Episode 210: The 2016 Movie Preview (and Top 100 Review)

Two big segments on the show this week!  Mikey, Pinky & Dave have a host-filled episode with no one else in studio but Producer Tommy holding down the keyboard, monitor and brass section.  And of course, Producer Shawn, always on the Annex Couch, first to arrive and last to leave.  Thank you, Producer Shawn, for your hard work and dedication to the cause of Deucentertainment.

A little "Stay Seated // Walk Out" discussion brings us answers to the questions of "Will Quentin Tarantino actually retire after his 10th film?" and "Have we had enough of Brad & Jen?" and "Should JJ Abrams be bought for reviving a huge Marvel franchise?"

And what franchise could JJ take over that would save it from the depths of suck?

The summer movie preview takes a gander at upcoming big films and Mike, Pinky & Dave's takes on them...

Chats commence about Benedict Cumberbatch in "Dr. Strange"... "Neighbors 2" with Seth Rogen & Zac Efron... the obligation to see "Batman v  Superman: Dawn of Justice"... love for Emily Blunt in "Girl on the Train"... some Clooney film called "Money Monster"... prospects for the chick "Ghostbusters"... how Pinky HATES "Ghostbusters"... Tom Hanks latest Oscar grab... the most tongue-in-cheek Marvel film to date... Jennifer Lawrence and Hugh Jackman begin wrapping up their time in the X-Universe... the latest Da Vinci Code movie... Emma Stone & Ryan Gosling re-team... Pixar's "Finding Nemo"... Matt McConaughy in a Civil War drama... excitement for "Suicide Squad"... the mixed opinions on the new "Star Trek" films... Jeff Goldblum in "ID Resurgence"... hopes for Billy Zane in "Zoolander Eye Eye"... Disney's "Moana" & "Zootopia" and the Disney-like "Secret Life of Pets"...

Also, featuring a lengthy conversation on returning to the world of Harry Potter in "Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them".  Is JK Rowling doing too much?  What are the prospects for success?  Will it succeed or fail?

More thoughts on "Captain America Civil War", asking the heartbreaking question "...Captain America is fighting Iron Man?" and how massive this will be.

"Rogue One" and the label of "A Star Wars Story"... will it help?  And is Biggs Darklighter making a real appearance?

Then, the show shifts to a quick overview of the Top 100 so far... what movies will need to go in upon further review?  "Nightcrawler"?  "Thank You For Smoking"?  "Leap Year" with Amy Adams?
What movies might fall out of the lists?  Movies that are more about nostalgia like "Monty Python & the Holy Grail" or movies that are good for one viewing like "The Godfather" or movies that can just be bumped, like "Dogma".

And then movies that are too recent to count, but could easily find their way into the Top 100 lists, movies like "Mad Max Fury Road", or movies that need to move up the lists, like "Fargo".

Finally... Pinky gives the films that he thinks will make it into his new Top 100 list.  Its about 100 films long.  Stay tuned.

Episode 209: The Not-2015 Top Ten of 2015

Some of the discoveries you'll make on this episode of The Deucecast
Move Show
Every year, Mikey, Pinky & Dave talk about movies seen, and when January rolls around, it's time to talk about the movies seen that stood out.

The Top Ten of 2015 Films is an episode to come, but there are a lot of movies that were seen in 2015 that were actually NOT from 2015.  Thus... the NOT 2015 Top Ten of 2015!

The top ten favorite films of Mikey, Pinky & Dave that they watched last year that weren't actually from last year!

First, before that can kick off, a rousing round of Box Office Mojo, guessing the all time money making films both worldwide and adjusted for inflation.

And then, the countdown begins. Overviews of new found love for films that feature a TechnoRetro Dad host Shaz selection... a creepy show that Mikey fell for... a tie for Dave with films that star Brie Larson... a growing affection for Elizbeth Olsen... Pinky's favorite fun documentary... the saddest film that perhaps any of us have ever seen... Jennifer Aniston getting some love on some lists... and...

...the discovery of the real Magnolia fan in the room.

Plus, Mikey is known for his love of Dan Stevens.  Yet... there is another man muscling into Mikey's mancrush heart.

Episode 208: The Comedy Confusion of the Crist

Once again, the Deucecast Movie Show blackmails talks a great guest into coming on the show!

First, Dave, Mikey & Pinky welcome in Friend of the Show, Terence Malick Apologist and Film Historian Dr Earl to toss out some Birthday Movies, those films that came out this month five, ten, twenty years ago!  Because you needed to know how old Jean Claude Van Damme's Lionheart actually is, we are there for you.

Then, we invite on the line nationally loved and adored comedian John Crist!  The guy behind the hilarious "Christian Girls Instagram" and "Christian Mingle Inspector" calls in to talk about... well, really to talk about Guilty Pleasure Comedies of the 2000s... unless you are Mikey, who did Legit Comedies of the 2000s... and unless you are Dr Earl, who did Comedies of the First 10 Years of the Century... and Pinky, who just showed up when he wanted to.

Either way... the guys dive into John Crist's career... his favorite comedians... his comedian crush... the legitimacy of comedies... crapping on the guest's point... the struggle that comedians face when telling jokes years ago and now... lots of Colton Dixon talk... and of course, a Mark Driscoll joke...

And of course, movies!  Black Dynamite... Pitch Perfect... Zoolander... Bench Warmers and more and more.

Then, in reverse order, a little Ryan Phillippe Game going on before the show ends!

Conan the Barbarian makes an appearance in Pretty in Pink, while Pinky gets assigned another classic.

Once again, its time for Valentine's Pink assignments!  Not only Dr Earl, but Friends of the Show Jennifer Kaufman and Remodeling Clay join it to give Pinky a few Valentine's movies to watch and review, including a lightheared romp from Dr Earl and a movie originally titled Monkey Heart.

Bryan Cranston's amazing performance in a pretty good movie... Christian Bale's amazing performance in a really good movie... and Tom Hardy's upstaging of Leo DiCaprio by giving an amazing performance in an amazing movie.

And, of course, Dr Earl and Maria Conchita Alonso have a moment.

Ridiculous Six… Krampus… Ex Machina… Flash Gordon… Bill Murray’s Very Murray Christmas… Spotlight… The Loft… The Running Man… Crazy Love… Creed… Trumbo… The Babadook… Girlfriends… That Sugar Film… Hateful Eight… Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure… Dune… Me, Earl & the Dying Girl… Bone Tomahawk… Sharknado… Joy… Pootie Tang… The Departed… License to Drive… Alien… The Iron Sheik… William Shatner’s Chaos on the Bridge… Sisters… Hotel Rwanda… Trojan War… Take Shelter… Shotgun Stories… People Places Things… The Revenant

Episode 206: All Time Top 100... 20 through 11

It's getting ever closer, that being the All Time Top 100 favorite movies of Mikey, Pinky & d$... but first, the ten movies that lead up to it.

James Cameron gets some love with a waterlogged sci-fi film... Spielberg gets love with two films on two lists... Indiana Jones makes an appearance... Mikey has to defend really crappy movies like Dune... a great romantic comedy with a Bill Withers tune... the difference in Diehard and Diehard 2... the great music from a Daniel Day-Lewis classic... Tarantino meets Uma... Mikey gives you a few movies you can't refuse...

And the guys spend not only ten minutes on a Bryan Adams 90s tune, but also a huge Celine Dion hit from the late 90s.

Plus... hear Mikey use the phrase "F me, he cleared it!" and Pinky say, "It's a great love story! And at the end, you get to see a boat sink!"

The numbers get smaller and the movies get bigger!

Episode 205: The 2015 Lumps of Coal

It's a short show this week, so we hope you had a Merry Christmas and hope you do have a Happy, Happy New Year!  First, we say goodbye to Shotglass Digital Network... thanks Jimmy & the Shotglass family.  You guys have been amazing to our show and we cannot show enough appreciation for that!

This week, we go over the absolute dreck from the last year, discussing the five worst films we've seen in 2015.  Not all of them are from the last 12 months, but these are the worst films we've seen in those 12 months.

And we are talking baaaaaad films.  Not craptastic films.  Not films that are so bad they are good.  No.  Bad movies.  Horrible movies.  Movies that feature Jordana Brewster at the top.  Movies that say "Starring Kate Heigl".  Movies that feature the words "Cat" and "Woman" together.

Hear about what might be the biggest waste of a good cast to make a bad movie... hear Pinky get angry about a movie... hear d$ rail against The Fantastic Four (again)... hear Mikey talk about the movie that might be one of the worst films he's ever seen, this year or not.

That's all on the 2015 Lumps of Coal Episode!!

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens Special

Because we love Star Wars: The Force Awakens so much, we decided to do a quick review show of the movie itself.

Spoilers? Not at first!

We give a big overview of the movie itself, its possibly legacy and how great it is, then give a 10 second countdown to the beginning of spoilers.

Be warned:  If you are still listening after those 10 seconds, and you haven't seen the movie... first, what is wrong with you?  But second, we will ruin it for you -- but you will have plenty of warning.

Also joining the show is old school The Deucecast contributor and now co-host of Card Trader Illuminerdy Podcast, Hurricane Rhett Barnett.  Enjoy the bonus episode and Merry Christmas!!!
