KYD 079 - The Cutting Edge
Sharpen up your skates, darlings...this month Dan & Chrysten are revisiting the ultimate sick day movie: The Cutting Edge!  Just reading the title makes you feel it, right?  The smell of the ice, the thrill of competition, the excitement of young love! When captain of the 1988 USA Olympic hockey team, Doug Dorsey (D.B. Sweeney) sustains an injury during a game, he thinks his career on the ice is over.  Until he receives an offer to become the figure skating partner to notorious ice queen, Kate Moseley (Moira Kelly).  Sparks fly between well-bred, uptight Kate and relaxed and groovy blue-collar Doug immediately...but will their feelings for each other as well as a controversial and dangerous move called the Pamchenko help them to win Olympic gold?  Will your hosts give this movie a perfect 6.0?  Join us and find out!  And don't forget to RATE, REVIEW & SUBSCRIBE!    Please check out our guest episode on the ScreamQueenz podcast and donate to their fundraiser for New Alternatives!  CLICK THE LINK: https://fundraise.newalternativesnyc.org/fundraiser/1706592
KYD 078 - Scream
Do you like scary movies?  Ah, a question that has become so deeply a part of the lexicon that it almost rivals Hamlet's "To be or not to be?"  This month, your hosts delve into the film that many credit as single-handedly saving the entire horror genre...Wes Craven's 90s horror/comedy hybrid Scream! Starring a hot, young cast of 90s idols, our story focuses on Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), a normal teenage girl in a normal American small town, Sidney faces the same daily trials that every normal American teenager faces: should she have sex with her boyfriend Billy (Skeet Ulrich)?  Should she go to that drunken party at a friend's house?  But after a few of Sidney's classmates are brutally murdered, Sidney starts getting a series of threatening phone calls from the supposed murderer.  And we come to find out that things in Sidney's life aren't nearly so simple anymore!  With a cast rounded out by Rose McGowan, Matthew Lillard, Jamie Kennedy, Courteney Cox, David Arquette and Henry Winkler, Scream promises everything that title indicates!   Now, Dan has never seen it and Chrysten hasn't seen it since she was a teenager.  After watching, will our hosts be able to answer the age old question posited above?  Join us and find out!  And don't forget to RATE, REVIEW & SUBSCRIBE!

KYD 077 - Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery
Last month, if you remember, darlings, Dan issued a challenge to Chrysten: to watch the 90s shagadelic comedy Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery*, a film which she has never seen and yet, somehow, knows all of the references to because every eighth grade boy in the world was running around shrieking "Yeah, baby, yeah!" at some point in their adolescent lives. Cryogenically frozen in the swingin' 1960s, English super-spy, Austin Powers (Mike Myers) is defrosted in the now much less shagadelic 90s to fight his nemesis, Dr. Evil (also Mike Myers).  With the help of absolute smoke show and extremely capable spy, Vanessa Kensington (Elizabeth Hurley...yowza!), Austin must adjust to life as an anachronism, while also falling hard for Vanessa and stopping Dr. Evil's nefarious plot to hold the world hostage for...one BILLION dollars!  Goofs, spoofs and James Bond references abound! But will Chrysten's sophisticated sense of humor be able to resist Austin Powers' charms?  Join us and find out!  And don't forget to RATE, REVIEW & SUBSCRIBE!   *NOT Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, as both of our dum dum hosts originally said in the intro of this episode.  Dum dums.
KYD 076 - Spaceballs
Just when Dan thought it was safe to record another episode... Chrysten attacks with one of her family's favorite 80s comedies, the Mel Brooks sci-fi spoof Spaceballs! When Druish princess, Vespa (Daphne Zuniga), and her faithful droid, Dot Matrix (voiced by the late Joan Rivers, RIP) run away from Vespa's arranged marriage to Prince Valium, they are attacked by Dark Helmet (Rick Moranis) and his crew of idiot Spaceballs. Vespa's father hires Lone Star (Bill Pullman) and his mawg (half-man, half-dog...he's his own best friend!) Barf (John Candy) to save them!  Pursued by Dark Helmet and the Spaceballs, our heroes crash land on a desert planet where they are aided by Yogurt, the everlasting know-it-all (Mel Brooks).  Gags, groans and so many Star Wars references abound! Dan is notoriously unfamiliar with the Mel Brooks oeuvre...will this film be the one that sways him to the dark side forever?  Join us and find out!  And don't forget to RATE, REVIEW & SUBSCRIBE!
