We’ve been teasing our A.I. episode for a while now, and we are looking forward to recording it; however we’ll all need to wait a couple weeks longer.
Because, as I said in this episode, I saw a movie recently that I just had to talk about… and I knew that Vince had been waiting as well.
The movie is Mad Max: Fury Road. It is one of Vince’s favourite movies as of late, however I was far more critical of it. It’s not enough to have kick-ass women in an adventure film. I would also like a story; something which Mad Max: Fury Road is sorely lacking.
This was a fun episode to record, not just because of the surprise for Vince, but also because Mad Max: Fury Road has become more than the sum of its parts, thanks to the vocal proponents and opponents of certain aspects of the film.
Luckily, neither Vince nor I are so insecure in our manhood that we’re intimidated by fantastic female acting in an action movie. And while Vince was more than sated with the film, I wanted so much more. In a way, that’s a testament to the film’s “lore”, as well as the strong characters.
On the other hand, it also means that for me at least, the film was lacking.
Let us know what you thought of it.
