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

Countdown #280

 

This week is the yang to last week's ying as the boys countdown the films which FAILED to fool them. That is, plot twists they called early on or plot developments that seemed obvious to them all along. Along the way, they manage to call out marketing companies who cut trailers together, and suggest superhero films should stop fake-killing their main characters.

 

PLUS the guys give away another Countdown prize pack, and there's a new grab on the Soundboard which Paul plays to good (and repetitive) effect!
 

All this and whole lot more as The Countdown continues ...

Unhinged review

It's the first decently budgeted film released back into theatres in some territories around the world, and Western Australia is one of those territories. As such, the boys jetted out to the cinema and saw Russy Crowe's new thriller, Unhinged.
 
Is Crowe now the biggest star in Hollywood again? Wayne certainly thinks so, but maybe not for the reasons you think. While Paul is perplexed by the overall message the film is putting out there.
 
But is this one worth a trip to see on the big screen? Find out, as The Countdown continues ...

Has a movie ever fooled you? That is, taken you completely by surprise while pulling the rug out from under you, and left you nodding appreciatively and thinking "Well, played, Movie, well played"? Well, Wayne and Paul are very familiar with such a reaction and this week they've decided to countdown the very best instances of when films completely took them for a ride ...

 

Who still can't believe Tim Robbins was such a fiend in Arlington Road? Which of the lads somehow failed to piece together who the little brother was in The Accountant? And who was more blown away by M Night Shyamalan's first (and greatest) twist ending?

 

Learn the answers to all these questions and more as The Countdown continues ...

Con Air (1997) review

Warning: There are Spoilers throughout!
 
This week the lads are going back to when the mullets were long, the accents were wavering, and the fashion sense was non-existent (sandals and socks with a suit, wtf?). Yes, that's right, they're heading to 1997 and the Nicolas Cage action-thriller, Con Air.
 
Paul has long defended this action cheese fest as his favourite Cage film of all time, but has this podcasting gig soured his sense of fun? And will Wayne fall into line or demand that Paul, "Put the bunny back in the box"?

The boys this week take it upon themselves to mini-review ten recently released films each, ranking them from worst to best, as an aid to all in lockdown affected parts of the world, including the Australian state of Victoria. Included are reviews for everything from The Wrong Missy to Underwater; Scoob! to The Outpost.

And, word to the wise, dear listener. Prepare yourself to be outraged, mortified, and maybe even plain embarrassed by Wayne's controversial take on a big hit at Sundance earlier this year ...  as The Countdown continues ...

Countdown #277

This week, the boys are getting in some solid foot tapping with thanks to Patron, David Powell, who selected the topic for this week: the Top 10 Original Movie Themes. Be they soundtrack or score, Paul and Wayne have scoured the internet as well as their hearts and memories to bring you the very best tracks featured in films that were written for said films. Wayne predominantly features songs written for film soundtracks, while equally true to form, Paul has largely stuck with scores.

Who will have the more memorable list? Which one will touch your heart even as you tap your foot and (maybe) start to sing along?

The Old Guard review

Charlize Theron! Action! Superhero!
 
Who didn't get on board when they heard those four words strung together for the latest big-budget Netflix release, The Old Guard? Certainly not Paul and Wayne who could barely contain their glee to be checking out a new film with some money behind it. But only one emerged from the film thinking it was any good ... Who was it? What did the other find so egregiously wrong with the film? And why is he such a miserable Negatron?
 
Learn the answer to all these questions and more, as The Countdown continues ...

Countdown #276
 
This week it's a BIG one with the one and only Rachel from the Fangirling Podcast joining the boys to balance out the usual amount of testosterone as they countdown the Top 10 Romantic Couples from film or television.
 
How do the guys stack up against Rachel with all of Coupledom across multiple mediums to choose from?
 
Well, Paul is apparently whipped by a particular part of the female anatomy, while Wayne can't even remember the names of half of his couples. Rachel, meanwhile, brings the awesomeness to a bumper Episode of the show.
Find out how awesome, as The Countdown continues ...
 
Please thank Rachel for guesting on the show by checking out everything Fangirling at https://ccradio.com.au/podcast/fangirling/
