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 99 - Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence

The holidays are just around the corner, so we decided to cover a film with a very misleading title: Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence. This is an interesting film about a fascinating period of history with some strong performances, but does it all come together to form a masterpiece? We also share our views on Skyfall, In Time, Argo, Something Borrowed and Macao.

The next episode is both our 100th and our 2 year anniversary - we'd love to hear from you, so please write to us at marriedwithclickers@gmail.com or call 206-388-0793.

Married With Clickers: Episode 98 - Savages

This week, we take take on our first Oliver Stone film with Savages from earlier this year. We had both read and had fun with the book, but does the movie measure up? We also take a quick look at Ghosts of Mars, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, The Invisible Man's Revenge, Jeff Who Lives at Home and Conan the Barbarian (2011).

Married With Clickers: Episode 97 - The Anderson Tapes

This week, we take a look at Sidney Lumet's 1971 heist film The Anderson Tapes starring Sean Connery, Martin Balsam and Christopher Walken. We discuss all of the elements that are required for a good heist film. Does this one measure up? Tune in to find out. We also give our quick thoughts on The Muppets, Magic Mike, The Island (1980), The Formula, Rock of Ages and Storm Warning (1951).

Our 100th episode is nearing and we're trying to figure out what to do to celebrate. We'd love to hear from you at 206-338-0793 or marriedwithclickers@gmail.com.

Married With Clickers: Episode 96 - Grease

Kat and I were about to head our separate ways (short, independent trips - not marital disaster), but before doing so we decided to piece together a quick show on an old favourite: Grease. We grew up humming the tunes to this musical, but has it worn out its welcome or does it still manage to charm the hot pants off us? Tune in to find out. It has been a busy time in the Clickers household, so if this ep seems a bit rushed and we seem a bit distracted, you will have to forgive us. There are worse things we could do.

Married With Clickers: Episode 95 - Grand Prix

Gentlemen (and Ladies), start your engines as we accelerate through the corners this week with a look at John Frankenheimer's 1966 Cinerama sensory experience known as Grand Prix. Sure, we've got James Garner, Yves Montand and Toshiro Mifune but, let's admit it, we're here for the cars. Does it capture pole position or is it a literal and figurative car wreck? Tune in to find out. We also chat about Peggy Sue Got Married, My Son My Son What Have Ye Done and Gun Crazy.

Married With Clickers: Episode 94 - Nosferatu Royale

We rushed to squeeze one more episode of Shocks & Bonds into the month. This week, Kat wanted a Daniel Craig Bond starring Bond film, and went with Casino Royale. For the Shock, we class it up with Werner Herzog's Nosferatu the Vampyre, a remake of the silent, Expressionist classic. Did the experiment end on a high note, or are we ready to say goodbye to 007 and assorted ghouls? Tune in to find out.

We'd love to hear what you thought about the month, so call us at 206-338-0793 or email us at marriedwithclickers@gmail

Married With Clickers: Episode 93 - Asphyx With Love

Shocks and Bonds continues this week with a couple of very fun films. On the shock side, we check out The Asphx from 1973, a rather old fashioned British horror film about interfering with nature and saying ass fix a lot. On the Bond front, we go waaay back to 1963 with From Russia With Love, the second film in the franchise which includes a trip on the Orient Express.

Married With Clickers: Episode 92 - GoldenWolf

Shocks and Bonds continues this week with two very different films. We go all the way back to 1941 to review the Universal classic The Wolfman. Does the film still have any appeal in 2012? Tune in to find out. We feature our third Bond in three weeks with Goldeneye from 1995. We all waited a long time to see Pierce Brosnan as 007 but was it worth the wait?

Married With Clickers: Episode 91 - Fog Your Eyes Only

Shocks and Bonds continues this week with a fun double feature. For the 'Shocks' portion, we cover John Carpenter's The Fog. We liked this one so much, we reviewed it twice (the first one was lost to computer gremlins). For the 'Bonds' part of the show, we hang out with Roger Moore with a review of For Your Eyes Only. More than 30 years later, how do these two films hold up? Tune in to find out.

Married With Clickers: Episode 90 - Freddy vs Jason vs Her Majesty

It is Shocks and Bonds month at Married With Clickers. What does that mean? It means we're doing one James Bond movie and one scary movie every episode. This week, Kat picked 1969's On Her Majesty's Secret Service and Freddy vs. Jason from 2003. What did we think? Were they great or did they stink? Tune in to find out.

Married With Clickers: Episode 89 - TIFF Report

We attended some TIFF screenings a few weeks ago and we're finally sitting down to talk about them. This episode includes reviews of The Iceman starring Michael Shannon, Thérèse Desqueyroux starring Audrey Tautou, the Hong Kong car chase flick Motorway and Spanish apocalyptic reunion movie Fin (The End). Kat also fills us in on what it's like to see a 50something Madonna perform. Head colds abound in the Clickers household right now, so coherent analysis is a rare bird. Kat also makes her first picks for next week's initial installment of Shocks & Bonds.

Married With Clickers: Episode 88 - A Shock to the System

This week, we watch Michael Caine follow a rather unconventional path up the corporate ladder in A Shock to the System. This black comedy from 1990 seems all but forgotten, but is it a hidden gem or worth avoiding? Tune in to find out. We also chat about the most shock finale in Bachelor Pad history, Haywire and boobs. Not necessarily in that order.

Married With Clickers: Episode 87 - Melancholia

This week, we take on a monster - Lars Von Trier's Melancholia. Much ink has been spilled over Von Trier's works through the years but, at long last, the world will finally get to hear our two cents. It's the end of the world and does anyone really care? Kirsten Dunst sure doesn't. Tune in to see how this rather polarizing film sat with us. We also dive into the feedback bag.

Married With Clickers: Episode 86 - The Set-Up

This week, we lace up the gloves and step into the ring with Robert Wise's boxing-theme noir from 1949, The Set-Up. In this one, the great Robert Ryan plays an ill-fated, over the hill pugilist. Is the film itself over the hill, or can the team of Wise and Ryan still teach us some new tricks? Tune in to find out. We also share our quick thoughts on Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows, A Dangerous Method, My Week With Marilyn, Murder My Sweet and Eat, Pray, Love.

Married With Clickers: Episode 85 - Some Like it Hot

We get back to the good stuff this week, with a review of Billy Wilder's 1959 comedy Some Like It Hot. Some people may also like this movie, but did we? Well, the answer is 'yes', but please still tune in to find out why. We also chat about season 1 of Boardwalk Empire, The Lady in the Lake and John Woo's Paycheck. That last one felt like a Cruel Summer aftershock.

Married With Clickers: Episode 84 - Kong's Ugly Harley

Cruel Summer ends with a whimper this week. We are obviously suffering from bad movie fatigue as we look to put this whole thing out of its misery. We burn through three quick reviews covering The Ugly Truth, King Kong Lives and Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man. We failed to see the humour in any of these - perhaps the summer heat makes us cranky. We also discuss some other recent watches including Forty Guns, Downton Abbey, Nightbreed: Cabal Cut and Beasts of the Southern Wild. To make matters worse, we're testing out some new recording equipment so sound quality may be all over the place. Overall, this may not have been our finest hour but it was certainly our houriest hour.

Married With Clickers: Episode 83 - Into the Blue 2: The Reef

This week, Cruel Summer hits a new high (or is it a new low?) with the straight to DVD sequel to a film that we'd never seen. Into the Blue 2: The Reef is jam-packed with vaguely familiar faces and reality stars desperate to find their 16th minute of fame. Sure it's terrible, but is it any good? Let's just say that if you like split screens, gratuitious T&A and scuba montages, this may be the film for you.

Married With Clickers: Episode 82 - Torque

Cruel Summer continues this week, with a look at Torque from 2004. We ask a lot of questions, but none more important than what in the hell was this DVD doing in Scott's parents' collection? Tune in to find out whether we thought it was a torqey or speactorqular. Perhaps both? We also chat briefly, in a spoiler-free fashion, about Dark Knight Rises. You may have heard of that one.

We'd love to hear from you, so write us at marriedwithclickers@gmail.com or call 206-338-0793. If you've recently sent in feedback, we'll be getting to it in mid-August as next week's show was pre-recorded.

Married With Clickers: Episode 81 - Little Darlings

Cruel Summer continues this week, as we pack up our hockey bags and jump on the cheese wagon as we head back to summer camp with a review of 1980's Little Darlings. We discuss our camp experiences, Armand Assante's swarthiness and whether Matt Dillon may actually be the prettiest of the bunch.

Our mailbox has been a bit light this summer, so please let us know what you think at marriedwithclickers@gmail.com or via phone at 206-338-0793

Married With Clickers: Episode 80 - The Blue Lagoon

Cruel Summer heats up this week as we get shipwrecked with Brooke Shields and Chris Atkins in The Blue Lagoon. This was a pretty infamous movie during our respective childhoods, so we take a look to see what all the fuss was about. We have some laughs, shed some tears and wonder what kind of glue they used on Brooke Shields' boobs to keep that hair in place.

Married With Clickers: Episode 79 - Blue Crush

Surf's Up, Dudes! This week, we begin our Cruel Summer with the 2002 Hawaiian tax shelter known as Blue Crush. This film raises plenty of questions, most notably: who is the idiot responsible for convincing Kate Bosworth that she needed to lose weight? It's a super short show, as we're away from technology much of the summer and trying to get some content in the can, but hopefully it is sweet.

Married With Clickers: Episode 78 - Shame

Kat continues her Fass bender this week as we review 2011's Shame. We've all heard a lot about Michael Fassbender's weiner, but what about his butt? Tune in to find out. Also, we try to talk about the actual movie; focusing on the challenge of bringing the difficult subject matter to the big screen. Does Steve McQueen succeed? Scott gives a quick review of The Man From Hong Kong and we both gush about The Amazing Spider-Man.

Married With Clickers: Episode 77 - Jaws 2

This week, we celebrate summer with a visit to Amity Island circa 1978 with a review of Jaws 2. Sheriff Brody is looked Tanned, but not at all Rested and he is certainly not Ready to deal with another Great White. It is almost impossible not to compare this one to the original, but we try our best. We also chat briefly about the film noir Dead Reckoning and sort out how we're going to schedule some podcasting into our summer.

Married With Clickers: Episode 75 - The Talk of the Town

We celebrate our 75th show with a visit from an old friend; Mr. Cary Grant. The Talk of the Town is an interesting mix of drama and comedy, featuring three of the biggest stars of the era. How does it hold up today? Should it be remembered with the great films of the 40s or just lumped in with second tier TCM fodder? We also chat about Sherlock: The Final Problem, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrells, The Guard and Tinker, Tailor, Solider, Spy. That's a whole lot of commas.

Sadly, it was a feedback-free episode so we've got plenty of room on the schedule for your thoughts, comments and questions. Get in touch via marriedwithclickers@gmail.com or 206-338-0793.

ArMAYgeddon takes off this week and with a look at The Concorde... Airport '79 from, you guessed it, 1979. It features an all-star cast of C-listers and some wonky special effects. Does it soar at Mach 2 or crash like a lead balloon? We also talk about what elements make for a disaster movie and Scott gives a quick review of Play It Again, Sam.

We did not see eye to eye on this one so tune in to hear us trying to politely insult each other's intelligence. Truth be told, Kat likely won. We have not see any movies lately so we get down to some TV talk - covering Community, The Office and even Smash.

This week we take to the streets of New Orleans with the 1950 film noir (?) thriller Panic In The Streets starring Richard Widmark and Jack Palance. After 62 years, does the movie smell as fresh as a stroll through the Garden District or like Bourbon Street at 6:00 AM? We also chat briefly about Scott's trip to The Final Four,  The Other Woman, The Thing From Another World and The Descendants, and consider doing a month of disaster movies.

Married With Clickers: Episode 60 - Miller's Crossing

A lot of period piece gangster films were released between 1987 and 1993, and one of them was Miller's Crossing, the 3rd outing by the Brothers Coen. Was it one of the best? Quick answer: Yes. It did not make much of an impact at the time, but still packs a punch today. Tune in to find out why. We also chat briefly about Layer Cake, X-Men: First Class and why Moms should not let their 4-year old daughters watch Planet of the Apes. Tune in to hear Kat try to blame Scott, even though he was 4 miles away at the time.

This week, we finish our stint partnering up with Harry Callahan with a trio of sequels: The Enforcer, Sudden Impact and The Dead Pool. Does the law of diminishing returns hold true for this series, or does Clint Eastwood have a surprise or two up his sleeve? The TV season has returned with a vengeance, so we also take quick looks at The Firm (we've got a personal connection to the show) and The Bachelor Season 47. We've also dipped our toes into the cool, creepy waters of Twin Peaks, which may ultimately lead to a standalone episode for us.

Feedback is mother's milk to us, so drop us a line at 206-338-0793 or marriedwithclickers@gmail.com.

Married With Clickers: Episode 56 - Dirty Harrython Pt. 1

So, we were going to cover Magnum Force this week but, one thing led to another, and we decided that a two-parter covering all 5 Dirty Harry films was in order. For this episode, we take a look at Dirty Harry and its follow-up Magnum Force. Do these two classics still bring the thrills? Tune in to find out. We aim for a balanced cinematic diet, so we also discuss One Day, Win Win, Beginners and Extract. The holdiays are a great time for giving the old DVD player a real workout.

We're starting to feel like your mother (i.e. you never call) so drop us a line at marriedwithclickers@gmail.com or 206-338-0793.

Married With Clickers: Episode 55 - Our Top 10 Discoveries of the Year

As we may have mentioned from time to time (or all the time), we have two young children and that limits the number of times we can see new releases on the big screen. Stealing an idea from our good friend Rupert of the Rupert Pupkin Speaks blog, we decided to create lists of the top 10 films we saw for the first time in 2011. We hit nearly ever genres and our lists include films from as far back as 1935 and as recent as 2008. We do end up discussing some of our favourites from 2011 and respond to some terrific feedback.

We'd love to hear from you, so drop us a line at 206-338-0793 or marriedwithclickers@gmail.com and make sure to stop by rupertpupkinspeaks.blogspot.com/
