Episode 465: The Not 2020 Top Ten

The review of 2020 films and pop culture continues, as it's time for the first of a couple of Top Ten Lists. In this one, Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl talk about the films that were NOT from 2020, but from all years previous.

It's the Top 10 of NOT 2020, ranking the best films seen that didn't come out in the last 12 months. And to add to the group, The Offspring of the Pride of Stone Mountain South Georgia, Lil G, Garrison Ryfun joins the show to take his rightful place as #DrEarl's Pretentawan Learner.

Several foreign films make the list as the guys get bougee... lots of old films on the list, as the crew pretends to be important... and of course, everyone cuts Footloose.  A little Korean cinema talk... some Lily James news... Armie Hammer did what?... Mikey's Studio Ghibli kick... Lil G's fave zombie movie... Dave's obsession with a dead reporter... #DrEarl's Buckley love...

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!

Episode 462: 2020 Lumps of Coal

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.

A top five of films -- or in some cases, production teams or Hollywood battles -- that didn't come anywhere near the crew's favorite films seen in 2020.  Including Vin's lack of range... a Scott Baio film that would never pass in this century... another Disney franchise failure... Nic Cage's lack of karate skills... John Turturro's lack of bowling scenes... and much more.

Plus, a quick discussion on the CBS Mini-Series The Stand and a few words about Wonder Woman 1984

Episode 461: Christmas Movie Gifts 2020

If you listen to the episode, you may recognize the opening theme, the best time of the year, when the Deucecast Movie Show plays the official Christmas theme of the show.  It truly is a Marshmallow World.

Dave, Mikey, and #TwitterlessDrEarl are here once again to give out their annual Christmas gifts to the stars, and joining the show for the first time in the Christmas season, it's Spawn of Ryfun, Lil G himself Garrison Ryfun.

First up, Birthday movies, with everything from Popeye to a previous Star War edition, then Garrison gives a little Christmas episode history of the Deucecast Movie Show (he has notes!)

Then the guys begin to give out the gifts!  Chris Nolan has a present to open.  The tiny town of New Albanwick has a gift. AMC will get something under the tree. And for the first time, someone in the group gives their gifts to the others during the Top Five itself.

 It's another week closer to Christmas, as the Deucecast crew -- Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessButNotDiscordDrEarl -- get ready for the big visit from Santa... 

But first, out of nowhere, Disney dropped an almost four hour meeting on everyone last week called Disney Investor Day, and out of that came dozens of titles, series, movies, and projects upcoming in the next few years.  So who better to break it all down for you than these guys, plus Friend of the Show Upon a Star Jenn, direct from Amish Country.

Marvel shows and movies... Star Wars new series, spin-offs and films... Pixar's new projects and films coming up... Disney Animation's 59th and 60th films in Disney canon, plus their new animated series and projects...

Plus, chatting about The Mandalorian... the movie A Ghost Story... and all the other randomness that comes with nerddom.

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.

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...
