In 1971, Peter Bogdavich shot a film in black and white, casted relative unknowns like Jeff Bridges, Cybill Shepherd, Randy Quaid and Timothy Bottoms, along with old Hollywood legends like Ben Johnson, and created a masterpiece film about a dying small town from the 50s buried in West Texas. Winner of 2 Academy Awards and nominated for 8, the guys tackle The Last Picture Show in this latest Intermission episode. P!nky, d$ and Mikey discuss the plot, the making of and the legacy of this classic... we hope you enjoy it, and we hope you watch the film itself!
We are finally wrapping up our panels from the Alabama Phoenix Festival, as this time it's a group discussion all about Star Wars Episode VII... what we expect, what we want to see, what we do NOT want to see, our predictions, and lots and lots of unfounded speculation.

On August 11th, 2014, we movie lovers had a tremendous loss occur with the passing of one of the most prolific actors of our generation, that being Robin Williams. So the guys--d$, Mikey and P!nky--along with special in-studio guests Hurricane Rhett and Matty the Former Co-Host, with a special appearance by Deucecast Sweetheart Steph, pay tribute to Robin Williams by doing a full retrospective. The guys don't dive into Robin's private life, his struggles or his demons, leaving that for other shows... instead, they track his complete career from beginning to the most recent films, sometimes breezing past a few, other times, like "Good Will Hunting", "Good Morning Vietnam", "Dead Poets Society", "Aladdin" and more, taking their time and having a great discussion on those films. Join us as we have a great time celebrating the films of Robin Williams--and yes, acknowledging the fact there were some clunkers too--on this episode of The Deucecast Movie Picture Show

The normal crew of Dave, Pinky, and Mike is joined by special guests Rhett and Former Co-Host Matt to discuss all aspects of the movie. Rhett of course has to find some things to complain about. We hope you enjoy the craziness that was this episode.
The gang is all here today, with a shorter episode as we continue our weekly excursion into movie discussion excellence! Mikey, P!nky and d$ kick it off with a quick revisit to movies like The Truman Show and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan before diving into the main topic... Reboots is the discussion this time around, as the guys bring up classic franchise reboots, everything from Oceans 11 to Batman films to Marvel movies to... Cheaper by the Dozen? What?

We recorded each panel and will be releasing them all over the next several months. The first in this series of panels is about the Emmy Award winning Animated Series Star Wars: The Clone Wars. This particular panel was specifically about the Sixth Season of this amazing show. Mike and special guest Shazbazzar of the Techno Retro Dads podcast break down each episode and lead a rousing discussion about the series. We hope you enjoy it.
Welcome back to the best podcast concerning movies with hosts named P!nky, Mikey and d$ that you will hear today... NAY... this week. Maybe even this month. Dare I say... ever?

Here comes your movie-guiding-light through tumult of bad film and greatness of good cinema... whatever that means. Mikey, P!nky and d$ once again take the microphones, sans two turntables, to tell you about all the good and bad movies they've seen, what you should see and avoid, and to rib P!nky about his growing Jimmy Stewart obsession. We discuss at length films like The Amazing Spider Man 2... A Million Ways to Die in the West... Neighbors... It's a Wonderful Life... and of course, X-Men: Days of Future Past... A stirring game of Ryan Phillippe holds forth, moderated skillfully by P!nky (how many Chris Cooper movies can YOU name?) and our first edition of Pretty in Pink, where Mikey and d$ make the prediction as to how much he liked Dirty Dancing upon seeing it recently for the first time. The guys then hold the first ever 2014 Deucecast BadA** Draft, where we decide which action characters would fill up a 10 person roster of the most awesome, kick buttedness team we could possibly put together... names like John Matrix (Commando)... Ripley (Alien)... James Bond (the Casino Royale version)... Jason Bourne... and who picks The Bear Jew from Inglorious Basterds? Find out! A great discussion is had on the upcoming Star Wars dealings, including recent casting news and a prospective one-off film, and what the guys think it will be, then a rabbit trail discussion on how Disney and Star Wars is faring against Harry Potter at Universal Studios in Orlando.

Sometimes you do things, like podcast episodes, that you are so proud of, you want to yell to the Heavens and say, "Look at what we've done! Look at our splendor of Awesomesauce!" And when The Deucecast Movie Picture Show has an episode like that, we'll make sure to let our fans know... BUT we did record an episode that we do like very much... because it is on our level. That's right, in this episode, d$, Mikey and P!nky take on "Stupid Movies". Movies that aren't very smart, movies that perhaps wanted to be great and ended up being kinda dumb (Scream IV)... or really dumb (Airheads)... but that are loved very much in spite of, perhaps for that, very reason! In depth discussions on really stupid films like The Adventures of Buckaroo Bonsai... Double Impact... Flash Gordon... Honey I Blew Up the Kid.. Con Air.. Snake Eyes... and yes, Batman Forever. The Three are joined in The Deucecast Studios by new friend of the show Mackey, and returning friend of the show, Drew / Morris, while producers Tommy and Shawn also wait in the wings. And ol' pal Tom Johnson walks through the door at some point. P!nky and d$ go through a lengthy discussion of little known parody film The Starving Games while Mikey grins in earnest... and although Kurt Russell's Breakdown was P!nky's assigned film to watch, he ends up watching another film instead... with surprising results. The topics also hit hot button issues like, Johnny Depp's career... where Star Wars will be in 50 years... and what might it look like if JJ Abrams bombs in Episode VII... the guys play a rousing game of "Box Office Mojo" and give the latest incarnation of the Top Five of 2014. Join us next month, as it's a kick off to summer with MANLY MOVIES... plus a whole lot more fun and the gang being testosteroney (which is the REAL San Francisco treat) Movies discussed at length this episode: Beauty & the Beast Captain America: Winter Soldier Convoy Draft Day End of Watch The Grand Budapest Hotel Lovelace Noah Oculus The Starving Games True Romance Unbreakable

Its been a month since you've had the honor of hearing our voices in your earbuds, but thankfully for your sanity, we are here again! And once again, we question why we let Dr Earl even come on this show...So much to do this month, as we not only discuss ALL the Oscar nominations and make our picks for the winners (the Academy Awards are March 2nd), we also reveal ALL the winners for the First Annual Deucie Awards... Will Her win out for Best Screenplay? Will Cate Blanchett also win the Deucie for Best Actress? And could Jaden Smith really win an award for the worst acting performance of 2013? You betcha. We nod our head to Philip Seymour Hoffman and Sid Caesar, who we lost in the last few weeks, and then discuss the movies we've seen since the last time we met, including Philomena... Robocop, the old and new... James Gandolfini's triumphant Enough Said... and Pinky's disdain for minions in Despicable Me 2 On the annex couch, Dr Earl also joins us for the discussion, with his latest and greatest tripe he's over the moon about... Russian Ark, anyone? Plus... a nod to... Car Talk?!

First, though, there are the list of movies they've seen in the last few weeks, including 2 Guns, The Wolverine and Blue Jasmine, plus Mikey loves Riddick... Our "See This, Not That" game challenges the guys to find a good and a bad movie with Julia Roberts, Kevin James and more... while Pinky struggles bigtime with The Movie Game. The main topic is Football films, like The Blind Side and The Waterboy and Any Given Sunday, plus heated debates about whether Jerry Maguire, The Last Boy Scout or Lucas are actually football films... hmm... Join us next week on The Deucecast Intermission, as we take on the bloody mess that is Scarface, and while d$ is out for the following The Deucecast Movie Picture Show, Mikey and Pinky hold down the fort with whatever they feel like discussing!
