Episode 174: The 2015 Summer Movie Preview

Help us channel our inner Fresh Prince (Mikey) and DJ Jazzy Jeff (d$) and sing with us... "Summer Summer Summer time... time to sit back and watch flicks..."  Oh, where is Pinky?  He's our Spinderella to Mikey's Salt and d$'s Pepa.  #WordUp

Anyway, speaking of summer, its time for our June through August Summer Preview, highlighting the most anticipated... and least anticipated... films coming up very, very soon.

A little Box Office Mojo starts it off, where the guys decide who wins between movie matches like "Inception" vs "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" and "The Rock" vs "Ransom" and "Big Daddy" vs "The Blair Witch Project."

Then, we kick off our official preview, with the ins and outs of... "Spy" with Melissa McCarthy... "Live from New York", the documentary about Saturday Night Live... "Jurassic World" and our love for PrattPrattPratt... "Inside Out" as the guys take on Pixar's latest efforts... apathy towards "Entourage"... Mark Ruffalo's Oscar Bait... "Ted 2" and "Magic Mike XXL"... whether anyone cares about "Terminator Genysys"... the potential for success of "Ant Man"... "Pixels", starring Adam Sandler, and only one of the hosts is looking forward to it... "Train Wreck" with Amy Schumer... "Dark Places" and why one of it's stars will keep Pinky away... "South Paw" and Mikey's and Pinky's salivating over Jake Gyllenhaal... Armie Hammer's new film "The Man from U.N.C.L.E."... the Oscar Bait potential for "Straight Outta Compton"...

Also.. "Minions"!... "Fantastic Four"!... "Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation"!... and Pinky's rule on watching horror movies in the theater.

And what movies are the guys looking forward to the most, and what movies would disappoint Mikey, Pinky and d$ the most if they flopped (PS, Pinky hates "Thor").  Find out in the latest episode of The Deucecast Movie Show!

Episode 173: The All Time Top 100... #100 to 91

Really kicking off our year long series, d$, Pinky & Mikey begin the discussion of their favorite ALL TIME Movies.  The Deucecast Movie Show guys aim to count down 100 of them, ten at a time, starting here with #100.

Movies with baseball... time traveling cars... Catholicism... water parks... Legolas on a shield... Nic Cage doing funny hand moves... simple plans gone awry... and, Barton Fink.  Naturally.

You'll also find out answers to questions like, what iconic role was Sandra Bullock rejected for?  In what movie does d$ enjoy Angelina Jolie because she's not all Brad Pitty?  What Christmas movie does Mikey love and Pinky hate?  And vice versa?  And who decides to finally own the fact that "I love Erin Brockovich.  There, I said it."

These and more are discussed in this latest episode, giving you 30 films that you should see, if only because we love them so much.

And next week... the Annual Deucecast Movie Show Summer Preview!

Episode 172: The May ReFlicktions Show

It's one of our favorite formats, as The Deucecast Movie Show hosts simply talk about the movies they've seen in the last few weeks, both old and new.  Once again, movie historian and Terrence Malick Apologist Dr Earl joins the crew in studio.

Finally, after all of this time, Cesar Romero's portrayal of The Joker
gets some Mikey love.  Or at least a mention.
But first, in a little "Stay Seated or Walk Out", the discussion goes from why Will Smith may or may not still have box office mojo... can Jared Leto's Joker step out of Heath Ledger's Joker's shadow... the potential of the Beauty & The Beast Live Action film compared to Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland and Maleficent... and Mikey says, "...Cesar Romero?"

The newly named Denzel Game kicks off and everyone watches Pinky go down in flames... as usual in this game.

And the ReFlicktions kick off, covering Avengers: Age of Ultron... The Taking of Deborah Logan... Home... Going Clear... Ex Machina... The Judge... Stop at Nothing: The Lance Armstrong Story... 2 Fast 2 Furious... The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift... Fast & Furious... Furious 7... It Follows.. Cinderella... Labor Day... The Village... Sunshine... Leap Year... Predestination... Get Hard... Moonrise Kingdom... True Story... Unbroken... And So It Goes... Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2... WarGames... Unfriended... and Cropsey... They Came Together.. Sunset Blvd

Finally, the second edition of 2015's Top Five Best Movies... where does The DUFF rank?  And does Mikey still have MacFarland USA on his list--furthermore, why?

Don't forget to download our Avengers' spoiler episode from last week, the bonus ep released over the weekend!  And next week, our Top 100 Movies of All Time series officially kicks off, with Mikey, d$ and Pinky's 100th thru 91st favorite films!

This is an episode full of spoilers... the gang gives you ample time to turn off the show if you haven't seen it, but after that, everyone dives right in, chatting about everything from the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe... what was enjoyed and disappointing about the film... why two characters are the same but different in two different movies made by different companies... will Spider-man make an appearance in an upcoming Avengers movie... easter eggs abound... and so much more.

Why was Andy Serkis in this film?  Who is he?  And could that other dude be Black Panther?  What's an Inhuman?   And a quick review of the upcoming Marvel movies in the next five years.

The guys are back and better than ever, as not only is Producer Shawn up in the studio with d$, Pinky, Mikey and Producer Tommy, but the aesthetics got a whole lot brighter... friend of the show Nikki B stops by the pitch in and help with show!

First, find out where Mikey's been and why his month has been so, so crazy... then in Movie Birthdays, it's hard to believe that Crimson Tide is 20 years old... then, in the Ryan Phillippe Game, Pinky throws some curve balls with actors like Hugo Weaving & Ben Kingsley and who is the one playing the game dumb enough to forget ALL the subtitles of ALL the Hobbit films?  Find out.

And Nikki brings the chick flick touch to the Top Five, as the gang discusses their Top Five Favorite Movie Couples... everyone from Robin & Marian (no, not that one, but that one)... Jack & Karen... Sam & Molly Wheat... Vincent & Mia... and more, with romance from films like Titanic to The Notebook to... The Waterboy? 

Oh, and Nikki finds out which Pride & Prejudice she should be watching.  And it's not the one with Keira Knightley.

Everyone's favorite vintage movie segment, Pretty in Pink, returns as Pinky discusses a John Cusack classic, and gets assigned another classic next up.

Episode 169: Building a Kingdom

In a very special episode of The Deucecast Movie Show, the guys are off for a week while Mikey interviews a good friend of the show, Stan Daniel.  Stan is the owner and proprietor of the local favorite comic shop, Kingdom Comics, and opens up a bit on the state of the comic & movie industry, on how he built a comic empire from an attempt at buying an X-Men comic, the unknown origins of his co-hort Jason, and the trials and tribulations of putting together not just a comic shop, but an awesome hang out.

This episode was recorded in May of 2014, and is played back now as a special ep... regular recording sessions were cut short when Mikey had to go do something stupid like, oh, I dunno, help his wife have a baby.  Pansy.

Hope you enjoy this departure from the usual!

Episode 168: Close Encounters Intermission

It's a special version of The Deucecast Movie Picture Show, as we roll out an Intermission... a chance to spend a little time on one classic film.  This time, we take on 1977's "Close Encounters of the Third Kind"!

In studio, d$, Mikey and Pinky are joined by Hurricane Rhett, who says this is one of his all time favorite films, and the gang takes on the film, it's history, behind the scenes drama, how Richard Dreyfus got the part, how director Steven Spielberg would change it if he could now and Hurricane Rhett gives a dissertation on the famous five note jingle.

Plus, you'll also hear "Dark Mashed Potato Confessions" from Mikey, and somehow, someway, Pinky steers the entire show into Lifetime movies vs Hallmark Movies, because he does that sometimes.

Enjoy this quick half hour of Deucecast awesomeness as we have ourselves a "Close Encounter!"

Episode 167: Some Childhood Favorites

The boys are back and better than ever... of course, Mikey had to bail before the episode was to begin--some nonsense about his very pregnant wife having contractions and such.  We will discuss his commitment to the show soon.

Filling in the Mikey-shaped hole, TechnoRetro Dads co-host Shazbazzar steps in as we discuss our favorite movies from when we were children.  With one growing up in the 70s/80s, another growing up in the late 80s and yet another growing up in the 90s, a wide range of films are discussed, including sharing love for The Goonies... The Secret of NIMH... The Last Unicorn... Lord of the Rings... WarGames... and does Howard the Duck hold up?  All of these and even more films you may have forgotten about.

You'll also get great discussions on the loss of Saturday morning cartoons... why ...Say Anything might not be as good as we pretend it is... a quick mention of other great Cusack films from the 80s...  who sings "Young Hearts Beat Fast" in Karate Kid... d$'s attempt to write the Mannequin novelization... Saved by the Bell... a thrilling round of Rotten Tomatoes...

And, Pinky reveals how much he loves/likes/apathetic/dislikes/hates Pee Wee's Big Adventure in Pretty in Pink!
