The (slightly) relaunched Talkin’ Tuong is here and we are kicking things off with PodCavern fan favorite…Samantha Leggatt! The whole idea of this new-ish format is to find ways to connect with friends (old and new) in these darker times by talking about something more fun, like the types of art we are consuming more of these days. For the foreseeable future, we will be doing 1 on 1 interview shows with new guests every Monday to discuss the latest pop culture news as well as talk about one movie/tv or show/game/etc. that we both agreed to watch pre-recording. So sit back and enjoy our newest episode about Pixar’s latest movie…Onward!
CAW CAW Mother cluckers! We talking’ about birds this week!
Look we’ve done Fictional Dogs. We’ve done Fictional Cats. It was only a matter of time until we tackle the all important topic of Fictional Birds! So join Tuong La and Bodacious Bird Watchers Axandre Lemours, Victoria Lulloff, and Joey Walsh as they soar over and hoot out a Top 5 Fictional Birds list!
10 years of movies, that can’t be THAT hard to Rank right?…right?
The 2010 decade is coming to an end and, looking back, the movie landscape has shifted and changed drastically in the last 10 years. The Twenty-Tens gave rise to streaming, obligatory sequels, reboots, and shared universes; while many smaller indie films struggled to break through the box office. The amount of content we face these days is endless so coming with a list of our favorites was a tough one (especially since it’s been such a great decade for movies). So join us as Tuong La and Sassy Cinephiles Taylor Fleming, Stephanie Ridgeway, and Sean Mulhern pull out all their movie knowledge and rank down the behemoth of a list that is Top 5 Movies of the 2010 Decade!
This month on Talkin’ Tuong, we take the PodCavern all the way to the West Coast (Vancouver, BC) to visit a regular recurring podcast guest who has only ever skyped in…till now! Listen as Tuong and Taylor Fleming discuss some big pop culture news from November and get chattin’ about Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit, Bong Joon Ho’s Parasite, and a certain Disney Plus show that has something to do with Stars and Wars? Listen and find out!
*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.
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 for a new LIVE episode!
Wait a sec.. Green book? That can’t be right..
[Warning: This episode contains some minor spoilers]
The Academy has had one of it’s most controversial years yet. Just when you think they finally “get it” they manage to take one step forward and two steps back. From everything surrounding the hosting, to subtracting and re-adding categories to the main program, to the Best Movie they chose, it’s clear that this whole awards show is kind of a hot mess. However, it’s not all cloudy skies! While this year may not have had the strongest line up of movies, it still gave us some real humdingers which we are here today to share with you! Join Tuong La and True Oscar Winners Desiree Connors Warmington, Taylor Fleming, and Leslie Cserepy as they celebrate PodCavern & Ranked’s second birthday, and rank the Top 5 Movies of 2018!
This month on Talkin’ Tuong, Tuong teams up once again with Laura Gordon to talk about three huge movies that came out in November including Ralph Breaks the Internet, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, and Creed II! As always this show is a Monthly Facebook Live Stream event so be sure to like the PodCavern Page to join the conversation next time!
Don’t make it weird.
Growing up in front of a television, it was hard not to admire some of the animated characters we saw on our favorite shows/movies. Something in the way these character talked, or the way they acted, or – yup – even the way they looked made us melt in a way that ‘Tommy’ or ‘Sally’ from school never would. This week Tuong La and Cartoon Crushers Angus MacDonald, Samantha Leggatt, and Meghan Murphy rank their favorite Cartoon Crushes that sparked their err..”awakening”.
Welcome to episode 2 of Talkin’ Tuong, the Live Show where your host Tuong La talks about 3 of his favorite pop culture topics in the last month with the fine folks on Facebook ! This month, Tuong gives some thought to E3 2018, gushes about Incredibles 2, and gives a live demo of Mario Tennis Aces!
