Episode 287: The Greatest Year of Movies Ever

It's taken a year or so, but The Deucecast Movie Show has finally narrowed down 40 years of film into two years for the finals.  What Year of Movies will take home the trophy as Greatest Year of Movies Ever?

To decide, hosts Mikey, Pinky, and Dave invite in podcasting royalty, with Dinner for Geeks, My Star Wars Story and radio host Scott Ryfun, as well as the Geek Out Loud podcasting empire grande poobah Steve Glosson!  (Glosson finally returns after years of Mikey asking!)

First up, Birthday Movies, where we find out exactly how old movies like K-19 The Widowmaker, Honey I Blew Up the Kid, The Lost Boys and even Bebe's Kids!

Then a round of Box Office Mojo, calling out the Top 10 in both 1984 and 2015 based on top domestic box office rankings -- Beverly Hills Cop! Inside Out! Indiana Jones!  But not... 9 to 5...

And then, the finale, the championship, the big match of all movie matches, and one that you likely could guess the winner of already.

But that's why the game is played!  Including a battle between a previous battle like 1989 vs 2015, with Glosson & Ryfun going head to head.  And Mikey stirring the pot.
