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!
KYD 075 - Caddyshack
Watching movies in a medically induced coma, while fun, does not always allow you to appreciate a film and all of its subtle and deep nuances...such was the case for Dan and the 1980s comedy classic Caddyshack.  So we decided to go back and give this one a go and see if it's worth the hype! Starring comedy powerhouses Chevy Chase, Bill Murray and Rodney Dangerfield and directed by Harold Ramis (RIP), Caddyshack is the story of a young caddy named Danny (Michael O'Keefe) who scores a scholarship to college through a teen golf tournament at the club where he works.  But when the club owner (Ted Knight) catches Danny fooling around with his niece (Cindy Morgan), his scholarship is in jeopardy.  Now Danny must play a super high stakes golf game against the club owner and his rich a**hole friends in order to secure a cash prize or say goodbye to his college career!  Also Bill Murray is there and he is chasing gophers...?  I dunno I'm not into sports... By now, you know our hosts are not huge fans of over-the-top comedies...but will Caddyshack score a hole-in-one?  (That's good, right?  AGAIN, I'm not into sports!)  Join us and find out!  Also, don't forget to RATE, REVIEW & SUBSCRIBE!    *NOTE: The audio on this ep is pretty spotty.  Still listenable, but not as pristine as it could be.  Sorry, darlings!
KYD 074 - Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
Time to hang up that whip and fedora, kids...because we have FINALLY come to the end of our deep dive into the Indiana Jones quadrilogy!  That's right, darlings! After all the hype, your fearless hosts are finally watching the famous/infamous fourth Indiana Jones flick...Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull! Taking a jump several years into the future, this film is set in the 1950s and the Red Scare is ON!  Indy (now and forever played by Harrison Ford) is back, a little older and a little more worn, but still able to do all of the stunts.  On a quest to find the mysterious Crystal Skull of Akator, as well as save old friend and colleague, Professor Oxley (John Hurt), Indy is joined by wannabe greaser Mutt Williams (played by Shia LaBeouf) .  All the while they are pursued by a ruthless Communist agent (Cate Blanchett) who wants to use the skull to take over the world!  Also, somehow, aliens?  I know, I know...but maybe it will be ok?  I mean...Karen Allen is back, so at least we've got that, right?  So will our hosts let Dr. Jones live or die?  Join us and find out!  And don't forget to RATE, REVIEW & SUBSCRIBE!
