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.

    Almost Famous (2000) - Episode 29

    Almost Famous (2000) - Episode 29

    We're flying high over Tupelo, Mississippi with the hottest band in America...and we're all about to die. Today's film-chooser Gali is joined on the road by Devlin and Patrick to revisit Cameron Crowe's OSCAR-winning rock 'n roll bildungsroman Almost Famous.

    15 year old aspiring rock journalist William Miller (Patrick Fugit) catches the break of a lifetime after a chance encounter with one of his favourite bands coincides with an offer from Rolling Stone magazine and he takes off to cover Stillwater's 1973 tour. With some sage, albeit cynical words from hero Lester Bangs (Philip Seymour Hoffman) ringing in his ears, William finds himself drawn in to the world of charismatic guitarist Russell Hammond (Billy Crudup) and enigmatic "Band Aid" Penny Lane (a star-making turn for Kate Hudson), much to the dismay of his well-meaning but fierce mother (Frances McDormand).

    Sharing the only true currency that means anything in this bankrupt world, our uncool hosts dive back in to their own wide-eyed teen years and check in 20 years later to see if their now crow-feet riddled, thirty-something eyes can still well up with joy when Tiny Dancer hits.

    Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey (1991) with Richard Jackson - Episode 28

    Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey (1991) with Richard Jackson - Episode 28

    DINNER’S OVER, WORM DUDE. Bill S. Preston, Esq. and “Ted” Theodore Logan return from their travels across time in Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, with our heroes seemingly no closer to fulfilling the prophecy that Wyld Stallyns' most excellent music will unite the world and lead to a glorious, utopian future.

    In fact, they are stuck in a run-down apartment working for nothing but pretzels and cheese. And things take a turn for the worse when a pair of evil robot doppelgangers turn up and throw them from a cliff to their deaths. Not that this is the end – after giving Death himself the slip with a severe Melvin, they set out on a race against time to save the future from the villainous gym teacher Chuck De Nomolos.

    On this episode we are delighted to be joined by Richard Jackson, of the YouTube review channel Val Verde Broadcasting. Along with co-hosts Gali and Devlin we discuss personal hells, Nerf-dart couture and illicit 1990s cable pornography as we witness more strange things afoot at the Circle K. STATION!

    Waterworld (1995) - Episode 27

    Waterworld (1995) - Episode 27

    Look, it's the gentleman guppy! Gali and Devlin are joined again by Matt, who has brought us the infamously expensive ocean-bound post-apocalyptic epic Waterworld.

    In a future where the now-melted ice caps have flooded the entire planet, a nameless trimaran-piloting Mariner finds himself entwined with a former denizen of a floating trading post and her companion, a young girl with a mysterious tattoo which is rumoured to point the way to Dryland – the fabled last vestiges of non-soggy Earth left. Pursued by the villainous Deacon and his gas-guzzling Smokers, the sullen Mariner learns to be less of a dick just in time for the explosive finale.

    It's a pee-drinking, dirt-selling, child-endangering extravaganza on the high seas, as Gali, Devlin and Matt discuss the career of Costner, the crazy production costs and post-production wrangles of Waterworld, and the legacy of a film widely regarded as an historic bomb. Will they find an unfairly maligned, ambitious hidden gem? Or a deservedly panned saltwater Mad Max ripoff?

    The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) - Episode 26

    The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) - Episode 26

    Nice work, Bone Daddy! On today’s super spooky episode, Patrick has a suspiciously serpentine present for us all: the stop motion animated classic The Nightmare Before Christmas.

    Pumpkin King Jack Skellington may be the toast of Halloween Town, but an indefinable melancholy leads him seek something else, something he finds when stumbling through a mystical door and tumbling down to Christmas Town. Inspired, Jack seeks to take Christmas for himself, with delightfully macabre results.

    Head down to Oogie Boogie’s dungeon and roll the dice to see whether Gali, Patrick and Devlin still have the same love they once did for this Tim Burton-produced, Henry Selick-directed childhood favourite. A hearty Merry Christmas from all of us here at The Rewind Movie Podcast, and we’ll be back in 2020 for more movie chats!

    Memoirs of an Invisible Man (1992) - Episode 25

    Memoirs of an Invisible Man (1992) - Episode 25

    It's lonely, isn't it, when you're a freak? On this Throwback episode we look at the John Carpenter-directed Chevy Chase sci-fi-romance-thriller Memoirs of an Invisible Man.

    Laconic stocks analyst Nick Halloway comes to regret the hungover nap he takes while skipping a lecture at the mysterious Magnascopics Institute, when an industrial accident renders the building invisible with him trapped inside. Pursued by a hostile intelligence operative (Sam Neill) intent on acquiring this invaluable asset as a spy or killing him if he refuses, Nick hides out in a beach house and runs into the beautiful stranger (Darryl Hannah) he met the night before befalling his fate.

    Marrying Hitchcockian suspense to droll, noirish narration and groundbreaking visual effects, the film was meant to be Chevy Chase’s gateway to serious acting success. Financially it didn’t play out that way, but are Devlin’s nostalgic and positive memories of the film still intact? Were new viewers Gali and Patrick as unimpressed as ticket-buyers in 1992? Join us as we discuss the career paths that led to the unusual pairing of Chase and Carpenter, rewatch one of his least heralded films, and relive Devlin’s cringeworthy night at the theatre with the venerable Mr Chase.

    The Terminator (1984) - Episode 24

    The Terminator (1984) - Episode 24

    NOTHING CLEAN. RIGHT. On today’s episode, Gali has lined up James Cameron’s seminal sci-fi horror chase thriller The Terminator.

    A lone protector versus an unstoppable assassin: future soldier Kyle Reese (Michael Biehn) and a large cyborg (Arnold Schwarzenegger) are sent hurtling back in time from a post-nuclear robo-hellscape to a grimy 1984 Los Angeles, converging on unassuming waitress Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) who may just be humanity’s best hope for survival.

    Inevitably mediocre impressions and an even more inevitable slating of Terminator Genisys ensue as Gali, Devlin and Patrick stump up the $4.50 entrance fee to the Tech-Noir and discuss whether the original packs the same punch as it once did, if the sequels have diluted its reputation, and why Cyberdyne manufactured cyborgs with enormous dongs.
