Join as we discuss the low-budget Canadian indie film from 2015 called Turbo Kid. The film is set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland of 1997, which obviously means the film is chock-full of 80s references and homages especially the synthesizer heavy soundtrack and the costumes. We discuss our thoughts on the nostalgia as well as our thoughts on the setting and characters. We also discuss the paper thin plot and what we think of the film's ridiculous gore. We discuss why we think the film works, even though it may not be an objectively good film.
