Episode 267: The Mount Rushmore of That Girls

The Deuce Guys Dave, Mikey and Pinky have discussed their own personal Mount Rushmore of Actors (Ep 219)... Actresses (Ep 227)... Directors (Ep 241) and That Guys (Ep 250)... and to continue the series, they now turn their attention to the character actors of the fairer kind, the Mount Rushmore of That Girls!

The names you may or may not know of those lovely actresses who you see and say, "Oh, that's that girl who was in '13 Going on 30'!" or "That's that girl who was in 'The Fighter'!" or "That girl is Stifler's Mom!"

See if you can remember the choices we make... Hope Davis!  John Cusack's sister!  Cobie Smulders!  And after this year's Oscars, Dave's Marisa Tomei comment is even more prescient!

Episode 259: The (Not) 2016 Top Ten

The year of 2016 produced some great films, but there were many seen by Mikey, Dave and Pinky that they considered great as well.  So while the guys are still finishing up their 2016 Best Of lists, they also wanted to mention the other films not in 2016 that were seen in 2016 but weren't from 2016, but were seen in 2016.  Capeche?  Good.

And back to the show a big warm welcome goes to Remodeling Clay Shaver, host of the Remodeling Clay podcast (find on iTunes, drops every Thursday!), as he is here to give his list as well.

Birthday movies proves what a dearth of good films are out in January, and a round of Denzel shows how tough James Franco and Seth Rogen films can be.

Then, the Not 2016 Top Ten, with final reviews and more love lavished on Brie Larson for her turn as a captured mother... on Kurt Russell for fighting off the cannibals... for Ben Stiller in a Baumbach underrated film... on Phillip Seymour Hoffman for bedding Marisa Tomei... on Ben Affleck for the heists and the Amy-chasing... and so much more.

Episode 258: 2016's Lumps of Coal

Throughout the year, there are good movies, there are bad movies, and there are movies that Dave, Mikey and Pinky watch that are just terrible.  So as the last of the Christmas themed episodes, the trio give their worst films of the year they've seen.

A great round of The Denzel Game kicks off the episode, as they try to come up with who starred in "Slow West"... Pinky mentions the words "Midnight Meat Train"... Who is Marion Cotillard?... and what exactly is that "Female baseball movie" called??

And then... the worst films of 2016. The films that just hurt the eyes that watched them and melded the brains that absorbed them.  Movies like "Transporter: ReFueled" or "Goya's Ghost" or the Village People bio pic, "Can't Stop the Music".

Turkeys that starred the normally beloved Nat Portman or Bill Murray or Marisa Tomei or Larry the Cable Guy...

And how can you not love a movie with Bugs Bunny AND Michael Jordan?  Dave tells you how.

What animated movie almost makes Mikey angry?   And finally... Pootie Tang.

Episode 257: 2016's Christmas Gifts to the Stars

Another year is winding down, and the generosity of Mikey, Pinky, Dave and guest Remodling Clay Shaver knows no ending.

It's the annual episode where the hosts of the show (and guests) give out Christmas gifts to the celebrities and movie stars who need a little Christmas cheer.

First up, Remodeling Clay, who's words will discount or qualify the validity of a song when it comes to the "Christmas" label, gives his take on a classic by The Eagles.

The presents flow readily... gifts for Amy Adams... Bradley Cooper... Brendan Fraser... Kevin Hart... the cast of Ice Age... Marvel... John Cena... M Night Shymalan... even Vanessa Hudgens... and someone gives a gift to themselves, involving Dermot Mulrooney.  Wait, Dylan McDermont. Wait, Dermot McDermot. Um... Dylan Muldermot?  Well, crap. You know that guy.

And does James Cameron need an epiphany? Should Crackle have the ability to make Oscar nominated films?  Can there be a "no fly" list for reboots?  Find out in this ep (spoiler: The answer is Yes to all three)

Thanks for a great year, thanks for listening, subscribing and being a Deucecast Movie Show Fan!!
