Mikey, P!nky and d$ jump back into The Godfather Saga by taking on what is arguably the better of the first two (and definitely better than the third... then again, d$ contends that Damon Wayan's Mo' Money is better than the third Godfather III)... and again, we are joined up by Classic Movie Historian and Terence Malick Apologist, the Honorable Doctor Earl. ...It's the Intermission Episode with the full discussion on the classic The Godfather Part II. From 1974, the film centers on dueling story lines... first, the ascent of power of Michael Corleone, and his submerging into the darkness that is the mafia in the 1950s... next, we see the early days of the future "don", that being Vito Corleone (Marlon Brando in the first film). An Academy Award winner for best picture, and starring Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro, Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton, Talia Shire, join the guys as they dissect the movie, talk about favorite scenes, the nuances and the movie as a whole... not from some snotty critics point of view, but from a FAN's point of view! Also, join on us Episode 146, when d$ and local comic book shop owner and geek extraordinaire have a full discussion on the merging of Disney & Star Wars... sorta movies, sorta magic, all geek. That's next week!
From the powerful opening notes to it's powerful closing scene, The Godfather is one of the greatest films in cinematic history, or as Mikey puts it, "It's an Italian film made for Italians" This Intermission episode takes on the Godfather saga, with Part I this week.... character by character, plot point by major plot point, Mikey, Pinky & d$ break down the film, and are joined by film buff and friend of the show Dr Earl to do so. Hear our favorite scenes, maybe find your favorite scenes, discover and rediscover things you may not have known... trivia, symbolism and making of tidbits. Vito, Clemenza, Michael, Sonny, Tom Hagen... all discussed at length, and we even talk about the deathly oranges... the horse head (real or fake?)... George Lucas' influence... who was on tap to play Vito besides Brando... the actual madness of Marlon Brando... why Pacino refused his Oscar nod... and our favorite characters and scenes. Make sure to listen to The Deucecast Ep 145, next week, as the show takes on... Godfather II in our two part Intermission.

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$, Mikey and P!nky--along with special in-studio guests Hurricane Rhett and Matty the Former Co-Host, with a special appearance by Deucecast Sweetheart Steph, pay tribute to Robin Williams by doing a full retrospective. The guys don't dive into Robin's private life, his struggles or his demons, leaving that for other shows... instead, they track his complete career from beginning to the most recent films, sometimes breezing past a few, other times, like "Good Will Hunting", "Good Morning Vietnam", "Dead Poets Society", "Aladdin" and more, taking their time and having a great discussion on those films. Join us as we have a great time celebrating the films of Robin Williams--and yes, acknowledging the fact there were some clunkers too--on this episode of The Deucecast Movie Picture Show
Beware this is a spoiler heavy episode but we warn you before we dive into all that. On this episode we review Guardians of the Galaxy as only The Deucecast can. The normal crew of Dave, Pinky, and Mike is joined by special guests Rhett and Former Co-Host Matt to discuss all aspects of the movie. Rhett of course has to find some things to complain about. We hope you enjoy the craziness that was this episode.
The gang is all here today, with a shorter episode as we continue our weekly excursion into movie discussion excellence! Mikey, P!nky and d$ 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? The Top Five of the Year jumps around a bit for everyone, though we suspect much movement with Guardians of the Galaxy now out in the theaters. We hope you enjoy our show!!
