Episode 410: Christmas Gifts 2019

It's an annual tradition around the Deucecast Movie Show, as Mikey and Dave are the giving sort. In fact, they love to give gifts of merth, of joy, and awesome, hence, the Annual Christmas Gifts episode where they give those very things.

The giving spirit is so strong, however, that they cannot share it alone -- so as per usual with the Gifts ep, Friend of the Show Remodeling Clay Shaver calls in to complete the generous circle.

First up, a little Box Office Mojo game to set the scene, where Mikey and Clay compete to guess the box office totals of Christmas classic films.

Then, the presents are unwrapped, as Hollywood elites like Gerard Butler, Vanessa Hudgens, Adam Driver, and more are all given thoughtful gifts from the crew.

And of course, the guys give gifts to each other... except for Mikey, who spends the whole show giving himself stuff.

Episode 409: The Actress Draft

Feliz Navidad to all, as the Deucecast heads towards Christmas Day... but before the crew does the annual gift giving (which will be next week), there is another matter at hand. Selecting those female counterparts to go along with the actors selected for the guy's fictional movie studios in Ep 405.

And once again, the Pride of Albany Georgia, Spawn of Ryfun, Young G joins the show to give his take.

First up, birthday movies, which always helps you feel a little old when you find out that Kingsman is five years old, Oceans Twelve is 15 years old, Legends of the Fall is 25 years old and The Jerk is going on 40...

Then, a little game to figure out who goes first, and then the guys dive into the Actress Draft, each picking five to sign to an exclusive deal for their own studios.  Who gets picks? How fast will d$ pick Amy Adams? Who takes ScarJo? Which Brie will #TwitterlessDrEarl go for, Larson or Alison? Will Mikey actually consider Melissa McCarthy? And what surprising selection does Young G make his #1 draft pick?

As a recap, here is who was chosen in the Actor Draft:

Garrison – Leonardo DiCaprio… Tom Cruise… Jake Gyllenhaal… John David Washington… Paul Rudd… Michael Keaton… Henry Cavill…

d$ – The Rock… Idris Elba… Christian Bale…  Tom Hardy… Winston Duke… John Cho… Zac Efron

Michael – Ryan Gosling… Robert Pattison… Adam Driver… Michael B Jordan… Nicolas Cage… Tom Hanks… Iko Uwais…

#TwitterlessDrEarl – Jemaine Clement… Willem Dafoe… James McAvoy… Timothee Chalemet… Edward Norton… Ryan Reynolds… Andrew Garfield…

Episode 408: ReFlicktions Story

Even though ReFlicktions are every month, Christmastime ReFlicktions just seem a little better, more festive, and jollier.  That bowl full of jelly isn't jelly at all, it's just Mikey laughing at #TwitterlessDrEarl's jokes, while Dave tries to keep control!

This month, the guys have a plethora, a cornucopia, a tundra if you will, of films to discuss, including many still in theaters and several Oscar contenders.

Dave leads off with one of the worst films he's seen in a while, while Mikey gives three films with incredibly long and cumbersome titles. The guys wonder if they've talked about Doctor Sleep already (??) and marvel at Ford v Ferrari.

The guys dive deep into The Irishman with mixed results, Mikey is displeased with a critical darling, Dave catches up on an old Disney classic, and everyone agrees that Rian Johnson's new film is a home run.

Episode 406: DeuceGiving 2019

It's hard to believe the year is almost over!  And you can tell how fast time flies because it's time for the annual DeuceGiving episode!  Mikey and Dave celebrate Thanksgiving by listing the things in movies and Hollywood they are thankful for.

First up, they play a little game of Ryan Phillippe, using an Actor Randomizer to find who gets the play...

Then, the thanks... So many streaming services... the ending of legendary roles... a (silent) return to excellence.. movies that are good... and so much more.

Episode 405: The Actor Draft

In this last regular episode of the year, before next week's DeuceGiving and the Christmas season gets going, Mikey, Dave and #TwitterlessDrEarl set up a fictitious movie studio in the vein of classic movie studios that would sign actors to mega deals. Thus our first of many Draft Episodes kick off.

...But first, birthday movies! Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 turns 5... The Blind Side turns 10... National Treasure is 15... Dogma is 20... and Supergirl with Helen Slater is... 35??

And what better way to play a game called Chronology than to invite in the Spawn of the Pride of Albany Georgia, young Garrison Ryfun!  Lil G helps put the movies in order along with a whining Mikey and a brilliant #TwitterlessDrEarl.

Finally... pretend a movie studio has come to each of the crew and given an unlimited budget to sign FIVE actors to an exclusive deal.  The guys begin the draft and pick their choices one by one to be in their studios... who gets picked?  Who gets left on the table?

And finally... everyone knows ABBA follows Kenny... but for the first time, the question that everyone has been asking is answered... what follows ABBA...?

Episode 404: Favorite Military Battle Scenes

It's a few days past Veteran's Day but it's always a good time to salute the men and women in the armed forces! So first, the Deucecast crew says "Thank you for EVERYTHING you do for our freedom!"  Without the freedom, this podcast wouldn't continually be able to churn out movie mediocrity every single week!

First up, the guys play a little war movie themed version of Rotten Tomatoes with everything from Pearl Harbor to Dunkirk son to We Were Soldiers and much more.

Then, Mikey, Dave and #TwitterlessDrEarl list their favorite movie scenes featuring military battles... none of that Lord of the Rings Pelinor Fields mumbo jumbo... just straight up Armed Services, Yankees, and even the British Military.

Episode 400: The DCMS Virtual Film Festival Pt 1

The Deucecast Movie Show is proud to do what only a few people thought -- or cared -- they could do... hit Episode 400.  After 399 shows of film mediocrity (with some flashes of brilliance: see "Hoyle, KB"), the 400th show begins.

To celebrate 400, Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl, are hosting the very first Deucecast Movie Show Podcast Virtual Film Festival, each showcasing five films that are near and dear to them over the course of a virtual weekend, on a virtual stage, in front of a virtual audience.

And because the show wouldn't be what it was without the fans who listen, and the rotating cast of characters that come on the show, ten of the regulars have been invited to give three of their favorite films to showcase.

Jennifer Kaufman is on first, with what she considers to be a perfect film, plus a cute flick between her and Dude Kaufman, and a sentimental Deucecast favorite too.

Longtime co-host and now Gulag occupant Pinky comes back to give his fave Pixar film, his fave horror film, and a recent movie he saw as a young tyke. Like, when he was 8.

Indie fan and Mikey contrarian Jeremy Burgess steps in for a fabulous sports documentary, a classic thriller, and then zags with an unexpected guilty pleasure.

Finally, on Part 1, the TechnoRetro Dads themselves join the show -- Shaz & Shua showcase some classic 80s sci-fi, a Steve Martin classic, and, of course, Krull.  As well as Dave's story about Cheap Trick. 

Of course, the show hosts have their own picks too, with a crazy doc and a serious doc.  Pretentiousness reigns from 1928, Incredible Michael Mann, and another Kerri Green name drop.

Join the show next week for Part 2 of the Virtual Film Fest, with appearances by Retro Joe, Clay Shaver, Jenn Novotny and both Old and Young Ryfun!

Episode 397: Books, Movies, and KB Hoyle

Episode 395: It's all Relative

Sometimes you just need family, and when its the family in the movies, its even better.  Mikey, Dave and #TwitterlessDrEarl tackle the topic of relatives in movies... but to get an expert word on it, two people who excel at being father and son -- Scotty Ryfun and Garrison, the Spawn of Ryfun, also known as the Pride of Tifton Georgia!

But first, birthday movies!  Checking out the movies that released in August in 2014 (Birdman!), 2009, 2004 and on and on back, all the way until 55 years ago, when Mary Poppins came out.

A rousing game of Denzel with all the guys, and then a great top five list filled with movies that feature actors and actresses that are blood relative... Sheens!  Cusacks!  Bridges!  Wilsons!  Branaugh and Thompsons... wait, what?

Ryfun puts his own spin on the list itself, as #TwitterlessDrEarl cannibalizes Dave's list, and Mikey desperately searches for any relative of Kevin Costner who was in the same movie so Mikey can make that one movie his entire list.

Fun. Frivolity. Ryfuns.  Good times. Great oldies.

Episode 393: Top Five Jennifers With Two Jennifers

Days after D23 -- and the assurance that the Deucecast crew's predictions came true -- what better way to follow up than for Mikey and Dave to bring in more epic guests.  Of course #TwitterlessDrEarl... but then, the return of two of our favorites.

The Jennifers both call in, that being Kaufman and Novotny, for more frivolity, mayhem and hilarity to ensue!  First up, a brand new game called ENSEMBLE, calling out the movies with huge casts.

And then, the main discussion... top five Jennifers in film. Characters, actresses, movies, any Jennifer, Jenny, Ginny, Ginnifer or anyone J-Lo or J-Law you can think of.

Episode 392: The D23 Prediction Show

Not only are the Deucecast Movie Show hosts Mikey and Dave (and #TwitterlessDrEarl too!) huge movie fans... but also Disney fans too. And in a rare episode that is quite timely, the every-other-year huge Disney convention D23 happens this weekend.

So the show digs in to talk about the movies... and Disney +... and Star Wars... and Marvel... and the parks... and much much more. But to do so, they need to bring in a little help.  And one Friend of the Show Jennifer is just not good enough so for the first time, the DCMS orchestrates the Meeting of the Jennifers.

That's right!! Friend of the Show Jenn Novotny meets Friend of the Show Jenn Kaufman as both call in to discuss everything that needs to be discussed.

Predictions are made -- will there be new pavilions at Brazil?  Who's excited (and not) for Frozen II?  What Pixar films are coming and what do we know?

If you love Disney and Disney movies and frivolity, this special episode is amazing and magical.

In the second part of the new Best of the Worst series, Mikey, Dave and #TwitterlessDrEarl look way back to five years ago... or 25, as it were... to find the dreck of the years 1990 to 1999.

And Shaver brings the bracket, with roles like Axel Foley, Akeem, Billy Valentine and others from classic films like Best Defense... The Golden Child... 48 Hours...

Episode 385: Future Disney Films

Happy Fourth of July from everyone at The Deucecast, including Mikey, Dave and of course #TwitterlessDrEarl, and our extended Friends and Co-hosts Pinky, Producer Tommy and Producer Shawn! For this July 4th episode, the Deucecast crew does... well, nothing to celebrate. Instead, they talk Disney movies, and to do so, they call up Friend of the Show Jenn Novotny.

After a quick (!) round of The Denzel Game, they dive into Disney Future Films, from Artemis Fowl to live action Lady & the Tramp to the almost here Lion King to the way far off Avatar sequels.

Episode 384: The Superhero Role Championship

In this superhero edition of The Deucecast Movie Show, Mikey and Dave, sans #TwitterlessDrEarl, take on the long running Tourney series, this time with a heroic task... the best superhero role in the movies.

Of course, its a heroic superhero task that cannot be tackled by two yay-hoos like Mikey and Dave... at least not just them. So they bring in someone who is half their age and just as dorky, the Son of Ryfun, the Golden Child of Waybridge, Georgia, Little G himself, Garrison.

And the tourney kicks in, with matches like Superman taking on Superman, Batman against Batman, X v X, Guardians tackling Guardians... if you liked Batman v Superman, this is much better. If you liked Captain America Civil War, this isn't nearly as good, but its better than Batman v Superman!

And what a tourney it turns out to be!

Episode 383: Good Disappointments

Sometimes you get movies you love that are awesome... sometimes you get movies that you love that are otherwise terrible... and sometimes you get movies that are supposed to be fantastic, but you just can't quite get it together enough to like them.  Appreciate them, sure. Like them? Nope.

And to discuss such serious matters, Dave and Mikey bring in cinephile and independent auteur Friend of the Show Jeremy Burgess.

First up, Birthday Movies! Find out how old 22 Jump Street is... and Tarzan... and Rocky II... and the incredible June that was in 1989

Studio Themes is the name of the game this time around, as the guys try to guess the quick music presenting everything from Amblin to Universal.

Finally, the top five movie disappointments... from Roma to Vice to a Chris Nolan epic to a Godfather sequel to a Harry Potter tripe.

And finally, Dave dissects what exactly is wrong with the movie Boyhood and why Burgess is wrong for loving it so much.  While Mikey just hates it.

In these ReFlicktion discussions, the guys touch on Burgess' love of Godzilla... Dave's random Christian movie choice... will Robert Pattison (R Batz) be a good Batman... Asian movies that aren't Crazy Rich Asians... Keanu chit chat... Mikey loving Illumination films... Olivia Wilde's directing... Hicksplotation... and how does Taran Egerton do as Elton John in Rocketman

Episode 379: Baseball Scenes

Batter up!!  The baseball season is in full swing, with the oil of the leather gloves, the seams of the baseball, the smell of the fresh cut grass, and the nonsensical nonsense of hosts Mikey and Dave for another exciting episode of The Deucecast!

To discuss baseball, however, they need to get in someone who has some credibility -- like baseball author, Royals enthusiast and new Friend of the Show Ethan Bryan!

The guys discuss baseball from the outset, including Ethan's love of baseball and baseball movies.

Then, the topic at hand is Top Five Baseball Scenes, and the guys celebrate films and key scenes from movies like Major League (Taylor bunts!) and Bull Durham (a place setting...) and even a Few Good Men (you're charging him with possession of a condiment?)

So get your popcorn and cracker jacks, and enjoy the show since we'll always come back.

Episode 378: Actors in Anything

The Road to 400 continues, ever closer that before, when the guys weren't as close to 400, but are closer now. That is Mikey and Dave, this time with an empty pretentious corner, as #TwitterlessDrEarl has gone off to perform neurosurgery on orphans somewhere in Wichita.
But on the Binder & Binder Hotline is none other than the Amish One herself, Friend of the Show Jenn Novotny, all the way from Pennsylvania to help us discuss our favorite actors we'll watch in anything. 

After a quick chat about Disney topics, including the new Star Wars news and the Disney+ Streaming service, plus a plug for Jenn Boo, aka, Brady's new album coming soon.
Then the topic at hand, the actors that we'll watch in anything, no matter how good or bad the movie might be. Great chats on Scoot McNairy... Liam Neeson... Jason Segel... the awesome of Tom Hanks... Mikey's mancrush on Ben Foster... Dave's mancrush on The Rock... Novotny's mancrush on Benedict Cumberbatch, maybe.

Episode 377: The Best of the Worst (2010s)

In an episode that can best describe the podcast here, Best of the Worst definitely can include Mikey, Dave and #TwitterlessDrEarl... and what better way to discuss below average and mediocrity that our good friend from way cross Georgia, in a little town called Vinings (or wherever), The Spawn of Ryfun, aka, Garrison gets on the hotline.

New theme song in tow, he's in to youth up the place, in the absence of the forlorn Pinky, still stuck in a Chinese gulag (though it might be Thai, there is no evidence)

After playing a round of the Percentages, including finding out the highest -- and lowest -- Rotten Tomatoes scores from a bevy of actors, including Samuel L Jackson... Bradley Cooper... and even Brie Larson.

Then, its onto the countdown, where the guys rank their favorite low score Rotten Tomatoes films. Dandy movies starring the aforementioned Sam Jackson... and Kevin James... The Rock... BatFleck... and much more!

So sit back and enjoy the show, riffing on how much they love some truly awful films from 2010 until present day!

Episode 376: Franchises & Endgames

Last week, they were a crew of moviegoers who had not seen Avengers Endgame. This week, having seen it multiple times each, they see with a new set of eyes. Think with a new set of thoughts. See with... you get the the picture.

Either way, Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl are here to dish on what ends up being the biggest film of the weekend, and possibly the biggest film of all time.  Avengers Endgame.  The guys are joined by Friend of the Show Jared McG, and they do a quick dive into the new Star Wars Trailer first.

Then, a spoiler free review of Avengers Endgame (with instructions about the bonus content after Kenny wraps ups his ending tune.)

Then, the guys give their Top Five Movie Franchises of all time... any films series that is 4 or more, and contained within the same universe.  Characters like Wolverine, and Indy, and Kermit, and Dom, and Ethan, and of course, Bond... James Bond.

Then, after the show, stick around as the team spoils the heck out of Endgame, as they take a deep dive into the movie, some of the Easter Eggs, what they liked, loved and felt lacking about the film -- you are given plenty of warning on the spoilers, though.

Episode 375: Avengers Endgame Primer

It's a moment we've been waiting for since last April... but now its Avengers Endgame Week!!! Dave and Mikey already have their tickets, as well as #TwitterlessDrEarl, and bringing in the original OG, the Young G, every since he was a lower case G, but now he's a Big G, girls see he got the money, hunnah dolla bills y'all... the Son of the Pride of Tifton Georgia, little Garrison Ryfun.

Kicking it off right at the top, the guys run through all of the movies in the Cinematic Timeline -- not just years released, but chronological in the story's timeline, with Captain Marvel coming right at the end.

For most people, this would be refresher, perhaps covering movies no one has seen in a while (Thor!?)... the guys talk about first appearances in each movie (where did Bucky show up?  What about Howard Stark?  And Black Widow??), giving their takes on each of the films, and finally give their top five faves each, and the essentials of the MCU.

And a refresher on the end credit scenes... all getting you ready for the Avengers Endgame premiere!

After Birthday movies, which reveals what a debacle April 1994 was, and what a masterpiece April 1989 was, they guys jump right into the films they've seen over the last few weeks -- with Mikey not watching as many, Dave coming back from an 8 day non-movie-watching vacation, and Dr Earl just doing Dr Earl things.

Episode 373: John Candy vs Steve Martin

It's another Tournament Episode for The Deucecast Movie Show, as Dave and Mikey seek to find the greatest movie role ever, and this time, it's two comedic legends.

The greatest movie roles of John Candy (Barf! Chet Ripley! Del Russell!  Uncle Buck) take on the greatest movie roles of Steve Martin (CD!  George Banks! Navin the Jerk!) one by one, until only one is standing and moves on to the Big Bracket.

And of course the best person to bring in for this kind of frivolity is Friend of the Show, Michigan's Own Remodeling No Just Clay Shaver.  He gives the bracket match by match, and jumps in with his own thoughts as well as breaking some ties. 

Great conversation throughout with beloved actors and some films that deserve many discussions!

Episode 372: Favorite Actors When We Were Kids

Another episode of the Movie Show is here, with Mikey and Dave bringing the noise and the funk. And the film.  The topic tonight is Actors that they loves when they were kids, and may or may not care about at all since they are all grown up.

What better guy to bring in than the pride of Tifton, Georgia, Friend of the Show Scotty Ryfun, with his own theme song!

First up, a shout out to the new Deucecast Historian, and the old school Endor DeuceTrax... then a Ryfun riffs on losing episodes of My Star Wars Story.  Then a plug for The Magic on a Dollar Podcast, hosted by d$.

Then, a brand new game called The Streak, which seems easy -- just name movies from each year, starting with the present day, and going backwards.  And which Ice Age came out in 2009??

Some Star Wars Galaxy's Edge talk, including the announcement of opening dates, details of Millennium Falcon Smuggler's Run, and much more.

Then the topic at hand... a chit chat about Movie Novelization... then fave actors and actresses that, when the guys were young, they just loved.  Names like Tim Conway... David Tomlinson... Corey Haim... Charles Grodin... and many more names, including some the show has likely never even talked about...  also discussed, Dave's take on Mary E Mastrantonio... how to use CPR propertly... recasting Cannonball Run... plus, a Meredith Salenger update!
