Celebrate the New Year with Episode #12, but Don’t Be A Menace!!!

Posted on

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!

Happy New Year! Get ready for HYSTO#12 – the first of 2017!

Posted on

Hey everyone!  HYSTO? wishes you a very happy new year, and we also want to warn you about announce 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!

Episode #11 is our Christmas Episode Internationale!

Posted on

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!

Love and peace and movies,

Jay

Jay & Paul, only, because Jay forgot to take a picture before Melissa left.  No; I didn’t push her into The Thames: ABFAB REFERENCE!!!  Paul says his Mets hat has significance.  He’s the baseball wiz; I’m taking his word for it…

 

“Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale” – 2010 – from Finland

 

“Das Experiment” – 2001 – from Germany

 

“Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie” – 2016 – from Britain, sweetie darling

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…

Movies announced for Episode #6 – They’re “Evil,” and I’m not “Happy”…

Posted on

So on Episode #5 we announced our movies for the next podcast…and it looks like it’s going to be both Happy and Evil.

I am making Paul watch the one-and-only original horror classic “The Evil Dead” from 1981, directed by Sam Raimi and starring Bruce “The Chin” Campbell.  This movie has so many iconic moments…that Paul will probably not see because he’ll be so skeeved out…which he totally deserves because he let you all vote on which (god help me) Adam Sandler movie to torture me with, and the one that you all voted for was “Happy Gilmore” from 1996.  I don’t blame you all: all the blame is on Paul for this one.  I mean, I just recovered from having to watch a Steven Seagal movie…and now this?  All I can say is let’s how he likes dealing with the Deadites in Evil Dead: he’ll be “DEAD BY DAWN” for sure.  Watch for Episode #6 in a couple of weeks!

Here’s where to watch:

“The Evil Dead” 1981

Available to watch for free on YouTube right here:

“Happy Gilmore” is not available for free (as far as I can tell), but you can rent it for $2.99 on YouTube here:

Happy watching!

Episode #5 is here, and it’s oh so “Divine!”

Posted on

Episode #5 is here, in which we celebrate John Waters and Steven Seagal…sort of.  Paul and I had a blast discussing these movies: Paul said that his life will never be the same after watching Divine star in “Female Trouble” – you’ll have to listen to see whether that’s a good thing or not!  I weigh in on Paul’s choice “Under Siege” starring “action thespian” Steven Seagal.  Will I declare it a Treasure or Torture?  You can probably guess, but you’ll have to listen to be sure!  We also find out which Adam Sandler movie our listeners have picked for me to be tortured with: will it be Happy Gilmore or Billy Madison?  Listen to find out…plus hear what classic horror film I have chosen for Paul to endure for next time!

Happy listening!

 

Paul and Jay display their choices.
