Intermission: The Last Picture Show – Episode 137

In 1971, Peter Bogdavich shot a film in black and white, casted relative unknowns like Jeff Bridges, Cybill Shepherd, Randy Quaid and Timothy Bottoms, along with old Hollywood legends like Ben Johnson, and created a masterpiece film about a dying small town from the 50s buried in West Texas.  Winner of 2 Academy Awards and nominated for 8, the guys tackle The Last Picture Show in this latest Intermission episode.

P!nky, d$ and Mikey discuss the plot, the making of and the legacy of this classic... we hope you enjoy it, and we hope you watch the film itself!

Episode 133 -- Thank you Robin Williams

On August 11th, 2014, we movie lovers had a tremendous loss occur with the passing of one of the most prolific actors of our generation, that being Robin Williams.


So the guys--d$, Mikey and P!nky--along with special in-studio guests Hurricane Rhett and Matty the Former Co-Host, with a special appearance by Deucecast Sweetheart Steph, pay tribute to Robin Williams by doing a full retrospective.


The guys don't dive into Robin's private life, his struggles or his demons, leaving that for other shows... instead, they track his complete career from beginning to the most recent films, sometimes breezing past a few, other times, like "Good Will Hunting", "Good Morning Vietnam", "Dead Poets Society", "Aladdin" and more, taking their time and having a great discussion on those films.


Join us as we have a great time celebrating the films of Robin Williams--and yes, acknowledging the fact there were some clunkers too--on this episode of The Deucecast Movie Picture Show
