We’re back with Episode #14! And, in honor of recording during Superbowl weekend, Paul made me watch The Program from 1993, which (among many other sports-movie things) tries to show us the tragic effects of steroid abuse…
…AND I finally made Paul watch the original 1980 classic Friday the 13th!!!…which he watched through his fingers while he waited Jason to show up the whole time.
We hope you’ll join us for the fun as we discuss these incredibly disparate films, and then announce what cinematic cyanide we’ve assigned each other for next time!
Hello friends! I’m happy to report that I survived watching three, that’s right, THREE Jean-Claude Van Damme movies for this epic Van Damme episode, and, yes, this whole thing was Paul’s idea (like you had to ask).
We had many, many films to choose from, but the ones we ended up with were, in chronological order, Bloodsport, Lionheart, and Timecop. Please join me, Paul, and our special guest and good friend Keith Karseno as we discuss these cinematic masterpieces and I try to remember which movie is which…
As always we also talk about what we’ve been watching lately (I’m obsessed with The Neon Demon right now…) AND we announce what films we’ll dissect for episode #14. Come on along: you’ll have a Van Damme good time!
Happy new year, everyone! Paul and I welcomed the year by doing our favorite thing…making each other watch movies! Paul assigned me “Don’t Be A Menace To South Central While Drinking Your Juice In The Hood” and I finally popped Paul’s Dario Argento cherry with the classic giallo “Deep Red” (aka “Profondo Rosso”). We’ve got black-leather-glove-clad killers and rude African-American stereotypes galore, so won’t you join us? If you do you’ll also hear about our next episode, #13, which is guaranteed to Van Damme us all to hell (pun intended). Also: listen as I accuse Paul of trying to break up with me. Ciao!
Hey everyone! HYSTO? wishes you a very happy new year, and we also want to warn you aboutannounce what movies will be under our microscope for Episode #12! I have chosen to FINALLY expose Paul to one of my favorite directors: Dario Argento. I chose one of Argento’s most beloved gialli, Profondo Rosso (Deep Red), from 1975. Paul’s pick for me to watch is 1996’s Don’t Be A Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood; definitely the longest title of any film we have discussed thus far. (Hopefully after I watch it I can say more about it than that.)
Look for us to post #12 around January 9th! Until then, everyone have a safe and semi-sane new year! See you in ’17!
Hello all, and welcome to our Christmas Episode Internationale! We only talk about one Christmas movie, but all the movies are from other countries (and I got a taste of French cooking, to boot). Paul and I discuss my choice, from Finland, “Rare Exports,” then Paul and I mull over “Das Experiment,” his pick from Germany. After that we welcome our guest Melissa McDowell (from the website “Eat The Word in 52 Weeks” @ eat52weeks.com, check it out…) and we all talk about the fan-fest that is “Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie,” which is from Britain, natch (Melissa and I are huge fans). I surprise Paul and Melissa with a quiz, and we also announce our choices for the first movies we watch in 2017. You also don’t want to miss Paul’s TERRIBLE German accent, or the excitement that ensues when I have to pause the recording (for the first time ever) because of a JAIL BREAK! Hope you can join us for the fun, AND I hope you all have a happy and safe holiday season!
We made it to Episode #10 (!) and, boy, did I ever torture Paul this time: I made him watch The Apple from 1980 (our very first musical…and Paul hopes it’s the last…fat chance!) But, before that, we talk about Paul’s recommendation for me, The Taking Of Pelham One Two Three from 1974. Paul also shares his “Paul-Park Figures” and we see who’s ahead at this point, then we each rank the 10 movies that we made each other watch (so far) from best to worst. Please join us for the penultimate episode of 2016…and find out what movies we’re discussing for our special Christmas Episode Internationale (featuring our friend and special guest Melissa McDowell, from the blog “Eat The World In 52 Weeks” at eat52weeks.com). Join us, won’t you?
Hello friends, and Happy Thanksgiving! If you listened to Episode #9 (and if you haven’t what are you waiting for?) you know that Paul has chosen 1974’s The Taking of Pelham One Two Three and I picked the film The Apple from 1980. Yes: I finally hit Paul with a musical, and he’s not thrilled one bit (heh heh heh). Look for Episode #10 to appear in December, and meanwhile…enjoy your turkey!
Happy holidays everyone, and welcome to our very first VERY SPECIAL HALLOWEEN SPECIAL!!! In this oh-so-special episode I take Paul to task over his choice, “Ankle Biters” (2002) (trust me: he deserves it…) We then discuss my choice: the controversial (in its time) “Halloween 3” (1982). We also welcome our friend and special guest filmmaker and fellow podcaster Knives Monroe from “Outer Haeven – The Knives Monroe Podcast,” who chose for us the modern classic “The Babadook” (2014). All of this, some spooky tunes, and (of course) we announce our choices for the next episode! Join us, won’t you? I need witnesses to hear about the cinematic pain that Paul has subjected me to…
Episode #007 is shaken, stirred, and blended for your listening pleasure, Mr. Bond!
Please join us in welcoming our dear friend Keith Karseno as he dares to become our first Special Guest ever! He makes us watch a horror classic: “Killer Klowns from Outer Space!” Be sure to tune in as all three of us discuss my choice for the Halloween season “Trick’r Treat,” and Paul and I discuss his choice for me, “Crooklyn,” “a Spike Lee Joint” (as Mr. Lee would say). Join in the fun as we dissect these cinematic treasures! We also announce our choices for next week (yes, next week!) when we present…
“A Very Special Halloween Special!”
…with special guest filmmaker and podcaster Knives Monroe, from “Outer Haeven: The Knives Monroe Podcast.“ And as you listen to our podcast, know that Keith and Paul had no mercy on me during the dart games that took place the day we recorded. I’m just saying…
Join us for Episode #6 as I succumb to the evil Listener’s Choice “Happy Gilmore” and Paul falls prey to the horror classic “The Evil Dead” (my choice, my pleasure, my vengeance). Will Paul survive this demon-filled gorefest? Will I come in under par with Happy Gilmore? Listen to find out, and also hear what movies we’ve chosen for Episode #7!!!
