BIG news this week, as Paul and Wayne welcome a NEW member of The Countdown, and one they hope will be a mainstay on the show!
More seriously, the guys each present a film for review this week. Wayne takes a look at Life and has some positive things to say about it (beyond insisting the Des'ree song make an appearance in the Ep), while Paul falls short - okay, just short - of going full #Negatron on Power Rangers.
Then drawing on the one common theme between the two films, the boys countdown the best End of the World Films, and though there are a few shaky moments early as parameters are defined (and then discarded, as Jef from Cadaver Cast mocked during the week), it all ends fairly harmoniously and not at all nihilistically.
#moviepodsquad promos played this week are for the great Super Movie Bros show @SuperMoviePod and our brother podcast in the US, the Epic Film Guys at https://epicfilmguys.podbean.com/ and on Twitter @EpicFilmGuys
