Episode LXXXV: Podcasts of the Southern Wild

Its a very special episode of The Deucecast... no, there are no life lessons to be taught--unless you want to learn how apartheid and Keyser Soze go together--nay, its a special episode because for the first time ever, former co-host Matt joins The Deucecast not from The Noog... but in studio, live!

He left our show as a permanent host waaaaaay back in The Deucecast Episode XXXII: The Podcast for Spock, and has joined us via phone/Skype every now and again, but today, is actually live and in the flesh for a thrilling episode that is so good, it will be possibly one of the few Deucecast episodes worthy of submission to the Daytime Emmys! Congrats guys!

Not sure why Bud Light didn't do a "Real
American Hero" spot on Mr. Drummond.
The guys kick off a fun little tasting with some Bug Juice, or as Mikey puts it, "melted down Otter Pops"... Matt discusses his time away, his move to Missouri, MLK, Jr. Day, celebrating MLK, Jr. with Django Unchained... and becoming a hunter (or an extra from the original Red Dawn)... Mikey dishes on his sick kid... Justin Timberlake new music in Mike's Surprisingly Passable Music Minute... and d$ brings up his Redbox weeklong extravaganza...

We lost a great American hero this week, and The Deucecast pays tribute to one of our own, Conrad Bain, in a deeply moving and personal obituary in The Buried Treasure... and because of Matt's return, we dig up an oldie but a goody, Faux or Show for our game time.  Greg Evigan would be proud.  As would Dack Rambo.

The Big Three was a little more difficult than the guys thought it would be, as the topic of Best Supporting Actress and Actor Oscar winners are brought up and ranked, including classics from Kim Basinger in L.A. Confidential... Cate Blanchett in The Aviator [Blu-ray]... Joe Pesci in GoodFellas... some Inglourious Basterds... and we answer the question--"Who is Keyser Soze?"  A question that is answered many times.... many times... over the podcast.

Matt's back.  Thankfully, he's on our side. Incidentally,
he dropped this outfit in his back yard and hasn't seen it
in two weeks.
Other topics discussed include a bevy of release dates for upcoming Disney films... Machete Kills... a TV premiere date for Under the Dome... Mumblecore films... a thrilling Gary Busey Moment (perhaps the first of many)... Star Wars director chaos... we discuss the Golden Globes and Jodie Foster's ramble... and...

The Return of The Seagal Watch.  (cue drums)

Mikey dishes on his assigned movie, "Juice", and what a sad loss it was when Tupac left us... and we review many other films seen, including "Dredd"... "Zero Dark Thirty"... "The Company Men"... "Looper"... "Beasts of the Southern Wild"... "Moonrise Kingdom"... "The Watch"... and d$'s assigned film, "Hugo".  

And... Demi. 

Next week, d$ reviews his assigned movie, "Blue Valentine", while The Big Three takes on favorite Oscar winning screenplays, both adapted and original... Mikey has more crap for us to suck up and take... and more Disney news, TV news, movie reviews and perhaps... more Busey?   That's all on The Deucecast Episode LXXXVI: Silver Linings Podcast
