The second movie in our Christmas 2020 lineup isn’t traditionally considered a Christmas movie but once you hear our arguments for why it most certainly is, we think you’ll agree. Join us for the podcast to hear our thoughts on the creation of modern buddy cop tropes, the bizarre music choices, (can a saxophone ever be used non-sexually) and party nog at your daughter’s funeral.
Thanks to Anthony Basich for commissioning this podcast, and quite frankly, changing our entire mind about the Mad Max franchise. We think 1981’s “The Road Warrior”, directed by George Miller and starring Mel Gibson, is awesome, and stands up to any of it’s 80’s action movie brethren in a competition about holding up and entertaining a modern audience. We discuss feral kids, post-apocalyptic sexuality, the economics of a refinery under constant attack, working with animals in the movies, and much more.
