As August approaches and #FanBoySummer begins to wind down (only a few weeks left!), Dave, and Mikey, and #TwitterlessDrEarl are thrilled to bring on super fan of the show and budding Deucecast archivist Nate, aka Aussie Nate. Streaming in live from Brunswick, Iowa (just west of Queensland) Aussie Nate has put together a full Movie Role Tourney, one of utmost importance as the winner will advance to The Big Bracket (held in Episode 600 in September 2023). First up, catching up with Aussie Nate, and why he chose this tournament -- that being the battle of the Chrises... Evans vs Hemworth vs Pine vs Pratt, with some extras thrown in there for good measure, like Tucker, Farley, Elliot, and Kristofferson. Buckle up.. this might get Chrizy... I mean, Crazy. The Bracket: Capt Steve Rogers vs Johnny Storm Ransom vs Lloyd Hanson Jensen vs Smokey Curtis vs Jake Wyler Owen Grady vs Brett Barley Lightfoot vs Josh Faraday Emmet Brickowski vs Dan Forester Dom/Woogie vs Peter Quill Thor Odin vs George Kirk Tommy Callahan vs Billy Lee James Hunt vs Tyler Rake Beckman vs Curt James T Kirk vs Rex Hanson Cinderella's Prince vs Will Coulson Steve Trevor vs Jack Ryan Rubber Duck vs Toby Howard
The podcast takes another stop towards 500, and ultimately Episode 600 (circa Sept 2023), the losers winners of #FanboySummer continue!

Then, a quick chat about this past weekend's San Diego Comic Con, specifically the Marvel stage and all the upcoming titles and Phases. Roth from Wyoming brings the topic this time, with the best 1-2 punches from directors... the best back to back, non-franchised films from the same director across movie history.

USA!), and in this week's #FanboySummer edition, Arkansas fanboy and teacher and educator and smart cool dude Charley Wooten!

It's Week 2 of #FanboySummer, and Dave, Mikey, and #TwitterlessDrEarl seek to improve the show by bringing on people better than all of us... and when its about music, when its about movie music, when its about movies about music but aren't musicals, what better person to bring in than Mississippi's Finest, guitar player and worship leader and podcast host and Discord Datcord fellow Matt Mink, aka, The Mink Panther. The fellas talk about Matt and where he's from, where he's going, and why he loves music. The discussion leads to some of the group's fave music influences, including some old country like The Statlers, Jamie Johnson, and more Kentucky Headhunters than any podcast has talked about in recent memory. And, of course, the Forrester Sisters, because of course. Then, the return of Birthday Movies, including the absolute murderer's row of films released in June 1987, then the Top Five movies about music, but are not actually musicals... films with the beloved Anna Kendrick and films with Pixar and films with a non Danielsan Ralph Macchio but not the early Britney Spears and films with Michelle Pfieffer on a piano and films with George Clooney lip syncing and a Fountains of Wayne shout out and d$ in touch with his heritage on a golf cart in Cancun and of course, Christopher Guest.

It's the first episode of #FanBoySummer, featuring one of the show listeners not only joining the show, but picking the topic! Today, Mikey, d$ (returning from his death bed), and #TwitterlessDrEarl welcome back Friend of the Show and Mr Independent himself, Jeremy Burgess. First up, a gangsta' game of Rotten Tomatoes, honoring one we lost too soon -- Ray Liotta, and his best (and not so best) films. Then, Burgess' topic pick, figuring how we've done football and baseball centric themes, and so this time, it's all round ball.... Top Five Best Basketball movies. And it makes for an even better time when two of the four have only seen a marginal amount of hoops films, one has seen mostly documentaries, and the fourth being the only true basketball cinematic expert.

The Deucecast Team decided to spend the Holiday weekend with our families but we couldn't leave our loyal listeners without content. This is the audio version of our YouTube Show The Deucecast Extra in which we did a spoiler filled discussion of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Dave, Mikey, and TwitterlessDrEarl are joined by Deucecast staples Garrison, Roth in Wyoming, and Hurricane Rhett for a really fun conversation that goes off the rails as expected. We'll be back next week with the beginning of our Listener curated episodes. Can't wait for you all to hear who won week one.
When Mikey, d$, and #TwitterlessDrEarl only have about 20 movies between them, thereby ensuring the ReFlicktions would be fairly short. We can't have that, so let's invite in the Pride of Kennesaw and the Spawn of Scotty Ryfun, the Lil G himself Garrison Ryfun. We are here to spill the beans, no spoilers, plus discuss other hot topics like... The simplicity of early Fantastic Four... #TwitterlessDrEarlsPretentiousCorner... Liam's too old... if Anna Paquin deserved her Oscar... Lucy Deakins whereabouts... old vs new Firestarter... Zac Efron's potential and what he needs to be in... surprising Jason Biggs... a rewatch of Tom Cruise... catching up with Rick Rossovich and Whip Hubley...

In just a week or so, the Deucecast Guys enter into the Danger Zone again, at a preview for Top Gun, so that leads the discussion to TOP FIVE DOGFIGHTS in movie history. Snoop, Snoopy, The Bounty Hunger or Junkyard are not included. A task too big for just d$, Mikey, and #TwitterlessDrEarl, so who do they turn to? Of course, Hurricane Rhett, because this show has been on the rails way, way too long. First, memories of the original Top Gun... where did everyone see it? How young, and how many zippers were on those parachute pants? Then, the top five movies with aerial battles, mostly featuring planes, but some with helicopters, even some fists, and a stealth fighter named Firefox. Mikey has the Zoa on tap... Memphis Belle's true mission... the Time Vortex... Ken Olin gets a namedrop... USA Night Flight... the badness of Pearl Harbor... the goodness of Dunkirk... Mikey's weird voices... ID4 mistakes...

BATTER UP! Baseball has begun, 30 games into the season, Dave's team, Baltimore, is already out of it, Mikey doesn't care because Dallas Cowboys play the foosball and not the baseball, and #TwitterlessDrEarl is out and about, saving lives, delivering babies and politicking. So, we bring in Roth from Wyoming, co-host of Good Day for a Movie Podcast, and Deucecast Discorder Extraordinaire, to help figure out which one of these 32 incredible baseball roles head to the Big Bracket of Ep 600! First up, the return of WORD UP! to the show -- discussions on Doctor Strange, on Netflix failings, and Top Gun Maverick prospects. Plus, some other random chitter chatter before the tourney takes over. Roth, Mikey, and d$ set out to determine the best modern day baseball role in movie history, with everything from Wild Thing to a double dose of Costner to Tony Danza and Tom Selleck and Bernie Mac and a few chicks even make the final line up. Great discussion, great film memories.

Now that all the 2021 lists are over, and the ReFlicktions for last month have been ReFlickted, its time to finally move forward with new lists, new topics, and old movies to discuss! In honor of this year's NFL Draft, which just happened and to which likely 2 of the 3 Deucecasters (Dave, Mikey, Dr Earl) have no idea who was #1 (Minka Kelly, maybe?), it's time to talk a little football acting. First up, a little May the Fourth Be With You chitchat, then the return of The Rotten Tomatoes Game (and the first mention of Knute Rocke in 531 eps), then, this week's Top Five... Football Players (college and pro) who turned to acting. Some cameo roles (as in, why Brett Favre is in Miami) and Bernie Casey gets a nod and a few names Rock multiple lists and even Burt Reynolds shows up. Plus... both Robert Urich and John Metuszak might be making their debut mentions. Maybe. Unclear.
Spring has sprung, Easter has eclipsed us, May is moving in, and now that 2021 has been discarded like an empty paper plate that once had a large piece of cake but is now empty because Dave and Mikey were at that birthday party eating that cake while #TwitterlessDrEarl stood by with a diabetes monitor and... what. Time for ReFlicktions. Among the discussion... why Morbius is like an Autism breakfast... Jason Segal needs more laughs... Ben Affleck and his affairs... The one little problem with Ten Little Indians... Mikey's kids fangirling over the YouTube stars... revisiting Easter movies... Life in a Bubble... And do animals have pancreases? Pancreaseses? Pancreaii? Here are the movies discusses on this episode and where they are streaming at the time of recording.
