Ep 84 – Black Widow (2021) with Patricia Eddu

“I’m done running from my past.”

It’s been over 2 years since we have got a proper movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (since Spider-Man: Far From Home came out in June of 2019 to be exact). While the Disney+ Marvel shows have been doing a great job in their own rights expanding the universe, there was a lot of appetite to see a feature length movie in the MCU. After multiple multiple delays from the pandemic, the time has come finally to the nerds to rejoice! Was it worth the wait? Join Tuong and the Strongest Avenger Patricia Eddu as they talk about long anticipated Black Widow!

Ep 83 – Midsommar (2019) with Spencer Dunn

“Well we think of life like the seasons.”

When people think of horror movies they often think about jump scares, lots of blood, gore, spooky creatures, ghosts, or…*shudder* children. But some horror movies opt for a different approach where it’s horror of the mind, slowly peeling away at your psyche as you watch it, such as on this week’s episode of Talkin’ Tuong. So join Tuong and Castle Rockettes’s Spencer Dunn as they take a look at the bright and disturbing Swedish folk horror/cultish nightmare that is 2019’s Midsommar.

Ep 62 – Dope (2015) with Stenley Philippe

“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)!

100 – Ranked’s 100th Episode Spectacular

Celebrating 100 episodes of Ranked!
Almost 4 years ago there was an idea. An idea of Tuong uniting three other guests to bicker, banter, and passionately put together arbitrary Top 5 lists of anything and everything. Over the last few years we have ranked everything from Sandwich Toppings, to TV Theme Songs, to a variety of Fictional Animals. But for the 100th episode, we knew we had to go above and beyond to make a list that TRULY does not matter that also honours the legacy of all Ranked episodes (so far).

So join us as Tuong La and the A-Team Angus MacDonald, Samantha Leggatt, and Leslie Cserepy look back on all of the winners of each Top 5 list we have ever done, pit them together in a battle royale of which #1 was the best, and record a marathon episode where we rank and order ONE HUNDRED EPISODES in Ranked’s 100th Episode Spectacular!
