    Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989) - Part 2, Rewatch Review

    Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989) - Part 2, Rewatch Review

    This is part 2 of our adventure exploring 1989's Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Be sure to listen to part 1 first, as we explore our nostalgia and memories of this film before rewatching it.

    Follow me I know the way to a great American action adventure film. X always marks the spot in 1989’s Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, brought to us by the legendary Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, and John Williams. Harrison Ford and Sean Connery are the only Father/Son duo we need to take on the Nazis.

    I regret to inform everyone that Dana had only seen the Crystal Skull prior to this movie… We needed to set things right, so our good friend Kari joins us as we break this nostalgic trip down.

    This is part one of our review, where we focus purely on our nostalgia and memory of this film without watching it. This was Tim’s favorite movie of all-time as a kid, and Chris and Spaz both have a ton of nostalgia for it. However, Dana is worried it will not hold up after 21 years… This is what our podcast is all about! Let’s take that red pill and see where that rabbit hole takes us...

    Girl, Interrupted (1999) - "Was I ever crazy? Maybe. Or maybe life is."

    Girl, Interrupted (1999) - "Was I ever crazy? Maybe. Or maybe life is."

    We interrupt to talk to you about James Mangold’s 1999 American psychological drama, “Girl, Interrupted”. Starring Winona Ryder, Angelina Jolie, Brittany Murphy, Whoopi Goldberg, Elisabeth Moss, Angela Bettis, and Jared Leto.

    This is a film that everyone EXCEPT Spaz has seen and his experience watching this movie was surprising to say the least. This film left an impact on Tim, Chris, and Dana when they saw it in the early 2000’s, but the big question is will it leave a similar impact today?

    Tim pulled off a miracle and managed to have a Q&A with the one and only James Mangold to discuss how this movie came to be, how James approached the screenplay, and his favorite memories. To read the entire Q&A, head to OSWpodcast.com

    Since May is designated Mental Health Awareness Month and we dedicated this movie to mental health, it didn’t feel fitting to have a sponsor for this episode. Instead, we wanted to direct our listeners to the non-profit To Write Love on Her Arms. They are dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide. We strongly encourage everyone to follow this movement on social media as they provide great insights and hope through wonderful posts.

    We love you all!

    Big Trouble in Little China (1986) - "It's All In The Reflexes"

    Big Trouble in Little China (1986) - "It's All In The Reflexes"

    This is On Second Watch, and we’re talkin' to whoever's listenin' out there. Hop aboard the Pork Chop Express as we take a wild ride with John Carpenter’s 1986 cult classic, “Big Trouble in Little China”. Staring Kurt Russell, Kim Cattrall, James Hong, and the one and only Gerald Okamura, who joins us for a great interview about his experience with this film.



    Surprising no one, Dana has never seen this movie, and it was a whirlwind of emotions. Tim and Chris lost respect for one another, and Spaz was too busy getting push notifications on his phone. Does this cult classic still reign as one of the kings of all cult classics? Just do what ol’ Jack Burton would do and listen to On Second Watch.
