Episode 419: The Decade by Genre Pt 2

What's better than almost two hours spent, discussing six genres of films in the 2010s?  Another 90 minutes more with the guys talking about six more genres!

Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl are again joined by Friend of the Show, Miss Independent himself Jeremy Burgess, to tackle even more films in the years spanning 2010 to 2019.

First up, birthday movies, with classics like "Hot Tub Time Machine", "Major Payne", "Romeo Must Die", and even "Baby: Secret of a Lost Legend" all coming upon 10, 20, even 35 years from release.

Jeremy also gives a heads up about a few indie films to keep an eye on.

Then, the rest of the decade, with the guys giving their top three in genres like Comedy... Sci/Fi Fantasy... Documentaries... Action movies... even guilty pleasures... and wild card round of Potent Potables.

Expect lots of love for a Mission Impossible flick... Mad Max's glorious return... Sandler's gems... Mikey's love for the man behind the Winnebago... and of course, Dave's pick for the best bicycle messenger movie ever.

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.
