Episode 217: Ryfun, Amblin fun & Spring Movie Fun

It's an epic episode of awesomeness with Dave, Mikey and Pinky as they take on the films made under the banner of Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment.  To take on such a task, not only is friend of the show, Terrence Malick Apologist and Movie Historian, the esteemable Dr. Earl brought in, but radio host and host of My Star Wars Story and Dinner For Geeks podcasts Scott Ryfun.

After the intros, a stirring game of Denzel brings forth the films of Rob Schneider, who played the love interest chick in I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry and "the guy, I'm seeing the guy in Herbie Fully Loaded"... plus, the most Edward Woodward Talk you've ever heard on The Deucecast Movie Show!

Plus, could a podcast called "My Steel Magnolias Story" work?  Maybe?  Maybe not?

The Spring Movie Preview takes shape, giving the rundown on how DC's television rocks and movies suck, while Marvel's TV is okay and their movies rock... prospects of the new "Insurgent Detergent Redundant" film... Hiddleston's Hank Williams movie... the major fault in the third installment of "The Ring" series... Don Cheadle's bid for the Oscar... the film that Dave considers a loose reboot of "Troop Beverly Hills"... a first person shooter movie... the lack of buzz for the live action "Jungle Book"...

From the director of "New Year's Day" and "Valentine's Day", the next in the series of random holiday flicks...

And... what flick seems like a ripoff of the Dabney Coleman classic "Short Time"?

And then, the gang dives into their favorite Amblin Films (you can see the list of Amblin movies here).  Among the discussion points:  That time that Disney & Warner Brothers worked together... more shocking revelations of films that Pinky hasn't seen... Mikey's irrational fear of Peter Coyote... John Goodman as an exterminator... the peak of Harley Jane Kozak... the controversy of Poltergeist and Amblin... The History Channel version of Steven Spielberg... the dim prospects of Christian Bale... Scott Ryfun's hate/love for Spielberg... Audrey's final movie... and lots of Saving Private Ryan talk.

Pretty in Pink takes on the movie "Heathers"... and guest Scott Ryfun chooses the next Pretty in Pink film!
