Episode 165: April-May Preview

There are a handful of big films, and a few smaller ones, that are hitting theaters in the next 9 weeks, and the guys at the Deucecast Movie Show are here to tell you all about them.  Mikey is out this week, but helping to fill the gap is TechnoRetro Dad's co-host Shazbazzar!

Some of the previews that d$, Pinky and Shaz cover include Aloha, the new Owen Wilson/Emma Stone flick... Tom Hardy in Mad Max Fury Road... the potential for a wasted cast in Age of Adeline (with Harrison Ford!)... The Rock beating up an earthquake in San Andreas... and how Jennifer Aniston is the best FRIENDS actor out there.

Naturally, the guys also spend several minutes on Furious 7 and Avengers: Age of Ultron!

Plus, topics covered in random rabbitrails include why Pinky hates trailers... serious Jonah Hill vs serious James Franco... those kids in the Coke commercial at Six Flags and the movies during trailers... d$'s Titanic video tape story... why watching Unfriended might be like picked a scab... and a guilty pleasure love for Kevin James...

And, as you would expect the show to do, a quick shoutout to The Great Space Coaster... don't miss the ending tune!

All this and more in this week's episode of The Deucecast Movie Show!

Episode 164: (not) Live from New York, It's (not) Saturday Night!

Okay, not really live from New York, though it was recorded live from our studio in Birmingham... either way, it's another fun filled episode of The Deucecast Movie Show, where this week, we celebrate the end of the 40th season of Saturday Night Live by highlighting our favorite cast members and their movie careers.

But first, Mikey & d$ are in studio (Pinky joined later) with the foreign film lover and Terrance Malick Apologist Dr Earl, and for the first time, we welcome on the horn our friend and fellow podcaster Clay Shaver, host of the popular Remodeling Clay podcast.

Many topics discussed tonight, including how Baby: Secret of a Lost Legend turned 30 this month... exactly how much is riding on The Avengers: Age of Ultron for Marvel... will DC movies fall apart if Superman v Batman fails... and a deep discussion on why Bradley Cooper and Chris Pratt might be the biggest movie stars out there, and why Tom Cruise's movie stardom time has passed...

A rousing game of the newly named "Denzel Game" ensues, where we discuss much about that movie with Cameron Diaz and the sick little girl...

And finally, the topic at hand, with legends like Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Eddie Murphy are discussed, along with their career highs and lows, plus the likes of Ben Stiller, Tina Fey, Bill Heder and more... all in our "Favorite SNL Alumni" discussion.  Who has potential to be big from here on out, and how far has the star fallen for Mike Myers?  Find out in this show.

And next week, join us when we welcome in Shazbazzar to preview April and May's coming movies, with a rousing Furious 7 chat!!

Episode 163: The Rocky V Intermission

In this episode, the Deucecast Movie Show welcomes in Shotglass Digital poobah and Rocky Apologist, as well as Rebel Force Radio co-host Jimmy Mac!!

The Deucecast Movie Show prides itself on giving special attention to certain films, wrapping an entire episode around it, classic films like "North by Northwest" and "Seven Samurai" and "Dr Strangelove" and "Rocky V" and...

(insert record scratch sound here)

Wait, what?

That's right... that movie that compared to the other films in the franchise, is like the drunk uncle who the rest of the respectable family members keep locked in a bedroom during the Christmas Party... "Rocky V", where Sly Stallone brings back Rocky Balboa to be a destitute street fighter when Paulie is given financial responsibilities and screws everything up... where Rocky's son Robert ages 5 or 6 years in a matter of a few weeks of movie time... where the real ending had Rocky taking drastic measures but never happened... where Tommy Morrison might have died from AIDS... where us talking about it gives it more attention than it's gotten in a long time...

Also joining the discussion in this episode with a chime in here and there are friends of the show Jeremy and Craiggy Mac! 

Enjoy the show... its better than the movie!!!

Episode 162: The All Time Top 100 Prologue

Do you have a list of favorite films?  Have you ever written down your top films?  Your top 5?  Top 10?  Maybe top 25?  What about your Top 100 of All Time?

The Deucecast Movie Show hosts--Pinky, Mikey & d$--are doing just that.  After Pinky & Mikey spent a few months... and d$ spent a few years (no, seriously)... listing our favorite films of all time, a new series is beginning.  Every time the show tackles the Top 100, another ten will be released until the Top 10 favorite films of all time are known.

But first... the Prologue.  The 30 films--10 each--that just missed the cut by an ever so close margin... looking at what was almost in the Top 100, what barely, narrowly were edged out of that magical 100 mark. 

A Terminator movie just missed the cut... a big rig Patrick Swayze film didn't quite make it... Cary Grant running from a crop duster almost made it, but not quite... one big and one little monster and a cute little girl named Boo also just missed the 100... how did Thank You For Smoking make this list?  And who in the world couldn't put Die Hard on their list?!  Find out in this episode, as we give you the All Time Top 100 films that rank 101-110...

And next week, join us for a special Intermission when we are joined by Shotglass Digital's own Jimmy Mac as we give a full discussion of the all-time classic, Rocky V!
