It's election season here in 'Merica, and to recognize, Mikey, Pinky, and Dave are talking favorite political films!  And who better to bring in to discuss such movies than the President of the Pretentious Corner, the Witt Stillman fan, the Film Historian, the Terence Malick Apologist himself, the honorable Dr Earl.

First up, a round of The Ryan Phillippe Game, where you have to name all the films of a certain actor like Kurt Russell, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Owen Wilson or Charlize Theron and more.

And then... fave political movies!   People trying to win an election!  Leaders trying to stop a war!  Superheroes trying to stay on the right side of America!  Movies like Lincoln!  Argo!  Wag the Dog! Captain America Civil War!

A great recommendation for the movie "Failsafe" as well, if you can find it, and for "Eye in the Sky", which is now available on Netflix.

So enjoy the list of political movies and tell us your own faves!

DISCLAIMER:  There isn't any talk of the current political climate, nor it's candidates, its merely a list of favorite films involving not just government, but anything where a leadership plays a game of hierarchy for positioning...

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"...

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....??

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
