Episode 192: Breakthrough Roles

Back and awesome, d$, Mikey & Pinky join together at The Deucecast Studios Central, joined by movie historian & Terrence Malick Apologist the honorable Doctor Earl, and the gang is here to discuss favorite "Breakthrough" roles.

First, a little round of the newest movie game sensation that's sweeping the nation... or the studios anyway... Chronology.  Put the movies in order and you win the game... bad Sandler! Bad King! Overly long Costner flicks!  And even Pinky's Potables!

Then, a discussion of favorite first big roles in movies... not necessarily the first roles, but the first big roles.  And along with movie discussions come movie controversies... as in... if you've never heard of a Nicole Kidman movie, could it be consider a breakout role?  Is Bob Falfa really Harry Ford's first big role, or just a stepping stone to Star Wars?  Do we like fat Jonah Hill or Skinny Jonah Hill?  Do we really need both Margot Robbie AND Rosamund Pike?   Also... early Kate Winslet... early Michael Keaton... early Audrey Hepburn... and much, much more.

Pretty in Pink takes on the movie Fletch, and find out if Pinky loved, liked, meh, disliked or hated this Chevy Chase classic... and finally...

Miketober is here!  Our 2nd Annual MikeTober Movie Fest commences, as Mikey picks up his horror movie assignments for the month of October.  Dr Earl gives his picks, along with friends of the show Shaz & Shua and Remodeling Clay Shaver, as well as Pinky and d$'s horror choices for Mikey's viewing terror.

Episode 191: Top 100... 60 to 51

Another entry into the Top 100 Series, as we reach the 1/2 way point into our year long countdown of the  top 100 films of all time.

Not the "best films", obviously, as you likely wouldn't see "While You Were Sleeping" on any "Greatest Films Ever" list... but its on d$'s list.  So is a great DeNiro/Grodin 80s classic, a Stephen King novella turned movie and why in the world is there a clip featuring Sally Field and Olympia Dukakis?  Get ready for the Magnolias.

Pinky reels out his a favorite Chris Nolan movie, an Emma Stone modern classic and takes the show to Monstropolis.

Mikey discusses one of his favorite Kevin Smith films, a John Cusack movie right on point, and his affinity for Bruce Campbell.   All in all, 30 films discussed, and the countdown rolls on!

Episode 188: Independence Days

The 188th reiteration of The Deucecast Movie Show commences now!  Though Mikey, Pinky & d$ fancy themselves to be more mainstream, they do like a good indie film every now and then... problem is, more and more films are actually independent and not from a major studio...

What better way to wade through the madness than to call upon Terrance Malick fan and film historian Dr Earl AND Friend of the Show and Boyhood Apologist Jeremy Burgess!

Birthday movies kick off the show, as "Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole" is mentioned for one of the few times ever... five years old, I tell you!

Indie films is the topic, and among our favorite independent films tossed out are classics like Clerks and Memento and The Blair Witch and yes... a romantic comedy about Greek love, from executive producer Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson.

Then, America's favorite classic film review, Pretty in Pink, as Young Pinky gives his review of the football masterpiece, "Necessary Roughness" with Scott Bakula and Robert Loggia... and yes, Kathy Ireland. In her prime.
