Episode LXXXVI: Silver Linings Podcast

Its another week, its another show, its another revolving co-host... Hurricane Rhett back in-studio for the first time since November, and we hit the ground running with everything from movies to Demi Lovato...

We kick off the episode by jumping into our weeks in review... we discuss Love at AOL... and the Inauguration

We give Jordana Brewster more attention in 10
minutes than Hollywood has given her in the last
four years
Mikey brings out some horrendous Welsh crap called The Joy Formidable. d$ brings back some amazing Dan Seals, including his duet with Marie Osmond (that's Dan Seal's duet, not d$, by the way)

Reel or Unreal is spooled out for Hurricane Rhett and Mikey to go one on one, while The Big Three takes on Best Screenplay Academy Award winners... discussing movies like The Usual Suspects... Pulp Fiction... Little Miss Sunshine... and Sidney Poiter movies.  Plus, some listener feedback!

Disney News discusses Congress' letter to Walt Disney World concerning rights and privacy (?) and an in-depth discussion of Jordana Brewster's career... and Forest Whitaker too!

Manti Te'o theories abound... and why its irritating to d$ that Megan Fox is (might be?) a Christ Follower and Hugh Jackman isn't. 

In our assigned movies, d$ discusses his viewing of Blue Valentine, while Michael talks about seeing Ahnold in The Last Stand.

Demi Lovato makes a tweet appearance.

And Gary Busey comes back to make another appearance.

Next week... Mikey brings in some musical crap--what's different?  Nothing... d$ starts a two part Valentine's series on the Buried Treasure... Mikey talks about his assigned movie, "One for the Money", and will be excited about it... the Big Three becomes a Big Six, with favorite Oscar Winning Actors and Actresses... that's upcoming on The Deucecast Episode LXXXVII: Pod Miserables

Episode LXXXV: Podcasts of the Southern Wild

Its a very special episode of The Deucecast... no, there are no life lessons to be taught--unless you want to learn how apartheid and Keyser Soze go together--nay, its a special episode because for the first time ever, former co-host Matt joins The Deucecast not from The Noog... but in studio, live!

He left our show as a permanent host waaaaaay back in The Deucecast Episode XXXII: The Podcast for Spock, and has joined us via phone/Skype every now and again, but today, is actually live and in the flesh for a thrilling episode that is so good, it will be possibly one of the few Deucecast episodes worthy of submission to the Daytime Emmys! Congrats guys!

Not sure why Bud Light didn't do a "Real
American Hero" spot on Mr. Drummond.
The guys kick off a fun little tasting with some Bug Juice, or as Mikey puts it, "melted down Otter Pops"... Matt discusses his time away, his move to Missouri, MLK, Jr. Day, celebrating MLK, Jr. with Django Unchained... and becoming a hunter (or an extra from the original Red Dawn)... Mikey dishes on his sick kid... Justin Timberlake new music in Mike's Surprisingly Passable Music Minute... and d$ brings up his Redbox weeklong extravaganza...

We lost a great American hero this week, and The Deucecast pays tribute to one of our own, Conrad Bain, in a deeply moving and personal obituary in The Buried Treasure... and because of Matt's return, we dig up an oldie but a goody, Faux or Show for our game time.  Greg Evigan would be proud.  As would Dack Rambo.

The Big Three was a little more difficult than the guys thought it would be, as the topic of Best Supporting Actress and Actor Oscar winners are brought up and ranked, including classics from Kim Basinger in L.A. Confidential... Cate Blanchett in The Aviator [Blu-ray]... Joe Pesci in GoodFellas... some Inglourious Basterds... and we answer the question--"Who is Keyser Soze?"  A question that is answered many times.... many times... over the podcast.

Matt's back.  Thankfully, he's on our side. Incidentally,
he dropped this outfit in his back yard and hasn't seen it
in two weeks.
Other topics discussed include a bevy of release dates for upcoming Disney films... Machete Kills... a TV premiere date for Under the Dome... Mumblecore films... a thrilling Gary Busey Moment (perhaps the first of many)... Star Wars director chaos... we discuss the Golden Globes and Jodie Foster's ramble... and...

The Return of The Seagal Watch.  (cue drums)

Mikey dishes on his assigned movie, "Juice", and what a sad loss it was when Tupac left us... and we review many other films seen, including "Dredd"... "Zero Dark Thirty"... "The Company Men"... "Looper"... "Beasts of the Southern Wild"... "Moonrise Kingdom"... "The Watch"... and d$'s assigned film, "Hugo".  

And... Demi. 

Next week, d$ reviews his assigned movie, "Blue Valentine", while The Big Three takes on favorite Oscar winning screenplays, both adapted and original... Mikey has more crap for us to suck up and take... and more Disney news, TV news, movie reviews and perhaps... more Busey?   That's all on The Deucecast Episode LXXXVI: Silver Linings Podcast

Episode LXXXIV: Podfall

The Doctor Is In the Hizzy...

Doc Earl joins us in the studio for the first time in a long, long time... and we welcome him back with open arms and blaring microphones!

We open it up with our low key weeks, plus a discussion on the valet (VIP) service at The Magic Kingdom... the upcoming RFID FastPass+ service and all of its complexities... Dr. Earl's trips over the holidays... a possible resurrection of the Star Wars TV Series...

The Music Minute returns with a Timberlake appearance and a Corey Haim tribute band!

Mikey and Dr. Earl go head to head in the IMDb Game, with takes on Bill Murray... John Candy... and of course, a Ruthless People winner!

In the Big Three, we discuss favorite cinematography winners, including The Godfather Trilogy... Inception... Braveheart... and the dude who won an Oscar but has "Monster-in-Law", "21" and "True Lies" on his resume...

Other films discussed include "Jolene"... "Intolerable Cruelty "... and "Skyfall"

Of course, Oscar nominations were released today, and we dive in with favorites, snubs and thoughts. 

And Demi Lovato!!!
