Episode 43: Romper Stomper (1992)

Introduced by Devlin Putting together today's cover image encapsulated a bit of a general problem when it comes to discussing a film like Romper Stomper: does it glamorise or even romanticise the character, and by extension the subject matter, of the film to portray him in a way that, well, makes him look cool? The... Continue Reading →

Episode 42: Freejack (1992)

Introduced by Devlin Sir Mick Jagger, in an inexplicably large helmet, looks directly down the barrel of the lens right as it crash zooms in on his face, his trademark pout at its very poutiest: When our good friend Aidan, with whom we had been trying to coordinate to join us on the podcast for...

Episode 41: Aliens (1986) LV-RMP SERIES

Introduced by MattJames Cameron’s action-packed, balls-to-the-wall, Southern Comfort meets The Magnificent Seven follow up to Ridley Scott’s sci-fi horror classic, Alien, was first released around this time in the summer of '86. I was about 9-years-old, like Newt, when I first saw Aliens on television, and I must’ve been completely obsessed by the time I... Continue Reading →

Introduced by Devlin GOOMBA! On this episode, we turned over the reins of the film picking to the delightful and talented Em, creator and host of the phenomenal podcast Verbal Diorama, and she, without hesitation, chose the 1993 Nintendo bob-ox office bob-omb Super Mario Bros.

Episode 39: All The Real Girls (2003)

Introduced by Devlin …in which I derail any momentum we have in gaining new listeners by choosing a film most people haven't seen and which isn’t available to stream anywhere. Maybe Gali is right when he says he dreads my picks... To be honest, that’s always been our approach here on Rewind for Throwback episodes... Continue Reading →

Episode 37: Inception (2010)

Introduced by Devlin This is the most recent film we've ever covered on the podcast, which stretches the self-defined scope of what we deem a Rewind movie.

Episode 36: BARGAIN BIN #7 Taken (2008)

Introduced by Patrick You’re going to be taken… to a revisit of the most badass Brian you’ve ever encountered. I still laugh to this day that Liam Neeson’s character is called ‘Brian Mills’. It’s hardly a cool name like ‘Jason Bourne’, but that's one of the many reasons I enjoy this film so much -... Continue Reading →

Episode 34: Darby O’Gill and the Little People

Introduced by Devlin I admit early and often in this episode to having something of an inability to process whimsy. Despite having previously chosen a family fantasy film of sorts (Terry Gilliam's The Adventures of Baron Munchausen) my childhood had a marked dearth of family-style fantasy films, an even bigger dearth of Disney, and basically...
