Episode 205: The 2015 Lumps of Coal

It's a short show this week, so we hope you had a Merry Christmas and hope you do have a Happy, Happy New Year!  First, we say goodbye to Shotglass Digital Network... thanks Jimmy & the Shotglass family.  You guys have been amazing to our show and we cannot show enough appreciation for that!

This week, we go over the absolute dreck from the last year, discussing the five worst films we've seen in 2015.  Not all of them are from the last 12 months, but these are the worst films we've seen in those 12 months.

And we are talking baaaaaad films.  Not craptastic films.  Not films that are so bad they are good.  No.  Bad movies.  Horrible movies.  Movies that feature Jordana Brewster at the top.  Movies that say "Starring Kate Heigl".  Movies that feature the words "Cat" and "Woman" together.

Hear about what might be the biggest waste of a good cast to make a bad movie... hear Pinky get angry about a movie... hear d$ rail against The Fantastic Four (again)... hear Mikey talk about the movie that might be one of the worst films he's ever seen, this year or not.

That's all on the 2015 Lumps of Coal Episode!!

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens Special

Because we love Star Wars: The Force Awakens so much, we decided to do a quick review show of the movie itself.

Spoilers? Not at first!

We give a big overview of the movie itself, its possibly legacy and how great it is, then give a 10 second countdown to the beginning of spoilers.

Be warned:  If you are still listening after those 10 seconds, and you haven't seen the movie... first, what is wrong with you?  But second, we will ruin it for you -- but you will have plenty of warning.

Also joining the show is old school The Deucecast contributor and now co-host of Card Trader Illuminerdy Podcast, Hurricane Rhett Barnett.  Enjoy the bonus episode and Merry Christmas!!!

Episode 204: Our Grown-Up Celebrity Christmas List

Merry Christmas!  Kwanzaa!  Hanukkah!  Holidays!  Festivus!  Boxing Day!  And all of that!  It's the last of our month long Christmas episode series, as we bring on not only Dr. Earl, but host of the Remodeling Clay podcast, Clay Shaver!

The episode kicks off with Santa Mikey bestowing gifts upon the group (mostly from his own VHS collection... and by most, we mean "all") and then to a great game of Denzel.

And then, The Deucecast Movie Show opens up the Santa bag and hands out great Christmas gifts to some Hollywood actors & actresses... like Shailene Woodley... and Jake Gyllenhaal... and Terrance Malick... Rick Moranis... Lindsay Lohan and many more, getting the gifts they deserve!

Plus, the "30 Year Reboot Rule" gets introduced for the first time... and...

Mikey extends the olive branch to none other than Anna Kendrick... get your Christmas spirit this week with our Christmas Movie Show!

Episode 203: Holiday ReFlicktions

It's another dive into the movies that we have seen over the last few weeks -- lots of reviews of movies new and old.

Plus, find out how Pinky confused Our Brand is Crisis and Jem & the Holograms... plus he watches a nerdy classic... we question the choices of Sienna Miller, the latest movies of Bradley Cooper and whether Kevin Smith should stick to what he knows...

And a huge discussion on SPECTRE and if James Bond is a character past his prime... much disagreement there is in this segment... and Dr Earl's favorite old school Bond girl... Two of the three hosts really had major issues with Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 2... Raving over Spotlight... Brie Larson's Oscar prospects... the actor that Mikey dubs as "the next Al Pacino"... the death film that Pinky had to suffer through... and can Ashley Judd actually act, or has she been faking it the whole time?

Also, we do talk about The Good Dinosaur briefly, but we encourage you to go back to Ep 202, "Fave Non Animated Family Films" to hear a full review of this movie.

And d$ has a new #1 film on his Top Five, the first change at the top since May!

Episode 202: Favorite Family Movies (ft Jennifer Kaufman!)

It's Christmas time and family is upon us as usual, meaning people everywhere, all over the house, getting all up in your way -- especially the kids.  So you need some safe movies to put on the TV for the children to watch, and we are here to help! And because we know you have a 1000 cartoons around, we make our list all non-animated.

Pinky, Mikey & d$ bring in the co-host of the Disney Nerds Podcast and the (sort of sometimes) host of the Delightful Life Podcast, Jennifer Kaufman!

After birthday movies (how old is Jumanji?!), Jennifer joins the guys for a spirited discussion on... Disney Bathrooms?  And Journey Into Imagination with Figment?  The secret of the pin board at the Pin Traders in Disney Springs?  Isn't this a movie show? What!?

A rousing round of Box Office Mojo gives us the lowdown on the biggest box office earners in 2015... then, we dive into The Good Dinosaur.

The group gives a great assortment of Non-Animated Family Films, including Muppet movies... The Santa Clause... The Goonies.. The Wizard of Oz... and a random appearance by Dr Earl helps the lists get even better! (The Descendants?!) 

Plus, are the Muppets irrelevant to the younger generation?  Great discussion.

Somewhere in there, you'll get a new level of the battle between "A Christmas Story" and "Christmas Vacation"... "Wicked" vs "The Wizard of Oz"... "The Wiz" vs "Dreamgirls"... how many kids Jennifer needs for a reality show... Mikey's daughter's strange crushes... Where Die Hard & Gremlins fall in the "Christmas Movie" listings... the wasted potential of Lindsay Lohan... and where Amy Adams & d$ finally got together.

And to wrap the show up, its the movie segment that is sweeping the nation, or at least our neighborhood where we broadcast, its Pretty in Pink, with a review of The Running Man!

Episode 201: Top 100... 30 to 21

It's another All Time Top 100 Episode, this time taking our 30th favorite all time films (like Harrison Ford's "Witness") and counting down to each of our 21st favorite films.

We also attempt to answer questions like "Why does 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding' get brought up so much?" and "Where did that LEGO Clock come from?" and "Is this the age of the Joey Fatonassaince?" and "Where did Fisher, the former housecat of the Deuce, really get his name?"... and, of course, "What's in the booooooox????"

You'll also get the story of how Johnny Depp was able to create the Capt. Jack Sparrow we all know and love against the wishes of Disney brass.  We share some Bruce Springsteen from what Pinky & Mikey call a straight up "This is a d$ movie".  You'll also find out what movie makes Producer Tommy nod his head in full approval.

Also, hear some great music snippets from favorites like "Jerry Maguire" and "Inside Man"... and finally... the first movie that two of us have ranked exactly the same...
