Ever watched a movie and thought, "Anyone could make something better than this garbage?" Well so have hosts Josiah and Rob. That's why they started The Remake--a podcast where they don't just criticize movies; they tell you how they would have made them better.
Every week Josiah and Rob are joined by a different guest with a new movie to remake. Whether their ideas are good, bad, or simply strange, they'll find a home on The Remake.

Even though The Remake has ridden off into the sunset, former co-host Josiah has gotten back up on that podcast horse.
Please check out Josiah's new podcast, The $8 Game Show! Every week has different rounds and games. In this debut episode, cartoon writer Chris Carter plays the name game, makes his Laffy Taffy, and tries his hand at some foley work. But will he put it all on the line to answer The Pretty Hard Question?
Theme music by Eric Braband!
Well it’s the final episode. We opened with Super Mario Bros; somewhere in the middle is the legendary Doom episode; Our 100th was Street Fighter; So to finish it off, we’re doing MORTAL KOMBAT.
For the finale, Rob is joined by co-host James Dugan and friend of the podcast Jeff Garceau to break down what is just nonsense.
Remakes begin @ 1hr 4mins: Dugan goes even more ridiculous; Jeff steals a plot from another movie; and Rob pitches his best remake ever.
Thanks for listening everybody!
In the second to last episode, Rob is joined by Sarah Gitenstein and Jared Fernley to chat about the Steve Martin all genre movie LA STORY. We’re all over the place but it was delightful.
Remakes begin @ 38:30: Rob does some recasting; And Sarah and Jared have a main pitch with a 1A and maybe a 1B.
See Jared in the Amazon Original Series Patriot which should be out soon.
And go see Sarah's work as Assistant Director in Harvey at Court Theatre.
Wolf of Wall Street
In the third to last episode, Rob welcomes back Andy Dierker and welcomes first time guest Dan MacAvoy. After doing a bunch of coke, tricking the wealthy out of their money, and just being terrible to everyone, the trio chats about the Martin Scorsese/ Leonardo DiCaprio love fest WOLF OF WALL STREET.
Remakes begin at 46:30: Andy takes the title literally; Rob pitches the college years; and Dan kicks up the weirdness and grotesques-ness.
Find Dan at next year’s Chriskindlmarkt and check out The Late 90s Wednesdays, 10:30pm at iO Chicago.
And as always, leave Andy alone.
This week, Rob is joined by Portland’s Favorite Brother Sister acting duo Julie and Neal Starbird to talk about one of the worst horror space movies ever: EVENT HORIZON. What a piece of crap.
Remakes begin at 43:30mins: Neal brings in a better director and Ron Perlman; Rob brings in some meddling kids; and Julie does her best to polish a turd.
Follow Julie on twitter @ juliestarbee and listen to her podcast (along with friend of the podcast Allison Shoemaker) Podlander Drunkcast: an Outlander Podcast.
And if you find Neal’s cave, you win a prize!
