Episode 193: October Reflicktions

Welcome back to another fine episode of The Deucecast Movie Show, as we dive into a monthly pile of movies that we've seen... we call it Reflicktions, and d$, Mikey & Pinky are once again joined by the honorable Dr. Earl to talk about what we've seen.

When Vanessa Hudgens puts her mind to it, this girl can act her fool tail off.
Birthday movies come up first, as we toss out titles turning everything from 5 years old to 35 years old ("Oh God! Book II") and then we jump into our list of films... September was a slow month for releases, so there are several old films as well as brand new ones and even some festival indie films that you may not have heard of...

Here you'll find out what movie starred Kristen Stewart that Pinky said, "I didn't hater her in this"... Dr Earl discovered It Follows doesn't follow... the horrible wasting of a brilliant cast in Aloha... Reese Witherspoon's mistakes... one of the most pointless movies ever made, according to Mikey... the movie that is described as "like picking a scab"... the random choices of Kristen Wiig... The Linda Cardinelli-assance... when the heck is Masterminds coming out?... the career of Rory Cochran (Slater from Dazed & Confused) and finally, WTF is going on with Jared Leto in Mr Nobody???

Plus... Vanessa Hudgens' Academy Award Moment.  Yes, I just said that.

And the Top Five of the Year around the room, and our movie assignments, plus a review of Mike's movie for MikeTober.

Episode 192: Breakthrough Roles

Back and awesome, d$, Mikey & Pinky join together at The Deucecast Studios Central, joined by movie historian & Terrence Malick Apologist the honorable Doctor Earl, and the gang is here to discuss favorite "Breakthrough" roles.

First, a little round of the newest movie game sensation that's sweeping the nation... or the studios anyway... Chronology.  Put the movies in order and you win the game... bad Sandler! Bad King! Overly long Costner flicks!  And even Pinky's Potables!

Then, a discussion of favorite first big roles in movies... not necessarily the first roles, but the first big roles.  And along with movie discussions come movie controversies... as in... if you've never heard of a Nicole Kidman movie, could it be consider a breakout role?  Is Bob Falfa really Harry Ford's first big role, or just a stepping stone to Star Wars?  Do we like fat Jonah Hill or Skinny Jonah Hill?  Do we really need both Margot Robbie AND Rosamund Pike?   Also... early Kate Winslet... early Michael Keaton... early Audrey Hepburn... and much, much more.

Pretty in Pink takes on the movie Fletch, and find out if Pinky loved, liked, meh, disliked or hated this Chevy Chase classic... and finally...

Miketober is here!  Our 2nd Annual MikeTober Movie Fest commences, as Mikey picks up his horror movie assignments for the month of October.  Dr Earl gives his picks, along with friends of the show Shaz & Shua and Remodeling Clay Shaver, as well as Pinky and d$'s horror choices for Mikey's viewing terror.

Episode 191: Top 100... 60 to 51

Another entry into the Top 100 Series, as we reach the 1/2 way point into our year long countdown of the  top 100 films of all time.

Not the "best films", obviously, as you likely wouldn't see "While You Were Sleeping" on any "Greatest Films Ever" list... but its on d$'s list.  So is a great DeNiro/Grodin 80s classic, a Stephen King novella turned movie and why in the world is there a clip featuring Sally Field and Olympia Dukakis?  Get ready for the Magnolias.

Pinky reels out his a favorite Chris Nolan movie, an Emma Stone modern classic and takes the show to Monstropolis.

Mikey discusses one of his favorite Kevin Smith films, a John Cusack movie right on point, and his affinity for Bruce Campbell.   All in all, 30 films discussed, and the countdown rolls on!

Even a few controversial choices are tossed in... like... Rose from "Titanic".  Argue away.

Later, the episode finds it's way into Harry Potter lore, where the gang discusses their first venture into Potterworld, some of the differences in the movies and books, characters that were cast correctly--and miscast--and yes, d$ makes a case for Alan Rickman being wrongly cast...

Episode 188: Independence Days

The 188th reiteration of The Deucecast Movie Show commences now!  Though Mikey, Pinky & d$ fancy themselves to be more mainstream, they do like a good indie film every now and then... problem is, more and more films are actually independent and not from a major studio...

What better way to wade through the madness than to call upon Terrance Malick fan and film historian Dr Earl AND Friend of the Show and Boyhood Apologist Jeremy Burgess!

Birthday movies kick off the show, as "Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole" is mentioned for one of the few times ever... five years old, I tell you!

Indie films is the topic, and among our favorite independent films tossed out are classics like Clerks and Memento and The Blair Witch and yes... a romantic comedy about Greek love, from executive producer Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson.

Then, America's favorite classic film review, Pretty in Pink, as Young Pinky gives his review of the football masterpiece, "Necessary Roughness" with Scott Bakula and Robert Loggia... and yes, Kathy Ireland. In her prime.

Episode 187: The Fall Movie Preview + Sidewalk Film Fest

Welcome back to The Deucecast Movie Show where this time, we take on the Fall Movies... previews, discussions, what to watch, what to skip and what we are looking forward too.

Also joining the guys in studio is Terrence Malick Apologist and Film Historian Dr Earl, and friend of the show and Boyhood Apologist Jeremy Burgess, who also gives the rundown on the annual Sidewalk Moving Picture Show Film Festival of Films and Movies and Cinematic Experiences That you Only Can Get from Flicker Shows.  (that title may not be exact)

But first... a BRAND NEW GAME!!!  It's called CHRONOLOGY... you have to listen to find out what it is, but just know it does have great categories like "Oops I Crapped My Pants", "The Revenge of Seth" and "Potent Potables"

The Sidewalk Preview touches on some great up and coming films like "Raiders" and "Western", of which Jeremy gives reviews on, plus a quick overview of Jeremy's short film "Dead Saturday" with Oscar nominee Eric Roberts.

Then, the Fall Movie Preview kicks in, taking you from September thru November.  Discussions on the Anne Hathaway/Robert DeNiro comedy "The Intern", plus Pinky wishing for "Gangster DeNiro" to return... "Everest" with Josh Brolin, Keira Knightley and Eric Bana, and how its IMAX Candy... "The Walk" with JoGo Levitt, and his high wire act... Sandy Bullock in "Our Brand in Crisis" and the space epic "The Martian"... Pixar's latest, Julianne Moore's new movie, and even some Oscar bait.

Plus... M Night Shymalan's new film, "The Visit".  And whether it looks like it might be decent or another dumpster fire.  The theory that "a lot of people die" in The Hunger Games Park

And Jeremy's obsession with "Jem & the Holograms" is passed over quickly.  Okay, not really an obsession.  Maybe just a jab.

Oh, and why is Daniel Radcliffe this generation's Mark Hamill?
