Grow out those 'fros, whip on your fave tan flares and join the boys as they this week check out Shane Black's latest offering, The Nice Guys. Do they get down and boogie with the film's groovy vibe or do they get burned by a bummer of a flick?

Then they get into one of the best countdowns yet as they list their favourite cult films, with Paul in particular, reveling in the less than mainstream subject matter. There's also a plethora of contributions to the show as this is a topic that many had to have their say on!

TWO major reviews this week as Wayne and Paul get busy at the cinema (no, not in that way!). First up, they talk the comedy sequel Bad Neighbours 2, once again directed by one of Wayne's faves, Nicholas Stoller. Then they review the latest in the X-Men universe, X-Men: Apocalypse, with Bryan Singer continuing in the director's chair. Find out which the guys liked better and did either one surpass expectations? BOTH reviews are SPOILER-FREE (discussing nothing more than what you see in the trailers)!

Then it's straight into one of the biggest count downs ever as Paul and Wayne talk the Top 10 action scenes of all time. Things are relatively harmonious until Wayne tries to shoe-horn in a film from less than a month ago, triggering Consternation Paul, that in turn brings out Go-For-My-Balls Wayne. Who will you agree with?!

A Rewind, Be Kind review of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (2010), a Cool for Cast with the guys offering their take on what the Ghostbusters reboot/remake could have been, and Paul providing a short review of the about to be released New Zealander comedy, Hunt for the Wilderpeople. And then for the main event, the boys call out their top (read: worst) 10 plot holes in film history, with everything from Michael Bay to animated classics getting a good bollocking.

Things get a little crazy on this week’s episode – but not before the guys check out the soon-to-be-released Bastille Day from director James Watkins in another SPOILER-FREE review (no, seriously, we kept it short and sweet so as not to ruin it for those of you interested in catching this Idris Elba vehicle).

Paul and Wayne then offer slightly different interpretations of the best duos in films, with Wayne going for odd couples and Paul listing the best buddies (though not necessarily cops) in films. Wayne maintains Paul went off brief; Paul argues that after 58 episodes he was about due to finally be the one to make up his own rules (just for a change). Whoever’s fault it was (Protip: Paul does write these show notes), there’s more than the usual eyebrow-raising, head-shaking and consternation at one another’s choices, with Wayne in particular taking his “odd couple” list further than ever should have been discussed.

Promos spun in this episode are for the awesomely titled Geek Yogurt Podcast @YogurtPodcast and for the always entertaining Three is Comedy Podcast @ThreeIsComedy and http://threeiscomedy.podbean.com/

After a month cavorting through the U. S. of A. Wayne is back! And just in time to review the latest summer blockbuster, Captain America: Civil War. The guys were lucky enough to catch an advanced screening and in recognising most have yet to see the film, have kept this review entirely SPOILER FREE. That's right, one and all can safely listen, knowing that nothing beyond what is shown in the trailers is discussed. And yet, this review contains a verifiable Countdown first! Hit "Play" to find out exactly what has never before happened during a Countdown review. Wayne also reports on his experience at the recent Tribeca Film Festival, which includes naming the celebrities he spotted or got to observe in a Q&A he attended. Then there is this week's countdown which names and celebrates the best ever film trilogies! Of course, the niggling aggro banter is back, but things all end nicely as the guys - for once - agree on their number one picks. The two promos spun in the episode are for the wonderfully entertaining and informative Classy Little Podcast @ classylittlepodcast.com and for our great friends and fantastic podcasters, The Epic Film Guys. Nick, of course, covered for Wayne in his absence so go back to check out those episodes.
