As the Summer movie season comes to a close Dave, Mikey, and TwitterlessDrEarl discuss their favorites and not so favorites of the summer.
Still Beautiful. Still Gorgeous. Still Malick. As Labor Day passes, so goes, for all intents and purposes, the #FanBoySummer which comes to a close with one final guest, one final top five as provided by those in the Discord. Mikey, d$, and #TwitterlessDrEarl welcome back The Pride of Tifton Georgia, the Spawn of Ryfun, Lil G, Garrison to the show, and he brings to the table an extended alternate topic... that being Extended Editions and Directors Cuts of our Fave Films. Several opinions come up on the Justice League and Zack Snyder's famed edition... the slapstick of Superman and the alternate cut... Mikey cheating... Garrison channeling Sergio Leone... watching films in TV series form... Terrence Malick stuff... Mikey's Star Trek convention discoveries... watching The Tuxedo... Peter Jackson's directors edition of the Lord of the Rings... aliens of the Abyss... and a movie that lasts over five hours... Plus, d$ plays off DaveSplosion 2022!

For the first time in over two years, the Deucecast crew -- Mikey, d$, and #TwitterlessDrEarl takes on a Herculean task... listing the movies coming in the fall and winter of the year. The Spring/Summer preview (ep 526) got most of the movies right, but when it comes to fall and winter, leading into award season, it's a total crapshoot. But we are up for the challenge. We list most of the major releases into theaters and streaming, with the knowledge that any of them can move without warning. Two Pinocchio films, new Kevin Smith, is Fletch even relevant anymore, Sidney Pointier gets his due, Zac Efron on a Beer Run, Olivia Wilde v Flo Pugh, Tyler Perry's Jazzman, d$ geeks out over new Russell AND new Baumbach, Mikey says "Dominatrix", #TwitterlessDrEarl loving some Tar, Anne Hathaway heads to another Oscar, She Said journalism, Amy Adams Amy Adams Amy Adams, Tom Hanks bad accents, Whitney biopic, Sarah Polley's critical love... And dozens and dozens and dozens more.
Only two weeks left in our newly iconic #FanBoySummer, and we chose to handpick our final two losers winners, we mean, and one guest we wanted to bring back is a beloved past and future guest. But since Paige Davis was not available, we invited on our lovely pal Jenny Kaufman! First, catching up with Kaufman after her refusing to come on the show since last Christmas, the Birthday movies kick in for August of previous years. Then, Kaufman leads the game!

Mikey's kids makes everyone feel terribly old with "the late 1900s"... explaining filesharing to the kids... Limewire... life in a non-streaming world...

Then tackling the broad spectrum of "Science Movies" (which is different than "Sci-Fi Movies"), the guys give their picks of their favorite movies about Science, Technology, Mathematics and more. We'll discuss the career of Andrew Niccol... dunking on Math teachers... Harland Williams whereabouts... Apollo films...

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.
