It's Road Warrior.

I want to say it's super unfair to nominate a film just being released. Films to be included in the canon need some age. This helps ensure films like Crash don't make it in. Perspective happens only over time. So in ten years, I would be happy to look at this film again and determine if it should be in the canon, but for now it's too soon.

I loved Fury Road, but I'm still for Road Warrior.

I'd vote Fury Road over pretty much anything except Road Warrior, which I can't deny came first and had a huge impact on everything over the last thirty years. And although it seems like Fury Road is already making big waves, it's too early to know for sure. Road Warrior for me.

Although I'm mostly on Amy's side when it comes to the War Boys.

I'm assuming The Canon is like The Hall of Fame. In most sports (boxing for sure), an athlete needs to be retired for 5 yrs before being in the ballot for the HOF. Considering Fury Road for The Canon of great films would be like putting a star rookie on the ballot. This is anarchy!
