Episode 246: Barn Raising Religious Films

Channeling our inner Left Behind with some Chris Tomlin and Kirk Cameron, The Deucecast Movie Show turns attention to those great films with a religious tone... be it matters of faith or cult or anything less, Dave, Mike & Pinky welcome back Witt Stillman Fan, Terrance Malick Apologist and Film Historian Dr Earl.

And for the first time on the show, co-host of the Cinemartyrs, a podcast about watching bad Christian films, Atlanta based Bill Seybolt (that's SY-BOLT, thank you very much) joins the guys on the Binder & Binder Hotline.  This, of course, brings the discussion back to Christian Mingle, Lacey Chebert, Stephen Toblowsky and a maritime themed agency.  

First up, doing the birthday movies!  How old is The Depahted?  What about Training Day or The Color of Money or even Enter the Ninja?  Find out here.

Then, a rousing round of bDMI, or Reverse IMDb, reading the actors in a movie and asking for the guesses -- how fast can you guess the films? 

And finally, fave religious films!  Dr. Earl in the pretentious corner, drinks his Chablis while wearing his blazer with the patches on the arm, comes up with the hipster man bun movies ("The Passion of Joan of Arc"?), while everyone else goes more normal... Scientology docs!  Amish Harrison Ford! Steve Martin and the miracles!  Amy Adams, who Dave loves!  Marxist Homosexuals! (not kidding... just listen...)... Elizabeth Olsen and Marcy! May! Martha!  Marlene!  The most famous running music of the 80s!  Hanson, MMMBop and their own beer, MmmHops!

Also, the history of barn raising in film, the resurgence of Christian Slater, as well as a rundown of Contemporary Christian Worship music leaders today.

Pinky also gives his take on a Mel Brooks classic in Pretty in Pink.

Oh, and finally, a reference to the Tom Hanks & Dan Ackroyd classic "Dragnet".

Episode 245: The Greatest Movie Year Tourney Part III

Mikey, Dave and Pinky come together once again to talk about movie years.  Great movie years.  In fact, the greatest movie year ever, in the greatest movie year ever tournament.  But this much awesome cannot be held only by the three hosts, so joining the group is frequent contributor and friend of the show Remodeling Clay Shaver.

This time, we see movies like Weird Science, Top Gun, The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off and Aliens go head to head when 1986 takes on 1985.

A controversial decision and disagreement comes in with 1975 runs up against 2005.

A first round blowout in the match of 1975 vs 2005

A close battle with 2010 and 2012.

Titanic from 1997 sails in to try and sink 2001.

And a pattern seems to emerge with the power of the 2000s, with 1984 going straight after the year 2000.
