*Cue opening title crawl*

Movie themes have become an integral part of the movie experience, even though they sometimes can be overshadowed by the film it’s representing.  When done right, the theme can be as iconic as the film itself turning a good movie into one that is remembered for all time. This week join Tuong La and the A-Team Samantha Leggatt, Angus MacDonald, and Leslie Cserepy as they try not to scream at each other while coming up with the best Top 5 Movie Theme Songs.

Ground Rules

  • Talking about the core musical theme of the movie not any song from the soundtrack

  • The whole soundtrack does not count

  • If you can argue a particular song in the movie is the theme, than it could count if you can deliberate why you think it is

  • Tie breaker can be how well the theme fits into the movie vs how well it stands on its own

  • Quality of the movie is not a factor

Merry Chris-list to All!

Inspired by last year’s Top 5 Ryans episode, the gang at Ranked decided to finally tackle the hottest question the universe has been asking: “Who is the Best Chris?”.

This week join Tuong La and Chris-tal Clear Rankers Kristine Shadid, Victoria Luloff, and Marc Quintaneiro as they go off the rails and rank a not-so-typical Top 5 Chrises List!

Oh the good ol’ Ranking Game!

Sorry, it’s that time of the year again where the folks at Ranked break out their toques and sip their Timmies on their chesterfields as they discuss some more great things about Canada! Canada is the land of many things. It’s the land of overly polite people, beautiful scenery, but also the land some of the best god damn music on the planet! This year join Tuong La and Moose Riding Mounties Keish Saunders, Shannon Godelie, and Laura Gordon as they talk aboot and celebrate the Top 5 Songs from Canadian Artists!

Ground Rules

  • Songs are from Canadian Artists (duh!)
  • How “Canadian” a song is can factor in as a tie breaker, but we are ranking them purely on enjoyment for the most part (episode is not MOST Canadian song)
  • Doesn’t matter when the song came out
  • Can nominate from different genres
  • size of the hit can also be a factor (ie winning awards) but it’s up to the table if they enjoy it
  • Try to get a variety of songs from different genres

Playlist

We compiled a nifty playlist of all the songs that we nominated and in our honourable mentions for your listening pleasure! Check it out and enjoy!

SAD NEWS.

In a PodCavern first, there will be no live-stream episode of Talkin’ Tuong this month. Don’t worry we’ll all be okay, there there. *group hug* BUT FEAR NOT! Tuong still felt compelled to record an offline episode as the show must go on! Listen as he gives a quick and dirty round up of June of what he would have talked about including life stuff, E3 2019, Dark Phoenix, MIB: International,  and Toy Story 4! We’ll be back next month with a new LIVE episode!

On this episode we have not one guest but TWO! Improvising with us is the Wondrous Woody McCadden (Blackbox Comedy) and, in a Punch Up first, all clips were curated by the Learned Lee Demarbre (Mayfair Theatre). Join us as a lowly servant on a Bulgarian party yacht stands up for himself with Pinocchio-like consequences, we find out how the Bulgarian police academy dean’s office gets it’s lovely furniture, and after 40 years of service, the world’s most professional Bulgarian flight attendant has a crisis of faith.
