“I don’t condone this sexy yet reckless behavior, Susan Cooper!”

Paul Feig has brought some of the most iconic properties in the last few decades into the world from Freaks and Geeks to The Heat to even Bridesmaids. This week, we watch a Paul Feig film that isn’t talked about enough that is full of a non-stop barrage of jokes and laughs. So join Tuong and Super Spy Krystal Merrells as they talk about improv and the comedic brilliance of Melissa McCarthy in 2015’s Spy!

“Well, Hello Clarice”

Thanks to the bone-chilling performance of Anthony Hopkins, The Silence of the Lambs has become a franchise that has no shortage of sequels and spin offs that is continuing to be milked for all it’s worth. But what’s the big deal anyway? Join Tuong La and intrepid FBI detective in training, Kelley Oliver, as they watch this classic psychological thriller horror for the first time and crack the case on why 1991’s The Silence of the Lambs is one of the most revered movies of all time.

“There Are Six, Not Five. There Is No Us Without Him.”

The Snydercut is one of the weirdest things to happen in film in a long time. The Justice League came out in 2017 which was finished by another director and had a sub-par reception to it upon it’s release. Since then, the internet and even cast members were demanding the big studios to help realize Zack Snyder’s original vision of this movie with #ReleasetheSnyderCut. With enough persistence and whining, the internet finally got it’s way and the people actually got a new cut of this movie. So join Tuong, Matt Barrow, and Angus Macdonald as they watch over four hours of brooding and a lot of ideas crammed into one thing as they talk about Zack Snyder’s Justice League!

“Welcome to Good Burger, home of the Good Burger! Can I take your order?”

Hey look, moves in the 90’s were weird. But they were also wonderful because sometimes an idea is so bananas that it wouldn’t work in today’s world of cinema. That’s why on this week’s episode, Tuong and Alli “Mondo Burger” Harris take a look at this very special moment in movie history and watch the classic Nickelodean film about fast food rivalry and “being a dude” – Good Burger!

“It’s a-me!”

We are not quite done celebrating Mario’s 35th birthday in the PodCavern! Like many games that came to the Wii U, this particular one was revered by many but played by so few…until now! So join us this week as Tuong La and Doug MacKendrick talk about the newest (sort of) cat-filled adventure of Mario re-released on the Nintendo Switch – Super Mario 3D World and the brand new free expansion Bowser’s Fury!

“It may feel impossible, but sometimes, you just have to take the first step”

Over the last couple of films, Disney Princesses have started to move away from the formula of being the damsel in distress and having to have big sweeping romantic love stories. With Disney’s latest film, we (finally) get another capable female warrior princess set in a beautiful South-Eastern inspired backdrop with gorgeous action scenes and dragons! So is it any good? This week join Tuong La and Real Life Dragon Kalvin Nhan (Trà Time) as they discuss Disney’s latest animated adventure – Raya and The Last Dragon!

“There are three types of people: Those at the top, those at the bottom, and those who fall.”

There have been many films that have tried to provide social commentary on status and class in such a way that it’s almost become it’s own sub-genre of movies. And while Parasite has popularized this sub genre in such a way that it set up a very a high bar for movies to follow, there is still room for these types of movies to say something new to add to the conversation. This week join Tuong La and The Insatiable Jesse Bergen as they brace their appetites talking about the Spanish Thriller film about a vertical platform, hunger, and the most ill-conceived prison system – Netflix’s The Platform!

“I’m the dying guy!”
“I’m the other guy!”

The Duplass Brothers have made their name in producing/directing some of the most interesting indie films over the years, and the movie of this week is no different! This week join Tuong La and Master of the Death Punch (Kristy Matheson) as they discuss a movie about an unlikely friendship, a made up sport, and a whole lot of emotions wrapped up in an hour and a half talking about 2019’s Paddleton!

“Why do I want to attend Harvard? If I was white, would you even have to ask me that question?”

Geeky kids. A party gone wrong. Geeky kids are forced into a life or death situation involving drugs. These are all beats from thousands of other movies that we’ve seen before. So is it possible to have a unique perspective with these well worn tropes? Short answer: YES! This week join Tuong and special guest Stenley Philippe as they discuss Rick Famuyiwa’s Comedy/Drama drug-filled adventure – Dope (2015)!
