Episode 336: The Arnold Sweet 16 (Ft Shaz!)

The biggest movie role tournament in the history of podcasts (disclaimer, that meaning podcasts that are recorded in Meadowbrook, AL) rolls on, as Mikey, Dave and #Twitterless Dr Earl tackle another handful of great movie roles from a legendary Hollywood actor.
This time, Arnold Schwarzaneggar gets his day in the sun, matching up iconic characters like The Terminator, Quaid from Total Recall, John Matrix from Commando, Det Kimble from Kindergarten Cop and much more. 

But to truly make this a well informed episode, the guys had to call in an 80s movie expert.  

On the Binder & Binder Law Firm hotline, TechnoRetro Dad's own Shazbazzer joins the group to discuss their favorites, which is better, which is worse, a love of Conan the Barbarian, what Mad Magazine called Conan, a true love of True Lies, the underrated Running Man and much, much more.

One character is crowned the winner and moves onto the Big Bracket!

Episode 334: Populaire Sports (ft Kaufman)

It's the Annual July 4th episode for The Deucecast Movie Show!!  Mikey, Dave and #TwitterlessDrEarl set up shop in front of the vaunted Deucecast Microphones to spill the best on movies, rumors, pop culture, Natalie Portman (Mikey), Amy Adams (Dave) and Allison Brie Larsen (#TwitterlessDrEarl).

And what better way to celebrate the Independence Day holiday than invite it one of the show's favorite two Friend of the Show Jennifers.... the Delightful Lifer herself, J Kaufman!

After the annual July 4th game of American or Commie (where the crew guesses on who was born on American soil... and who are the commies), they dive into their Sports Films list.

Not just any sports film list... the rules are to omit the big ones -- no football movies, no basketball movies, no baseball movies allowed.  Instead, movies about soccer!  Racing!  Golf!  And... competitive speed typing?  What.

Also a quick look at the new Toy Story Land at Hollywood Studios!

First, Michael and Dave, sans #TwitterlessDrEarl (on missions to El Salvador doing open heart surgeries), are in a featured live show, with a live audience!  A great round of Simple Star Wars Trivia opens up the show, then the guys give their top 5 of the week, Fave Disaster Movies... in honor of the upcoming "Skyscraper", which is DieHard in a building.

Episode 327: Sci Fi Fantasy Films of This Century

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 326: Weddings in Movies

Another edition of The Deucecast Movie Show walks down the podcasting aisle, with Mikey and Dave inviting in The Long Intro-less, Twitterless Dr Earl.  Because Producer Shawn finally got hitched recently, the crew thought it would be fun to talk weddings in movies, both full films and scenes too.

What better way to do that than to invite in the Delightful Jennifer Kaufman, courtesy of the Binder & Binder hotline.

And what better way to talk about wedding movies than to talk about... Kaufman's former podcast The Delightful Life, local soccer teams, soccer rules, hockey rules and more, including a quick debate on the pros & cons of the hockey shootout. 

A new game premieres this episode, a game called "Bridget, Michelle or Kate"... who was in the movies called out?

Moving onto weddings, Dave, Kaufman and Mikey share their quick wedding stories (while Twitterless Dr Earl takes a nap), then onto the Top Five Movie Weddings.  From The Muppets Take Manhattan to Bridesmaids to Spaceballs to My Best Friends Wedding and more, the DCMS celebrates movie nuptials and more. 

And Kaufman hates The Princess Bride.  Still.

The guys match up Tom Cruise roles one by one, until there is only one remaining, with lots of discussions on Mission Impossible movies without the numbers... the Mimi Rogers years... Garrison saying "I haven't seen that" an awful lot... The Ron Kovic dilemma... and lots and lots of shirtless, sweaty volleyball.

And an Emilio Estevez sighting!
