Episode 499: The One Before

Well, here we are, one week out from the biggest episode we've had since the last big episode we had. It's the Deucecast Movie Show and before we get to 500, we have to do 499.  And in the spirit of the One Before, Dave, Mikey, and #TwitterlessDrEarl are celebrating ones before... or more specifically, movies that have a story before the story that you've already seen...

Prequels.

No, not THOSE Prequels... well, not just those Prequels. These are the origin stories, the lead ups, the ones that show us how the big movies got their own stories to tell. How Bumblebee met an unassuming Hailee Steinfeld and how Professor X ended up in the wheelchair and how Silent Bob met Jay and why is Indy 2 set before Indy 1? These are the questions that get answered!

Plus, a new IMDb game, this one all about the Top Four... and paying off the summer, finally, the 2021 edition of DAVESPLOSION! 

Finally, all the news you need to know about the next episode, coming Friday, 8p Eastern, 5p Pacific... The Deucecast Movie Show Episode 500.

Episode 498: Cinematic Inspiration

The human world is definitely a mess, and life at the Deucecast is better than anything they got out dere... so come let us inspire you!


Mikey, d$, and the vaunted and legendary icon #TwitterlessDrEarl are here to bring you the some of the most inspiring films we could find, movies that lift us up, make us happy, pump us with energy and a will to live.  A little bit of vim, and a lot of vigor.

And somewhere along the way, the party is crashed by Friend of the Show Scotty Ryfun, who just randomly pops in to say hello, and ends up sticking around to give his own list!

Also discussed along the way... the career of Chris Makepeace... Mikey working on his fitness... d$ runs fast... love for Olympia Dukakis... behind the scenes on Flight 93... Eddie & Steve... more Malick from #TwitterlessDrEarl...

Episode 497: The Tourney of American Treasures

The big 5-0-0 approaches, but there are still movie discussions to be had before then! On the 497th excursion into podcast mediocrity, Dave, Mikey, and #TwitterlessDrEarl chat a bit, then get to Birthday Movies -- Sully is 5 years old! Wicker Park is 15 years old! And somehow the math is off, and The Shawshank Redemption is... 27 years old?

Then, we find the next movie role to make the Big Bracket... and it's a intertwined battle of two American treasures, one being K Costner and the other being M Keaton.

From Birdman to Johnny Dangerously to Eliot Ness to Roy McAvoy, some of our favorite movies and movie characters do battle, plus a great conversation on the legacy of Keaton's Batman, and Peak Whitney.

Episode 496: Actors We Miss

The Deucecast Crew, including Mikey and Dave, sans #TwitterlessDrEarl (who is spending time earning his minor is podiatry instead of being on this episode) love movies and the actors in them, and felt it was high time to pay tribute to those who have since departed this Mortal Coil... and to give the proper nod to the dead and buried, the Spawn of Scott Ryfun, that being Lil G, the pride of TyTy, joins the show for a look at the ones we miss!

First up, remembering Chadwick Boseman, as we look at one year since he left us.

Then, a rousing round of The Dead Actor Rotten Tomatoes game... which movies are fresh, which are rotten?

Then a look at the faves of the crew, as we discuss actors who have passed in recent (and not so recent) years, and the movies they featured in, from "Skin Deep" to "Moneyball" to "The Philadelphia Story" to which "The Vanishing" is awesome and which one sucks.

Plus, an update on Mikey's 365 Films in a Year pursuit.
