Episode 585: Comedic Actors, Dramatic Roles

 After a successful summer last year, a summer of the fans, a... FanboySummer if you will, we decided if it worked once, it's gotta work again, right?  I mean, look at Zoolander Too!  And Blair Witch Project! And Thor Love & Thunder! If we struck gold once, it's bound to happen again!

Thus, FanboySummer Part Deuce! 

And in our first of 9 Fanboy Summer eps, we welcome in Jonathan Hile of the Captain's Log & Lightsaber Podcast!  

Up first, the return of the DbIMDb game, taking on the algorithm of what IMDb thinks is most popular.  A little catch up with Hile, discussing the podcast, and then a dive into the Top 5 topic...

Tonight, a take on actors known for their comedic chops who give incredible dramatic turns in certain roles - be it a serious legacy only to turn to comedy, then back to drama (Leslie Nielsen) or someone who had been dabbling in the drama all along, but was only really known for their comedy prowess (Robin Williams) or even someone finding their footing in Hollywood (Jennifer Aniston) and even more.

Stick around for a great little bit on Adventures by Disney because why not.

Episode 583: The Movie Role Duo Mega Tourney

As the Big Bracket draws near, with Episode 600 a mere 17 episodes and a summer season away, it's time to crank up the entries... and what better way to bring in a plethora, a cornucopia, a tundra if you will of iconic roles, than to have a Mega Tourney with over 60 famous and beloved characters from cinema and film and movie flicker shows...

But to do something so big, we have to have a big roster of Friends of the Show... Spawn of Ryfun, Lil G, Garrison.... the father of the Spawn of Ryfun, that being Scotty RyRy... and the pride of The Beaches of Cheyenne, Roth from Wyoming.

Together with d$, Mikey, and #TwitterlessDrEarl, they dive in to figure out the battles between View Askew and Aurora, Illinois... between dimwits and stoners... between classic duos both odd and slapsticky... 

And Garrison makes a surprise turn in his quest to see Ethan Hunt win the whole tourney. A betrayal if you will.

And who knew these guys loved Twilight so much?

Harry & Lloyd
Ricky Bobby & Cal

Episode 582: Ranking the MCU Last 10

It's the end of an era in the MCU, as Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3 has just hit theaters - and it's the last hurrah of the Marvel Cinematic Universe group of characters that link audiences to the Infinity Saga... sure, some heroes will carry over, but it does feel like we are saying good-bye to the MCU as we know it.

But what kind of ending is it, and how does it stack up against the rest of the MCU films released since Avengers: Endgame?

That's what the Deucecast crew aims to find out -- with Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl on the show, and Young Spawn of Ryfun, the Pride of Albany, GA, Lil G, but now he's a Big G, fresh off of his prom and headed to Senior Portraits, Garrison Ryfun joins the show to discuss and rank in their own top tens those very films.

Starting with Spider-Man Far From Home, then to Black Widow, where the show picks up another guest, one Steve Glosson, who comes in to present his own list.

Then the Shang-Chi, Eternals, Spider-Man No Way Home, then Doctor Strange & the Multiverse of Madness, with Thor Love & Thunder, Black Panther Wakanda Forever, then Ant-Man and the Wasp Quantumania, and ending with Guardians 3, it's a long discussion, but a worthwhile one.

Plus, everyone but Steve (who questions as to whether he's seen it or not) also give their own quick review on Guardians 3 (SPOILER FREE, by the way).

And stick around for the ending, which goes off the rails as usual, from who gets invited to the show, Mikey's dismissal of Scotty Ryfun's concerns, Punisher movies, TMNT movies, Cannonball Run Criterion Collections and so much more. And of course, Casey's Biggest Hits.

Big plans ahead for the summer at The Deucecast Movie Show, so in an effort to continue the quest to find the greatest roles of all time... it's another Big Bracket Tourney.

This time, friend of the show Roth from Wyoming stops by with his own bracket, featuring two of his fave movie genres... on one side, the classic and modern westerns of the age, featuring the classic and modern roles in the tournament... Butch Cassidy, the Sundance Kid, Will Kane, Bill Mumy, The Man with No Name, Doc Holliday, all of the Wyatt Earps (the good one and the Costner one) and more.

On the other side, the classic and modern musical roles of the age -- Maria Von Trapp, Lil Orphan Annie (in a heated battle, by the way), Dorothy, Willy Wonka and more, many of which lead to a true "what makes a musical?" discussion.

Episode 574: A Veritable Smorgasbord of Best Picture Nominees

As the Oscar season finally closes, the Deucecast trio - Mikey, d$, #TwitterlessDrEarl - pulls in one more Oscar topic: Best Pictures!

But not any Best Pictures... nay, says the horse, oh Neigh! We discard the Best Picture winners (because seriously, we are tired of talking about how crappy Griding Nemo) and go straight for the Nominees!

First up, Birthday movies return, including the birthdays of The Dude... Tom Selleck going to China... Amy Adams daily living... and how terrible movies are in March - oh, and Templeton. The rat.

Then, a quick round of Razzie Award themed Rotten Tomatoes (including a dominant performance that actually was on the up n up. by the way), and finally, the guys scan the scope of the 2000s and look at all the non-winning Best Picture nominees, and give their faves!

Episode 573: The Supporting Actor Tourney

 What better way to follow up one heck of a Oscar role tournament than to do one more, this time with Supporting Actors and Supporting Actresses... and as you'll find out, with not quite enough to fill the bracket, a little creativity was used...

Either way, where else can you get the likes of Maria Von Trapp going up against The Graduate's Mrs Robinson or Rita Moreno taking on Marisa Tomei in an epic legendary role battle.  Only at the Deucecast Movie Show, that's right.

And to do take on such a task, Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl have to bring in a little help - that comes in the shape of Roth from Wyoming, host of the Good Day 4 a Movie Podcast... and then another little surprise joins in to break the ties and give a Commodus style thumbs up or thumbs down.

Wednesday, March 1, 2023

Episode 572: The Oscar Winners Tourney

In the midst of the Oscar season, the SAG Awards, the PGA Awards, the BAFTAs, the Blockbuster Entertainment Awards, and of course, The Deucies, we mustn't lose sight of the fact that we are still filling the Big Bracket with names and memorable, ICONIC, movie roles -- so what better way to merge  the award season into the Big Bracket with an Oscar Winner Tourney.

And to help decide this all important winner -- Lil G, the Spawn of Scotty Ryfun, joins Mike and d$ while #TwitterlessDrEarl is on assignment in Nova Scotia. 

Sixteen Oscar winning actresses -- only roles that won the golden statue, not just nominated, because if you're not first, you're last -- on one side, and 16 Oscar winning actors on the other.

Tonight's ep involves some incredible actresses -- Emma Stone and Jessica Chastain hope that being recent winners will cement their own legacy in the voters eyes, while Hollywood royalty like Vivian Leigh and Audrey Hepburn hope that multiple generations of stardom will put them through.  Gregory Peck's Atticus Finch strides through the courtroom of Bracket Opinion, while Daniel Plainview drinks your Big Bracket Milkshake. 

Some actresses appear twice, some movies get multiple shots at glory, and for some roles, this might be their only chance to move forward. 

And who knew that Mikey hated Gladiator so doggone much?

Deucecast Extra: Gunn's DC Plans & The Bad Batch

In an extra ep from The Deucecast - mostly in part because d$ is currently on a boat in the Caribbean Sea, but also because #TwitterlessDrEarl just wanted a day off, and Mikey didn't feel like recording on a Tuesday morning.

But either way, it's an audio experience of the Deucecast Extra on the YouTube Channel, this time all about James Gunn's speech concerning the future of DC films. Plus Rhett is here to say things like "The majority of the population are morons.

Episode 569: Who Won 2022?

The new year has begun, winter is crashing around us, and it's time to reflect on what made our moviedom in the last year... and for the second time, we ask, Who Won the Year?  And maybe for the first time, because we can't remember, we ask Who Also Lost the Year?

First up, a few quick reviews -- "Living", as seen by Dr Earl, "Aftersun" as seen by Mikey and Dr. Earl, and "Women Talking", as seen by Mikey and Dave... and those Oscar nominated films lead into the discussion of the recent Oscar nominations, with Mikey going all in on Top Gun Maverick... Dave making a case for Everything Everywhere All At Once... and Dr Earl chiming in with pretention.

Then, a top five of the winners and the losers... how can Margot Robbie be both?  And Tom Hanks down year, with Tom Cruise's amazing year... who won the animation game... big time directors taking a hit, but big time blockbusters becoming a hit... too much Korg, just enough Jimmy Cam, and not enough Hong Chau.

Of course, the usual rabbit trails of random conversation.

Dave, Mikey, and #TwitterlessDrEarl welcome in Friend of the Show, streaming live from the booming metropolis somewhere in Bainbridge, Wyoming, that is one Jacob "Roth from Wyoming."

Together, the foursome discuss their top ten faves of the year from all over the place, as far back as 1931 all the way through the 60s and 70s and in the 00s -- O Russell talk... Mamet chatter... Pierce Brosnan's singing voice... classic Christmas movies set in Budapest... Tarantino's faves... assassination conspiracies... Peckinpah and the violence of the west... John Wayne and the hilarity of the west... d$ and Roth fawn over Paulette Goddard... The Seventh Seal does NOT feature Demi Moore...

Episode 567: ReFlicktion Babylon (January RF Part 2)

Make sure you listen to Part 1 of January ReFlicktions, then come back for the 2nd half of the usual massive list of films that Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl have seen in the last six or seven weeks.

Some of the discussion includes Will Smith's latest and could it have been Oscar bait if only... Rian Johnson returning with another Benoit Blanc's mystery skills... some of the best animation of the year... Bond's music... Christian Bale in the Civil War and Ric Flair in a wrestling ring... creepy dolls... Brendan Fraser's comeback... the latest Baumbach...

And a longer than usual discussion on Babylon, how Mikey loved it, how Earl hasn't seen it, and how Dave cannot decide what he thinks.

Oh, and more Nic Cage.
