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!
*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.
22 films that we love 3000!
11 years ago there was an idea, an idea to create a shared universe of remarkable movies based on comic books that would change everything in pop-culture and cinema as we know it. Like it or not, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is not only the largest franchise in movie history but also has redefined genres, reinvigorated comics, and inspired people all over the world. With Avengers: Endgame, we have finally seen the “Infinity Saga” come to and end, and while there are more comic book movies that will surely come out, we have truly reached an end of an era. This week join Tuong La and the Assembled Avengers Matt Barrow, Stenley Philippe, and Stephen Peeling as they celebrate the last 11 years of MCU movies and use the Infinity Gauntlet to snap together a Top 5 list of the best moments!
What could be the craziest month’s for Nerd Culture in recent history, Tuong La and Pull the Plug’s Justin Godelie step up to the plate and talk about all the juicy things that came out in April! Join them as they go to hell and never return watching the newest Hellboy, zap into magical supermen discussing Shazam!, and see the Infinity Saga come to an end chattin’ about Avengers: Endgame!

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!

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!
