Episode 87- RETURN TO OZ

Episode 87- Return to Oz

With Sam Raimi’s Oz: The Great and Powerful opening this week, we decided to re-visit one of our childhood favourites, Walter Murch’s Return to Oz. While it’s notable for being renowned editor Walter Murch’s only directorial effort, its reputation is mainly built upon the fact that it TERRIFIED CHILDREN in 1985! Dorothy gets sent for shock-treatment! Everyone in Oz has been turned to fucking stone! Disembodied screaming heads! Dorothy eventually grows up to be a witch herself! Scary stuff. How did we feel about it now? To hear our discussion of Return to Oz, download the link below, or better yet, subscribe on iTunes! And be sure to follow us on Twitter!

Episode 76- Return of Return of the Jedi

On this week’s un-retro episode of Rewatchability, we tease Thursday’s episode (our final entry in our month of Canadian content), plus we talk about the fact that J.J. Abrams is directing the new Star Wars flick, as well as the news that Disney cancelling the 3-D re-releases of Episodes 2 and 3, thus saving Life Day. We also chat about Zero Dark Thirty, the Coen Brothers vs. the Farrelly Brothers, Woody Allen’s Sleeper, and Randy Quaid being denied Canadian citizenship, thus ruining Life Day.

Episode 64- The Brave Little Toaster

Remember your beloved childhood toaster? How about that lamp you used to always play with? Then this film, The Brave Little Toaster may be for you! Directed by Jerry Rees, and co-starring Jon Lovitz and Phil Hartman, 1987’s The Brave Little Toaster was a pseudo-Disney movie about… well, the title sort of says it all. It was a childhood favourite for many, but how does it hold up now? Is it actually a prequel to P.T. Anderson’s The Master? Which are better, Pop Tarts or Toaster Strudels? To hear us answer these questions and more, download the link below, or better yet, subscribe on iTunes! And be sure to follow us on Twitter!

Correction: At the end of the podcast, JM refers to the author of the books Thomas Disch as Thomas Kisch. Mainly to make a bad joke.

Episode 53- Gargoyles

Gargoyles is about as dark a product as Disney has ever produced (with the exception of the Satanism at the end of Fantasia and the gleeful racism of Song of the South). From the studio that brought us Tale Spin, Gargoyles was a 1994 children’s cartoon series about legendary Scottish monsters who are awakened in modern day New York by an evil millionaire voiced by, and oddly modeled after Jonathan Frakes. It was awesome when we were kids, but does it hold up now? Download the link below to find out, or better yet, subscribe on iTunes! And be sure to follow us on Twitter!

Episode 38- Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves vs Disney’s Robin Hood

Costner vs Fox, Rickman vs Wolf, Bryan Adams vs a Rooster– this week, on a very special Rewatchability we’re pitting 1991’s Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves against 1973’s Robin Hood, in a battale royale where only one childhood favourite will be declared the most rewatchable. What’s easier to look past, an anthropomorphic fox, or an Englishman with an American accent? Why is Costner’s Maid Marion a Ninja for one scene only? Does Blain know Robin Hood personally? We answer these questions and more! Let us know which Robin Hood you prefer on Twitter, or at rewatchability@gmail.com, and if you enjoy the show, please subscribe on iTunes!

Episode 17- The Santa Clause

Nothing brings a father and son closer together than manslaughter. I think that’s the moral of The Santa Clause, the 1994 Disney picture in which Tim Allen kills jolly old St. Nick, becomes cursed by some kind of ancient elfin black magic, and earns the respect of his son. Did I mention he KILLS SANTA CLAUS?!! IN A DISNEY MOVIE?!! There’s also some stuff with Judge Reinhold, an animatronic reindeer, and a squadron of elves with jet-packs… for some reason.

Is The Santa Clause a Christmas classic, or a cautionary tale against writing screenplays based on an amusing pun? Listen to the podcast to find out!

Episode 17- The Santa Clause

We have two Holiday podcasts left, check back with us next week for our Top 5 Christmas TV Episodes, followed by a rewatch of one of our favourite Christmas films of all time.
