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.

“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.

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. We’re excited to talk to you all again in 2021!Outro Song - 'It's Christmas All Over the World' (1985) - Sheena EastonIf 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, MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

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. We’re excited to talk to you all again in 2021!Outro Song - 'Put a Little Love in your Heart' (1988) - Annie Lennox & Al GreenIf 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, MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

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!!!

The FLY (1986) - Episode 46

The FLY (1986) - Episode 46

2020-10-2001:38:41

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.

FIRE IT UP! FIRE IT UP! Our second selection in the HalloRe’ewind series comes courtesy of Devlin, who has delved back into his sulky late-teen years to choose the seminal goth-lite tragic romantic 1994 comic book revenge actioner The Crow.Striking rock vocalist Eric Draven (Brandon Lee) and his beautiful fiancée Shelley are viciously attacked on Hallowe’en eve, or Devil’s Night, by a gang of thugs who throw Eric to his death from their apartment’s ornate rose window. One year later, Eric rises from his grave to avenge his beloved Shelley, who succumbed later to her injuries, by killing each gang member responsible. Guided by a mysterious crow and now impervious to injury, his face painted to resemble a ghoulish white mask, he stalks the streets of Detroit on a path of righteous destruction that leads him to the sinister gangland boss Top Dollar (Michael Wincott).We relive the dark and gloomy nineties angst, revel in the industrial/grunge soundtrack, marvel at the weird career of director Alex Proyas, mourn the passing of the film’s rising star Brandon Lee, and mock Devlin for his formative small town miserabilism. Stick with us as all 4 panelists choose their seasonal faves all throughout October!Outro Song - 'I'm Like a Bird' Nelly Furtado (2000)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!!!

“Everybody be cool. YOU - be cool.” It’s the REAL most wonderful time of the year, and we at Rewind are indulging our bad selves with episodes on 4 Hallowe’en favourites throughout October. First up, we sink our fangs into the Mexican vampire mayhem of Robert Rodriguez’s From Dusk till Dawn, courtesy of super-fan Matt.Outlaw brothers Seth (an early breakout role for E.R. heartthrob George Clooney) and Richie (screenwriter and at-the-time ascendant indie movie vanguard Quentin Tarantino) Gecko are on their way to a safe haven south of the border after a daring prison break has left a trail of destruction in their wake. They’re forced to hitch a ride at gunpoint with fallen preacher Jacob (Harvey Keitel) and his teenage kids Kate and Scott, piloting their RV to an all-night biker hellhole called The Titty Twister to await the Geckos’ liaison. Little do they know that their troubles are just beginning, as they are confronted with something far worse than the scummy denizens of whip-cracking bikers toting firearm codpieces and carnival barking, erm, cat enthusiasts.Join us for this special HalloRe’ewind series, as all 4 panelists are choosing a seasonal favourite that holds a special place in our hearts. Today, we talk Tarantino’s enormous impact on the face of 90s cinema, Rodriguez’s outsider cool, exploitation tropes, and exploding rock bands. Come on, Sex Machine!Outro Song - 'Bad Moon Rising' Creedence Clearwater Revival (1969)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!!!

In this episode, we tackle the incendiary and controversial 1992 Australian movie Romper Stomper, featuring a star-making turn from Russell Crowe as the head of a gang of violent neo-Nazis in rundown suburban Melbourne. Hando (Crowe) leads his group of violent young men in a brutal assault on three young members of the city’s Vietnamese Australian community. Later, Hando and his shy, but equally violent, 2nd in command Davey (the late Daniel Pollock in his final role) notice a new girl in their local pub - the traumatised, epileptic, and very impressionable Gabrielle (Jaqueline McKenzie). When riotous retribution for their earlier attack comes their way, the gang’s ruinous ethos starts to unravel their unity, stripping them down to this core trio for an intense finale.Uniquely, this is the whole panel’s first viewing of this film - picker Patrick having only heard tell of the mark it left on his dad in his younger days. Joining Gali, Devlin and Matt, we discuss the legacy of a film that split the critical community on release, reflect on how the film now impacts new viewers almost three decades removed from its debut, and the choices of then-32-year-old tyro director Geoffrey Wright in his handling of the material.Please be advised this episode features discussions of racist violence and racist language.Outro Song - 'Come Together' - Primal Scream (1990)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!!!

GET THE MEAT. On this episode, Gali, Devlin and Patrick are joined all the way from Vancouver by fellow former film school buddy Aidan, who takes a break from his busy schedule as a focus puller & camera department pro to introduce us to the 1992 Sci-Fi curio Freejack, which for some reason was staple viewing in his formative years.Formula 1 racer and gopher-faced cheeky chap Alex Furlong (Emilio Estevez) wakes up on race day with his fiancee Julie (Rene Russo), unaware that not only does a terrible fiery car accident await him, but so does a bizarre temporal displacement kidnapping/pre-grave robbing of his soon-to-be incinerated body in the second before impact by behelmeted Bonejacker Vacendak (the actual Mick Jagger). Suddenly slung almost 20 years in to the future, Alex awakes in a sketchily drawn sub-Philip K Dick society where the infirm and very wealthy can pluck the nearly-deceased out of their timeline via scientific shenanigans and inhabit their lobotomised bodies in order to bypass age and illness. Now Alex, on the run from his own inhibition as the titular Freejack, tries to: maintain control of his own anatomy; reunite with latter-day corporate go-getter Julie; avoid the attentions of the tank-driving weirdo Vacendak; and uncover the labyrinthine corporate plot of who arranged his jacking that also embroils slimy exec Michelette (Jonathan Banks) and sonorous head honcho McCandless (a clearly contractually-obligated Anthony Hopkins). Confused? You will be! First-time viewers Patrick, Devlin and Gali delve in to see why such a deluge of ideas so enraptured a pre-teen Aidan back in his Northumbrian childhood, latching on to such fleeting pleasures as an eccentric turns by lovable 90s weirdo Amanda Plummer and former New York Doll David Johansen, the name Grand L. Bush, and a veritable checklist of corny dystopian tropes under the direction of Rewind alumnus Geoff Murphy (Under Siege 2: Dark Territory).If you have any questions, comments or ideas for future episodes you can contact us on Twitter @rewindmoviecast, @galithegreek (Gali), @QuillLicker (Devlin) and @PatrickWaggett (Patrick) or join our Facebook Group https://www.facebook.com/rewindmoviecast/ Check out the website at https://rewindmoviecast.com/ for more information about the podcast.

ALIENS (1986) - Episode 41

ALIENS (1986) - Episode 41

2020-08-2101:49:15

GAME OVER MAN! GAME OVER! We’re touching down on LV-426 in James Cameron’s incendiary 1986 sequel ALIENS. We’ll be revisiting the whole Alien franchise in true, confusing Rewind fashion not in release order, but in the order we watched them as kids.Thawed out of cryostasis almost 60 years after her first terrifying ordeal with the Xenomorphs, Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) is badgered by a sleazy executive from the shady Weyland-Yutani Corporation in to acting as an ‘advisor’ on a mission to investigate the far-flung terraforming colony Hadley’s Hope, situated on the same planet that Ripley barely managed to escape from, with which the company has lost contact. Gearing up alongside the rugged Colonial Marines, which includes badass Vasquez (Jenette Goldstein), wild card Hudson (Bill Paxton), and ice cool Hicks (Michael Biehn), Ripley’s worst fears are confirmed when familiar, nightmare fuel creatures wipe out most of the team almost immediately.As Ripley finds herself responsible for the sole survivor of the colony, a small girl called Newt, she must rely on only her wits and courage to survive and escape. Join Gali, Devlin, Patrick and Matt as they travel back in time to one of the seminal movies of most of our panel’s youths, a movie that detonated a popular sci-fi horror film into a multi-armed media franchise and arguably created an entire subgenre of imitators.

Welcome DISGUSTING MAMMALS to a very special Rewind Movie Podcast! On this episode we are delighted to be joined by the effervescent Em from the excellent Verbal Diorama podcast, who has rewarded our hospitality by bringing us the...fondly remembered 1993 video game adaptation SUPER MARIO BROS.Grumbling Britalian-American plumber Mario Mario (a visibly confused Bob Hoskins) and his Colombian/Calabrian brother Luigi Mario (John Leguizamo) follow sparky young archaeologist Daisy (Samantha Mathis) through a portal to an alternative dimension where dinosaurs, not simians, were the evolutionary forebears of the humanoid denizens of the cyberpunk trashland known as Dinohattan. Its leader is the slithery and ruthless King Koopa (crazy Dennis Hopper), who intends to use Daisy and her mysterious necklace to take over and rule our world.We delve into the bizarre origins of the film, the on-set fights over tone and content, and how that affected the final movie, as the directors’ dystopian designs clash with the family-friendly script commissioned while production was already in progress. With all this ground to cover, luckily we have our tremendous guest to keep us on track. Join Gali, Devlin and Em down one of those green tunnel-looking things as we take a deep dive on one of 90s cinema’s most famous flops. Will we unearth a rare and beautiful truffle from under the dirt, or does this mushroom deserve to be flambéed?You can find Em on social media @verbaldiorama, on her website at https://verbaldiorama.com/, and of course on your favourite podcast platform!Outro Song - 'That's Amore' - Dean Martin (1953)PODCAST Recommendation - VERBAL DIORAMAIf 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!!!

If anybody smiles at me ever again, I'm going to freak out. On this Throwback episode, Devlin has chosen David Gordon Green’s 2003 melancholy indie romance All The Real Girls.We meet small town lothario Paul (Paul Schneider) after he has already become enraptured by his best friend’s younger sister Noel (Zooey Deschanel), and begun a tentative romance that doesn’t sit well with drinking buddy and fellow carouser Tip (Shea Wigham) who knows all too well what his worst impulses can lead to. Before he hit the big time with his Blumhouse Halloween franchise, we return to David Gordon Green’s roots with his second feature, and discuss his idiosyncratic career trajectory. Set amongst the natural splendour and post-industrial decline of North Carolina, where Green & Schneider studied film along with co-star Danny McBride, this naturalistic, meditative film was a seminal discovery for Devlin back when he was on the brink of adulthood - does it still hold the same sway now? And will it cast any kind of spell on Gali, Patrick & Matt, who he hassled relentlessly to watch it all those years ago?Outro Song - 'She's Got Issues' The Offspring (1998)PODCAST Recommendation - SEEN THE SEQUELThe movie podcast about the sequels that were never made, probably for good reason.

PHOENIIIIIIIIX! Mellow greetings, friends. On this episode, we emerge naked and with a compulsion to knit from the Cryo Bargain Bin clutching our frozen copies of the 1993 futuristic actioner Demolition Man.Ass-kicking explosions cop John Spartan (Sylvester Stallone) is set up for a crime he didn’t commit by wily all-around villain and Dennis Rodman-alike Simon Phoenix (Wesley Snipes) in a fiery conflict, which sees both men sentenced to Cryo-Penitentiary. Phoenix is awoken by some nefarious hand in a now totally pacifistic, utopian 2032, free to MurderDeathKill as many innocents as he sees fit, before the decision is made to defrost the caveman Spartan to renew their hostilities and hunt him down.Yes, we talk about the three seashells. Yes, it’s disgusting. Join Gali, Devlin, Patrick and Matt as they revisit a one-time playground favourite and talk the Hunka Chunka, verbal morality code violations, and distracting Jack Black cameos.Outro Song - 'We Don't Have to Take our Clothes Off' Jermaine Stewart (1985)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!!!

What is the most resilient parasite? Bacteria? A virus? An intestinal worm? AN IDEA. On this Throwback episode, Gali invites Patrick, Devlin and Matt on a journey through subconscious layers to revisit INCEPTION a decade after its monumentally successful debut.Dream thief Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) finds himself in hot water: exiled from his homeland and separated from his children by a mysterious incident, and on the run from some very angry industrialists, he has no choice but to take a job from the powerful Mr Saito (Ken Watanabe) to mount his most ambitious heist to date - implant an idea in to another person’s unconscious mind. Assembling a team, they will face dangers not just from the mind of their mark Robert Fischer (Cillian Murphy), but the darkness lurking in Cobb’s own.Will this dazzling critical darling still wow our panel? Did this dream reveal deep truths that our waking minds could devour? Or, looking back, was it all a bit of a sleight of hand trick? We discuss the remarkable rise of Christopher Nolan, his position at the upper echelon of the auteur tree, and the legacy of a film whose success was a real game changer for the filmmaker-as-brand.Outro Song - 'Together in Electric Dreams' Philip Oakey & Giorgio Moroder (1985)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!!!
