On this episode of The Deucecast Movie Picture Show, Mikey, Pinky & the Dave discuss the topic of movies that no one likes but us... those crappy films that for whatever reason, we personally just love. A game of Reel or Unreel guesses on movies where chicks get acid throws in their faces (and finds love!)... a knock off of Training Day... and lots of Tyler Perry mentions. We also give full on discussions of the latest films, include This is the End... and a spirited discussion of Man of Steel (one loved it... one liked it... and one say "eh")... and also, a talk on the classic baseball story The Sandlot. Each host's Top Five of 2013 is introduced... and a lengthy ReFlicktions as well. Amongst topics discussed are "How is Amanda Seyfried like a McGriddle?"... "M. Night Shymalan has a real problem"... "The Last Airbender blew"... "When is Mikey's wife Ashley leaving?"... and "How many bases would Mikey cover if he were alone with Kevin Costner?" Films discussed in depth this week: Black Dog Employee of the Month Escape from Alcatraz Extreme Measures Funny Farm Gone Home Alone 3 Home on the Range Honey, I Blew Up the Kid Hot Rod Hudson Hawk Lady in the Water Man of Steel Meatballs II Mo Money Place Beyond the Pines Platoon That Guy... in that Thing The Purge The Sandlot Snake Eyes Super This is the End Upsteam Color Next week... The Deucecast Intermission: Seven Samurai... and the following week, we discuss the best and worst films made from TV shows....
It's our first Intermission! During Intermission weeks, we'll take a single movie and discuss it. Typically a "classic" movie, and typically one that most of us hadn't seen before. This week we start with a foreign film: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. Did you know it was foreign? Filmed in Spain by an Italian director, with actors from all over, each actor performed in his native language, and all dialogue was dubbed for each country where it was released. This is the third and final film Clint Eastwood made with director Sergio Leone; Eastwood had grown tired of Leone's temperament and the perfectionist long shooting days, turning down a fourth film a year later, which went to Charles Bronson (1968's Once Upon A Time in the West). Anyway, we spend some time now discussing the film. If you haven't seen it yet, it's not too late; give it a view, and come back to listen. Or, just listen and decide if you want to watch it. But, we think it's safe to say that anyone in our particular audience won't regret watching it. Enjoy!
This is not the usual yadda yadda yadda! Welcome to The Deucecast Movie Picture Show. We have enjoyed the all-over-the-map format of the last 100 episodes, but we are streamlining things! We share a lot of interests, but our favorite is Movies. So, that's what the show will be about. No more entertainment news, no more Demi Levato tweets, no more Music Minute. Our goal is to bring you an entertaining and enlightening conversation about a particular movie-related topic, do it in less time than before, and do it every other week. In the alternating weeks, we'll be even more focused in what we bring you in our "Intermission" (details below...) And yes, Dr. Earl has ramped up our ADHD meds to allow us to be so focused. We hope you enjoy, thank you so much for listening, and let us know what you think! This WeekIn this first episode of our new format (and 101st episode overall), it's Pinky's first time as a regular co-host alongside d$, and Mikey, and Dr. Earl joins us as well. Our topic of big discussion is "Disappointing Summer Blockbusters," or, "those movies we had high hopes for in summers past... films that we wanted to be so good, but ended up being so bad." Like, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen ... Superman III ... Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull ... Speed Racer ... The Last Airbender ... and Green Lantern. And, according to Dr Earl, The Return of the Jedi?!?! What are some of yours? Your homework for next week: Watch The Good, The Bad and The UglyNext week we'll bring you our first "Intermission" episode, where we spend a shorter amount of time discussing a single movie. Most will come from the IMDB Top 250 list, or the AFI Top 100, and be movies most of us haven't ever gotten around to watching. First up: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. Does it hold up? Watch it for yourself and then tune in next week for the discussion. No excuses: find it on Amazon (free to stream for Prime members), at your local library, or maybe, if you Google hard enough, you can find it somewhere else online: In two weeks:On the next episode of The Deucecast Movie Picture Show, we feature Hurricane Rhett with the topic of "Movies That No One Likes... But Me". And...here are a few more of the 43 movies discussed this episode: Airport 77 Iron Man 3 Star Trek Into Darkness Gangster Squad Jack Reacher After Earth Fast & Furious 6 The Great Gatsby The Hangover Part III From Russia With Love Lars & the Real Girl GI Joe Retaliation
After two long years, we have finally reached the pinnacle of success... the One Hundreth Episode of The Deucecast. And for the 100th go-round, we brought in all the big names... Hurricane Rhett comes in... Pinky joins us... Dr Earl is here for a visit... Tommy and Shawn are in to produce... and the wonderful Deucecast First Lady Stephanie hangs out on the annex couch. We kick it off with Mikey discussing his concert going... his anniversary... the Band of Horses... The Features... Meghan Elliott... Michael Warren... Hurricane Rhett and his adventures with the (literally) bloody guy in the median... Dr. Earl and the Story of the Duck Dynasty Pillow... Pinky's finally finished with finals... Stephanie and her travel buddies (23 months and 5 months old)... d$'s problem with Campbell and why he missed last week... What might be the final Music Minute, Mikey brings back Tune-Yards(Rhett's Favorite Worst of the Worst)... and we declare a winner of the Awesome Bracket, deciding which is more awesome... Steak... or The Empire Strikes Back... The Game of Games is here. We get Faux or Shaux... The IMDb... Ryan Phillippe...

Now... we take a break for a few weeks... and we will be back in June with an ALL NEW, retooled, redone Deucecast... join us!
We're back, and one step closer to the highly anticipated Episode 100, but first we bring you Episode 99, sans Dave. Not to fear though, Mike has support from Dr. Earl and Pinky. On this episode Mike talks about his boredom at VeggieTales Live!, Dr. Earl acts like it's no big deal to ski at Breckenridge, CO, and Pinky nods and smiles at the two old dudes talking about stuff that old dudes talk about. Producer Tommy brings in a very special drink from Wally World called Mistic. We, of course, make Pinky try the Carrot Orange flavor. Mike brings us a new music from the "Yeah Yeah Yeahs," and without Dave there is no palate cleanser, so Mike prevails in bringing the listener the best music on a podcast recorded on a Wednesday night from a basement off the 280 corridor. We have a listener-fueled "Dying with Dr. Earl" with some very hard-hitting medical questions for the Good Doctor. A new movie game Mike calls "You're Quite the Character" is introduced, and based upon Dr. Earl's wisdom (not his age) he dominates young Pinky. We wrap up the show with a Big 3 discussion on our most anticipated summer movies, and, of course, Dr. Earl has to mention some random Terrence Malick film. Be sure to join us next week for Episode 100. We are having tons of guests, including a very special guest from out of town.
It's another step closer to silencing the critics who said we'd never make it to 100... or those who never said we'd make it to 10. That includes Hurricane Rhett, who joins us tonight for our 98th journey into the airwaves of eternal podcastial lore and love. We kick it off by answering the age ol' question... can you still poke on Facebook? d$ finds out. We hear another word from our sponsor, and we begin our regaling of sordid tales of StadiumFest and if Switchfoot ducked the Jesus word... what is the name of that Christian clown guy?!.... more trips to the zoo for Mikey and the family... K-Mart's brilliant, edgy ad (and whether we've ever heard the words "edgy", "brilliant" and "K-Mart" in concurrent usage in a sentence... the difference in bike helmets and storm helmets... and McDonald's customer service problem. Mikey has some band that sounds like a mexican Lisa Loeb... d$ has not one, but TWO palet cleansers... and we dive into the Final Four of the Awesome Bracket... Movies discussed tonight include "The Place Beyond the Pines"... "Green Lantern" (!)... "American Loser"... "Django Unchained"... "The Campaign"... and the possibility of Dr. Earl's favorite movie getting a sequel... that's right, the Terrance Malick/Method Man collaboration of a possible second "How High" movie. Our Big Three gives us our favorite TV Finales of All Time, including thoughts on BSG... Lost... 24... Wonder Years and more... Plus, we dig on Disney's plans for more and more Star Wars... the prospect of the Justice League movie... the upcoming Superman film and its lack of kryptonite... the love of The Clone Wars... more rants on Facebook moms... Psy's new cut... Ryan Gosling and ninjas... And of course... Demi Lovato Plus?
