Description

Rewatchability is a comedic pop-culture nostalgia podcast hosted by J.M. McNab, Rob LaRonde, and Blain Watters. It is produced independently in Toronto, ON.

The show began in the summer of 2011. In 2012 it was profiled by The A.V. Club and in 2015 our podcast appeared on CBC Radio’s Podcast Playlist. The aim of the show is to re-watch movies and television shows from when we were younger, and review them in an interesting and hopefully humourous way. Hopefully.

Rewatchability contains coarse language and immature subject matter; our main goal is to be funny, so please don’t take anything too seriously… especially you Ghost Dad.

Take up thine earpods, valiant knight, for today we quest for DRAGONHEART! Look upon our hero, Dennis Quaid, as he ventures to slay his vocal chords with a contrived growl!

With the world gone crazy we escape into a good story with STRANGER THAN FICTION! Starring Will Ferrell as a man who becomes aware he is a character in someone else's novel, and Emma Thompson as the author who can't figure out how to kill Will Ferrell, Stranger Than Fiction is a quirky metafictional drama with chocolate rom-com chips. Also starring Maggie Gyllenhall and Dustin Hoffman, this movie suffered under comparison to Charlie Kaufman's films, but how does it hold up under a fresh light?

417- 12 MONKEYS

417- 12 MONKEYS

2020-03-1801:00:43

The world has been ravaged by a deadly virus and humanity forced from the surface of the Earth. Since those things also happen in 12 MONKEYS, it seems like an appropriate moment to revisit Terry Gilliam's 1995 sci-fi drama. Based on Chris Marker's La Jetée, 12 Monkeys tells the story of a man who is sent back in time to get information on the plague that wiped out mankind. Starring Bruce Willis, Madelaine Stowe and Brad Pitt, this movie fascinated us when we were younger, but how does it hold up today?

2020-03-0401:15:09

Get your magic ticket ready, we're going beyond the screen with LAST ACTION HERO! Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Austin O'Brien, Last Action Hero is the story of a boy who spends way too much time in a creepy old movie theatre and ends up getting sucked into the world of a movie. Also starring Mercedes Ruehl, F. Murray Abraham, Charles Dance and hey isn't that Tina Turner?

415- THE CELL

2020-02-2601:01:06

Polish your dermal piercings, this week we suspend ourselves in THE CELL! Starring Jennifer (J.Lo) Lopez, and is there really anything else that you need to know? Actually, there is because this movie is nuts. Directed by Tarsem Singh and starring Vinces D'Onofrio and Vaughn, this movie is a visually resplendent thriller with a dark beating heart, soaring on the wings of a sparrow. Also featuring Dylan Baker and Dean Norris, who it wouldn't be a sci-fi thriller without, this fever dream of a film confused and astounded us when we were younger, but how does it hold up now?

Tune that guitar, this week we crank it to 11 to rock out with JOSIE AND THE PUSSYCATS! Starring Rachel Leigh Cook, Rosario Dawson and Tara Reid, it's the classic story of three young girls who just want to rock the world and how they get manipulated by the corporate pop music machine into selling junk. Also starring Alan Cumming, Parker Posey and Gabriel Mann, this movie surprised us with its humor and subversiveness, but how does it hold up now?

Run, don't walk, to your earbuds because this week we're chasing down CATCH ME IF YOU CAN! Directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Tom "Won't You Be My Neighbor" Hanks and Leo "I saved a guy from drowning once" DiCaprio, CMIYC tells the somewhat true story of con man Frank Abegnale as he forges checks and lies his way through the American Dream. Also starring Christopher Walken and Amy Adams, Catch Me If You can mixes the thrills of a classic crime caper with the feeling of never being good enough for your dad to be proud of you. We loved it when we were seventeen claiming to be thirty, but how does it hold up now that we're actually old? Anne T. Donahue joins us in the studio. Buy her book!

412- AIRHEADS

2020-02-0501:01:57

Throw up the horns, this week we get heavy with AIRHEADS!  I'm talking Brendan Fraser on lead, Steve Buscemi humping the low-end and Adam "Enter Sandman" Sandler pounding the skins like a madman, this movie rocks more than any uncut gem! It's the story of three struggling rockers who will do anything to be heard, including holding an entire radio station hostage. Also starring Michael McKean, Joe Mantegna, Judd Nelson, Chris Farley and Ernie Hudson, this movie rocked us to our very cores when we were younger, but how does it hold up now?

411- ARGO with Sina Rahmani

411- ARGO with Sina Rahmani

2020-01-2901:08:13

As the Oscars draw near and we prepare to bestow statuettes upon the movies that deserve them most, we look back to ARGO, the 2012 Academy Award Winner for Best Picture. Directed (and starring!!!) Ben Affleck. Also featuring Victor Garber, Bryan Cranston, John Goodman, Alan Arkin and every other recognizable person Ben Affleck could call in for a favor, Argo tells the very real story about how, during the revolution, six diplomats were ferried out of the country by pretending they were Canadian filmmakers. Sounds thrilling, eh! We were dazzled by all the celebrities in 70's wigs, but how does it hold up now? Be sure to check out Sina's show THE EAST IS A PODCAST!

Ensign! Chart a course for STAR TREK: FIRST CONTACT! In anticipation of PICARD, the new Star Trek series revisiting the Next Generation world, we slingshot around the sun to re-experience what some would say is the best TNG movie. Directed by frickin' Riker (Jonathan Frakes) and starring Patrick Stewart and the rest of the crew (except Wesley Crusher), our tricorders show readings of extreme action with peripheral awe and wonder. But has the time space continuum tarnished the hull of this mighty ship?  Be sure to check out JM's PICARD-themed podcast EARL GRAY, HOT TAKE!

Lawyer up, 'cause court is in session with MY COUSIN VINNY! Starring Oscar Winner Joe Pesci, Oscar winner Marisa Tomei and non-Oscar winner Ralph Maccio, it's the story of a couple of city slickers who get more than they bargained for when roll into the South to defend two innocent kids accused of murder! Also starring Lane Smith and Fred Gwynne, this movie was found guilty of being hilarious. But how will hold up under appeals?

408- BRICK

408- BRICK

2020-01-0857:26

New year same game. Prick your ears up at this morsel. BRICK. High school noir, ya dig? Rian Johnson's big debut and everyone was there for the ball. Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Emilie de Ravin. Lukas Haas. Names. Faces. Clues. You with me? Then let's dance. A lot of folks have it out for Johnson for mucking up their space stories. But word is his "Knives Out' is a sharp number. The question is, does "Brick" stack up as evidence of his filmmaking mastery? Or does it reveal him for nothing better than a genre-mashing hack?

We hope that you have an amazing holiday filled with fun, friends and family and we look forward to rewatching more of our favorite and used-to-be-favorite movies in 2020! In lieu of another Christmas movie, this week we talk about THE TRUMAN SHOW! It's the movie where Jim Carrey thinks everyone's watching him, and this time it's true! Also starring Ed Harris, Laura Linney, Noah Emmerich and Paul Giamatti, this movie seemed to blur the lines between reality and fiction, but how does it hold up in today's entertainment saturated world?

Christmas is just a short week away and gear us up we spend some time with THE HOLIDAY! Written slash directed by Nancy Meyers and starring Kate Winslet, Cameron Diaz, Jude Law and let's not forget (because he sure did) Jack Black, The Holiday is a delightful romp which follows two heartbroken women, an American and a Brit, who exchange houses and find love where they least expect it. Film writer/ programmer Katie Connell joins the festivities this week. This movie warmed the cockles of hearts in Christmas 2006, but how does it hold up now?

Starring 'lil Mara Wilson, Richard Attenborough, Elizabeth Perkins and dreamy Dylan McDermott! It's the story of a little girl who refuses to believe in Santa unless she gets exactly what she wants for Christmas. If only we'd known how easy that would work.

2019-12-0401:07:20

Ring the bells, the holidays are here! And in the holiday spirit we present to you THE FAMILY MAN starring Nicholas Cage, Tea Leoni and Don Cheadle. It's the story of a rich, lonely, possibly psychotic man who gets a glimpse of what his life would have been like if he'd have a family. Sounds heartwarming right? Wrong. So wrong. This movie made us promise ourselves to value family over money and material possessions, but how does it hold up now? Listen, subscribe and rate us on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or Stitcher.
