Mikey and Dave kick off the show by not only introducing 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 of Clinical Skin Abrasion, The Estimable Twitterless Dr. Earl, but also on the Binder & Binder Hotline, the guys welcome in Mr Independent Jeremy Burgess. Burgess gives us the first real addition of "The Burgeler" (its Burge-Ler, not Burgel-er, by the way), where like the departed "Valentine's Pink" from year's past, Burgess gives his review of four films assigned to him by the guys in The Deucecast Movie Show.

"Broadcast News" (assigned by Dr. Earl)... and "The Fountain" (forced upon Burgess by Mikey). Then, to the ReFlicktions, where the guys talked about such frivolity as Dr Earl's medical rage... Remodeling Clay's ego for winning all of these things... Sam Rockwell's fine line... Margot Robbie looking too good for her movie... the American Treasure Wes Studi...

For another movie filled episode of The Deucecast Movie Show, as Dave and Mikey welcome back 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 his work in toejam fungus, The Estimable Twitterless Dr. Earl. And the guys also welcome back to the show our own Disney Diva, and co host of the Divas Dish Diz and Amish Paradiser Jennifer Novotny! First up, a round of the IDMb Reverse game -- can you name the movie based on the actors from the list on the IMDb page? Then, a quick Coco review, a round up of Disney vacations and Disney restaurants. Then onto the topic... The best movies 90 minutes or less. Some of the films come in just under the wire, like "Office Space" and "Stand By Me", others clear it by a lot, like "The Rescuers", "The King of Kong" and "Winnie the Pooh".
It's what The Deucecast Movie Show considers it's "Super Bowl", the Academy Awards. Which we all know is really a prelude to the 5th Annual Deucies, coming up later this year. But first, Mikey and Dave welcome 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 his work in belly button aesthetics, The Estimable Twitterless Dr. Earl. After a quick (?) game of Rotten Tomatoes Potpourri, Oscar style, Dave, Mikey and Earl go category by category, making early predictions, plus a discussion on the Oscar favorites and why Hollywood may go for "warm and fuzzy" rather than "gritty and harsh" this year.
Here is a special episode release! It's Episode 16 of the Magic on a Dollar Podcast, hosted by David Dollar, co-host of The Deucecast Movie Show. On this episode of the #MODPOD, David talks about some Disney news and Disney history, and brings on the other half of the Deucecast team, Mikey Nipp, to talk about this year in Disney films!

Take another amazing excursion into movie podcasting excellence... and when you are done with that ride, then come on and listen to this episode of The Deucecast Movie Show! Mikey and Dave hold down the fort, with all Friends of the Show doing other things, as they bring the best films they watched in 2017 that weren't actually from 2017. First up, a little See This, Not That, where the guys tell you what Kevin Costner films to see and which ones to avoid... which Time Travel movies to catch and which to skip... what M Night Shymalala flicks you need to make time for and which ones you never have to watch... and what Matt Damon cinematic experiences to experience and what Matt Damon cinematic experiences you can forego experiencing. Then Friend of the Show Jeremy Burgess calls into the show randomly, as the show introduces the replacement for the annual Valentine's Pink... The Deucecast Movie Show presents Burgentine's Day, assigning him some romantic films... plus the first appearance of The Girl's Next Door's "Slow Boat to China" (from 1986, not 1988, by the way)... including the film known as "The Australian Dirty Dancing" And then, the top ten films that were seen last year by Dave and Mikey, but not films that were actually from 2017. Some older movies like Arthur and Blade Runner and High Noon and newer films like Magnificent Seven and Captain Fantastic and Gone Baby Gone and much more.
It's a cold day in America, and to celebrate, Mikey and Dave invite in Friend of the Show, Wit Stillman Fan, Lover of Brie (Allison, Larsen, the cheese), Terrance Malick Apologist, Film Historian and Nobel Prize of Medicine Nominee of his work on armpit therapy, The Estimable Twitterless Dr. Earl discuss the most frozen films in cinema. First up, a little Rotten Tomatoes Potpourri, with some random films and random guesses... then, bringing up some of the lowest temperatures you'll find on the silver screen. The snow falls in "Inception"'s third act... with the wolves of "The Grey"... Sly on a snow covered mountain... trains circling a frozen planet... and so much more! Grab a blanket, stay cozy and enjoy the show!

The third part of the ongoing Sweet Sixteen series features the films of Julia Roberts! Mikey and Dave welcome 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 his work in UTI advancement, The Estimable Twitterless Dr Earl. And to get a female perspective, Friend of the Show Jennifer Kaufman calls in. The challenge -- to figure out Julia Roberts' best role ever. Is it Tink from "Hook"? Or maybe Darby from "The Pelican Brief"? Or maybe Isabel from "Stepmom" or Vivian from "Pretty Woman"?? The Deucecast crew matches them up, picks the winners and narrows them down. Which ultimate role will go onto the Big Bracket and join Castor Troy (Nic Cage) and Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) for a chance at the title of Greatest Movie Role Ever?
As the year ends, Mikey and Dave reflect upon the movies that weren't all that great, weren't all that good and perhaps are just downright terrible. And to do so, why not invite in Friend of the Show, Wit Stillman Fan, Lover of Brie (Allison, Larsen & the cheese), Terrance Malick Apologist, Film Historian and Nobel Prize of Medicine Nominee for his work in Toenail recycling, The Estimable Dr. Earl. The guys hit the best of the worst, the worst of the best and all parts in-between, with disappointments starring Goldberg, Robert DeNiro, Kevin Costner, chainsaws, Stephen King books, superheroes and so much more. Hope you are having a wonderful Christmas week and thanks for downloading!

It's the annual episode where Dave, Mikey & Pinky give their thanks to the movie industry for all the great things that have come about in the last year or so! But first, welcome in Friend of the Show Wit Stillman Fan, Brie Lover (Larsen, Allison, Cheese), Film Historian, Terrance Malick apologist and Nobel Prize for Proctological Medicine Dr. Earl! A round of Box Office Mojo with a new twist transpires, #AllTheChris, and then a great gob of thanks to Ryan Gosling's agent... to Ridley Scott... to Marvel... to NetFlix... to Soderburgh... and even more! Also... MY MAN!!! I DIG IT!!! ALRIGHT!!! Plus a great review of Justice League.
You'd think that with discussing long movies, Dave, Mikey & Pinky would make it a long episode. Ironically, it only takes them an hour to tell you about their favorite movies that clock in at 150 minutes or more. And what discussion about being long winded would be complete without the long winded Film Historian himself, the Wit Stillman fan, the Brie Lover (Allison, Larsen & the cheese), the Terrance Malick Apologist and winner of the Nobel Prize for Proctology, Dr Earl. Kicking off the episode, Birthday Movies reminds you of the fabulous films that came out in previous Novembers like Fred Claus (2007) and Starship Troopers (1997) and Piranha II (1982) and of course Dave's 50th favorite film of all time, The Bodyguard! Plus, a great reminder of Dr Earl's official diagnosis concerning the death of Whitney Houston. Then, a rousing game of Denzel, with names like Harrison Ford and Martin Starr and Sam Waterston and of course, Denzel Washington! Then, the Top Five takes on "overstuffed" movies, as in, those movies running 2 and a half hours or longer. The crew gives movies ranging from 153 minutes to a whopping 295 minutes... and if you watched all 20 of these films straight in a row, you'd be watching for almost 65 straight hours. Overstuffed films like Magnolia... Heat... Short Cuts... a Lord of the Rings film... JFK... and if you've ever wondered what is the most Inuit movie ever made, please pull up a sitting room chair to Dr. Earl's pretentious corner. Also, Mikey's Wyatt Earp loses again to Dave's Tombstone. And finally, America's favorite movie podcast segment featuring the musical stylings of OMD... Pretty in Pink!
