The Deucecast Movie Show is here to give you all the movies you need to know about coming in the next three months -- Dave and Mikey and Dr Earl go weekend by weekend, giving you the ones to mark onto your calendar... First up, a summer blockbuster round of Rotten Tomatoes, with films like Wild Wild West and the '89 Batman and Inception and of course Jaws -- plus a new rule instituted during the playing of the game! Among topics discussed, the guys answer the question "Where is Jeremy Burgess??"... discuss the difference in Pullman and Paxton, and the tragedy of Paxton's last film... reboots of dude films into chick films... a rare Bollywood-esque preview... Pooh animated (or not?)... love for Peter Berg... Nic Cage, finally as Superman... and what everyone is excited for... And who could guess that Dave loves ABBA so much?

The summer is in full swing, with Dave, Mikey & Dr Earl taking a look at movies seen recently, and invite in Friend of the Show Hurricane Rhett, with a special appearance by Producer Tommy. The episode kicks off with Birthday Movies, including celebrating release days by such amazing cinematic appearances like Sliver, Black Dog and The Lizzie McGuire Movie Then, a quick review of movies watched in the last few weeks, including Chappaquiddick, Thief, Wind River, Breakin 2: Electric Boogaloo, The Perfect Score... The Week Of... The Runner... Andre the Giant... Kodachrome... Tragedy Girls... 78/52... Brad's Status... Score: A Film Music Documentary... Una... Hitman's Bodyguard... The crew gives their Top Five of the Year so far, and a heads up is given before spoilers. And of course, a full review of Avengers: Infinity War, with comic book legacy, various deaths, character movies, pronouncing "Heimdale", likes, dislikes, Thanos as a sympathetic villain, the ending, where the next movie may go and all of that and such. FINALLY... a random in-depth discussion on the future of the Star Wars cinematic universe.
It's a couple of guys who keep their heads in the clouds and gaze at the stars, so it's only fitting that Dave and Mikey discuss Fantasy and Science Fiction films. But since #Twitterless Dr Earl can't be found (he's doing a lint removal procedure from the naval of poor kids in Long Island), who better to invite onto the show than the TechnoRetro Dads themselves, Shazbazzar and Jedi Shuuuuuuuuaaaaahhhhhh.... And the gang jumps right in, counting off their lists of what they consider to be their favorite fantasy/sci-fi films of this century... that's really anything released on January 1st, 2000, until... well, you know, today. Or the day of the recording, anyway. The TRD's also give their take on "Ready Player One" before diving into the Top Ten, then the guys discuss at length -- and at depth -- the legacy and their adoration of films like "Children of Men" and the newest "Star Trek" and newer "Star Wars" films and Shaz defends "John Carter" while Dave defends "Lady in the Water". Its a great two hours of sci fi fantasy fun and movie love!
Another edition of The Deucecast Movie Show walks down the podcasting aisle, with Mikey and Dave inviting in The Long Intro-less, Twitterless Dr Earl. Because Producer Shawn finally got hitched recently, the crew thought it would be fun to talk weddings in movies, both full films and scenes too. What better way to do that than to invite in the Delightful Jennifer Kaufman, courtesy of the Binder & Binder hotline. And what better way to talk about wedding movies than to talk about... Kaufman's former podcast The Delightful Life, local soccer teams, soccer rules, hockey rules and more, including a quick debate on the pros & cons of the hockey shootout. A new game premieres this episode, a game called "Bridget, Michelle or Kate"... who was in the movies called out? Moving onto weddings, Dave, Kaufman and Mikey share their quick wedding stories (while Twitterless Dr Earl takes a nap), then onto the Top Five Movie Weddings. From The Muppets Take Manhattan to Bridesmaids to Spaceballs to My Best Friends Wedding and more, the DCMS celebrates movie nuptials and more. And Kaufman hates The Princess Bride. Still.
The Deucecast Movie Show jumps back into the bracket format again, this time with Tom Cruise movies! Mikey and Dave invite in Twitterless Dr Earl, and get Waycross Bainswick Georgia's own Scott Ryfun. And the bonus Ryfun, Garrison, also joins in. The guys match up Tom Cruise roles one by one, until there is only one remaining, with lots of discussions on Mission Impossible movies without the numbers... the Mimi Rogers years... Garrison saying "I haven't seen that" an awful lot... The Ron Kovic dilemma... and lots and lots of shirtless, sweaty volleyball. And an Emilio Estevez sighting!
Like that horrifically awful Staind song said, "It's been a while...." But never fear, Mikey, Dave and #Twitterless Doctor Earl are back in the podcasting saddle, this time with loads of ReFlicktions -- reviewing new and old movies seen in the last month or more. After a quick look at April birthday movies, the guys dive right into ReFlicktions, going over a great new Star Wars documentary... Dave paying off his punishment for losing the Oscar pool... Bryan Brown talk... Dr Earl enjoying both a RomCom and Munchhausen by Proxy and getting Woke... Dave's latest Disaster Movies... Crushing on the Rock... much love for A Quiet Place... much non-love for A Wrinkle in Time... and lots of Burgess name dropping. Plus, Dave & Mikey's newest Top Five of 2018, and Dr. Earl's first list. Movies discussed: Hurricane Heist... The Director & the Jedi... Searching for Sugarman... Skiptrace... Pacific Rim: Uprising (WAR READY)... F/X... Atomic Blonde... When We First Met... Blackway... Ready Player One... Mommy Dead & Dearest... Hostel II... Happy Anniversary... Black Panther... Geostorm... Rampage... A Quiet Place... A Ghost Story... Andre the Giant... Elvis: The Searcher... A Wrinkle in Time... The Florida Project... Arthur Miller: Writer... Blockers
It's another classic episode as the guys take one more week off -- new The Deucecast Movie Show episodes coming next week! In ep 239, from August 2016, the TechnoRetro Dad co-host Shaz joins Mikey, Dave, Pinky & Dr Earl to talk about their favorite childhood TV shows that they want to see turn into movies... everything from The Wonder Years to The Greatest American Hero, from Morgan Freeman as a possible KITT to Christian Slater as a Hogan Hero. And, thanks to d$, lots of Katherine Heigl. Join us next week for all new episodes of The Deucecast!
The guys are taking two weeks off because of... well, life. But don't sweat it! Here is a classic episode from The Deucecast Movie Show, released all the way back on June 8th, 2013. The show had just transitioned from a variety show into a strictly movie show, and Episode 101 features Dr Earl (Before he got all of his titles)... Pinky, as he joins the show officially... Mikey and Dave as hosts... and even Producer Tommy and Producer Shawn! Its the first real "ReFlicktions" show of the Deucecast Movie Show, covering films like the original "Jack Reacher"... "The Great Gatsby"... "Now You See Me"... and an extensive love fest for Fast & Furious 6. And then a list of the guys favorite "disappointing summer blockbusters"!

Then, to the main segment, an extended game of "See This / Not That", where the crew takes on the cast of The Avengers Infinity War. One by one, Mikey, Dave, Ryfun and Dr Earl each give you the movie you should see and one to avoid with each of the Avengers, from Chris Evans to Robert Downey Jr to Zoe Saldana to ScarJo to Liz Olsen and everyone in between. And we mention Steve Glosson many times over.

The Greatest Role Ever preliminary tournament rolls on, this time featuring Denzel Washington. And what better way to do a Sweet 16 than to bring on Michigan's Finest, host of the Remodeling Clay Podcast Clay Shaver! The show kicks off with a great round of, what else, The Denzel Game, and joining the crew a few minutes in, Friend of the Show, Wit Stillman Fan, Lover of Brie (Allison, Larsen & the cheese), Terrance Malick Apologist, Film Historian and Remover of Eyeworms, The Estimable Twitterless Dr. Earl. Then, onto the tournament, where the greatest Denzel Movie Roles are matched up against each other, as they are whittled down until the best Denzel Cinematic Performance remains. A play in game sees Denzel in Courage Under Fire taking on Denzel in A Soldier's Story, for that chance to take on Denzel in Then, its Playa to Playa, Pimp to Pimp as you'll hear about Denzel in Philadelphia, Denzel in Glory, Denzel in The Hurricane, Denzel in He Got Game... and much, much more. Plus, Remodeling Clay makes more terrible decisions in who he leaves out of the bracket.
Mikey and Dave are back in the studio, inviting in Friend of the Show, Wit Stillman Fan, Lover of Brie (Allison, Larsen & the cheese), Terrence Malick Apologist, Film Historian and Nobel Prize of Medicine Nominee for Thuganomics, The Estimable Twitterless Dr. Earl. And back on the Binder & Binder Hotline, good friend of the show and Remodeling Clay Podcast host Remodeling Clay Shaver! First up, a few birthday movies, with mentions of classics like "Sommersby", "Definitely, Maybe" and "Cradle 2 Tha Grave" and then a gross use of the term "chicken finger" Another round of Word Up! takes place, with thoughts on a new Joker film, the Solo trailer and the Marvel 10th Anniversary picture. If you look back into The Deucecast Movie Show's archives, you'll find Top Ten Documentaries back in Episode 183 and 184 (July 2015). Since then, a plethora of docs have come out, and the guys take a look at some of their favorites released since then and in recent memory. Shying away from the ones frequently discussed -- "Tickled", "Weiner", "Dear Zachary", etc -- other documentaries surface and resurface, with subjects like Gilbert Gottfried and Nic Cage as Superman and Tower Records and The Beatles and Steven Spielberg and chickens and chicken fingers and racism and volcanoes, Werner Herzog style. Also, the power of nostalgia and Caddyshack.
