Episode 317: Recent Fave Docs

Mikey and Dave are back in the studio, inviting in Friend of the Show, Wit Stillman Fan, Lover of Brie (Allison, Larsen & the cheese), Terrence Malick Apologist, Film Historian and Nobel Prize of Medicine Nominee for Thuganomics, The Estimable Twitterless Dr. Earl.  And back on the Binder & Binder Hotline, good friend of the show and Remodeling Clay Podcast host Remodeling Clay Shaver!

First up, a few birthday movies, with mentions of classics like "Sommersby", "Definitely, Maybe" and "Cradle 2 Tha Grave" and then a gross use of the term "chicken finger"

Another round of Word Up! takes place, with thoughts on a new Joker film, the Solo trailer and the Marvel 10th Anniversary picture.

If you look back into The Deucecast Movie Show's archives, you'll find Top Ten Documentaries back in Episode 183 and 184 (July 2015).  Since then, a plethora of docs have come out, and the guys take a look at some of their favorites released since then and in recent memory.

Shying away from the ones frequently discussed -- "Tickled", "Weiner", "Dear Zachary", etc -- other documentaries surface and resurface, with subjects like Gilbert Gottfried and Nic Cage as Superman and Tower Records and The Beatles and Steven Spielberg and chickens and chicken fingers and racism and volcanoes, Werner Herzog style.

Also, the power of nostalgia and Caddyshack.
