Episode 85 - Psycho/Rear Window

January 25th, 2012 · Comments

Krissy's finally been Hitchcock'd! YES! For our next week in "Directors Month," we watched Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho (1960) and Rear Window (1954), making them the very first Hitchcock movies Krissy has EVER SEEN. Say whaaaaaaat???!?? Thank Jeebus we have this podcast so we could rectify that crazy happenstance. And since we were rollin' late on this episode, we tried to keep it shortish, even using a stopwatch. The timed discussion includes crazy talk 'bout Norman Bates' "nervousity," bad taste AIDS jokes, Janet "Worst Crook of All Time" Leigh, controversial flushing toilets, bad James Stewart impressions, our personal Rear Windows, the flash defense and Supreme Hottie Grace Kelly! It's all PG-ish and totally in TECHNICOLOR!!!!!

Episode 84 - Fargo/No Country For Old Men

January 16th, 2012 · Comments

January = Director's Month here at So I Married a Movie Geek, and what better way to start it off than with two movies by the Coors Brothers -- err, Coen Brothers. (The former brothers tried to make beer and failed. The latter make movies!) So J and K got saddled up for a crazy, greedy/murderous romp through all the states they'd never want to actually be in for prolonged periods of time. Yes -- all the way to Fargo and the land where Mexican mariachi bands awaken you from your bloody stupor with song (aka No Country for Old Men)! Good times, folks. Good times. And by 'good times' we definitely mean 'holy hell, we're glad we're not hapless characters caught in a Coen Bros' character cycle of corruption and avarice.' But hey, if you like cowboys (but not aliens), North Dakota / Minnesota accents (but not ever living there), or brothers who make fine cinema instead of crappy beer, listen on! Rated PG-ish...?

Episode 83 - Favorite Films of 2011

January 3rd, 2012 · Comments

Happy new year, y'all!! Before we proceeded with the awesomeness that is 2012, we took an episode-long look back at our favorite films of 2011! So we each had our own personal lists with some honorable mentions on the side! Which movies would be the ones we'd most likely watch again and again a few years from now? If we had 10 flicks from the past year to take onto a desert island, which ones would we choose? Could we (gasp) have the same #1 movie??? ALSO, Krissy looks at the list of 68 movies (!!!) she finally caught up with due to the podcast and chooses her favorites and least favorites! This episode is rated PG-13!
