  1. What a treat to be able to hear BillChete again. Wish I could have made it. Can’t wait to listen. Man, I thought that Oscar tribute to horror was pretty weak in that it seems like they’ve only seen about 20 horror movies, or that there are only about 20 worth honoring. Pretty lame. At least they got some of the best in there, though. But, just as with the Bond tribute this year, the editors make such strange choices.

  2. I guarantee you that the criteria was whether the movie was 1 of 10 “respectable” horror films OR if the movie had a big star in an early role. Leprechaun only made it in because the editor already had it digitzed to grab the Jennifer Aniston footage and they needed a couple of extra shots. I do a lot of editing, Jay. I know what a lazy montage looks like. Haha.

    BTW, I listened and BillChete did not disappoint. Love to hear him do battle. I’m going to check out The Divide on your recommendation, Jay. Sounds right up my alley. Yes, Andy, I love movies like The Road and The Grey. Post-apocalyptic is one of my absolute favorite genres.

  3. Yay! Billchete!!!! I disagree with him on lots of things, but I alway like to hear him talk about movies and really respect all his work! When is he going to start podcasting again?!?!?!?
