TV & Film

A weekly comedic podcast in which two massive film buffs countdown a topic from 10-1 while throwing shade at the other’s list.

Episodes

Paul and Wayne were recently rocking out to Tenacious D and they were struck by a moment of inspiration while listening to the track Double Team  - a Countdown of their Top Ten Film Teams!
 
Join Paul and Wayne as they trade barbs over which teams on the big screen rocked the MOST. Paul's middle finger is extended at Wayne's choices. Wayne's left nut is sore after trying to jam it in Paul's nostril. And both hosts are still really surprised that people would ever consider having a "double team supreme" with Jack Black and KG ...
 
That's all on the back of their Mission: Impossible - Fallout review! Is this film as baller as all the reviews are suggesting? Is it worth seeing a second time at the cinema? And what would they do if The D kindly offered to turn them into a rotisserie chicken? The answer to ...some of these questions are all in this week's Countdown!

Ever screwed up your nose at the pure stank of a film that took itself too seriously? The Countdown boys sure have - and they're here to throw rocks at their top ten list of pretentious films! Seriously, these movies are the celluloid equivalent of adding #blessed to every stupid facebook post.
 
And this week in the new Show Vs Show format, the boys are going up against Joey and Markellus from the highly revered So Wizard Podcast to see which show has the best list! Which podcast will win? Only you can decide! 
 
And speaking of pretentiousness, you also get a side of The Equalizer 2 review! Can you guess how the fellers felt about it? (You're right.)
 
With a pinky in the air and a johnson in both hands, keep it right here on The Countdown for all your pompous-movie-bashing needs!

Do you like animals? Do you have a loyal canine who greets you at the door every day? Or maybe you prefer the aloof charm and lap warming efforts of a furry feline? Either way, if animals of any kind make you melt and say "Awww" (except geese, they're as annoying as hell), then THIS is the Countdown for you, as the lads rank the very best films which focus on animals! Despite the heart-warming topic, this one gets a bit rough, folks, as at least one host loses their sh*t during this one, and both have some serious selection regret before the end of the show! 

There's also a review of the latest MCU film, Ant-Man and the Wasp, and it's fair to say the guys have very different reactions to what Marvel has served up this time around.

Plus there's plenty more Virtual Wayne covering all your Soundboard needs as The Countdown continues ...

Recount: 2:29 - 8:56

This week, it's the return of a fan favourite Ep, the Top 10 Last 10! Paul and Wayne mini-review ten films they've each recently seen (but yet to speak about on the show), ordering from worst to best, and letting you know when they cross the line from trash to recommended. Which film does Paul believe is by far the worst of the year so far? Which film does Wayne love more than some of what Paul considers to be the year's best? And how many new Soundboard drops will Paul hit Wayne with?

Find out the answers to all of these questions and more as The Countdown continues ...

Most have questioned it; many have doubted it would ever happen. But it is now official: Television is BACK on the Countdown!

This week Paul and Wayne honour the pledge of another Number One Patron and exceptional all round person, Sally Vaughan, in giving their Top 10 TV Shows Which Should Get the Movie Treatment. Be it a sequel or reboot, the guys list their favourite shows which they'd love to see on the big screen and explain how they'd make the transition. Things start our innocuoulsy enough, but it's only a matter of time before choices cause incredulity, inflammatory remarks and temporary insanity - and not just in Paul. Ohhhh!

The lads also find time to squeeze in a review of Sicario: Day of the Soldado, which opened to very little fanfare or buzz this last week. Does it hold up to the original? Or is it a pale imitator?

Hunker down for some snide banter, sputtering objections and utterly needless soundboard drops (Edit: Wayne wrote that bit) as the Countdown Continues!

Time Stamps:

Recount: 2:41 – 6:38

Sicario: Day of the Soldado NON-SPOILER Review: 6:38 – 16:12

Sicario: Day of the Soldado SPOILER-FILLED Discussion: 16:12 – 23:45

Top 10 TV Shows That Should Get the Movie Treatment: 22:45 – 1:15:16
