The Millennium Falcon. The DeLorean. The Batmobile. Just some of the most iconic movie vehicles to have ever graced the big screen. But which vehicle reigns supreme? That's what the boys aim to answer this week as they get up in each other's grill, while leaning on their air horns and trying to break the fastest quarter-mile record. (And expect Wayne to mention mounted cannons A LOT.)

There's also time for an in-depth review of Solo: A Star Wars Story, in which the guys break down why it has disappointed so many Star Wars fans the world over. Who hates the new droid? Who cannot believe how dumb Han Solo is? And who, inexplicably, cannot get on board with Thandie Netwon in ANYTHING?

Seriously, who doesn't love action comedies? They make you laugh, they require no brain power, and then some sh#t blows up. Entertainment!

This week, Paul and Wayne dive slow-mo through the air firing guns and quipping at each other as they count down their top ten action comedies! Because, y'know, Action comedies are awesome.

But that''s after they take on the Merc With The Mouth with their massively conflicting takes on Deadpool 2!! One of 'em dug it, the other not so much. (Editor's note: I didn't hate it, you tool. I just don't love it more than my second-born child like you seem to.) Which host will you agree with? Find out as the Countdown continues!

This week in honour of Wayne's newly installed cybernetic hip, the boys countdown the Top 10 Cyborg Films! Not surprisingly, they spend half the time arguing about what films should and should not qualify.

But before that they review The Karate Kid as directed by patron Warren Leo (thanks Warren!) and jump off that to mini-review the first episode of the brand new follow up series, Cobra Kai.

Which means TV is STILL a thing on the show! Sort of. Maybe. Oh okay, a bit.

Time Stamps:

Recount: 2:16 - 9:16 The Karate Kid SPOILER-FILLED review: 10:05 - 27:12 Cobra Kai Episode 1 SPOILER FILLED review: 27:12 - 35:26 Top 10 Cyborg Films: 36:19 - 1:06:25 Listener Feedback: 1:06:25 - 1:13:02

Hey folks, it's about to get REAL this week when Paul and Wayne face off with Kath and Carney from Sanspants Radio's Movie Maintenance Podcast to count down their Top Ten Disaster Films!

Things are slightly twister-y this week, because for the first time, Paul and Wayne have a COMBINED top ten list, which will go up against Kath and Carney's joint list! Who will prevail? The crusty-ass Countdown boys, or the fresh-faced, delightfully hilarious Movie Maintenance crew?

Twenty picks! Four Hosts! Two Lists! One screeching brown guy! And a whole new connotative meaning to the word "spasm" ...

Please thank Kath and Carney for coming on the show by checking out their awesome work at http://www.sanspantsradio.com/ You can also catch them LIVE in Melbourne at the goodbye recording of Movie Maintenance on May 18th.

The cackling brown man is back!

That's right, Wayne returns to geek out with Paul over the biggest film release of ALL TIME, Avengers: Infinity War! Does it live up to the hype? Should it have pulled $630 million in its opening weekend? Find out as Wayne also reveals whether he's still feeling "thor" after the operation, who his latest man-crush is, and offers an overdue apology for a previous massive mistake! Then the guys rank the top ten movies with a marvel character in it! (Which is to say, not just the MCU movies ...)
