Each year, there are the movies that perhaps are not on Mikey's, Dave's, or #TwitterlessDrEarl's top fives or top tens, but they are still movies that surprised everyone... and delighted everyone... unexpected pleasant moviegoing experiences if you will.

The episode from last week was just so long, the only answer was to turn it into two shows over two weeks. This is not an achievement, this is more indicative of at least two of the three hosts of the show really needing to get out and experience life, instead of just watching every movie in existence.

If you thought the beginning of the year meant a slow down in movies seen by The Deucecast Movie Show crew -- Mikey, d$, and Dr. Earl -- then you obviously don't know these guys very well. The year starts with a bang with a heaping helping of film reviews, both new -- Spidey, West Side Story, Swan Song -- and old -- To the Wonder, Ernest -- and many, many more... So many, in fact, that the show was chopped into two pieces... this week, you get a great discussion on the Golden Globes, with winners announced as we record, plus the sad state of the once proud, if not eccentric affair. Then, reviews on almost 20 movies, with just as many coming next week. Here's what you can expect this week, including where they are streaming at recording time.

The new year has begun, winter is crashing around us, and it's time to reflect on what made our moviedom in the last year... and for the first time, we ask, Who Won the Year? Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl host this episode, with a Marky Mark game of Rotten Tomatoes sure to give you Good Vibrations... plus some chitchat on our new year's festivities, a few movies here and there, and of course, who won 2021... Everyone gives their top fives, including incredible acting performances... juicy roles... movie websites for movie lovers.. movie studios who swung for the fences... genre films... streaming services... and so much more... Plus, a stinger riff on Chris Pine...
In an annual tradition, out of the dozens of movies the Deucecast loved... and out of the hundreds of movies The Deucecast guys liked... there are those that just didn't land, or maybe even crashed and burned in a spectacularly bad way. Mikey, d$, and The Surgical Dr Earl welcome in the Spawn of Ryfun, Lil G Dawg, to discuss the bad, the terrible, the horrible, and the worst movies seen all year long. First up, a few "gifts" from the previous episode, as Dr Earl and Lil G discuss whatever the crap Malick is doing, while d$ gives Dr Earl his epic present for the year. And Dr Earl hands out some gifts of his very own! Then, a look at the worst of the worst, with bad Tom Holland... worst Anne Hathaway... crap Marvel films... sucktastic remakes... horrifically bad horror flicks... awful Lebron... a Costas Mandylor film... disappointing Jessie Spano... boring Hugh Jackman... the well made, good movies that d$ just didn't like, or get, the Nic Cage movie that broke Lil G...

If you listen to the episode, you may recognize the opening theme, the best time of the year, when the Deucecast Movie Show plays the official Christmas theme of the show. It truly is a Marshmallow World. Dave and Mikey, sans #TwitterlessDrEarl, are here once again to give out their annual Christmas gifts to the stars, and joining the show for the second time in the Christmas season, it's Spawn of Ryfun, Lil G himself Garrison Ryfun. First up, a quick conversation on Spider-Man No Way Home, then a round of Box Office Mojo, looking at the biggest money makers of 2021... Then the guys begin to give out the gifts! Ridley Scott has a present to open, if he can take it without telling Garrison to F off... Bruce Willis finds out that some gifts are harder to receive than others... Garrison plays piecemaker between Hobbs and Dom... and Dave has a few films to dish out to the group.

Feliz Navidad and Happy Holidays to the Deucecast Family! It's the annual Christmas list episode, and Dave, Mikey, and #TwitterlessDrEarl keep with tradition and bring on one of our favorite past and future guests, Carnegie Hall showstopper, podcaster, mother of an undisclosed amount of offspring, and the voice the d$ has a crush on -- Jennifer Kaufman! Kaufman checks in with her latest, this time calling from the road, as Dave dives in with birthday movies (La La Land is legit 5 years old... and Jerry Maguire is 25... what...) and then a Hallmark themed round of Faux or Shaux... which movie titles are real, and which are unreal. Finally, the movie families that each of the crew would want to spend their holidays with... from a super time with the Parrs to the richness of the Faders to having a wonderful life at Christmas to a holiday in the upper West side to Earl's pretentiousness overall to Jennifer with a Colin/Hugh choice to happy Sirius. It's a fantastic time, a fun hour of laughs and movie memories, and even a little magic tossed in there.
It's that time... Christmas time is here... it's time for Christmas vacation! Well, not quite... but almost! On the first day of December, Mike, d$, and #TwitterlessDrEarl kicks off the month of Festive Movie Cheer with the first of several Christmas episodes... and this one is a doozy, as the trio tries to determine the best Christmas movie role of all time. And yes, this is part of the Big Bracket Canon, that being the winner advances to the 32 movie role Big Bracket, now tentatively planned for September 2023... Expect the long shots -- the JTTs and the Refs and those with handcuffs for the holidays. And the classics, including Santa, good and Bad, and Clause, and a Prime Minister and both Sally AND Harry. And of course, the favorites, the Buddys, the Ralphies, the Kevins, the Clarks of the season. One by one, they are pitted against each other, with votes being cast to determine who moves on, who is out, and which Christmas movie character stands tall at the end.
The holiday season is beginning to unfold, and with The Deucecast Movie Show, it begins with the annual DeuceGiving episode! This is the episode where Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessButNotDiscordlessDrEarl gives their thanks! Not just the traditional thanks, but this year, appreciation to movies returning... thinking about Ep 500... free streaming services... kudos to the fans... and of course, the lovers, the dreamers, and we...
