Captain Marvel review

 

Despite the determined trolls out there, Captain Marvel has killed it at the box office and Paul and Wayne give their thoughts in an in-depth review of the 21st film in the MCU! Is it top-tier Marvel or does it slide down the list when compared to the last ten years of releases? And what will the guys' final scores be when one of them is relatively unimpressed and the other seems quite enamoured with the film?

Non-Spoiler Review: 0:00 - 15:57

Spoiler-Filled Thoughts: 15:57 - 21:44

Final Scores: 21:44 - 23:03

Ever been so totally shocked by a moment in a film you struggled to process it? What about being unable to speak out of sheer consternation at what you've just seen? Or maybe you were just so angry at a choice a movie made that you wanted to rail at the stars? (Which, for the record, is still better than becoming an internet troll.)
 
Well, Paul and Wayne have experienced all of the above, so this week they're counting down their Top 10 WTF Movie Moments! Which is your cue to strap yourselves in as the boys cover everything from shocking deaths to a particular animal's breasts. (Yes, sadly, you read that correctly).
 
In other words, it's more of the chaos you've come to expect, as The Countdown continues ...

Green Book review

Green Book: the best film of 2018, according to the Academy. But is it? Wayne and Paul this week dive into this polarising film and give their verdict on whether it should have won the Oscar for Best Picture and go down in history as such.

NOTE: This whole review is spoiler free (though Wayne tries his absolute best at one point before Paul shoots him down).

Widows review

Once again, the box office has failed the boys, so they're turning the clock back to late 2018 to take a look at Steve McQueen's Widows and its all-star cast. The boys give their thoughts amid hypothesising why this film was such a failure and failed to garner the Oscar buzz that it was anticipated to generate. And find out who changes their tune (to some degree) through the course of the review ...
 

Time Stamps:

Widows NON-SPOILER Review: 0:00 - 11:50

Widows SPOILER-FILLED Discussion: 11:50 - 17:49

Final Scores: 17:49 - 19:05

This week the boys are flying their geek flags high as they celebrate the coolest weapons ever committed to film! Swords, pistols, rifles, laser guns, vehicle mounted weapons and vehicles which ARE weapons themselves are ALL fair game (hell, there may even be a couple of choices which some would not instantly recognise as weapons), as the guys clash over several choices on each other's lists!

In short, this one brought about much laughter and consternation while recording, so set your phasers to fun and enjoy the ride as The Countdown continues ...

Alita: Battle Angel review

This week's feature review is kicking off with Alita: Battle Angel, the new Robert Rodriguez film which James Cameron reportedly spent 15 years developing. 15 years! Was it worth his time? Did the film impress Paul and Wayne with its effects, world-building, characters and plot? Or was it just another piece of James Cameron eye candy containing little to no substance?
 
And how far off the wall will this review go when Paul makes a tactical decision and brings up the wrong kind of fodder for Wayne to riff on ...
 
Find out as The Countdown continues!

Alita: Battle Angel NON-SPOILER Review: 0:00 - 13:28

Alita: Battle Angel SPOILER-FILLED Discussion: 13:28 - 22:13

This week Daniel and Dean from The IMDB Journey Podcast go head to head with Wayne and Paul with their combined lists of Top 10 Best Picture Oscar Winners! It's a classic tale of East vs West (of Australia) as pride goes on the line between two highly competitive podcasts ... Well, two highly competitive people at least (ie. Paul and Daniel) as while Wayne and Dean listen on in mildly bemused fashion...

Please thank Daniel and Dean for coming on the show by checking out their highly entertaining podcast at https://player.whooshkaa.com/shows/the-imdb-journey
