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.


ALSO... next weekend!  THE ALABAMA PHOENIX FESTIVAL!  COME SEE US!!

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)

Beauty & the Beast
Captain America: Winter Soldier
