  Arr, this week we set sail for Tortuga with PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL, the theme-park ride turned blockbuster starring Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, Keira Knightly as well as Geoffrey Rush, me Mateys. Swab the deck you scurvy dogs! This movie shivered our timbers when we were younger, but how...

Episode 224- DISNEY’S THE JUNGLE BOOK

WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE BABY! Yer gonna die! Unless you’re rescued by a panther, as occurs in this week’s entry, Walt Disney’s THE JUNGLE BOOK, the 1967 animated film whose re-imagining (helmed by Jon Favreau) is currently bringing the box office to its sha-na-nana-nana-knees. Featuring a lot of old-timey voice actors and singers with names...
Episode 179- DICK TRACY

Episode 179- DICK TRACY

This week on the show we talk about 1990’s Dick Tracy— the nipple-filled Disney movie about how fun it is to murder gangsters. It was a giant cultural moment at the time, but is it any good? To find out, download the link below, or better yet, subscribe on iTunes! And be sure to follow us on Twitter! Episode...
Episode 130- BLANK CHECK

Episode 130- BLANK CHECK

A small boy steals a million dollars, falls in love with an adult woman, and almost kills an escaped convict– yes it’s Disney’s Blank Check! We enjoyed it back when it came out in 1994, but how does it hold up now? To find out, download the link below, or better yet, subscribe on iTunes!...

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...

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...

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....

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...

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...

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...

Episode 11- Hocus Pocus

Cats getting hit by cars, zombies with their mouths sewn shut, nymphomaniac witches, Bette Midler. Doesn’t it all sound a little intense for a Disney film? Not in 1993 it didn’t; Hocus Pocus was originally slated to be a TV movie, but somehow made it to the big screen, and it made a big impression...
