Description

Drawing on a decade-plus friendship whose roots stretch back to their film-obsessed student days, Gali and Devlin cast an eye backwards to the movies that kickstarted their love of film. In their Throwback series, each will take turns picking a title that they consider seminal to their youth, and watch again to determine whether they wasted their precious childhoods sitting in the dark with these VHS tapes, or if their movie touchstones still hold up today.

NOBODY BEATS ME IN THE KITCHEN. Welcome back to the Bargain Bin, as we go full steam ahead on the 1995 Steven Seagal-starring choo-choo beat ‘em up sequel Under Siege 2: Dark Territory.Seagal reprises his role as the stoic chef/ass-kicker Casey Ryback, accompanying his snarky teenage niece Sarah (Katherine Heigl) on a cross country train journey to her father’s graveside. When the train is taken over by a big ol’ crew of baddies led by eccentric nerdlinger Travis Dane for the purposes of using a space laser to make earthquakes (really), Ryback is in a race against time to punch literally everyone before Dane can blow up the Pentagon.Intergalactic voyeurism, coconut explosives, Looney Tunes death scenes and 60 minute, rubber-and-leather-bondage CD-ROMs. All the way from South Korea, Matt once again joins Gali & Devlin as they venture together in to Dark Territory. Will they rediscover an action classic, or will this be a train wreck in more ways than one? If you have any questions, comments or ideas for future episodes you can contact us on Twitter @rewindmoviecast, @galithegreek (Gali) and @QuillLicker (Devlin) and @scariousartists (Matt).  Check out the website rewindmoviecast.com/ for more information about the podcast.  If you liked the episode, please rate, share and review on whichever platform you are using to help us grow the show.Thank you for listening.
Welcome to our series Pulling Focus, where each of our hosts introduces the other to a personally beloved film which they feel has been overlooked or underrated. This time, Gali encourages Devlin to FINALLY sit down and watch the 2000 Michael Douglas lit-com Wonder Boys, from director Curtis Hanson.Michael Douglas’ Grady Tripp is a borderline burnt-out literature professor coasting on the reputation of his debut novel while deep in the mire of failing to produce its follow-up. His rocky romance with Frances McDormand’s university chancellor is further complicated by the appearance of his chaotic editor (Robert Downey Jr.), a troubled and earnest young upstart student in his lit. class (Tobey Maguire), and a blind, surly bulldog named Poe.With a cast littered with Marvel movie alumni, a change-of-pace performance from Douglas, and a reputation as a box office bomb, has Gali unearthed a hidden gem for Devlin, or have its charms faded over the years? If you have any questions, comments or ideas for future episodes you can contact us on Twitter @rewindmoviecast, @galithegreek (Gali) and @QuillLicker (Devlin and @PatrickWaggett (Patrick).Check out the website rewindmoviecast.com/ for more information about the podcast.If you liked the episode, please rate, share and review on whichever platform you are using to help us grow the podcast.Thank you for listening.

I WANT SOME BUTTS! Gali has picked out Tony Scott's magnum opus of fighter jet machismo, 1986’s Top Gun, for this Throwback episode.Maverick loose cannon Pete “Maverick” Mitchell (Tom Cruise) gets his shot to be the best of the best at the elite Top Gun academy, where he competes in spectacular aerial combat exercises against Val Kilmer's stone cold Ice Man while trying to attract the attentions of his instructor, Kelly McGillis' Charlie.Harassment via karaoke, faceless Commie baddies and a guitar riff so sweet they play it 36 times - will Gali convince Devlin and Patrick to join him in the Danger Zone, or are they entering a flat spin of nostalgia before crashing spectacularly in to the mountains of cliché?  If you have any questions, comments or ideas for future episodes you can contact us on Twitter @rewindmoviecast, @galithegreek (Gali) and @QuillLicker (Devlin and @PatrickWaggett (Patrick).Check out the website rewindmoviecast.com/ for more information about the podcast.If you liked the episode, please rate, share and review on whichever platform you are using to help us grow the podcast.Thank you for listening. 
On this episode, Devlin introduces Gali to one of his favourites, and offers an introduction to a film which has flown under the radar over the last few years: Lynne Ramsay's 1999 feature debut Ratcatcher.James, a sensitive young boy on the cusp of adolescence, tries to navigate the rubbish strewn-streets of an East Glasgow housing estate in dustman-strike-ravaged 1973. Racked with a level of guilt for which he is emotionally unprepared after the death of a friend, he seeks an escape from his impoverished surroundings that seems impossible to achieve.We talk about the formative works and influences of one of the most interesting filmmakers working today, as Devlin finally forces Gali to watch a film he's been recommending for 15 years. Will it be worth the wait? If you have any questions, comments or ideas for future episodes you can contact us on Twitter @rewindmoviecast, @galithegreek (Gali) and @QuillLicker (Devlin and @PatrickWaggett (Patrick).Check out the website rewindmoviecast.com/ for more information about the podcast and written reviews.If you liked the episode, please rate, share and review on whichever platform you are using to help us grow the podcast.Thank you for listening.
BLESS YOUR BEAUTIFUL HIIIIIIIIDE! Patrick is back, and he brought the rootin'est, rootin'est, barn-danciest rip-roarin’ Western musical Seven Brides For Seven Brothers.Large bearded man Adam rides into town to find himself a wife to bring back to his frontier ranch, but “forgets” to tell new bride Milly about his six also large brothers. While she teaches them proper manners, Adam has a different scheme to get them all married off.Multiple jaunty kidnappings ensue, replete with spectacular dance numbers, weird lyrics about sleeping with livestock, and colour-coded fancy shirts. Will Devlin and Gali thank Patrick for introducing them to the show, or is it all a soft-shoe-shuffle too far? If you have any questions, comments or ideas for future episodes you can contact us on Twitter @rewindmoviecast, @galithegreek (Gali) and @QuillLicker (Devlin and @PatrickWaggett (Patrick).Check out the website rewindmoviecast.com/ for more information about the podcast and written reviews.If you liked the episode, please rate, share and review on whichever platform you are using to help us grow the podcast.Thank you for listening. 
きりきりきり! On this Throwback, first time Rewinder and good friend Matt joins us all the way from South Korea to discuss his first brush with Takashi Miike’s seminal romantic drama-turned-nightmare fuel Audition.Lonely Tokyo widower Aoyama turns to an old friend in his quest to find a new wife to share his life with. His idea? An audition for a new movie, where Aoyama can take his pick of the applicants – a foregone conclusion once he sets his sights on the shy, beautiful, sensitive Asami.And then everything turns horrible. I’m sure you know this by now, the film is 20 years old. But if not, yeah, spoilers. But has this infamous provocation retained its capacity to shock, or has it aged about as well as a dog bowl full of sick? Join Gali, Devlin and Matt as they open up the mystery sack. If you have any questions, comments or ideas for future episodes you can contact us on Twitter @rewindmoviecast, @galithegreek (Gali) and @QuillLicker (Devlin and @scariousartists (Matt).Check out the website rewindmoviecast.com/ for more information about the podcast.If you liked the episode, please rate, share and review on whichever platform you are using to help us grow the show.Thank you for listening.

Among them are alapsed kung fu fighter of indeterminate religion, a cocky Hollywood action star, and, um, somesort of cop maybe?Quips, brawls, styrofoam palaces, and oh god so much techno.

TATANKA! Devlin takes us on a Throwback to the never-ending Sunday afternoons of his childhood with Kevin Costner’s OSCAR-winning frontier epic DANCES WITH WOLVES.Wounded Civil War soldier John Dunbar’s unusual act of battlefield heroism allows him to choose his next posting, and he elects for a life of seclusion in an abandoned fort at the very edge of civilisation. But his solitude is interrupted when he finds himself drawn in to the local Sioux tribe, whose curiosity and burgeoning friendship has him questioning his allegiances.Discussions on the power of moustache characterization, appropriate fart noises, and inordinate praise for horse acting ensue. Will Gali, Patrick and Devlin share a peace pipe and bask in the magic hour glow of the Dakota plains, or will the war drums boom as opinions are let fly like arrows?

CyberChrist on a bike! A second dip in to the Bargain Bin yields the 1992 virtual reality trip THE LAWNMOWER MAN, starring Pierce Brosnan and Jeff Fahey.Improbably named scientician Dr. Larry Angelo is using this latest technology to increase intelligence, and has the perfect subject in naïve, developmentally challenged stereotype Jobe Smith, a local lawnmower whose new-found powers quickly grow out of control.Murder chimps, shirtless diarising, inconsistent pronunciations of the word “Fahey”, and excessive evaluation of the world’s first cybersex scene: Gali, Devlin and Patrick are strapped in to their gyroscopes and ready to jack in to the neural net. 
GITOUTTATHERE! The Rewind team are taking their first dip in to the Bargain Bin – a new series that takes a break from the Throwbacks to focus on the ubiquitous trash that we’ve passively watched a hundred times and subjecting them to a level of scrutiny that they almost certainly don’t deserve.First up is VOLCANO, a film that confronts the ridiculously implausible idea that 28-year-old Anne Heche would swoon for the granite-hewn furrowed brow that is Tommy Lee Jones. And the almost as implausible idea that a volcano would bubble up in downtown LA.Prepare to get lavabombed with fake science and heavy-handed messages about racism, as the action flows thick and slow, just like the gelatinous lava which is sweeping down Wilshere Blvd. Gali and Devlin jump in with both feet (R.I.P. Stan) and invite you to revel in a good old fashioned ‘90s disaster, in more sense than one.If you have any questions, comments or ideas for future episodes you can contact us on Twitter @rewindmoviecast, @galithegreek (Gali) and @QuillLicker (Devlin and @PatrickWaggett (Patrick).Check out the website rewindmoviecast.com/ for more information about the podcast and written reviews.If you liked the episode, please rate, share and review on whichever platform you are using to help us grow the podcast.Thank you for listening and Merry Christmas.
