"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.

So join Tuong and the Dungeon…

This week join Tuong La and Stupendous Steve Experts Desiree Connors Warmington, Geoff McBride, and Leslie Cserepy as we spend a (very) lon…
 
"Get over here!" A good movie adaptation of a video game is really hard to come by since...well ever.

So join Tuong La and Earth Realm's Champion Katie Pagnucco (Impr…

Tell us when... Look, we've done a ton of food episodes on Ranked but we have often glossed over the unsung hero that are condiments. Condiments can make or break a food by giving it that little extra zing that you were missing. It can also turn a random assortment of green leafs into a helluva tasty salad or a dry piece of chicken into a mouth wat…
 
"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,…

Under the Sea, under the sea! It's time to dive into the deep blue ocean on this week's episode of Ranked! We have touched upon how wild sea creatures are on a previous episode of Ranked (see Top 5 Interesting Animals You've Never Heard About), so it stands to reason that fictional sea creatures would be even WILDER. So join Tuong and The Upford Ne…

"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.

Since then, the internet and even cast members were demanding the big studios to help rea…

"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 mo…

"There are three types of people: Those at the top, those at the bottom, and those who fall." There have been many films that have tried to provide social commentary on status and class in such a way that it's almost become it's own sub-genre of movies. And while Parasite has popularized this sub genre in such a way that it set up a very a high bar…
 
Age is just a number, especially to these butt-woopin' seniors. When we think of old people it is easy to immediately imagine that stereotype of a feeble hunched-back, white-haired individual that's slowly shuffling along with their walking cane and shaking their fist at kids. Well today's nominees completely shatter that stereotype in such a way t…

“Why do I want to attend Harvard? If I was white, would you even have to ask me that question?” Geeky kids. A party gone wrong. Geeky kids are forced into a life or death situation involving drugs.

"Time to go pound some Cunth!" These days when you say Saturday Night Live we often think about the weekly sketch show featuring a famous Hollywood guest host and some popular music artist.
