Ep. 04-37: Mad Max – Fury Road (2015)

Years after the collapse of civilization, the tyrannical Immortan Joe enslaves apocalypse survivors inside a fortress called the Citadel. When the warrior Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron) leads the despot’s five wives in a daring escape, she forges an alliance with Max Rockatansky (Tom Hardy), a captive loner. Fortified in the massive, armored truck, the War Rig, they try to outrun the ruthless warlord and his henchmen in a deadly high-speed chase through the Wasteland.

Mad Max : Fury Road

Welcome to the future, fast-paced and action-packed… and a warm welcome back to uber-talented director, George Miller. Thank you for immersing us again in this incredibly imaginative world of yours. Join us as we discuss why Fury Road is far superior to even the leading contenders in car-chase, action features (enough so to earn six Oscars from 10 nominations!). Listen as Johnny Has the Keys journeys once again to the world of Mad Max—a desolate, post-nuclear wasteland where bullets are farmed, gas is gold, and survival is determined as quickly as the flip of a coin… or a vehicle.

Ep. 02-26: Mad Max (1979) & Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981)

Episode 26 – Mad Max & Road Warrior

After Max (Mel Gibson) avenges the death of his wife and young son at the hands of the vicious gang leader, Toecutter (Hugh Keays-Byrne), he drives the post-apocalyptic highways of the Australian outback, fending off attacks from nomadic tribes in order to survive. Discovering an encampment led by the relatively peaceful Pappagallo (Mike Preston), Max becomes the group’s reluctant defender against the hulking Humungus (Kjell Nilsson) and his ruthless marauders, in exchange for gas and the promise of a potential paradise.

Welcome to the near future, where survival is slim and gas is gold. In the late seventies, George Miller introduced us to this iconic character and put Australia on the map as a contender in the cinematic world. Join us as we discuss the first 2 installments in this franchise, Mad Max (1979), the insanely cheap but glorious indie, and its follow-up, Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981), a sequel that not only managed to pack seats but exceeded and enhanced the vision of its predecessor. Listen, as Johnny Has the Keys takes you to the dangerous desert roads of the apocalypse, where humanity has been abandoned, chaos rules, and your only hope may be that of a lone stranger in black.
