Deconstructing 80’s & 90’s action movies. Relating them to comics, TV, and cartoons from then and now.

Several of their episodes feature discussions of post-apocalyptic films including:

Episode ? Mad Max 1 & 2

Episode 209 The Road
Zack and Ian discuss how bleak is the new black in terms of cinematic post-ap fashion. 

Episode 229 The Book of Eli
Mark and Ian talk about this serviceable Post-Ap. Denzel is kind of wasted and Oldman has a little fun but isn’t what I’d like him to be. Really this just makes me want to watch Beyond Thunderdome again.

Episode 288 Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome
Ian is joined by Matt, Joshua, Mychal, and Malcolm to talk about the closing chapter of the Mad Max saga. Three cheers for 80′s pop saxophone, shooting on location and bad ass set design! Oh and a meaningful post apocalyptic story with dare I say a hint of optimism.
