The Rewatchmen - Harry Potter

Harry Potter is coming to an end. Let's take it all the way back to the 2001 Chris Columbus directed Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and see where these kids and this adventure began.

Plus! NEWS and three more excellent transition songs for you folks to email me about.featuring Ben, T.C., and special guest Jasmine.

* my apologies for some microphone issues this week.
** and I mistakenly say this came out in 2003. My bad.

Episode 100 - The Last Starfighter

Celebrate our 100th episode with a sit down conversation about the Last Star Fighter - a movie about a young guy who gets a mysterious object from space that turns out to be the catalyst that takes him across the galaxy to protect the universe from an ancient threat. Kinda sounds like that Green Lantern fella that comes out tomorrow. How convenient.

Featuring the original Rewatchmen: Ben and T.C.

Episode 99 - Close Encounters of the Third Kind

Super 8 wears it's Spielberg-isms proudly on its sleeve. So, do you think you should hop onto NetFlix and watch the 1977 Steven Spielberg cinematic classic about aliens coming to Earth and making contact? Listen to what the Rewatchmen have to say and then decide.

Friday, June 3, 2011

Episode 98 - X-Men (2000)

Okay, okay, we can all admit that the last couple X-Men movies have been less than great. We can all agree that they were pretty much disasters (unless you're that person who says "X-Men 3 is the best one, then you, my simple-minded friend, are an idiot. But I digress).

Forget the mess of X-Men The Last Stand or the wacky X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Let's take it back to the one that started this cinematic mutant craze, Bryan Singer's 2000 "X-Men", and see where we land in preparation of X-Men: First Class.

Episode 97 - Enter the Dragon

Kung Fu Panda's ways are most honorable for it respects the Asian cinema, and who defined Asian cinema more than Mr. Bruce Lee?

Let the Rewatchmen drop some jump kicks of knowledge and punch your brain with a discussion of the only American Lee film "Enter the Dragon". The film that set the standard on tournament films and showed that an Asian James Bond isn't out of the realm of possibility. Join us as we rewatch and maybe you'll see the fat Panda in a different light.

Episode 96 - Dude, Where's My Car?

Sitting on the fence about going out this weekend and seeing the Hangover part 2? Well, suffer through a film like "Dude, Where's My Car?" and learn to appreciate the masterwork by comparison that is the first Hangover. Ashton Kutcher and Sean William Scott should be ashamed of themselves. I'm certainly ashamed of myself for owning a copy of this thing. It came in a two-pack with a movie I wanted! Don't judge me!

Episode 95 - Pirate of the Caribbean - Curse of the Black Pearl

Yar, me mateys! Draw swords and arm the canons!

Pirates 4 is out today, but let's go back to 2003 and see if the one that started this Johnny Depp fellow's career is still any good. Hopefully someone gives him a break someday. He's a pretty good actor. No Orlando Bloom, but he's got potential.

Episode 94 - the Wedding Singer

With Bridesmaid coming out this week, we decided to rewatch another wedding-themed flick: the Wedding Singer, the 1998 Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore romantic comedy that proves (despite Bedtime Stories, Little Nicky, and other such nonsense) that Adam Sandler can pull back and make a great film. Is it worth dusting off your very own copy and giving it a rewatch yourself? Take a listen and find out.

Episode 93 - Team America: World Police

Sure, we don't really keep up with current events here at Rewatchmen HQ, but with Bin Laden knocked off the face of the planet, Ben pulled out the 2004 political satire from the South Park boys. How does this Bush-basing, Hollywood razzing movie hold up in a post-Bush era America? Experience the Jerry Bruckheimer spoof film that is bloody, explosive, hyper-sexually charged... with puppets.

Episode 92 - Kill Bill: the Whole Bloody Affair

A bonus episode for you kids! Today we'll be discussing Kill Bill: the Whole Bloody Affair, the complete film and not the film all broken up into two pieces. Damn you Weinsteins!!

Did we like it more? Did we love it?
Long story short: yes. Now, here's a fifteen minute praise-fest for the work of QT.

Featuring your ever watchful Rewatchmen Ben and T.C.

Episode 91 - Donnie Darko

Once more, we add another entry into our "Overrated Movie Theater"

If you're not aware what that is, this is for movies that people hold up as some of the greatest movies ever made, but really, when was the last time they even watched their beloved film?

Does the 2001 story of a disturbed teen who sees visions of a demonic bunny hold up? Is it worth its following? Did "Mad World" and Tears For Fears get a boost is sales because of this? Listen and find out!

Episode 90 - the Boondock Saints

Here's another entry into our "Overrated Movie Theater"

This is for movies that people hold up as some of the greatest movies ever made, but really, when was the last time they even watched their beloved film?

This week, we take a look at the 1999 Troy Duffy hyper-violent (and curiously homoerotic) vigilante origin story. Is it as good as you remember it? Or is it just a Tarantino rip-off? See where the Rewatchmen land.
