Episode 559: DeuceGiving 2022

It's our annual episode of giving thanks, in a DeuceGiving style!  This is the episode where Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl gives their thanks!

Movies are finally back (for the most part), so after a few birthday movies, including The Last Unicorn and The Lord of the Rings celebrating some big anniversaries, we give our list of gratitude for the movie world --  thanks for the return of our favorite Butt Wagons and ingenues arising and Data gets his spotlight and old school being new school and so much more.

And of course, thanks to all of YOU for the listening and downloading and so much more!

Episode 558: The November 90s

The holiday season is here, and we are one week out from our annual DeuceGiving episode, which kicks off two months of annual eps - from Christmas gifts to Kaufman's yearly seasonal offerings to Top Tens of Not the Year to Lumps of Coal and much more.

But that's later.

Today, we talk November... last year, around this time, we talked best November movies of the 2000s. This time, we take it back a decade and do the best of the 90s -- any film released from November 1 to November 30th in 1990... and 1991... and 1992.. and so on, up until 1999.

And to regale our 11th months gone by, Dave, Mikey, and #TwitterlessDrEarl brings in a familiar face, one not seen in a bit -- Dave's Main Street Electrical Podcast co-star Jenn Novotny!  She joins the dudes to discuss their top fives.

Also, catching up with Upon a Star Jenn -- latest films she's seen, her newest podcasting venture, and just Amish life in general. 

Then, a new game called All Rotten Or Alright, as it's a mixed bag of Rotten and Fresh films from Novembers gone by, then a little Catch Up with Jenn, including her two existing podcasts and a new show upcoming, The Couples Code, which you can look for online soon.

Deucecast Classic: The Political Movies

This week, we drop an episode that premiered on November 6th, 2016, including d$, Mikey, #TwitterlessDrEarl, and Pinky (!) -- these are the original show notes from that episode, or find it here

It's election season here in 'Merica, and to recognize, Mikey, Pinky, and Dave are talking favorite political films!  And who better to bring in to discuss such movies than the President of the Pretentious
Corner, the Witt Stillman fan, the Film Historian, the Terence Malick Apologist himself, the honorable Dr Earl.

First up, a round of The Ryan Phillippe Game, where you have to name all the films of a certain actor like Kurt Russell, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Owen Wilson or Charlize Theron and more.

And then... fave political movies!   People trying to win an election!  Leaders trying to stop a war!  Superheroes trying to stay on the right side of America!  Movies like Lincoln!  Argo!  Wag the Dog! Captain America Civil War!

A great recommendation for the movie "Failsafe" as well, if you can find it, and for "Eye in the Sky", which is now available on Netflix.

So enjoy the list of political movies and tell us your own faves!

DISCLAIMER:  There isn't any talk of the current political climate, nor it's candidates, its merely a list of favorite films involving not just government, but anything where a leadership plays a game of hierarchy for positioning...
