Episode 490: Top Summer Movies 2005-2009

The Summer Series has but a few time periods left as we approach the 2010s... but first, we have to finish out the 2000s -- that being movies released between Memorial Day and Labor Day in each 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009!

And our guest roster continues to shine, as Carnegie Hall icon and Mom of lots Jenn Kaufman joins the show once more. 

First, a new game called DEBUTS debuts, featuring a challenge to discover famous names who made their first appearances in this five year window. 

The, the top five films of that era, including a Donkey Kong doc... My Big Fat Greek Ruins... some Pixar love... a Harry Potter discussion... Julia vs Sandy B... the raunch in films of the time... Studio Ghibli name drops... Isla Fisher, the backup Amy... the fourth Die Hard... and then whether Heath Ledger wins the Oscar in a world in which he lives... and some hot Letterboxd talk...

Episode 489: Top Summer Movies 2000 to 2004



The summer is half over, and the summer series is rounding the corner toward homestretch (that's a baseball metaphor for you folks out there). Mikey and Dave, again sans #TwitterlessDrEarl, take up the mantle of more summer cinema, this time the best from Memorial Day to Labor Day in 2000 to 2004, and the guys bring back Miss Independent himself Jeremy Burgess to the show.

After catching up with The Burgeler (new reality show premiered this Fall on ABC), they play a little 2000s themed Rotten Tomatoes game, with the possible first time mention of "Shark Tale" ever on the podcast (and maybe the first time since the early 2000s anyone has thought of it), then onto the Top Five.

Nic Cage and Costner both make random appearances, with Spielberg films about airports and pre-cognitions also show up. Plus, the lower of the Mission Impossibles, Jamie Foxx and his Collateral, the beginning of the super hero era, Harry Potter shows up, Nicole Kidman's classics, Jay and Silent Bob go after their MoFo movie check, and the Black Pearl.

And Dougray Scott. Or Doogray, as it may be.

As Will Smith would tell us, it's truly summer summer summer time... and once again, it's time to sit back and unwind, especially with our list of summer films from 1995 to 1999!

Episode 485: Top Summer Movies of 1985-89


The heat is on, as Glenn Frey would say -- fitting that it's from Miami Vice, a TV show right in the era that Dave, Mikey, & Dr Earl take on tonight!  The summer films from 1985 thru 1989, any movie that came out from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend in those respective years.

And the lists of "could be in my Top Five" are growing every block of movie years, and so it was important we bring on someone who was in their movie prime as the guys are -- Nick, host of Podcast of The Whills (and the new MOM CU), joins the show for the first time to break it all down and list them all out.

First up, a little chat on what exactly Podcast of the Whills actually is (hint: its from a Star War), then a little Brat Pack guess 'em game -- think you know the 80s movies of Andrew McCarthy, Judd Nelson, Rob Lowe, and Emilio Estevez? Think you know who woo'd Molly Ringwald in "Fresh Horses" or who was the plucky lawyer in "From the Hip"?  Play along, see if you can be the one in the group who dominated.

Then the Top Five Summer Films of 1985 thru 1989 -- some pretention of course... He-Man... Mel Brooks... Elisabeth Shue love... Dottie from Pee Wee love... Joey Pants mourns Ritchie... hot Cyrano de Bergerac talk... "I'll Buy THAT For a Dollar!"... d$'s pick for the best Vietnam movie ever made... and much more in a great discussion about the late 80s classics.

Episode 477: Actors Who Make Movies Better

We have all seen movies that have certain actors show up, and whether consciously or sub-, and we know the movie just got better... or the bad movie just got decent. Or the great movie just got great. Actors that make movies better.

Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl invite in the Spawn of Ryfun, the pride of TyTy, Georgia, Lil G, Garrison Ryfun to discuss those very actors.

First up, a new game called Just Watch, guessing the cast of random movies featured in the app.  Then, a list of the guys who we love to see show up in films, some character actors, and even some "guys we'd watch in anything" names. And none are named Will Patton.

Episode 474: Zack Snyders See This Not That

The Deucecast Movie Show crew has returned after a week off, and they are ready to rumble when it comes to movies.  First up, Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl take a look at the recent Oscar nominations and give their thoughts -- surprises, expectations, snubs, and a few predictions.

Next, a longer discussion on the recent release of the four hour Zack Snyder's Justice League, how it's better, some of the differences, and thoughts on the Josstice League by comparison.

Then, an episode long round of See This Not That, looking at 15 members of the Zack Snyder's Justice League cast and picking for each a movie to "See This" and then a movie to "Not That", from JK Simmons to Robin Wright to Diane Lane to Jason Mamoa (and even a little Jason MaNO-AH). And of course, Dave's girlfriend, Amy Adams.

Sprinkled amongst the listings are this year's Deucie Award nominations - Popcorn Movie, Animated Feature, Drama, Comedy, Acting nods, Director, Picture and all of those.  The 8th annual Deucie Awards commence in just a few weeks.

Finally, the movies for watching, assigned to #TwitterlessButNotDiscordlessDrEarl, for this year's SpirituEarl... films with a religious or Christian bend to the them, movies he will watch and report back on in a few weeks.

Deucecast Classic: Sci Fi with TechnoRetro Dads

It's a busy spring break week for everyone as Mikey is busy eating and #TwitterlessDrEarl is in Long Island testifying at a lint removal procedure gone wrong trial and Dave is out of the state, so rather than trying to get a rushed show together, they guys are taking the week off.

This week, the show pays homage to our good friends over at TechnoRetro Dads, who's own show is ending. This Deucecast Classic is from May 2018, episode 327.  Enjoy the old school vibe, and here are the original show notes from that episode:

It's a couple of guys who keep their heads in the clouds and gaze at the stars, so it's only fitting that Dave and Mikey discuss Fantasy and Science Fiction films. But since #Twitterless Dr Earl can't be found (he's doing a lint removal procedure from the naval of poor kids in Long Island), who better to invite onto the show than the TechnoRetro Dads  themselves, Shazbazzar and Jedi Shuuuuuuuuaaaaahhhhhh....

And the gang jumps right in, counting off their lists of what they consider to be their favorite fantasy/sci-fi films of this century... that's really anything released on January 1st, 2000, until... well, you know, today. Or the day of the recording, anyway.

The TRD's also give their take on "Ready Player One" before diving into the Top Ten, then the guys discuss at length -- and at depth -- the legacy and their adoration of films like "Children of Men" and the newest "Star Trek" and newer "Star Wars" films and Shaz defends "John Carter" while Dave defends "Lady in the Water".

Its a great two hours of sci fi fantasy fun and movie love!
