Episode 474: Zack Snyders See This Not That

The Deucecast Movie Show crew has returned after a week off, and they are ready to rumble when it comes to movies.  First up, Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl take a look at the recent Oscar nominations and give their thoughts -- surprises, expectations, snubs, and a few predictions.

Next, a longer discussion on the recent release of the four hour Zack Snyder's Justice League, how it's better, some of the differences, and thoughts on the Josstice League by comparison.

Then, an episode long round of See This Not That, looking at 15 members of the Zack Snyder's Justice League cast and picking for each a movie to "See This" and then a movie to "Not That", from JK Simmons to Robin Wright to Diane Lane to Jason Mamoa (and even a little Jason MaNO-AH). And of course, Dave's girlfriend, Amy Adams.

Sprinkled amongst the listings are this year's Deucie Award nominations - Popcorn Movie, Animated Feature, Drama, Comedy, Acting nods, Director, Picture and all of those.  The 8th annual Deucie Awards commence in just a few weeks.

Finally, the movies for watching, assigned to #TwitterlessButNotDiscordlessDrEarl, for this year's SpirituEarl... films with a religious or Christian bend to the them, movies he will watch and report back on in a few weeks.

Deucecast Classic: Sci Fi with TechnoRetro Dads

It's a busy spring break week for everyone as Mikey is busy eating and #TwitterlessDrEarl is in Long Island testifying at a lint removal procedure gone wrong trial and Dave is out of the state, so rather than trying to get a rushed show together, they guys are taking the week off.

This week, the show pays homage to our good friends over at TechnoRetro Dads, who's own show is ending. This Deucecast Classic is from May 2018, episode 327.  Enjoy the old school vibe, and here are the original show notes from that episode:

It's a couple of guys who keep their heads in the clouds and gaze at the stars, so it's only fitting that Dave and Mikey discuss Fantasy and Science Fiction films. But since #Twitterless Dr Earl can't be found (he's doing a lint removal procedure from the naval of poor kids in Long Island), who better to invite onto the show than the TechnoRetro Dads  themselves, Shazbazzar and Jedi Shuuuuuuuuaaaaahhhhhh....

And the gang jumps right in, counting off their lists of what they consider to be their favorite fantasy/sci-fi films of this century... that's really anything released on January 1st, 2000, until... well, you know, today. Or the day of the recording, anyway.

The TRD's also give their take on "Ready Player One" before diving into the Top Ten, then the guys discuss at length -- and at depth -- the legacy and their adoration of films like "Children of Men" and the newest "Star Trek" and newer "Star Wars" films and Shaz defends "John Carter" while Dave defends "Lady in the Water".

Its a great two hours of sci fi fantasy fun and movie love!
