Another year is in full swing for The Deucecast Movie Show, and there is so much to get to in the coming weeks... however... first up, the monthly ReFlicktions show! This is where Mikey, Pinky & Dave give a huge rundown of the movies seen in the last month. And this time, the guys are joined by frequent guest, movie historian and Terrance Malick apologist The Good Dr Earl... and RetroZap founder Joe Tavano. The Deucecast Movie Show has joined RetroZap Podcasting Network, and Joe is here not only to welcome the show (or perhaps the hosts have just invited themselves?) but to talk a little about RetroZap and how great it is.

Bryan Cranston's amazing performance in a pretty good movie... Christian Bale's amazing performance in a really good movie... and Tom Hardy's upstaging of Leo DiCaprio by giving an amazing performance in an amazing movie. And, of course, Dr Earl and Maria Conchita Alonso have a moment. Movies discussed this month: Star Wars The Force Awakens... Ridiculous Six… Krampus… Ex Machina… Flash Gordon… Bill Murray’s Very Murray Christmas… Spotlight… The Loft… The Running Man… Crazy Love… Creed… Trumbo… The Babadook… Girlfriends… That Sugar Film… Hateful Eight… Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure… Dune… Me, Earl & the Dying Girl… Bone Tomahawk… Sharknado… Joy… Pootie Tang… The Departed… License to Drive… Alien… The Iron Sheik… William Shatner’s Chaos on the Bridge… Sisters… Hotel Rwanda… Trojan War… Take Shelter… Shotgun Stories… People Places Things… The Revenant

 Episode 206: All Time Top 100... 20 through 11 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

It's getting ever closer, that being the All Time Top 100 favorite movies of Mikey, Pinky & d$... but first, the ten movies that lead up to it. James Cameron gets some love with a waterlogged sci-fi film... Spielberg gets love with two films on two lists... Indiana Jones makes an appearance... Mikey has to defend really crappy movies like Dune... a great romantic comedy with a Bill Withers tune... the difference in Diehard and Diehard 2... the great music from a Daniel Day-Lewis classic... Tarantino meets Uma... Mikey gives you a few movies you can't refuse... And the guys spend not only ten minutes on a Bryan Adams 90s tune, but also a huge Celine Dion hit from the late 90s. Plus... hear Mikey use the phrase "F me, he cleared it!" and Pinky say, "It's a great love story! And at the end, you get to see a boat sink!" The numbers get smaller and the movies get bigger!

 Episode 205: The 2015 Lumps of Coal | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

It's a short show this week, so we hope you had a Merry Christmas and hope you do have a Happy, Happy New Year!  First, we say goodbye to Shotglass Digital Network... thanks Jimmy & the Shotglass family.  You guys have been amazing to our show and we cannot show enough appreciation for that! This week, we go over the absolute dreck from the last year, discussing the five worst films we've seen in 2015.  Not all of them are from the last 12 months, but these are the worst films we've seen in those 12 months. And we are talking baaaaaad films.  Not craptastic films.  Not films that are so bad they are good.  No.  Bad movies.  Horrible movies.  Movies that feature Jordana Brewster at the top.  Movies that say "Starring Kate Heigl".  Movies that feature the words "Cat" and "Woman" together. Hear about what might be the biggest waste of a good cast to make a bad movie... hear Pinky get angry about a movie... hear d$ rail against The Fantastic Four (again)... hear Mikey talk about the movie that might be one of the worst films he's ever seen, this year or not. That's all on the 2015 Lumps of Coal Episode!!

 Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens Special | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Because we love Star Wars: The Force Awakens so much, we decided to do a quick review show of the movie itself. Spoilers? Not at first! We give a big overview of the movie itself, its possibly legacy and how great it is, then give a 10 second countdown to the beginning of spoilers. Be warned:  If you are still listening after those 10 seconds, and you haven't seen the movie... first, what is wrong with you?  But second, we will ruin it for you -- but you will have plenty of warning. Also joining the show is old school The Deucecast contributor and now co-host of Card Trader Illuminerdy Podcast, Hurricane Rhett Barnett.  Enjoy the bonus episode and Merry Christmas!!!

 Episode 204: Our Grown-Up Celebrity Christmas List | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Merry Christmas!  Kwanzaa!  Hanukkah!  Holidays!  Festivus!  Boxing Day!  And all of that!  It's the last of our month long Christmas episode series, as we bring on not only Dr. Earl, but host of the Remodeling Clay podcast, Clay Shaver! The episode kicks off with Santa Mikey bestowing gifts upon the group (mostly from his own VHS collection... and by most, we mean "all") and then to a great game of Denzel. And then, The Deucecast Movie Show opens up the Santa bag and hands out great Christmas gifts to some Hollywood actors & actresses... like Shailene Woodley... and Jake Gyllenhaal... and Terrance Malick... Rick Moranis... Lindsay Lohan and many more, getting the gifts they deserve! Plus, the "30 Year Reboot Rule" gets introduced for the first time... and... Mikey extends the olive branch to none other than Anna Kendrick... get your Christmas spirit this week with our Christmas Movie Show!

 Episode 202: Favorite Family Movies (ft Jennifer Kaufman!) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

It's Christmas time and family is upon us as usual, meaning people everywhere, all over the house, getting all up in your way -- especially the kids.  So you need some safe movies to put on the TV for the children to watch, and we are here to help! And because we know you have a 1000 cartoons around, we make our list all non-animated. Pinky, Mikey & d$ bring in the co-host of the Disney Nerds Podcast and the (sort of sometimes) host of the Delightful Life Podcast, Jennifer Kaufman! After birthday movies (how old is Jumanji?!), Jennifer joins the guys for a spirited discussion on... Disney Bathrooms?  And Journey Into Imagination with Figment?  The secret of the pin board at the Pin Traders in Disney Springs?  Isn't this a movie show? What!? A rousing round of Box Office Mojo gives us the lowdown on the biggest box office earners in 2015... then, we dive into The Good Dinosaur. The group gives a great assortment of Non-Animated Family Films, including Muppet movies... The Santa Clause... The Goonies.. The Wizard of Oz... and a random appearance by Dr Earl helps the lists get even better! (The Descendants?!)  Plus, are the Muppets irrelevant to the younger generation?  Great discussion. Somewhere in there, you'll get a new level of the battle between "A Christmas Story" and "Christmas Vacation"... "Wicked" vs "The Wizard of Oz"... "The Wiz" vs "Dreamgirls"... how many kids Jennifer needs for a reality show... Mikey's daughter's strange crushes... Where Die Hard & Gremlins fall in the "Christmas Movie" listings... the wasted potential of Lindsay Lohan... and where Amy Adams & d$ finally got together. And to wrap the show up, its the movie segment that is sweeping the nation, or at least our neighborhood where we broadcast, its Pretty in Pink, with a review of The Running Man!

 Episode 201: Top 100... 30 to 21 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

It's another All Time Top 100 Episode, this time taking our 30th favorite all time films (like Harrison Ford's "Witness") and counting down to each of our 21st favorite films. We also attempt to answer questions like "Why does 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding' get brought up so much?" and "Where did that LEGO Clock come from?" and "Is this the age of the Joey Fatonassaince?" and "Where did Fisher, the former housecat of the Deuce, really get his name?"... and, of course, "What's in the booooooox????" You'll also get the story of how Johnny Depp was able to create the Capt. Jack Sparrow we all know and love against the wishes of Disney brass.  We share some Bruce Springsteen from what Pinky & Mikey call a straight up "This is a d$ movie".  You'll also find out what movie makes Producer Tommy nod his head in full approval. Also, hear some great music snippets from favorites like "Jerry Maguire" and "Inside Man"... and finally... the first movie that two of us have ranked exactly the same...

 Episode 200: DeuceGiving 2015!! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

It's our 200th round of pop culture & movie talk!  And it falls on one of our favorite weeks of the year, Thanksgiving, just in time for our annual DeuceGiving Episode... We invite frequent show contributor Dr Earl to the show, along with former co-host of the show (waaay back in the first 30 eps or so) Matt Rector for this journey into the past and future. First up, the 2nd round of The Game of Games, a collection of games that we play every 100 episodes--can Dr Earl retain his title from winning during episode 100? Then, we list our top five actresses we are currently thankful, those great chicks who make every movie they are in better, and manage to even make bad movies bearable.  Emily Blunt!  Brie Larson!  And who doesn't love Jessica Chastain?! We bring back one of the oldest segments from the early days of the show, The Beverage Tasting, as Mikey brings in Moxie for everyone in studio to get a taste of... somehow, it results in a pretty terrible Boss Nass Phantom Menace imitation. And somehow, we randomly end up name dropping "Trees Lounge" with Steve Buscemi and Dr. Earl's hope for "Air Con 2". Next up are the actors we are thankful for, including a great discussion on Tom Hanks, plus attempts to say "Chiwetel Ejiofor", Chris Pratt's rise and more love for the Fassbender. And no 200th episode would be complete without the one time return of... Seagal Watch. Thanks for downloading our show, be it for the 1st, the 10th, the 120th or 200th time...

 Episode 199: Holidays! Force Awakens! Sci Fi Guilty Pleasures! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

It's the penultimate episode before we hit a major milestone... but before we get to 200, we gotta knock out 199, and we bring a heavy hitter to do just that!  Shazbazzar from TechnoRetro Dads Podcast calls in to discuss being a geek, watching fantasy & science fiction, and guilty pleasures.  Put them all together and we have Fave Sci Fi/Fantasy Guilty Pleasures via a miracle of technology! Also joining d$, Mikey, Pinky & Shaz for the show is Friend of the Show, Terence Malick Apologist and Movie Historian, the honorable Dr. Earl! Kicking off, a discussion on the new Star Wars The Force Awakens trailer that premiered a few weeks ago during Monday Night Football, and what it takes for Mikey to break down into tears: "I'm pregnant with Star Wars..." Plus, the excitement of the long forgotten tradition of going and standing in line for actual tickets to a movie coming out... Then, moving on to Rotten Tomatoes, with a round of 1980s classic films to guess the score on. A Holiday Movie Preview gives a quick take on upcoming films like the latest Rocky film, "Creed", as Apollo's son gets in the ring... Zac Efron as Han Solo, maybe... Daniel Radcliffe as "Igor" in a Frankenstein take... the limited release "The Ridiculous 6" on Netflix... the Star Wars coming out... Tina Fey & Amy Poehler in "Sisters"... the agenda driven "Concussion"... the horrible idea to remake "Point Break"... J-Law in "Joy"... Pinky's dream of "The Hateful 8"... and "The Reverent" Finally, the real reason for the show... the Favorite Sci Fi / Fantasy guilty pleasure films, including a Kris Kristofferson time travel classic...  a forgotten Star Wars ripoff billed as "A Magnificent Seven in Space"... why "Face / Off" is not really a guilty pleasure... a movie that features Kangaroo Warriors... sending Hilary Swank to the center of the Earth... the movie known as The Longest Taco Bell Commercial in History... Greg Evigan vs Peter Weller in the battle of undersea aliens... And to wrap up, a Pretty in Pink featuring "Hellraiser"

 Episode 198: All-Time Fav Top 100... 40 thru 31 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

As Casey Kasem would say, "The numbers get smaller, the hits get bigger"... while he would go on to introduce the latest tune from Nu Shooz or the recent top ten hit from Whitney Houston, we instead will continue our countdown to our all time favorite films. In this latest group of ten (or 30, as ten each from Mikey, d$ & Pinky), you'll hear quick discussions on... one of the greatest WWII movies ever made... a recent Joseph Gordon-Levitt instant classic... one of the coolest films d$ has ever seen... one of the coolest films anyone has ever seen... Jack Black's magnum opus... Harrison Ford being Amish... Harrison Ford being framed... Harrison Ford going crazy... Harrison Ford being crusadey... the multiple endings and expansive casts of Middle Earth... a musical number from d$'s love Amy Adams... Audrey Hepburn finding love with Humphrey Bogart... opinions on an all female cast of a classic... Plus, this is the night Mikey forgets everything... And, if you ever wanted to know who that guy is who played the main terrorist not named Hans Gruber in DieHard, you'll find that answer here.

 Episode 197: November ReFlicktions | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Click.  Clique.  Bang.  And then you find a movie that no one should like, but ya just can't help yourself. Another fine episode of movie chatter, with Mikey, d$ & Pinky, feeling the Oscar buzz in the air! After the birthday movies (how old is The Legend of Bagger Vance?  And GoldenEye turned what?), we jump into the movies we've seen in the last few months. Topics discussed include... the great movie choices Emily Blunt has been making... could Benecio del Toro be a less flashy, but better, Johnny Depp... The Martian book vs The Martian movie... Dark Places book vs Dark Places movie... the lack of God in the God-driven true story of "The Captive"... has Tom Hanks reached the point where he's not a character, he's always Tom Hanks... d$'s new love of Elizabeth Olsen...

 Episode 196: Deuceoween MikeTober 2015 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

It's the witching hour, it's the haunted time of the year, its the scariest part of the year... its Deuceoween, featuring the return of MikeTober! First, d$, Mikey, Pinky, & Friend of the Show Jeremy Burgess, coming live from the Orlando Film Festival where he is promoting his Indie Short Film "Dead Saturday",dust off an old favorite called Reel or Unreel, guessing what movie is a real reel out of a group of unreal reels based on the terrible descriptions of the movies themselves... "Children of the Forlorn"?  "Hell Night"?  Or even "Measuring Tape, Measuring Death"? Then Jeremy and Pinky discuss some of their favorite horror films seen this month--"Hausu" and "Cannibal Holocaust" and "The Vanishing" (both original and remake) and more. We give a Wes Craven tribute, discussing a few of his classics like "The Hills Have Eyes", the Scream Series and the three Nightmare on Elm Street films he worked on, plus a few clunkers too ("The People Under the Stairs", anyone?), and the impact on the horror genre he had... plus, how great was it to be in a film called "Tales from the Crapper"?  That's not a fake title, by the way. Then, MikeTober 2015 comes full circle, as Mikey discusses the five films assigned to him by the show and it's friends.  Mikey hates horror movies, so this was a chore for him... what does he think about "Hellraiser" or "Creepshow" or "The Omen" or "Nightmare on Elm Street"?   Plus more discussion on the real director of "Poltergeist". And to discuss "Sleepaway Camp", we make an unplanned call to Remodeling Clay Shaver to discuss the film--and most notably, the ending of it all.

 Episode 195: Underrated Villains | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

"I could be a friend to you..." The All Saints Day is coming up!  This week we start our Halloween celebration with the first of two Halloween episodes... first up, our list of underrated villains. But first, a sequeltastic round of Box Office Mojo, where d$ facepalms while Mikey, Pinky & the Terrance Malick Apologist himself, Dr Earl, limp and struggle through to name popular movies that were 2nd in a series (or had the #2 in the title).  Films like Toy Story 2 and Spiderman 2 make it, while The Amazing Spiderman 2 and Aliens don't... ...and don't hit your head too hard as you scream at the radio at all the obvious films that are not mentioned.  Seriously, it's embarrassing, with the new point system, and Producer Tommy with his new found buzzer. Then, the villains we talk about all the time are those like Darth Vader and Hannibal Lecter and Scar from The Lion King... but what about Agent Smith?  Mr Joshua?  What about Killian?  The Kurgan? Or even The Sisters in Shawshank?   Those villains that don't get the proper amount of love in movie lore. And join us next week for MikeTober and a retrospective on Wes Craven!!

 Episode 194: Top 100... 50 thru 41 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

"I had talked about 'The Player'... Pinky had talked about 'The Fighter'... and then... 'The Bodyguard'. Uhhh..." It's another special episode as we crest the hill on the 100 Favorite Films of all time, working our way into the All Time Top 50! Great discussions on Barry Levinson's "Good Morning Vietnam"... Lots of Tarantino love... a Kevin Kline triple play... Cyrano de Bergerac via Steve Martin... more Harrison Ford appearances... 1980s Kerri Green... the joys of being spoiler free before the internet... what happened to Aaron Eckhart... the Break Up Rom Com section of Pinky's list... Adam Sandler's almost turn as The Bear Jew... and being sold on Christian Bale's Batman...
