This week the guys are pitting two legendary directors against one another: David Fincher and Christopher Nolan. Both have directed ten films, both are renowned for being selective with what they take on, and both have left their mark on film in the last 25 years. But who is the superior director? Wayne and Paul are prepared to make the call as they utilise their patented, completely objective, and in no way questionable scoring system to pick a winner based off their list of the top 10 films between both.

So tune in for many cross-ups, some howls of outrage (or "Loooow!" if you prefer), and some extra work from the mixer ... as The Countdown continues.

Something a little different this week as neither off the guys are into Pokemon, meaning they had to get creative with Detective Pikachu the only wide release on offer. As such, the guys went into their Patreon vault and drew out their review of the Martin Campbell directed, Daniel Craig superstar maker, Casino Royale. This was previously only available to Patrons of the show, but as a sample of all the extra content available to the show's supporters, here is this retro review for you to sample.

Can Wayne put aside his James Bond man-crush long enough to review the film objectively? And does Paul find a way to enjoy this one, having never been a big Bond fan? Find out as The Countdown continues ...

This week the boys are continuing their world tour of the best films by country ... by staying right at home to celebrate the Top 10 Aussie films! This is a topic they did when the show was first starting, but they're revisiting it four years later to see whether their initial views have changed, and what might have forced its way onto the list since that last discussion.

Has Wayne come round to realise that Australian films can be just as classy as those from other film industry in the world? And how many Mad Max films will wind up on Paul's list? Find the answers to these questions and so much more as The Countdown continues ...

Long Shot review

This week, the boys review the new Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron odd-couple comedy, Long Shot. It's counter-programming at its finest with Avengers: Endgame continuing to take ALL the money in the word, but can a rom-com with an uncouth edge somehow make a tidy profit in the current market? And just how gross does this Episode become when bodily fluids somehow become involved?

The real long shot however, is Paul somehow liking this rom-com more than Wayne. Can it possibly be? Find out as The Countdown continues ...

Time Stamps:

Long Shot NON-SPOILER Review: 0:00 - 11:43

Long Shot SPOILER-FILLED Thoughts: 11:43 - 17:18

Final Thoughts including potential spoilers: 17:18 - 18:46

WARNING: Do NOT eat while listening to this Episode!

This week the boys re-define the depths of grossness as they go all out to test the boundaries of decorum and good taste (but, like, more than usual) as they countdown their Top 10 Gross-Out Comedies of all time!

Every kind of bodily secretion gets far more attention than any one hour of entertainment should allow. And to the surprise of both, it is Wayne who breaks hardest. In a Countdown Podcast first, listen in to learn which Paul chosen and detailed film breaks Wayne and has him declare he can't go on recording!

All this and so much more as The Countdown continues ...

The numbers are in and Avengers: Endgame is the biggest film to have ever opened in movie history! So, of course, the guys have seen it and have their perspectives on whether the film succeeds or falls short of the epic expectations it set for itself with the previous 21 films in the Infinity War saga.

Naturally, the boys have a difference of opinions with Wayne having seen it twice and Paul only just walking out of the cinema to record this review. But who is #Negatron this time around? Will Wayne continue his film hating ways, or will Paul steal back the mantle?

And find out what as#$*le deliberately spoiled the film for Paul ...

Time Stamps:

Avengers: Endgame NON-SPOILER Review: 0:00 - 10:02

Avengers: Endgame Spoiler-Filled Thoughts: 10:02 - 27:35

This week is a very special Episode as the boys say goodbye to one of their very best friends - Scott, a real life hero who valiantly fought cancer for eight years before finally succumbing to the disease - by counting down their Top 10 Heroic Movie Moments

What ultimate sacrifice is duly acknowledged? What brave act is honoured? Paul and Wayne have a few similar ideas, but it isn't long before this one becomes a full on sledging match like the days of old. So strap yourselves in for a competitive Ep as The Countdown continues ...

 

The best way to help others like Scott is to donate to charities funding research into cancer, and great friends of the show, the Epic Film Guys are all about that next month between May 17th and 19th with their annual Livestream for the Cure event, Find out all about their efforts to raise $7500 to fight cancer and learn how you can donate to such an important cause at https://fundraise.cancerresearch.org/fundraiser/1947095

Hellboy review

This week the boys suffer through hell - Hellboy, to be specific! - to save you from the same fate. Just how bad is this critically panned turkey? Or can Neil Marshall salvage something from the smoking ruin that was the behind the scenes dramas? And most importantly, is there a new #Negatron in the house?

Oh and the guys effectively abandon the whole spoiler thing they're so upset at the film so be warned: SPOILERS KICK OFF from 13:45!

This week, the boys are getting their cry on as they tap into everything that plucks at their heart strings in discussing the Top 10 Tear Jerkers aka Top 10 Films That Made Them Cry. 

Wayne is convinced this topic makes him look like less of a man, while Paul wonders whether people will actually acknowledge he does have a heart after hearing this Ep.

Either way, there are plenty of touching moments (no, really) spread between the typically crass humour (yep, really) as The Countdown continues ...
