It's a very special (and may we say bodacious) birthday edition of 'So I Married A Movie Geek' as we go late 80's for an old school double feature: BEETLEJUICE and BILL AND TED'S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE!!! Both were seminal childhood flicks for Justin and both, of course, were completely bypassed by Krissy for over 20 years. But no more! We discuss our recent trip to the Northwest, Krissy's love of trees, Tim Burton, Saturday morning cartoons, Michael Keaton, Captain Kangaroo: The Ride, time travel, our fave B and T historical characters, the potential awfulness of late-in-the-game sequels & much more! It's all PG-13, y'all and totally EXCELLENT!

Tom Hanks double feature, y'all. Seriously. TRUTH: We love Tom Hanks. And if you don't love him too, we don't know what to say to you. You might just be a communist. This week, Krissy had full choice and we watched 2 Hanks flicks, BIG (1988) and JOE VERSUS THE VOLCANO (1990). One is Justin's all-time favorite Hanks film. The other features Meg Ryan in three roles, Abe Vigoda and a volcano. So there you go. Spoilers and nostalgia-diarrhea filled, like always! This tangent-filled episode is rated PG-13!!!
How super was J.J. Abrams's Super 8 really? And what specific scenes did Krissy have beef with after finally seeing Close Encounters of the Third Kind for the very first time?!? Those questions and more are all answered (more or less) in this super duper alien-tastic double feature episode of SIMAMG! Soooooo MINT, am I right? Feeling the Spielberg love, this week we make nostalgia cotton candy and discuss movie mashups, Abrams's extreme obsession with lens flares, THE MOST SPECTACULAR TRAIN CRASH OF ALL TIME, precocious child actors, Elle Fanning's awesomosity, the fun of playing with your mashed potatoes, Richard Dreyfuss, ditching your family, the NBC jingle & much more! This episode is rated PG-13 in every universe!
ALL X-MEN EPISODE! Is X-Men First Class the best of the bunch? We force Krissy to watch her very first X-Men double feature: X-Men (2000) and the brand new one out in the theaters too! X-cellent, right? Which one did she enjoy more? How much in love are we both now with Michael Fassbender? FASSBENDER!!!! How many degrees are we currently from Kevin Bacon? What would be Krissy's big superpower? It's all in this episode that's rated PG-13!
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade vs. The Fifth Element! Two adventurous flicks personally programmed by Justin's sister Kristin and both previously unseen by Krissy (of course)! Harrison Ford and Sean Connery vs. Bruce Willis and Milla Jovovovovovich!! Which flick kept Krissy awake ---better? As a relative newbie to the series, out of the Indiana Jones trilogy (and not the woeful 4th), which is her official favorite? Up to this point, what did Krissy think the Holy Grail actually was? (Hint: you'll never guess it.) Are the Joneses, um, immortal now? What exactly was Chris Tucker on during TFE? When will Luke Perry get his break? How open to love is Bruce Willis? Bandage outfits? Obvs, the hard journalistic questions that erupt when watching this double feature!! This episode is rated PG-13 for one prominent curse word! Earmuffs, kids!
