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... And the Bruce Willis film that broke Mikey.

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...

Once a year, the Halloween season ends and the Christmas season revs up, leaving that cold, boring month of November right in the middle. The Deucecast Movie Show refuses to let November go, so Mikey, d$, and #TwitterlessDrEarl takes a look at the month from last year back to 2000. First, the November birthday movies, finding out how long ago Doctor Strange and Domestic Disturbance were released, and exactly how long ago did Time Bandits show up? Then the guys look ahead in November, with releases coming, releases like the new claymation Robin Robin... Clifford the Big Red Dog... King Richard... and of course, Ghostbusters Afterlife Then, a look at our favorite movies released to theaters in November -- Honest Abe and Dave's girl Amy and Pixar classics and Disney animated classics and much more!

The Deucecast Crew, including Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl love movies and the actresses in them, and felt it was high time to pay tribute to those who have since departed this mortal coil... especially since we gave the love to the Actors a few weeks ago (Ep 496), its time to do the same for the fairer gender. Joining the show is the Spawn of Scotty Ryfun, the pride of Kennesaw, Lil G Garrison, as #TwitterlessDrEarl and Mikey give thoughts on The Last Duel, while Lil G and Dave look at Halloween Kills. A round of Rotten Tomatoes ensues, featuring the film of one up and coming actor that you may not even know the name of -- but we know you've seen him. Then, proper nods to the dead and buried, included legendary names like Hepburn and Gilda and Cloris and Ingrid and more. Finally, a late addition of Birthday Movies for October!
