Kiah chats about his long-time passion for making films, how he came to direct Wyrmwood, and the challenges inherent in making a film over a four-year period. He discusses forming his own production company, Guerilla Films, with his brother and co-writer, Tristan, and how they chose their next project to be a TV series continuing the Wyrmwood story. Kiah also talks through his Top 5 most influential films.

Christoper Nolan's critically acclaimed Dunkirk has arrived meaning the guys charged off to the cinema to see it. Well, Paul charged off; Wayne was dragged along not quite kicking and screaming. So is it any surprise that they had very different reactions to the film? Find out how different amid a barrage of bad language, incredulity, and the Soundboard being put to very good use! Then things get even more personal as the guys pit their lists of best ever directors against one another. And though there are some similarities, there are even more significant differences, leading to more (mostly) good-natured banter...

In this week's big Ep, Wayne and Paul review Edgar Wright's newest, Baby Driver, and determine whether a film so closely tied to music can work when it's not (quite) a musical. For once, the boys are largely in agreement, and the good will continues into The Countdown this week, as they each reveal their Top 10 Movie Song Moments. ie. The best moments in film that are made astoundingly amazing by the soundtrack that is playing over them.

Given Paul and Wayne have VERY different music tastes, you could be forgiven for thinking this one would have involved anger, cursing, and more incredulity than that associated with Wayne saying he still likes The Big Bang Theory. But as it happens, relations remain very positive throughout the Countdown, maybe even bordering on buoyant. (Though of course, things inevitably go pear-shaped for a few moments through Wayne's list, in particular.)

Then stick around until the end of the Ep as next Apple Podcast review incentive is revealed because it's an absolute doozy which has Wayne sweating buckets ...

Paul and Wayne this week shoot their webs over everything to do with the newest film in the MCU, Spider-Man: Homecoming, directed by the previously unheralded Jon Watts. They answer all the important questions during their review, including is there too much Tony Stark? Does Michael Keaton rank up there as one of the best MCU villains? And does anybody NOT want a "Karen" for themselves?

Then the guys serve up some cold assed dishes as they talk the best revenge films of all time. Given the subject matter, things are refreshingly polite through most of the Ep, though Wayne (of course) makes room for one controversial choice, and Paul (of course) mocks him with the help of the much-loved and always on-point Soundboard.

The VERSUS format is back this week as Paul and Wayne decide once and for all, definitely, no further discussion needed, which era spawned the best action films, the 1980s or the 1990s. Both hosts have their preference, but their can be only one, so someone has to leave disappointed, which is predictably hilarious to the other host.

On top of that, the boys check out the latest news and disagree vehemently about how much Tony Stark should be in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
