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.

To mark the milestone of 100 episodes, Gali, Devlin, Patrick and Matt take some time out to discuss the very best (and worst) of the movies we’ve covered over the last 4-and-a-bit years, and present some of our favourite films their very own fictitious, ostentatious, thick cut statuette. Yes, it's awards season fever, and we've only gone and got ourselves a temperature of 103°. 
    We want to thank everyone who has either popped in for an episode or two, or stuck with us through the entire century, as we ventured back across our formative films and indulged ourselves in a big old chat about them. While I’m sure the four of us would be rambling on regardless, it’s been heartening to connect with so many listeners and share some of our fondest, and not so fond…est, memories of our movie-going lives. Here’s to the next hundred! Now, we go live to the red carpet, so the E! Network can be duplicitously nice about your awful shoes.
    Head to rewindmoviecast.com for an introductory essay by Matt, including a YouTube playlist of clips and behind-the-scenes videos for the film - and for those last minute gift ideas (they won't arrive in time, but don't worry about that) why not check out devlindoesdrawing.teemill.com for our merchandise store - you'll find Rewind Movie Podcast shirts, hoodies, totes, stickers, and a whole lot more, plus posters and shirts based on many of the films we've covered on the podcast (and a whole lot more).
    If you’d like to support the podcast, a review or a quick rating on your platform of choice is the best way you can help us get the word out and keep the conversations flowing.

    Home Alone (1990) - Episode 100

    Home Alone (1990) - Episode 100

    When I grow up and get married, I’m living alone! Do you hear me! I’M LIVING ALONE! For our ONE HUNDREDTH(!) episode, this Rewindmas Eve-Eve we invite you to unwrap a booby trap-laden chat about that enduring festive classic of child endangerment and traumatic brain injuries, Chris Columbus’ John Hughes-penned 1990 family comedy Home Alone.
    Precocious but troublesome 8-year-old Kevin McCallister, the youngest of a sprawling Chicago clan of jostling siblings and cousins, almost wrecks the family’s travel plans for a Christmas holiday in Paris when, in retaliation on his older brother’s pizza-based bullying, he inadvertently drenches their passports and tickets in milk. Sent to the attic to think about what he’s done, he instead finds himself left behind when the panicked family rush to catch their flight without him the following morning. Initially revelling in his new-found freedom as the man of the house, he soon finds himself under threat from a pair of bungling burglars who are hellbent on breaking into this silver tuna. You know the rest.
    The gang share their memories of this Christmas TV schedule perennial, its ongoing appeal, and how the film balances sentimentality, comedy, and concussions. Patrick also does the Joe Pesci swear-grumbling thing and we rank Marv’s screams. Merry Christmas listeners, thanks for sticking with us as we hit our century! We’ll see you in the distant future, 2023, when we will be terrifying human/robot hybrids.
    Best wishes,
    Gali, Devlin, Patrick & Matt xoxo

    Female Prisoner Scorpion : Jailhouse 41 (1972) - Episode 99

    Female Prisoner Scorpion : Jailhouse 41 (1972) - Episode 99

    Burning, burning…burning woman’s song of vengeance. We’re delving into the heady world of 1970s Japanese exploitation cinema with the imposing Meiko Kaji as the indomitable Nami Matsushima, Sasori, the wrongly imprisoned Convict #701 in Female Prisoner Scorpion: Jailhouse 41.
    Directed by Shunya Itō in 1972, mere months after releasing the first film in the series (and his debut feature) Female Prisoner #701: Scorpion, Jailhouse 41 sees Kaji do battle with the vicious, patriarchal forces of prison Warden Goda (Fumio Watanabe) and his guards after her repeated escape attempts have started to undermine his authority. A shocking punishment, a kaleidoscopic prison break, and a phantasmagorical trip through the tumultuous landscape of a Japan in upheaval follows in an incendiary, politically charged, visually startling underground cult classic.
    Film picker Devlin has chosen the 50th anniversary of its release to introduce new viewers Gali, Patrick and Matt to one of his favourites, as they join him in debate on representations of gender, moral murkiness, the perils and pleasures of quick and cheap movie production, awesome theme tunes, and a whole lot more. Were the gang willing to join in the riot, or were they ready to send Devlin to solitary confinement?
    For information about this film, and the era that produced it, head to rewindmoviecast.com for an introductory essay by Devlin that contains more information, article links, trailers, clips that help contextualise the movie. You’ll also find his Scorpion-inspired poster designs for all four Kaji features as high quality giclee prints on Etsy, and as a range of shirts, hoodies and sweatshirts at our Teemill store. You can also find our movie podcast merchandise, and shirts and posters based on some of the other titles we’ve discussed.

    American Psycho (2000) - Episode 98

    American Psycho (2000) - Episode 98

    Hey Paul! Try getting a reservation at Dorsia now! We’ve done our stomach crunches, cleansed, lotioned, and exfoliated to revisit Mary Harron’s sly, controversial 2000 adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis’ incendiary death-of-the-80s yuppie epitaph novel American Psycho.
    Handsome, 27-year-old Wall Street investment banker and trust fund kid Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale) inhabits a repetitive, rarefied world of gleaming, high-end restaurants, vapid clubs, and competitive jousting with his circle of Armani-besuited doppelganger friends/enemies. He keeps up appearances with a prim fiancée, Evelyn (Reese Witherspoon), who he also barely tolerates with near-total disdain, while indulging in several affairs with co-workers, friends’ partners, and sex workers. When a colleague’s superior business card inspires a murderous bloodlust in him, he sets off on a grand guignol spree of death, mutliation and savagery - but is everything as it appears to be?
    Joining Gali and Matt for this Listener Request episode (thanks to James Munro for the suggestion!) once again is our good friend Joe McDonald, a long-time industry professional in the lighting business. The gang discuss the novel’s circuitous path to the screen, its reception upon release, and its place in the pop culture firmament as horror, satire, and meme fodder.
    Please head to rewindmoviecast.com for a wonderful essay by Matt, and if you like this episode’s cover image, visit our Teemill store for poster prints!

    The Net (1995) - Episode 97

    The Net (1995) - Episode 97

    “She’s going to use a computer!” We’ve told our mums not to use the phone for the next couple of hours so we can log onto 1995’s technofear thriller The Net, as part of our Bargain Bin series. 
    Reclusive tech worker Angela Bennett (Sandra Bullock) is a work-from-home cyber security whizz, whose interactions with the real world rarely stretch beyond conference calls with distant colleagues, anonymous chat room sessions with “CyberBob”, “Iceman” and “Gandalf”, and visits to her hospitalised Alzheimers’ patient mother who doesn’t recognise her. Her solitary existence backfires hugely when a computer virus she is studying turns out to be the secret door to a world of corporate espionage that threatens the highest levels of government. Befriended, bedded and betrayed by one of the baddies, her entire existence is stolen and she finds herself on the run from both the law and the evil corporation under an assumed, criminal, identity with no one to corroborate her crazy tale. It’s a race against time to regain her life and take down the wrongdoers.
    An early example of a webphobic film that focusses on the dark possibilities of an entirely online life, hugely successful producer Irwin Winkler stepped behind the camera for only his 3rd feature, and was deft enough to cast an on-the-verge-of-superstardom Sandra Bullock to essay his Hitchockian innocent-on-the-run protagonist. Pour yourself a disgusting onion-based cocktail, ask your computer politely for a pizza, and join Gali, Devlin and Patrick for a trip back to the heady dial-up days of efficiently made Hollywood star vehicle thrillers.

    The Lost Boys (1987) - Episode 96

    The Lost Boys (1987) - Episode 96

    You better get yourself a garlic T-shirt buddy, otherwise it’s your funeral. Our 2nd seasonal selection for this Halloween is Joel Schumacher’s stylish 1987 teen vampire classic The Lost Boys.
    Brothers Michael (Jason Patric) and Sam (Corey Haim) move with their mother (Dianne Wiest) to the small northern California town of Santa Carla, where all may not be all it appears. While Sam geeks out with local comic book nerds, Edgar and Alan Frog (Corey Feldman and Jamison Newlander) and gets the lowdown on the undead shenanigans they feel are all around them, Michael is drawn into the sphere of the darkly charismatic David (Kiefer Sutherland) and his gang of punk ruffians, joining them in dangerous initiation rites that start to effect terrifying changes on him.
    Did it stiff us, or was it pretty cool for a fashion victim? Were we at the mercy of our sex glands, or were we sniffing old newsprint?
    Gali and Matt dig into their takeaway cartons of worm-noodles and maggot-rice, and stay out way past their bedtimes for this sultry, subversive, coming-of-age horror-adventure staple. Drink some of this and be one of us on The Rewind Movie Podcast.

Great podcast for nostalgia

Have only recently discovered this and have been listening to some early episodes.

That they’ve done a whole podcast on Freejack is great.

Highly recommend.

Excellent film podcast

I’m quite demanding when it comes to my film podcasts. They must be hosted with genuine chemistry and have a very good knowledge of the films covered and the industry. I have only listened to two episodes so far, Aliens and Predator, and I already know that I’m going to be listening to all of the others pretty quickly! A must listen for all film fans who demand a bit more from their podcasts!

A Must for all Movie fans

Fantastic podcast and the team on it have so much chemistry and clearly know what they are talking about, the issues raised during the Aliens episode made me want to rewatch it straight away.
