We watch a lot of movies, new and old. We have fun talking about what we like (and don't like) about them. We're part of the RetroZap podcast network.
The Baseball Movie Role Tourney
BATTER UP! Baseball has begun, 30 games into the season, Dave's team, Baltimore, is already out of it, Mikey doesn't care because Dallas Cowboys play the foosball and not the baseball, and #TwitterlessDrEarl is out and about, saving lives, delivering babies and politicking.
So, we bring in Roth from Wyoming, co-host of Good Day for a Movie Podcast, and Deucecast Discorder Extraordinaire, to help figure out which one of these 32 incredible baseball roles head to the Big Bracket of Ep 600!
First up, the return of WORD UP! to the show -- discussions on Doctor Strange, on Netflix failings, and Top Gun Maverick prospects. Plus, some other random chitter chatter before the tourney takes over.
Roth, Mikey, and d$ set out to determine the best modern day baseball role in movie history, with everything from Wild Thing to a double dose of Costner to Tony Danza and Tom Selleck and Bernie Mac and a few chicks even make the final line up. Great discussion, great film memories.

Actors Who Did the Footballs
Now that all the 2021 lists are over, and the ReFlicktions for last month have been ReFlickted, its time to finally move forward with new lists, new topics, and old movies to discuss!
In honor of this year's NFL Draft, which just happened and to which likely 2 of the 3 Deucecasters (Dave, Mikey, Dr Earl) have no idea who was #1 (Minka Kelly, maybe?), it's time to talk a little football acting.
First up, a little May the Fourth Be With You chitchat, then the return of The Rotten Tomatoes Game (and the first mention of Knute Rocke in 531 eps), then, this week's Top Five... Football Players (college and pro) who turned to acting. Some cameo roles (as in, why Brett Favre is in Miami) and Bernie Casey gets a nod and a few names Rock multiple lists and even Burt Reynolds shows up.
Plus... both Robert Urich and John Metuszak might be making their debut mentions. Maybe. Unclear.
The Unbearable Deucecast of Massive ReFlicktions
Spring has sprung, Easter has eclipsed us, May is moving in, and now that 2021 has been discarded like an empty paper plate that once had a large piece of cake but is now empty because Dave and Mikey were at that birthday party eating that cake while #TwitterlessDrEarl stood by with a diabetes monitor and... what.
Time for ReFlicktions.
Among the discussion... why Morbius is like an Autism breakfast... Jason Segal needs more laughs... Ben Affleck and his affairs... The one little problem with Ten Little Indians... Mikey's kids fangirling over the YouTube stars... revisiting Easter movies... Life in a Bubble...
And do animals have pancreases? Pancreaseses? Pancreaii?

The 2022 Deucies and Top 10 of 2021
It's a tradition unlike any other... no, not the Masters, nor the Kentucky Derby, nor the BAFTAs... nope, it's the Deucie Awards!
For the 9th consecutive year, including 8 years in a row and this one, the Deucecast Movie Show hosts compile a list of nominees to watch, consider, vote on, and finally award the proverbial Golden Deuce Academy Globe VIBE statue to any one - or many - of over 40 films nominated for 16 awards...
Will Jess Chastain take home the Deucie to match her Oscar? Will Jason Isaacs get finally get some love after his tour de force on MASS? Can Hans Zimmer take another step closer to a DEGOT? And will international films find themselves in the spotlight this year.
Along the way, Dave, Mikey, and #Twitterless Dr Earl count down their own individual lists of their favorite 10 from the previous year gone by... including films that only get on one list, like that Jesus music doc Dave loves... and movies that are on 67% of the lists, like Wes Anderson's latest quirkity cinema... or movies that are on various spots of all three lists, like PTA's newest masterpiece or maybe a web slingin' modern classic...
And shockingly, this ep comes in well under 2 hours.
Enjoy the show as we put a button on 2021!
Yippe Ki Yay Bruce Willis
Here at the Deucecast, we always remember our favorite actors and actresses, and when they step away, we give them props.
So when the family of Bruce Willis announced that Bruno himself would be retiring due to health issues, the Deucecast wanted to give our proper nod.
Hence, our Bruce Willis themed episode! Mikey and Dave are joined by Lil G Ryfun from Valdosta, GA, as the trio counts down their own favorite Bruce films. Plus, lots of great discussions on the career and overall body of work.
Stick around for the extended stinger, as the show gets a drop-in by a former and future guest of the show, who only stops by to kick himself off of the show later.
The Batman Batdance
As seen and heard on the Deucecast Extra a batastic conversation of The Batman
Great movie conversation!!!!
Great guys, great show
This podcast is tons of fun for anybody who has ever enjoyed a movie. The hosts are knowledgeable, the guests are always awesome, and you'll come away either having learned about a movie you have seen or with a list of new things to watch. Highly recommended.
One to listen to!
This is a great podcast with friends talking about movies! I love to see if their views are the same as mine, or different. It feels like you’re at the table, and at times I find myself “joining in the conversation” out loud even though they can’t hear me. Lol! I encourage you to give it a listen!
