Episode 564: The 2022 Lumps of Coal

Like the Masters, its a tradition unlike any other... the Annual Lumps of Coal episode.

Out of the dozens of films The Deucecast Movie Show loved, out of the hundreds of movies the Deucecast Movie Show liked... there are a handful of movies -- or in #TwitterlessDrEarl's case, tropes, patterns, directors and the like -- that just didn't land... or maybe landed with a crash and burn in a bad way.

Hopping straight to it, the guys rail on how hard it is to muck up a great cast and make a terrible movie (yet Hollywood finds a way)... when the crimes of the future becomes a crime in making a film in the present... when Jessica Chastain tries 355, but delivers a Zero... when Benaffleck Ana de Armes' his marriage... the Jim Cameron movie that won't end... and Zac Efron flames out big time.

Plus, this year's winner of "The Movie that Broke Mikey".

Films discussed in this week's episode, and where to find them at the time of recording:

  • Avatar Way of Water (in theaters)
  • Blacklight (Amazon Prime; Paramount+; EPIX)
  • Crimes of the Future (Hulu)
  • Deep Water (Hulu)

The Cheetah Girls have returned to spread their vocals, their mirth, and their marshmallow world all up in your earholes as its the Annual Christmas Gift Episode -- the one where we, that being Mikey, d$, #TwitterlessDrEarl, and Christmas Gift perennial Lil G Spawn of Ryfun Pride of Waycross Garrison, give out the best movie related gifts to the studios, to the people, to the actors, and even some to each other.

The theme music rolls and the festive festives for the entire show!

Episode 562: Have Yourself a Kaufman Little Christmas

The Christmas season is in full swing, with our series of Christmas episodes finally set to begin -- big props to Aussie Nate, Roth from Wyoming, and Lil G for hosting last week...

But the real losers are back in the saddle, with Mikey and d$ taking control again -- #TwitterlessDrEarl off on assignment doing Doctors with Some Borders (because he's pretentious)

It's becoming an annual tradition - one that we find out isn't as old as we thought, but still will be from here anyway - and that is bringing former Delightful Life podcast host and Disney Nerds podcast co-host and sort of blogger and avid hockey fan and mom of 3-7, though we aren't sure, and the greatest voice on our show, one Jennifer Kaufman!

A little bit of chit chat and catching up -- including the movies she's seen, like "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever"
, and Mikey's review of "Christmas Bloody Christmas" and d$'s take on "Violent Night", and a defense of "Spirited" -- they dive into a jolly round of Dylan McDermott Mulroney, starring Candace, Danica, and Lacey! 

Then the Top Five of the Week... the trio's fave non-Christmas movies to watch at Christmas, with some films possibly being a Christmas movie, some films having parts of Christmas in it, and some having nothing to do with Christmas whatsoever.

Plus, the incredible career of Shane Black... the graduation of Young Garrison Ryfun... fantasy movies in the holidays... and much more!

Episode 561: 3 Podcast Men (the guest host show)

While Mikey has missed maybe 2 episodes, and d$ has missed maybe 3 eps, and #TwitterlessDrEarl has only been a regular for the last few hundred eps, now for the first time in almost 12 years and 560 episodes, neither Mikey nor d$ nor #TwitterlessDrEarl are on the show itself.

Instead, three show icons, three show legends, three show fan favorites, three show regulars take over the show... Aussie Nate, Spawn of Ryfun, aka, Lil G, and Roth from Wyoming pick up the reigns as the regular guys are out of action for the week (re: d$ is in Orlando and Mikey is watching movies and #TwitterlessDrEarl just likes the weekend off) and after firing off a quick round of Rotten Tomatoes, they dive right into Top Five Recasted Characters.

From a super spy to a dark knight to a space smuggler to Old Kris Kringle himself, Lil G, Aussie, and Roth serve up their fave characters that were redone even better.

Also, Garrison has never seen Christmas Vacation, and hates Ernest movies, so he will likely not ever be asked back.
