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

Countdown #378

 

This week, in a compact episode of the show, Paul and Wayne are pitching their podcast to the back of the theatre as they over-enunciate describing the top 10 scenery chewing performances.
 
This one is based on an idea from Nick Haskins of the Nikoli's Kitchen podcast, and the boys have a lot of fun trying to recapture just how over the top some of the performances they've chosen are. Both hosts have a go at an English accent on a couple of occasions (sorry), but regular listeners will be delighted to learn that Paul says "Joaquin" not once, not twice, but at least thrice in this episode.
 

Plus there's all the foul-language, Soundboard smashing and, as a bonus, Bryan Adams you could handle in one sub-hour podcast episode ... as The Countdown continues.

Lightyear review

Buzz Lightyear to the rescue!

 

Or is he?
 
Pixar are banking $200 million that their space ranger will come out on top, but does this film version of the character that inspired the second lead in the incredible Toy Story series do enough to justify itself? And does Buzz hold up without the aid of a sheriff, Bo-Peep, Rex, Mr Potato Head and the gang?
 
Wayne and Paul have opinions, but only one of them likes animated films and adores the Toy Story series, so are their surprises in store when their thoughts are revealed?
 
Find out as The Countdown continues ...

Moon Knight review

Here we go again. Another Disney+ Marvel series and most know that Paul in particular has had problems with what has been served up by Kevin Feige and co since Avengers: Infinity War faded from our screens.

 

So can an obscure Marvel character with Dissociative Identity Disorder perk his interest? Or is this another case of Disappointment City for Paul, paving the way for more of his hot takes?
 
And what about Wayne? He's the comic book character lover. Can he find enough to get behind? Or has he joined Paul on the "dark side" of the divide? (Sorry, wrong Disney cash cow).
 
Learn the answers to all these questions and more as The Countdown continues...

Countdown #376

 

The Show Vs Show format is back, as the Movie Reviews in 20 Qs guys - Sam and Matiu - join Wayne and Paul to countdown the Top 10 Most Arousing Film Scenes of all time.

 

So, dear listener, you have to ask yourself what could be more entertaining than four middle-aged, straight men discussing what got them hot under the collar when they were in their teens through to more recent years? The answer, of course, is how readily each embarrasses themselves in such a public forum, all in the desperate attempt to earn a laugh. 
 
Find out how who has a thing for fingers and goes phalanges to phalanges with he who has a thing for toes. Learn who leans fairly heavily toward same-sex scenes when two women are involved, and who constantly refers to slamming a$$es, but may not actually be referring to back door action when doing so.
 
Sadly. there were some major technical issues on the Australian end of this recording - the NZ end is immaculate (of course) - so please accept Paul and Wayne's apologies for this one not being up the usual standards of the show. Hopefully, there's enough here for you to enjoy regardless of that, as The Countdown continues ...
 

Oh and please thank Sam and Matiu for their time by listening to their awesome show!

Well, here we are with the latest (and supposedly last) film in the Jurassic saga, in which life - and Hollywood - found a way to reunite the stars of the first trilogy with those of the second. Of course, it always starts that way, but then comes the running and the screaming...

 

Wayne is a bit caught up in the run time of the film and could be heard muttering at one point, 'Must go faster." While Paul was focused on whether the producers were so preoccupied with whether they could make another huge-budgeted Jurassic Park film, that they never stopped to wonder whether they should.
 
Find out, then , if this one improves on the last one and is worth a trip to the cinemas, or whether is is one big pile of sh*t ... as The Countdown continues.

Countdown #375

 

Top level Patrons, The Lawlors, came up with this week's banging topic, and Wayne and Paul are only too happy to countdown the Top 10 Final Shots in Movie History.

 

Incredibly, the boys spend longest talking about a Stanley Tucci mid-90s flick than they do about any other film on their lists, but you can rest assured, dear listener, that all are quality choices which will have you scrambling for YouTube so you can see what they see.
 
And if you missed contributing to this week's topic in The Facebook Listener Community, don't worry, all will be explained here ...
 

Because it's all happening on another (smooth) balls to the wall episode ... as The Countdown continues!

Wayne has never been more excited emotionally, physically and sexually. Paul, meanwhile, is extremely dubious. Two very different reactions to T to the C and the original '80s classic, Top Gun, so how will the boys react to Maverick returning to the big screen? 

 

Find out whether Wayne's excitement isn't well and truly over before the 131 minute run time of this film is complete, and equally, whether Paul can maintain his extreme dubiousness ... as The Countdown continues ...

Countdown #374

 

This week, with thanks to top level Patron and all round legendary individual, Étienne Fillion-Sauve, the boys are counting down the best films released as part of the Criterion Collection.

 

Given the Criterion Collection is known as the cinephile's wet dream, with the films included being all about method acting and mood lighting and deep sub-text, Paul and Wayne were always going to struggle. But they decided to make it harder on themselves still, by dismissing the films they always talk about , thereby limiting themselves to those that might be somewhat novel for the long-term fans of the show. Something which is especially hard if - like Wayne - you've only seen 28 of the films within the Collection ...
 

How will it all shake out? And as a result of these lists, will the show never again have a cinephile listen to an episode? Find out as The Countdown continues ...

You know how it is, dear listener. Every once in a while you stumble across something so unexpectedly great that you can't believe it wasn't immediately on your radar the moment it dropped to a streaming service. So, instead, you tell your best mate about it and look forward to poring over the show in detail with that mate, because you know how much they're going to love it as well ...
 
Except then you your best mate tells you they pretty much hated it. Live in a public forum.
 
THIS is that podcast review episode.
