Hey You Geeks #43: A Trip Down ‘Fury Road’

Reading Time: 1 minute

HYG43

This week on Hey You Geeks, we’re breaking down what we’re considering the best movie of 2015 thus far; Mad Max: Fury Road. We talk about everything from Fury Road‘s storied production, feminist themes and how it stacks up to the first three films to its box-office performance and George Miller’s direction. Our talk about box-office inevitably leads into a conversation regarding the controversial comments actor Simon Pegg made last week regarding superhero movies and geek cinema. We dig deep to understand his point of view and predict how we see the future of the film industry changing in the next few years. Where do you see the industry going? Share your thoughts on that and Fury Road in the comments.

Hey You Geeks is a podcast where geeks of all kinds are invited to celebrate and criticize all that we love with a sense of unapologetic nerdiness. From film to TV, comics to gaming, we’re here to look forwards and back to the greatest and sometimes worst geek culture has to offer.
