This week the boys are joined by Pod Fix Network brothers, Dan and Caleb from the Netflix 'N Swill show, to tackle an extremely controversial topic: The Top 10 Most Overrated Films! To say these lists ruffle a few feathers among the co-hosts would be a massive understatement, making for some very comic reactions and many hurt feelings.

As just a sampler of what to expect: Learn who has a thing against Stanley Kuberick; marvel as someone hates on Jurassic Park; shake your head in amazement as Donnie Darko gets a bollocking; and much, much more (seriously, Caleb's #1 will blow your mind) ...

The guys also review Steven Soderbergh's latest oddball heist movie, Logan Lucky, and opinions are equally divided on whether it is worth your time.

Time Stamps Recount: 4:05 - 7:30 Logan Lucky NON-spoiler Thoughts: 8:10 - 16:22 Logan Lucky SPOILER-Filled Review: 16:22 - 24:04 Top 10 Most Overrated Films: 24:53 - 1:30:51 Listener Feedback: 1:30:51 - 1:37:52

After the fireworks and hurt butts of last Episode, Paul and Wayne (mostly) agree to a ceasefire as they dedicate an Episode to the *ahem* king of modern day fiction, Stephen King. The boys kick things off by reviewing The Dark Tower, the 95 minute film from Sony Pictures which is meant to appease fans of a series of novels that collectively spans more than 4000 pages. Is it better than the critics would have you believe? Or do Wayne and Paul also tear the Tower a new one?

Then the guys get down to identifying the very best films adapted by works from Stephen King, and though Paul predictably has more horror films on his list than Wayne, regular listeners might be surprised by just how similar these two efforts are. You can tell Paul and Wayne share that surprise, since their discussions this week are generally even-tempered, not very foul-mouthed, and (somewhat shockingly) rational across the board. (Except for during the Recount when last week’s demons are again brought to the fore …)

This week things get a might testy as Paul suffers through a show all about his least favourite genre: Rom-coms! The boys review the well-received The Big Sick before counting down their Top 10 Romantic Comedies, and it's fair to say that things spiral out of control by the end of these lists. Wayne takes particular umbrage at some of Paul's choices, resulting in some short-tempered banter and a defensive use of The Soundboard - which doesn't help Wayne's overall disposition at all!

Time Stamps Recount: 2:10 - 6:50 The Big Sick NON-spoiler Thoughts: 7:25 - 14:55 The Big Sick SPOILER-Filled Review: 14:55 - 28:05 Top 10 Rom-Coms: 28:53 - 1:15:35 Listener Feedback: 1:15:35 - 1:22:50

This week Wayne and Paul slip into some kick ass thigh high boots and strut their stuff with Deana Marie of the Twisted Philly podcast as they review the new Charlize Theron cold-war actioneer, Atomic Blonde! Deana then gets her hands well and truly dirty as she assists the guys to Countdown the most memorable death scenes of all time. So yes, spoilers abound in this Ep, but fear not, most of the choices are very common knowledge.

This week's MASSIVE Ep features not just a feature review for the hotly anticipated (by people other than Wayne and Paul) War for the Planet of the Apes, but two, that's right TWO Countdowns! The first is a mini-Countdown of the best trailers from San-Diego Comic Con in the boys' Check It Out segment, before the main review, the latest Top 10 Last 10.

Just how much monkeying around is there? And how many of the guys' selections ape one another's choices? Plus is there a third monkey-based pun that should have gone here? (Ahh, who cares, no-one reads these show notes anyway.) Find out all this and more - including whether Wayne finally smashes The Soundboard! - as The Countdown continues ...

Time Stamps Recount: 1:58 - 11:48 Check It Out: 11:48 - 24:10 War for the Planet of the Apes NON-spoiler Thoughts: 24:46 - 14:53 War for the Planet of the Apes SPOILER-Filled Review: 34:53 - 47:41 Top 10 Last 10: 49:47 - 1:36:45 Listener Feedback: 1:36:45 - 1:43:28
