Episode 252: DeuceGiving 2016

It's an annual tradition around these parts, where movie fans Mikey, Dave and Pinky recognize the Thanksgiving Holiday by giving thanks to their favorite things of the movie and pop culture world.

First up, its Birthday movies!  Remember Arthur Christmas?  Neither do we.  But we do remember Sling Blade!  Romeo + Juliet!  American Tail: Fievel Goes West!  The Mosquito Coast!

Then its a round of Rotten Tomatoes, a potpourri style... each of the hosts calls out a movie, and everyone guesses the critics score.  Find out the scores on the Keanu Reeves' The Day the Earth Stood Still... Gigli... Sleepaway Camp II... Sesame Street's Follow that Bird... Insomnia... and the shocking score on Hamburger Hill ("The best Grenada Invasion movie ever made" - Remodeling Clay Shaver)...

What defines a modern western, and do Hell or High Water and No Country For Old Men qualify?  Being happy for theater chain buyouts and movie pass programs... Marvel doing it right, especially with the Avengers... Chris Pratt & Amy Adams movie choices... Disney Animation getting it done... Sci-Fi's resurgence... the turnaround from screen to home viewing...

Plus a breakdown of Pinky and Deer Park Water.

Finally, Pretty in Pink returns as Pinky gives us his thoughts on classic early 80s cartoon The Secret of Nimh.

Special thanks to everyone who adds to our show -- Clay Shaver, Jenn Kaufman, TechnoRetro Dads, Skywalking Thru Neverland, Retro Joe, Scott Ryfun, Billy Seybolt, Terrance Malick Apologize, Whit Stillman fan and Movie Historian Dr. Earl and many more for adding to and making our show great.

Episode 249: Favorite Political Movies

It's election season here in 'Merica, and to recognize, Mikey, Pinky, and Dave are talking favorite political films!  And who better to bring in to discuss such movies than the President of the Pretentious Corner, the Witt Stillman fan, the Film Historian, the Terence Malick Apologist himself, the honorable Dr Earl.

First up, a round of The Ryan Phillippe Game, where you have to name all the films of a certain actor like Kurt Russell, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Owen Wilson or Charlize Theron and more.

And then... fave political movies!   People trying to win an election!  Leaders trying to stop a war!  Superheroes trying to stay on the right side of America!  Movies like Lincoln!  Argo!  Wag the Dog! Captain America Civil War!

A great recommendation for the movie "Failsafe" as well, if you can find it, and for "Eye in the Sky", which is now available on Netflix.

So enjoy the list of political movies and tell us your own faves!

DISCLAIMER:  There isn't any talk of the current political climate, nor it's candidates, its merely a list of favorite films involving not just government, but anything where a leadership plays a game of hierarchy for positioning...
