Episode 418: The Decade by Genre Pt 1

The first decade of The Deucecast Movie Show has ended -- as the show counts the commonlaw definition between 2010 and 2019 -- and the crew is ready to discuss the best films of the last ten years.

With an upcoming special featuring the Top Ten of the 2010s, it's important to discuss many of the other films that were loved and beloved by Mikey, Dave, #TwitterlessDrEarl, and Friend of the Show Burgess.

In this first of two parts, the show features six of twelve genres - drama, animated, family, comic book films, indie movies, and horror/thriller films -- and each of the team gives their top three, genre by genre.

You'll get a look at what makes Captain America Civil War so great... the joy of Paddington...  lots of Wes Anderson and Terrence Malick love... Burgess hates families... why The Social Network might be a perfect film... THEY KNEW from Spotlight... the horror of Black Swan... Dave's pick for the possible best script of the 2010s... and much, much more.

Episode 416: Oscar Travesties

The Oscars are coming in just a few days, and a few days later, the Oscar predictions made before the Oscars but released after the Oscars (get it? got it? good!) but until then Mikey and Dave are here to discuss snubs and travesties.

Up first, Birthday movies, find out which movies dropped 5, 10, 15, 20, even 45 years ago!  Taylor Swift hit the big screen in 2010, Dave had a date in 2000, you were asked to not forget about the Brat Pack in 1985, and much more.

Then, the guys look at recent Oscar history and talk about the biggest mistakes, the biggest snubs, and the biggest travesties of all time... why didnt Mr Rogers get a nod?  Why didnt Ford get a Witness?  How did Art Carney win an award? And so much more...
