The Rock (1996) - Episode 56

Season 3, Ep. 56
What do you say we cut the CHIT-CHAT, A-HOLE?! Or not, as the case may be, as the gang gets together for a listener request episode and discusses Michael Bay’s incendiary Simpson/Bruckheimer action landmark THE ROCK.Chemical superfreak FBI expert Stanley Goodspeed (Nicolas Cage, kicking off his unlikely but lucrative action star run) is drafted in to advise when disgruntled former Black Ops specialist General Francis X. Hummel (Ed Harris) swipes a pile of experimental rockets and takes control of Alcatraz Prison, threatening to vaporise San Francisco if his ransom demands for restitution for his fallen comrades isn’t met. Enter the only man to successfully break out of the infamous institution - British spy John Mason (Sean Connery), whose unique knowledge of the layout leads Goodspeed and a crew of special forces in for a rescue mission that results in much patented Bayhem.With thanks to listener Louis Naum, Gali, Devlin, Patrick & Matt head to the slammer to discuss the halcyon days of the mid-90s actioner, where brash and brawny bros crafted unapologetically brain-bypassing spectacles. But has the film aged like a fine vintage Connery, or is this missile a dud?Outro Song -'"Jailbird" (1994) - Primal ScreamIf you have any questions, comments or ideas for future episodes you can contact us on Twitter @rewindmoviepodcast or@galithegreek(Gali),(@quilllicker(Devlin) and @mdridley (Matt) and join our Facebook Group at https://www.facebook.com/rewindmoviecast/ or email us at rewindmoviepodcast@gmail.comThank you for listening and if you like the show please press that subscribe button and leave us a little review, MANY THANKS!!!

Wild Things (1998) - Episode 55

Season 3, Ep. 55
“That's murder, kid.” We’re wallowing in the seamy, seedy and sleazy side of cinema with a new RErotica series. Following our delve into the Sharon Stone classic Basic Instinct, we’re back with another foray into a...formative film experience for several of our panel - John McNaughton’s nefarious, naughty 1998 neo-noir Wild Things.Popular high school guidance counsellor Sam Lombardo (Matt Dillon) is accused of sexual assault by two students - imperiously wealthy society princess Kelly Van Ryan (Denise Richards) and twitchy trailer park denizen Suzie Toller (Neve Campbell). A dizzying array of double-crosses and betrayals follows as loose cannon cop Ray Duquette (Kevin Bacon) ignores his superiors’ instructions and pursues the seemingly closed case.An infamous late-night TV classic of the 90s, our ostensibly more mature gang look to see if there’s more to enjoy beyond its more infamous scenes. You know the ones. Join Gali, Devlin, Patrick & Matt as they take a trip to wealthy Blue Bay for a head-rush cocktail of teen trash, black comedy and twisty thriller.Outro Song -"Given the Dog a Bone" (1980) by AC/DCIf you have any questions, comments or ideas for future episodes you can contact us on Twitter @rewindmoviepodcast or@galithegreek(Gali),(@quilllicker(Devlin), (@PatrickWaggett(Patrick) and @mdridley (Matt), and join our Facebook Group at https://www.facebook.com/rewindmoviecast/ or email us at rewindmoviepodcast@gmail.comThank you for listening and if you like the show please press that subscribe button and leave us a little review, MANY THANKS!!!

Full Metal Jacket (1987) - Episode 54

Season 3, Ep. 54
Is that you, John Wayne? Is this me? Today’s choice comes courtesy of Matt, who has picked Stanley Kubrick’s 1987 Vietnam nightmare Full Metal Jacket.Smart-mouthed recruit Pvt. Joker (Matthew Modine), as he’s quickly named by his ruthless new drill instructor (R. Lee Ermey), arrives with his fellow recruits at Parris Island for a hellacious training session. The main target of the instructor’s ire, the clumsy and ill-prepared Pvt. Pyle (Vincent D’Onofrio), puts a brutal full stop on this section, before we are whisked off to the frontline with Joker, now a correspondent with a military magazine. Bullets and bodies ensue.Joining Pvt. Ridley in the trenches, Gali, Devlin and Patrick discuss the tremendous task of transforming an East London gas works into a theatre of war, the unusual bipartite structure of the film, and Kubrick’s famously exacting directorial style. Outro Song -'"War" (1970) - Edwin StarrPlease check out the Mark Milsome Foundation - https://www.markmilsomefoundation.com/ This foundation was inspired by the achievements, character and unique nature of our respected friend and colleague, Mark Milsome who was killed whilst filming a car stunt in Ghana in November 2017.If you have any questions, comments or ideas for future episodes you can contact us on Twitter @rewindmoviepodcast or@galithegreek(Gali),(@quilllicker(Devlin) and @mdridley (Matt) and join our Facebook Group at https://www.facebook.com/rewindmoviecast/ or email us at rewindmoviepodcast@gmail.comThank you for listening and if you like the show please press that subscribe button and leave us a little review, MANY THANKS!!!

The Big Lebowski (1998) - Episode 53

Season 3, Ep. 53
Mind if I do a J? We’re drifting along with a tumbling tumbleweed to the City of Angels for an encounter with The Dude in the Coen Brothers’ shambling stoner noir comedy classic The Big Lebowski.The Dude, AKA Jeffrey Lebowski, finds his simple life of bowling, dairy-based cocktails and copious weed intake upended by a case of mistaken identity rug-peeing. Seeking restitution from his ornery millionaire namesake, The Dude is thrown into a kidnapping plot involving nihilist techno bands, strongly vaginal performance artists, stonewalling teenagers, suave pornographers and fascist Police chiefs. Aided/hindered by his hair-trigger Vietnam vet buddy Walter, severed toes and weaponised marmots ensue, with iconic performances from Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi and more.First time Rewinder and fellow film school buddy Joe introduces us to a film that is among the most influential and beloved from his formative years. Alongside Gali, Devlin and Matt, the gang chat about a once-ambivalently received oddity that flourished into a full-blown religion. Way to go Donnie!Outro Song -'"Lookin' out My Back Door" (1970) - Creedance Clearwater RevivalIf you have any questions, comments or ideas for future episodes you can contact us on Twitter @rewindmoviepodcast or@galithegreek(Gali),(@quilllicker(Devlin) and @mdridley (Matt) and join our Facebook Group at https://www.facebook.com/rewindmoviecast/ or email us at rewindmoviepodcast@gmail.comThank you for listening and if you like the show please press that subscribe button and leave us a little review, MANY THANKS!!!

The Misfits (1961) - Episode 52

Season 3, Ep. 52
We’re travelling back to the fading embers of the Hollywood Golden Age with John Huston’s 1961 elegiac lament The Misfits, written by legendary playwright Arthur Miller for his then-wife Marilyn Monroe, who stars alongside “The King of Hollywood” Clark Gable, Montgomery Clift, Eli Wallach and Thelma Ritter.Monroe stars as Roslyn, a recent divorcee who finds herself unmoored in Reno, Nevada and drifting in to the orbit of aging cowboy charmer Gay (Gable) and temperamental mechanic/pilot Guido (Wallach). The triangle becomes an unsteady rhombus when they pick up punch-drunk rodeo rider Perce (Clift), and head out into the wilderness outside of the city to hunt for mustang. A monochrome, melancholy mood piece, it was a financial flop on its release, and several of its stars and creative team held the film in disregard, while others considered it among their best work.A film marked by tragedy, this features the final completed performances of both Monroe and Gable, who sadly died only days after filming concluded, and also marked one of Clift’s final films. Dissolving marriages, dependencies on drugs and alcohol, and fractious tempers marked a tortuous shoot, but one that resulted in a film that this episode’s film picker Devlin holds a great deal of affection for. Will first-time viewers Gali and Matt, and 2nd time viewer Patrick, share his enthusiasm, or will it all be too sad to bear?Outro Song -'"Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys" (1975) by Ed BruceIf you have any questions, comments or ideas for future episodes you can contact us on Twitter @rewindmoviepodcast or@galithegreek(Gali),(@quilllicker(Devlin), (@PatrickWaggett(Patrick) and @mdridley (Matt), and join our Facebook Group at https://www.facebook.com/rewindmoviecast/ or email us at rewindmoviepodcast@gmail.comThank you for listening and if you like the show please press that subscribe button and leave us a little review, MANY THANKS!!!

The NICE List Christmas Special PART II - SANTA CLAUS: THE MOVIE (1985) / LOVE ACTUALLY (2003)

Season 3, Ep. 51
FOR FREEEEEEEEE?!?! Merry Christmas listeners, have we got a lump of coal for you! Gali, Devlin, Patrick and Matt have each picked a festive favourite, and our choices lent themselves to compiling two separate episodes where each we discuss why these films are our perennial, go-to holiday films.We begin the Nice List with Patrick introducing the Salkind-produced British-American coproduction SANTA CLAUS: THE MOVIE, starring David Huddleston as the man himself, who ascends from a beloved toymaker in 14th Century Germany to the immortal, jolly symbol of Christmas cheer. However, ambitious elf Patch (Dudley Moore) unknowingly threatens to derail everything when he gets wrapped up with ruthless toy company executive B.Z. (a full ham John Lithgow) and his madcap plans for CHRISTMAS 2!Gali follows this up with Richard Curtis’ seminal multi-strand rom-com LOVE ACTUALLY. A murderer’s row of (mostly) British thesps swear, bumble, emote and quip their way through stories that range from a grieving stepdad comforting his stepson via drums and Titanic, to a sassy Prime Minister who has the hots for the tea lady, via a long-shot comeback by an addled old rock star among many others.We want to thank you all for listening in our rambling chats throughout this year, hope you’ve enjoyed them, and wish you a restful and hopefully movie-fuelled festive break. We’re excited to talk to you all again in 2021!Outro Song -'It's Christmas All Over the World' (1985) - Sheena EastonIf you have any questions, comments or ideas for future episodes you can contact us on Twitter @rewindmoviepodcast or@galithegreek(Gali),(@quilllicker(Devlin), (@PatrickWaggett(Patrick) and @mdridley (Matt), and join our Facebook Group at https://www.facebook.com/rewindmoviecast/ or email us at rewindmoviepodcast@gmail.comThank you for listening and if you like the show please press that subscribe button and leave us a little review, MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
