Description

Nostalgia is a funny thing. Four friends discussing it is even funnier. Join us as we reflect on some of the best and worst movies from last century and rewatch them together On Second Watch. Did they get better with age? Worse? Only one way to find out...

Join Tim, Chris, Dana, and Spaz as we plunge head first into the movies we grew up on and discuss our nostalgia for them. Then, we'll watch the movie, jump back on the mics, and record our observations. We'll provide both our Nostalgia Score and Rewatch Score to see if the movie aged well, or if it should stay in last century.

We interrupt to talk to you about James Mangold’s 1999 American psychological drama, “Girl, Interrupted”. Starring Winona Ryder, Angelina Jolie, Brittany Murphy, Whoopi Goldberg, Elisabeth Moss, Angela Bettis, and Jared Leto.This is a film that everyone EXCEPT Spaz has seen and his experience watching this movie was surprising to say the least. This film left an impact on Tim, Chris, and Dana when they saw it in the early 2000’s, but the big question is will it leave a similar impact today?Tim pulled off a miracle and managed to have a Q&A with the one and only James Mangold to discuss how this movie came to be, how James approached the screenplay, and his favorite memories. To read the entire Q&A, head to OSWpodcast.com----------Since May is designated Mental Health Awareness Month and we dedicated this movie to mental health, it didn’t feel fitting to have a sponsor for this episode. Instead, we wanted to direct our listeners to the non-profit To Write Love on Her Arms. They are dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide. We strongly encourage everyone to follow this movement on social media as they provide great insights and hope through wonderful posts.We love you all!
This is On Second Watch, and we’re talkin' to whoever's listenin' out there. Hop aboard the Pork Chop Express as we take a wild ride with John Carpenter’s 1986 cult classic, “Big Trouble in Little China”. Staring Kurt Russell, Kim Cattrall, James Hong, and the one and only Gerald Okamura, who joins us for a great interview about his experience with this film. Surprising no one, Dana has never seen this movie, and it was a whirlwind of emotions. Tim and Chris lost respect for one another, and Spaz was too busy getting push notifications on his phone. Does this cult classic still reign as one of the kings of all cult classics? Just do what ol’ Jack Burton would do and listen to On Second Watch.----------Huge thanks to CanvasPeople for sponsoring this episode.

If you’re waiting for a train, this is it. Join us as we fanboy over Christopher Nolan and his masterpiece “INCEPTION”. This film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Ken Watanabe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy, Dileep Rao, Cillian Murphy, Tom Berenger, and Michael Caine. Dana has seen this one (GASP) and provides a lot of analysis. Spaz was pre-gaming before the recording and was in some sort of half-remembered dream. Chris regrets everything and Tim has some beef with the so-called “Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences”.Let Christopher Nolan and Hans Zimmer transport you into a dream within a dream while we try to break it all down, including what the ending really means to us.Is this movie still one of the best of all time? Did Hans Zimmer melt our brains? Did Spaz make really inappropriate comments that had to be edited out? (spoiler alert: yes)Dream bigger darlings and let’s explore another episode of On Second Watch.----------Huge thanks to Podcorn for sponsoring this episode.

Hop aboard the Orca and join the hunt for the original summer blockbuster, "Jaws". This thriller from 1975 stars Richard Dreyfuss, Roy Scheider, and Robert Shaw. Dive into how director Steven Spielberg and composer John Williams created this masterpiece against all odds.Dana had never seen this movie before (shocking!) and made the most accurate plot prediction ever. Spaz was distracted by his own feeding frenzy while Chris and Tim navigate this adventure. When you combine Spielberg and Williams, you’re almost guaranteed to have a great experience.Does this movie still hold up as one of the best summer movies of all time? Did a series of failures make this movie better? Is Tim obsessed with John Williams? How many different types of food does Spaz mention in a single recording? Grab your fishing pole and head for the pier for this episode of On Second Watch.----------Special thanks to David W.

Join us as we explore Michael Bay's explosive directorial debut, "Bad Boys". This action comedy from 1995 stars Will Smith and Martin Lawrence.Tim and Dana had never seen this movie before so they made their best effort to guess what the plot was based on what they know of Michael Bay. Safe bet: Explosions and racial stereotypes. Chris and Spaz provide their nostalgic memory of the film. Spoiler alert: one of their memories were on point, while the other was wrong about 90% of the plot.Does the movie warrant multiple sequels? Does Martin Lawrence's back hurt after carrying this movie? How many sub plots can one movie have? What was the point of the main sub plot? What's with the detectives dressing as garbage men again? Grab some Skittles and Tropical Fruit Bubblicious and hear our thoughts on these points and more on our first episode of On Second Watch.
