Episode 79- GROUNDHOG DAY

Episode 79- GROUNDHOG DAY

Grab your booties ’cause it’s cold out there… yes, it’s Groundhog Day, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this month. Bill Murray, Andie MacDowell, Stephen Tobolowsky, a Groundhog, Chris Elliot– what more can you say about this classic? Plenty! Kind of…

We ask questions such as: Why do Buddhists love this movie? Would a deleted scene from the script have ruined the film? Why is General Zod in this movie? Was Phil the Weatherman in the band Genesis?

Episode 65- Wild Things

This week on Rewatchability, we reward our inner 14-year-olds with the 1998 trash classic Wild Things. After fourteen years, and several straight-to-video, in-name-only sequels, Wild Things‘ reputation isn’t great, but is it better than people remember? Most people saw it for one reason in 1998… *cough*… But, hey, it was directed by John McNaughton (Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer) and who remembers the fact that Bill Murray is in this movie? And did you know Wild Things actually isn’t supposed to be an adaptation of Maurice Sendak’s classic children’s book?

Joined by guest Johnnie Walker we discuss if Wild Things is rewatchable, while trying to keep the double entendres to a minimum. To hear our sexiest episode since Jumanji, download the link below, or better yet, subscribe on iTunes! And be sure to follow us on Twitter!

Top 5 Pop-Culture Toasters

Is there any icon of cinema and television more enduring than that of the toaster? Well, frankly, yes… but that hasn’t stopped us from compiling this ridiculous list of the Top 5 Pop-Culture Toasters, in anticipation of this week’s upcoming show about The Brave Little Toaster (look for it Thursday). On with the list:

5. Homer’s Time Machine (from The Simpsons “Treehouse of Horror V”)

The the second segment of arguably the best installment of The Simpsons‘ annual Halloween specials, “Time and Punishment” is a delightful riff on Ray Bradbury’s classic story A Sound of Thunder. The hilarious twist? You guessed it– a toaster! We’ve seen phone booths and DeLoreans used as time machines, why not a toaster? Bet, you wish you’d thought of that, H.G. Wells!

4. The Toaster That Carol Kane Hits Bill Murray With (from Scrooged)

Okay, so maybe the toaster itself doesn’t stand out that much, but Scrooged is a classic, and the scene in which Carol Kane abuses Bill Murray is a memorable one– not to mention the fact that the Bill Murray line, “The bitch hit me with a toaster,” is alone enough to warrant a mention on this list.

3. Talkie Toaster (from Red Dwarf)

The recently exhumed British sci-fi sitcom Red Dwarf prominently featured a talking toaster in several episodes. Not only was the toaster an annoyance for the crew crew (persistently asking if they wanted toast) it also questioned its own existence, and the meaning of life itself. When was the last time your toaster did that? Yeah, didn’t think so.

2. The Dancing Toaster (from Ghostbusters II)

So maybe Ghostbusters II was a bit of a letdown (after all, the villain was a giant painting of Klaus Kinski and Val Kilmer’s love-child). It does however have a fantastic toaster scene in which some ectoplasmic goo combined with a Jackie Wilson tune causes a common household toaster to dance– John Lithgow would have been furious! Let’s hope the toaster makes a return appearance when Ghostbusters 3 hits theatres in 2046.

1. Toaster (from The Brave Little Toaster)

If you thought number one was going to be some cylon, you were wrong! How could we not pick The Brave Little Toaster? Title character? Check. Christ allegory? Check. Straight-to-video sequels? Check. This toaster is king of pop-culture toasters, and if you don’t believe us, check back on Thursday to hear our full episode about The Brave Little Toaster, or better yet, subscribe to the show on iTunes!

Episode 56- Rushmore

It’s back-to-school week on the pop-culture nostalgia podcast, as we delve into Wes Anderson’s 1998 film Rushmore, starring Jason Schwartzman, Olivia Williams, and Bill Murray. It seemed like a contemporary classic at the time, but has it dated at all in the past 14 years? We also chat a bit about our experiences at the Toronto International Film Festival, including Blain’s impression of Rian Johnson’s Looper and J.M.’s experience at Jason Reitman’s reading of the American Beauty script with Bryan Cranston and Christina Hendricks.

Correction: Rob refers to Edward Norton as Edward Burns in our discussion of Red Dragon. To find out how our conversation drifted to Red Dragon you’ll have to listen to the show.

Episode 1- The Real Ghostbusters

Welcome to Rewatchability! The aim of the podcast is to re-examine the movies and television shows we have already seen, and hopefully analyze them in an interesting and humourous way. Hopefully.

For the premiere episode we take a second look at a show that helped shape the collective consciousness of an entire generation: The Real Ghostbusters! Does the show stand the test of time? Were the Ghostbusters racists? Does Peter Venkman hate women? We attempt to answer these questions and more!
