Episode 402: The Villains Halloween Tourney

This is Halloween, This is Halloween, Halloween, Halloween! Mikey and Dave have sent off #TwitterlessDrEarl to another country for medical missions, but bring in a Villains expert... Jeremy Burgess, star of the reality show The Burgeler, to discuss some of the best movie bad guys around.

First up, Birthday movies! Inherent Vice turns 5! Three Kings turns 20! The Terminator is... 35??

From the darkest psychopaths on the silver screen (Lecter! Joker! Mr Blond) to the comedic jerks (Lumburgh! Biff!) to straight up supernatural evil (Freddy! Jason! Boggs!!), the guys match them up and eliminate them one by one to see which is the best villain of all!

And finally, Mikey gives his picks for the winners and losers in this year's MikeTober... from Cube... The Stepfather... VideoDrome...

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!
