Episode 568: The Not 2022 Top Ten (Here We Go Again!)

The review of 2022 film is in full swing, but first there is the annual look back at the movies seen last year that were NOT FROM last year. Its the Not 2022 Top Ten, where we highlight films worthy of a second discussion because they just impacted us so much.

Dave, Mikey, and #TwitterlessDrEarl welcome in Friend of the Show, streaming live from the booming metropolis somewhere in Bainbridge, Wyoming, that is one Jacob "Roth from Wyoming."

Together, the foursome discuss their top ten faves of the year from all over the place, as far back as 1931 all the way through the 60s and 70s and in the 00s -- O Russell talk... Mamet chatter... Pierce Brosnan's singing voice... classic Christmas movies set in Budapest... Tarantino's faves... assassination conspiracies... Peckinpah and the violence of the west... John Wayne and the hilarity of the west... d$ and Roth fawn over Paulette Goddard... The Seventh Seal does NOT feature Demi Moore...

And much more in this good time of an episode...

Rian Johnson returning with another Benoit Blanc's mystery skills... some of the best animation of the year... Bond's music... Christian Bale in the Civil War and Ric Flair in a wrestling ring... creepy dolls... Brendan Fraser's comeback... the latest Baumbach...

And a longer than usual discussion on Babylon, how Mikey loved it, how Earl hasn't seen it, and how Dave cannot decide what he thinks.

Episode 566: The Way of the ReFlicktions (Part 1)

Every January, the Deucecast trio jumps into ReFlicktions after what is likely a 6-7 week break from ReFlickting movies... and that means a mondo sized ReFlicktions episode - but for your listening pleasure...

...and because not only is Mikey leaving town for the weekend, but d$ has weekend commitments as well, the 2.5 hour episode is now going to be 2 episodes!

First... the last vestiges of Christmas cinema, with horror Santas and returns to Indiana and Dickens and England.

Then, diving into the non-holiday stuff, #TwitterlessDrEarl gets pretentions with Inerratu and classic with Bing... d$ discusses the controversy on Strange World... Mikey hates Criminals named Emily but loves blue Na'vi... and a movie that we all forgot - Memory.

Check out the films we discussed on the episode (and where they are streaming) and come back next week for the likes of Glass Onion, new Baumbach, Will Smith's new slave epic, Brendan Fraser's comeback and a long discussion on the merits (and debauchery) of Babylon.

Episode 565: 2022 Surprise and Delights

 Each year, there are the movies that perhaps are not on Mikey's, Dave's, or #TwitterlessDrEarl's top fives or top tens, but they are still movies that surprised everyone... and delighted everyone... unexpected pleasant moviegoing experiences if you will.  

And every year, Friend of the Show, Miss Independent Jeremy Burgess joins up for the episode, giving his own surprises and delights.

First up, Burgess is assigned his annual Burgentine's Day -- sure, it's early, but Home Goods had V-Day stuff up before Christmas, so we feel okay about this. 

Then, the guys jump right into their Top 5 films that they went into unsure about, perhaps with little to no expectations... and came out of surprised at how delighted they found the movies... and delighted at the surprise of how delightful it was. Or something. 

And they even dig a little into Oscar odds... some newer horror gets lots of love on the show... a little hot Brendan Fraser talk... some Austin Butler chatter... Michael's Baygasm... and even get a little Shakespearean. Sort of.

And a "Don't Die" update!!

Episode 564: The 2022 Lumps of Coal

Like the Masters, its a tradition unlike any other... the Annual Lumps of Coal episode.

Out of the dozens of films The Deucecast Movie Show loved, out of the hundreds of movies the Deucecast Movie Show liked... there are a handful of movies -- or in #TwitterlessDrEarl's case, tropes, patterns, directors and the like -- that just didn't land... or maybe landed with a crash and burn in a bad way.

Hopping straight to it, the guys rail on how hard it is to muck up a great cast and make a terrible movie (yet Hollywood finds a way)... when the crimes of the future becomes a crime in making a film in the present... when Jessica Chastain tries 355, but delivers a Zero... when Benaffleck Ana de Armes' his marriage... the Jim Cameron movie that won't end... and Zac Efron flames out big time.

Plus, this year's winner of "The Movie that Broke Mikey".

Films discussed in this week's episode, and where to find them at the time of recording:

  • Avatar Way of Water (in theaters)
  • Blacklight (Amazon Prime; Paramount+; EPIX)
  • Crimes of the Future (Hulu)

Episode 563: Christmas Gifts 2022

It's that time of year once again... The Cheetah Girls have returned to spread their vocals, their mirth, and their marshmallow world all up in your earholes as its the Annual Christmas Gift Episode -- the one where we, that being Mikey, d$, #TwitterlessDrEarl, and Christmas Gift perennial Lil G Spawn of Ryfun Pride of Waycross Garrison, give out the best movie related gifts to the studios, to the people, to the actors, and even some to each other.

The theme music rolls and the festive festives for the entire show!

First up... a spoiler free -- then a spoiler filled -- review of "Avatar: The Way of Water"

NOTE: We talk spoilers from 14:42 to around 21:50 of the episode, so if you haven't seen it or don't want to hear, then heed the time stamp accordingly

Then the gifts... to Tom Cruise! To Netflix execs! To Bob Iger! To Michael Giacchino! And the creation of a brand new, free, ad-supported streaming service that you should subscribe to!

Episode 562: Have Yourself a Kaufman Little Christmas

The Christmas season is in full swing, with our series of Christmas episodes finally set to begin -- big props to Aussie Nate, Roth from Wyoming, and Lil G for hosting last week...

But the real losers are back in the saddle, with Mikey and d$ taking control again -- #TwitterlessDrEarl off on assignment doing Doctors with Some Borders (because he's pretentious)

It's becoming an annual tradition - one that we find out isn't as old as we thought, but still will be from here anyway - and that is bringing former Delightful Life podcast host and Disney Nerds podcast co-host and sort of blogger and avid hockey fan and mom of 3-7, though we aren't sure, and the greatest voice on our show, one Jennifer Kaufman!

A little bit of chit chat and catching up -- including the movies she's seen, like "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever"
, and Mikey's review of "Christmas Bloody Christmas" and d$'s take on "Violent Night", and a defense of "Spirited" -- they dive into a jolly round of Dylan McDermott Mulroney, starring Candace, Danica, and Lacey! 

Then the Top Five of the Week... the trio's fave non-Christmas movies to watch at Christmas, with some films possibly being a Christmas movie, some films having parts of Christmas in it, and some having nothing to do with Christmas whatsoever.

Plus, the incredible career of Shane Black... the graduation of Young Garrison Ryfun... fantasy movies in the holidays... and much more! 

Wednesday, December 7, 2022

Episode 561: 3 Podcast Men (the guest host show)

While Mikey has missed maybe 2 episodes, and d$ has missed maybe 3 eps, and #TwitterlessDrEarl has only been a regular for the last few hundred eps, now for the first time in almost 12 years and 560 episodes, neither Mikey nor d$ nor #TwitterlessDrEarl are on the show itself.

Instead, three show icons, three show legends, three show fan favorites, three show regulars take over the show... Aussie Nate, Spawn of Ryfun, aka, Lil G, and Roth from Wyoming pick up the reigns as the regular guys are out of action for the week (re: d$ is in Orlando and Mikey is watching movies and #TwitterlessDrEarl just likes the weekend off) and after firing off a quick round of Rotten Tomatoes, they dive right into Top Five Recasted Characters.

From a super spy to a dark knight to a space smuggler to Old Kris Kringle himself, Lil G, Aussie, and Roth serve up their fave characters that were redone even better.

Also, Garrison has never seen Christmas Vacation, and hates Ernest movies, so he will likely not ever be asked back.

  • Batman Forever (the one with Val, but not the nipple suit) - HBO Max
  • Becoming Bond - Hulu
  • Casino Royale - Netflix

Also, catching up with Upon a Star Jenn -- latest films she's seen, her newest podcasting venture, and just Amish life in general.

Deucecast Classic: The Political Movies

This week, we drop an episode that premiered on November 6th, 2016, including d$, Mikey, #TwitterlessDrEarl, and Pinky (!) -- these are the original show notes from that episode, or find it here

It's election season here in 'Merica, and to recognize, Mikey, Pinky, and Dave are talking favorite political films!  And who better to bring in to discuss such movies than the President of the Pretentious
Corner, the Witt Stillman fan, the Film Historian, the Terence Malick Apologist himself, the honorable Dr Earl.

First up, a round of The Ryan Phillippe Game, where you have to name all the films of a certain actor like Kurt Russell, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Owen Wilson or Charlize Theron and more.

And then... fave political movies!   People trying to win an election!  Leaders trying to stop a war!  Superheroes trying to stay on the right side of America!  Movies like Lincoln!  Argo!  Wag the Dog! Captain America Civil War!

A great recommendation for the movie "Failsafe" as well, if you can find it, and for "Eye in the Sky", which is now available on Netflix.

So enjoy the list of political movies and tell us your own faves!

DISCLAIMER:  There isn't any talk of the current political climate, nor it's candidates, its merely a list of favorite films involving not just government, but anything where a leadership plays a game of hierarchy for positioning...

Episode 557: The Jack vs Bobby D Tourney

On the way to Episode 600, in which The Deucecast Movie Show will finally payoff it's Big Bracket of Movie Roles.. but there are still spots to fill.  So tonight, the guys match up two Hollywood Legendary Heavyweights -- Jack Nicholson roles vs Robert DeNiro roles.

First up, Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl bring in "The Pride of Noonan", aka, Lil G, aka, Spawn of Ryfun, aka, Garrison to discuss the characters that Jack and Bobby brought to life.

After a quick look back to 2012 when Disney and Lucasfilm made a small agreement, then they dive into the bracket... and they even have to call in help.

Follow along as Jack Torrence takes on James Dale, Garrett Breedlove vs George Hanson, Frank Costello vs Will Randal, Warren Schmidt vs Harry Sanborn, Jake Gittes vs Bill Rorish, Col Jessup vs Melvin Udell, The Joker vs Daryl Van Horne, Randal McMurphy vs Charley Partanna

Only one can make it through.

Episode 555: The Most Inept Movie Bad Guys

When you get five and half-a-hunna episodes into your podcast, including 12 Halloween Episodes, you can't always do "Best Villains"... sometimes you have to go the other way, and do the "Worst Villains", or more specifically, "The Most Incompetent Bad Guys" in films.

October birthday movies up first, as Blade Runner 2049 celebrates its 5th birthday, The Might Ducks has it's 30th birthday, and The Manchurian Candidate turns 60 (RIP Angela Lansbury!)

Guest of the night, Miss Independent himself Jeremy Burgess joins the show to fill us on on Dust on the VCR as well as the update on the upcoming film Don't Die.

Then, Mikey, Dave, #TwitterlessDrEarl, and Burgess give their own list of greatly terrible bad guys in film -- written well but played poorly, or the storyline they are given is terrible, or flashy but totally ineffective for any number of reasons.

Finally, MikeTober #9 commences, with Mikey giving his recap and ranking of "Speak No Evil", "Dog Soldiers", "The Vanishing" and some other movie I can't remember but he didn't like as much. 

Movies mentioned in the show, and where they are streaming at time of recording:

  • Attack of the Killer Tomatoes (TubiTV)

Episode 554: The Best Henchmen in Film

Halloween is quickly approaching as the fall rolls on, and the spooky movies are already on deck for both Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl. But before they get to Halloween proper (and the annual Halloween ep coming in a few weeks), they'll spend a little time with some of the other mean, evil, and sometimes incompetent characters of film.

First, quick chatter about recent movies taken in, including "Amsterdam" and "Werewolf By Night", then a Rotten Tomatoes game featuring the good, and bad, movies made by the master of horror fiction, Stephen King himself. Everything from the acclaimed like "Stand by Me" to the forgotten, like "The Mangler".  Everyone figures Mikey will win this one too. Right? Right.

Then, the Henchmen. Those who don't run the show, but do the bidding of those movie villains who do. Then again, sometimes the Henchmen in question are really the ones in charge. Either way, each of the Deucecast trio brings their own favorites to their lists.

Plus... the short career of Alexander Godunov and a
multiverse world where Harrison Ford is a dentist on Friends and Tom Selleck wields a whip.

Episode 553: Glosson is So Extra

Due to a number of factors including a hurricane that kept d$'s vacation totally up in the air and a Sunday night unavailability and Monday night plans that were set then were squashed and of course, the fallback plan... an ep of The Deucecast Extra, all for your listening ears.

While Dave makes his way back from Orlando, Mikey, and #TwitterlessDrEarl welcome in the Pride of Eatonton, the Spawn of Ryfun, Lil G in the hizzy, along with Wyoming's Best Hope, J Roth.

The first hour consists of a look at Ep 6 of "She-Hulk: Attorney at Law", in which we determine that Mikey hates Baltimore... and then some MCU News, with the Deadpool teaser.

Then, "Andor" episodes 1-3, with all the characters and themes and Blade Runner vibes throughout.

THEN... about 54 minutes in...

Steve Glosson.

The man, the myth, the legend calls in and gives his take on Andor... Thor and Thor Love & Thunder... and weird aliens in Star Wars and Good Will Hunting and Fantastic Four and The Eternals and Dibello the Lawyer and classic Steve Glosson and The Big Honkin Show's return and Rise of Skywalker and Michael hates "Willow" and "Blade" and Superman II's Donnor Cut vs Donnor party

Episode 552: The Franchise Role Tournament

Because we are on the downslope to Episode 600, and we've done 21 of these and need to do at least 11 more... its TOURNEY TIME.

Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl are ready to put another movie role into the Big Bracket, to figure out what the greatest movie role of all time could be.  This episode, it's picking out the greatest roles from franchises.

The rules.... must be a character who appears in at least FOUR theatrical releases, no matter how brief, and can be played by the same or different actors.  Star Wars and Marvel are intentionally excluded, with one brief exception. And for the first time in any DCMS Tourney... Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings make their appearances. 

To do such a big event, the Deucecast trio need help -- enter the Pride of Buford Georgia, Spawn of Ryfun himself, Lil G, and Friend of the Show Roth from Wyoming, picking up last minute invites to be a part of the madness. 

Transformers go tet a tet... the wizarding world has a rumble, as does Middle Earth... action stars attempt to keep it in the family, while dynamic duos take on crime stopping wiseacres... will G's push for Ethan Hunt finally be successful?  What happens when two of Mikey's icons face off?  Is it fair to make #TwitterlessDrEarl decide a match from movies he's never seen?  Probably not, but here we go!

Episode 550: The Summer Winners and Losers

The fall is almost here, and if you haven't heard the Fall Movie Preview from last week, go back and listen.  But as the Deucecast boys -- Mikey, d$, and #TwitterlessDrEarl -- puts the summer to bed, first with the end of #FanboySummer and the look ahead to the new season, one final nail in the summer comes in the form of the Winners & Losers of the Summer Movie Season.

First up, a little Box Office Mojo, figuring out which movies crossed that magical $100,000,000 number (also the number d$ owed on Discover Card circa 2001). 

Then, five winners and five losers from each Mikey and Dave, while Earl can proclaim all the winners, his kind heart only allows him to discuss three losers. 

We also discuss the problem with Kevin Hart... the problem with Audrey Plaza... the BIG problem wit that new demon show... the problem with 2022 Tom Hanks... love for Zac Efron... being impressed with Elvis... more Cha Cha love... the movie that broke Mikey... how a stupid cartoon might be the smartest thing on TV... missing girlfriends and catfishing... and Tom Cruise being the most best Tom Cruiseiest ever...
