Episode 503: Actresses We Miss

The Deucecast Crew, including Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl love movies and the actresses in them, and felt it was high time to pay tribute to those who have since departed this mortal coil... especially since we gave the love to the Actors a few weeks ago (Ep 496), its time to do the same for the fairer gender.

Joining the show is the Spawn of Scotty Ryfun, the pride of Kennesaw, Lil G Garrison, as #TwitterlessDrEarl and Mikey give thoughts on The Last Duel, while Lil G and Dave look at Halloween Kills.

A round of Rotten Tomatoes ensues, featuring the film of one up and coming actor that you may not even know the name of -- but we know you've seen him.

Then, proper nods to the dead and buried, included legendary names like Hepburn and Gilda and Cloris and Ingrid and more.  Finally, a late addition of Birthday Movies for October!

Episode 499: The One Before

Well, here we are, one week out from the biggest episode we've had since the last big episode we had. It's the Deucecast Movie Show and before we get to 500, we have to do 499.  And in the spirit of the One Before, Dave, Mikey, and #TwitterlessDrEarl are celebrating ones before... or more specifically, movies that have a story before the story that you've already seen...

Prequels.

No, not THOSE Prequels... well, not just those Prequels. These are the origin stories, the lead ups, the ones that show us how the big movies got their own stories to tell. How Bumblebee met an unassuming Hailee Steinfeld and how Professor X ended up in the wheelchair and how Silent Bob met Jay and why is Indy 2 set before Indy 1? These are the questions that get answered!

Plus, a new IMDb game, this one all about the Top Four... and paying off the summer, finally, the 2021 edition of DAVESPLOSION! 

Finally, all the news you need to know about the next episode, coming Friday, 8p Eastern, 5p Pacific... The Deucecast Movie Show Episode 500.

Episode 498: Cinematic Inspiration

The human world is definitely a mess, and life at the Deucecast is better than anything they got out dere... so come let us inspire you!


Mikey, d$, and the vaunted and legendary icon #TwitterlessDrEarl are here to bring you the some of the most inspiring films we could find, movies that lift us up, make us happy, pump us with energy and a will to live.  A little bit of vim, and a lot of vigor.

And somewhere along the way, the party is crashed by Friend of the Show Scotty Ryfun, who just randomly pops in to say hello, and ends up sticking around to give his own list!

Also discussed along the way... the career of Chris Makepeace... Mikey working on his fitness... d$ runs fast... love for Olympia Dukakis... behind the scenes on Flight 93... Eddie & Steve... more Malick from #TwitterlessDrEarl... 

Wednesday, September 8, 2021

Episode 497: The Tourney of American Treasures

The big 5-0-0 approaches, but there are still movie discussions to be had before then! On the 497th excursion into podcast mediocrity, Dave, Mikey, and #TwitterlessDrEarl chat a bit, then get to Birthday Movies -- Sully is 5 years old! Wicker Park is 15 years old! And somehow the math is off, and The Shawshank Redemption is... 27 years old?

Then, we find the next movie role to make the Big Bracket... and it's a intertwined battle of two American treasures, one being K Costner and the other being M Keaton.

From Birdman to Johnny Dangerously to Eliot Ness to Roy McAvoy, some of our favorite movies and movie characters do battle, plus a great conversation on the legacy of Keaton's Batman, and Peak Whitney.

Episode 496: Actors We Miss

The Deucecast Crew, including Mikey and Dave, sans #TwitterlessDrEarl (who is spending time earning his minor is podiatry instead of being on this episode) love movies and the actors in them, and felt it was high time to pay tribute to those who have since departed this Mortal Coil... and to give the proper nod to the dead and buried, the Spawn of Scott Ryfun, that being Lil G, the pride of TyTy, joins the show for a look at the ones we miss!

First up, remembering Chadwick Boseman, as we look at one year since he left us.

Then, a rousing round of The Dead Actor Rotten Tomatoes game... which movies are fresh, which are rotten?

Then a look at the faves of the crew, as we discuss actors who have passed in recent (and not so recent) years, and the movies they featured in, from "Skin Deep" to "Moneyball" to "The Philadelphia Story" to which "The Vanishing" is awesome and which one sucks.

Plus, an update on Mikey's 365 Films in a Year pursuit.

Episode 494: The Summer Movie Tournament

The summer is winding down, the Deucecast Movie Show is headed toward 500, and another ReFlicktions is right around the corner... but first, the cherry atop the summer series.

And what better way to cap off the award winning, acclaimed, BET Source Award nominated Summer Movie Series than to pick out some of the biggest roles and make it a full on, official Big Bracket Movie Role Tournament... with the winner joining Castor Troy, Jerry Maguire, Indiana Jones, and more in the Big Bracket coming... later. Much later.

Thirty two roles, matched up one by one, until there is only one. 

And what better way to make this happen than to bring on The Spawn of Ryfun, the one and only Son of the Pride of Bainswick, Georgia, Lil G Ryfun!  

McLovin gets tons of McLove... which Goldblum is better... how much does Mikey love My Big Fat Greek Wedding... can Pee Wee move on... who's the real Patriot... will Connor4Real never stop? or Never stop never stopping?... and the first real life person in the movie role tourney!  

And a vicious battle between a high school Emma and a ghost seer... 

Plus... we have ourselves a tiebreaker... a special guest who comes roaring in like a wrecking ball.

Episode 490: Top Summer Movies 2005-2009

The Summer Series has but a few time periods left as we approach the 2010s... but first, we have to finish out the 2000s -- that being movies released between Memorial Day and Labor Day in each 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009!

And our guest roster continues to shine, as Carnegie Hall icon and Mom of lots Jenn Kaufman joins the show once more. 

First, a new game called DEBUTS debuts, featuring a challenge to discover famous names who made their first appearances in this five year window. 

The, the top five films of that era, including a Donkey Kong doc... My Big Fat Greek Ruins... some Pixar love... a Harry Potter discussion... Julia vs Sandy B... the raunch in films of the time... Studio Ghibli name drops... Isla Fisher, the backup Amy... the fourth Die Hard... and then whether Heath Ledger wins the Oscar in a world in which he lives... and some hot Letterboxd talk...

Episode 489: Top Summer Movies 2000 to 2004



The summer is half over, and the summer series is rounding the corner toward homestretch (that's a baseball metaphor for you folks out there). Mikey and Dave, again sans #TwitterlessDrEarl, take up the mantle of more summer cinema, this time the best from Memorial Day to Labor Day in 2000 to 2004, and the guys bring back Miss Independent himself Jeremy Burgess to the show.

After catching up with The Burgeler (new reality show premiered this Fall on ABC), they play a little 2000s themed Rotten Tomatoes game, with the possible first time mention of "Shark Tale" ever on the podcast (and maybe the first time since the early 2000s anyone has thought of it), then onto the Top Five.

Nic Cage and Costner both make random appearances, with Spielberg films about airports and pre-cognitions also show up. Plus, the lower of the Mission Impossibles, Jamie Foxx and his Collateral, the beginning of the super hero era, Harry Potter shows up, Nicole Kidman's classics, Jay and Silent Bob go after their MoFo movie check, and the Black Pearl.

And Dougray Scott. Or Doogray, as it may be.
