Harrison Ford, Morgan Freeman, Michael Douglas, Charlize Theron, Bill Murray, Michael Keaton, and Chris Rock all get the L/L/H/HL treatment

Movies from DC... The Muppets... horror comedies and Tarantino joints... Pixar failures... and men of Mystery.  Along the way, some great chatter on the rising of the DC Cinematic Universe... the movie that is SOLO: A Star Wars Story... and how some animated films get an undeserved bad rap... plus, #TwitterlessButNotDiscordlessDrEarl's corner turn on a Christmas classic, Mikey's dawn of justice and d$'s getting out.

Episode 453: Halloween Guilty Pleasures

Happy Halloween to all the movie lovers and scaryphiles out there from The Deucecast Crew!  Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl serve up their favorite Halloween Guilty Pleasures.  The movies that... well, at least for Mikey and Dave... are not really scary, are sort of hokey, maybe kinda stupid, but oh so much fun anyway. 

 And of course, in the pretentious corner, #TwitterlessButNotDiscordlessDrEarl can't bring himself to talk about guilty pleasures, so somehow, his movies are actually good. 

First up, Mikey gives a quick review of Liam Neeson's new flick "Honest Thief", then Dave laments the loss of a small college town theater.

Then a new game called SUBTITLES, guessing the terrible franchises that the even more terrible sequels are named, followed by the aforementioned the Guilty Pleasures list, and then, the 7th iteration of MikeTober, where Mikey has watched and gives reviews on horror flicks assigned by Lil G (some Korean joint) and #TwitterlessButNotDiscordlessDrEarl (some 70s joint) and Burgess (some 90s joint) and Scott Ryfun (some Roadkill joint) and a masterpiece of old cinema assigned by Dave.

DCMS Classic: Christmas Movie Guilty Pleasures

While Mikey is saving the world, Dave is saving the magic, and #TwitterlessDrEarl is saving a life like a Fray song, the gang decided it would be easier to repost a classic episode this week. This time, it hails from December 2016, episode 255, with Friend of the Show Jennifer Kaufman on board.

Here are the main show notes from that episode:

The guys welcome in Friend of the Show and Disney Media Mogul Jennifer Kaufman to talk all about their favorite guilty pleasures full of cheer!

First up, birthday movies!  2001 was a huge year, apparently, and "The Good, the Bad & the Ugly" is how old??

Then a little Box Office Mojo, figuring out what the top domestic box office movies are for the year 2016.

And then, the Christmas movies that aren't good... but are beloved.  Movies with Santa and Katie Heigl and The Ref and Vince Vaughn and Rankin & Bass and the difference in Arthur and Arthur and more bad Nic Cage and reindeer and Reindeer Games...

And... Care Bears.  So much Care Bears talk...

Episode 449: Viva la Deucecast

Then, the guys pick their fave films starring those in the Mexican community... a Hispanic cast... a plot revolving around Mexican scenery... anything that relates to our neighbors to the South!

Episode 446: Tomato Disparities and Honoring Chadwick Boseman

 As 2020 rolls on, the hits keep on coming, and The Deucecast Crew -- Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessButNotDiscordlessDr Earl just roll with them.

First, a quick look at "New Mutants" and the reopening of theaters.  Then, the guys address the gut punch that happened over the weekend... the death of Chadwick Boseman.

Discovering the news from a tweet, the guys talk about the untimely passing of Boseman, and his great movie roles and legacy. 

Finally, it what seems like something not nearly important, yet entertaining, the guys give their top five movies with the largest gap between critics score and audience score on Rotten Tomatoes... familiar topics like Kevin Smith movies to less critically acclaimed, yet audience fave films from Alex Kendrick.  #TwitterlessButNotDiscordlessDrEarl even expresses his admiration for David Spade, while Dave loves The Rock wielding a 2x4, and Mikey quotes Chaucer...

Stick around for one final Chadwick Boseman nod.

Because America rules, it's another episode of The Deucecast Movie Show!  Last week, Dave, Mikey, and #TwitterlessDrEarl, with special guest Lil G Ryfun, the pride of South TyTy Georgia, gave their lists of the most patriotic roles in movies... and a funny thing happened -- they all seemed to be dudes.

So what better way to reconcile this blunder than to do an all female list of patriotic roles, which, like last week, is really just a list of awesome American characters in films that all the guys decided to dub "patriotic", but #Merica anyway.

First up, though, a rousing game of Ryan Phillippe, with everyone from Sigourney Weaver to one Christopher Pratt being called out.

Then, the list, which includes Mikey's total misunderstanding (and defense of Padme)... #TwitterlessDrEarl goes old school again... who won what award in Hidden Figures and The Help... Lil G Ryfun squeezes in a Nolan... Emily Blunt gets double action... an Amy Adams discussion and it's not from d$... and much more.
