Woody Allen double feature! Yes, we both get a little neurotic and wacky talking about the newest Woody flick (Midnight in Paris) and one of his classics (Manhattan). One of us has seen most of Woody's output of films while the other has seen only a handful! Like always, we answer the important questions on everyone's minds: Did either movie make us want to move to Paris or NYC? Is it cool for someone to have a favorite cinematographer? What is the true Golden Age and is nostalgia really that bad? How can Owen Wilson be in a crappy movie like Hall Pass and a great one like Midnight in Paris in the same year? Is it the same guy? What's up with that? This episode is rated PG, which is really great when you compare it to some of our recent output! You could practically listen to this with your grandparents, by gosh!

WARNING: We officially have gone off the deep end for this 66th episode of SIMAMG!! And not like the deep end of the pool at a nice hotel in Vegas or something. NO. Like the deep end of a YMCA pool where it's 12 feet deep and your ears start to pop as you try to pick pennies up off the bottom. Yes, we do watch two of Justin's "FAVORITES" ever: The Shining and The Fly (The Jeff Goldblum Version). And yes, we probably say something that will offend most everyone. A roller-un-PC-coaster, if you will. But we just discuss so many things, you guys! Things like discovering yourself, youthful masturbation and "wee-wees," Full House, occasional veganism, Timberline Lodge's garage, Encyclopedia Brown, Jessica Fletcher, Stefan's inclusion in Family Matters, ghost sex and babies, Jeff Goldblum Is Watching You Poop, convoluted mazes, inside out baboons, "AIDS face," flybaby smishmortions and we even spontaneously bust out some Billy Vera and the Beaters! How unfocused can one episode get, right? All scattered, smothered, covered and rated PG-13 for pure craziness/grossness!
This happens. This is something that happens... What's "this" you ask? The Total Glorious Package: Almost Famous and Magnolia! Kate Hudson at her best, Julianne Moore at her crying worst and (quite accidentally on our part) a brilliant Phillip Seymour Hoffman double feature performance! Squeak 'em, squeak 'em whaaaaat? Yup, Christmas came early this year, kids... In the form of a Golden God and raining frogs. Rated PG-13 with some poopy language on the side. Enjoy!
Dystopian double feature! This week, Krissy takes the flick-choosing reins and picks two movies that she couldn't continue being completely oblivious about: A Clockwork Orange and Blade Runner (The Director's Cut)!!! And she only loved one of them! Duh duh duuuuhhhh. But which one? Other questions answered during the podcast: how noir does Krissy like her noir? Does she also love - NAZIS?? What's Justin's favorite Kubrick film? What would be our personal Ludovico techniques? Is there such a thing as too rapey? Who loves synth-y soundtracks? Is Harrison Ford's narration missed? No love for Dark City? Was Deckard a unicorn-loving replicant? Yup. We wade in the shallow end of the intelligible movie discussion pool. (splash, splash) This episode is rated PG-13!
So what do cowboys, indians, aliens, clowns, laser slap bracelets, phallic gold-mining alien ships, cotton candy testes, electric circus tents, and kids with knives have in common? Absolutely nothing! Except a place in this podcast, of course, which this week takes on the new 'Cowboys and Aliens' movie along with the "kult klassic" (according to Justin) 'Killer Klowns From Outer Space.' J and K's opinions differ on which movie is the better of the two, though both are down for siphoning off some gold through a twisty straw. ...What? That made no sense to you? Well dag nabit! You'll just have to watch both of these here movies, woncha, Colonel Crabbypants? This podcast is rated a strong PG-13, for allusions to body parts and Olivia Wilde in general.
