“Sonic, meet Knuckles.”

This week join Tuong and Twitch streamer extraordinaire whinnaay as they talk about the joys and struggles of streaming, whinnaay’s lack of popculture knowledge, and their love of everyone’s favorite blue hedgehog in his latest hit movie sequel – Sonic the Hedgehog 2!

Legend has it you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you meet your prince, but somehow our friend Tiana got it right on the first try – and if you’re into jazz, beignets, and watching fireflies on the bayou, then you’ll agree with the Dummies that The Princess and the Frog got a lot of other things right, too! Groove along with us to the sights and sounds of Mardi Gras, New Orleans jazz, and an excellent cast of characters in this starry take on a classic tale.

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!

We’re back into the world of CG animation, and for Chicken Little, Disney went BIG! Anthropomorphic animals, alien invasions, a high-stakes baseball game…this movie has everything! But as the Dummies will tell you, at the heart of it, we’ve got a little chicken with a big heart – and some pretty cool tricks up his sleeve that he just might have to use to save the day.

Oh brother, bear art thou? Trek through the Alaskan wilderness with the Dummies as they follow former human, current bear Kenai on his quest to find “the mountain where the lights touch the earth” and transform back into his former self – while discovering, with the help of Denahi, Sitka, and Koda, what brotherhood really means. (No thanks to Phil Collins).

Featuring Antony Hall (CBC’s Ming’s Dynasty, Book It Vince!), Simon McCamus (The Second City, Fake Cops), and Brie Watson (The Second City, Improv Niagara). It’s our Christmas Special! This week the panel discusses whether Eyes Wide Shut is a Christmas movie, gets treated to a startlingly clever rundown of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s filmography, and learns about the true meaning of Jizzmas from Ebenezer Splooge.

There’s no time like the end of the year to discover a new groove! The Emperor’s New Groove is Disney animated slapstick at its best, and the Dummies are following along on a truly wacky mission to save Pacha’s home from the selfish King/llama Kuzco, and stop the evil Yzma and her right-hand himbo, Kronk, from doing MURDER (gasp!!). Groove along with us, if you dare!

“All I wanted in this world is carnage”

This week join Tuong and our favorite alien symbiote Dan Foerster as they talk about new daddy life, Bezos wasting money going to space, how cartoonishly violent Home Alone traps are, and why our movie of the week made us physically face palm in the theaters – 2021’s Venom: Let There Be Carnage.

If everything the light touches was ours, then hey, we couldn’t wait to be king, either! Explore the thrill, joy, and heartbreak of the circle of life as the Dummies sing along to Hakuna Matata with Simba, Timon, Pumbaa, and a whole pride of other familiar faces.

Listen, he steals only what he can’t afford – it’s not his fault that’s everything! Stay one jump ahead with the Dummies and our favourite street rat as we meet Princess Jasmine, recover a magic lamp, and come face to face with one of the greatest characters in cinematic history – Robin William’s incomparable Genie.
