Episode #131 – The Man In The Moon – aka Reese Witherspoon slays in her first film role!

Greetings HYSTOphiles! Welcome to Episode #131, where we discuss the film where Reese Witherspoon absolutely shines in her screen debut! It’s Keith’s choice: 1991’s The Man In The Moon.

She shines! She also swims…

I usually don’t show my hand when I post here, but this movie was so wonderful I just can’t hide how much I enjoyed it!

I’ll say it again: she shines!

Naturally we also talk about what’s been entertaining us lately, and I let Keith know what movie he’ll be watching next time.

We hope you join our movie party, because we really do want to know…

The Man In The Moon – 1991

#130 is full of REVENGE! “For Love Of The Game” & “Zaat”…CINEMA TORTURE IS BACK!

Who’s Zaat?

Welcome to HYSTO? Episode #130! This time around Keith and I are the victims, while our good friends Shawna West and Paul Kastava get their Cinematic Revenge! Yes, they have each chosen a movie that they are SURE is going to torture us both!

First up is Paul’s choice, the Kevin Costner baseball flick from 1999, For Love Of The Game.

I mean, Kevin Costner in a baseball movie? Really? Who would have thought?!?!

Paul knows that the easiest way to torture me is to make watch a sports-themed movie, but will this movie equally cause sports-fan Keith anguish? We’ll see…

After that, we tackle Shawna’s pick, the 1971 creature feature extraordinaire, Blood Waters Of Dr. Z, aka Legend of the Zaat Monster, aka Hydra, aka Attack Of The Swamp Creatures, aka ZAAT!

What’s Zaat?

As you can tell by the above photos of Zaat, the filmmakers spared no expense when filming this magical monster movie. I assure you that every bit of that $1.98 is up on that screen!

Naturally we all share what has been entertaining us lately, and Keith announces what movie he has in store for me for episode #131…AFTER Keith and I place our votes for which film was the most torturous on this episode.

We really had a lot fun recording this one, and we really do hope you join our movie party because we really do want to know…

Episode #129 celebrates our 5th Anniversary! Higher Learning & Amèlie!

Greetings HYSTOphiles, and welcome to our 5th Anniversary Celebration! Helping us celebrate is our good friend (and our good luck charm) Kellie Arnold! Keith and I, once again, have chosen two movies that couldn’t be more different from each other.

First up is Keith’s choice: the John Singleton film Higher Learning, from 1995. This movie stars so many people that are famous now…it’s insane!

Laurence Fishburne, Omar Epps, and Ice Cube are just the tip of the “ice” berg…ha ha…

My choice is the 2001 French masterpiece Amèlie. Kellie is joining us because this is her absolute favorite movie of all time!

Starring the unbelievably charming Audrey Tautou…

Of course we also talk about what has been entertaining us lately, then Keith and Kellie and I talk about what we think are the best and worst movies that we have covered over the last five years!

We hope you join us for our 5th Anniversary celebration, because we really do want to know…
