Turbo Kid & Mad Max 2 – Film Club 7 -Damien’s Choice

In this episode, Damien’s choice, the panel discusses 80’s apocalyptic wastelands as seen in these two films. These are two movies that fit the bill. Mad Max fans marvel at the engine revving action of Mel Gibson while more modern adventurists enjoy the comical bmx savages of Turbo Kid. These are great movies, this is an equally great discussion! check it out and drop us a comment. Links to the host and panelists are at the bottom of this post.
