Mad Max: Fury Road is out and we saw it! Adam Felber (NPR) and Todd Levin (Conan) join me in their review.
“Mad Max:Fury Road” stars Tom Hardy, and Nicholas Hoult.
Todd and I record in a sketchy alley behind Sunset and Curson. Right near Meltdown Comics where you can watch “Horrible Movie Night.”
n a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, two rebels just might be able to restore order: Max, a man of action and of few words, and Furiosa, a woman of action who is looking to make it back to her childhood homeland.
Instead of the reboot being a remake of Mad Max (1979), revealing how Max Rockantasky became The Road Warrior. George Miller decided that the reboot will take place in the post-apocalyptic Australia, years after the new Max (Tom Hardy) lost his family, because he did not wish to do a remake or retell the story that had already been told and had wanted to update the universe and the wasteland and wanted new moviegoers to remember Max as a man with nothing to lose after losing his family.
After George Miller screened some footage at SXSW film festival. A man stood up and asked: “How the hell did you film that!?” That man was none other than director Robert Rodriguez.
Over 80% of the effects seen in the film are real practical effects, stunts, make-up and sets. CGI was used sparingly. Mainly to enhance the Namibian landscape, remove stunt rigging. Also for Charlize Theron‘s left hand which in the film is a prosthetic arm.
In the week’s most expertly timed announcement, director George Miller has let Twitch know that he’s shooting not one but two Mad Max films back to back. With an eye on “rapid release.” It’s a reboot of the post-apocalyptic franchise that laid the foundation for Mel Gibson’s eventual rise to the top of the fellatio-demanding food chain. It will star Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron, and pick up shortly after the events of 1985’s Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. Miller says the next film and its sequel will be titled Mad Max: Fury Road and Mad Max: Furiosa, respectively, which suggests the second part will find Max traversing the wasteland in a sporty Italian hatchback.

Outtakes from Keith & the Girl and Nicko’s brush with fame. My tale of visiting the Neverland Ranch and other such stuff. Plus we review “Alienator.”
To keep the shows under an hour, sometimes I pull stories from different shows. If they are good, I saved them. If I put them on Audacity they get erased. These two stories have been saved. I’ve been meaning to add them. Sometimes I add them to the very end of the show. Here I talk about going to the Neverland Ranch, one guest admits to borrowing cable TV and Nicko talks about befriending Bil Hicks and Stephan Fry.
Then we review “Alienator” – this week’s offering at “Horrible Movie Night” in Hollywood. It’s an old show that’s on the website still but not on Itunes. Since it’s being featured this Saturday night, I thought it would be a good time to replay it. It features HMN’s John Mathot and Eric “Danger” Nyenhuis. John runs HMN. John’s description of “Alienator” from his website:
Rob Schrab (Sarah Silverman Program, Heat Vision and Jack) joins us to proudly resent “Deadly Prey.” It’s an ultra violent low-budget Rambo rip off. Speaking of rip offs, the star cuts off a bad guy’s arm and beats him with it. It’s a wonderfully flawed film with lots of “WTF” moments.
Download the movie here. Or watch on Youtube below. But whatever you do, Don’t Get Danton! Read More
Tonight LA has a chance to see three crappy cop films. First, friend of the podcast John Mathot presents “Psycho Cop 2.” Not only will “Horrible Movie Night” show the film but the Psycho Cop himself, Bobby Ray Shafer, will attend the show, and participate in the Q & A after the film! Better get your tickets now, or Officer Vickers might run you in!
Or if blond Samurais are more your speed, check out the “Samurai Cop” and
“Hollywood Cop” double feature presented by “Everything is Terrible.” We reviewed the first film in an earlier episode.
(Look below to see how to see it live!)Jan-Michael Vincent stars in “Alienator” a no budget “Terminator” rip off. J-MV sends a female body builder with a “Phantom Of the Opera” mask and a heavy metal freight wig to Earth to capture an escape space criminal. Cheap lasers, not so special, special effects, bad acting and a certain slurring Airwolf makes this a must see/listen to. “Horrible Movie Night” producer Jon Mathot and “Retro Radio Live” co-host Eric “Danger” Nyenhuis join host Adam Spiegelman.
