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.

This week join Tuong La and First Mates Sarah Ghadbane, Angus MacDonald, and Laura Gordon as they sail the seven seas to celebrate the Top 5 Best Captains!
Wait a sec…haven’t we done this episode already?
All the way hidden in the shadowy depths of the PodCavern, there was an episode that was sealed away due to it’s over-complicated ground rules that ultimately created a list which did not represent the original spirit of the topic! This week we finally release that episode from it’s year long shackles and bring you Top 5 Fictional Worlds to live In PREDUX featuring your host Tuong La and the A-Team Leslie Cserepy, Angus MacDonald, and Samantha Leggatt!

“Yessss my master” *kneels down cowering*
Fictional villains often seem to have unlimited resources to fund their evil plans. Even though we, the audience, are taught to despise these villains, sometimes it’s hard to resist their wealth of cash, their nefarious moral compass, or their smarmy accent. It’s times like these when we wonder “What would it be like to work for this villain?”. Would they treat me well? What’s the benefits package like? Will I die horribly? These are the questions we ask on this week’s Ranked as Tuong La and Underling Candidates Taylor Fleming, Alex Toth, and Josef Addleman rank the Top 5 Best Villains to Work For!
