Episode 485: Top Summer Movies of 1985-89


The heat is on, as Glenn Frey would say -- fitting that it's from Miami Vice, a TV show right in the era that Dave, Mikey, & Dr Earl take on tonight!  The summer films from 1985 thru 1989, any movie that came out from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend in those respective years.

And the lists of "could be in my Top Five" are growing every block of movie years, and so it was important we bring on someone who was in their movie prime as the guys are -- Nick, host of Podcast of The Whills (and the new MOM CU), joins the show for the first time to break it all down and list them all out.

First up, a little chat on what exactly Podcast of the Whills actually is (hint: its from a Star War), then a little Brat Pack guess 'em game -- think you know the 80s movies of Andrew McCarthy, Judd Nelson, Rob Lowe, and Emilio Estevez? Think you know who woo'd Molly Ringwald in "Fresh Horses" or who was the plucky lawyer in "From the Hip"?  Play along, see if you can be the one in the group who dominated.

Then the Top Five Summer Films of 1985 thru 1989 -- some pretention of course... He-Man... Mel Brooks... Elisabeth Shue love... Dottie from Pee Wee love... Joey Pants mourns Ritchie... hot Cyrano de Bergerac talk... "I'll Buy THAT For a Dollar!"... d$'s pick for the best Vietnam movie ever made... and much more in a great discussion about the late 80s classics.

Welcome back to Part 2 of the Summer Series -- last week, we ranked the summer movies of the 70s... this week, we jumped to the first half of the ME Decade -- 1980 to 1984!

Indiana Jones and Elliott and Kermit and Carol Anne and WOLVERINE and Shall We Play a Game and on and on and on... we've all got a list with a dozen or more names on it, and because the task is so daunting, what better way to tackle it than to bring on a podcasting legend and friend of the show SHAZBAZZAR!! 

We talk about where Shaz has been spending his time since the end of TechnoRetro Dads... avoiding Vic's Damone... playing a little IMDB Game... love of Marc Singer... the greatest fan film ever made... the 80s teens propensity to create world destroying technology... and so, so much more.

Episode 474: Zack Snyders See This Not That

The Deucecast Movie Show crew has returned after a week off, and they are ready to rumble when it comes to movies.  First up, Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl take a look at the recent Oscar nominations and give their thoughts -- surprises, expectations, snubs, and a few predictions.

Then, an episode long round of See This Not That, looking at 15 members of the Zack Snyder's Justice League cast and picking for each a movie to "See This" and then a movie to "Not That", from JK Simmons to Robin Wright to Diane Lane to Jason Mamoa (and even a little Jason MaNO-AH).

Deucecast Classic: Sci Fi with TechnoRetro Dads

It's a busy spring break week for everyone as Mikey is busy eating and #TwitterlessDrEarl is in Long Island testifying at a lint removal procedure gone wrong trial and Dave is out of the state, so rather than trying to get a rushed show together, they guys are taking the week off.

This week, the show pays homage to our good friends over at TechnoRetro Dads, who's own show is ending. This Deucecast Classic is from May 2018, episode 327.  Enjoy the old school vibe, and here are the original show notes from that episode:

It's a couple of guys who keep their heads in the clouds and gaze at the stars, so it's only fitting that Dave and Mikey discuss Fantasy and Science Fiction films. But since #Twitterless Dr Earl can't be found (he's doing a lint removal procedure from the naval of poor kids in Long Island), who better to invite onto the show than the TechnoRetro Dads  themselves, Shazbazzar and Jedi Shuuuuuuuuaaaaahhhhhh....

And the gang jumps right in, counting off their lists of what they consider to be their favorite fantasy/sci-fi films of this century... that's really anything released on January 1st, 2000, until... well, you know, today. Or the day of the recording, anyway.

The TRD's also give their take on "Ready Player One" before diving into the Top Ten, then the guys discuss at length -- and at depth -- the legacy and their adoration of films like "Children of Men" and the newest "Star Trek" and newer "Star Wars" films and Shaz defends "John Carter" while Dave defends "Lady in the Water".

Its a great two hours of sci fi fantasy fun and movie love!

Episode 473: American Classics

In the latest The Deucecast Movie Show, the guys take a look at American classics. It's a broad definition, but Dave, Mikey, and #TwitterlessDrEarl apply their movie mastery to make it happen.

Finally, a top five list of American Classics... movies made in our country, with a solid American cast, movies that define a little America in every scene.
