Episode 465: The Not 2020 Top Ten

The review of 2020 films and pop culture continues, as it's time for the first of a couple of Top Ten Lists. In this one, Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl talk about the films that were NOT from 2020, but from all years previous.

It's the Top 10 of NOT 2020, ranking the best films seen that didn't come out in the last 12 months. And to add to the group, The Offspring of the Pride of Stone Mountain South Georgia, Lil G, Garrison Ryfun joins the show to take his rightful place as #DrEarl's Pretentawan Learner.

Several foreign films make the list as the guys get bougee... lots of old films on the list, as the crew pretends to be important... and of course, everyone cuts Footloose.  A little Korean cinema talk... some Lily James news... Armie Hammer did what?... Mikey's Studio Ghibli kick... Lil G's fave zombie movie... Dave's obsession with a dead reporter... #DrEarl's Buckley love...

Episode 464: 2021 Surprise and Delights

The Deucecast Movie Show strives to be an escape and the guys do their best this week to shut out the world for an hour and give you some movie chatter... and this time, it's all about being surprised, delighted, or in some cases, both.

Movies that were thought to be a little silly, or movies approached with apprehension because "Surely, this movie can't be any good?" and yet, IT WAS! 

First up, some January Birthday Movies, giving you the five, ten, twenty more year anniversaries of films you've heard of... and some you haven't. Cause that The Way Back ain't got no Affleck in it.

A little round of January Movie Rotten Tomatoes, with a Christian Slater triple play, and then the top five... the films that Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl watched and were happy to report were actually pretty good.

It's a fun episode, revisiting the good times in front of a screen of some sort... and the kickoff to the annual Year End Best Episodes!
