It's a Christmas miracle!!! What happens when Krissy and Justin (plus very special guests Allison Boon and Evan Goldstein) decide to make a ginormous batch of Mega Xmas Sangria and watch the 1989 holiday classic, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation?? DRUNKEN MADNESS!!!! Seriously. We attempt to stay on-topic. We really really tried. There are even a couple F-bombs fired off amongst all the constant chatter. So you've been warned! This podcast is rated RRRRRRRRRRR!!!!! Happy holidays to everyone!!! Don't forget to listen next week when we discuss our Favorite Films of 2010!!!

NEW MOVIE ALERT! Who suffered for their art most this year in film? Natalie Portman as a sexually repressed, bullimic ballerina? Or Christian Bale as a crack-smoking, ex-boxing convict? Or BOTH? In an effort to make a dent in our ginormous pile of awards screeners, we watch both The Fighter and Black Swan! The discussion that follows includes much ado about Mark Wahlberg, Bale, Amy Adams, Melissa Leo and the 7 sisters! Plus, we expound upon the unraveling of Nina Sayers (figuratively and literally), awkward masturbation scenes, ballerinas making out, METAPHORS!!!!, Vincent Cassel's head, Winona Ryder going crazy and MORE. This episode is rated PG-13!
DIE HARD! DIE HARDER!! DIE HARDEST!!!!!! Yup. J and K take a trip to Nakatomi Plaza (Origami Tower?) and watch and discuss the "heart-stopping" (palpitation-y?) movie starring Bruce Willis, the mom from Parenthood, and Snape from Harry Potter. Nothing's too off-topic for our daring duo, not even discussions about hypothetical terrorism at My Gym, the structural soundness of an actual Origami Tower, and the magic of car phones! This podcast is rated PG-13, once again, for liberal use of the word 'douchebag.'
On this week's 'So I Married a Movie Geek,' J and K hit a bittersweet note: mourning a loss in the family, they cheer up by watching a Steve Martin double feature: Mixed Nuts and Roxanne. Krissy's all about the cast, characters and farcical nature of Mixed Nuts (especially when it comes to hiding dead bodies as Christmas trees), but Justin's really just about loving Madeline Kahn Liev Schreiber's scarf dancing and Roooooxxxaaanne, in general. Also discussed: Steve Martin's love for art and the Y, the pros/cons of poor people getting rhinoplasty, a brief foray into Avatar/Titanic and why The Police should've included 'Roxanne' in Roxanne. Rated PG-13 for Krissy's unnecessary use of the words crap and douchebag (sorry, Mamaw).
