Our cultural exchange with the boys over at Wax On Wax Lyrical has finally come to fruition! Even though they tried to pull the old Australian waxwozzer on us and post their half of the cultural exchange without telling us, we prevailed. I think.After talking with Owen and Benji via twitter and even doing a podcrawl with them, we realized we don’t really know much about Australia and, being good Americans (except Dave), we just assumed no one in Australia knows about America. So, we proposed a cultural exchange wherein each would watch a movie that reflects something characteristic of that group’s homeland. Except Dave’s.
The movie is about some teenagers trapped in prison camp disguised as a drive in theater.
Honestly, I kind of want to go to Australia a lot. I want to live where these people live:
There are plenty of elements you expect from an Aussie movie. Apocalypses, cars, cars that survived the apocalypse, super hot girls,
The climax is climactic,
the movie is fun, the soundtrack is amazing, and we loved every minute of it. Thanks to Owen and Benji for playing with us. Go listen to their podcast and tweet at them at @WaxOnLyrical
After you’re finished listening to our podcast and theirs, head over to our audio commentary tracks page to listen to us watch the movie and then, go outside and play. Just remember to bring a spare set of tires.
