“I don’t ever say a final goodbye. I always just say, I’ll see you down the road and I do”.

Last year was a weird year for movies. Not a lot came out but also not a lot of people were in the mood to watch any of the movies that were contenders for the typical movie award season this year. Well we are in the mood today! So join Tuong and the Dungeon Master of our hearts Josef Addleman as they talk about wide vista shots of desserts, close-ups of Frances Mcdormand’s face, and the Oscar’s Best Picture – 2020’s Nomadland!

“Families can be hard but they are so worth fighting for.”

Stop us if you heard this before: A movie about an unlikely group of people saving the world from killer robots. You’d think with the amount of times this type of movie has been done before that there would be no way to tell us this movie in a fresh exciting way. Well we were wrong! This week on Talkin’ Tuong join Tuong and Overlord Robot A.I. Meghan Murphy as they talk about the latest movie from the minds behind Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse and The Lego Movie – The Mitchells vs. The Machines!

“Get over here!”

A good movie adaptation of a video game is really hard to come by since…well ever. From stinkers like 1993’s Super Mario Bros. to Resident Evil to even the new Monster Hunter movie, Hollywood struggles to capture what makes these games so special in the first place. So join Tuong La and Earth Realm’s Champion Katie Pagnucco (Improv College) as they discuss if the new Mortal Kombat movie is a “Flawless Victory” or gets put in the ever growing pantheon of bad video game movies.

“On your left…”

Hey look we all love Captain America in the P0dCavern (at least Tuong really does) so was it a surprise that we’d be talking about this show? So join Tuong and Evil Captain America Taylor Fleming as they do a series review of Disney’s second MCU show – The Falcon and the Winter Soldier!

“Don’t Settle. You Don’t Have To. Even At The End Of The World.”

Generally post-apocalyptic movies can all start to feel the same and are usually kind of a big bummer (we imagine that’s partly because it’s about the end of the world and all that…). Luckily, this week’s movie somehow creates a fresh spin to the genre with plenty of laughs, action, heart, and charm! So join Tuong and producer, DJ, vocalist, and Giant Crab Monster Adam Jasim as they journey across the land to kick ass in the name of romance while talking about 2020’s Love and Monsters!

“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!
