Flicks and Swizzle Sticks – Coen Brothers


The Rev joined me, Nikki, to discuss our favorite Coen brothers movies, only to discover that we need to do a whole other show for Coen brothers 2.0! I enjoyed one too many bloody mary’s and not nearly enough olives while tipsily rambling about Raising Arizona, Fargo, O Brother Where Art Thou, and Blood Simple. And, we successfully had our very first giveaway! Keats, you win the movie of your choice from those discussed on this show. Congratulations and thanks, everyone, for your emails and calls. Keep em coming!

The next show will be next month and we’ll be having another giveaway for that one, too! All you have to do is comment on this show what your favorite foreign language film is, and you can win your choice of Kung Fu Hustle, Le Vie en Rose, High Tension or The Good, the Bad and the Weird. Really, you can just comment and say whatever the hell you want. I’m not picky. And you have all month to do it! You can also email me at Nikki@cocktailhour.us with your responses or call 747-2CH-PROD (747-224-7763).

So rustle yourself up a tasty bloody mary and I hope you enjoy the show! Darn tootin’!

    I want to let you all know that the “pancakes house” guy is Swedish not German. I was wrong and Nikki was right.

      Just to reiterate…

      I was right. And Cheri was definitely wrong.

    Hi, I like cheese.

    • Nikki / Feb 3 2013 9:18 am

      :D!!!

    Loved listening to you two. For me it’s still a toss-up between Fargo and O Brother Where Art Thou.

    • Nikki / Feb 3 2013 8:51 am

      I’m glad you enjoyed it! I know exactly what you mean. My favorite tends to change from O Brother to Fargo and back again within a single week! I think it just depends on what mood I’m in

    • Cheri The Rev / Feb 3 2013 9:28 am

      Thanks Earlon! It was fun to do.

    Oh, I misheard and thought you were gonna watch Ma Vie en Rose, not La Vie. You should totally watch both, having got my hopes up! 🙂

    • nikkismalls28 / Feb 4 2013 7:05 am

      Haven’t seen it! I dunno Ma Vie doesn’t have Marion (swoon) Cotillard…

  5. Cheri The Rev / Feb 4 2013 2:40 pm

    That’s what I thought she said, too. She probably did – she was drunk, you know.

    • nikkismalls28 / Feb 6 2013 9:33 am

      Letters are very difficult when there’s vodka involved…

    The Hairdresser’s Husband is one of my all time favorites. Same with The Seventh Seal (Bergman, not Demi Moore).

    • nikki / Feb 9 2013 3:07 pm

      Mayhaps I shall put those on my list, milady! I love movie recommendations!!!!!

  7. Pat Bane / Feb 11 2013 7:49 pm

    Niki do you consider English and Australian film in this group. I loved Priscilla Queen of the Desert.

    • Nikki / Feb 12 2013 10:24 am

      Sure, why not! I’ve seen it, but not from start to finish. I feel like I’ve seen the same parts 5 times. You’ve inspired me. Imma watch it!

  8. Cheri The Rev / Feb 11 2013 8:41 pm

    I’m ashamed to say that I’ve never seen that movie.

    • Nikki / Feb 13 2013 8:58 am

      Well then, you should!

  9. Jessica Roberts / Mar 3 2013 7:37 pm

    Ok so favorite non-english movies that I can think of would be The Orphanage and Amelie. Sooo there ya go!

    • Nikki / Mar 3 2013 7:40 pm

      Excellent taste, sister! Now I am seriously wishing I had chosen those. BLAST! There’s still time, I could totally change my mind, right???

  10. Kimi / Mar 3 2013 10:02 pm

    Non-English movies… So many to choose from. I like The Myth (2005), Chocolate (2008) and The Twins Effect (2003)

    • Nikki / Mar 4 2013 10:48 am

      Nice choices, Kimi!

  11. Alena / Mar 4 2013 1:48 am

    The Danish movie Adam’s Apples.

    • nikki / Mar 4 2013 5:59 am

      Never hear of that one. Gonna have to check it out! Thanks for entering to win!

  12. Alena / Mar 5 2013 4:47 am

    You will love it, it fits your humor.

    My favorite scene is the one with the tree, the birds, the gun and the crazy Arabic guy. The tennis dude is just creepy.

    And every time I hear “How deep is your love”, I think of this film.

    Watch it!

    • nikki / Mar 5 2013 2:57 pm

      Well now that sounds perfect!

  13. Pat Bane / Mar 8 2013 7:37 pm

    Almost any picture with Catherine Deneuve Or Sonia Braga. Last Metro to Paris

  14. Summer / Mar 11 2013 9:47 pm

    Habla con ella! 🙂

    • Rev / Mar 11 2013 9:49 pm

      I need to watch that one again. I remember feeling creeped out by the nurse guy.

    • Nikki / Mar 12 2013 10:31 am

      Never heard of it! But it’s creepy? And foreign? Say no more. Netflix here I come.

      Oh, and HI SUMMER!!!!!
