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.

RUMOUR CONTROL. We’ve crash landed on Fury 161 for the latest installment in our xenomorphic review series LV-RMP, as we reach David Fincher’s divisive and dour 1992 threequel ALIEN3. Controversially stripping Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) of her potential happily ever when both Hicks and Newt are killed when her shuttle plummets out of the sky, our beleaguered heroine finds herself stranded on a godforsaken foundry-turned-prison with a rogues’ gallery of double-Y chromo villains, who have found a very apocalyptic version of Christianity at the back end of the universe. Unfortunately, aside from a terminally tattered Bishop (Lance Henriksen), there is, in fact, another survivor of the accident - a familiar, vicious creature set to wreak havoc on the unarmed and disbelieving inmates. Forming a tentative bond with the mysterious medical officer Clemens (Charles Dance), a grudging mutual respect with the evangelical Dillon (Charles S. Dutton), and butting heads with the officious and ineffectual warden Andrews (Brian Glover), Ripley finds herself once again the only person who can stand between the xenomorph and the shadowy Weyland-Yutani Corporation who wish to get their hands on this perfect organism.Beset by production woes, maligned upon release, and subject to studio interference at every stage, we revisit a film that boasts plenty of positives, not least an intriguing cast of quality British character actors, and the emerging but already identifiable hand of a director who would go on to become one of Hollywood’s most distinctive and exacting. Is this a worthy successor to the landmark films it follows, a deservedly disregarded disaster, or something in between?If you have any questions, comments or ideas for future episodes you can contact us on Twitter @rewindmoviepodcast or @galithegreek(Gali), (@quilllicker (Devlin), (@PatrickWaggett (Patrick) and @mdridley (Matt), and join our Facebook Group at https://www.facebook.com/rewindmoviecast/ or email us at rewindmoviepodcast@gmail.comThank you for listening and if you like the show please press that subscribe button and leave us a little review, MANY THANKS!!!

I like these calm little moments before the storm. Friend of the show Joe returns to discuss a hugely impactful film from his adolescence, Luc Besson’s Gallic 1994 hitman-with-a-heart thriller LEON.When her family is gunned down by a drug-addled, maniacal DEA agent (Gary Oldman), 12 year old Mathilda (Natalie Portman) seeks shelter in the apartment of her shy neighbour Leon (Jean Reno) - unbeknownst to her, a Mafia ‘cleaner’ who lives a monastic life. Reluctantly taking her in, Leon begins training the vulnerable Mathilda, seeing that her desire for revenge is likely to put her in danger without his guidance.An influential and iconic cult movie that introduced audiences to a soon-to-be-huge movie star in the young Portman, a reliable go-to character actor in the soulful Reno, and, to English speaking audiences at least, an entire sub-genre of French action cinema that continues to flourish to this day.Outro Song - 'Moi Lolita' (2000) - AlizeeIf you have any questions, comments or ideas for future episodes you can contact us on Twitter @rewindmoviepodcast or @galithegreek(Gali), (@quilllicker (Devlin), (@PatrickWaggett (Patrick) and @mdridley (Matt), and join our Facebook Group at https://www.facebook.com/rewindmoviecast/ or email us at rewindmoviepodcast@gmail.comThank you for listening and if you like the show please press that subscribe button and leave us a little review, MANY THANKS!!!

Always guess the cliche, and you won't be disappointed. As part of our RErotica series, we’ve slipped under the covers with the incredibly strange 1994 Bruce Willis psycho-sexual thriller Color of Night, directed by veteran Richard Rush.Willis stars as Dr. Bill Capa, a New York therapist reeling from the very dramatic suicide of one of his patients. Retreating to Los Angeles to stay with his unfathomably rich college buddy Bob (Scott Bakula) in his oddly shaped mansion, Bill sits in on a group therapy session, which introduces a rogues gallery of suspects, including Lance Henriksen and Brad Dourif, when Bob gets murdered in his office. While Bill decides to start living in his dead friend’s house, a mysterious and beautiful young woman (Jane March) suddenly floats into his life. But is she all that she appears to be? Obviously not, otherwise this film wouldn’t be 140 minutes long. Mailbox rattlesnakes, mid-coitus steak and pasta dinners, ornate headboards, S&M airbrush art and the frequent deployment of the word ‘daffodil’ as a mental health slur litter the twisty path this film takes to its gonzo denouement. Winner of the Razzie Award for worst film of 1994, and recipient of the lofty accolade of Maxim Magazine’s Best Sex Scene Ever, join us as we try our utmost to untangle this tremendously unusual blip in the career of Bruce Willis.Outro Song - '"Colourblind" (2002) - Darius CampbellIf you have any questions, comments or ideas for future episodes you can contact us on Twitter @rewindmoviepodcast or @galithegreek(Gali), (@quilllicker (Devlin), (@PatrickWaggett (Patrick) and @mdridley (Matt), and join our Facebook Group at https://www.facebook.com/rewindmoviecast/ or email us at rewindmoviepodcast@gmail.comThank you for listening and if you like the show please press that subscribe button and leave us a little review, MANY THANKS!!!

Yeah, just ain't no peace with old Jesse around. You oughta pity my poor wife. In this episode, Patrick has chosen Andrew Dominik’s stately 2007 turn of the century outlaw death march The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.An increasingly paranoid, deeply traumatised Jesse James (Brad Pitt), by now already one of the most famous men in America after a string of daring train and bank robberies, finds himself at the head of a rapidly crumbling gang of misfits. Among the last of his acolytes is the callow new recruit Robert Ford (Casey Affleck), a 19 year old who believes he could do great things alongside the man whose antics he obsessively catalogues from nickel fiction and newspaper clippings. Their attraction and repulsion simmers towards an inevitable conclusion telegraphed right in the title, while the viewer is left to untangle the snake knot of motivations of the doomed pair.Released in a banner year for modern cinema, the film struggled to find the audience that some of its more garlanded, vaguely Western-adjacent peers like No Country For Old Men and There Will Be Blood garnered. Patrick, Devlin and Gali recall their trip to the cinema together almost 15 years ago, and how their relationship with the film has changed, while first-time viewer Matt weighs in with a fresh perspective. Is this an underrepresented gem unfairly overlooked? Or an overcooked stew of underwhelming miserablism?Outro Song - '"Just Like Jesse James" (1989) - CherIf you have any questions, comments or ideas for future episodes you can contact us on Twitter @rewindmoviepodcast or @galithegreek(Gali), (@quilllicker (Devlin), (@PatrickWaggett (Patrick) and @mdridley (Matt), and join our Facebook Group at https://www.facebook.com/rewindmoviecast/ or email us at rewindmoviepodcast@gmail.comThank you for listening and if you like the show please press that subscribe button and leave us a little review, MANY THANKS!!!

Alien (1979) - Episode 58

Alien (1979) - Episode 58

2021-04-1401:58:21

Final report, the commercial starship Nostromo. We return to our LV-RMP series to talk about the seminal sci-fi horror that started it all: Ridley Scott’s imperious 1979 original ALIEN.Our first episode focussed on James Cameron’s 1986 sequel, which was for (almost) all of the panel our first contact with the xenomorph. Now, Gali, Devlin, Patrick and Matt step in to the laser egg room for the origins of the series, as we meet jaded space truckers Captain Dallas (Tom Skerrit), 3rd Officer Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver), Science Officer Ash (Ian Holm), Navigator Lambert (Veronica Cartwright), Executive Officer Kane (John Hurt), and technicians Parker (Yaphet Kotto) and Brett (Harry Dean Stanton) aboard an earthbound mining ship. Diverted by what seems to be a distress beacon, they allow into their house one of the single most terrifying and iconic monsters in cinema history, unleashing a horror that continues to resonate some 4 decades later.We discuss the alchemy behind the film’s creation, to try to unpack how this disparate collection of humans created such a perfect organism, and talk about what the film has meant to us over the years, and how it inspired not just a 40-plus year series but an entire galaxy of imitators and descendents.Outro Song - '"Starlight" (2006) - MuseIf you have any questions, comments or ideas for future episodes you can contact us on Twitter @rewindmoviepodcast or @galithegreek(Gali), (@quilllicker (Devlin), (@PatrickWaggett (Patrick) and @mdridley (Matt), and join our Facebook Group at https://www.facebook.com/rewindmoviecast/ or email us at rewindmoviepodcast@gmail.comThank you for listening and if you like the show please press that subscribe button and leave us a little review, MANY THANKS!!!

SPECIES (1995) - Episode 57

She’s a predator. Her eyes are in front. In this episode, we’ve awarded director Roger Donaldson his 2nd dip in the Bargain Bin with the lascivious 1995 sci-fi horror thriller SPECIES.When indeterminate Government science guy Xavier Fitch (a slumming Ben Kinglsey) decides to follow an intergalactic recipe for alien DNA, he may have inadvertently sown the seeds of the destruction of mankind, as his creation blossoms in to the statuesque Sil, played by newcomer Natasha Henstridge. She’s on the prowl for a mate, scouring Los Angeles for fellas to fornicate with so she can propagate her...species, potentially replacing us as the apex predators on Earth. In response, Fitch collects a ragtag group led by lethargic freelance hired gun Press (Michael Madsen) to hunt her down before she can get down. Bone trains, biomechanical boobs and bewildering acting choices ensue as Gali, Devlin and Matt look back at a bona fide box office hit whose charms may have been obvious to ‘90s teen boys, but do they endure today?Outro Song - '"Gimme!

What do you say we cut the CHIT-CHAT, A-HOLE?! Or not, as the case may be, as the gang gets together for a listener request episode and discusses Michael Bay’s incendiary Simpson/Bruckheimer action landmark THE ROCK.Chemical superfreak FBI expert Stanley Goodspeed (Nicolas Cage, kicking off his unlikely but lucrative action star run) is drafted in to advise when disgruntled former Black Ops specialist General Francis X. Hummel (Ed Harris) swipes a pile of experimental rockets and takes control of Alcatraz Prison, threatening to vaporise San Francisco if his ransom demands for restitution for his fallen comrades isn’t met. Enter the only man to successfully break out of the infamous institution - British spy John Mason (Sean Connery), whose unique knowledge of the layout leads Goodspeed and a crew of special forces in for a rescue mission that results in much patented Bayhem.With thanks to listener Louis Naum, Gali, Devlin, Patrick & Matt head to the slammer to discuss the halcyon days of the mid-90s actioner, where brash and brawny bros crafted unapologetically brain-bypassing spectacles. But has the film aged like a fine vintage Connery, or is this missile a dud?Outro Song - '"Jailbird" (1994) - Primal ScreamIf you have any questions, comments or ideas for future episodes you can contact us on Twitter @rewindmoviepodcast or @galithegreek(Gali), (@quilllicker (Devlin) and @mdridley (Matt) and join our Facebook Group at https://www.facebook.com/rewindmoviecast/ or email us at rewindmoviepodcast@gmail.comThank you for listening and if you like the show please press that subscribe button and leave us a little review, MANY THANKS!!!

“That's murder, kid.” We’re wallowing in the seamy, seedy and sleazy side of cinema with a new RErotica series. Following our delve into the Sharon Stone classic Basic Instinct, we’re back with another foray into a...formative film experience for several of our panel - John McNaughton’s nefarious, naughty 1998 neo-noir Wild Things. Popular high school guidance counsellor Sam Lombardo (Matt Dillon) is accused of sexual assault by two students - imperiously wealthy society princess Kelly Van Ryan (Denise Richards) and twitchy trailer park denizen Suzie Toller (Neve Campbell). A dizzying array of double-crosses and betrayals follows as loose cannon cop Ray Duquette (Kevin Bacon) ignores his superiors’ instructions and pursues the seemingly closed case.An infamous late-night TV classic of the 90s, our ostensibly more mature gang look to see if there’s more to enjoy beyond its more infamous scenes. You know the ones. Join Gali, Devlin, Patrick & Matt as they take a trip to wealthy Blue Bay for a head-rush cocktail of teen trash, black comedy and twisty thriller.Outro Song - "Given the Dog a Bone" (1980) by AC/DCIf you have any questions, comments or ideas for future episodes you can contact us on Twitter @rewindmoviepodcast or @galithegreek(Gali), (@quilllicker (Devlin), (@PatrickWaggett (Patrick) and @mdridley (Matt), and join our Facebook Group at https://www.facebook.com/rewindmoviecast/ or email us at rewindmoviepodcast@gmail.comThank you for listening and if you like the show please press that subscribe button and leave us a little review, MANY THANKS!!!

Is that you, John Wayne? Is this me? Today’s choice comes courtesy of Matt, who has picked Stanley Kubrick’s 1987 Vietnam nightmare Full Metal Jacket. Smart-mouthed recruit Pvt. Joker (Matthew Modine), as he’s quickly named by his ruthless new drill instructor (R. Lee Ermey), arrives with his fellow recruits at Parris Island for a hellacious training session. The main target of the instructor’s ire, the clumsy and ill-prepared Pvt. Pyle (Vincent D’Onofrio), puts a brutal full stop on this section, before we are whisked off to the frontline with Joker, now a correspondent with a military magazine. Bullets and bodies ensue.Joining Pvt. Ridley in the trenches, Gali, Devlin and Patrick discuss the tremendous task of transforming an East London gas works into a theatre of war, the unusual bipartite structure of the film, and Kubrick’s famously exacting directorial style. Outro Song - '"War" (1970) - Edwin StarrPlease check out the Mark Milsome Foundation - https://www.markmilsomefoundation.com/ This foundation was inspired by the achievements, character and unique nature of our respected friend and colleague, Mark Milsome who was killed whilst filming a car stunt in Ghana in November 2017.If you have any questions, comments or ideas for future episodes you can contact us on Twitter @rewindmoviepodcast or @galithegreek(Gali), (@quilllicker (Devlin) and @mdridley (Matt) and join our Facebook Group at https://www.facebook.com/rewindmoviecast/ or email us at rewindmoviepodcast@gmail.comThank you for listening and if you like the show please press that subscribe button and leave us a little review, MANY THANKS!!!

Mind if I do a J? We’re drifting along with a tumbling tumbleweed to the City of Angels for an encounter with The Dude in the Coen Brothers’ shambling stoner noir comedy classic The Big Lebowski.The Dude, AKA Jeffrey Lebowski, finds his simple life of bowling, dairy-based cocktails and copious weed intake upended by a case of mistaken identity rug-peeing. Seeking restitution from his ornery millionaire namesake, The Dude is thrown into a kidnapping plot involving nihilist techno bands, strongly vaginal performance artists, stonewalling teenagers, suave pornographers and fascist Police chiefs. Aided/hindered by his hair-trigger Vietnam vet buddy Walter, severed toes and weaponised marmots ensue, with iconic performances from Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi and more. First time Rewinder and fellow film school buddy Joe introduces us to a film that is among the most influential and beloved from his formative years. Alongside Gali, Devlin and Matt, the gang chat about a once-ambivalently received oddity that flourished into a full-blown religion. Way to go Donnie!Outro Song - '"Lookin' out My Back Door" (1970) - Creedance Clearwater RevivalIf you have any questions, comments or ideas for future episodes you can contact us on Twitter @rewindmoviepodcast or @galithegreek(Gali), (@quilllicker (Devlin) and @mdridley (Matt) and join our Facebook Group at https://www.facebook.com/rewindmoviecast/ or email us at rewindmoviepodcast@gmail.comThank you for listening and if you like the show please press that subscribe button and leave us a little review, MANY THANKS!!!

We’re travelling back to the fading embers of the Hollywood Golden Age with John Huston’s 1961 elegiac lament The Misfits, written by legendary playwright Arthur Miller for his then-wife Marilyn Monroe, who stars alongside “The King of Hollywood” Clark Gable, Montgomery Clift, Eli Wallach and Thelma Ritter.Monroe stars as Roslyn, a recent divorcee who finds herself unmoored in Reno, Nevada and drifting in to the orbit of aging cowboy charmer Gay (Gable) and temperamental mechanic/pilot Guido (Wallach). The triangle becomes an unsteady rhombus when they pick up punch-drunk rodeo rider Perce (Clift), and head out into the wilderness outside of the city to hunt for mustang. A monochrome, melancholy mood piece, it was a financial flop on its release, and several of its stars and creative team held the film in disregard, while others considered it among their best work.A film marked by tragedy, this features the final completed performances of both Monroe and Gable, who sadly died only days after filming concluded, and also marked one of Clift’s final films. Dissolving marriages, dependencies on drugs and alcohol, and fractious tempers marked a tortuous shoot, but one that resulted in a film that this episode’s film picker Devlin holds a great deal of affection for. Will first-time viewers Gali and Matt, and 2nd time viewer Patrick, share his enthusiasm, or will it all be too sad to bear?Outro Song - '"Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys" (1975) by Ed BruceIf you have any questions, comments or ideas for future episodes you can contact us on Twitter @rewindmoviepodcast or @galithegreek(Gali), (@quilllicker (Devlin), (@PatrickWaggett (Patrick) and @mdridley (Matt), and join our Facebook Group at https://www.facebook.com/rewindmoviecast/ or email us at rewindmoviepodcast@gmail.comThank you for listening and if you like the show please press that subscribe button and leave us a little review, MANY THANKS!!!

FOR FREEEEEEEEE?!?! Merry Christmas listeners, have we got a lump of coal for you! Gali, Devlin, Patrick and Matt have each picked a festive favourite, and our choices lent themselves to compiling two separate episodes where each we discuss why these films are our perennial, go-to holiday films.We begin the Nice List with Patrick introducing the Salkind-produced British-American coproduction SANTA CLAUS: THE MOVIE, starring David Huddleston as the man himself, who ascends from a beloved toymaker in 14th Century Germany to the immortal, jolly symbol of Christmas cheer. However, ambitious elf Patch (Dudley Moore) unknowingly threatens to derail everything when he gets wrapped up with ruthless toy company executive B.Z. (a full ham John Lithgow) and his madcap plans for CHRISTMAS 2!Gali follows this up with Richard Curtis’ seminal multi-strand rom-com LOVE ACTUALLY. A murderer’s row of (mostly) British thesps swear, bumble, emote and quip their way through stories that range from a grieving stepdad comforting his stepson via drums and Titanic, to a sassy Prime Minister who has the hots for the tea lady, via a long-shot comeback by an addled old rock star among many others.We want to thank you all for listening in our rambling chats throughout this year, hope you’ve enjoyed them, and wish you a restful and hopefully movie-fuelled festive break.

Charles Dickens would have wanted to see her nipples! Merry Christmas listeners, have we got a lump of coal for you! Gali, Devlin, Patrick and Matt have each picked a festive favourite, and our choices lent themselves to compiling two separate episodes where we each discuss why these films are our perennial, go-to holiday films.On the Naughty List, we start with Matt’s choice of GREMLINS, Joe Dante’s uproarious, puppet-mayhem-fuelled dismantling of the classic American soft-hearted, smalltown, feelgood, Christmas tale. When Billy Peltzer (Zach Galligan) receives an adorable little furball called Gizmo for Christmas, the list of seemingly simple rules he has to follow inevitably lead to carnage when little green fellas start destroying the not-so-picture-perfect town of Kingston Falls.We follow up with Devlin’s choice: Richard Donner’s livewire, cynical, yuppie-era Dickens subversion SCROOGED, starring a noticeably madcap Bill Murray as TV network president Frank Cross spending a night being tormented by some very zany ghosts in an effort to mend his wicked ways - such as celebrating the death of an old lady who he has scared to death with his murder-and-acid-rain-fuelled programme advertising, and threatening to staple antlers to a mouse’s head.We want to thank you all for listening in our rambling chats throughout this year, hope you’ve enjoyed them, and wish you a restful and hopefully movie-fuelled festive break.

How does it feel to be hunted? Well, greasy mulletted ‘Cajun’ Chance Boudreaux (Jean Claude Van Damme) is about to find out, as he finds himself embroiled in some big game down by the bayou in John Woo’s Hollywood debut Hard Target. Rolling into town in search of her daddy, Natasha (Yancy Butler, in her first feature) recruits Chance to assist after an, erm, chance meeting in which he rescues her from a mugging with some extremely well-placed slo-mo face kicks. Unfortunately, her dad has already fallen prey to the ruthless Emil Fouchon (Lance Henriksen), who, along with his cold-blooded sidekick Van Cleef (Arnold Vosloo), facilitate the hunting of homeless military veterans on the streets of New Orleans by extremely rich patrons who are seeking a very exclusive thrill. Fouchon soon turns his crosshairs on to the troublesome Chance, as arrows, bullets, and an outrageous amount of doves and pigeons fly.Join Gali, Devlin, Patrick and Matt as they rummage in the Bargain Bin to dig out Woo’s truly explosive calling card, blazing a trail from Hong Kong on the back of his incendiary balletic action films to not only establish himself in the big leagues, but also open the door to other filmmakers from the region, while cementing a visual style that quickly became a genre standard.Outro Song - 'Woo Hoo' (2004) - The 5 6 7 8'sIf you have any questions, comments or ideas for future episodes you can contact us on Twitter @rewindmoviepodcast or @galithegreek(Gali), (@quilllicker (Devlin), (@PatrickWaggett (Patrick) and @mdridley (Matt), and join our Facebook Group at https://www.facebook.com/rewindmoviecast/ or email us at rewindmoviepodcast@gmail.comThank you for listening and if you like the show please press that subscribe button and leave us a little review, MANY THANKS!!!

VAYA CON DIOS! We’re turning a petrol pump flamethrower on to this chilly winter weather and heading to sunny L.A., where the air got dirty and the sex got clean, for a blast of surfing, skydiving, and stealing with Kathryn Bigelow’s 1991 action classic Point Break. Quarterback punk and Quantico blue-flamer Johnny Utah (Keanu Reeves) arrives in town and is assigned his new partner, grizzled/insane FBI vet Pappas (Gary Busey), who has an interesting theory about the string of summer bank heists committed by a gang of guys calling themselves the Ex-Presidents, rubber mask-clad and disguised as Reagan, Nixon, Carter & Johnson. His hunch - that the gang are sssssssurfers - leads Utah to go undercover with a board like a ‘57 Chevy and try to enlist sassy Tyler (Lori Petty) to teach him to surf, before his head is noticeably turned by the enigmatic waverider Bodhi (Patrick Swayze). The two men form a fascinating, subversive bond even as one unwittingly pursues the other, leading to some remarkably heated chases and no small amount of shooting guns off and going ‘aaargh’.Join film picker Gali, Devlin, Patrick and Matt as they head out in search of the ultimate. You want this episode so bad, you can taste it like acid in your mouth.Outro Song - 'Police and Thieves' (1977) - The ClashIf you have any questions, comments or ideas for future episodes you can contact us on Twitter @rewindmoviepodcast or @galithegreek(Gali), (@quilllicker (Devlin), (@PatrickWaggett (Patrick) and @mdridley (Matt), and join our Facebook Group at https://www.facebook.com/rewindmoviecast/ or email us at rewindmoviepodcast@gmail.comThank you for listening and if you like the show please press that subscribe button and leave us a little review, MANY THANKS!!!

Candyman, Candyman, Candyman, Candyman… We’re back with our final installment in this HalloRe’ewind series of seasonal recommendations and our last pick comes from Patrick, who has chosen the 1992 classic Candyman. Oh no, that’s five!In the notorious project of Cabrini-Green, in the neglected housing blocks that sit in the shadow of the wealthiest districts of Chicago yet remain riddled with crime and gang activity, a gory folk tale has the residents of those towers under its spell: the hook-handed spirit of a brutally murdered man from a century before. University grad student Helen braves the dangerous turf in pursuit of the truth behind the tale, convinced that it’s merely a superstitious avatar for the everyday horrors the local population face. But is she inviting disaster by refusing to believe?Joining Patrick are Gali, Devlin and Matt as they discuss the curiously British origins of this very American horror, the tenor of the era that lent it an urgent timeliness, and the power of myths that saw a whole generation of kids daring each other to say his name in the mirror.Outro Song - 'Sweets for my Sweet' (1963) - The SearchersIf you have any questions, comments or ideas for future episodes you can contact us on Twitter @rewindmoviepodcast or @galithegreek(Gali), (@quilllicker (Devlin), (@PatrickWaggett (Patrick) and @mdridley (Matt), and join our Facebook Group at https://www.facebook.com/rewindmoviecast/ or email us at rewindmoviepodcast@gmail.comThank you for listening and if you like the show please press that subscribe button and leave us a little review, MANY THANKS!!!

CHEESEBURGER. The 3rd in our HalloRe’ewind series, where each host chooses their seasonal favourite, sees Gali emerging from his telepod as something transformed - Galifly. We’re talking about David Cronenberg’s classic sci-fi body horror The Fly from 1986.Brilliant scientist Seth Brundle (Jeff Goldblum) charms journalist Veronica Quaife (his then-real-life partner Geena Davis) into visiting his warehouse laboratory-come-apartment with the promise of showing her an invention which will change the course of history. Suitably amazed by a demonstration of his revolutionary device for transporting matter, he convinces her to hold off on publishing her findings until he has achieved his ultimate task - human teleportation. They grow closer, but a mixture of hubris and human fallibility leads to a terrifying, slow-burning nightmare of his own doing.We relive this classic in all its grotesque glory, discussing the pioneering practical effects, memorable score, and affecting performances as Gali, Devlin, Matt and Patrick continue through our Halloween season of tricks and treats.
