Movies Made into TV Series

On this episode of The Deucecast Movie Picture Show... Mikey, Pinky & d$ once again join forces to fight the evils of non-movie watching, to promote the good of movie watching, and to discuss lots and lots of movies watched.

In ReFlicktions, bringing up the films seen in the last two weeks, the guys hit a number of titles, including "View From the Top"... "Mud"... "CLUE"... "The Evil Dead", the original.... "The World's End"... "Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams"... and a bunch of indy films that Mikey loved, like "Muscle Shoals" and "Zero Charisma".

The topic today included movies that were turned into television shows, like "Ferris Bueller"... "The Real Ghostbusters"... a few of the 403 "Stargate" reiterations... and d$'s love of "Muppet Babies".  Some tackled it from the angle of "good movies that were turned into good and bad shows", and we also hit the side of "eh movies turned into good tv shows", like "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", to which Pinky had no idea that it was, in fact, a movie first.

The guys also touch on the movies that were assigned to them to see, including "Side Effects"... "Muriel's Wedding"... and an odd film that Pinky will put into his DVD collection from here on out.

The Ryan Phillippe Game returns, with Mikey, d$ and Pinky battling it out as to who can name the most films of a given actor, and in a new twist on "See This, Not That", names and topics are tossed out at random via the "Magic Movie Wheel".

Finally, d$ ends the show on a personal note, with a non-movie related topic, but is still good to hear...

Next go round... the guys take on "Football Themed Films" for the now-here football season... and don't forget next week's Intermission, where we discuss at length the Audrey Hepburn classic, "Sabrina"
