Rewind This! is somewhat lacking in big-name first-hand accounts. But where the film is on firmer territory is in championing those lovers of the format who have ignored DVD, Blu-ray and digital downloads in favour of keeping the VHS dream alive.July 19, 2018 | Rating: 6.7/10 | Full Review…
Audience Reviews for Rewind This!
Sep 16, 2013These people are rad as fuck! I'm seriously in love with this movie and I'm not even a huge doc. fan. It was funny like I expected, but also had a shit ton of info on VHS and really just film and that generation (80s/90s) in general, which was awesome. You can tell these dudes are genuine (except for the hipster douche with the gigantaur glasses who probably has 20/20 vision). Plus they all looked like they were about to cry at least once in the movie, which is what pure nostalgia feels like. you could totally see it all over their faces. and there are a bunch of badass old movies that definitely need to be checked out after watching this (Deadly Prey, Street Trash, Frankenhooker, Dead Next Door, Brain Damage, Basket Case.) but most importantly, THEY NEED TO RELEASE THIS ON VHS!!!! like now. I'd fucking buy it!Stevie S Super Reviewer
