Episode 633: My Favorite Summer... The Dramas

The second part of My Favorite Summer brings the drama this week -- as the Deucecast Movie Show crew gives their own list of the serious stories from the world of cinema.

Joining Mikey, d$, and #XLessDrEarl is the co-host of the Good Day 4 a Movie Podcast, Jacob Roth, aka Roth from Wyoming, as they chit-chat and then play a round of a game not played in these here parts in a while -- The Ryan Phillippe Game returns for the first time since 2022.

Then, the Top Ten Fave Dramatic Films... everyone has their own description, as some movies may be more of a dramedy than a drama... or maybe it's listed under drama for one, but will be in another category for another.

Legendary films like The Godfather make a few lists, 90s capers like True Romance is discussed, a tragedy unfolds in one film, a fort is defending in another, and movies from as far back as 1966 are covered, all the way up to last year.

Episode 632: My Favorite Summer... The Classics

 It's finally time for the summer and with it, the summer series at The Deucecast Movie Show! For the fourth... or fifth, who's counting... your fave movie podcast that you, but probably not any of your friends and definitely not most girls you know, are listening to is giving you a theme for the summer, a series of episodes intertwined with a common theme... this time, it's "My Favorite Summer". 
And for the summer, Dave, Mikey, and #XLessDrEarl will be giving you the top tens of their favorites across movie genres, like comedies, dramas, animation, and more, and tonight, the Classics.  And of course, to rank the classics is our fellow cinephile and film snob, the pride of Toccoa Falls, Garrison Ryfun!

First, a little round of Movie Trivia from The Book, and then, diving right in... all of our all time fave films from all the years, from the early days of film up until the cut-off of 1969. 

Legendary directors like Wilder, Hitchcock, Fleming, and Lumet... incredible performances from the likes of Cary, Stewart, Bogie, Audrey... and sweeping plantation epics to tiny jury rooms to creepy hotels to pool halls.
