“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? Join the two biggest Space Jam nerds on the planet Tuong and Alli Harris as they get looney talking all things Space Jam: A New Legacy!

“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!

“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!

“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.

“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!

“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!

“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 stage musical to the big screen a no brainer. So join Tuong and Huge Broadway Nerd/Disney Dummies Laura Gordon as they sing and dance their way through talking about 2021’s In the Heights!

“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 gush about Bo’s latest Netflix special which he edited, directed, shot, performed all by himself: Inside.

“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 survive the onslaught of zombies (and Dave Bautista’s muscles) by talking about 2021’s Army of the Dead!

“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 with a dapper red hat, and blue coat and see why these are the most well reviewed movies of all time – Paddington 1 & 2!
