Ep 86 – Space Jam: A New Legacy with Alli Harris

7/26/2021
“Are you a Tune or a Goon?” Back in 1996, there was a movie that shook the foundation of the world (Tuong's world at least) combining the zany Looney Tunes playing a high stakes game of basketball alongside Michael Jordan against a group of talent stealing alien MonStars! Fast forward 25 years and we finally get a sequel . Was it worth the wait? Did this even need to happen?

Ep 85 – Loki (2021) with Taylor Fleming

7/18/2021
"Glorious Purpose". Ever since Thor (2011) Tom Hiddleston has won the Marvel audience with his now iconic portrayal of Loki. After the rise of popularity of the character, Loki came back over and over in several movies and now a TV show! So join us as Tuong and Taylor Fleming tackle the third Marvel TV show and talk all about the God of Mischief, Time Cops, and the the Multiverse in 2021's Loki series!

Ep 84 – Black Widow (2021) with Patricia Eddu

7/11/2021
"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...

Ep 83 – Midsommar (2019) with Spencer Dunn

7/4/2021
"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...

Ep 82 – Porco Rosso (1992) with Jacob Barrick

6/27/2021
"A pig that doesn't fly is just a pig." Coming off last week's episode (Luca) set in an Italian inspired world with sea creatures, this week we go back to the legendary catalog of Studio Ghibli films exploring Italy once more but under the lens of sky pirates, planes, and a pilot pig! So join Tuong and special guest Jacob Barrick as they take to the skies to discuss yet another Hayao Miyazaki classic with 1992's Porco Rosso!

Ep 81 – Luca (2021) with Cassie Pyatt

6/20/2021
"Silenzio, Bruno!" It's hard to remember a time when Pixar was not at the forefront of animated movies. From Toy Story to Up to Inside Out (and much more) they have always somehow managed to push the boundary of story and animation while being incredibly accessible for the whole family. So join Tuong and Sea Creature/Love Is Pod's Cassie Pyatt as they dive deep into the latest Pixar original and talk about the colourful Itlalian inspired world of 2021's Luca!

Ep 80 – In the Heights (2021) with Laura Gordon

6/13/2021
"The streets were made of music". Even if you aren't a Broadway nerd, you probably have at least heard of the hit musical "Hamilton" by now. But long before Hamilton became the musical juggernaut that it is, a young Lin Manuel Miranda made his first masterpiece back in 2008 that also so happened to win Best Musical. Blending a myriad of different styles of music from hip hop to Latin influenced to soul (etc.) while also telling a moving story about community and family made adapting this...

Ep 79 – Bo Burnham: Inside (2021) with Justin Otto

6/6/2021
"There it is. That funny feeling." From viral YouTube star to award winning film director, singer songwriter, comedian, etc. Bo Burnham is one of the most uniquely talented individuals in entertainment today. Juggling the fine line between comedy and music, he somehow finds a way to make you laugh, cry, and contemplate the f*cked up world we live in today while also making you bob your head to some of the catchiest original tunes. So join Tuong and Love is...'s Justin Otto as they talk and...

Ep 78 – Army of the Dead (2021) with Michael Mongiardi

5/30/2021
"It's A Goddamn Zombie Tiger. That's Crossing The Line." George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead (1978) is one of the most beloved and seminal zombie movies in cinema. When Zack Snyder remade it in 2004 it had a high bar to clear which it somehow successfully did, modernizing what a zombie film could be. Well after 15 years, Zack Snyder is taking another crack at the undead with a spiritual successor to these beloved films. So join Tuong and The Sonar Network's Michael Mongiardi as they try to...

Ep 77 – Paddington 1 & 2 with Sarah MacDonald

5/23/2021
"If we're kind and polite everything will be right." Children's stories don't always translate well to the big screen and when they do, sometimes it's painfully clear they are made 'just for kids'. It takes a special type of movie magic to make a film that is good for the entire family, and there is no better example than the movies we have for today's episode of Talkin' Tuong! This week join Tuong and Mother of Marmalade Sarah MacDonald as they do a double feature of the most lovable bear...

Ep 76 – Nomadland (2020) with Josef Addleman

5/16/2021
"I don't ever say a final goodbye. I always just say, I'll see you down the road and I do". Last year was a weird year for movies. Not a lot came out but also not a lot of people were in the mood to watch any of the movies that were contenders for the typical movie award season this year. Well we are in the mood today! So join Tuong and the Dungeon Master of our hearts Josef Addleman as they talk about wide vista shots of desserts, close-ups of Frances Mcdormand's face, and the Oscar's Best...

Ep 75 – The Mitchells vs. The Machines (2021) with Meghan Murphy

5/9/2021
“Families can be hard but they are so worth fighting for.” Stop us if you heard this before: A movie about an unlikely group of people saving the world from killer robots. You'd think with the amount of times this type of movie has been done before that there would be no way to tell us this movie in a fresh exciting way. Well we were wrong! This week on Talkin' Tuong join Tuong and Overlord Robot A.I. Meghan Murphy as they talk about the latest movie from the minds behind Spider-Man: Into...

Ep 74 – Mortal Kombat (2021) with Katie Pagnucco

5/2/2021
"Get over here!" A good movie adaptation of a video game is really hard to come by since...well ever. From stinkers like 1993's Super Mario Bros. to Resident Evil to even the new Monster Hunter movie, Hollywood struggles to capture what makes these games so special in the first place. So join Tuong La and Earth Realm's Champion Katie Pagnucco (Improv College) as they discuss if the new Mortal Kombat movie is a "Flawless Victory" or gets put in the ever growing pantheon of bad video game...

Ep 73 – The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (2021) with Taylor Fleming

4/25/2021
"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!

Ep 72 – Love and Monsters (2020) with Adam Jasim

4/18/2021
"Don't Settle. You Don't Have To. Even At The End Of The World." Generally post-apocalyptic movies can all start to feel the same and are usually kind of a big bummer (we imagine that's partly because it's about the end of the world and all that...). Luckily, this week's movie somehow creates a fresh spin to the genre with plenty of laughs, action, heart, and charm! So join Tuong and producer, DJ, vocalist, and Giant Crab Monster Adam Jasim as they journey across the land to kick ass in the...

Ep 71 – Spy (2015) with Krystal Merrells

4/11/2021
“I don't condone this sexy yet reckless behavior, Susan Cooper!” Paul Feig has brought some of the most iconic properties in the last few decades into the world from Freaks and Geeks to The Heat to even Bridesmaids. This week, we watch a Paul Feig film that isn't talked about enough that is full of a non-stop barrage of jokes and laughs. So join Tuong and Super Spy Krystal Merrells as they talk about improv and the comedic brilliance of Melissa McCarthy in 2015's Spy! The post Ep 71 – Spy...

Ep 70 – The Silence of the Lambs (1991) with Kelley Oliver

4/4/2021
"Well, Hello Clarice" Thanks to the bone-chilling performance of Anthony Hopkins, The Silence of the Lambs has become a franchise that has no shortage of sequels and spin offs that is continuing to be milked for all it's worth. But what's the big deal anyway? Join Tuong La and intrepid FBI detective in training, Kelley Oliver, as they watch this classic psychological thriller horror for the first time and crack the case on why 1991's The Silence of the Lambs is one of the most revered...

Ep 69 – Zack Snyder’s Justice League AKA The Snydercut (2021) with Angus MacDonald and Matt Barrow

3/28/2021
"There Are Six, Not Five. There Is No Us Without Him." The Snydercut is one of the weirdest things to happen in film in a long time. The Justice League came out in 2017 which was finished by another director and had a sub-par reception to it upon it's release. Since then, the internet and even cast members were demanding the big studios to help realize Zack Snyder's original vision of this movie with #ReleasetheSnyderCut. With enough persistence and whining, the internet finally got it's...

Ep 68 – Good Burger (1997) with Alli Harris

3/21/2021
"Welcome to Good Burger, home of the Good Burger! Can I take your order?" Hey look, moves in the 90's were weird. But they were also wonderful because sometimes an idea is so bananas that it wouldn't work in today's world of cinema. That's why on this week's episode, Tuong and Alli "Mondo Burger" Harris take a look at this very special moment in movie history and watch the classic Nickelodean film about fast food rivalry and "being a dude" - Good Burger!

3/14/2021
"It's a-me!" We are not quite done celebrating Mario's 35th birthday in the PodCavern! Like many games that came to the Wii U, this particular one was revered by many but played by so few...until now! So join us this week as Tuong La and Doug MacKendrick talk about the newest (sort of) cat-filled adventure of Mario re-released on the Nintendo Switch - Super Mario 3D World and the brand new free expansion Bowser's Fury!
