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.

    THE FRIGHTENERS

    THE FRIGHTENERS

    If there's something strange in your neighborhood, but you're on a budget, who you gonna call? We ring up THE FRIGHTENERS! Directed by Peter Jackson and starring Michael J. Fox, Trini Alvardo and the second craziest Busey in Hollywood, it's about a guy running a paranormal investigation grift who must stop the grim specter of death itself! Also featuring John Astin, Jeffrey Combs and Elliott's mom from E.T., this movie scared and fascinated us, but how does it hold up now?

    JENNIFER'S BODY with Alex Nursall and Emily Kellogg

    JENNIFER'S BODY with Alex Nursall and Emily Kellogg

    Call your bff, this week we're dishing on JENNIFER'S BODY! Written by Diablo Cody, directed by Karyn Kusama, and starring Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried, this movie was considered a huge flop in the wake of Cody's success with Juno. Though initially dismissed by critics, perhaps due to it's bro-tastic marketing, it's since been rediscovered and re-evaluated as a cult feminist classic. Emily and Alex from the podcast Parkdale Haunt join us.

    CONEHEADS

    CONEHEADS

    Grarble your phlonx, this week we visit with American's favorite family, the CONEHEADS! Starring Dan Ackroyd, Jane Curtain and Chris Farley amongst a zillion other SNL alums, this aquatic-lifeform-removed-from-dihydrogen-monoxide tale shines a luminescent photon beam on the immigrant experience (or at least the experience of white immigrants with high foreheads) that is woven into America's very fabric. But what do Beldar and Prymaat have to offer today's world?

    INCEPTION

    INCEPTION

    With Christopher Nolan's TENET in cinemas for those who want to risk their lives and health for a movie, we close our eyes and re-enter the world of INCEPTION! Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, plus Ellen Page, Marion Cotillard and more, Inception bent our minds as we tried to decipher reality from dream. But how does it hold up ten years later?

    BILL & TED'S BOGUS JOURNEY

    BILL & TED'S BOGUS JOURNEY

    In celebration of the most eminent release of Bill & Ted Face The Music, forming the most heinous of trilogies, we hit the Highway to Hell (shredding noises) with BILL & TED'S BOGUS JOURNEY! Starring the most radical Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter, not to mention George Carlin and totally bodacious Pam Grier, Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey is like the Van Halen II, except if Running With The Devil from Van Halen I were on it. We were totally on board with the Bill & Ted utopia when we were younger, but is it still righteous to our future selves?

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

Excellent Show

Listened to the Airheads episode by accident (long story) really enjoyed it and can’t wait to listen to more episodes!

Buy Button Not Working? ,

Better than Rob and Fab

Rob and Blaine are funnier than Rob and Fab (aka Milli Vanilli lip syncing guys).
