Episode 239: TV into Movies (ft Shazbazzar!)

If you've ever watched a classic television show from the 70s or 80s and thought "Man, this would be a great movie!" then this is The Deucecast Movie Show episode for you!


Mikey, Dave and Pinky first welcome in Terrance Malick Apologist and Film Historian Dr Earl, and welcome back to the Perry King Studios none other than TechnoRetro Dads co-host Shazbazzar!  

First up, the birthday movies, including August 1986, which was a gold mine of classic films all released in a few weeks of each other.

Next... playing a game called Chronology, with categories like "Whats My Nam, Yo!" and "Its Gonna Be Huuuughes", naming the correct order of films release dates.

And finally... a collection of television shows from the 70s and 80s that the hosts and guests would love to see turned into a film... imagine a big screen version of Perfect Strangers... or The Wonder Years... or Six Million Dollar Man... or even a classic 80s game show turned into a thriller.  And Dave does his best to make sure a certain beloved actress gets some work!  Plus, who would be better as KITT... Samuel Jackson or Morgan Freeman?   

Can Christian Slater be a Hogan Hero?  Can Jeffrey Dean Morgan be a Haitian priest?  And who is the Scarecrow and who is Mrs King?  

And Dave talks about the dream cast of a classic anime film... and discussions of fitting a long series into a 2 hour film, and Stephen King's upcoming works.  And bonus, a sampling of some classic theme songs!

Dave and Mikey are doing the show with four fingers again... Pinky-less.  Dr. Earl does come in, though and the guys are proud to bring in Paige Davis... known for TLC's Trading Spaces, the touring ensemble of Chicago and Beauty & the Beast... and becoming known as The Deucecast Movie Show Friend of the Show!

Working through some throat issues (Mikey) and a cough (Dave), the show must go on!

Paige tells the audience about one of her favorite charities, Operation Backpack (you can find the link up shortly on The Deucecast Movie Show webpage sidebar), which gets school supplies to over 20,000 NYC children who need the help.

And Mikey questions whether Paige knows the actual boroughs of New York, despite the fact she has lived there for forever.

The group plays a little game of Musical IMDb, so play along at home to see if you can name the musicals by the cast list!

The topic tonight is 1990s Romantic Comedies... Dave loves You've Got Mail... Paige loves Dave (no kidding!)... Earl loves As Good as It Gets... Mikey loves Tin Cup... and enjoy Paige Davis walking a tightrope of politics (which Mikey squirmed but Earl and Dave giggled)... get a shout out to Paige's husband Patrick Page (yes, that makes Paige Page... hence the Davis)... and a few people employ the Jennifer Kaufman Rule by insert films that don't actually fit the topic... a Broadway show timeline for Paige Davis... there is yearning for Tom & Meg reunion... why Paige hated Sleepless in Seattle... and the locale of You've Got Mail

Episode 236: The Best Movie Year Ever Tournament Opening Round

In the many years of The Deucecast Movie Show, there have been hundreds, maybe thousands of movies that have been reviewed, from early in the 1900s until very recently.

However, the guys of the show have wondered what is truly the best year of film ever... not the best movies of the year -- but the BEST YEAR of MOVIES EVER.

The years have been given numbers, and randomly numbers are called to fill out a bracket with 40 different years in it.

First up...
2004 (Hitch, The Incredibles, National Treasure & Mean Girls and, negatively, Catwoman)
vs
1986 (Platoon, Aliens, Ferris Bueller's Day Off & Stand By Me)

Then a battle with
1981 (Raiders of the Lost Ark, Superman II, Stripes & Evil Dead)
vs
1998 (Saving Private Ryan, The Big Lebowski, You've Got Mail &  A Bug's Life)

And the big battle between Saving Private Ryan and Raiders of the Lost Ark

And then you have:
1992 (Aladdin, Unforgiven, A Few Good Men & Reservoir Dogs)
vs
2008 (Iron Man, Wall*E, The Dark Knight & Tropic Thunder)

What do you pick?

Episode 235: Summer Lovin'

It's hot outside, like walking through hot soup, but the podcast is cool enough to replace your AC.  Not sure what that means, but this episode is awesome, so whatever.

Mikey, Pinky & Dave bring in Terrence Malick Apologist and Film Historian Dr Earl, and on the Subway Fresh Take Hotline, it's The Delightful Life host and friend of the show Jennifer Kaufman, the girl with the voice so nice that she only comes on so the guys can hear her talk about anything.

First up, a round of IMDb, reading the list of films and naming the actors... including the not-famous-then but famous-now actor who played "Orderly".

Then, its the favorite Summer Films... films that are set in and around summer -- road trips and summer camps and sport camps and vacations and even possibly movies set the night of high school graduation (which technically is summer, even though it just started)

The political incorrectness of "Heavyweights"... Michael Ian Black & Bradley Cooper getting married... the Nancy McKeon summer film that Dave misses... the love of Lucy Deakins... who in the studio are the Rotten Tomato critics and who is the audience... a classic Nia Vardalos vacation film... Jennifer Kaufman's love of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding"... and Dude Kaufman's love of the same... the difference in "American History X" and "American Graffiti" and which one is a better date movie... the brilliance of Jason Segel and the rapidity of Jesse Eisenberg... lamenting Lindsey Lohan... female reboots of all male classics... A Where Are They Now? with the cast of "Summer School"...

And if a film that takes place over the course of the fall, winter and spring, can you call it a "Summer Film"?  Jennifer Kaufman defends, while Dave gives her the facts.

And the love of "My Life in Ruins" and the audience who does love it.

Episode 233: If I Can Change & You Can Change...

It's a tradition like apple pie, hot dogs, baseball and Will Smith movies... The Deucecast Movie Show once again giving you an Americana themed episode, celebrating the best of patriotic, all American, we love this land kind of films.

Joining Pinky, Mikey & Dave in studio is the Terrence Malick apologist, film historian and Brie Larson crush-holder, the estimable Dr. Earl.

First, birthday movies will tell you how old "Legally Blonde" and "Kazaam" and "Point Break" all are, as they all came out in July of various previous years.

Then, reaching back to a game not played since The Deucecast Episode LXII, for the Independence Day week, a game called "American or Commie".  Who was born in America?  And who is foreign born, naturally making them a communist (for the purposes of this game, of course...).  And you'll find out where Tom Skerritt, Emilio Estevez and yes, Amy Adams hails from.
.
And then, a run down of movies that are considered slices of Americana or downright patriotic... movies like "In America" and "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" and "Red Dawn" and even the film that actually ended the Cold War.

Theories on how the Air Force One commies would be treated today... Mikey's new love of "Wahlburgers"... the puzzlement of what "The Danger Zone" actually means... the filmography of Heath Ledger... writing a paper on the Civil War, using only a movie for reference... why Rocky Balboa is more American than you...

Finally, in the returning Pretty in Pink, Pinky gives his rundown of the movie "Clueless" and gets another great 90s classic to watch for next go'round.

Episode 231: Cult Classic Films - The Live Show

Coming to you live and recorded from a small side room (and not the promised main stage, but who's counting...) at the annual Magic City Con in Birmingham, Alabama, it's The Deucecast Movie Show!
Dave, Mikey and Pinky hold court to first do a quick audience participation version of The Rotten Tomatoes Game, then the main segment kicks off.

It's "Cult Classic Films", however you may define it.  Movies that the guys feel that have quite a following, movies that aren't forgotten, movies that really define a slice of a generation.

Episode 230: The Unnecessary Sequels

Finally, because "Now You See Me 2" isn't called "Now You Don't", it qualifies as an "Unnecessary Sequel".  Listen in as Dave, Mikey, Ryfun & Hurricane Rhett give their best examples of great movies that had movies after it that just didn't need to be made...

Movies such as a Halloween sequel... a Crocodile Dundee sequel... a Highlander sequel... A Grumpy Old Men sequel... a Mannequin sequel... and some classic films that have... prequels. Yup. It happens here. 

And topics like... tainting the legacy of "Close Encounter of the Third Kind"... Mike Myers and Willy Wonka... Paul Hogan's tax woes... the future of your franchise when Shannon Tweed gets involved... the lose your virginity 80s genre... the "Put Shia LaBeouf in Everything" era... Edward James Olmos with a Schwarzenegger ISIS flair... Jack Nicholson sequels... the sadness of the prequels... Terry Crews making movies better... the musical stylings of Mac Davis... the fallacy of Louis Gossett, Jr... Bo Svenson vs Joe Don Baker...

Episode 223: Deucecast Origins

(Show art co-art'ed by Remodeling Clay Shaver)

This episode is like a four fingered hand... the Pinky is missing.  Out doing something with his fake girlfriend on a fake date, filming a fake short film. Or something.
Tonight, it's Dave and Mikey on a very special episode.  If this were an 80's sitcom, a "Very Special Episode" would mean that Dave was dealing with an eating disorder or Mikey was playing inside of a fridge and got locked in... but for The Deucecast Movie Show, it's the short-awaited "origins episode."

Where did the name "Deucecast" come from?  How did Mikey and Dave meet each other?  Where does Pinky come in?  Who is Tommy?  Is Shawn real? 

Dave and Mikey pull back the curtain to talk about what happened to lead to the most popular movie podcast with the name "Deucecast" in the title.  

Plus, a Q&A session, answering inquires from Facebook and email and Twitter, like the hosts' first theatrical films, thoughts on the new release boxes at home, forgotten TV shows into films and more.
Also, listing some fans' own lists of their Top 10 films of all time.  And finally, an in-depth look at a Top 100 list and how to put it together. 

And of course, a name drop of the band Tantric. Because of course Tantric.

Make sure you visit our friends of the show's websites, like Craig Harmann, the worship leader...

Ep 222: Whoever's in New England with Joe Tavano

Taking the podcast to a Southie Direction, Mikey, Dave and Pinky bring in fellow movie lover, geek and all around cool dude Joe Tavano, the founder of RetroZap Podcasting Network.

As the guys begin, a brand new game emerges... "NAME THAT SEAGAL".  Can you tell one Steven Seagal movie from another?  It's harder than you think...

Diving into Boston Films, movies set in and around the Boston area take center stage... classics like "The Town", "The Departed" and even "Celtic Pride"... okay, maybe not all three of those make it.  And Joe, being from the area, gives the down-low on several films like "Jaws", "Mystic River" and even "Fever Pitch".  Plus, the trend of mid-80's New England beach films that feature boats and regattas.  

And what to expect when John Laroquette is atop your movie poster.

Bonus!  What song might be Boston' theme song? Well Dave has no idea, but that doesn't stop him from trying, does it?

And don't forget to check out some our favorite shows on RetroZapped.Com, like Skywalking Through Neverland, TechnoRetro Dads, Brews & Blasters and others!

Episode 220: The DC Comic / BvS Show


When you say comic, you are likely talking about Mikey, Pinky & Dave in The Deucecast Movie Show!  In fact, you can't say Deucecast without DC... even though the guys are more Marvel, they dive into DC Comic movies!

Joining the group is Terrance Malick Apologist and Film Historian Dr Earl, aka, McDreamySteamy, and Friend of the Show, host of the Remodeling Clay podcast Clay Shaver.  

Up first are the birthday movies ("Bridget Jones Diary" is how old??), and then a new segment where the group is forced to discuss situations where Tom Cruise may never win an Academy Award... where Adam Sandler never gets his groove back, if he had a groove... or Avengers Infinity War makes a billion dollars and yet, isn't any good.

Favorite DC Comic movies is the topic, and though there is a lot of Batman and Superman, there is also some Violence, some Perdition, a few Losers, a Vendetta, a Hornet.. and yes, Blue Junk.  

You'll also hear a callback to "Swordfish"... Mikey the Contrarian... and mentions of Jacquline Bisset, David Schwimmer as Superman AND a Plastic Man addition, though that might be a stretch. 

The talk eventually turns to the spectacle that is "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", recently released.  Starring Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck, with Gal Gadot and Jessie Eisenberg, Mikey's boyfriend Kevin Costner in a flashback and Dave's love of Amy Adams, the film is divisive among the hosts and guests... 

The first bit of discussion is spoiler free, just overall opinions... there is a warning given, then a dive into much deeper discussion, filled with spoilers.

And you'll also get to hear the latest "Pretty in Pink"... find out what Pinky thinks of "The Lost Boys"
