The Top 10 Films of 2019

Well, here it is, dear listener, the culmination of the episodes shouting out the best and worst that 2019 had to offer. The boys have covered television and the worst films of the year, so now it's time to focus on the good. Nay, the GREAT! As Wayne and Paul this week countdown their very favourite films of 2019.
 
Now Paul has bee on record all year suggesting 2019 has eaten many bags of ass, so is he able to make a list of ten films or is he singing a different tune by the end of the Ep? And just how many "non-Paul" choices can his list manage? Wayne, meanwhile, does his usual thing with some very surprising choices, but does he find room for a horror film on his list? And can he love Seth Rogen any harder?
 
Find the answers to all these questions - and more! - as The Countdown continues ...

The Gentlemen review

Guy Ritchie returns to the genre that made him ... (well, Madonna's fashion accessory) ... the cockney gangster film! This time he brings Matthew McConaughey along for the ride, arms him with Charlie Hunnam, and has Hugh Grant and Colin Farrell occupy some very entertaining support roles. But is it all good enough to get near the hallowed ground occupied by Snatch and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels? And is there such a thing as too many uses of the C-word?

The WORST 10 Films of 2019

It is THAT time of year again. Wayne and Paul's Public Service Announcement where the very worst films of the preceding year are named and shamed, in the hope that YOU, dear listener, can be saved the pain and suffering that the boys endured in watching these massive POSs.

Just how angry will Paul get? Who or what will be the main subject of his ire? And does Wayne get on board the bagging-out train in a big way, or can he remain pure and chaste through this one? (Ha! This is Wayne we're talking about!)

The Witcher review

Gamers have been eagerly awaiting Netflix's The Witcher to arrive, so they can watch Geralt of Rivia strut his stuff on the small screen, while Wayne was just frothing at the mouth to see Henry Cavill back in the saddle (ie half naked in the bath) ...

Man-crushes aside, the boys this week aim to determine if the new streaming series is any good and worth the eight plus hours of your time. Is this an intriguing establishing first season? Or is it needlessly complicated for non-gamers and too slow to make its point?

Find out as The Countdown continues into 2020!

2019 has all but ended and therefore it's time for the boys to kick off their traditional review of the year by first of all focusing on the small screen - that's right, television!
 
In the least formatted Ep of the year, Paul and Wayne talk through a non pre-determined number of shows, starting with their picks for the worst of the year and culminating with their reveals of the very best television for 2019.
 
Not surprisingly, Paul has more shows on his worst of list, but what controversial season does Wayne try to shoehorn in on both his worst AND best list? And who will have more genre shows on their list by the time this one is over?
 
Find the answers to all these burning questions and more as The Countdown continues ...

The Rise of Skywalker review

So it all comes to an end. After 42 years, the Skywalker saga comes to a close, with JJ Abrams entrusted to guide the saga through its conclusion, but can the man who made Star Trek cool again and wowed most with The Force Awakens stick the landing? Or was it a baffling move by Disney to re-hire him after he refused the offer to do Episode VIII and then clearly didn't like the choices Rian Johnson made in that film?

The boys answer these questions AND give their definitive ranking of all Star Wars films as The Countdown continues ...

This week, the boys wrap up the Best of the Decade series of shows by inviting Gerald from Two Peas on a Podcast and Wesley from the Via VHS Podcast on to team up with their list of the Top 10 Sci-Fi Films of the 2010s. So it's North Carolina versus Australia, with the home ground advantage to The Countdown boys. But will it be enough? Both lists have some cracker films (and there is an extraordinary number of cross-ups, all things considered) with some critically important differences.

Is Blade Runner 2049 worthy of this list? Does Wayne shoehorn a Tom Cruise film onto this list? And can Paul find a way to include Mad Max: Fury Road AGAIN?

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

6 Underground review

BAAYHEMMMMM! Love him or hate him, Michael Bay has run off with a significant proportion of Netflix's budget for 2019 to produce a more nuanced and mature blockbuster for the streaming gia-BWAHAHAHAHAHA!

Of course he hasn't! Michael Bay returns with more crass language, more ludicrous stunts, and way more death and violence than any Transformers movie! Of course it's NOT any good, but is it entertaining?
