Episode 579: Our Fave Movie Coaches


Sometimes the topics come to the guys easy, especially when they fit around the guest so perfectly -- hence, we finally discuss our Top Five Fave Movie Coaches, as we bring on a returning fave and now a head coach in his own right, Clay Shaver! 

Clay lets everyone know where he's been, and how he's now a high school basketball coach. 

Then, some birthday movies, letting the world know exactly how old movies like Scream 2, Cop & a Half, and Soylent Green are... and of course, Ladybugs. RIP Jonathan Brandis.

A rousing game of Denzel is up next, with a surprise winner in dominating fashion.

Then, the Top Five Movie Coaches -- naturally you'd think football, or just even any sport, but leave it to dear ol' Mikey to make it weird. Plus, great discussions on this generation's "Caddyshack"... Tom Hanks being a great drunk... Gene Hackman and Jack Nicholson are old... and what might be the best bowling movie not named The Big Lebowski... 

Plus Coach Shaver let's the audience know why "Lady" is not appreciated.

Episode 577: Les Deucerables... The Western vs The Musical

Big plans ahead for the summer at The Deucecast Movie Show, so in an effort to continue the quest to find the greatest roles of all time... it's another Big Bracket Tourney.

This time, friend of the show Roth from Wyoming stops by with his own bracket, featuring two of his fave movie genres... on one side, the classic and modern westerns of the age, featuring the classic and modern roles in the tournament... Butch Cassidy, the Sundance Kid, Will Kane, Bill Mumy, The Man with No Name, Doc Holliday, all of the Wyatt Earps (the good one and the Costner one) and more.

On the other side, the classic and modern musical roles of the age -- Maria Von Trapp, Lil Orphan Annie (in a heated battle, by the way), Dorothy, Willy Wonka and more, many of which lead to a true "what makes a musical?" discussion.

And Mary Poppins gets her final shot at Big Bracket glory.
