Scarface (1983) - Episode 2

An episode of The Rewind Movie Podcast

By The Rewind Movie Podcast
Drawing on a decade-plus friendship whose roots stretch back to their film-obsessed student days, Gali and Devlin cast an eye backwards to the movies that kickstarted their love of film. In their Throwback series, each will take turns picking a title that they consider seminal to their youth, and watch again to determine whether they wasted their precious childhoods sitting in the dark with these VHS tapes, or if their movie touchstones still hold up today.

Rocky (1976) - Episode 9
Gali has tipped his hand and selected a personal favourite, the archetypal “inspirational sports movie” ROCKY. We follow low-ranking local Philadelphia boxer Rocky Balboa, a soft-centred brute who spends his days enforcing for a local loan shark (while ironically avoiding the use of violence). Lamenting his lack of initiative, confronted with the stagnation of his big fight dreams, and pining for the painfully shy pet store employee he visits every day, his fortunes are changed in an instant when he gets a million-to-one shot at the world heavyweight title held by the slick, charismatic champ Apollo Creed. Written by and starring Sylvester Stallone (before the human growth hormone) we go the distance to review our first film from the 1970s. Will the team eat lighting and crap thunder? Or choke down a pint glass of raw eggs? Seconds out. Round one. Ding. Ding.

The Monster Squad (1987) - Episode 8
Welcome to the show, BAND-AID BREATH. Patrick’s first ever podcast selection is the 1987 kids-versus-creatures adventure comedy The Monster Squad. When Dracula, The Wolfman, Frankenstein’s Monster, The Mummy and The Creature from the Black Lagoon converge on a small town in search of a sacred amulet that controls the fate of the world, only a motley gang of preteen horror fiends are qualified to stand in their way. With a script co-written by the original superstar screenwriter Shane Black and effects created by the legendary Stan Winston, we revisit Fred Dekker’s sophomore directorial effort. Wolfman may have nards, but does this film have legs? Or will our podcasters toss(metaphorical) dynamite in to the clubhouse?

Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982) - Episode 7
BOO! It’s Devlin’s favourite time of year, and he’s selected the strange outlier of the Halloween franchise, 1982’s Halloween III: Season of the Witch. A near-catatonic patient is brutally killed on Dr Dan Challis’ (Tom Atkins) shift, and the mysterious assailant sets himself ablaze. Desperate to make sense of this, Dan accompanies the murdered man’s daughter to the factory of Conal Cochrane (Dan O’Herlihy), Halloween mask entrepreneur and small-town philanthropist, to investigate. Robots full of lemon curd, drunk doctoring, stolen 'henge', and an advertising jingle that’ll burrow in to your head like a tonne of bugs – join Gali, Devlin and Rewind Movie Podcast debutant Patrick to see if we’re in for a treat, or a trick (like, say, sticky toilet paper, or the Dead Dwarf Gag).

Boogie Nights (1997) - Episode 6 PART 2
PART 2 Gali has chosen to mark the passing of the peerless Burt Reynolds by revisiting the Paul Thomas Anderson (PTA) porn industry epic, Boogie Nights. 17 year old Eddie Adams has one special gift. And pornographic film auteur Jack Horner intends to share that gift, making Eddie the biggest star in the world (in all senses) as the dashing Dirk Diggler. But, all may not be as rosy as it seems in the San Fernando Valley as drugs, hubris and violence creep in when the day-glo 1970s meet the me-generation 1980s. Devlin and Gali head to the Hot Traxx to watch a movie which they both found a huge inspiration in late adolescence (not for the reasons you might think!), discuss the influence PTA has had on them, and try and sound all serious while simultaneously talking about enormous genitals.

Demons (1985) - Episode 5
As the dark nights draw in and autumn clamps its icy jaws around the last squirming remnants of summer, Devlin reminisces about his first brush with an actual horror movie: Lamberto Bava’s Italo-splatter mainstay Demons. A mysterious masked stranger invites a motley selection of viewers to a grand picture-house for a free movie screening they’ll never forget, as the infernal shenanigans on screen spill out in to the auditorium itself and turn the assembled audience in to murderous, possessed…well, demons. Soft rock punks scraping cocaine out of car upholstery, the world’s saddest anniversary night out, Chekov’s samurai sword and Berlin’s best pimp. What will first time viewer Gali make of this hot nonsense? Will Devlin find his childhood memories popped like a giant green hell-pimple? It’s all in this episode of The Rewind Movie Podcast!

The Silence of the Lambs (1991) - Episode 4
Gali's pick takes us to dark places this time out, as we follow trainee FBI Agent Clarice Starling to the cell of the brutal man-eater Hannibal Lector in the 1991 OSCAR-winning classic, The Silence of the Lambs. As she follows the clues laid by one monster in order to catch another and save the life of a young woman from his clutches. Jodie Foster's Clarice has to also face her own difficult past, and the watchful eyes of her male law enforcement colleagues. Featuring an iconic Anthony Hopkins performance, Jonathan Demme's thriller/horror (delete as appropriate) is ready for Gali and Devlin to carve up and serve. Will it be bon appétit, or will they find it leaves a sour taste after all these years? We would love to hear from you!!!

Predator 2 (1990) - Episode 3
In this sequel to the beloved Arnie classic, Devlin becomes the hunter and baits Gali into a potential rant as they find Predator 2 in their crosshairs. The Predator is doing some sight-seeing in LA, and Danny Glover is somehow the only one who can stop him. This has it all: sun, sweat, gangs and Gary Busey. Before Jack Black in 'I Still Know What You Did Last Summer', Predator 2 held the trophy for the most ridiculous depiction of a Jamaican character. The door swings both ways- how will Gali and Devlin rate this film now that they are no longer 8 years old?! Lets go Back to the Future (1997) and see the lions, tigers and bears, oh my.

Scarface (1983) - Episode 2
This time out, Gali has picked Brian De Palma's classic 1983 gangster movie, SCARFACE. Al Pacino inhabits one of his most iconic roles as the ambitious Cuban immigrant Tony Montana. We follow as he scales the drug trade in Miami, from lowly enforcer to gilded kingpin. Put on your dancing shoes, turn up the neon, and rush rush to the yeyo: with ethnologically questionable casting and a killer soundtrack, will Gali and Devlin get high on their own supply, or grab the chainsaw and cut the movie to pieces?

Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (1994) Episode 1
With the first pick, Devlin chooses Kenneth Branagh's Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. Hot on the heels of Bram Stoker's Dracula, we examine this obstensibly faithful adaptation (hence the authorial namecheck!) Genius young physician-in-training Victor Frankenstein (Branagh himself) uses personal tragedy as the catalyst for his quest to defy death itself, by creating an entirely new life, but soon finds that there are consequences to dabbling in the realms of the gods. Featuring floppy dancing, quasi-incestuous relationships, John Cleese's giant teeth and Robert De Niro as Sloth from the Goonies's angry older brother, will Gali and Devlin find a jolt of pure electricity, or just a table full of decaying meat parts?

Rewind Movie Podcast - Introduction
Drawing on a decade-plus friendship whose roots stretch back to their film-obsessed student days, Gali and Devlin cast an eye backwards to the movies that kickstarted their love of film. In their Throwback series, each will take turns picking a title that they consider seminal to their youth, and watch again to determine whether they wasted their precious childhoods sitting in the dark with these VHS tapes, or if their movie touchstones still hold up today. Join them, and their occasional special guest co-hosts, as they take a deep dive in to their collective cultural memory bin and root around for an answer to the question: "why do we love movies?"
