Oscar nominations are out! Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl spend an hour full of Oscar talk... and the fun thing is that when the recording of this episode happens, nominations aren't out yet. So the guys get to make bold predictions on Oscar noms that have already happened now. Who swings and misses wildly? Who calls an Animated nom? And who was the genius who called the Bradley Cooper snub and only 7 nominations for Star is Born?? Dr Earl also pontificates on a recent viewing of M. Night's sophomore effort "Unbreakable" (of which the recent "Glass" is a sequel to), a re-watch after about 12 or 15 years. Then the Denzel game makes a stirring comeback, with shout outs to Mila Kunis, James Franco, and Mikey's Boo K-Cost, and who could forget Chuckles the Ape... The top five this go-round takes a look at all the Academy Award Best Picture winners, including a look at the Godfather, the life-ness of Talia Shire, and what is the Good Dinosaur of Mobster movies... a rundown of the other movies that didn't win in the same year of the movies selected... some hot Sidney Poitier talk... the importance of Titanic in Dave's life...
Another 2018 in review episode commences, all leading up to the Top Ten of 2018 (coming soon!), but this around, its the Movie Surprises of 2018. Mikey, Dave, and Alison Brie Larsen Lover #TwitterlessDrEarl welcome in Mr Independent himself, Friend of the Show Jeremy Burgess to talk all about a little of everything. Kicking in first with a review of Burgess' IMDb page and some random up and coming actors in the area, including the infamous Daniel Scheinert (who??), an untitled project that Burgess may or may not have let slip (what??) and a rousing round of Rotten Tomatoes Potpourri... one that lasts a long time because four people playing to five can sometimes take a while. Then, the crew jumps into the topic at hand, the movies in 2018 that surprised everyone -- didn't think they'd enjoy but sat back and thought "Well whaddya know, that was pretty entertaining..." Movies like Hotel Artemis... Aquaman... more Nic Cage... The Heartbreak Kid Mr. Wrestlemania The Showstopper HBK Shawn Michaels... and even some Venom Venom... Venom Venom Venom....

January rolls on, and January is full of episodes reflecting upon 2018. Last week, Mikey, Dave, #TwitterlessDrEarl and Friend of the Show Jeremy Burgess recanted their least fave films of 2018, and this week, its the Not 2018 Top Ten. And to do so, it takes a mega-episode to recap. Burgess gets a new theme song... film festival schedules... the movie goals and not-goals of the movie crew... Are You There God, It's Me Margaret... Plus the top ten lists of favorite movies seen in 2018 that didn't actually come out in 2018... from 1937 all the way up to 2017.

And the films for the 2nd Annual Burgentine's Day are revealed at last.
It's become an annual rite of passage... the films that the Deucecast likes to call "Lumps of Coal", those being the worst movies seen over the last 12 months. Films like "Justice League" and "Colonia" and "Terminator Genysis" and even "Pootie Tang" (thanks Pinky!) have all worn the banner of shame. Which films wear it this year? Find out when Mikey and Dave bring in #TwitterlessDrEarl, and invite in Friend of the Show and Miss Independent himself Jeremy Burgess to talk about the... movies that just aren't for the guys. First up, the birthday films, including the good (Taken, She's All That, Whiplash), the bad (Bride Wars, Boyhood, Paul Blart) and the ugly (Braddock: Mission in Action III) that came out in the month of January in year's past. And then, a fun and light discussion on the films that just weren't as agreeable in 2018... with some Disney blunders... being WAR READY... traveling with Marky Mark... bad Wakowski Sibs... and of course, Nic Cage.

Jennifer Garner getting more serious... Rian Johnson a real non-sci fi franchise... and much, much more. Oh, and Clay has a new idea for the masses along the lines of his legendary 30 year reboot rule.
Sometimes you watch a movie and are riveted, sometimes you watch a movie and are sad, sometimes you watch a movie and it makes you scared... and then sometimes you are just satisfied because the movie is delightful. Its frickin' delightful. It's a Frickin Movie Delight. Mikey, Dave and #TwitterlessDrEarl welcome in Friend of the Show "No Just" Clay Shaver, to a talk about that type of movie... but first, the inaugural "Jump to Conclusions" segment (stolen unabashedly from the ESPN Campus Conversation podcast)! The guys discuss the future box office of Avengers Endgame... the future awards for A Star is Born... and how good will Aquaman actually be? Then, the movie and movie things that just delighted everyone in studio, including musicals, boxing, interning, The Jokering, and even Zac Efron. Plus, the controversy of "Last Christmas" continues...
Thanksgiving is now over and the Holiday season is in full swing! So Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl run through the best of what's coming up with a winter movie preview.

So instead the guys invite on the Binder & Binder hotline their newest Friend of the Show, super podcast host author conference coordinator cool guy Terry Weaver to discuss Coming of Age films!

The Big Bracket looms in a few years maybe. But until then, Dave, Mikey and #TwitterlessDrEarl have to decide on the best roles featuring two huge actors: Ben Affleck and Matt Damon.

And of course, what better way to usher in the spooky than to invite on Friend of the Show Scaremy "Octo"Burgess to discuss favorite movie haunts. First up, birthday movies... how old is "Gravity"? Or "Halloween III: Season of the Witch"? Or even "The Wiz"?? Next, a round of America's favorite movie title game that sometimes premieres on The Deucecast, the one and only "Reel or Unreal", where players have to guess the real movie from a list of mostly fake titles.
