Welcome back to Part 2 of the Summer Series -- last week, we ranked the summer movies of the 70s... this week, we jumped to the first half of the ME Decade -- 1980 to 1984! And gotta say, the harvest is massive. Ranking any movie released from Memorial Day Weekend to Labor Day weekend in each of 1980, 1981, 1982, 1983, and 1984, the film titles are legendary... Indiana Jones and Elliott and Kermit and Carol Anne and WOLVERINE and Shall We Play a Game and on and on and on... we've all got a list with a dozen or more names on it, and because the task is so daunting, what better way to tackle it than to bring on a podcasting legend and friend of the show SHAZBAZZAR!! We talk about where Shaz has been spending his time since the end of TechnoRetro Dads... avoiding Vic's Damone... playing a little IMDB Game... love of Marc Singer... the greatest fan film ever made... the 80s teens propensity to create world destroying technology... and so, so much more.

It's Mother's Day and Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl want to give a nod to their own moms and those moms out there we love. And what better way to honor those moms than to look at the movies... and see which moms to totally avoid. First, a Mother (F***) themed version of The Rotten Tomatoes Game, taking on the films of the Mother dude himself. Then, a look at the worst moms in movies, from Shirly MacLaine to Ally Sheedy to telekinesis to Goonies to even some animated bad Disney matriarchs.

We have all seen movies that have certain actors show up, and whether consciously or sub-, and we know the movie just got better... or the bad movie just got decent. Or the great movie just got great. Actors that make movies better. Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl invite in the Spawn of Ryfun, the pride of TyTy, Georgia, Lil G, Garrison Ryfun to discuss those very actors. First up, a little Word Up, finding out who thinks what about J-Lo & A-Rod... the impact of Disney+ Marvel movies... and predictions on move box offices. Then, a list of the ladies who we love to see show up in films, some character actresses, some GuGu, some Garfunkel & Oates, and which Mara is better. And Kristy McNicol.

Or the great movie just got great. Actors that make movies better. Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl invite in the Spawn of Ryfun, the pride of TyTy, Georgia, Lil G, Garrison Ryfun to discuss those very actors. First up, a new game called Just Watch, guessing the cast of random movies featured in the app. Then, a list of the guys who we love to see show up in films, some character actors, and even some "guys we'd watch in anything" names. And none are named Will Patton.

It's been ten long, crazy years and 1000s of movies, lots of video games, several third wheel co-hosts and 475 episodes, it's The Deucecast Movie Show's 10th Anniversary! Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl ring in the next decade with an episode that looks at the best films of 2011! First, Birthday Movies return, with the films released 5, 10, 15, 20 and more years ago in April of those years - Along Came a Spider, Primal Fear, Out for Justice and Bad News Bears is how old?

The Deucecast Movie Show crew has returned after a week off, and they are ready to rumble when it comes to movies. First up, Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl take a look at the recent Oscar nominations and give their thoughts -- surprises, expectations, snubs, and a few predictions. Next, a longer discussion on the recent release of the four hour Zack Snyder's Justice League, how it's better, some of the differences, and thoughts on the Josstice League by comparison. Then, an episode long round of See This Not That, looking at 15 members of the Zack Snyder's Justice League cast and picking for each a movie to "See This" and then a movie to "Not That", from JK Simmons to Robin Wright to Diane Lane to Jason Mamoa (and even a little Jason MaNO-AH). And of course, Dave's girlfriend, Amy Adams. Sprinkled amongst the listings are this year's Deucie Award nominations - Popcorn Movie, Animated Feature, Drama, Comedy, Acting nods, Director, Picture and all of those. The 8th annual Deucie Awards commence in just a few weeks. Finally, the movies for watching, assigned to #TwitterlessButNotDiscordlessDrEarl, for this year's SpirituEarl... films with a religious or Christian bend to the them, movies he will watch and report back on in a few weeks.
It's a busy spring break week for everyone as Mikey is busy eating and #TwitterlessDrEarl is in Long Island testifying at a lint removal procedure gone wrong trial and Dave is out of the state, so rather than trying to get a rushed show together, they guys are taking the week off. This week, the show pays homage to our good friends over at TechnoRetro Dads, who's own show is ending. This Deucecast Classic is from May 2018, episode 327. Enjoy the old school vibe, and here are the original show notes from that episode: It's a couple of guys who keep their heads in the clouds and gaze at the stars, so it's only fitting that Dave and Mikey discuss Fantasy and Science Fiction films. But since #Twitterless Dr Earl can't be found (he's doing a lint removal procedure from the naval of poor kids in Long Island), who better to invite onto the show than the TechnoRetro Dads themselves, Shazbazzar and Jedi Shuuuuuuuuaaaaahhhhhh.... And the gang jumps right in, counting off their lists of what they consider to be their favorite fantasy/sci-fi films of this century... that's really anything released on January 1st, 2000, until... well, you know, today. Or the day of the recording, anyway. The TRD's also give their take on "Ready Player One" before diving into the Top Ten, then the guys discuss at length -- and at depth -- the legacy and their adoration of films like "Children of Men" and the newest "Star Trek" and newer "Star Wars" films and Shaz defends "John Carter" while Dave defends "Lady in the Water". Its a great two hours of sci fi fantasy fun and movie love!
In the latest The Deucecast Movie Show, the guys take a look at American classics. It's a broad definition, but Dave, Mikey, and #TwitterlessDrEarl apply their movie mastery to make it happen. Along the way, they reel in co-host of A Good Day for a Movie Podcast Roth from Wyoming, to talk a little about his favorite films and his podcast, and then a rousing round of Denzel! Finally, a top five list of American Classics... movies made in our country, with a solid American cast, movies that define a little America in every scene. Movies discussed and where they are streaming: 12 Angry Men (1951) - YouTube 12 Angry Men (1997) - YouTube American Graffiti - HBO Max Blade Runner: Final Cut - HBO Max Braveheart - Starz Casablanca - HBO Max Double Indemnity - for rental Fantasia - Disney+ The Godfather - Paramount+ The Graduate - HBO Max In the Heat of the Night - IndieFlix It's a Wonderful Life - Amazon Prime Jaws - HBO Max Mr. Smith Goes to Washington - for rental Rocky - HBO Max The Shawshank Redemption - DirecTV; Bravo Singing in the Rain - HBO Max Star Wars - Disney+ Superman - HBO Max To Kill a Mockingbird - for rental True Grit - HBO Max
In a rare move for The Deucecast Movie Show, the topic describes the show itself -- a total disaster. But this time, it's natural disasters, born by God and Mother Nature. First up, Dave and Mikey give their review on the new Disney film "Raya & the Last Dragon"... while the award winning #TwitterlessDrEarl nods approvingly. Then, a little round of the Rotten Tomatoes Game. Finally, the Top Five list of fave Natural Disaster movies -- not man made, not alien created, but just weather conditions and space gone mad. Everything from animal crackers on Liv Tyler's stomach to overturned ships to Deus ex Rockina, its all the disasters you could need. Where you can find the movies discussed: ...and the Band Played On (HBO Max) Armageddon (rental) Children of Men (rental) Crawl (Amazon Prime; Hulu) Dante's Peak (rental) Earthquake (rental) Hard Rain (Amazon Prime) Melancholia (Amazon Prime; Hulu) Perfect Storm (rental) The Poseidon Adventure (rental) San Andreas (rental) Sunshine (rental) Take Shelter (rental) Twister (rental) Volcano (Starz)
