MAD MAX: Fury Road: When does it take place?

Finally saw Mad Max IV. If you don't want spoilers, turn back now, but I have a theory I want to put out there.

I don't think the Max in this movie is the same one as in the previous movies. I think it's a different Max a generation, or more likely two generations, later on. How is that possible? Not sure, but if it doesn't happen like 60 years after the pocky pockalypse, then it has to happen between MM and TRW, which is obviously what we're supposed to think, but which doesn't make sense.


Jurassic World

First the disclaimer: this movie is going to make a ton of money regardless of what I think. Okay?

With that out of the way, what is the proper grading scale for a Jurassic Park movie these days? Sitting at 10 is the classic original that wowed everyone with its streamlined story and cutting edge effects. Clocking in at a big fat 0 is the awful Jurassic Park II (aka The Lost World), which put no heart into the endeavor and took its audience totally for granted. Coming in at 6 is Jurassic Park III, an anemic effort that's at least watchable.
