Episode 257: 2016's Christmas Gifts to the Stars

Another year is winding down, and the generosity of Mikey, Pinky, Dave and guest Remodling Clay Shaver knows no ending.

It's the annual episode where the hosts of the show (and guests) give out Christmas gifts to the celebrities and movie stars who need a little Christmas cheer.

First up, Remodeling Clay, who's words will discount or qualify the validity of a song when it comes to the "Christmas" label, gives his take on a classic by The Eagles.

The presents flow readily... gifts for Amy Adams... Bradley Cooper... Brendan Fraser... Kevin Hart... the cast of Ice Age... Marvel... John Cena... M Night Shymalan... even Vanessa Hudgens... and someone gives a gift to themselves, involving Dermot Mulrooney.  Wait, Dylan McDermont. Wait, Dermot McDermot. Um... Dylan Muldermot?  Well, crap. You know that guy.

And does James Cameron need an epiphany? Should Crackle have the ability to make Oscar nominated films?  Can there be a "no fly" list for reboots?  Find out in this ep (spoiler: The answer is Yes to all three)

Thanks for a great year, thanks for listening, subscribing and being a Deucecast Movie Show Fan!!

Episode 236: The Best Movie Year Ever Tournament Opening Round

In the many years of The Deucecast Movie Show, there have been hundreds, maybe thousands of movies that have been reviewed, from early in the 1900s until very recently.

However, the guys of the show have wondered what is truly the best year of film ever... not the best movies of the year -- but the BEST YEAR of MOVIES EVER.

The years have been given numbers, and randomly numbers are called to fill out a bracket with 40 different years in it.

First up...
2004 (Hitch, The Incredibles, National Treasure & Mean Girls and, negatively, Catwoman)
1986 (Platoon, Aliens, Ferris Bueller's Day Off & Stand By Me)

Then a battle with
1981 (Raiders of the Lost Ark, Superman II, Stripes & Evil Dead)
1998 (Saving Private Ryan, The Big Lebowski, You've Got Mail &  A Bug's Life)

And the big battle between Saving Private Ryan and Raiders of the Lost Ark

And then you have:
1992 (Aladdin, Unforgiven, A Few Good Men & Reservoir Dogs)
2008 (Iron Man, Wall*E, The Dark Knight & Tropic Thunder)

What do you pick?

Episode 235: Summer Lovin'

It's hot outside, like walking through hot soup, but the podcast is cool enough to replace your AC.  Not sure what that means, but this episode is awesome, so whatever.

Mikey, Pinky & Dave bring in Terrence Malick Apologist and Film Historian Dr Earl, and on the Subway Fresh Take Hotline, it's The Delightful Life host and friend of the show Jennifer Kaufman, the girl with the voice so nice that she only comes on so the guys can hear her talk about anything.

First up, a round of IMDb, reading the list of films and naming the actors... including the not-famous-then but famous-now actor who played "Orderly".

Then, its the favorite Summer Films... films that are set in and around summer -- road trips and summer camps and sport camps and vacations and even possibly movies set the night of high school graduation (which technically is summer, even though it just started)

The political incorrectness of "Heavyweights"... Michael Ian Black & Bradley Cooper getting married... the Nancy McKeon summer film that Dave misses... the love of Lucy Deakins... who in the studio are the Rotten Tomato critics and who is the audience... a classic Nia Vardalos vacation film... Jennifer Kaufman's love of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding"... and Dude Kaufman's love of the same... the difference in "American History X" and "American Graffiti" and which one is a better date movie... the brilliance of Jason Segel and the rapidity of Jesse Eisenberg... lamenting Lindsey Lohan... female reboots of all male classics... A Where Are They Now? with the cast of "Summer School"...

And if a film that takes place over the course of the fall, winter and spring, can you call it a "Summer Film"?  Jennifer Kaufman defends, while Dave gives her the facts.

And the love of "My Life in Ruins" and the audience who does love it.

Episode 233: If I Can Change & You Can Change...

It's a tradition like apple pie, hot dogs, baseball and Will Smith movies... The Deucecast Movie Show once again giving you an Americana themed episode, celebrating the best of patriotic, all American, we love this land kind of films.

Joining Pinky, Mikey & Dave in studio is the Terrence Malick apologist, film historian and Brie Larson crush-holder, the estimable Dr. Earl.

First, birthday movies will tell you how old "Legally Blonde" and "Kazaam" and "Point Break" all are, as they all came out in July of various previous years.

Then, reaching back to a game not played since The Deucecast Episode LXII, for the Independence Day week, a game called "American or Commie".  Who was born in America?  And who is foreign born, naturally making them a communist (for the purposes of this game, of course...).  And you'll find out where Tom Skerritt, Emilio Estevez and yes, Amy Adams hails from.
And then, a run down of movies that are considered slices of Americana or downright patriotic... movies like "In America" and "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" and "Red Dawn" and even the film that actually ended the Cold War.

Theories on how the Air Force One commies would be treated today... Mikey's new love of "Wahlburgers"... the puzzlement of what "The Danger Zone" actually means... the filmography of Heath Ledger... writing a paper on the Civil War, using only a movie for reference... why Rocky Balboa is more American than you...

Finally, in the returning Pretty in Pink, Pinky gives his rundown of the movie "Clueless" and gets another great 90s classic to watch for next go'round.

Tuesday, July 5, 2016

Episode 231: Cult Classic Films - The Live Show

Coming to you live and recorded from a small side room (and not the promised main stage, but who's counting...) at the annual Magic City Con in Birmingham, Alabama, it's The Deucecast Movie Show!
Dave, Mikey and Pinky hold court to first do a quick audience participation version of The Rotten Tomatoes Game, then the main segment kicks off.

It's "Cult Classic Films", however you may define it.  Movies that the guys feel that have quite a following, movies that aren't forgotten, movies that really define a slice of a generation.

Episode 230: The Unnecessary Sequels

You could say every episode after Ep 1 of this show is an unnecessary sequel... but yet, its 229 episodes later.  Being Pinkless again, Dave and Mikey welcome back Hurricane Rhett to the studio, as well as Producer Shawn, and on the line... it's Scott Ryfun!

Before the lists begin, it's time to play another "NAME THAT..." game, this time with acting legend Jean-Claude Van Damme.  Can you tell your "Maximum Risk" from "Cyborg" from "Hard Target" from "Lionheart"?  Find out as you hear the descriptions and make the guess on the titles.  

Finally, because "Now You See Me 2" isn't called "Now You Don't", it qualifies as an "Unnecessary Sequel".  Listen in as Dave, Mikey, Ryfun & Hurricane Rhett give their best examples of great movies that had movies after it that just didn't need to be made...

Movies such as a Halloween sequel... a Crocodile Dundee sequel... a Highlander sequel... A Grumpy Old Men sequel... a Mannequin sequel... and some classic films that have... prequels. Yup. It happens here. 

And topics like... tainting the legacy of "Close Encounter of the Third Kind"... Mike Myers and Willy Wonka... Paul Hogan's tax woes... the future of your franchise when Shannon Tweed gets involved... the lose your virginity 80s genre... the "Put Shia LaBeouf in Everything" era... Edward James Olmos with a Schwarzenegger ISIS flair... Jack Nicholson sequels... the sadness of the prequels... Terry Crews making movies better... the musical stylings of Mac Davis... the fallacy of Louis Gossett, Jr... Bo Svenson vs Joe Don Baker...

Episode 223: Deucecast Origins

(Show art co-art'ed by Remodeling Clay Shaver)

This episode is like a four fingered hand... the Pinky is missing.  Out doing something with his fake girlfriend on a fake date, filming a fake short film. Or something.
Tonight, it's Dave and Mikey on a very special episode.  If this were an 80's sitcom, a "Very Special Episode" would mean that Dave was dealing with an eating disorder or Mikey was playing inside of a fridge and got locked in... but for The Deucecast Movie Show, it's the short-awaited "origins episode."

Where did the name "Deucecast" come from?  How did Mikey and Dave meet each other?  Where does Pinky come in?  Who is Tommy?  Is Shawn real? 

Dave and Mikey pull back the curtain to talk about what happened to lead to the most popular movie podcast with the name "Deucecast" in the title.  

Plus, a Q&A session, answering inquires from Facebook and email and Twitter, like the hosts' first theatrical films, thoughts on the new release boxes at home, forgotten TV shows into films and more.
Also, listing some fans' own lists of their Top 10 films of all time.  And finally, an in-depth look at a Top 100 list and how to put it together. 

And of course, a name drop of the band Tantric. Because of course Tantric.

Make sure you visit our friends of the show's websites, like Craig Harmann, the worship leader...

Ep 222: Whoever's in New England with Joe Tavano

Taking the podcast to a Southie Direction, Mikey, Dave and Pinky bring in fellow movie lover, geek and all around cool dude Joe Tavano, the founder of RetroZap Podcasting Network.

As the guys begin, a brand new game emerges... "NAME THAT SEAGAL".  Can you tell one Steven Seagal movie from another?  It's harder than you think...

Diving into Boston Films, movies set in and around the Boston area take center stage... classics like "The Town", "The Departed" and even "Celtic Pride"... okay, maybe not all three of those make it.  And Joe, being from the area, gives the down-low on several films like "Jaws", "Mystic River" and even "Fever Pitch".  Plus, the trend of mid-80's New England beach films that feature boats and regattas.  

And what to expect when John Laroquette is atop your movie poster.

Bonus!  What song might be Boston' theme song? Well Dave has no idea, but that doesn't stop him from trying, does it?

And don't forget to check out some our favorite shows on RetroZapped.Com, like Skywalking Through Neverland, TechnoRetro Dads, Brews & Blasters and others!

Episode 220: The DC Comic / BvS Show

When you say comic, you are likely talking about Mikey, Pinky & Dave in The Deucecast Movie Show!  In fact, you can't say Deucecast without DC... even though the guys are more Marvel, they dive into DC Comic movies!

Joining the group is Terrance Malick Apologist and Film Historian Dr Earl, aka, McDreamySteamy, and Friend of the Show, host of the Remodeling Clay podcast Clay Shaver.  

Up first are the birthday movies ("Bridget Jones Diary" is how old??), and then a new segment where the group is forced to discuss situations where Tom Cruise may never win an Academy Award... where Adam Sandler never gets his groove back, if he had a groove... or Avengers Infinity War makes a billion dollars and yet, isn't any good.

Favorite DC Comic movies is the topic, and though there is a lot of Batman and Superman, there is also some Violence, some Perdition, a few Losers, a Vendetta, a Hornet.. and yes, Blue Junk.  

You'll also hear a callback to "Swordfish"... Mikey the Contrarian... and mentions of Jacquline Bisset, David Schwimmer as Superman AND a Plastic Man addition, though that might be a stretch. 

The talk eventually turns to the spectacle that is "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", recently released.  Starring Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck, with Gal Gadot and Jessie Eisenberg, Mikey's boyfriend Kevin Costner in a flashback and Dave's love of Amy Adams, the film is divisive among the hosts and guests... 

The first bit of discussion is spoiler free, just overall opinions... there is a warning given, then a dive into much deeper discussion, filled with spoilers.

And you'll also get to hear the latest "Pretty in Pink"... find out what Pinky thinks of "The Lost Boys"

The main event in this episode is the Mount Rushmore of Actors.  Now that the gang has given their all time 100 favorite films, its time to find out what films belong on each guy's "Mt Rushmore of Actors"... the four favorite actors of all time.  Names like Ford... Connery... DiCaprio... and The Rock.  And of course, Cage.  Always Cage. Naturally Cage.

Plus, the sad state of affairs with Pacino & DeNiro... and which actor is considered "Comfort Food"... and Mikey gets morbid about the mortality of acting icons...

Episode 217: Ryfun, Amblin fun & Spring Movie Fun

It's an epic episode of awesomeness with Dave, Mikey and Pinky as they take on the films made under the banner of Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment.  To take on such a task, not only is friend of the show, Terrence Malick Apologist and Movie Historian, the esteemable Dr. Earl brought in, but radio host and host of My Star Wars Story and Dinner For Geeks podcasts Scott Ryfun.

After the intros, a stirring game of Denzel brings forth the films of Rob Schneider, who played the love interest chick in I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry and "the guy, I'm seeing the guy in Herbie Fully Loaded"... plus, the most Edward Woodward Talk you've ever heard on The Deucecast Movie Show!

Plus, could a podcast called "My Steel Magnolias Story" work?  Maybe?  Maybe not?

Hiddleston's Hank Williams movie... the major fault in the third installment of "The Ring" series... Don Cheadle's bid for the Oscar... the film that Dave considers a loose reboot of "Troop Beverly Hills"... a first person shooter movie... the lack of buzz for the live action "Jungle Book"...

From the director of "New Year's Day" and "Valentine's Day", the next in the series of random holiday flicks...

And... what flick seems like a ripoff of the Dabney Coleman classic "Short Time"?

And then, the gang dives into their favorite Amblin Films (you can see the list of Amblin movies here).  Among the discussion points:  That time that Disney & Warner Brothers worked together... more shocking revelations of films that Pinky hasn't seen... Mikey's irrational fear of Peter Coyote... John Goodman as an exterminator... the peak of Harley Jane Kozak... the controversy of Poltergeist and Amblin... The History Channel version of Steven Spielberg... the dim prospects of Christian Bale... Scott Ryfun's hate/love for Spielberg... Audrey's final movie... and lots of Saving Private Ryan talk.

Pretty in Pink takes on the movie "Heathers"... and guest Scott Ryfun chooses the next Pretty in Pink film!
