Favoriting March 20, 2018: Mad Max Special Pt. 1: PAUL JOHNSTONE (Cundalini of Mad Max)
Paul Johnstone who portrayed Cundalini in George Miller's "Mad Max" joins Devon to discuss his experiences as the mustachioed, Lolita heart-shaped glasses-wearing biker in Toecutter's menacing motorcycle gang in the 1979 Australian dystopic action film which kicked off the franchise. Paul got his start in musical theater in Australia's first productions of "Jesus Christ Superstar" and "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" in the 1970s and continued on as a touring/session drummer and vocalist for Australia bands such as The Models, Straw Dogs and The Dexters, working today as an in-demand voice actor. Devon will debut the once thought lost George Miller-rejected "End Credits" that Paul recorded for the film with Stewart D'Arrietta, David Cafe and George's brother Bill Miller. "That there is Cundalini...and Cundalini wants his hand back!"

i never saw mad max until 2010ish and it seemed kind of hokey to me the. good yes, but still hokey.

so weird to have only recently heard the original dialog to Mad Max, after watching the US cut VHS tape non-stop from high school on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:17pm

People should have a look at the movie Stone as well, would be obscure in USA. www.imdb.com...

never heard a New Zealand native speak of it with anything but sincere love. must be quite a place.

I’ve avoided Mel Gibson’s films of late due to his rather unpleasant views on a number of topics, but I’m really wanting to see Mad Max again now.

screw him, really. if it's enjoyable work, let's see it!

Devon E. Levins:

Thanks All for swimming back to Morricone Island post marathon. And special thanks, of course, to all who pledged to Morricone Island specifically!! We couldn't do it without you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31pm
Rich in Washington:

I don't even know if you can get that badly dubbed US version if you wanted to now.
Curiously, one of my local broadcast TV channels played Mad Max a few years ago and it would cut back and forth between the dubbed version and the original version, I think in order to censor something not suitable for regular TV? I am not sure.
  7:31pm
David in London:

@Linda Lee. Yeah, I generally don’t worry too much about such things, but I find him so repulsive now that I just steered clear. But you’re right, time to just do it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm
Rich in Washington:

I like the first two Max films, but by Thunderdome, Mel's ego seemed really swollen and he looked extra ridiculous in that wig.
Avatar 7:33pm
Linda Lee:

i've been steering clear since Braveheart ~ mainly because his films haven't interested me, but also because he's a repulsive person.

David in London:

Yeah, his filmography has provided pretty slim pickings of late, it’s true. I appreciated the nuttiness of Apocalypto though.

i think what -really- turned me off was his "Flailing of the Christ" and the sick following it attracted

i liked apocolypto. not historically accurate perhaps but good adventure.

last time i saw it was on a telemundo type station - it didn't really matter, there's so little dialog.

Dale and David: THANK YOU. I thought Apocalypto was a really great movie and nobody has ever agreed with me.

that's enough for me, Fox. i'll check it out.

Man, Devon! You have such great interviews!

Apocalypto is a good movie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45pm
dale:

yes - total adrenaline from the beginning.
Avatar 7:46pm
Fox:

I think Apocalypto suffered in the box office basically because nobody wanted to like the film directed by jewish slur ranting and "Passion of the Christ" era Mel.

gee ya think

that's called 'box office poison' ..

These were submitted as end credits for "The Road Warrior"? Or for the 2nd movie?

Fox, the ‘twist’ ending was really effective I thought.

Bit of a spirit of The Ramones creeping in there perhaps.

It would've been a good selection for a teaser/trailer for the movie, though!

I am just hearing this now in July 2019. Been a Mad Max junkie since I was 11. This and Road Warrior were easily the two most influential movies in my life.. And to hear this on archive.. Thank you!!!!
