Episode 631: ReFlicktions of May

It's only a short list of films this time, so obviously it would be a short ReFlicktions show, right?

Then, a brand new movie trivia game - can you name all the Harry Potter films??

Finally, Dave, Mikey, and #XLessDrEarl, with Bubba, list their fave movie experiences. High school, college, recently, or long ago, hanging out in theaters with friends, family, parents, dates, and even getting stood up (THANKS ALLISON).

Episode 628: Our Favorite Star Wars Fight Scenes

 At the Deucecast Movie Show, we celebrate the most special days of the year, like Christmas, and Mother's Day, and Thanksgiving, and of course, both May the 4th Be With You, and it's follow, Revenge of the Fifth, and it's spiritual sequel Revenge of the Sixth.

To help Mikey, Dave, and #XLessDrEarl celebrate, we invite in first time Friend of the Show, videographer and vlogger and Disney sorta influencer and hardcore Star Wars fiend, THE Derek Frank!

First, a little background on Derek to open the show, followed by the return of America's favorite easy Q&A, Simple Star Wars Trivia (spoiler alert - Mikey always dominates), then a review on the epic re-watch everyone had this weekend over Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace.

And finally, the guys count down their favorite Star Wars fight scenes - not the epic space battles, but one on one or one on five or five on a hundred -- no Star Destroyers, rather blasters and space swords -- and to make the pot even sweeter, the lists cover all the screen media, including TV shows, not just the movies. 

And a quick chat on Tom Hanks Playtone movie studio!

Episode 627: The ReFlicktions Express (the extended cut)

After weeks of finishing up 2023, complete with last week's The Deucie Awards, it's finally time to bring in the rundown of all the movies seen in recent weeks (and months)... as Timberlake would sing, "IT'S GONNA BE MAY... ReFlicktions"

Dave goes through several classic (and maybe not as classic) films, while Mikey discusses his rankings of how 3.5 on Letterboxd may or not be indicative that he hates the movie.  Also, why Daryl Hannah may not be very smart... Dr Earl gets a little pretentious... John Cena bringing it... the early Kendricks film... Earl's Poor Things rant... why Daisy Ridley may not be very good... more Baumbach... 

And big movies like The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare, Godzilla x Kong, Civil War, and Challengers.

And Rebel Moon. Yikes.

Plus, assigned films make their return, with the payoff of Pineapple Express, Minari, While We're Young, and Mr. Jealousy

InternationEarl makes its 2024 appearance, with Dr Earl getting his films to watch.
