In a special bite-sized Episode of The Countdown, Paul and Wayne this week sing the praises of their favourite films that run less than 90 minutes – the idea being these are their recommended quick hits that you can switch on and race through when you’re pushed for time. Only, as per usual, Wayne manages to go off brief and include a couple of films that run 90 minutes or more, arguing that … well, just hit play and enjoy rationalisation at a level you’ve never before heard!

In one of the funniest episodes yet, the boys this week welcome Toffa from the Masterdebaters podcast to assist in naming and shaming the most annoying characters in film! Things get decidedly heartfelt, sweary and salty as everybody lets loose on those individuals who managed to get under their skin and caused their bowels to clench in irritation.

Paul and Wayne also take 15 minutes to review the new xXx film with Vin Diesel cavorting about like someone half his age and Toni Collette managing to look severely unamused throughout proceedings.

Thank Toffa for guesting on the Ep by following him @_masterdebaters and checking out his hilarious show at masterdebaters.podbean.com

The boys this week want you to put ... the bunny ... back ... in the box.

You won’t? Well, Paul thinks you can probably eat a peach for hours, while Wayne wants to know how, in the name of Zeus’ butthole, you got out of your cell?

If one or all of those paraphrased quotes make any sense to you, you're listening to the right Episode of The Countdown, as this week Wayne and Paul focus on the career of Nicolas Cage!

They discuss a wide variety of Cage's films as they countdown his best and worst 5 films, and Wayne even sneaks in a mini-review of a little film from Cage's uncle called The Godfather (1972). There's also time for the guys to countdown their 5 most anticipated films for 2017.

That's right. THREE separate countdowns, TWO surprisingly agreeable hosts, and ONE amazing divisive actor. All this and more as the Countdown continues...

Strap on your throwing knives, sharpen your swords and check those long-range sights, because this week the guys settle into their first major film review of 2017 with the adaptation of the popular game, Assassin's Creed. Is it really as bad as the reviews are making out? Or does Aussie director Justin Kurzel make a better fist of it than the critics would have you believe? (Err, no. No he doesn't.)

That's just a precursor to the main event, though, because Paul and Wayne get into a couple of major disagreements counting their favourite assassin films. Who is correct and who is talking out of their rusty sheriff's badge? Only YOU can decide as The Countdown continues ...

Happy New Year Countdowners! To mark the latest complete orbit of our planet around the sun, the boys this week lured podcaster extraordinaire, talented voice over artist and actor, John Rocha, out of hiatus from the Top 10 show, to assist in ranking this year's best 10 films. John brings a certain level of class and depth to the show which the Countdown sorely needs - as evidenced by the typical crass and disrespectful attitude Wayne and Paul adopt toward each other as they battle for the win in the final segment of Tag Lines for this season.

Then there's the usual Recount, listener nominations for the top films of the year and a brief tribute to the late, great Carrie Fisher.

It is most certainly the biggest episode of the Countdown yet, so please thank John for coming on board by following him on Twitter @TheRochaSays, listening to The Cine-Files @ http://thecine-files.podomatic.com/ or chasing up Super Animation Gametime @ http://geekandsundry.com/
