A quick discussion on the Oscars that just happened, and finally, #TwitterlessDrEarl gives his take on this year's SpirituEarl films -- Mary, Joseph, some musical numbers, and whatever crap Burgess tossed up.

First up, a little Word Up, finding out who thinks what about J-Lo & A-Rod... the impact of Disney+ Marvel movies... and predictions on move box offices.

Then, a list of the ladies who we love to see show up in films, some character actresses, some GuGu, some Garfunkel & Oates, and which Mara is better. And Kristy McNicol.

The Deucecast Movie Show crew has returned after a week off, and they are ready to rumble when it comes to movies.  First up, Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl take a look at the recent Oscar nominations and give their thoughts -- surprises, expectations, snubs, and a few predictions.

Then, an episode long round of See This Not That, looking at 15 members of the Zack Snyder's Justice League cast and picking for each a movie to "See This" and then a movie to "Not That", from JK Simmons to Robin Wright to Diane Lane to Jason Mamoa (and even a little Jason MaNO-AH).

Deucecast Classic: Sci Fi with TechnoRetro Dads

It's a busy spring break week for everyone as Mikey is busy eating and #TwitterlessDrEarl is in Long Island testifying at a lint removal procedure gone wrong trial and Dave is out of the state, so rather than trying to get a rushed show together, they guys are taking the week off.

This week, the show pays homage to our good friends over at TechnoRetro Dads, who's own show is ending. This Deucecast Classic is from May 2018, episode 327.  Enjoy the old school vibe, and here are the original show notes from that episode:

It's a couple of guys who keep their heads in the clouds and gaze at the stars, so it's only fitting that Dave and Mikey discuss Fantasy and Science Fiction films. But since #Twitterless Dr Earl can't be found (he's doing a lint removal procedure from the naval of poor kids in Long Island), who better to invite onto the show than the TechnoRetro Dads  themselves, Shazbazzar and Jedi Shuuuuuuuuaaaaahhhhhh....

And the gang jumps right in, counting off their lists of what they consider to be their favorite fantasy/sci-fi films of this century... that's really anything released on January 1st, 2000, until... well, you know, today. Or the day of the recording, anyway.

The TRD's also give their take on "Ready Player One" before diving into the Top Ten, then the guys discuss at length -- and at depth -- the legacy and their adoration of films like "Children of Men" and the newest "Star Trek" and newer "Star Wars" films and Shaz defends "John Carter" while Dave defends "Lady in the Water".

Its a great two hours of sci fi fantasy fun and movie love!

Episode 473: American Classics

In the latest The Deucecast Movie Show, the guys take a look at American classics. It's a broad definition, but Dave, Mikey, and #TwitterlessDrEarl apply their movie mastery to make it happen.

Finally, a top five list of American Classics... movies made in our country, with a solid American cast, movies that define a little America in every scene.

Episode 465: The Not 2020 Top Ten

The review of 2020 films and pop culture continues, as it's time for the first of a couple of Top Ten Lists. In this one, Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl talk about the films that were NOT from 2020, but from all years previous.

It's the Top 10 of NOT 2020, ranking the best films seen that didn't come out in the last 12 months. And to add to the group, The Offspring of the Pride of Stone Mountain South Georgia, Lil G, Garrison Ryfun joins the show to take his rightful place as #DrEarl's Pretentawan Learner.

Several foreign films make the list as the guys get bougee... lots of old films on the list, as the crew pretends to be important... and of course, everyone cuts Footloose.  A little Korean cinema talk... some Lily James news... Armie Hammer did what?... Mikey's Studio Ghibli kick... Lil G's fave zombie movie... Dave's obsession with a dead reporter... #DrEarl's Buckley love...

Episode 464: 2021 Surprise and Delights

The Deucecast Movie Show strives to be an escape and the guys do their best this week to shut out the world for an hour and give you some movie chatter... and this time, it's all about being surprised, delighted, or in some cases, both.

Movies that were thought to be a little silly, or movies approached with apprehension because "Surely, this movie can't be any good?" and yet, IT WAS! 

First up, some January Birthday Movies, giving you the five, ten, twenty more year anniversaries of films you've heard of... and some you haven't. Cause that The Way Back ain't got no Affleck in it.

A little round of January Movie Rotten Tomatoes, with a Christian Slater triple play, and then the top five... the films that Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl watched and were happy to report were actually pretty good.

It's a fun episode, revisiting the good times in front of a screen of some sort... and the kickoff to the annual Year End Best Episodes!
