Movie Meltdown: Warriors… Check your Brain at the Door
Movie Meltdown – Warriors of the Wasteland
This episode we discuss Enzo G. Castellari’s 1983 post-apocalyptic “classic” Warriors of the Wasteland aka The New Barbarians.
And as we strap on our bubble armor, we also mention… As Above so Below, Skinamarink, Please Don’t Destroy: The Treasure of Foggy Mountain, Once Upon a Deadpool, bad smoke effects, George Eastman, the unnecessary dome, George Miller, extra tubes n’ stuff, A Fistful of Dollars, VHS, there’s secretly a Matt Damon hiding somewhere in your movie, questionable theme music, the Starscream of the group, three different cameras shooting at three different film speeds, a weird creepy kid, the most awkward shadow sex, floppy shoulders, no backstory, a very hilly area outside of Rome, if Indiana Jones was a horror movie, Fred Savage, wearing camouflage in the 80s and the golf carts from hell.
Spoiler Alert: Full spoilers for Warriors of the Wasteland, I mean if you can actually ruin this movie?
“Again that’s what I love about these movies. Like, half the time none of this shit makes sense… but you just kind of just keep going with it.”
