173 – Top 5 Pixar Movies

It is another CROSSOVER special in today’s episode of Ranked! If you don’t already know the Disney Dummies went on a mission to watch every single Disney Animated Feature in chronological order, discuss them at length, argue about the merits of the movie, shared fun facts, talked about which characters had f*ck energy, and so much more. They eventually caught up and are still on the Disney Train, but needed a second challenge. That challenge was Pixar and so Disney Dummies x Pixar Pals was born and the cycle started again! Flash forward again to present day where they have ALSO caught up to Pixar as well and the time again is now to make a definitive list of which movies are the best! So join the Pixar Pals (Tuong La, Laura Gordon, Samantha Leggatt, and Brad Sales) as they get those snakes outta their boots and rank Top 5 Pixar Movies!

172 – Top 5 Weird of Silly National Days

It’s National Ranking Day!

Okay it’s not but if we told you that, you’d probably believe it’s real because there’s essentially a plethora of random National Days EVERY DAY of the year for EVERYTHING. They range from being wholesome to totally obscure to so incredibly niche that you wonder why it got it’s own National Day to begin with. That’s kind of the beauty and chaos of it all and we are here today to shoutout the strangest/silliest out of the bunch! So join Tuong La and our favourite idiots at Pull the Plug Justin Godelie, Shannon Godelie, and Justin Briner as they flip through the obscure depths of the calendar and to rank Top 5 Weird or Silly National Days.

171 – Top 5 Mythical Creatures

Tale as old as time.

The stories of mythical creatures have captivated the minds and imaginations of people around the world for centuries. Part of the fascination stems from tapping into deep-seated aspects of human psychology, culture, and our universal desire for meaning and connection. Or maybe another part of the interest for this multifaceted phenomenon simply comes from these creatures just looking cool as hell and have fun stories to go along with it. Either way we felt compelled to dive into this exciting meaty topic. So this week join Tuong and Mythical Podcast Legends Desiree Connors Warmington, Kristine Shadid, and Amanda Parker as they journey through mystical realms and drum up some magic to make a Top 5 Mythical Creatures list. 

170 – Top 5 X-Men Characters

To me, my X-Men!

What’s there to say that hasn’t already been said about the X-Men? They are easily some of comic books most recognizable teams and for good reason! Not only is it consistently telling quality stories about marginalized groups and discrimination in the form of superheroes, but it also has had a myriad of movies, video games, tv shows, and more! Now the X-Men haven’t always had a home run when it comes to it’s movies, but with the recent boom of the X-Men ’97 TV show we’d be remiss not to talk about all the cool mutants that are in this beloved property. So join Tuong and his Brotherhood of Mutant Weirdos Angus MacDonald, Rich Hilborn, and Taylor Fleming as they mind meld their brains in Cerebro and come up with a Top 5 X-Men Characters list!

So join Tuong and his Rat Pack Victoria Luloff, Jess Maybear and Axandre Lemours as they scour the sewers and the streets to come up with Top 5 Fictional Rodents!
