Married With Clickers
We are Scott & Kat - a happily married couple who love to sit on the couch and chat about the films we've watched. Join us on the Married With Clickers podcast as we cover material from a wide range of eras and genres.
 
Married With Clickers: Episode 54 - Romeo and Juliet

We get all romantic this week, with Kat's pick of Franco Zeffirelli's adaptation of Romeo and Juliet from 1968. Does a rose by any other name truly smell as sweet?  In other words, is the movie any good? We also chat about Horrible Bosses and Captain America: The First Avenger. Yup, we try try to keep it versatile here at MWC.

We would love to hear from you at marriedwithclickers@gmail.com or 206-338-0793.

Married With Clickers: Episode 53 - The Professionals

It's Scott's choice this week, so he took the show back out west with 1966's The Professionals. If you have not heard of this film, you are in for a treat as it features a great script and an amazing cast which includes Lee Marvin, Jack Palance and Woody Strode. We also chat about The Crow, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, the Coen Brothers' True Grit and the Grace Kelly Exhibit at the Bell Light Box here at TIFF HQ.

We'd love to hear from you, so get in touch with us at 206-338-0793 or marriedwithclickers@gmail.com

Married With Clickers: Episode 52 - Hunger

The holidays are just around the corner, so why not join us for a chat about an unbelievably depressing film set in fetid prison cells in Northern Ireland? All kidding aside, with all of the buzz surrounding Michael Fassbender these days, it seemed like the perfect time to check out Hunger from 2008. We share our thoughts on The Polar Express and Bad Santa (no, we didn't watch them as a double bill).

We'd love to hear from you, so drop us a line at marriedwithclickers@gmail.com or 206-338-0793

Married With Clickers: Episode 51 - The Big Clock

This week, we return to the world of film noir (or is it noir light? Film Gris?) with a review of 1948's The Big Clock starring Charles Laughton and Ray Milland. Have the passing been harsh on this film, or can it still entertain?  Who really needs a $600,000 clock? Did Ray Milland really want to go on vacation with his family? Is that the most disgusting moustache in cinema history? We also tackle two recent watches: Source Code (2011) and Class (1983) and discuss a very special screening for our 6 Year Old's birthday party. 

Feedback keeps our clock ticking, so please get in touch with a 206-338-0793 or marriedwithclickers@gmail.com

Married With Clickers: Episode 50 - Battle Royale

We celebrate our 50th show with one helluva fun movie, 2000's Battle Royale. We know, we know - you've all seen it, but it was new to us. Did it live up to the hype? Is the Hunger Games a rip off? Should Scott be concerned about Kat's newfound love for ultra-violent films? We answer these questions and more. We also share our thoughts on Bridesmaids, The X Factor, Pan Am and deal with some much appreciated feedback.

You can contact us ats 206-338-0793 or marriedwithclickers@gmail.com

Married With Clickers: Episode 49 - Southern Comfort

This week, our plans for a relaxing afternoon on the bayou went south with Walter Hill's 1981 film Southern Comfort. We love misnomer film titles here in the Clickers household. We also love good music, crawfish and films with nonstop tension, so we were well served by Uncle Walt. We also take quick looks at The Trouble With Harry, Crazy Stupid Love and Son of Frankenstein.

Next week is our 50th episode and we love to hear from you at 206-338-0793 or send emails to marriedwithclickers@gmail.com.

Married With Clickers: Episode 48 - Water for Elephants

After a month of horror, we did a complete 180 and watched Water for Elephants. It is our first ever review of a 'new' movie. Kat had read and enjoyed the book, so was anxious to see how it had been adapted for the screen. Scott is co-captain of the Toronto chapter of Team Edward. Did we like the movie? Tune in to find out. We also ramble through some recent watches: The Killers (1946), No Strings Attached and Airplane II: the Sequel.

Married With Clickers: Episode 47 - Blood on Satan's Claw

The final installment of our inaugural (and final?) Four Week of Shrieks comes to us courtesy of good friend of the show, Vishnu. Blood on Satan's Claw is unlike anything else we've watched this month, but is that a good thing or a bad thing? This tale involves a group of sinister teenagers, helping Satan rebuild himself by collecting body parts from locals. Wasn't that also the plot from The Twelfth Night

Now that we're at the end of October, we'd love to hear what you thought of our attempts to talk horror and the truncated format of our recent shows, so drop us a line at marriedwithclickers@gmail.com or 206-338-0793

Married With Clickers: Episode 46 - Friday the 13th (1980)

We are nearing the end of October, and that means that Four Weeks of Shrieks is also coming to an end. Kat decided that it was time to go old school slasher and have us visit Camp Crystal Lake with the original Friday the 13th. It had been a very long time since either of us had seen it. So long, in fact, that Kat had pretty much forgotten the identity of the killer. That was cool, as it was as if we were watching it with fresh eyes.

Your feedback is always welcome, so please send of an email to marriedwithclickers@gmail.com or leave us a voicemail at 206-338-0793

Married With Clickers: Episode 45 - Bride of Frankenstein

For this installment of Four Weeks of Shrieks we go waaaaay back to 1935 to check out Bride of Frankenstein directed by James Whale.  The sets are gorgeous, the make-up is glorious and don't get us started on that Dr. Pretorius! Does this universally (get it?) lauded film still have a strong impact nearly 80 years after its release? Tune in to find out.

Feedback keeps us happy, so please drop us a line at marriedwithclickers@gmail.com or 206-338-0793
