Episode 152 -- The Battle of the Five ReFlicktions

Happy New Year!  Hope your Christmas was wonderful, and what better way to end your holiday season than to check our review show, also called "ReFlicktions", as we ReFlickt on the films we've watched in the last few weeks.

It's December, so our movie watching slowed down considerably, but we spend a little more time both on older favorites and current blockbusters...  in this episode, we cover...

Wet Hot American Summer... two of us love this movie, one of us just doesn't get it...

Happy Christmas... we call out Anna Kendrick again to come on our show

Varsity Blues... Pinky is introduced to the James Van der Beek classic, and whipped cream.

The Theory of Everything... stick around for my incredibly authentic Steven Hawking impersonation and for Mikey's surprise at what he himself thinks about the movie.

Horrible Bosses 2... we see it so you don't have to.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay: Part 2: Live Die Repeat: Mockingjay"... it's the one film that I was able to watch, and I'll tell you how good it is.

Exodus: Gods & Kings"... Mikey uses three phrases for this film--"Ridiculous", "Excessodus" and "Random Casting", and then Pinky shares his love for the movie.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies: Live Die Repeat... In a reversal of roles, Pinky expresses his displeasure for this epic, while Mikey actually is decently satisfied.  Oh, and somehow, we relate Evangeline Lilly to Alec Baldwin.  Somehow.

Wild... Mikey tells us of Reese Witherspoon's epic turn that might make her an two time Oscar winner.

Then, all three of us give our favorite films (so far) of 2014, plus our movie assignments which include the classic Dark Crystal, the immortal Vince Vaughn/Travolta epic Domestic Disturbance and the indie film In Your Eyes.

And next week, its the winter movie preview!  Join us as we let you know what's upcoming this January, February and March... pay attention and you'll know what movies you'll want to see, and what to avoid! -- d$

Episode 151 -- Merry Deuce Christmas!!!

It's Christmas time, Christmas time is here!  Unfortunately, no time for a Christmas vacation... however, you can sit back for a spell and listen to your favorite movie dudes discuss their (and your) favorite Christmas films!


First, we let you know what movies are celebrating their milestone birthdays this month... you won't believe how old "Dumb & Dumber" and "Beverly Hills Cop" are.  And find out what legendary film franchise got it's first film released this month in 1979.


We explore "Home Alone" and it's legacy, then toss around the Rotten Tomatoes in a Christmas edition. 


Mikey, Pinky & Dave then count down their favorite Christmas films of all time, including classics like "The Muppet Christmas Carol"... "It's a Wonderful Life"... "Scrooged"... and "White Christmas".  Dave and Pinky give major love to "A Christmas Story", while Mikey gives major hate to it--he's a known Ralphie Hater, by the way.


Plus, proper attention is shown to the underrated "Four Christmases", Mikey gushes about "Ernest Saves Christmas" and Pinky goes crazy for "Jingle All the Way"... and of course, Dave still loves the ABC TV movie "The Night They Saved Christmas".


And find out what they chose back in 2011, during the first list of Christmas favorites as revealed in "The Deucecast Episode XXXVII: A Very Wookiee Christmas."


The payoff on the horrid Christmas movies that were assigned a few episodes ago is in this episode.  Hear the reviews on such holiday masterpieces as "Elf Bowling the Movie: The Great North Pole Elf Strike"... "Bratz Babies Save Christmas"... "The Nativity 2: Danger in the Manger"... and the coup de gras, "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians".  Whew. 


Finally, everyone's favorite movie show segment, Pretty in Pink.  Will the Alec Baldwin/Kevin Spacey/Al Pacino David Mamet directed epic "Glengarry Glen Ross" get top honors?  Or be in the "hated it" column"?  Find out tonight.

Then, a great discussion on the Sony hack and the fervor over "The Interview" cancellation is broken up by... well, as Pinky will put it, some very sensitive mics and some wind.  It's a first for The Deucecast Movie Show and proof that life happens anytime and anywhere.


Next week!  Our ReFlicktions Show for December is a bit shorter, but still we spend much time on "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies"... "The Theory of Everything"... "Exodus Gods & Kings" and several more recent flicks.  And coming up soon, our Winter Movie Preview, and our Top Ten Not-2014 Films of 2014!

Episode 150 -- Intermission: White Christmas

If you are dreaming of a Deucecast Christmas, with visions of Elf Mikey and Reindeer Dave and Sugarplum Pinky (Sugarpinky?) dancing through your heads, this is totally the Intermission for you!

The guys take on the 50s classic White Christmas, as Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye survive the war, go on tour with their dancing routine, meet up with Vera Ellen and Rosemary Clooney, and follow them to the Christmas paradise of Vermont. Entertainers all, it's time to do a benefit to raise money, fall in love, sing some memorable tunes and dance some memorable dances.

Answers to the burning questions that have been weighing on your hearts... is this a sequel to "Holiday Inn"? Who is that guy in the Bugs Bunny cartoons? And who liked it more (and less) than they thought they would?   Plus, we give a rundown of the main cast, who they are and what became of them...

And in a twist, the discussion takes a dive into the state of "musicals" in Hollywood, and why we fear the medium might be dying a slow death... sad trombone sound here.

It's a movie that really only has Christmas scenes in select parts of the movies, but is considered a Christmas classic to be cherished forever.


(Next week, on The Deucecast Movie Show Episode 151... The Deucecast Christmas Party, starring Mikey and Dave, with Pinky reporting in from a remote location in the woods somewhere!   Our favorite Christmas films (including... Jaclyn Smith?!), the report on the terrible holiday films we were forced to watch and more fun and frivolity!)

Tuesday, December 9, 2014

Episode 149 -- Intermission: Jaws

Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the podcast... ba-dum... ba-dum... ba-dum... ba-dum ba-dum ba-dum badumbadumbadumbadum.... you'll recognize the music and recognize the terror of the ocean as The Deucecast Movie Show takes on the classic film "Jaws" from 1975.


The guys discuss the making of the film indepth, including how Richard Dreyfuss begged for the part of Hooper... the consideration of Jeff Bridges and others for the part... the monetary success of the movie itself... what the author of the book it was based on had to say about sharks today... the connection to the 2010 movie "Piranha 3D"... Pinky waxing poetic by saying "What scares you the most is what you cannot see"... Mikey using the word "titular"... and so much more trivia, fun and frivolity.


Plus, a quick reference to Jaws 2, Jaws 3D and Jaws: The Revenge--which one does Dave consider to be in his Bottom 10 Movies of All Time.


The are joined in the studio by friend of the show Drew and Brother of the Predator Sean Hall, and their take on Jaws.  And Superman III, for some reason.


Join us next week for The Deucecast Movie Show Episode 150, a special Christmas intermission when we take on the classic "White Christmas"!

Once a month, the Deucecast Movie Show guys do a round up of all the movies seen since the last time they did a round up of all the movies they had seen... and it's time for your December ReFlicktions!

Pinky, Mikey and Dave discuss the heavy vehicles, like tanks in "Fury" and trains in "Snowpiercer"... disasters like volcanoes in "Pompeii" and Johnny Depp's career in "Transcendence"... the violence of Keanu Reeves, as in "John Wick"... the creepiness of Jake Gyllenhaal in "Night Crawler"... and how bad can a "Dumb & Dumber To" really be?

The latest films of Bill Murray ("St Vincents")... Ice Cube ("Ride Along")... Adam Sandler ("Blended")... the worthiness of "Birdman" and how Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Emma Stone and the entire cast should get tons of love during award season... and so much more are in this month's ReFlicktions, plus, the guys have themselves a quick Roman Polanski discussion, a racial discussion and talk about some crap called "Babadook"

"Interstellar" is also in for a major breakdown, and you'll know whether you should see it or not... same with "Big Hero 6" and two of the three hosts take on "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1".

Plus, answer that burning question that you are dying to have answered... what did Pinky really think of the John Candy hidden gem "Summer Rental" (and how badly will Dave drool over his love for '86 Kerri Green?)

Episode 147 -- Happy DeuceGiving!

Oh, but Peter Jackson did... he definitely did.
It's an annual tradition, when we at The Deucecast Movie Picture Show, give thanks for the things in the movies that we love, appreciation for theaters we enjoy, actors we cheer for and trends we follow... and by "annual tradition", we mean we did it a few years ago and wanted to do it again...

...so an annual tradition is born... again... we call it DeuceGiving!!

We are honored, first, as Shaz and Jedi Shua from The TechnoRetro Dads podcast calls in and enjoys an easy round of Simple Star Wars Trivia, a game that we hadn't played in quite a while, but Mikey was excited to get another crack at, while P!nky did it for the first time.  So, if nothing else, Shaz & Shua make this episode worth it!

Then, we tell the world what we are truly thankful for in the movie universe, everything from Marvel movies to Amy Adams (who d$ is in love with) to the finality of Hobbit movies... its a celebration of appreciation for theatrical awesomeness.

 A new way to assign movies just for this Christmas time, as we draw out of a hat the titles of the 6 worst Christmas movies we could find on Netflix... find out who is forced to see Santa Claus vs The Martians and who will be forced to watch some randomness subtitled Danger in the Manger.   And that might be the cream of the crop...

Finally, a rousing discussion of Hollywood awards, and whether we feel that "message movies" with perhaps decent performances is more highly regarded than a "original film" with great performances... and be surprised by the trends over the last few years, especially in Best Actress. 

Join us next week as well when we do our monthly ReFlicktions, covering everything from "Birdman" to "Interstellar" to "Big Hero 6" to the problem with Ice Cube in "Ride Along"--and find out what Pinky truly thought about his latest Pretty in Pink assignment...

Episode 146 -- The Mouse Will Be With You... Always

On a somewhat different note, we take you back to the show's appearance at The Alabama Phoenix Festival in May of 2014, where The Deucecast Movie Show co-host Dave is joined by local comic book show owner and Marvel of a man in his own right, Stan Daniel, as they spend and hour discussing Star Wars, Disney and the mash-up of the two.

Dave and Stan discuss various topics about what it means for the future of Star Wars since Disney has purchased the property... the possibility of a 5th theme park... Star Wars Weekends... dining with Darth Vader... the memories of the speederbike in Hollywood Studios... and so much more.

There are also questions to be fielded on everything from "Will Leia be a real Disney princess?" to "What does the merchandising look like?" and yes, we also dive into a Harry Potter comparison.

Plus, predictions for the future of the Disney/Star Wars partnership (since this episode was recorded six months ago, you'll hear a few misses... and several predictions that were dead on!) 

Mikey and Pinky are there too, jumping in with their own conversations, questions and thoughts, and are joined by various Friend of the Show voices of Hurricane Rhett and our buddy Wookiee.

Sure, this episode isn't directly about movies, but it is a one hour geekfest on two things that the guys on the show love.

Coming next week... our annual DeuceGiving Episode, as we give you what we are thankful for in the movie world!   Download and listen to Ep 146 coming next week!

Episode 145 -- The Deucecast Intermission: The Godfather Part II

Mikey, P!nky and d$ jump back into The Godfather Saga by taking on what is arguably the better of the first two (and definitely better than the third... then again, d$ contends that Damon Wayan's Mo' Money is better than the third Godfather III)... and again, we are joined up by Classic Movie Historian and Terence Malick Apologist, the Honorable Doctor Earl. 

...It's the Intermission Episode with the full discussion on the classic The Godfather Part II.  From 1974, the film centers on dueling story lines... first, the ascent of power of Michael Corleone, and his submerging into the darkness that is the mafia in the 1950s... next, we see the early days of the future "don", that being Vito Corleone (Marlon Brando in the first film).

An Academy Award winner for best picture, and starring Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro, Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton, Talia Shire, join the guys as they dissect the movie, talk about favorite scenes, the nuances and the movie as a whole... not from some snotty critics point of view, but from a FAN's point of view!


Also, join on us Episode 146, when d$ and local comic book shop owner and geek extraordinaire have a full discussion on the merging of Disney & Star Wars... sorta movies, sorta magic, all geek.  That's next week!

Episode 144 -- Deucecast Intermission: The Godfather Part I

From the powerful opening notes to it's powerful closing scene, The Godfather is one of the greatest films in cinematic history, or as Mikey puts it, "It's an Italian film made for Italians"

George Lucas' influence... who was on tap to play Vito besides Brando... the actual madness of Marlon Brando... why Pacino refused his Oscar nod... and our favorite characters and scenes.

Plus, a look at the four hour documentary, Never Sleep Again, chronicling the Nightmare on Elm Street film series, plus P!nky gives his reviews on classic films like 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange and American History X.

In our Pretty in Pink segment, he also gives us his take on the classic Cannonball Run!

After revisiting a few modern films, the guys discuss the experience at the recent Alabama Phoenix Festival.

Friend of the Show and former co-host Matt joins in for a rousing game of Box Office Mojo as they take on Tom Cruise movies, then finally dive into the Big Five Topic--favorite sidekicks in films.

Garth Algar from Wayne's World... Abe from Blade... Fozzie Bear... Kronk from The Emperor's New Grove... Dean from License to Drive... and so many more names tossed into the mix... plus, is Silent Bob an actual sidekick to Jay, or are they equal?  Some of the guys agree... some don't.

Finally... some change over as the guys give their Top Five of the Year (so far), and then assign films for viewing... d$ will watch Steal and Escape from Tomorrow, while Mikey will see the doc Superheroes and Detachment, and P!nky has to catch My Bodyguard and 1992's Dracula.

The Episode with the Awesome Draft

Here comes your movie-guiding-light through tumult of bad film and greatness of good cinema... whatever that means.


Mikey, P!nky and d$ once again take the microphones, sans two turntables, to tell you about all the good and bad movies they've seen, what you should see and avoid, and to rib P!nky about his growing Jimmy Stewart obsession.


We discuss at length films like The Amazing Spider Man 2... A Million Ways to Die in the West... Neighbors... It's a Wonderful Life... and of course, X-Men: Days of Future Past...


A stirring game of Ryan Phillippe holds forth, moderated skillfully by P!nky (how many Chris Cooper movies can YOU name?) and our first edition of Pretty in Pink, where Mikey and d$ make the prediction as to how much he liked Dirty Dancing upon seeing it recently for the first time.


The guys then hold the first ever 2014 Deucecast BadA** Draft, where we decide which action characters would fill up a 10 person roster of the most awesome, kick buttedness team we could possibly put together... names like John Matrix (Commando)... Ripley (Alien)... James Bond (the Casino Royale version)... Jason Bourne... and who picks The Bear Jew from Inglorious Basterds?  Find out!


A great discussion is had on the upcoming Star Wars dealings, including recent casting news and a prospective one-off film, and what the guys think it will be, then a rabbit trail discussion on how Disney and Star Wars is faring against Harry Potter at Universal Studios in Orlando.


We wrap it up with the promise of movies that will be seen over the next month and discussed, including Frozen Ground, the new epic with Cusack and Cage... Never Sleep Again, a four hour doc on Nightmare on Elm Street... and Ashley Judd's award winning story of Flypaper.


Join us next month as the discussion turns to favorite sidekicks in movies, plus a 1932 classic that Mikey has to force himself to watch.

The Episode with Stupid Movies

Sometimes you do things, like podcast episodes, that you are so proud of, you want to yell to the Heavens and say, "Look at what we've done! Look at our splendor of Awesomesauce!" 


And when The Deucecast Movie Picture Show has an episode like that, we'll make sure to let our fans know... BUT we did record an episode that we do like very much... because it is on our level.


That's right, in this episode, d$, Mikey and P!nky take on "Stupid Movies".  Movies that aren't very smart, movies that perhaps wanted to be great and ended up being kinda dumb (Scream IV)... or really dumb (Airheads)... but that are loved very much in spite of, perhaps for that, very reason!


In depth discussions on really stupid films like The Adventures of Buckaroo Bonsai... Double Impact... Flash Gordon... Honey I Blew Up the Kid.. Con Air.. Snake Eyes... and yes, Batman Forever


The Three are joined in The Deucecast Studios by new friend of the show Mackey, and returning friend of the show, Drew / Morris, while producers Tommy and Shawn also wait in the wings.  And ol' pal Tom Johnson walks through the door at some point.


P!nky and d$ go through a lengthy discussion of little known parody film The Starving Games while Mikey grins in earnest... and although Kurt Russell's Breakdown was P!nky's assigned film to watch, he ends up watching another film instead... with surprising results.


The topics also hit hot button issues like, Johnny Depp's career... where Star Wars will be in 50 years... and what might it look like if JJ Abrams bombs in Episode VII... the guys play a rousing game of "Box Office Mojo" and give the latest incarnation of the Top Five of 2014.


Join us next month, as it's a kick off to summer with MANLY MOVIES... plus a whole lot more fun and the gang being testosteroney (which is the REAL San Francisco treat)


Movies discussed at length this episode:


Beauty & the Beast
Captain America: Winter Soldier
Convoy
Draft Day
End of Watch
The Grand Budapest Hotel
Lovelace
Noah
Oculus
The Starving Games
True Romance
Unbreakable

Like End of Watch (Mikey)... The Station Agent (Pinky)... and Paranoia (d$)... plus, Mikey dishes out his punishment for the other two after he won the Oscar game.

Robocop, the old and new... James Gandolfini's triumphant Enough Said... and Pinky's disdain for minions in Despicable Me 2

On the annex couch, Dr Earl also joins us for the discussion, with his latest and greatest tripe he's over the moon about... Russian Ark, anyone?
