Oscar Movie Decor Review: Mad Max: Fury Road

Which Oscar movie character has the nicest place?

Welcome to Oscar Movie Decor Reviews, where we take a look at the most important question that has arisen this awards season: which character in an Oscar-nominated movie had the nicest place? Next up, Mad Max: Fury Road.

In Mad Max: Fury Road, the long-awaited fourth installment in the Mad Max franchise, we are introduced to a world in which one man, Immortan Joe, has a really nice house filled with luxurious amenities such as an indoor hot tub, blood room, and breast milk farm. Meanwhile, nobody else has a nice house (or any house, or water) which leads to tensions in the community. A group of friends including Mad Max, Furiosa, and five of Immortan Joe's wives decide to embark on a road trip to a city known as the "Green Place," which is known for its LEED-certified buildings and affordable housing.

What follows is your standard road trip movie fare—pit stops, hijinks, an electric guitarist strapped to the front of a truck, and lots and lots of flamethrowers. The tension builds as we wait to see what the environmentally friendly "Green Place" city will look like, and whether or not the architects have managed to incorporate green technology into an attractive design scheme.

Ultimately, they arrive at their destination, but it is not what it seems. We don't want to spoil anything, but let's just that in the end, all of the good characters end up with a very nice house, perfectly setting this movie up for a sequel in which they all hang out and redecorate.
