Episode 555: The Most Inept Movie Bad Guys

When you get five and half-a-hunna episodes into your podcast, including 12 Halloween Episodes, you can't always do "Best Villains"... sometimes you have to go the other way, and do the "Worst Villains", or more specifically, "The Most Incompetent Bad Guys" in films.

October birthday movies up first, as Blade Runner 2049 celebrates its 5th birthday, The Might Ducks has it's 30th birthday, and The Manchurian Candidate turns 60 (RIP Angela Lansbury!)

Guest of the night, Miss Independent himself Jeremy Burgess joins the show to fill us on on Dust on the VCR as well as the update on the upcoming film Don't Die.

Then, Mikey, Dave, #TwitterlessDrEarl, and Burgess give their own list of greatly terrible bad guys in film -- written well but played poorly, or the storyline they are given is terrible, or flashy but totally ineffective for any number of reasons.

Finally, MikeTober #9 commences, with Mikey giving his recap and ranking of "Speak No Evil", "Dog Soldiers", "The Vanishing" and some other movie I can't remember but he didn't like as much. 

Movies mentioned in the show, and where they are streaming at time of recording:

  • Attack of the Killer Tomatoes (TubiTV) 
  • The Avengers (Disney+)
  • The Dead Zone (HBO Max)
  • Don't Worry Darling (In Theaters; for rental)
  • The Great Mouse Detective (Disney+)
  • Fantastic Four (1994) (unavailable) 
  • Fargo (Starz)
  • Glory Road (Disney+)
  • Halloween Ends (Peacock; In Theaters)
  • It's Alive (unavailable) 
  • Karate Kid III (Showtime)
  • Mars Attacks (for rental)
  • The Princess Bride (Disney+)
  • Signs (for rental)
  • Slugs (TubiTV)
  • Speak No Evil (Shudder)
  • Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (Disney+)
  • Quantum of Solace (Netflix; Amazon Prime
  • Robin Hood (Disney+)
  • V/H/S (Hulu)
  • V/H/S 2: Rewinding Boogaloo (Hulu; Chicken Soup For the Soul's Crackle)
  • X-Men (Disney+; Hulu)

Episode 554: The Best Henchmen in Film

Halloween is quickly approaching as the fall rolls on, and the spooky movies are already on deck for both Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl. But before they get to Halloween proper (and the annual Halloween ep coming in a few weeks), they'll spend a little time with some of the other mean, evil, and sometimes incompetent characters of film.

First, quick chatter about recent movies taken in, including "Amsterdam" and "Werewolf By Night", then a Rotten Tomatoes game featuring the good, and bad, movies made by the master of horror fiction, Stephen King himself. Everything from the acclaimed like "Stand by Me" to the forgotten, like "The Mangler".  Everyone figures Mikey will win this one too. Right? Right.

Then, the Henchmen. Those who don't run the show, but do the bidding of those movie villains who do. Then again, sometimes the Henchmen in question are really the ones in charge. Either way, each of the Deucecast trio brings their own favorites to their lists.

Plus... the short career of Alexander Godunov and a
multiverse world where Harrison Ford is a dentist on Friends and Tom Selleck wields a whip.

Episode 553: Glosson is So Extra

Due to a number of factors including a hurricane that kept d$'s vacation totally up in the air and a Sunday night unavailability and Monday night plans that were set then were squashed and of course, the fallback plan... an ep of The Deucecast Extra, all for your listening ears.

While Dave makes his way back from Orlando, Mikey, and #TwitterlessDrEarl welcome in the Pride of Eatonton, the Spawn of Ryfun, Lil G in the hizzy, along with Wyoming's Best Hope, J Roth.

The first hour consists of a look at Ep 6 of "She-Hulk: Attorney at Law", in which we determine that Mikey hates Baltimore... and then some MCU News, with the Deadpool teaser.

Then, "Andor" episodes 1-3, with all the characters and themes and Blade Runner vibes throughout.

THEN... about 54 minutes in...

Steve Glosson.

The man, the myth, the legend calls in and gives his take on Andor... Thor and Thor Love & Thunder... and weird aliens in Star Wars and Good Will Hunting and Fantastic Four and The Eternals and Dibello the Lawyer and classic Steve Glosson and The Big Honkin Show's return and Rise of Skywalker and Michael hates "Willow" and "Blade" and Superman II's Donnor Cut vs Donnor party
