Bloody Awesome Movie Podcast: BAMPocalypse Now – Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

Jonathan and Matt are, like the rest of you, in isolation at the moment. Safely ensconced in their own homes across the Atlantic, they decided it was time to do a miniseries of films that feel a little too relatable right now. Not to make light of the scary situation we all currently find ourselves in the midst of, but rather to make this time of contemplation a little more enjoyable. The guys as that you seek out the films or, in some cases, you avoid them and then listen to our mini-sodes.

Watching people horde around supplies and fight for survival feels a bit ominous right now and why it fits into the miniseries.
