madmax7252368.3The maximum force of the future! Welcome to Episode 21 of “Reel Chat” – a podcast that guarantees week in, week out – the “Reel world as we know it.”

On this episode of our “Vintage Vault” retrospective series, host Adam Stolfo is joined by co-host Brose Avard, Andrew McCaskill and Matthew O’Neill to discuss George Miller’s 1979 post-apocalyptic Australian classic – “Mad Max.”

This is the film that set Mel Gibson speeding off toward international action-hero super-stardom. And what better time for the guys to get stuck into the original, with the popular franchise’s fourth entry “Mad Max: Fury Road” (2015) currently in general release.

Join the “Reel Chat” team as we bring you the film’s amazing legacy in Australia (and the rest of the world), it’s minuscule production budget, how the the film had the highest profit-to-cost ratio of any motion picture for 20 years, it’s many A.F.I. awards and nominations, Brian May’s musical score (no, not THAT Brian May), the dubbed American-accent version of the film, it’s new Blu-Ray release, as well as touching on the many wonderful Victorian filming locations (many of which still exist today).
