Episode 361: The Not 2018 Top Ten

January rolls on, and January is full of episodes reflecting upon 2018. Last week, Mikey, Dave, #TwitterlessDrEarl and Friend of the Show Jeremy Burgess recanted their least fave films of 2018, and this week, its the Not 2018 Top Ten. And to do so, it takes a mega-episode to recap.

Burgess gets a new theme song... film festival schedules... the movie goals and not-goals of the movie crew... Are You There God, It's Me Margaret...

Plus the top ten lists of favorite movies seen in 2018 that didn't actually come out in 2018... from 1937 all the way up to 2017.  Movies such as a doc about the LA Riots... a 70s noir classic with Martin Sheen as a bad guy... documentaries about bombshells and Munchhausen by proxy... war rabbits... ghosts... thieves... clowns... predators... bad wedding weekends and, of course, The Monster Squad.

And the films for the 2nd Annual Burgentine's Day are revealed at last.

Episode 360: Not for Me (2018's Lumps of Coal)

Image result for bad moviesIt's become an annual rite of passage... the films that the Deucecast likes to call "Lumps of Coal", those being the worst movies seen over the last 12 months.  Films like "Justice League" and "Colonia" and "Terminator Genysis" and even "Pootie Tang" (thanks Pinky!) have all worn the banner of shame.  Which films wear it this year?

Find out when Mikey and Dave bring in #TwitterlessDrEarl, and invite in Friend of the Show and Miss Independent himself Jeremy Burgess to talk about the... movies that just aren't for the guys.

First up, the birthday films, including the good (Taken, She's All That, Whiplash), the bad (Bride Wars, Boyhood, Paul Blart) and the ugly (Braddock: Mission in Action III) that came out in the month of January in year's past.

And then, a fun and light discussion on the films that just weren't as agreeable in 2018... with some Disney blunders... being WAR READY... traveling with Marky Mark... bad Wakowski Sibs... and of course, Nic Cage.

Enjoy the Lumps of Coal.
