Disappointing Summer Blockbusters (and new theme music!)

This is not the usual yadda yadda yadda! Welcome to The Deucecast Movie Picture Show. We have enjoyed the all-over-the-map format of the last 100 episodes, but we are streamlining things! We share a lot of interests, but our favorite is Movies. So, that's what the show will be about. No more entertainment news, no more Demi Levato tweets, no more Music Minute. Our goal is to bring you an entertaining and enlightening conversation about a particular movie-related topic, do it in less time than before, and do it every other week. In the alternating weeks, we'll be even more focused in what we bring you in our "Intermission" (details below...) And yes, Dr. Earl has ramped up our ADHD meds to allow us to be so focused. We hope you enjoy, thank you so much for listening, and let us know what you think!

This Week

In this first episode of our new format (and 101st episode overall), it's Pinky's first time as a regular co-host alongside d$, and Mikey, and Dr. Earl joins us as well. Our topic of big discussion is "Disappointing Summer Blockbusters," or, "those movies we had high hopes for in summers past... films that we wanted to be so good, but ended up being so bad." Like, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen ... Superman III ... Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull ... Speed Racer ... The Last Airbender ... and Green Lantern.  And, according to Dr Earl, The Return of the Jedi?!?! What are some of yours?

Your homework for next week: Watch The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Next week we'll bring you our first "Intermission" episode, where we spend a shorter amount of time discussing a single movie. Most will come from the IMDB Top 250 list, or the AFI Top 100, and be movies most of us haven't ever gotten around to watching. First up: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. Does it hold up? Watch it for yourself and then tune in next week for the discussion. No excuses: find it on Amazon (free to stream for Prime members), at your local library, or maybe, if you Google hard enough, you can find it somewhere else online:


In two weeks:

On the next episode of The Deucecast Movie Picture Show, we feature Hurricane Rhett with the topic of "Movies That No One Likes... But Me".
