This week in an ALL NEW type of Countdown, Paul and Wayne ask great supporter of the show, Jarrod, to return to the guest host seat, only partially because he was the one who came up with this show idea! Essentially the VERSUS concept involves the guys once and for all, definitively deciding who wins some of the great comparative rivalries in Hollywood. And they're starting with one of the biggest: Arnold Schwarzenegger vs Sylvester Stallone to determine who is the bigger star!

Utilising a "revolutionary" scoring system, the guys get serious with the insults (amid much laughter and incredulity) as Wayne declares himself #TeamSly, while Jarrod and Paul may ever so slightly fall onto the side of #TeamArnie. At the end of the day, a winner is crowned, listener feedback is heard and a new type of Countdown is born.

Oh and Paul and Wayne give a short review of the critically panned Baywatch already out in the States and opening across the rest of the world this week. But be warned, #Negatron is back and on the warpath ...

This week Wayne and Paul momentarily forget themselves and kick off the Ep with a serious review of Alien Covenant. Has Ridley Scott solved the problems with Prometheus or is it more of the same idiotic characters and Sir Scott loving himself just a bit too much?

Then the boys gush praise all over John Wick Chapter 2, leading to a fun discussion of the best shoot out scenes ever put to film. With Wayne preferring contemporary scenes, it falls to Paul to honour the classics, resulting in more than one name-calling session, multiple screeches of derision, and a crapload of laughs, as the Countdown continues ...

This week the guys decide to get all touchy-feely in maybe too literal a sense as they were "convinced" (read: brainwashed) by Justin from the So I Married a Movie Geek podcast @MovieGeekCast to countdown their Top 10 Sexiest ever movie scenes. Of course, Justin was only too happy to put himself through the same exercise, so sexiness gets redefined as three adult males talk about those special scenes which were "meaningful" too them, mostly in their youth. (Aside from Wayne's #1 which he apparently watched last week.)

How many masturbation euphemisms can the guys come up with? At what point will Wayne stop making mention of being too creepy? And which Hollywood starlet has Justin rubbed shoulders with and managed to put out by mentioning her sexiest role to her?

All this AND a Rewind Be Kind review of Paul Verhoeven's critically lambasted and ultra-sleazy Showgirls (1995) on Ep 111 of The Countdown, recorded coincidentally on Mother's Day in Australia and the US. Which of course means this one is for all the Mums/Moms out there...

This week Wayne had a card up his sleeve but no rabbit in his hat as he got to pick the Countdown and somehow came up with this doozy which had both hosts scratching their head before recording, and taking pot shots at the other's list once the mics were turned on. There's too much craziness going on to give an accurate summary, so here's a few highlights:

- Season 2 of Tag Lines officially kicks off - Wayne attempting to deny all fantasy movies as being magic - Paul trying to sing Devil Inside by INXS - Wonder Woman's armpits - Steven Seagal soiling himself - And Wayne calling out Mr Seagal to come "Taekwando my a$$"...

In this edition of the Bonus Ep series, Paul & Wayne chat with filmmaker gough (he doesn't do capitals) who is credited as the first legally blind individual to write, produce, edit, direct and star in a feature film. This remarkable guy talks about how he got his start, what drives him to succeed, being a writer and audio book producer as well as a filmmaker, and his five most influential films.

Please check out gough and his fantastic body of work on his website http://beernutsproductions.com/ and give his new twitter feed a follow @Beernuts_gough

96 minutes. 20 mini-reviews. Two feuding cohosts!

Unbelievably this week, some studio big wig decided to release one of the year's most massive sequels, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, early in Australia! So the boys got along to see it and offer their SPOILER FREE review of James Gunn's latest superhero effort between 9:00 and 22:30.

Then the guys get into an overdue Top 10 Last 10 as they each review the last 10 films they've seen from worst to best - which include all the flicks they pledged to watch in return for iTunes reviews left for the show. So Wayne FINALLY reviews The Godfather Parts 2 and 3, while Paul checks out his first ever musical for the show, La La Land, as well as the indie charmer Sing Street from last year. Things are mostly nice enough until proceedings taken a sudden turn for the ridiculous with the top half of Wayne's list. And wait until you hear what he ranks #1 and #2 respectively. (Hint: Prepare to be outraged!)
