Episode 231: Cult Classic Films - The Live Show

Coming to you live and recorded from a small side room (and not the promised main stage, but who's counting...) at the annual Magic City Con in Birmingham, Alabama, it's The Deucecast Movie Show!
Dave, Mikey and Pinky hold court to first do a quick audience participation version of The Rotten Tomatoes Game, then the main segment kicks off.

It's "Cult Classic Films", however you may define it.  Movies that the guys feel that have quite a following, movies that aren't forgotten, movies that really define a slice of a generation.

Enjoy the live show!  And remember those films that somehow have kept being popular and beloved...

Episode 230: The Unnecessary Sequels

You could say every episode after Ep 1 of this show is an unnecessary sequel... but yet, its 229 episodes later.  Being Pinkless again, Dave and Mikey welcome back Hurricane Rhett to the studio, as well as Producer Shawn, and on the line... it's Scott Ryfun!

Before the lists begin, it's time to play another "NAME THAT..." game, this time with acting legend Jean-Claude Van Damme.  Can you tell your "Maximum Risk" from "Cyborg" from "Hard Target" from "Lionheart"?  Find out as you hear the descriptions and make the guess on the titles.  

Finally, because "Now You See Me 2" isn't called "Now You Don't", it qualifies as an "Unnecessary Sequel".  Listen in as Dave, Mikey, Ryfun & Hurricane Rhett give their best examples of great movies that had movies after it that just didn't need to be made...

Movies such as a Halloween sequel... a Crocodile Dundee sequel... a Highlander sequel... A Grumpy Old Men sequel... a Mannequin sequel... and some classic films that have... prequels. Yup. It happens here. 

And topics like... tainting the legacy of "Close Encounter of the Third Kind"... Mike Myers and Willy Wonka... Paul Hogan's tax woes... the future of your franchise when Shannon Tweed gets involved... the lose your virginity 80s genre... the "Put Shia LaBeouf in Everything" era... Edward James Olmos with a Schwarzenegger ISIS flair... Jack Nicholson sequels... the sadness of the prequels... Terry Crews making movies better... the musical stylings of Mac Davis... the fallacy of Louis Gossett, Jr... Bo Svenson vs Joe Don Baker...

Forget Everything You Think You Know!!!!  A few weeks back, after the debacle that was Batman Vee Superman Dawn of Justice, the movie guys had a long discussion on the good (not much) and bad (much) on DC movies.
With Pinky out on location filming his first movie, Dave and Mikey welcome in friend of the show, Terrence Malick Apologist and Film Historian Dr Earl, and welcome back to the studio the Rantmaster Extraordinaire Hurricane Rhett to discuss Marvel movies.

  • Fox Studios problem with X-Men
  • Which X-Men can carry a movie, and who would fail
  • The Fassbender to McKellen problem
  • Jennifer Lawrence mailing it in
  • Sony's Spiderman dilemma
  • What has been with Spidey and what could have been 
  • Sony and Disney Marvel working together
  • Possible recasting of RDJ and Chris Evans

  • Marvel's approaches to the movies 
  • #SoWhiteAvengers
  • The future movies coming up 
  • The Marvel TV (Daredevil, Jessica Jones) melding into the cinematic universe
  • Brie Larson as Captain Marvel
Also, with some questions of Al Gore's Interwebs, the topic turns to what Marvel should have done differently... who should have been the original Sue Storm in 2005... the future of Inhumans and Mutants... and what the heck a CTI is...

Enjoy this lively discussion of where Marvel movies have been, where they are now and where they are going!
