Friday Watch Party: Mad Max - Beyond Thunderdome

Last week we lost world-famous musician and performer Tina Turner.  

Turner didn't appear in that many films, but she was in a starring role in the least likely of films, the third Mad Max installment, Beyond Thunderdome.  She plays the mayor-figure and matriarch of a town in post-apocalyptic Australia, and she has magnificent earrings.  

Opinions vary on Turner in the film, but we've been team-Aunty Entity since we literally jumped into a van full of kids being taken to the movie at the local cinema.  But this is also, simply, a pro-Tina Turner household.

Day:  June 2, 2023
Time:  8:30 Central, 6:30 Pacific
Runtime:  107 minutes
Cost:  $4.29 HD / $3.79 SD

I'm realizing I saw this when I was 10, and, hoo-boy.  My parents were paying zero attention to what I was watching as a kid.

Memorial Day 2023


Here in the U.S., it's Memorial Day, a day in which Americans remember those who died in service to the country and a reminder of the sacrifice many have made.
