Episode 462: 2020 Lumps of Coal

For the 5th year in a row, the final episode of the year for The Deucecast Movie Show is the Lumps of Coal episode... the movies that... well, weren't the best or the favorites of Mikey, Dave, or #TwitterlessDrEarl.

A top five of films -- or in some cases, production teams or Hollywood battles -- that didn't come anywhere near the crew's favorite films seen in 2020.  Including Vin's lack of range... a Scott Baio film that would never pass in this century... another Disney franchise failure... Nic Cage's lack of karate skills... John Turturro's lack of bowling scenes... and much more.

Plus, a quick discussion on the CBS Mini-Series The Stand and a few words about Wonder Woman 1984

Episode 461: Christmas Movie Gifts 2020

If you listen to the episode, you may recognize the opening theme, the best time of the year, when the Deucecast Movie Show plays the official Christmas theme of the show.  It truly is a Marshmallow World.

Dave, Mikey, and #TwitterlessDrEarl are here once again to give out their annual Christmas gifts to the stars, and joining the show for the first time in the Christmas season, it's Spawn of Ryfun, Lil G himself Garrison Ryfun.

First up, Birthday movies, with everything from Popeye to a previous Star War edition, then Garrison gives a little Christmas episode history of the Deucecast Movie Show (he has notes!)

Then the guys begin to give out the gifts!  Chris Nolan has a present to open.  The tiny town of New Albanwick has a gift. AMC will get something under the tree. And for the first time, someone in the group gives their gifts to the others during the Top Five itself.

Episode 460: The Disney Plus Announcements

 It's another week closer to Christmas, as the Deucecast crew -- Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessButNotDiscordDrEarl -- get ready for the big visit from Santa... 

But first, out of nowhere, Disney dropped an almost four hour meeting on everyone last week called Disney Investor Day, and out of that came dozens of titles, series, movies, and projects upcoming in the next few years.  So who better to break it all down for you than these guys, plus Friend of the Show Upon a Star Jenn, direct from Amish Country.

Marvel shows and movies... Star Wars new series, spin-offs and films... Pixar's new projects and films coming up... Disney Animation's 59th and 60th films in Disney canon, plus their new animated series and projects...

Plus, chatting about The Mandalorian... the movie A Ghost Story... and all the other randomness that comes with nerddom.
