So I Married A Movie Geek - Episode 79 - J. Edgar/Contagion/Fright Night

November 28th, 2011 · Comments

As you sit and rub your swollen post-Thanksgiving bellies, we here at So I Married a Movie Geek would like to remind you that though the holiday is over, there is still so much to be thankful for... Vegas trips and GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS!, the fact that you don't live right next to a vampire (even if he does look like Colin Farrell), the inalienable right to touch your face 40,000 times a day (and a governmental investigative agency who's willing to go to all the trouble of cataloging every time you poke your punim), and Leonardo DiCaprio in both a fat suit and a dress. At the same time. I'M NOT MAKING THIS UP, PEOPLE. Or perhaps you're not thankful for all of these things; perhaps you're at a low point in your life. Perhaps you're just waiting for Robert Redford to walk into your life and offer you $5M (adjusted for inflation) for the pleasure of sleeping with your significant other. Cause after all, that'd be so money, baby... Or not. Perhaps you're just waiting to finish reading this so you can get on with the business of listening to this week's J. Edgar / Contagion / Fright Night podcast, with special side reviews of Swingers and Indecent Proposal. Yep. That sounds more like it. Please enjoy our Thanksgiving hodgepodge podcast - it'll fill your heart in much the same way that your octogenarian Grandma's fruitcake fills your stomach. Rated PG-13(ish)!

So I Married A Movie Geek - Episode 78 - Beverly Hills Cop/Throw Momma from the Train

November 15th, 2011 · Comments

Ever ridden on a train? Ever thought of throwing your mother off of one...? If you said 'no,' great - we can still be friends! But if you said 'yes,' we might have to get all Beverly Hills Cop on yo' punk ass! And it won't be pretty… I'm talking about bananas up the tailpipe, people. (Literally!) But whether you're of the murdering or bystanding persuasion, you should really listen on -- as we critically navigate the murky water surrounding this year's Oscar host hopefuls' past. Was Eddie Murphy funny, once upon a pre-Klumps time? Does Billy Crystal sit at home nowadays dreaming up ways to ressurect his career push the Oscar host down the stairs Showgirls style? All discussed in this week's podcast! That, and fecal transplants (they exist!), peeing in sweats (a urinal how-to), and adventures in profanity (Krissy gets mad)! This podcast should probably be rated 'R.' ;-}

So I Married A Movie Geek - Episode 77 - Crazy, Stupid, Love/Center Stage

November 8th, 2011 · Comments

It's a special birthday edition of So I Married a Movie Geek this week, kids!  Krissy was in the hot seat this time, and turned the podcast on its head by choosing two movies she had seen, but Justin hadn't -- this year's Crazy, Supid Love and a 2000 high school favorite, Center Stage! Indeed, it was the perfect storm of Krissy's favorite things: dancing, love triangles, comedic family dysfunction, and Ryan Gosling with his shirt off. Fun was had by all... But especially the birthday girl. Join us as we discuss the virtues of The Gos (yes, again), how to avoid/evade windowless white vans, Ethan Stiefel as Anthony Michael Hall in dance-tastic disguise, Justin's Charlie Brown shirt (and why we should probably burn it), and why Sascha Radetsky is hyper-mono-focused on TAKING WHAT YOU FEEL AND DANCING IT. This ever-so-fun episode is rated PG-13. Now let's get outta here.

So I Married A Movie Geek - Episode 76 - It/Pet Sematary

November 1st, 2011 · Comments

Stephen King Halloween double feature, kids! Yup. Krissy had somehow avoided these 2 flicks for waaaaaaay too long: It (1990) and Pet Sematary (1989). She even thought one of them was a comedy until this weekend. So, like we do, we watched both of them and "discussed" them over wine and the saddest, saddest Skittles. Oh yeah. The good stuff. You know how it is. Listen as we jump from random subject to random subject. Chatter babble like: IT kids vs. IT adults, Pennywise The Clown, clowns in general, "Remember Our Pact" phone calls, cockroach puke tubs and rats, Jonathan Brandis' golden tresses, Ladybugs!!!, the ending of IT, anti-coma bike rides, Dr. Mistakes, Maximum Overdrive Drive, creepy but quite talkative kid zombies, not-Mr. Wizard, Edward Furlong, zombie dogs, zombie Justin, etc. We even list our worst (and most embarrassing) Halloween costumes of the past. Rated PG-15 for mature-ish audiences!
