137- Top 5 Documentary Films

Documenting our ranking of documentaries.

The old saying “life is stranger than fiction” could not be more true when it comes to many documentaries out there. The appeal of these types of films have really exploded in recent years and the technology of bringing in lost footage or remastering old footage has only gotten better, which has only improved the art form. They can also give the audience a fresh perspective on behind the scenes events of everyday life and make someone an expert on really niche topics (for like a week)! So join Tuong La and Documentary Film Buffs Katie Pagnucco (Learn Real Good), Vinny Francois (Improv College & Learn Real Good), and Howard Mitnick (Gateway Music) as they let you peak behind the curtain of their process of ranking Top 5 Documentary films!

134 – Top 5 Terrible Movies That Are Good

So bad it’s good.

Movies are a lot of things to people but the main thing it’s for is to entertain the audience. It turns out “entertainment” can come in different forms. Some movies are objectively bad but others find ways to cross that threshold of being bad and becoming something that we can’t help but love it. We know it’s not great but we can’t look away. It’s like that fast food burger you know you aren’t supposed to have but you end up ordering them every time your drunk or hangry. Our guilty pleasures if you will. So Join Tuong and Guilty Pleasures Samantha Leggatt, Tina Wallace, and Victoria Luloff as they rank Top 5 Terrible Movies That Are Good!

130 – Top 5 Movies of 2021

Wait did any movies even come out last year?

The pandemic has made the timing of movie releases weird. Movies endlessly have been getting delayed and it really seemed like nothing came out in 2021. With the Oscars coming up, y’know the most prestigious awards show nobody watches, we once again took it upon ourselves to reflect on if there was anything even worth watching or talking about for this year’s best movie podcast. The answer was YES! Even in a sea of delayed films, there was a number of great stuff that came out last year that supplied that much-needed escapism that only movies can provide, transporting our minds away from the harsh reality of real life and into a world of imagination and wonder. So join Tuong and Movie Lovers Nivala Maharaj, Jesse Anderson, and Alyssa Wooldridge as they binge all the films from last year to bring you a Top 5 Movies of 2021 list!
