Episode 605: The Prestige of Nolan

 With David Fincher releasing a new (and super good) film this week, "The Killer", the Deucecast thought it would be a great time to pay homage to one of our country's greatest living directors - Christophe Nolan.  (We aren't sure everyone had time to see Fincher's latest, so we swerved)

And what better way than to call up our friend of the show, the Podawan himself, The Pride of Smyrna, Georgia, young Garrison Ryfun!

First, a little round of WORD UP!, where the guys fill in the blanks on the most important topics of the day -- the failure of The Marvels, the success of Five Nights at Freddys and what to think about TayTay's concert film.

Also, does #XlessDrEarl really want to see "It's a Wonderful Knife?"

And then, the guys do a ranking of their top 10 (out of the 12) theatrical releases of Chris Nolan movies... from the most well known -- Inception, Interstellar, Dunkrik -- to the less known -- Following -- to the forgotten gems -- The Prestige, Insomnia -- and of course, Big Oppy.

Episode 604: The November 80s

The holiday season is here, and we are one week out from our annual DeuceGiving episode, which kicks off two months of annual eps - from Christmas gifts to Kaufman's yearly seasonal offerings to Top Tens of Not the Year to Lumps of Coal and much more.

But that's later.

Two years ago, we talked best November movies of the 2000s (episode 505). Last year, we took it back a decade and did the best of the 90s (episode 558), and this time around, the 1980s take center stage, as Mikey, d$, and special guest, "The Rocket Man" Uncle Brian, gives their fave films released in any year of the 80s, but only within the month of November.

First up, Uncle Brian reveals one of his hobbies -- the first time in 604 eps that Blinko has ever been discussed. Then, a miserable, total failure round of Box Office Mojo -- no seriously, the performance is awful and must be acknowledged as such.

Then, the Top Five 80s November films -- a little Trek... some Bugs... Charlie Sheen and a weird car... Chuck Norris rescues POWs... M'Lynn is wearing a brown football helmet... ending the Cold War... and a somewhat real discussion on the career and films of one Deucecast legend, Jim Varney, aka, "Ernest".

Films discussed, and where to find them streaming:

  • Back to the Future Part II (Peacock Premium)
  • The B.R.A.T. Patrol (unavailable)
  • Ernest Saves Christmas (Disney+)
