DCMS Classic Episode 300

As Mikey, d$, and #XLessDrEarl get set for Episode 600, the Deucecast Movie Show is releasing a series of "milestone" episodes, including the first ReFlicktions ep (#130) last week, and this week, Episode 300. 

Aside from the RetroZap Podcasting Network bumper being taken off the front, and the stinger added to the end, the episode itself is here in it's entirety, as it was released on October 25th, 2017.

Here are the original notes (and the original post): 

After many years and many late nights, Mikey, Pinky and Dave ring in the 300th episode of The Deucecast Movie Show.  First, the guys say hello to Producer Shawn and Lady Pinky (and then bye, as they leave quickly), and invite in Friend of the Show Wit Stillman Fan, Film Historian, Terrance Malick Apologist, Brie Fan (Allison, Larsen & Cheese) and World Renowned Proctimologist Dr Earl...

And then, the Cavalcade of Stars begins!

Shazbazzar, co-host of the TechnoRetro Dads podcast, joins the crew with some of his favorite films, including the original animated Lord of the Rings film, WarGames and the dangerous, unaccountable teenagers from the 1980s.  Plus, the first ever mention of "Rock & Rule".

When Remodeling Clay finally gets on the line, the gang plays an old school game of "Reel or Unreel", aka, "Faux or Show".  Plus an update on Clay's favorite films and a few documentary recommendations that we all have to see.

The Retrozap dot com Podcasting Network Podfather Retro Joe then comes on to discuss some of his favorite films, including Army of Darkness, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, and Ghostbusters.  Plus a discussion on Patriots Day, which took place around Joe's neck of the woods.  And with Retro Joe, a great round of Box Office Mojo on "Third Films in a Series".

To wrap up the Cavalcade of Stars, Jennifer Kaufman brings up some of her favorites she's seen this year, with Spotlight, A Fish Called Wanda and more.

Pinky then riffs on an assigned film, "Audition", one of those "Most disturbing movies ever made!"  More crap on Superman III and then, a throwback to an early sponsor of the show, Real Men of Genius.

To you, the listener and film fan, thanks so much for downloading, listening, and being a fan!

Episode 599: The Final 9 Roles

It took over 12 years to get here, but here we are.  Dave, Mikey, and #XLessDrEarl are at the penultimate episode of an episode that feels bigger than 500.  A hundred eps bigger, as a matter of fact...

This is Episode 599.

As the Big Bracket finally takes shape, there are 27 movie roles that will vie for the title of "Most Iconic Movie Role of All Time" -- from Indiana Jones to Sally Albright to Derek Zoolander to James Bond and more... but we don't need 27. We need 36.

And to fill the final 9 roles, we've asked a podcasting legend, the one, the only Geek Out Loud's Steve Glosson to join the show and discuss.

With over 40 iconic movie roles in play, most will be eliminated outright, as round by round, more and more famous legendary names are dispensed, tossed aside like Mikey tosses aside Star Wars now...

Ethan Hunt gets a final shot... Harry Potter hopes to work some magic... Lord of the Rings has several nominees... Keanu Reeves has two up for debate... familiar names, previous losers like Carl Spackler, Freddy Krueger, and Kermit the Frog try once more.

And at the end of the episode, only 9 remain. The Final 9.

Episode 598: Recasting the Avengers

As the summer comes to a close, so does 2023 edition, and the final edition of #FanBoySummer this year (and possibly for a while), Dave, Mikey, and #XLessDrEarl welcome back one of the show faves -- Straight Outta Iowa, it's Aussie Nate!

First, a quick catch-up on Nate, then a rousing round of Denzel... where #XLessDrEarl goes straight for the jugular in his ruthless ambition to win.

Then, Aussie Nate instructs the group on the topic for the day. Something something about recasting the main Avengers - Tony Stark, Cap, Nat, Hawkeye, Thor, and Hulk - and doing it per decade but keeping one of the originals that doesn't count for the 2000s but then in order so like the 90s first then the 80s then back to the 2000s and whatever. 

As you'll hear, Mikey screwed up all the instructions. Either way, it makes for a delightful conversation, one that ends with quick chatter on the Star Wars Holiday Special screening from the weekend, mad props to Friend of the Show Burgeydoodle for his big win, and much more random conversation.

Episode 597: The Odd ReFlicktions Couple

 One week remains in the 2nd annual #FanBoySummer, and we'll take that week next go 'round with our friend Aussie Nate... but until then, we have to talk about the movies... nay, ReFlicked upon the movies we've seen in the last few weeks.

Dave, Mikey, and #XLessDrEarl jump right in with Mikey discussing a handful of older films from Pacino and Hoffman... Nic Cage's upcoming awesome crap... and his new-to-him laserdisc collection... #XLessDrEarl is full of pretention this episode, with French Freedom films... movies straight out of ISIS... and some Malick inspiration... and d$ laments about how badly Gal Gadot's non-super hero career is going... a TriviaHD documentary... and another Amy Adams flick crossed off the list.

And of course, all the latest, including a solid liking for Blue Beetle... praise for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem... some Haunted Mansion darkness... and much more, of course...

Then, a round of Reel or Unreal, as the crew tries to guess the names of really bad films few people have heard of.

Finally, a great look at the year in film 1988.  Kaufman gives her reasons for picking this topic, and everyone gives their favorite films from that year including vintage Eddie Murphy... all the actors who were up for the legendary role Bob Hoskins got... the sad  tale of "Yep Yep Yep"... a shout out to Garrison's fave film... Seagal, Ernest, and Chevy all get love from Mikey... and Dr Earl gets pretentious, of course.

Episode 594: The Mike v Dave Tourney

 With episode 600 looming, the Big Bracket is getting full... and Dave, Mikey, and #TwitterlessDrEarl welcome back Friend of the Show Clay Shaver, and he brings a special tournament for the crew to push through.

This time around, to determine which role will join the greats like Prince Akeem, Castor Troy, Indiana Jones, Anna Scott, and not Ethan Hunt, this time, there are 16 "DAVE" or "DAVIDs" from the movies, and 16 "MIKE", "MIKEY", or "MICHAELs to vote on. 

Plus, the guys catch up with the latest with Clay in the Mitt of Michigan, his thoughts on the "Barbie" phenomenon, and lots of  talk about Robert Romanus.  Lots of talk.  And even some Boner Stabone. 

You just gotta listen.

And then, Dave pays off the 1st annual Dave'Stalgia, with older films assigned by friends of the show like Burgeydoodle, Roth from Wyoming, Lil G, from hosts Mikey and #TwitterlessDrEarl and a last minute addition from Clay himself.

Episode 587: Recasting

After two weeks of First Timers in both FanBoySummer and on the show totally, it was time to bring a veteran to guest star -- as in, one time last summer (Ep 539) but now, the host of the Food for Thought Podcast, Melissa Reagan is here!

Her topic of choice for Dave, Mikey, and #TwitterlessDrEarl is to recast... recast what, you ask? Dealer's choice. Find a major role, put someone else there and see if it fits.

First up, the Birthday Movies, as we come to grips with the fact Ocean's 8 is five years old, Black Dog is 25 years old, The Great Outdoors is 35 years old and even more.

Then a new twist on an old game, Simple Summer Trivia, as all indication points to another big win for Mikey, who usually dominates in this game. 

And finally, what happens if River Phoenix becomes Han Solo?  And Harrison Ford plays Sam Spade?  We get a rundown of Hilary Swank's career post Oscar, and what manic personality should have played Genie in 2019's Aladdin remake? 

Some recasting roles at the time the actors were hot, and some recasting by taking modern actors and placing them into classic films - all makes for a good discussion.  And finally, somewhere d$ can drivel about his Snape complaints. 

Plus a bonus convo, with some real life "almost happened" roles from certain actors, including an unlikely pair that was considered for La La Land, a total near disaster for Forrest Gump, who could beat Viggo as Aragorn, and what if... just what if ScarJo wasn't the right person for Black Widow...

Episode 586: The Soundtracks List

It's the 2nd week of FanboySummer and Mikey, d$, and #TwitterlessDrEarl invite in long time listener, first time on the show, host of the Harmanny Music Education Podcast the one and only Mr. Craig Holland... er, Harmann! 

After a little chit-chat, finding out about the podcast itself, the group plays the Soundtrack Sales game (boring title, exciting action) and #TwitterlessDrEarl likely never full understands it. 

Then, the guys give their favorite Top Five Movie soundtracks, each with their own stories and thoughts, from movies seen at Panama City Beach to lifelong friendships made in defunct movie theaters to pining for girls who never pined back to a love for Rowlf the Dogg. 

Also... Kenny Loggins soundtrack songs... Dr Earl talks about "Footin"... matching Jewel with Batman... and Mikey gets verklempt... 

Plus the real truth about NRG and the band Kick Axe

Episode 585: Comedic Actors, Dramatic Roles

 After a successful summer last year, a summer of the fans, a... FanboySummer if you will, we decided if it worked once, it's gotta work again, right?  I mean, look at Zoolander Too!  And Blair Witch Project! And Thor Love & Thunder! If we struck gold once, it's bound to happen again!

Thus, FanboySummer Part Deuce! 

And in our first of 9 Fanboy Summer eps, we welcome in Jonathan Hile of the Captain's Log & Lightsaber Podcast!  

Up first, the return of the DbIMDb game, taking on the algorithm of what IMDb thinks is most popular.  A little catch up with Hile, discussing the podcast, and then a dive into the Top 5 topic...

Tonight, a take on actors known for their comedic chops who give incredible dramatic turns in certain roles - be it a serious legacy only to turn to comedy, then back to drama (Leslie Nielsen) or someone who had been dabbling in the drama all along, but was only really known for their comedy prowess (Robin Williams) or even someone finding their footing in Hollywood (Jennifer Aniston) and even more.

Stick around for a great little bit on Adventures by Disney because why not.

Episode 583: The Movie Role Duo Mega Tourney

As the Big Bracket draws near, with Episode 600 a mere 17 episodes and a summer season away, it's time to crank up the entries... and what better way to bring in a plethora, a cornucopia, a tundra if you will of iconic roles, than to have a Mega Tourney with over 60 famous and beloved characters from cinema and film and movie flicker shows...

But to do something so big, we have to have a big roster of Friends of the Show... Spawn of Ryfun, Lil G, Garrison.... the father of the Spawn of Ryfun, that being Scotty RyRy... and the pride of The Beaches of Cheyenne, Roth from Wyoming.

Together with d$, Mikey, and #TwitterlessDrEarl, they dive in to figure out the battles between View Askew and Aurora, Illinois... between dimwits and stoners... between classic duos both odd and slapsticky... 

And Garrison makes a surprise turn in his quest to see Ethan Hunt win the whole tourney. A betrayal if you will.

And who knew these guys loved Twilight so much?
