In this week's Ep, Wayne gets his way and the boys review the latest Tom Cruise vehicle, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. Paul naturally wondered if anyone else in the entire world wanted to see more of Jack Reacher, prompting this week's Countdown of Sequels No-One Wanted (Except Maybe Wayne).

And though both guys agree on how "good" Jack Reacher 2 is, things get off to a rocky start during the Countdown with Wayne going straight for the jugular and Paul predictably biting ...

BTW this Ep was recorded straight after the latest crossover with the @EpicFilmGuys for their 69th episode all about John Carpenter. (Which means Wayne is impatient and Paul has had an extra drink ... or three.) So check this fantastic show out at https://itunes.apple.com/au/podcast/epic-film-guys-podcast/id1027239734?mt=2

Other #PodernFamily promos played this week are for those salty Brits @_masterdebaters and for great film podcast Pat and Jason Binge Movies @patandjason. Paul also guests on their Ep 19 this week, talking the worst Asian horror remakes!

Lock your doors, bolt your windows, and let Paul and Wayne be your comforting companions as they this week go for the kill in their differing opinions of The Girl on the Train.

The conversation then gets darker still as the guys Countdown their best ten serial killer films. Wayne throws his usual dodgy pick into the mix, but who will be left feeling list envy by the end of the end of the Ep?

The news-based segment Check it Out makes a return, and then the guys unveil a brand new segment - complete with an opener that is sure to offend!

During said new segment, Paul talks about the 3rd annual 2016 Sci-Fi Film Festival being held in Sydney between October 19th and 23rd. Find all you need to know about this sweet sounding festival at http://scififilmfestival.com/

Ahoy, me hearties! Batten down the hatches because this week's Episode allows you to shiver your timbers while getting three sheets to the wind, as Wayne and Paul set sail with a Countdown of the best films set on or around the high seas. They also like the cut of Alejandro's jib, and so invite him to return as guest host lest he be mistaken for a landlubber!

The guys also review the newest collaboration between Peter Berg and Mark Whalberg, Deepwater Horizon, with it being fair to say there ia almost a mutiny in the ranks when Negatron returns from being marooned on a desert island ...

In a special bonus episode of The Countdown, Paul and Wayne interview the creators of TV special Top Knot Detective, Aaron McCann and Dominic Pearce.

The show is batsh1t insane and almost impossible to describe, but here goes: It's essentially a mockumentary about a Japanese TV show that attained cult status in the 90s in Australia (even though it never really existed) which had all kinds of controversy happening behind the scenes as it was filmed. Interweaving scenes from the TV show with interviews with the actors and crew today, TKD is a love letter to both Japanense television and what SBS used to be before the advent of pay TV and streaming options.

Beyond TKD, Aaron and Dominic talk about their careers working together, shooting other things for the SBS network that didn't see a proper release, getting involved in a Twitter beef with Ariana Grande and the band Safia, and list their ten major influences on TKD.

Please thank Aaron and Dominic by watching Top Knot Detective on the SBS on Demand App until Oct 11th 2016, follow them on Twitter @TKDetective or on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/topknotdetective/

And watch Dom's music video that sparked the Twitter beef at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arygMEQ-H1U

This week Paul and Wayne get down with Denzel Washington, as they celebrate this incredible actor and his enduring career.

Well that was the plan, anyway. Things start to go awry when of the guys HATES on Antoine Fuqua's remake of The Magnificent Seven. Of course, the other host finds a great deal to enjoy in this classic tale, leading to quite the vehement argument.

As if that's not bad enough, Wayne then goes completely off the rails as he starts his countdown of the best Denzel Washington films with one of the most dubious choices in the show's history. To Paul's abject horror, he then changes his list on the fly, throwing the integrity of the Countdown into complete disarray! Can Paul accept this ridiculous jettisoning of the rules? Or has Wayne doomed the show to all manner of dodgy, on-the-fly moves forever more? Find out as The Countdown continues ...
