Episode 464: 2021 Surprise and Delights

The Deucecast Movie Show strives to be an escape and the guys do their best this week to shut out the world for an hour and give you some movie chatter... and this time, it's all about being surprised, delighted, or in some cases, both.

Movies that were thought to be a little silly, or movies approached with apprehension because "Surely, this movie can't be any good?" and yet, IT WAS! 

First up, some January Birthday Movies, giving you the five, ten, twenty more year anniversaries of films you've heard of... and some you haven't. Cause that The Way Back ain't got no Affleck in it.

A little round of January Movie Rotten Tomatoes, with a Christian Slater triple play, and then the top five... the films that Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl watched and were happy to report were actually pretty good.

It's a fun episode, revisiting the good times in front of a screen of some sort... and the kickoff to the annual Year End Best Episodes!

For the 5th year in a row, the final episode of the year for The Deucecast Movie Show is the Lumps of Coal episode... the movies that... well, weren't the best or the favorites of Mikey, Dave, or #TwitterlessDrEarl.

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.
