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.

    BREAKDOWN

    BREAKDOWN

    Hop on in, this week we're hitchin' a ride with BREAKDOWN! Starring Kurt Russell and Kathleen Quinlan, it's a movie about a married couple who experience car trouble in the middle of the desert and get terrorized by JT Walsh and his gang of murderous yahoos. Should have had AAA. Also featuring MC Gainey and Jack Noseworthy, this movie made us anxious whenever our car started making a funny noise, but how does it hold up now?

    QUICK CHANGE

    QUICK CHANGE

    Slather on that grease paint, this week we clown around with QUICK CHANGE! Directed by Bill Murray and Howard Franklin and starring Bill Murray, Geena Davis and Randy Quaid, this movie chronicles the hapless attempts of three bank robbers to evade the law and escape from New York (shoulda asked Kurt Russell). Also starring Jason Robards, Phil Hartman and Stanley Tucci, this movie taught us that robbing banks is cool, I think. It stole our hearts, at gunpoint, but how does it hold up now?

    GROSSE POINT BLANK

    GROSSE POINT BLANK

    This week we revisit the old school with GROSSE POINT BLANK! Directed by George Armitage and starring John Cusack, Minnie Driver and Dan Ackroyd, it's a classic boy-meets-girl, boy-disappears-and-becomes-professional killer, boy-returns-for-his-high-school-reunion-and-has-to-avoid-getting-killed-while-declaring-his-feeling-for-his-lost-love-story. Also hey, John brought the whole family out. This movie was a big "hit" with us when we were younger, but how does it hold up now?

Written and directed by Roger Avery (Pulp Fiction) and based on the novel by Bret Easton Ellis (American Psycho), this movie zooms in on a group of overprivileged college kids who are just terrible to each other. Featuring Dawson (James Van Der Beek), Boone from Lost (Ian Somerhalder), that girl from things (Shannyn Sossamon) and Jessica Biel, this movie seemed deep and profound when we were younger, but how des it hold up now?

    LICENSE TO DRIVE

    LICENSE TO DRIVE

    Buckle in, this week we're behind the wheel with LICENSE TO DRIVE! Starring Coreys Haim and Feldman, plus Heather Graham, Richard Mazur and Carol Kane this movie is kind of the teen comedy equivalent of those gruesome driver safety videos they make drunk drivers watch. Also featuring the late great James Avery, this movie made afraid to cross the street, but how does it hold up today?

    DARKMAN

    DARKMAN

    Don't turn on the lights, this week we dwell in the shadows with DARKMAN! Directed by Sam Raimi (Evil Dead) and starring Liam Neeson (Taken) and Frances McDormand (everything worth watching), this comic book-like movie combined elements of classic pulp heroes and Universal monsters to create a fresh character unlike any other; a hero without a face!


    This movie made us turn on our nightlights when we were younger, but how does it hold up now?

A comforting, funny, hangout pod

Been listening to this podcast for a while now; the heart of it is the rapport between the three hosts, J.M, Rob, and Blaine, who each bring something unique to the table. Rewatching old movies can be really soothing: revisiting something familiar, engaging in a story world that is predictable, that never changes. You get a similar feeling listening to this podcast. Discussing the plot mechanics, memorable moments, and pitfalls of a Hollywood blockbuster from two decades ago is a charming distraction. With three guys who really care about movies, you get invested in their enthusiasm, which allows you a break from the anxieties of the news / your life. It's also always fun to talk about story, to reflect on responses to films, how they differ according to who's watching. Haven't listened to a single episode without laughing or learning at least one catchy tidbit. Well worth your time!!

Really enjoyable listening!

I love the premise of this podcast and the execution is really well done! The back and forth of the hosts is great and I find myself laughing out loud or nodding along with their discussions. And a big bonus that they’re Canadian just like me!
