Episode 537: Non Musical Music Movies

It's Week 2 of #FanboySummer, and Dave, Mikey, and #TwitterlessDrEarl seek to improve the show by bringing on people better than all of us... and when its about music, when its about movie music, when its about movies about music but aren't musicals, what better person to bring in than Mississippi's Finest, guitar player and worship leader and podcast host and Discord Datcord fellow Matt Mink, aka, The Mink Panther.



The fellas talk about Matt and where he's from, where he's going, and why he loves music. The discussion leads to some of the group's fave music influences, including some old country like The Statlers, Jamie Johnson, and more Kentucky Headhunters than any podcast has talked about in recent memory. And, of course, the Forrester Sisters, because of course.

Then, the return of Birthday Movies, including the absolute murderer's row of films released in June 1987, then the Top Five movies about music, but are not actually musicals... films with the beloved Anna Kendrick and films with Pixar and films with a non Danielsan Ralph Macchio but not the early Britney Spears and films with Michelle Pfieffer on a piano and films with George Clooney lip syncing and a Fountains of Wayne shout out and d$ in touch with his heritage on a golf cart in Cancun and of course, Christopher Guest.

And a ton more. Stick around in the aftershow segment to hear who gets #3 on FanboySummer!

The movies discussed, and where streaming at the time of recording:

  • Amadeus (for rental)
  • The Commitments (for rental)
  • Coco (Disney+)
  • Control (TubiTV; FreeVee)

First, memories of the original Top Gun... where did everyone see it?  How young, and how many zippers were on those parachute pants?

Then, the top five movies with aerial battles, mostly featuring planes, but some with helicopters, even some fists, and a stealth fighter named Firefox.

Mikey has the Zoa on tap... Memphis Belle's true mission... the Time Vortex... Ken Olin gets a namedrop... USA Night Flight... the badness of Pearl Harbor... the goodness of Dunkirk... Mikey's weird voices... ID4 mistakes... AirWolf vs Blue Thunder, featuring Riptide... All the Iron Eagles...

BATTER UP!  Baseball has begun, 30 games into the season, Dave's team, Baltimore, is already out of it, Mikey doesn't care because Dallas Cowboys play the foosball and not the baseball, and #TwitterlessDrEarl is out and about, saving lives, delivering babies and politicking.

First up, the return of WORD UP! to the show -- discussions on Doctor Strange, on Netflix failings, and Top Gun Maverick prospects. Plus, some other random chitter chatter before the  tourney takes over.

Roth, Mikey, and d$ set out to determine the best modern day baseball role in movie history, with everything from Wild Thing to a double dose of Costner to Tony Danza and Tom Selleck and Bernie Mac and a few chicks even make the final line up. Great discussion, great film memories.

Episode 531: Actors Who Did the Footballs

Now that all the 2021 lists are over, and the ReFlicktions for last month have been ReFlickted, its time to finally move forward with new lists, new topics, and old movies to discuss!

In honor of this year's NFL Draft, which just happened and to which likely 2 of the 3 Deucecasters (Dave, Mikey, Dr Earl) have no idea who was #1 (Minka Kelly, maybe?), it's time to talk a little football acting.

First up, a little May the Fourth Be With You chitchat, then the return of The Rotten Tomatoes Game (and the first mention of Knute Rocke in 531 eps), then, this week's Top Five... Football Players (college and pro) who turned to acting. Some cameo roles (as in, why Brett Favre is in Miami) and Bernie Casey gets a nod and a few names Rock multiple lists and even Burt Reynolds shows up.

Plus... both Robert Urich and John Metuszak might be making their debut mentions. Maybe. Unclear.

Episode 529: The 2022 Deucies and Top 10 of 2021

It's a tradition unlike any other... no, not the Masters, nor the Kentucky Derby, nor the BAFTAs... nope, it's the Deucie Awards!

For the 9th consecutive year, including 8 years in a row and this one, the Deucecast Movie Show hosts compile a list of nominees to watch, consider, vote on, and finally award the proverbial Golden Deuce Academy Globe VIBE statue to any one - or many - of over 40 films nominated for 16 awards...

Will Jess Chastain take home the Deucie to match her Oscar?  Will Jason Isaacs get finally get some love after his tour de force on MASS?  Can Hans Zimmer take another step closer to a DEGOT? And will international films find themselves in the spotlight this year.

Along the way, Dave, Mikey, and #Twitterless Dr Earl count down their own individual lists of their favorite 10 from the previous year gone by... including films that only get on one list, like that Jesus music doc Dave loves... and movies that are on 67% of the lists, like Wes Anderson's latest quirkity cinema... or movies that are on various spots of all three lists, like PTA's newest masterpiece or maybe a web slingin' modern classic...

And shockingly, this ep comes in well under 2 hours.

Enjoy the show as we put a button on 2021!

Episode 528: Yippe Ki Yay Bruce Willis

Here at the Deucecast, we always remember our favorite actors and actresses, and when they step away, we give them props.

So when the family of Bruce Willis announced that Bruno himself would be retiring due to health issues, the Deucecast wanted to give our proper nod.

Hence, our Bruce Willis themed episode! Mikey and Dave are joined by Lil G Ryfun from Valdosta, GA, as the trio counts down their own favorite Bruce films.  Plus, lots of great discussions on the career and overall body of work.

Stick around for the extended stinger, as the show gets a drop-in by a former and future guest of the show, who only stops by to kick himself off of the show later.

Episode 526: The Spring Summer 2022 Preview

Episode 524: The REAL Best Picture Nominees 2002

The award season is on the fast track to the big one, the Academy Awards, and it was time to revisit some of the previous Oscar seasons... specifically, the Best Picture nominees from years gone by.



And to accomplish this feat of movie strength, Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl bring in Show Fave and Listener Roth from Wyoming!

First, a list of Birthday Movies -- including Logan turning five, and IN LIKE FLINT... my favourite movie! 

Then to add to the Best Picture nominees of 2002! 

Essentially... there were only five nominees for Best Picture. Within a decade, they would allow up to ten films to be nominated.  So it's our job to come up with our own lists of the other five that should have also been nominated... note: we CANNOT remove any of the existing films, we can only add to the list. 

And at the end of the show, the crew all submit one film each that should have been nominated, then a quick discussion on the final film, to come up with a Deuce Best Picture nominee list.

The existing nominees for the Best Picture category in 2003 (for movie year 2002) are Gangs of New York, The Hours, Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, The Pianist, and the year's big winner, Chicago... so the crew asks, "Did they get it right?"

This is the last of this part of the series for this year. Next February, we will pick back up with the Best Picture nominees of 2003 and continue through 2007.

Episode 523: The REAL Best Picture Nominees 2001

And at the end of the show, the crew all submit one film each that should have been nominated, then a quick discussion on the final film, to come up with a Deuce Best Picture nominee list.

The existing nominees are Gosford Park, In the Bedroom, Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Rings, and Moulin Rouge!, with A Beautiful Mind winning... so the crew asks, "Did they get it right?"

Finally, Jeremy gives his take on the assigned Burgentine's Day films...

Ep 522: The REAL Best Picture Nominees 2000

The award season is on the fast track to the big one, the Academy Awards, and it was time to revisit some of the previous Oscar seasons... specifically, the Best Picture nominees from years gone by.

And to accomplish this feat of movie strength, Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl bring in the Spawn of Big Scott, the pride of Valdosta Georgia, the Young Movie Wunderkind Lil G Garrison Ryfun... 

First, a quick run through of the SAG Awards (as the winners were announced shortly before the show began) then onto the 2001 Academy Awards, which cover the year 2000 in movies.

Essentially... there were only five nominees for Best Picture. Within a decade, they would allow up to ten films to be nominated.  So it's our job to come up with our own lists of the other five that should have also been nominated... note: we CANNOT remove any of the existing films, we can only add to the list. 

And at the end of the show, the crew all submit one film each that should have been nominated, then a quick discussion on the final film, to come up with a Deuce Best Picture nominee list.

The existing nominees are Chocolat, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon,  Erin Brockovich, Gladiator, and Traffic, with Gladiator winning... so the crew asks, "Did they get it right?"

Movies discussed:

  • Almost Famous (Hulu; Paramount+; Epix
  • American Psycho (HBO Max)
  • Best in Show (HBO Max)
  • Cast Away (TubiTV)
  • Chicken Run (Peacock Premium)
