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

This week the guys kick off their Oscars coverage with the first of two shows dedicated to the Academy Awards. First cab off the rank is the very best leading performances to win an Academy Award. Female and males are both fair game as Paul and Wayne celebrate those performances which truly blew them away, regardless of whether they liked the film said performances were in. It's a bit of different episode, as it's rare the guys focus on acting in films, making for a fun discussion which is mostly civil until Wayne produces a film Paul cannot stomach ...

The guys also give their 91st Oscar predictions for seven different categories and put some stakes on it to make things interesting!

And in a segment that is as far away from Oscar winning as is conceivably possible, the boys shine the light back on Steven Seagal and his ludicrous ways in Seagal Watch.

 

Time Codes:

Seagal Watch: 4:34 - 6:59

91st Academy Award Predictions: 6:59 - 15:50

Top 10 Academy Award Winning Lead Performances: 15:50 - 51:30

Velvet Buzzsaw review

00:0000:00

Dan Gilroy, Jake Gylenhaal and Rene Russo are back together after the success of Nightcrawler with the latest "big" Netflix release, Velvet Buzzsaw, and the lads are here to tell you whether it was worth getting the gang back together. Is Velvet Buzzsaw a good blend of satirical comedy and supernatural horror? Or is it a wet fart of a film which squanders its talented cast?

 

Time Stamps:

Velvet Buzzsaw NON-SPOILER Review: 0:00 - 10:59

Velvet Buzzsaw SPOILER-FILLED Discussion: 10:59 - 16:04

Final Scores: 16:04 - 16:32

The Show vs Show format is back for 2019, as old friend to the show Toffa drags along Sean, his co-host from the Master Debaters podcast, to take on Paul and Wayne with their respective list of the very best movie prequel ideas!

Hollywood take note, as both teams come out firing with some awesome ideas which might reinvigorate a type of film which is typically much-maligned! Find out which team thinks From Dusk Til Dawn is begging for a prequel that doesn't involve a Hangman's Daughter, as well as which side believes the origins of a young John Wick need to be explored far more fruitfully ...

As always when the Master Debaters grace the show with their presence, this one is a great deal of fun. Please thank Toffa and Sean by checking out their great show over at https://radiomisfits.com/podcasts/masterdebaters/# (Note: the links they mention in the show did not work!)

Polar review

00:0000:00

With cinema releases continuing to prove underwhelming in 2019, the lads again turned to Netflix to be their saviour by reviewing the new Mad Mikkelsen led comic-book adaptation, Polar. Directed by Jonas Åkerlund, the film follows a super-assassin haunted by his past who just wants to retire peacefully but his soon-to-be ex-employer as other ideas... One of the guys hated it, the other gave it a soft pass, but have  Paul and Wayne been unduly harsh?

Find out in this week's feature review!

 

Time Stamps:

Polar NON-SPOILER Review: 0:00 - 11:03

Polar SPOILER-FILLED Discussion: 11:03 - 16:33

Final Scores: 16:33 - 17:08

201 weeks ago Wayne and Paul kicked off their dinky little podcast, dropping themselves in among the billion other shows that feature a couple of guys reviewing what they've watched. There was one week where an Ep failed to drop due to ill health, but otherwise, the lads have week in and week out continued to review things they've watched and count down topics relating to film and (very occasionally) television. And somehow they've made it here: Episode 200.

They might still be just another film review show among countless others, but now they have a loyal group of listeners, and it is to YOU that this Ep is dedicated. Every single one of you who has ever downloaded and listened to an Ep of the show. Because this one is all about YOUR Top 20 favourite films of all time!

Having collated a list of 385 films from 81 listeners, Paul and Wayne reveal your Top 20 amid the usual banter, bad language, and questionable euphemisms you've come to expect. AND, to mark this special occasion, there's even a one-off update to the Soundboard which should please long-term fans.

So kick back and enjoy the 200th Countdown, and know that it is all down to YOU that the show will continue on toward 300 Eps!

Glass review

For this week's feature review, the guys light up a torch and get ready to blow Glass ... No, wait, that didn't come out right. Let's start again ...

This week the lads check out M. Night Shyamalan's latest film in his grounded superhero verse, Glass, and answer the question which most every fan of Unbreakable or Split has been asking since the first trailer for it dropped. Is Glass "class " or "ass"?

Time Stamps:

Glass NON-SPOILER Review: 2:45 - 12:23

Glass SPOILER-FILLED Discussion: 12:23 - 21:55

Final Scores: 21:55 - 23:05

It's an often ugly fight between two opposing camps - the DC fan base versus the Marvel fan base. Both groups are passionate, proud fans and neither are willing to acknowledge that class can exist on the other side of that comic book (film) divide. So this week Paul and Wayne are bravely stepping between the two groups to determine, once and for all, beyond all shadow of a doubt, which battery of superhero-related films is superior to the other!

So don your tights, put on your masks and limber up those super powers, because it's time to get heroic with a pair of super-geeky types who are putting it all on the line as The Countdown continues ...

Bandersnatch review

00:0000:00

Game-changing entertainment? Or over-hyped oversized Ep of Black Mirror? That's the question the guys answer this week as they go deep into Bandersnatch (both literally and in a euphemistic sense) - the new choose your own adventure film from Charlie Brooker and David Slade.

(And apologies in advance for Wayne's predictable riffs on the film's title.)

Time Stamps:

Bandersnatch NON-SPOILER Review: 2:58 - 10:11

Bandersnatch SPOILER-FILLED Discussion: 10:11 - 17:00

Final Scores: 17:00 - 17:30

 

Don't forget! The boys are asking YOU for your help to make the 200th Ep a fantastic one!
