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

"How did this freakin' movie get made?"
 
That's what Paul and Wayne are waxing lyrical about this week - they're counting down the top ten films that just straight-up shouldn't have worked, but somehow did!
 
Some choices are films with a ridiculous premise that no-expected to get the green light. In other cases, it's a production so troubled, the whole film was gonna be left on the cutting room floor. In at least one case, it's just Paul being a combative anus. Also, Wayne wrote this show copy.

Sometimes, you’re in the mood for a racy, risqué, titillating film.

But sadly, that film often winds up being pure crap, which causes you to facepalm halfway through, leaving  a goopy layer of lanolin all over your face. Ew.

Join Paul and Wayne for a way-too-graphic countdown of the WORST erotic films of all time! (Cinematically released ones, of course.) Can the boys out-gross each other with their most laughably crap Hollywood soft-core movies? Which ones failed to deliver any wood? Which ones involved gallons of bodily fluid? And which ones are just straight-up stupid?

To find out, turn the lights down low, fire up the Marvin Gaye and hit this link for some huge laughs and non-existent boners as The Countdown continues!

(Oh and stick around for the blooper/out-take this week. It's a doozy.)

Paul and Wayne were recently rocking out to Tenacious D and they were struck by a moment of inspiration while listening to the track Double Team  - a Countdown of their Top Ten Film Teams!
 
Join Paul and Wayne as they trade barbs over which teams on the big screen rocked the MOST. Paul's middle finger is extended at Wayne's choices. Wayne's left nut is sore after trying to jam it in Paul's nostril. And both hosts are still really surprised that people would ever consider having a "double team supreme" with Jack Black and KG ...
 
That's all on the back of their Mission: Impossible - Fallout review! Is this film as baller as all the reviews are suggesting? Is it worth seeing a second time at the cinema? And what would they do if The D kindly offered to turn them into a rotisserie chicken? The answer to ...some of these questions are all in this week's Countdown!

Ever screwed up your nose at the pure stank of a film that took itself too seriously? The Countdown boys sure have - and they're here to throw rocks at their top ten list of pretentious films! Seriously, these movies are the celluloid equivalent of adding #blessed to every stupid facebook post.
 
And this week in the new Show Vs Show format, the boys are going up against Joey and Markellus from the highly revered So Wizard Podcast to see which show has the best list! Which podcast will win? Only you can decide! 
 
And speaking of pretentiousness, you also get a side of The Equalizer 2 review! Can you guess how the fellers felt about it? (You're right.)
 
With a pinky in the air and a johnson in both hands, keep it right here on The Countdown for all your pompous-movie-bashing needs!

Do you like animals? Do you have a loyal canine who greets you at the door every day? Or maybe you prefer the aloof charm and lap warming efforts of a furry feline? Either way, if animals of any kind make you melt and say "Awww" (except geese, they're as annoying as hell), then THIS is the Countdown for you, as the lads rank the very best films which focus on animals! Despite the heart-warming topic, this one gets a bit rough, folks, as at least one host loses their sh*t during this one, and both have some serious selection regret before the end of the show! 

There's also a review of the latest MCU film, Ant-Man and the Wasp, and it's fair to say the guys have very different reactions to what Marvel has served up this time around.

Plus there's plenty more Virtual Wayne covering all your Soundboard needs as The Countdown continues ...

This week, it's the return of a fan favourite Ep, the Top 10 Last 10! Paul and Wayne mini-review ten films they've each recently seen (but yet to speak about on the show), ordering from worst to best, and letting you know when they cross the line from trash to recommended. Which film does Paul believe is by far the worst of the year so far? Which film does Wayne love more than some of what Paul considers to be the year's best? And how many new Soundboard drops will Paul hit Wayne with?

Find out the answers to all of these questions and more as The Countdown continues ...

Most have questioned it; many have doubted it would ever happen. But it is now official: Television is BACK on the Countdown!

This week Paul and Wayne honour the pledge of another Number One Patron and exceptional all round person, Sally Vaughan, in giving their Top 10 TV Shows Which Should Get the Movie Treatment. Be it a sequel or reboot, the guys list their favourite shows which they'd love to see on the big screen and explain how they'd make the transition. Things start our innocuoulsy enough, but it's only a matter of time before choices cause incredulity, inflammatory remarks and temporary insanity - and not just in Paul. Ohhhh!

The lads also find time to squeeze in a review of Sicario: Day of the Soldado, which opened to very little fanfare or buzz this last week. Does it hold up to the original? Or is it a pale imitator?

Hunker down for some snide banter, sputtering objections and utterly needless soundboard drops (Edit: Wayne wrote that bit) as the Countdown Continues!

It's battle royale time, folks! This week Paul and Wayne go head to head with Kade and Troy from the kick-ass Comic Confidential podcast, counting down each team's top ten Pop Culture Defining films!  

Once again, Paul and Wayne can't agree on what the damn list should really be, because Wayne took the brief literally and everyone else on the planet got it wrong (Paul and the rest of the planet have a different view on this.) But it's still a hell of a tournament between two podcasting juggernauts, with some big calls, bigger laughs, and even a discussion about a real life Fight Club that one of the hosts participated in - which, let's face it, is reason enough alone to listen. And that's not even taking into account Paul going full-Negatron on Jurassic World: Fallen Rectum in the main review.

 
Who will triumph with the superior list? The pop-culture "experts" (aka villains!) Comic Confidential? Or the hometown heroic underdogs, the Countdown? Only you can decide!
 
For all your pop culture, in-fighting and inappropriate joke needs, keep it right here on The Countdown!

Join the fellers for a round of countdowning aimed squarely at the sphincter, as Wayne kicks and screams his way through Hereditary (aka a damn fine horror film)! Delight in Paul's mirth at watching Wayne squeal like a little whiny-ass wuss, then nod/curse along as the fellers count down their top ten scariest scenes ever put to film.

Will Wayne sack up and out himself through the horror movie wringer to produce a good list? Or is this another case of squealing man-child fumbles the ball? Find out as The Countdown continues ...

The Millennium Falcon. The DeLorean. The Batmobile. Just some of the most iconic movie vehicles to have ever graced the big screen. But which vehicle reigns supreme? That's what the boys aim to answer this week as they get up in each other's grill, while leaning on their air horns and trying to break the fastest quarter-mile record. (And expect Wayne to mention mounted cannons A LOT.)

There's also time for an in-depth review of Solo: A Star Wars Story, in which the guys break down why it has disappointed so many Star Wars fans the world over. Who hates the new droid?

Seriously, who doesn't love action comedies? They make you laugh, they require no brain power, and then some sh#t blows up. Entertainment!

This week, Paul and Wayne dive slow-mo through the air firing guns and quipping at each other as they count down their top ten action comedies! Because, y'know, Action comedies are awesome.

But that''s after they take on the Merc With The Mouth with their massively conflicting takes on Deadpool 2!! One of 'em dug it, the other not so much. (Editor's note: I didn't hate it, you tool.

This week in honour of Wayne's newly installed cybernetic hip, the boys countdown the Top 10 Cyborg Films! Not surprisingly, they spend half the time arguing about what films should and should not qualify.

But before that they review The Karate Kid as directed by patron Warren Leo (thanks Warren!) and jump off that to mini-review the first episode of the brand new follow up series, Cobra Kai.

Which means TV is STILL a thing on the show! Sort of. Maybe. Oh okay, a bit.

Twenty picks! Four Hosts! Two Lists! One screeching brown guy! And a whole new connotative meaning to the word "spasm" ...

In the final Wayneless Episode (Virtual Wayne not withstanding), Paul is joined by two good friends from https://www.podfixnetwork.com/ Namely, Fuzzy Dan from the Who Spiked The Puns podcast at http://whospikedthepuns.com/ and Dudi Deutrom from Shaken Not Nerd at https://omny.fm/shows/shaken-not-nerd

To kick things off Fuzzy, Dudi and Paul review the newest Dwayne Johnson "blockbuster", Rampage, which re-teams the star with the director of San Andreas. Two of the hosts go a little savage on the film, while the third defends it grimly as "popcorn" entertainment.

Then it's time to see just how often the hosts between them can "Pull a Dudi" (which is basically when you haven't seen a film which everyone would expect you have. ie. nowhere near as rude as you might have initially thought) as the guys countdown their Top 10 Film Antiheroes. Who has trouble sticking to film as a medium? Who righteously loves it when someone else hasn't seen one of their entries? And who tries to shoehorn in reference to a film not yet made? (Protip: The answer to all of these questions is Dudi.)

Please thank Dan and Dudi for filling in for Wayne by checking out their excellent shows, and tell 'em The Countdown sent you!

Time Stamps:

Recount: 2:32 – 8:25 Rampage NON-SPOILER Review: 9:12 – 17:18 Rampage One SPOILER-FILLED Discussion: 17:18 – 29:58 Top 10 Film Antiheroes: 30:59 – 1:28:40 Listener Feedback: 1:28:40 – 1:39:33

This week, Paul invites two southern gentlemen in the form of Wes from the Via VHS podcast and John from the Now in Technicolor podcast to guest on the show. Given they hail from North Carolina and Tennessee respectively, it was agreed there could be no finer Countdown than the Top 10 Films of the American South!

Of course, defining what is the American South becomes an issue as even the Americans can't quite agree, before Disney gets lauded and criticised for how it behaved in the 1940s, Paul loses all credibility for launching into a tirade against Forrest Gump, and one of the hosts pulls a great big honking surprise out of his very deep bag for his number one #MenCanLikeChickFlicksToo

All this and the guys review the new film John Krasinski, the very well received A Quiet Place. Which of the hosts seems a bit nonplussed by all the fuss? You might be surprised ...

Please thanks Wes and John for covering for Wayne (who will be back for Ep 161 #200ForWayne) by checking out their respective shows at https://viavhs.podiant.co/ and http://nowintechnicolorpod.podomatic.com/

This week Paul decides to have some fun by returning to an old topic which has long since disappeared from the server with the Top 10 Movie Fights (or, somewhat more generally, Conflicts). And in keeping with the spirit of the topic he decided to recruit two guest hosts who are renowned through the PodFix Network for their polar opposite views on most things movie-related. So, here's an appropriate intro to both "competitors" ...

In the red corner, out of New York State, weighing in at 140-odd episodes, it's the man who puts the hate into Haterade, the Count of Criticism, Epic Film Guy Nick Haskins!

And up against him in the blue corner, straight out of the 'burbs of Los Angeles, weighing in at 300 plus episodes, it's the Paragon of Positivity, the Emperor of Enthusiasm, So I Married a Movie Geek's Justin Winters!

These two fierce competitors are not about to let their opponent get the better of them as they offer their wildly disparate views on various films. And with not one but TWO Soundboards in play through this Ep, things are sure to get a touch out of hand ...

So, without any further delays, let's get ready to banter!

Please thanks Nick and Justin for covering for Wayne (who is doing well btw #200ForWayne) by checking out their respective shows at http://www.epicfilmguys.com/ and https://soimarriedamoviegeek.podbean.com/

With Wayne out of hospital and commencing his recovery, Paul is this week joined by Gidgit VonLaRue from The Retro Cinema podcast. Gidgit's show is focused on '80s films so there was no better person to have on to discuss the nostalgia heavy, Steven Spielberg blockbuster release, Ready Player One. Gidgit does a great job of channeling the positivity of Wayne, but does Paul jump on the same hype train? Or is #Negatron back with a vengeance?

Then Gidgit and Paul get down to unearthing some hidden gems from the '80s - films that most have forgotten, or were criminally underrated and not received the love they deserve. Both lists feature some incredibly deep cuts, so be prepared to add to your watchlist by the end of this one.

And in a Countdown first, The Soundboard this week features when a guest is also on the show! Though, fear not, The Soundboard apparently saves its worst trolling for Wayne ...

Please let Gidgit know how much you enjoyed her appearance on twitter @GidgitVonLaRue and check out her great show at http://theretrocinema.com/

Time Stamps:

Recount: 2:40 – 9:42 Ready Player One NON-SPOILER Review: 10:16 – 17:31 Ready Player One SPOILER-FILLED Discussion: 17:31 – 27:17 Top 10 Hidden Gems of the 80s: 28:08 – 1:09:49 Listener Feedback: 1:09:49 – 1:17:46

And just to sell the Retro Cinema's sweet, sweet Kool Aid a little harder, they're the first promo this week! Then there's a promo for an important charity event as organised by the show's bestest podcasting buds, the Epic Film Guys, with their Livestream for a Cure at https://cancerresearch.org/join-the-cause/fundraise/livestream-for-the-cure-20
