TV & Film

A weekly comedic podcast in which two massive film buffs countdown a topic from 10-1 while throwing shade at the other’s list.

Episodes

This week it's either a good time or a bad time at the El Royale as a battle line is drawn right through the middle of the hotel, with one side representing one host's view that it was a quality, suspenseful film, and the other representing the POV that it was a bag of very long winded-ass
 
And as if that wasn't enough, the boys then clash over who qualifies as a character actor in this week's countdown celebrating those actors and actresses who disappear into their roles or are so utterly believable in any supporting role they take on.
 
It's certainly a fiery one! And, surprisingly enough, it features far less talk about genitalia than usual (which is how you KNOW the lads got distracted by each other's ridiculous viewpoints!)

Have you ever shaken your head in dismay at what must go on behind the scenes in the big Hollywood studio boardrooms? Or perhaps you've rolled your eyes while sighing in disgust at the latest studio interference in what should have been a slam dunk of a film? Well Paul and Wayne certainly have and this week they're here to share their major gripes with you as they countdown their Worst 10 Hollywood Decisions. Bad casting, awful script choices, and horrendous choices of director all get a bollocking as the boys take no prisoners in going for the jugular of the Hollywood studio system. (And, of course, talk about balls and other bits of the human anatomy - just in case you were wondering ...)
 
Find out which studios, filmmakers and franchises cop it the worst, as The Countdown continues!

Strap yourself in, good listeners, because this is a classic Ep of The Countdown if ever there was one. The boys this week square off over the very best ACTION FILMS of the NEW MILLENNIUM! This is a topic near and dear to both their movie-loving hearts, so you can be sure the fireworks erupt amid the usual NSFW banter, insult-firing and jokes about a certain appendage associated only with the Y chromosome. 

Which is the best Mission: Impossible film? Should a Bad Boys film make the list? And how low is too low for Mad Mad: Fury Road? Find out on this all new Ep as The Countdown continues ...

Genitals. Everyone has them. And back in the '80s they were all the rage to show on screen. So this week Paul and Wayne invited their oldest podcasting buddies, the Epic Film Guys, Nick and Justin, on to battle over the Top 10 Raunchy Teen Comedies! Which show will triumph with the superior list of comedies featuring late teens obsessively focusing on sex, genitalia, and losing their virginity? 

Only you can decide, and this one promises to be the closest ever as both shows demonstrate VERY similar thinking when it comes to the topic at hand. 

The Ep also features one of the funniest moments ever recorded for the show, as one of the list-makers reveals something extremely personal from his experimental youth (for which you simply cannot possibly be prepared).

So sit back with a box of tissues, some hand lotion, and a raging ... intent to laugh, as The Countdown continues!

The Top 10 Last 10 Countdown is back this week, as the guys countdown ten of the latest films they've seen from worst to best. And if that sounds like there might not be too many fireworks to go with this show, you best buckle in tight, because this Ep has a bit of everything that makes this podcast what it is: disagreements, incredulous consternation, bad language, insults aplenty, antagonising use of The Soundboard, Wayne listening to the listeners and righting a viewing oversight, and even a classic rope-a-dope. 

And that's just during the Top 10 Last 10! The REAL fireworks go off when the boys square off over the latest film in a beloved sci-fi franchise and Paul's most anticipated film of 2018, Shane Black's The Predator. Negatron is most definitely in play, but is it the person who usually dons that persona this week?

This week is another Patron Directed Ep, with Chris Clifton (aka Cliffy) directing the boys to Countdown their Top 10 Most Inspirational Films. This one ends up being quite the insight into the hosts' heads (as well as their respective testosterone counts), so prepare for some deeper content ... even if it is interwoven with the same foul language and general shade-throwing that you've come to expect from The Countdown. (They really don't know any other way.)

And as it that isn't enough, the REAL controversy occurs when Wayne and Paul review this week's new release, the latest Peter Berg and Mark Whalberg collaboration, Mile 22. It's a highly combative stand-off as one of the boys likes it a great deal, and the other wouldn't defecate on it for all the money at a sleazy Amsterdam nightclub. 

So strap yourselves in ladies and gentlemen, this one gets a bit wild as The Countdown continues ...

Which works fine for this episode, because this week, the boys are counting down their Top Ten Sword and Sorcery films!

"How did this freakin' movie get made?"
 
That's what Paul and Wayne are waxing lyrical about this week - they're counting down the top ten films that just straight-up shouldn't have worked, but somehow did!
 
Some choices are films with a ridiculous premise that no-expected to get the green light. In other cases, it's a production so troubled, the whole film was gonna be left on the cutting room floor. In at least one case, it's just Paul being a combative anus. Also, Wayne wrote this show copy.

Sometimes, you’re in the mood for a racy, risqué, titillating film.

But sadly, that film often winds up being pure crap, which causes you to facepalm halfway through, leaving  a goopy layer of lanolin all over your face. Ew.

Join Paul and Wayne for a way-too-graphic countdown of the WORST erotic films of all time! (Cinematically released ones, of course.) Can the boys out-gross each other with their most laughably crap Hollywood soft-core movies? Which ones failed to deliver any wood? Which ones involved gallons of bodily fluid? And which ones are just straight-up stupid?

Paul and Wayne were recently rocking out to Tenacious D and they were struck by a moment of inspiration while listening to the track Double Team  - a Countdown of their Top Ten Film Teams!
 
Join Paul and Wayne as they trade barbs over which teams on the big screen rocked the MOST. Paul's middle finger is extended at Wayne's choices. Wayne's left nut is sore after trying to jam it in Paul's nostril.

That's all on the back of their Mission: Impossible - Fallout review! Is this film as baller as all the reviews are suggesting? Is it worth seeing a second time at the cinema?

Ever screwed up your nose at the pure stank of a film that took itself too seriously? The Countdown boys sure have - and they're here to throw rocks at their top ten list of pretentious films! Seriously, these movies are the celluloid equivalent of adding #blessed to every stupid facebook post.
 
And this week in the new Show Vs Show format, the boys are going up against Joey and Markellus from the highly revered So Wizard Podcast to see which show has the best list! Which podcast will win? Only you can decide!

Do you like animals? Do you have a loyal canine who greets you at the door every day? Or maybe you prefer the aloof charm and lap warming efforts of a furry feline? Either way, if animals of any kind make you melt and say "Awww" (except geese, they're as annoying as hell), then THIS is the Countdown for you, as the lads rank the very best films which focus on animals! Despite the heart-warming topic, this one gets a bit rough, folks, as at least one host loses their sh*t during this one, and both have some serious selection regret before the end of the show! 

There's also a review of the latest MCU film, Ant-Man and the Wasp, and it's fair to say the guys have very different reactions to what Marvel has served up this time around.

This week, it's the return of a fan favourite Ep, the Top 10 Last 10! Paul and Wayne mini-review ten films they've each recently seen (but yet to speak about on the show), ordering from worst to best, and letting you know when they cross the line from trash to recommended. Which film does Paul believe is by far the worst of the year so far? Which film does Wayne love more than some of what Paul considers to be the year's best? And how many new Soundboard drops will Paul hit Wayne with?

Find out the answers to all of these questions and more as The Countdown continues ...

Most have questioned it; many have doubted it would ever happen. But it is now official: Television is BACK on the Countdown!

This week Paul and Wayne honour the pledge of another Number One Patron and exceptional all round person, Sally Vaughan, in giving their Top 10 TV Shows Which Should Get the Movie Treatment. Be it a sequel or reboot, the guys list their favourite shows which they'd love to see on the big screen and explain how they'd make the transition. Things start our innocuoulsy enough, but it's only a matter of time before choices cause incredulity, inflammatory remarks and temporary insanity - and not just in Paul. Ohhhh!

The lads also find time to squeeze in a review of Sicario: Day of the Soldado, which opened to very little fanfare or buzz this last week. Does it hold up to the original? Or is it a pale imitator?

Hunker down for some snide banter, sputtering objections and utterly needless soundboard drops (Edit: Wayne wrote that bit) as the Countdown Continues!

Time Stamps:

Recount: 2:41 – 6:38

Sicario: Day of the Soldado NON-SPOILER Review: 6:38 – 16:12

Sicario: Day of the Soldado SPOILER-FILLED Discussion: 16:12 – 23:45

Top 10 TV Shows That Should Get the Movie Treatment: 22:45 – 1:15:16

Listener Feedback: 1:15:16 - 1:20:27

It's battle royale time, folks! This week Paul and Wayne go head to head with Kade and Troy from the kick-ass Comic Confidential podcast, counting down each team's top ten Pop Culture Defining films!  

Once again, Paul and Wayne can't agree on what the damn list should really be, because Wayne took the brief literally and everyone else on the planet got it wrong (Paul and the rest of the planet have a different view on this.) But it's still a hell of a tournament between two podcasting juggernauts, with some big calls, bigger laughs, and even a discussion about a real life Fight Club that one of the hosts participated in - which, let's face it, is reason enough alone to listen. And that's not even taking into account Paul going full-Negatron on Jurassic World: Fallen Rectum in the main review.

 
Who will triumph with the superior list? The pop-culture "experts" (aka villains!) Comic Confidential? Or the hometown heroic underdogs, the Countdown? Only you can decide!
 
For all your pop culture, in-fighting and inappropriate joke needs, keep it right here on The Countdown!
 

Time Stamps:

Recount: 3:36 – 6:28

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom NON-SPOILER Review: 6:28 – 16:14 

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom SPOILER-FILLED Discussion: 16:14 – 29:13

Top 10 Pop Culture Defining Films vs Comic Confidential: 29:13 – 1:27:40

Listener Feedback: 1:27:40 - 1:32:37

This week Wayne and Paul allow their inner children to reign supreme (so, basically, it's a typical show) as they review Incredibles 2 and then countdown the best kids films which are equally great for adults. It's parent versus non-parent, but just how different do the lists end up being? Find out as The Countdown continues ...

Who's up for hearing about Wayne soiling his pants in a theatre? Everyone? Great.

Join the fellers for a round of countdowning aimed squarely at the sphincter, as Wayne kicks and screams his way through Hereditary (aka a damn fine horror film)! Delight in Paul's mirth at watching Wayne squeal like a little whiny-ass wuss, then nod/curse along as the fellers count down their top ten scariest scenes ever put to film.

Will Wayne sack up and out himself through the horror movie wringer to produce a good list? Or is this another case of squealing man-child fumbles the ball? Find out as The Countdown continues ...
