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...

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.

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.

Episode 485: Top Summer Movies of 1985-89


The heat is on, as Glenn Frey would say -- fitting that it's from Miami Vice, a TV show right in the era that Dave, Mikey, & Dr Earl take on tonight!  The summer films from 1985 thru 1989, any movie that came out from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend in those respective years.

And the lists of "could be in my Top Five" are growing every block of movie years, and so it was important we bring on someone who was in their movie prime as the guys are -- Nick, host of Podcast of The Whills (and the new MOM CU), joins the show for the first time to break it all down and list them all out.

First up, a little chat on what exactly Podcast of the Whills actually is (hint: its from a Star War), then a little Brat Pack guess 'em game -- think you know the 80s movies of Andrew McCarthy, Judd Nelson, Rob Lowe, and Emilio Estevez? Think you know who woo'd Molly Ringwald in "Fresh Horses" or who was the plucky lawyer in "From the Hip"?  Play along, see if you can be the one in the group who dominated.

Then the Top Five Summer Films of 1985 thru 1989 -- some pretention of course... He-Man... Mel Brooks... Elisabeth Shue love... Dottie from Pee Wee love... Joey Pants mourns Ritchie... hot Cyrano de Bergerac talk... "I'll Buy THAT For a Dollar!"... d$'s pick for the best Vietnam movie ever made... and much more in a great discussion about the late 80s classics.

Welcome back to Part 2 of the Summer Series -- last week, we ranked the summer movies of the 70s... this week, we jumped to the first half of the ME Decade -- 1980 to 1984!

Indiana Jones and Elliott and Kermit and Carol Anne and WOLVERINE and Shall We Play a Game and on and on and on... we've all got a list with a dozen or more names on it, and because the task is so daunting, what better way to tackle it than to bring on a podcasting legend and friend of the show SHAZBAZZAR!! 

We talk about where Shaz has been spending his time since the end of TechnoRetro Dads... avoiding Vic's Damone... playing a little IMDB Game... love of Marc Singer... the greatest fan film ever made... the 80s teens propensity to create world destroying technology... and so, so much more.
