And for the first time on the show, co-host of the Cinemartyrs, a podcast about watching bad Christian films, Atlanta based Bill Seybolt (that's SY-BOLT, thank you very much) joins the guys on the Binder & Binder Hotline.  This, of course, brings the discussion back to Christian Mingle, Lacey Chebert, Stephen Toblowsky and a maritime themed agency.  

First up, doing the birthday movies!  How old is The Depahted?  What about Training Day or The Color of Money or even Enter the Ninja?  Find out here.

Then, a rousing round of bDMI, or Reverse IMDb, reading the actors in a movie and asking for the guesses -- how fast can you guess the films? 

And finally, fave religious films!  Dr. Earl in the pretentious corner, drinks his Chablis while wearing his blazer with the patches on the arm, comes up with the hipster man bun movies ("The Passion of Joan of Arc"?), while everyone else goes more normal...

Episode 245: The Greatest Movie Year Tourney Part III

Mikey, Dave and Pinky come together once again to talk about movie years.  Great movie years.  In fact, the greatest movie year ever, in the greatest movie year ever tournament.  But this much awesome cannot be held only by the three hosts, so joining the group is frequent contributor and friend of the show Remodeling Clay Shaver.

This time, we see movies like Weird Science, Top Gun, The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off and Aliens go head to head when 1986 takes on 1985.

A controversial decision and disagreement comes in with 1975 runs up against 2005.

A first round blowout in the match of 1975 vs 2005

A close battle with 2010 and 2012.

Titanic from 1997 sails in to try and sink 2001.

And a pattern seems to emerge with the power of the 2000s, with 1984 going straight after the year 2000.

Episode 244: These Are Our Confessions

It's confession time... Mikey, Pinky and Dave have things to get off their chest, secrets (or not so secrets) that they have been hiding down deep... but confession is good for the soul.  It's time to talk about these things out loud so the healing can begin.

And what better way to bare the soul than to do it with friends... Terrance Malick apologist, Witt Stillman fan and movie historian Dr Earl comes into talk about what is weighing on him, and Friend of the Show and Miss Independent Jeremy Burgess joins the group as well to discuss his movie confessions.

The state of Pixar!  Hating on The Rock!  Hating on The Snape!  Hating on Costner!  Loving on The Cage!  Becoming a Bronie!  Hallmark lovin!  And so much more...

Movies... actors... actresses... genres... tropes... these are the things that only a few people love... or things that everyone loves that only a few hate... or that everyone knows about that hasn't been experienced...

These are our confessions.

Also, our first Cepheus reference, as well as Ginuine's "Pony"...

We also cover our most anticipated fall movies that are hitting the cinemas. Mikey, Dave and Pinky welcome in Terrence Malick Apologist and Film Historian Dr Earl as well as the millennial indie film nerd, Jeremy Burgess.

Episode 241: The Mt Rushmore of Directors

After the actors and actresses that have been placed on each personal Mt Rushmore as All Time Favorites (see Episode 219 for Actors and Episode 227 for Actresses), its only fitting that Directors get their due.  And of course, what better way to do it than to bring in Terrance Malick Apologist and Film Historian the Honorable Former Deacon Dr Earl.

Up first, a fast paced edition of Denzel, with someone forgetting the names of the Hobbit movies, someone else forgetting the arthouse award winning film Alicia Vikander was in, and what exactly was the name of the guy who played Freddy Kruger??

Then over to picking the all time best directors ever, based on love of movies, love of directing style, based on the films in the host's favorite movies and Top 100 films of all time...  you'll hear various stories of why certain films are liked and disliked, and who barely made the cut.

Names like Spielberg!  Russell!  Tarantino! Altman! Whit Stillman... wait, who?  And where does Dr Earl place Malick upon Rushmore... or does he place him at all....??

Plus, a close look at the career of director Andy Tennant, director of "It Takes Two" with Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen.

Dave and Mikey are doing the show with four fingers again... Pinky-less.  Dr. Earl does come in, though and the guys are proud to bring in Paige Davis... known for TLC's Trading Spaces, the touring ensemble of Chicago and Beauty & the Beast... and becoming known as The Deucecast Movie Show Friend of the Show!

Working through some throat issues (Mikey) and a cough (Dave), the show must go on!

Paige tells the audience about one of her favorite charities, Operation Backpack (you can find the link up shortly on The Deucecast Movie Show webpage sidebar), which gets school supplies to over 20,000 NYC children who need the help.

And Mikey questions whether Paige knows the actual boroughs of New York, despite the fact she has lived there for forever.

The topic tonight is 1990s Romantic Comedies... Dave loves You've Got Mail... Paige loves Dave (no kidding!)... Earl loves As Good as It Gets... Mikey loves Tin Cup... and enjoy Paige Davis walking a tightrope of politics (which Mikey squirmed but Earl and Dave giggled)... get a shout out to Paige's husband Patrick Page (yes, that makes Paige Page... hence the Davis)... and a few people employ the Jennifer Kaufman Rule by insert films that don't actually fit the topic... a Broadway show timeline for Paige Davis... there is yearning for Tom & Meg reunion... why Paige hated Sleepless in Seattle... and the locale of You've Got Mail

Episode 236: The Best Movie Year Ever Tournament Opening Round

In the many years of The Deucecast Movie Show, there have been hundreds, maybe thousands of movies that have been reviewed, from early in the 1900s until very recently.

However, the guys of the show have wondered what is truly the best year of film ever... not the best movies of the year -- but the BEST YEAR of MOVIES EVER.

The years have been given numbers, and randomly numbers are called to fill out a bracket with 40 different years in it.

First up...
2004 (Hitch, The Incredibles, National Treasure & Mean Girls and, negatively, Catwoman)
1986 (Platoon, Aliens, Ferris Bueller's Day Off & Stand By Me)

Then a battle with
1981 (Raiders of the Lost Ark, Superman II, Stripes & Evil Dead)
1998 (Saving Private Ryan, The Big Lebowski, You've Got Mail &  A Bug's Life)

And the big battle between Saving Private Ryan and Raiders of the Lost Ark

And then you have:
1992 (Aladdin, Unforgiven, A Few Good Men & Reservoir Dogs)
2008 (Iron Man, Wall*E, The Dark Knight & Tropic Thunder)

What do you pick?

Episode 235: Summer Lovin'

It's hot outside, like walking through hot soup, but the podcast is cool enough to replace your AC.  Not sure what that means, but this episode is awesome, so whatever.

Mikey, Pinky & Dave bring in Terrence Malick Apologist and Film Historian Dr Earl, and on the Subway Fresh Take Hotline, it's The Delightful Life host and friend of the show Jennifer Kaufman, the girl with the voice so nice that she only comes on so the guys can hear her talk about anything.

First up, a round of IMDb, reading the list of films and naming the actors... including the not-famous-then but famous-now actor who played "Orderly".

Then, its the favorite Summer Films... films that are set in and around summer -- road trips and summer camps and sport camps and vacations and even possibly movies set the night of high school graduation (which technically is summer, even though it just started)

The political incorrectness of "Heavyweights"... Michael Ian Black & Bradley Cooper getting married... the Nancy McKeon summer film that Dave misses... the love of Lucy Deakins... who in the studio are the Rotten Tomato critics and who is the audience... a classic Nia Vardalos vacation film... Jennifer Kaufman's love of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding"... and Dude Kaufman's love of the same... the difference in "American History X" and "American Graffiti" and which one is a better date movie... the brilliance of Jason Segel and the rapidity of Jesse Eisenberg... lamenting Lindsey Lohan... female reboots of all male classics... A Where Are They Now? with the cast of "Summer School"...

And if a film that takes place over the course of the fall, winter and spring, can you call it a "Summer Film"?  Jennifer Kaufman defends, while Dave gives her the facts.

And the love of "My Life in Ruins" and the audience who does love it.

Tuesday, July 19, 2016

Episode 233: If I Can Change & You Can Change...

It's a tradition like apple pie, hot dogs, baseball and Will Smith movies... The Deucecast Movie Show once again giving you an Americana themed episode, celebrating the best of patriotic, all American, we love this land kind of films.

Joining Pinky, Mikey & Dave in studio is the Terrence Malick apologist, film historian and Brie Larson crush-holder, the estimable Dr. Earl.

First, birthday movies will tell you how old "Legally Blonde" and "Kazaam" and "Point Break" all are, as they all came out in July of various previous years.

Then, reaching back to a game not played since The Deucecast Episode LXII, for the Independence Day week, a game called "American or Commie".  Who was born in America?  And who is foreign born, naturally making them a communist (for the purposes of this game, of course...).  And you'll find out where Tom Skerritt, Emilio Estevez and yes, Amy Adams hails from.
And then, a run down of movies that are considered slices of Americana or downright patriotic... movies like "In America" and "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" and "Red Dawn" and even the film that actually ended the Cold War.

Theories on how the Air Force One commies would be treated today... Mikey's new love of "Wahlburgers"... the puzzlement of what "The Danger Zone" actually means... the filmography of Heath Ledger... writing a paper on the Civil War, using only a movie for reference... why Rocky Balboa is more American than you...

Finally, in the returning Pretty in Pink, Pinky gives his rundown of the movie "Clueless" and gets another great 90s classic to watch for next go'round.

Tuesday, July 5, 2016

Episode 232: PinkFlicktions

Topics include... The lack of songs that are written directly for movies now... liking James Gunn... the making of (and the crap that is) Warcraft... Pinky's Tom Hanks List... Nic Cage's bad southern accent... more Apocalypse talk... Pinky's Marvel talk... and much more...

Episode 231: Cult Classic Films - The Live Show

Coming to you live and recorded from a small side room (and not the promised main stage, but who's counting...) at the annual Magic City Con in Birmingham, Alabama, it's The Deucecast Movie Show!
Dave, Mikey and Pinky hold court to first do a quick audience participation version of The Rotten Tomatoes Game, then the main segment kicks off.

It's "Cult Classic Films", however you may define it.  Movies that the guys feel that have quite a following, movies that aren't forgotten, movies that really define a slice of a generation.

Episode 230: The Unnecessary Sequels

You could say every episode after Ep 1 of this show is an unnecessary sequel... but yet, its 229 episodes later.  Being Pinkless again, Dave and Mikey welcome back Hurricane Rhett to the studio, as well as Producer Shawn, and on the line... it's Scott Ryfun!

Before the lists begin, it's time to play another "NAME THAT..." game, this time with acting legend Jean-Claude Van Damme.  Can you tell your "Maximum Risk" from "Cyborg" from "Hard Target" from "Lionheart"?  Find out as you hear the descriptions and make the guess on the titles.  

Finally, because "Now You See Me 2" isn't called "Now You Don't", it qualifies as an "Unnecessary Sequel".  Listen in as Dave, Mikey, Ryfun & Hurricane Rhett give their best examples of great movies that had movies after it that just didn't need to be made...

Movies such as a Halloween sequel... a Crocodile Dundee sequel... a Highlander sequel... A Grumpy Old Men sequel... a Mannequin sequel... and some classic films that have... prequels. Yup. It happens here. 

And topics like... tainting the legacy of "Close Encounter of the Third Kind"... Mike Myers and Willy Wonka... Paul Hogan's tax woes... the future of your franchise when Shannon Tweed gets involved... the lose your virginity 80s genre... the "Put Shia LaBeouf in Everything" era... Edward James Olmos with a Schwarzenegger ISIS flair... Jack Nicholson sequels... the sadness of the prequels...
