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).

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.

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.

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.

Married With Clickers: Episode 44 - Children of the Corn

Kat and Scott are back together and ready to continue the Four Weeks of Shrieks with a review of Children of the Corn from 1984. It is based on a Stephen King short story and stars Sarah Connor and that guy from Thirtysomething. Kat picked it to see if Malachi and Isaac still have the ability to scare us all these years later? Are these kids really subsisting on corn? Who told Linda Hamilton that those shorts fit? We explore these and other issues, so tune in!

Married With Clickers: Episode 43 - The Crazies (2010)

Four Weeks of Shrieks continues with a sojourn into the modern era with a review of The Crazies. In an attempt to make amends for some earlier choices that were less than horrific, Scott picked this remake of George Romero's early 70s film about a small town dealing with a rather nasty virus and an even nastier government. Was it crazy enough to work? Is Timothy Olyphant actually in law enforcement? Due to some travel and overall 'out of towness', we'll be taking a break for a handful of days, but we will be back with a vengeance early next week.

Married With Clickers: Episode 42 - The Changeling

For this episode, we sat down to watch this creepy little film about bouncing balls and broken windows. After all these years, does it still get under Scott's skin? It was Kat's first time seeing it - did she find it haunting or hokey? Tune in to find out. It's our shortest show ever, so if you ever wanted to take us for a test drive, this is the time!

Married With Clickers: Episode 41 - Frenzy

Scott was under the impression that Frenzy was a true horror movie that it would fit nicely into the Four Weeks of Shrieks. Horror? Not so much, but still pretty thrilling and stylish. Fear not, Kat will get us back on track next time but for now tune in for a look at Hitchcock's penultimate film. Gentlemen are expected to wear jacket and tie.

We'd love a feedback frenzy, so get in touch with us at 206-338-0793 or marriedwithclickers@gmail.com

Married With Clickers: Episode 40 - The Haunting

We continue October's 4 Weeks of Shrieks with 1963's The Haunting, a notable entry in the Old Dark House genre directed by the versatile Robert Wise. Did we find it haunting or were we left wanting? There's only one way to find out - have a listen. We were also able to tackle some feedback in this episode.

Married With Clickers: Episode 39 - Wolfen

Four Weeks of Shrieks continues with 1981's often forgotten supernatural wolf-themed film, Wolfen. There's a lot going on here, Albert Finney has great hair and NYC looks wonderfully filthy. All of that being said, does it all add up? We'd love to hear from you, so send us an email to marriedwithclickers@gmail.com or call us at 206-338-0793.

Our 1st Annual Four Weeks of Shrieks kicks off with a look at Dario Agento's 1977 classic Suspiria. Kat let out a Hall of Fame shriek during our screening and provides an instant replay during our recording session.

Married With Clickers: Episode 37 - The Lady From Shanghai

This week, we reenter the world of film noir with a review of Orson Welles' 1947 The Lady From Shanghai. It is a film filled with crazy characters and and an even crazier murder plot. Did it leave us befuddled or bedazzled? Tune in to find out. We also dip our toes into the new television season with our thoughts on Pan Am, Ringer, The Playboy Club and even X-Factor.

Married With Clickers: Episode 36 - TIFF Report

We step outside our regular format this week, to review the films we saw at this year's Toronto International Film Festival. We begin our chat with the French film Twiggy, a intimate portrait of a pregnant 19 year old. We follow that up with a bold and visually stunning adaptation of Wuthering Heights. We cap it all off with some Killer Joe, a black comedy from William Friedkin that pulls no punches. Actually, quite a few people get punched, and punched hard. We'd love to hear your thoughts, so email us at marriedwithclickers@gmail.com or leave us a voicemail at 206-338-0793

Married With Clickers: Episode 35 - Masters of the Universe

This week, we take another trip in the Clickers Time Machine (why is the dial always set to the 80s?) to take in Masters of the Universe. Neither of us had ever managed to see it before, so we werent enitrely sure what to expect. Did it meet our fairly low expectations? Tune in to find out. We also discuss Samuel Fuller's Naked Kiss and The Goods: Live Hard Sell Hard.

Married With Clickers: Episode 34 - To Live and Die in L.A.

This week, Kat and I take a break from September craziness to discuss William Friedkin's 1985 neo-noir To Live and Die in L.A. It is a tale of tight pants and two dollar bills. It has a fantastic cast and an even better car chase, but is that enough for the two of us? We also take a quick look at Cedar Rapids, Scorpio (1973), The Island of Dr. Moreau (1977), Dark City (1950) and John Carpenter's The Thing.  Share your thoughts with us by sending feedback to marriedwithclickers@gmail.com or 206-388-0793.

Married With Clickers: Episode 33 - Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

Kat had been wanting to see a Marilyn Monroe film, so this week we watched Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953), courtesy of Netflix Canada. Does Howard Hawks' legendary musical comedy still deliver nearly 60 years later? Did we even know it was a musical? Before you tune in, you need to ask yourself one question. Am I Team Monroe or Team Russell? Scott also discusses his recent viewing of The Made Me a Criminal (1939) and we provide a much anticipated Bachelor Pad 2 update. Yes, we are shameless.

Married With Clickers: Episode 32 - Swimfan

The days are getting shorter, the nights are cooler and the temperature of the lake is downright heart-stopping. It has become apparent that summer is nearly over. This week, we're recorded a mid-vacation show from the shores of Ahmic Lake and feature a review of Scott's final Cruel Summer selection, 2002's Swimfan. Did it take our breath away or did we need to hold our noses before taking the plunge? We also discuss the first handful of episodes of Season 1 of The Tudors and provide a highly anticipated Bachelor Pad 2 update. Feedback is always welcome, so please write us at marriedwithclickers@gmail.com or leave us a voicemail 206-338-0793

Married With Clickers: Episode 31- Death Wish

This week, we hopped into the Clickers family car (it's a souped up DeLorean) and headed back to 1974. We've returned with a review of Death Wish starring Charles Bronson. Kat had never seen it and it had been years, if not decades, for Scott. Does it live up to its reputation? Does Bronson still have the touch? Was that Corky St. Clair? To keep our street cred low, we also watched Bride Wars (2009), proving that Netflix giveth and Netflix taketh away. Feedback is always welcome, so please write us at marriedwithclickers@gmail.com or leave us a voicemail 206-338-0793

Married With Clickers: Episode 30 - La Belle et la Bête

We class things up this week with a review of a highly regarded classic; Jean Cocteau’s La Belle et La Bête from 1946. Does its beauty hold up after 65 years, or is it downright beastly? On a less classy note, we also discuss the premiere of Bachelor Pad II, as we cannot deny the siren song of this guilty pleasure. We also saw a movie in one of those places with plush seats and popcorn. We both loved Super 8, but you’ll need to listen to find out why. Actually, we’ll tell you now: it’s just really, really neat. A feedback free week kept the show short but had us in tears, so please write us at marriedwithclickers@gmail.com or leave us a voicemail 206-338-0793

Married With Clickers: Episode 29 - The Outsiders

This week, we sit down to discuss a film that is very familiar to just about every child of the 80s, The Outsiders. In fact, we took in the version released in 2005 as The Outsiders - The Complete Novel. Scott had a few bachelor nights in the city, so he bores Kat with his thoughts on  X-Men: First Class, Cave of Forgotten Dreams and The Tree of Life. With sadness, we also note the passing of Elwy Yost, a name familiar to anyone in Ontario and a man responsible for entertaining and educating generations of film fans.

Married With Clickers: Episode 28 - Married With Books Pt. 1

Summer is here, and we’ve hardly had a moment to sit down together to watch a movie. We both love to read, though, and thought it would be fun to sit down and discuss some of the books we’ve read over the past few months. This may even become a semi-regular feature here at MWC. We discuss Fletch Won, Loving Frank, The Films of John Huston, A Study in Scarlet, The Hunger Games, The Help A Pale View of the Hills, Room and Lucky Wander Boy. We also respond to some terrific feedback. If you want to discuss any of the books we’ve covered or want to recommend something that you’ve recently enjoyed, please drop us a line at marriedwithclickers@gmail.com or 206-338-0793.

Married With Clickers: Episode 27 - Impact Point

For this week’s show, we decided to cover the Citizen Kane of Beach Volleyball Thrillers Starring 90210 Alumni: Impact Point.  This film is filled with the 3 Bs: Beaches, Bikinis and Brian Austin Green. Mr. Megan Fox stars as a sexy… wait, we’ve already said too much. Needless to say, David Silver won’t be taking home the gold medal in sportsmanship. Our dishwasher’s notification system even makes a guest appearance. We recorded this one in rush, as Kat took the kids to the cottage while Scott had to slave away in the city (i.e. eat cereal for dinner), in order to have an episode in hand. That’s a runabout way of saying that there’s no feedback this time around. That doesn’t mean we don’t love it, so write us at marriedwithclickers@gmail.com or leave us a voicemail 206-338-0793

Married With Clickers: Episode 26 - 28 Days Later

It’s been nearly a decade since Danny Boyle’s influential horror movie was all the rage (get it?).  Does it still do the trick or are we suffering from zombie/infected burnout? Will Cillian Murphy kill or be killed? This episode was nearly lost due to an Audacity crash, but it was revived, zombie-style, with help from the Samurai of the GGTMC. Many thanks to the Lord of Louisville. There’s not much in the way of recent viewings, but Scott provides some brief thoughts on Revolver (1973) and there’s some general Star Wars talk. We loved this week’s voicemails, so please keep the feedback coming to marriedwithclickers@gmail.com or 206-338-0793.

This week, we turn our attention to a hidden gem from the 60s, The Swimmer. Burt Lancaster puts on his stylish swim trunks and attempts to find his way home, but it is not always smooth sailing (how's that for a mixed metaphor?). We also discuss The King's Speech, Hamlet (2000) and the fine documentary Marwencol. We loved the feedback this week, as it inspired even more conversation resulting in a marathon episode (for us, at least).  Email us at marriedwithclickers@gmail.com or leave us a voicemail at 206-338-0793

We got a ton of movies in this week, including a trip out with the kids to see The Muppet Movie on the big screen.

This week, we experience the thrill of Victory (or is it the agony of defeat?). John Huston assembled an all-star cast including Sly Stallone, Michael Caine and Max Von Sydow for this WW2 soccer epic, but does the film deserve a yellow card? We also discuss the recent family movie Rio and have a chat about some recent TV season finales. Our Question of the Week is: What is a strong acting performance by an athlete?

What was real and what was imagined? Just how many crunches did he do per day? We also revisited that 80s gem Predator.

Did it live up to its legend, or was it dead on arrival? We also give you the lowdown on Get Low. This is our most supersized episode yet, as we respond to some terrific feedback, including some trivia on Santa Carla/Cruz and a creepy story about a serial killer. Our Question of the Week is: What is your favourite film noir?

Married With Clickers: Episode 14 - The Lost Boys

It had to happen. The two of us cannot sit down for too long without someone referencing The Lost Boys, so it was high time we discussed this 1987 love letter to mullets and fangs.  Does it still hold up? Was Dianne Wiest born a Mom? Why can't we get that song out of our heads? We ponder the future of Survivor after the shot of adrenaline provided by Redemption Island. Scott also takes a couple of minutes to discuss his aborted attempt at watching 2008's The Spirit.  This week, we want you to recommend an underappreciated Joel Schumacher movie. Feedback helps to ward off vampires, so email us at marriedwithclickers@gmail.com or leave us a voicemail at 206-338-0793.

Married With Clickers: Episode 13 - Eight Men Out

Baseball season is upon us, and we’ve all got baseball on the brain in the Clickers household after taking in the ballgame Saturday. We stay class this episode, by reviewing that other Charlie Sheen baseball movie: Eight Men Out. Everyone looks sharp in their 1919 fashions, but their play on the field is somewhat sloppy. Is something strange afoot? Will Shoeless Joe ever play again? Is that Mr. Noodle? We haven’t watched much this week, so we look ahead to the film selections on an upcoming flight to Mexico. Yes, it’s as exciting as it sounds. Feedback is the elixir of life, so email us at marriedwithclickers@gmail.com or leave us a voicemail at 206-338-0793.

Married With Clickers: Episode 11 - X, the Man With the X-Ray Eyes

This week, we look deep into the eyes of Roger Corman's 1963 film, X, the Man With the X-Ray Eyes. but do we like what we see? This film stars Ray Milland as a scientist who wants to see what God sees, but doesn't quite understand why God doesn't have to wear bulky sunglasses. It's a pretty ambitious film, but what happens when ambition outpaces budget? Tune in to find out. Also, we got through a ton of movies this week: The Driver, Dune, The Hurt Locker, Across 110th Street, Heroin Busters, The Last King of Scotland and Blue Thunder. Can you find the common thread? We top it all off with some terrific feedback and pose the question: What 50s or 60s B-Movie should be remade today? Feedbackers are Smurfy, so email us at marriedwithclickers@gmail.com or leave us a voicemail at 206-338-0793.

Married With Clickers: Episode 10 - The Watcher in the Woods

Did the legendary production problems hurt the final product? Just how old is Bette Davis? Tune in to find out if this one still gives us the creeps or if you really cannot go home again. This week's Question of the Week is "What is a good 'First' horror movie for kids?" We also finally got around to watching The Social Network and Scott caught a screening of Machete Maidens Unleashed.

Married With Clickers: Episode 8 - Rebecca

This week, we tackle Alfred Hitchcock’s Rebecca – the 1940 Best Picture winner. Kat is a big fan of Daphne Du Maurier’s original novel. Scott is a big fan of Kat. So, will we agree on this film? Will Laurence Olivier and Joan Fontaine sweep us off our feet or push us off a cliff? This film has some great performances, an intense atmosphere and the least friendly housekeeper in film history. We also share our thoughts on Morning Glory, The Long Goodbye and a Film Noir lecture series at the Revue Theatre here in Toronto.

Married With Clickers: Episode 7: Escape From the Planet of the Apes

It's Valentine's Day folks, and nothing says romance quite like a screening of Escape From the Planet of the Apes. In all honesty, Zira and Cornelius do seem to be quite dedicated to each other. This film gives a lot to the viewer: everything from a discussion on infinite regression to a chimpanzee in a bubble bath. It's not every day that Victor Newman and Khan Noonien Singh (a.k.a.  "KHAAANNNN!!!") appear in the same film.What did we make of all of of this monkeying around in early 70s Los Angeles? Does the nostalgia hold up for Scott? Will Kat Geek Out or Freak Out? Tune in to find out.

You'll also hear our quick thought on The American, Adam and Sukiyaki Western Django.
