“O greatest of Kings, let one of your knights try to land a blow against me. Indulge me in this game.”

This week join Tuong and medieval, fantasy, poetry fan Gisela Peters as they find out that playing a game with a big, mysterious, and spooky Groot-looking dude with a giant ax is not as cracked up to be in 2021’s The Green Knight.

“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!

Everyone’s favorite TV show about shitty superheroes and hilarious over the top violence is back for a season 2 on Prime Video. That’s right! This week on Talkin’ Tuong, we have special guest Angus MacDonald…

PodCavern’s Spookening Begins!

We are doing a whole month of spooky-themed movies for this month’s episodes of Talkin’ Tuong! So join Tuong La and Half Ghost-Half Werewolf Kyle Jones, as we watch Martin Freeman take on Zombies (and an Australian accent) in 2017’s Cargo (now streaming on Netflix!).

And the Oscars go to…

First off HAPPY THIRD BIRTHDAY to the PodCavern! **thunderous applause** It’s been a helluva ride and there are no plans on slowing down this Top 5 train!

Now let’s get down to why we are all gathered here today. Movies. Oscar season is quickly approaching and every year on Ranked’s birthday we do intensive research (aka binge) to discover the best movies of yesteryear. 2019 started off seeming like quite possibly one of the weakest years in movies in a long time, but in the last few months of the decade it managed to put out some truly remarkable films that managed to flip that entire narrative. So join Tuong La and Hollywood Big Wigs Nivala Maharaj, Doug MacKendrick, and Melanie Moshi as they vigorously regale and argue over the best movies of 2019!

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!

Talkin’ Tuong returns in full force to talk about a jam packed month we had in July! On this episode, with the help of Taylor Fleming, we discuss our favorite web-slinger in his newest movie Spider-Man: Far From Home, discover if the new live-action Lion King remake means Hakuna Matata, and dig into all the big news from San Diego Comic-Con 2019!

On this episode of The Improv Punch Up we have the Astounding Al Connors in the PodCavern! Listen as Al and the boys figure out what the fall of the Berlin Wall would be like with more genies, a man’s whole life is a customer service nightmare, and the Avengers become a little more international!

Ranking Super Powers is our Endgame.

Today we are celebrating 11 years of the MCU and superhero pop culture by giving our take on an aged old question: “What are the best super powers?”. Face it, even the most jaded comic book sneerer wishes they can get up and fly out of bed, transform into a fire breathing lizard, or shoot lasers out of their eyes! This week join Tuong La and New Mutants Justin Godelie, Dan Foerster, and Angus MacDonald as they put on the Infinity Gauntlet and materialize their take on the Top 5 best super powers!

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!
