 up to eleven. It may not offer a better story, but then again Mad Max 2 isn't about a profound story either.
In fact, I pity you for not having it seen in cinema with a giant monster screen and sound system. Some films are just made to fill your entire field of view. Fury Road is one of them.

My critique was about the original Mad Max.

Bingo. Music back then was much more important in selling a movie since there was no internet and no social media. It also helps explain why movies with very memorable soundtracks are much less common today than they were in the past.

I seem to remember a documentary or some such, stating that it is actually a trend started more or less with The Graduate from 1967 with Dustin Hoffman, and the soundtrack using some Simon & Garfunkel songs. Speaking of non-musical themed movies using air-played songs, so excluding all the Elvis, "Singin' in the rain" etc. movies made to promote the musician/band....
