Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985) in Bad Movie Recommendations Posted June 19, 2015 Bump: To the posters above me who said this is a good movie you are crazy. This movie is the Indiana Jones IV/ Star Trek V of the Mad Max series. The biggest problem with this movie was that it took two really great movie ideas, cut them in half, then spliced the front half of one to the back half of the other to make one piece of shit. The turn where it goes from Barter Town to Lil' Lamplight is a huge wtf shift. I'd say it's more the Star Trek 3 of the Mad Max series. It's not as good as Road Warrior or Fury Road and it has some plot structure issues, but it's still got great stuff in it. The Mad Max series has thankfully been spared a Star Trek V.
