There are few better ways to spend an evening or lazy Sunday than getting sucked into a classic old movie you’ve seen a million times when you come across it on TV. You know the ones: Dazed and Confused. Rounders. Major League. Fast Five. You’ve seen it, you love it, you can karaoke the dialogue without flubbing a line, and you can’t help getting sucked in for the 18th time.
Our friends at The Ringer love these movies so much they created a podcast about them: The Rewatchables. Each week, Bill Simmons and the pop-culture addicts at The Ringer take on a new Rewatchable and break the discussion into categories: What’s the most rewatchable scene? What’s aged the best? What’s aged the worst? Casting What-ifs! Who won the movie?
This has been one of our favorite podcasts since it launched in 2015, and every time we listen we want to rush to the nearest TV and watch the movie they just discussed. So we partnered with The Ringer to collect some of our favorite episodes, and put them together with the movies in the Sling app. It’s like chocolate and peanut butter, salt and pepper, Turner and Hooch!
Even better, we got a peek at The Rewatchables’ editorial calendar, so we have their next bunch of movies queued up for you so you can prepare and listen with each movie fresh on your mind. (Or listen first and then rewatch. Do you, friend.)
Just look for “The Rewatchables” in the MyTV section of the app. Here are the past movies and episodes we’ve paired for you:
Happy Rewatching — see you on Apex Mountain!
