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.

    MAGNOLIA with Shane Burley

    MAGNOLIA with Shane Burley

    This week we wise up about Paul Thomas Anderson's MAGNOLIA! Starring an ensemble cast featuring Phillip Seymour Hoffman, William H. Macy, Phillip Baker Hall and some other people with three word names or a prominent initial. Coincidence? Oh also, Tom Cruise shows up I think. It's a long, sprawling movie about regret and forgiveness, but can we forgive a movie with a three hour running time?

    MANHUNTER

    MANHUNTER

    Put down the chianti, this week we delve into the cinematic origins of the Hannibal Lecter saga with Michael Mann's MANHUNTER! Starring William Peterson, Dennis Farina, Tom Noonan, Kim Griest and Joan Allen, this stylized 80's thriller was not a blockbuster hit like Silence of The Lambs, but in recent years has attained cult movie status. But what do we think about it?

    ROXANNE

    ROXANNE

    This week we stick our... uh, noses into ROXANNE! It's the 1987 romantic comedy starring Steve Martin and Darryl Hannah based on the play Cyrano De Bergerac about a man with a very long nose who falls in love with a woman who loves another, less nosed man. Also featuring Shelly Duvall, Fred Willard and Damon Wayans, this movie was a hit when it was first released, how does it hold up now?

    EXTREME MEASURES

    EXTREME MEASURES

    This week we operate on EXTREME MEASURES! Starring, umm, yes, well Hugh Grant, Sarah Jessica Parker and Gene Hackman, it's a medical thriller about a doctor that must get to the bottom of a vast conspiracy to use homeless people as unwilling test subjects! This movie got our pulse racing and our hearts beating like a drum (maybe we should see a doctor), but how does it hold up now?

    The Village

    The Village

    This week we hole ourselves up in THE VILLAGE! Directed by M. Night Shyamalan and starring Bryce Dallas Howard, Joaquin Phoenix and Adrian Brody, it's the movie about a mysterious old timey village where the color red is forbidden! But is it all a clever allegory? Does it somehow speak to our present moment? Is this movie part of the Arrested Development universe?

Relistenability

Great podcast. One of my favorites.

Three suggestions

Just discovered the show & have enjoyed the few episodes that I’ve listened to so far. Looking forward to listening to more in the future for sure.

Here are three suggestions for bad (good?) 80’s & 90’s movies that could provide good content for an episode:

1. Toy Soldiers
2. The Disorderlies
3. Surviving the Game
