Episode 86- THE LAND BEFORE TIME

Episode 86- THE LAND BEFORE TIME

This week on Rewatchability we chat about Don Bluth’s 1988 tearjerker The Land of Time, the timeless (pun intended) story of a small dinosaur named Littlefoot’s quest to travel from one crappy place to another nicer place. While on his journey, every horrible thing you could possibly imagine happens to this kid– his mother dies, he gets chased by a T-Rex named Sharptooth… I guess that’s just two things. Plus the whole thing’s narrated by Commissioner Gordon!

It was one of our favourites as kids, but how does the movie hold up now? Is it too sad for kids? Why does Don Bluth hate children? What did George Lucas cut out of this movie? Why did they make so many sequels to this movie? Why do we talk so much about Family Feud in this episode?

Episode 57- Indiana Jones: The Trilogy + 1

It’s Indiana Jones week on Rewatchability– we rewatched Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Temple of Doom, The Last Crusade, and apparently The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull wasn’t a fever dream I had in 2008, it was a real movie. Made by adults…. *cough*

Are the first three as good as we remember? Is the fourth one as bad as we remember? To find out download the link below, or better yet, subscribe on iTunes! And be sure to follow us on Twitter!

Episode 40- Willow

For our 40th episode of Rewatchability, we’re treating you (or disappointing you) to our fabled lost Willow podcast. Yes, Willow, Ron Howard’s 1988 fantasy film based on a story on George Lucas which was based on every other fantasy story of the past 100 years. Willow seems to be a very divisive film– some wholeheartedly embrace it (it has a wonderful lead performance by Warwick Davis) whereas others find it derivative and guilty of casting Kevin Pollack as a Tinkerbell-esque pixie. At the very least we can all agree, Val Kilmer is probably an insane person. Click on the link below to hear the episode, or better yet subscribe on iTunes! And be sure to follow us on Twitter!

Episode 40- Willow

In the episode I attest that Warwick Davis’ best friend in Willow looks like Martin Scorcese, Blain thinks I’m crazy. You be the judge, check out a side-by-side comparison below–

Episode 26- Star Wars: Episode 1- The Phantom Menace 3D

It’s back and more extraneously priced than ever! Yes it’s Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace, this time in glorious, well not glorious, but it’s in 3D… and this is just the first of six 3-D re-releases for the Star Wars franchise. Despite the reputation it’s earned, we honestly went into this screening with open minds. Did we enjoy Episode 1 the second time around? Why does Liam Neeson keep touching everybody? Was Red Tails George Lucas’ apology for Jar Jar Binks? Why do kids love trade disputes so darn much? We answer these questions and more!

There is some audio glitching at the end of the episode. Our hard drive needs a Midichlorian upgrade. Sorry about that.

Episode 16- Star Wars Holiday Special

For the first of our holiday-themed episodes we discuss Star Wars… not the classic film, but the poorly conceived, badly-executed 1978 Christmas special. And by Christmas, I mean Life Day– the annual Wookie celebration of, well, Life I guess. It’s at least notable as being the only Star Wars story co-written by Bruce Vilanch… And for those of you who care so much about whether Han or Greedo shot first, it doesn’t matter, because Greedo’s alive! And he’s hanging out with Bea Arthur!

The Star Wars Holiday Special is clearly terrible, but is it still funny? It used to be the wacky black sheep of George Lucas’ franchise, but after three epically crappy prequels and new needlessly “special” editions of the originals, the Star Wars universe has sadly become a flock of black sheep . Is it better or worse than Episode 1? Is Jefferson Starship the Achilles heel of The Empire? Is Chewbacca a deadbeat dad? Why does animated Han look like Neil Gaiman? We attempt to answer these questions and more!

Episode 16- Star Wars Holiday Special

Next week,Thurs. Dec. 15,  we’ll be back with another festive blast of Yuletide nostalgia, whether you like it or not.
