I've made a few minor tweaks (mainly to language, changing a few uses of 'movie' to 'film' to avoid too much repetition and similarly changing a 'truck' to 'lorry') but can I check a couple of sentences with you, please?

'The first part of 'Mad Max' is truly a strange film which doesn't seem to fit to the others of the series at all.'
- By 'first part' do you mean the whole first film in the series, not just the first part or Act of that specific film?

'What is Dryland in 'Waterworld' turns out to be Sydney in 'Mad Max''
Dryland in 'Waterworld' was Mount Everest, not Sydney. Do you mean something like 'In 'Mad Max', Sydney is considered a mythical paradise similar to how Dryland was perceived in 'Waterworld'?

Sorry, yes, I finally did.

The only thing I noticed is that at the start of 'Fury Road' the tense suddenly switches from present to past for a few sentences.

That's a good point – and as the first three films are all discussed about in the present tense it jars that something set afterwards is now in the past tense, so I've changed it to be in the present tense too. Are you happy with this now?
