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

This week it's either a good time or a bad time at the El Royale as a battle line is drawn right through the middle of the hotel, with one side representing one host's view that it was a quality, suspenseful film, and the other representing the POV that it was a bag of very long winded-ass
 
And as if that wasn't enough, the boys then clash over who qualifies as a character actor in this week's countdown celebrating those actors and actresses who disappear into their roles or are so utterly believable in any supporting role they take on.
 
It's certainly a fiery one! And, surprisingly enough, it features far less talk about genitalia than usual (which is how you KNOW the lads got distracted by each other's ridiculous viewpoints!)

Have you ever shaken your head in dismay at what must go on behind the scenes in the big Hollywood studio boardrooms? Or perhaps you've rolled your eyes while sighing in disgust at the latest studio interference in what should have been a slam dunk of a film? Well Paul and Wayne certainly have and this week they're here to share their major gripes with you as they countdown their Worst 10 Hollywood Decisions. Bad casting, awful script choices, and horrendous choices of director all get a bollocking as the boys take no prisoners in going for the jugular of the Hollywood studio system. (And, of course, talk about balls and other bits of the human anatomy - just in case you were wondering ...)
 
Find out which studios, filmmakers and franchises cop it the worst, as The Countdown continues!

Strap yourself in, good listeners, because this is a classic Ep of The Countdown if ever there was one. The boys this week square off over the very best ACTION FILMS of the NEW MILLENNIUM! This is a topic near and dear to both their movie-loving hearts, so you can be sure the fireworks erupt amid the usual NSFW banter, insult-firing and jokes about a certain appendage associated only with the Y chromosome. 

Which is the best Mission: Impossible film? Should a Bad Boys film make the list? And how low is too low for Mad Mad: Fury Road? Find out on this all new Ep as The Countdown continues ...

Time Stamps:

Recount: 2:34 - 9:01

Top 10 Action Films of the New Millennium 9:01 - 1:00:45
