Mad Max Minute - Tolkien (2019)
56:09Nicholas Hoult lived, he died, and now he lives again, not as a Warboy, but as prolific fantasy author J.R.R. Tolkien. Watch as young Tolkien navigates English society at the turn of the twentieth century, losing his mother to illness, living with a wealthy benefactor, and enrolling in a boarding school. He finds fellowship with a group of boys who share his appreciation for art and falls in love with Edith, played by Lily Collins. Their courtship is interrupted by Tolkien’s enrollment at Oxford, but once there he’s able to expand his love of language and storytelling.

Mad Max Minute - Long Shot (2019)
53:58In the wasteland, Charlize Theron portrayed the fearsome and courageous Imperator Furiosa, but this time around she trades the mechanical arm and war rig for the political power and ambition of Charlotte Field, Secretary of State.

Will she be able to rally enough international support for her environmental initiatives while outmaneuvering political rivals? In the realm of Politics, everything hurts, so pick up what you can and run.
Mad Max Minute - Fist of the North Star (1986)
57:27My life fades, the vision dims. All that remains are memories. I remember a time of chaos, ruined dreams, this wasted land. But most of all, I remember the Fist of the North Star: the man we called Kenshiro. This time around we honor a listener request from one of our $5/month Patrons and sit down to watch one of the seminal works of post-apocalyptic animated media. Toyoo Ashida’s vision of Buronson and Tetsuo Hara’s story of a man gifted with fabulous cosmic power and the violent forces that swirl around him. It’s our first foray into the world of anime, will we come out unscathed or are we already dead?
Mad Max Minute - Legend (2015)
48:48With the dust settling from the whirlwind of Mad Max Fury Road, we take a trip back to London in the 1960’s where The Kray Twins are poised to take control of the city’s underworld. You’re not seeing double, Tom Hardy stars as both Reggie and Ron Kray, one charming and calculating and the other a lit fuse ready to blow. As they battle rival gangs and make deals with the American Mafia, the brothers must balance their personal relationships with the demands of running a criminal organization and staying one step ahead of the law. Do they have what it takes to become legends?
Fury Road Minute 120 - The End of a Furious Road
53:25We’ve run out of Mad Max Fury Road to talk about, so in this ultimate episode of the podcast, we take some time to talk about what it’s been like producing this project. We also discuss our final rankings for the series, the hopes we have for the future of the series, and also some fun observations about the podcast as a whole. Most importantly, THANK YOU to everyone who has listened.
Fury Road Minute Bonus Episode - George Miller
1:07:37Three years, four movies, and several months of emails all come down to this: Rick sits down for a video call with academy award-winning director, writer, and producer, George Miller. We talk about applying music theory to film making, treating lore like an iceberg, and how a pig and penguin helped shape the world of Mad Max: Fury Road. This episode would not have been possible without the help of George’s executive assistant, Rachael who generously gave us a window of time in George’s busy schedule.
Fury Road Minute 119 - Back in black and chrome
48:02Following Mad Max Fury Road’s release in theaters and subsequent success at the box office, George Miller told interviewers that he, at one point, wanted to release the film in black and white, similar to the rough copy used by composers when scoring a film. A year later, the Black and Chrome edition was released in theaters. Today we abandon color to watch that version of the movie.
