In this Episode, Wayne and Paul can barely contain themselves as they laugh, mock and (oddly) love on some of the most unintentionally funny films ever made. Which mid-90s action dud is the only film to hit both lists? How many Michael Bay films get mentioned? And whose list ends up being more offensive to film geeks of all ages?

But the laughs don't stop there. The boys also get stuck right into the eighth film in the Fast & Furious series, The Fate of the Furious. This money-making juggernaut has clearly pleased the masses, but was it meant to be funny? (Certainly the guy sitting next to Wayne in his screening did not think so.) And who wears the #Negatron crown when final grades are revealed?

Then Paul gets his Screeners on to review a couple of about to be released efforts: namely the locally produced Bad Girl (directed by Fin Edquist) and the extremely out there The Evil Within - a film fifteen years in the making that effectively killed its writer and director, Andrew Getty, before he could complete it.

With the "Golden Age" of television well and truly here, Wayne and Paul this week invite Joe from the Quote Unquote Guilty podcast to determine what are are the greatest single episodes of TV of all time. Pilot, finale, or straight up middle of the season-eps are all in play as the guys break down what makes a truly amazing piece of television that stays with the viewer for years (and sometimes decades) to come.

There's also a bit of Check It Out involving the teaser trailers for The Last Jedi and the upcoming re-make of Stephen King's It.

In this bonus interview episode of The Countdown, Paul talks to Australian writer-director and VFX expert, Matt Drummond. Matt's second feature film, My Pet Dinosaur opens across Australia on April 22nd. He discusses moving from his Emmy award winning VFX work for television into making his own films and how he became "the dinosaur guy" in Hollywood. He also speaks about the 80s influence on the film and how fortunate he's been to tap into the neo-nostalgic surge in pop culture thanks to the success of Stranger Things.

Please help us thank Matt for his time by checking out the trailer for My Pet Dinosaur at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DGKgxNLnME and keep up with everything on the film @mypetdinomovie on Twitter.

Sharpen those graphite pencils, fire up your computers, and crack out the crayons as this week Paul and Wayne finally tackle one of the most requested Countdowns: the best animated films of all time! Such an occasion demands something special, so the boys asked The Expert aka Alejandro to return and lend his animation expertise to this week's show.

All three also review the "newly" released LEGO Batman movie - "newly" for Australia, anyway, as Village Roadshow made the d1ck decision to leave it some seven weeks to release this film here, while the rest of the world saw it back in February.

Does the Caped Crusader's efforts live up to all that was promised in The LEGO movie? Has Wayne seen enough animated films to make a list of 10? And how many of them will be Batman films? Find out the answers to all these questions and more - including whether Wayne rated the new Chips adaptation - as The Countdown continues ...

It's always interesting when the hosts of a list-based podcast start to bag out their own lists before even revealing them. Such is the case in this week's Ep as Paul and Wayne acknowledge they may have bitten off more they could chew in finding ten films the US remade better than the original foreign version.

And this is all off the back of reviewing the new version of Ghost in the Shell. Is Scarlett Johansson's casting as controversial as the internet would have everyone believe? Are the visuals (and not just Scar Jo's bodysuit) as impressive as the trailers would have most believe? And will anybody give two sh#ts by the end of the film? Tune in to find out, and rest assured that The Soundboard most definitely returns to continue tormenting Wayne ...
