In this week’s big episode, Paul and Wayne try their level best to talk about the positives of the newly released, big summer tent-pole sequel, Independence Day: Resurgence, but keep getting side-tracked by everything they found to be terrible. (Protip: There was sooo much suckage …)

Then in keeping with the sci-fi theme, the guys get busy counting down the best ten films featuring aliens in an essential role. Surprisingly, this ends up being one of the more even-tempered and agreeable Countdowns – at least until Wayne tries to shoe-horn some extremely dodgy films into his Honourable Mentions.

The boys also Re-Count a number of lists and bits of feedback from listeners covering the last couple of episodes, and recently missed segment Check It Out makes a return.

#PodernFamily promos spun in this episode are for Pat and Jason Have a Podcast @patandjason – check their Season 1 Finale episode to hear Paul weighing in with a submitted audio clip – and the great Moviesaurus Rex podcast @MRexPodcast. Hooch and Tom give their take on all things film in their highly amusing show, and plans are afoot to have them on The Countdown in future.

Then, of course, there's also a promo for the show's US brothers, Nick and Justin aka The Epic Film Guys. You might recall Nick covered for Wayne in his absence so go back to check out those episodes if you missed them (54-56). And then show the guys some love by rating, subscribing and reviewing this amazing show at https://itunes.apple.com/au/podcast/epic-film-guys-podcast/id1027239734?mt=2 and checking out the EFG’s website at http://epicfilmguys.podbean.com/ from where you can now also buy their sweet new T-shirts!

This week's MASSIVE topic is the best comedy series of all time! And as if sensing the chaos that was to come, Paul and Wayne invited those most excellent gentlemen, Gareth and Sam, from the Open All Powers Podcast to guest on the show.

You can therefore expect a show filled with MORE of everything that has you Countdowning every week. (Yes, that's now a word). More laughs, more nostalgic reminiscing, more left-field choices from Wayne, and more niggling-agro between your regular co-hosts. Gareth and Sam do a bang up job of being a part of the madness, and even have some very polite feedback about the show's theme tune for the boys to consider...

Please help us thank @openallpowers by listening to their show at www.openallpowers.weebly.com and heading on over to iTunes to rate and review them @ https://itunes.apple.com/au/podcast/open-all-powers-podcast/id964333927?mt=2

Much to Wayne's consternation and outright objection, the guys this week count down the best 10 horror films of all time. Yes, after losing the Oscars bet (see Episode 48 for the result), Wayne makes good on his pledge to go with a show chosen by Paul, and of course, this meant the show was always going to be about his beloved horror genre. Recognising this could be something of a problem, the boys therefore invited along another horror lover, Jarrod, to guest host the show.

The three start by reviewing new release The Conjuring 2, directed by local boy made good, James Wan. Then it's time to end Wayne's misery watching horror film after horror film as he offers a list which non-horror movie lovers might very well find something worthwhile on; while Paul and Jarrod bring the genre cred with their mix of old school and hardcore horror. And, to be fair, Wayne even manages to give a good account of himself - right up until he talks about Demon Knight (1995) as being "really scary"...

The first #PodernFamily promo spun in this episode is for The Rock Show with Gully and Joe @rockshowonline

On this week's show, Paul and Wayne call upon good friend and driving enthusiast Christian to assist them in counting down the best ever movie car chases. Of course, feathers get ruffled, Wayne makes some hard to believe calls, and other than with regard to a certain film featuring a couple of Not So Good Guys, Christian joins with Paul in making incredulous noises and being told to eat non-mentionable parts of Wayne's anatomy.

As if that's not enough, Wayne and Paul squeeze in a non-related review of the newly released sequel, Now You See Me 2, from director Jon M. Chu.

The first #PodernFamily promo spun in this episode is for the excellent Moviesaurus Rex podcast @MRexPodcast. Hooch and Tom give their take on all things film in their highly amusing show, and plans are afoot to have them on The Countdown in future.
