Yah! :D

love that car.  did elvis survive that btw?

Informed fan speculation is that yeah, he totally survived it. Because Elvis is actually Morsov. He:

  • starts the run as the Elvis car’s lancer,
  • flips off as seen here,
  • is picked up (off-camera) by that warboy on the motorcycle,
  • lances the Buzzard vehicle,
  • is plucked off and saved by the warboy swinging on the crane thingy,
  • takes over the fuel pod turret,
  • harpoons the pursuing Buzzard vehicle,
  • gets crossbowed in the face and torso, 
  • chromes himself, and
  • dies in a blaze of witnessed glory by leaping onto the buzzard vehicle with a thunderstick in each hand.

So, on balance, a fairly eventful day.

ETA: Oh, but if you meant, did the car survive, not sure. Someone could check to see if it’s on the car carrier in later scenes. It wouldn’t surprise me if it is, though I guess it’s also possible that the Citadel war party didn’t pass that point, having instead cut off the war rig by coming in from the side, as you see in the aerial shots when they’re closing in. But someone someone surely picked it up eventually. You’re not going to leave a sweet vehicle like that just lying around the Wasteland.

no i meant, isn’t Elvis the driver of the car?  i think i missed something along the way.

Oh, sorry. I’d seen some people refer to the lancer as Elvis in the past, so I assumed that’s who you meant. But yeah, it makes sense that “Elvis” would more properly speaking be the driver.

The clearest shot of him, I think, is when Furiosa walks past just after the title screen. Here’s that shot, cropped and over-exposed to try to get a better look at him:

It would be interesting to go carefully through the later scenes to see if anyone who looks like him is present.

Welp, recent evidence says Morsov is Elvis Car Lancer/Gunner

Morsov is Bogan War Boy.

Not so Mediocre

(Possibly a Buzzard child…)

oh my god, I never realised it’s him (he looks so different when he’s not yelling???), but now it all makes sense, because at first the biker on the right rides alone

but after the Elvis Car crashes, the biker has Morsov on the bike

so he stopped and picked Morsov up real quick after the crash, how have I never noticed this before, I feel so ashamed

Because this movie zips everything across your vision lickity split, telling little hidden stories here and there but constantly keeping your focus on the main plot.

So much genius this movie is :3

So wait, once he’s on the rig he replaces the guy who is manning the gun on the fuel pod?

Yup!

best way to watch Fury Road is to focus on the individual background War Boys

I still like the guy lying on the tire like “This is fine.”

But, on another note: look at all the pups helping in that second right gif. I always get distracted by the one getting picked up and moved, sure, but there are others back there carrying stuff to the cars. Some look sort of middling-grown, but there’s a teeny tiny one with an armful of something walking in too. Warpups! Tiny warpups!

flamethrowing-hurdy-gurdy:

OKAY NO I literally got out of bed and stopped falling asleep to ask you guys why are we not talking about this here proof of War Boy literacy?

image

Or is this merely proof of War Boys learning how to code their (relatively short) names in letters-as-symbols but remaining otherwise illiterate?

Reblog a reblog because damnit, this kept me from sleeping and no one has any comments? You guys choose to fail me now??

The Organic Mechanic tattoos English onto Max (and presumably other blood bags). Is that only for his (the OM’s) benefit? I think it’s likely that others are able to read that.

The Dome has piles of books (swamps of books). Miss Giddy has tattooed hundreds (thousands?) of words onto her body. The wives/sisters doubtless spent a lot of time sealed away in there. I bet that got pretty boring. They, at least, knew how to read (and write, as the parting graffiti shows).

I think some high-ranking imperators can probably read. Warlords are literate; the People Eater keeps track of expenditures and reads them off a ledger.

War Boys fetishize aesthetically pleasing remnants of pre-collapse civilization. (I know there’s that stuff in the prequel comics about burning all the books and “wordburgers”, but I’m treating all that as suspect and only provisionally canon, subject to agreement with the more fully imagined world of the film.) So I know they would have appreciated things like typographically stylized vehicle logos and brandnames. I’m not sure that they’d have had much access to things to read beyond that, though.

That leaves me thinking your second supposition is probably close to the mark: War Boys know how to code their (relatively short) names, but are unlikely to be very literate beyond that.

On the side topic of short War Boy names, only four of them are explicitly named in the film, right?

  • Nux
  • Slit
  • [The] Ace
  • Morsov

That Morsov, breaking the curve with his two-syllable, six-letter name. What a show off.

Could you settle an unresolved query; Is Nux’s face the consequence of deliberate scarification to resemble a skull? or is it just a result of him wearing his ill-fitting, salvaged motorcycle goggles too tight & too frequently thus cutting into the flesh around his nose, cheekbones and temples, In addition to his lips getting severely lacerated by the desert air & wound healing complications? Or a li’l bit of both? …*Discuss*

Thursday, July 9th, 2015

I believe in the goggles headcanon 100% tbh! I like the idea of Nux and Slit getting their respective injuries at the same time, in the same accident, like Nux crashing the car and having to deal with a passed out Slit and Slit’s injuries being way worse as well.

Anyway, the scars on Nux’s lips tho, I def think that was done to resemble a skull, I see a lot of war boys paint their lips like that with black lines. And we already know from Nux’s scarification that the boy has a very high threshold for pain, like DUDE isn’t that thing intricate AF? And I think he takes a lot of pride in being able to slit his lips (one of the body’s most sensitive organs) to get that look. Like maybe he sometimes feels like war paint isn’t enough and he wants the marks he identifies with to be literally in his skin forever.

Shout out to the War Boy in skinny pants who saved Morsov.

So, I interpreted this as Morsov saving the lancer on the bike. That is, that Morsov is the one swinging out on the swing-y thing to pluck that guy up just before the Buzzard vehicle plows through them.

I’ve been assuming that Morsov’s post is the turret atop the fuel pod, such that every time the person in that position does something it’s Morsov. So for example, it was Morsov who was the first to notice and call the crew’s attention to the flares being fired from the war party leaving the Citadel.

But maybe I’ve been wrong all this time, and Morsov actually was on the back of the motorcycle until this other guy swung out and rescued him.

Clearly an excuse for another re-watch. :-)

I can’t say as to which is whom, but you can hear someone calling “Morsov!!” as the swinging is occurring. It would make sense that skinny-pants is calling to him to get his attention for the lift? But also skinny-pants /could/ be the one calling out for help(do war boys call for help tho? I don’t know >.<).

Another possibility is that it’s a witnessing going on. That is, someone on the rig is seeing him swinging out and is calling his name to call attention to his act of awesomeness.

In a story sense, that could be intended to help set up the audience for the upcoming sequence when Morsov dives onto the Buzzard vehicle. That is, helping us understand that the war boys interact like that so we’ll recognize it more clearly when it happens again.

Thursday, June 25th, 2015

flamethrowing-hurdy-gurdy:

Yo fandom, talk to me about Slit and Nux now. Not Sux, I mean, just what’s going on in the film. Because I can’t figure Slit out.

What are Slit’s priorities? What does he even care about?

-he takes Nux’s wheel. Dick move?

-did you even see the look on his face? He’s determined. He walks past Nux twice. DICK MOVE but perhaps also something more.

-ah, but I guess he thinks Nux is dead meat. Like he could sit there and pretend like he can do something but what’s the point? No feels among warboys.

-he looks pretty happy that Nux turns out to have fight left. He had to be convinced, but he gives up the wheel and now he’s pumped that they’re going together.

-Ergo, he cares more about his driver than about his ride.

Or maybe he would have preferred that all along because it works better that way. Is it that if the car hadn’t gone, Slit wouldn’t have had a vehicle to ride to battle at all? Probably not true since he was on the Interceptor soon after. But maybe that car’s lancer got killed so stroke of luck for Slit.

Who would have taken Nux’s car if neither Slit nor Nux had grabbed the wheel?

Further:

– “Mediocre, Morsov!” Can you be more of an asshole, Slit? Do you even believe in this cult or are you just out there to have fun? You did a pretty respectful V8 at the altar and at Joe just then, so maybe you’re just a dick to your fellow warboys because you need to feel superior. Like that’s your idea of a ‘joke’, maybe? Disrespecting a witnessing?

-Also what exactly is the idea with ‘Decapito’? What’s the point here, Slit? Destroying a perfectly good bloodbag?

Moving on:

-Slit is still alive after the storm, but Nux doesn’t even stop to say hi. Dick move?

– “I got his boot, take me!” No wonder he’s jealous now. But he sounds so pathetic. By now the film consistently tells us ‘dislike this guy, he is rude and annoying’.

Finally:

-Slit on the Interceptor. “You filth, you traitored him”. Seems emotional enough for when you’ve just seen your war buddy defect.

-Except he doesn’t seem to be particularly hurt? This is not personal at all for Slit?

-Huh?

-He’s just trying to show off like some creep and he’s very happy to see Nux fail. 

-He is HAVING FUN. I know that’s the warboy style but we’ve been set up to see warboys as people and to notice a tight partnership between Slit and Nux, so where’s the resolution?

-So…religious fanaticism (traitors don’t deserve a second’s thought), drugs, or Slit u asshole?

-Someone pointed out that he doesn’t ask for a witness, doesn’t spray chrome, he just gets in between the two trucks. He tries to take out Max like THAT is personal. Coincidence? Misreading of Slit’s facial expression? Which is really not at all like what Morsov or Nux looked like when they were getting ready to die?

-Was that necessary, really? Was that a proper kamicrazy death or was that a waste of resources?

-Or a miscalculation?

-Slit u asshole? 

-Slit is this your way of being pissed off at Nux?

-Slit are you putting extra crazy in the kamicrazy?

-Actually I am starting to get huffy about this bit because it would have been much prettier for an arc if Nux had been climbing out of the engine just then. He emerges seconds later to give Max a boost.

(or possibly all of these are just editing choices that served the main storyline better but create unfortunate assumptions about how the boys behaved. For those inclined to give a damn. Ahem.)

Obligatory gif:

It boggles my mind that there is SO MUCH MOVIE that Slit (Slit!) has room to be this complex and interesting.

Please tell me what you think about the moment in the gif above.

I’m just amusing myself with the idea that Furiosa introduced the forehead to forehead thing to the War Boys.

Maybe after her first run on the War Rig she’s so pumped up, she’s done it, they shook off the Buzzards, it feels like her whole body is still roaring with the growl of the engines and the bellow of the horn and the sheer adrenaline of it, her crew was fantastic, she chose well, she is so high with it.

So she jumps down from the cab when they’re back at the Citadel and Ace comes up to report and she grabs him and lightly conks their foreheads together in a half remembered greeting. And Ace is like ‘…the fuck?’ but she is grinning and clearly pleased with him so obviously this is the highest sign of approval and honour you can be given by an Imperator.

So the War Rig team starts doing it, and since they are the Most Elite Team among War Boys, soon the others start imitating the gesture. And because they’re War Boys it becomes more of a slightly competitive conking of heads than the tender forehead press the Vuvalini do, but that is the story of how the War Boys started butting heads.

I mean I mean I MEAN

Ace is like… touched by the Imperatorially Blackened Forehead? Being given some of that status grease on his forehead? Being grinned at from up close by an Imperator who is practically vibrating with Yes!Good!YouRock! feels?

Talk about stuff that inspires loyalty

I just. Can you imagine Ace just standing around a little stunned and not quite knowing how to process it? And the rest of the crew is like looking at him too and Furiosa’s already moving through them still vibrating with energy and headdaps and shoulder pats they’re looking at him for guidance and Ace is like almost angry when he goes up to the nearest Boy and slams their foreheads together because, “Well??!

And the War Boys whoop with it, moshes together in a pile of limbs, and Furiosa’s finds herself pretty much crowdsurfing. The sounds of their celebration bangs against the heights of the Citadel like its carving out space for her in the rocks.

I’m just imagining Ace after a halflifetime of Very High Up Joe giving kind of conditional distant approval and always knowing Joe would be more pleased if he died for him… he gets this. He gets the new Imperator, spilling over with energy and approval, touching him like that, completely unfiltered. She has to go onto her toes and pull his head down a little and she does not care, she is 20 feet tall and bulletproof in that moment and in her War Boys’ eyes forever after.

(I was totally daring you)(somebody please write me some smut about the adrenaline filled aftermath of this moment)(with adorable sacked out puppy pile afterward)(and communal protectiveness of the Imperator)(Making sure nobody hogs her blanket)(You don’t get to sleep next to her Morsov you kick like a twitchy pup)(and Furiosa kind of limp and glowing and smiling indulgently as they fuss)

So we’ve either been reading the same kinkmeme prompts or that was your prompt which means I should tell you that I was one of the replies saying ‘yes plz’.

And gosh, I’m not writing smut at work.

But listen though, like the first night, that first time, none of them even ends up in their bunks and it’s not what you think; they’re in the meal halls still.

They’re in the meal halls and they’re handing each other food and passing down plates like catching a body falling from tumbling like hand meeting hand to swing away from wreckage and they’re all endless words, endless revisiting of that run, what would be done better faster more, more modifications to their lances, more maneuvers to practice, is there a better way to get a lance for you, is there a better position for our flamer, is there a better allocation for the bullets…

“I don’t think I saw our Imperator miss once.”

And their tables roared and hands slapped tables and aqua-cola was lifted high and splashed about like chrome.

Little by little, the night grew long and

the mess hall emptied of all but them. Their

stories grew softer, grew quiet, and almost secret like Witnessing that they shouldn’t have the right to have. Three tables became crammed into one, spilled ontop and across the floor of the table where Furiosa held court. No one wanted to leave.

But War Boys run dry eventually too and they drooped from the table to puddle around each other on the ground, like the half-acknowledged memories of their War Pup piles. (They shouldn’t be, they shouldn’t–)

“Look at this lot,” Ace huffed at his Imperator, the both of them remain hunched at the table.

“I’ll need to get them up in the morning.” Furiosa murmured. 

Ace knew that if the Boys were found here by the morning crew, they’d hear no end of it.

It makes something skitter in his stomach to realize that she’s watching over them, still (like swallowing something alive).

“I’ll keep you company then,” Ace says, and raises his cup.

She smacks her’s against it, gently, like heads meeting.
