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

Did you know Wayne owns a copy of Attack of the Clones on DVD and LOVES it?! That's the most shocking news to come out of Ep 189 in which the boys get a whole heap of baggage off their chests by going to town on the films which disappointed them the most in their movie-watching lives.

No franchise, cinematic universe or beloved film series is sacred in this Countdown, with the guys sinking the boot right in to ten films each which tore their hearts out and tossed them away into the gutter like cheap pieces of trash.

All this AND a review of The Girl in the Spider's Web, which, it has to be said, fits the theme of this week's episode very nicely.

Time Stamps:

Recount: 2:13 - 7:46

The Girl in the Spider's Web NON-SPOILER Review: 7:46 - 17:19

The Girl in the Spider's Web SPOILER-FILLED Discussion: 17:19 - 22:58

The 10 Most Disappointing Films of All Time: 22:58 - 1:21:36

This week the boys are all about music in their movies as Patron Geordie Davidson directed them to countdown the very best movies about music! Now, to be clear, this is NOT a countdown of musicals which many have asked for, but rather films which focus on music in some (major) way throughout their run time. Should The Blues Brothers count? How annoyed will Wayne be when he realises he's forgotten three films he should have put on his list? And how many romances will Paul, completely against type, end up with on his list?

The answer to all these questions are just part of the Ep though, as the boys also get busy reviewing the much hyped but critically mixed Bohemian Rhapsody, while Paul has a big announcement to share with everyone.

So warm up those vocal chords, strum out a few power chords, and get ready to bang the drum as The Countdown continues ...

Time Stamps:

Recount: 2:07 - 8:28

Bohemian Rhapsody NON-SPOILER Review: 8:28 - 23:17

Holy crap, this one turned out to be a thinker! 
 
Join Paul and Wayne this week for a heated countdown of the top ten reboots! Part of the reason it gets so prickly is a fair degree of consternation over just what constitutes a reboot? Is it the same as a remake? And where do prequels fit in? The answer may make you throw the damn phone across the room as Wayne decides to break one of the show's long agreed upon rules to compile his list; while Paul utilises his crystal ball and resorts to the intent of a film to justify his.

And that's all after the guys come at the 2018 "rebootaquel" (copyright, trade mark, it's ours, damnit!), Halloween, from very different perspectives. Could this be another horror that Wayne begrudgingly digs? Find out as the Countdown continues!

Crime is bad. Unless it's fictional and entertaining as hell.
 
This week, Paul and Wayne are joined by Billy and Topher from the We Watched a Thing podcast to get criminal on each other's asses! Cackle along as the fellers rag on each other's choices and go head to head counting down the top ten movie crimes!
 
Which crimes were impressive purely due to cleverness? How complex does a caper have to be to hit their lists? And can a crime be good simply because the folks doing it are just so damn cool?

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 ...)

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?

In this Ep, "Nun Shall Pass!" as Paul and Wayne tear down the latest film in the Conjuring universe; before giving what most would consider too much of an insight into what little "game" they have with women as they reveal their Top 10 Date Movie!

Be it early in the dating process, or after spending years with that special someone, the boys reveal some pearlers (and a bunch of dodgy choices) which are sure to bring you and your present or future-based significant other a little closer together.
