Episode 151 -- Merry Deuce Christmas!!!
Summary: It's Christmas time, Christmas time is here! Unfortunately, no time for a Christmas vacation... however, you can sit back for a spell and listen to your favorite movie dudes discuss their (and your) favorite Christmas films! First, we let you know what movies are celebrating their milestone birthdays this month... you won't believe how old "Dumb & Dumber" and "Beverly Hills Cop" are. And find out what legendary film franchise got it's first film released this month in 1979. We explore "Home Alone" and it's legacy, then toss around the Rotten Tomatoes in a Christmas edition. Mikey, Pinky & Dave then count down their favorite Christmas films of all time, including classics like "The Muppet Christmas Carol"... "It's a Wonderful Life"... "Scrooged"... and "White Christmas". Dave and Pinky give major love to "A Christmas Story", while Mikey gives major hate to it--he's a known Ralphie Hater, by the way. Plus, proper attention is shown to the underrated "Four Christmases", Mikey gushes about "Ernest Saves Christmas" and Pinky goes crazy for "Jingle All the Way"... and of course, Dave still loves the ABC TV movie "The Night They Saved Christmas". And find out what they chose back in 2011, during the first list of Christmas favorites as revealed in "The Deucecast Episode XXXVII: A Very Wookiee Christmas." The payoff on the horrid Christmas movies that were assigned a few episodes ago is in this episode. Hear the reviews on such holiday masterpieces as "Elf Bowling the Movie: The Great North Pole Elf Strike"... "Bratz Babies Save Christmas"... "The Nativity 2: Danger in the Manger"... and the coup de gras, "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians". Whew. Finally, everyone's favorite movie show segment, Pretty in Pink. Will the Alec Baldwin/Kevin Spacey/Al Pacino David Mamet directed epic "Glengarry Glen Ross" get top honors? Or be in the "hated it" column"? Find out tonight. Then, a great discussion on the Sony hack and the fervor over "The Interview" cancellation is broken up by... well, as Pinky will put it, some very sensitive mics and some wind. It's a first for The Deucecast Movie Show and proof that life happens anytime and anywhere. Next week! Our ReFlicktions Show for December is a bit shorter, but still we spend much time on "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies"... "The Theory of Everything"... "Exodus Gods & Kings" and several more recent flicks. And coming up soon, our Winter Movie Preview, and our Top Ten Not-2014 Films of 2014!
