Top 10 Movie Bad Girls

This week the boys get very distracted with various parts of the human anatomy as they countdown their Top 10 Movie Bad Girls! Female villains, antagonists, criminals and ne'er-do-wells are all fair game as the guys come to realise there's a fair amount of adolescent nostalgia in their lists (and all the obvious jokes you would expect once that drain is circled). Wayne is taking his entire sexual education from his number one film, while Paul knows wayyy too much about one of the entrants on Wayne's list.
 
In short, this was a heck of a fun one to record. So kick back, relax, and prepare to listen to far too many not-so-subtle sexual innuendos, as The Countdown continues ...

Toy Story 4 review

Paul & Wayne were privileged to attend an advanced screening of the big new Disney and Pixar sequel, Toy Story 4, and rather than sit on it for a week and a half, they've decided to give you the EARLY word on whether you should herd the family to the theatre to see it on the big screen!

Can Pixar do it again, 9 years after Toy Story 3 was so well received? Or has time not been so kind to Woody, Buzz and the crew. Paul is a long-time fan of the series (hell, his daughters cats are named after Woody and Jessie), while Wayne is less into these kinds of films. So find out whether both of the guys were won over in a very spoiler free review for the first half of the show!

Time Stamps:

Toy Story 4 NON-SPOILER Review: 0:00 - 12:22

Toy Story 4 SPOILER-FILLED Thoughts: 12:22 - 21:23

Dark Phoenix review

The final film in the Fox X-Men franchise is here, and Paul and Wayne weigh in on whether it's a worthy send off to characters who have been with us for 19 years ... or whether it's a shoddy second attempt at what Simon Kinberg and Fox got so very wrong with X-Men: The Last Stand all the way back in 2006.

Oh and apologies for Paul's-virus infected voice!

Top 10 Movie Man Crushes

Much like 90s one-hit wonder Coolio with his gangsters, this week is Wayne's version of paradise as the guys countdown their Top 10 Movie Man Crushes! Amid many, many obvious jokes, the boys give credit to the hunkiest of Hollywood leading men, while also paying attention to those whose deeper qualities are more readily apparent
 
This really is a fun episode with a lot of laughs to be had! And if you've ever wondered who Wayne covets the most out of all the men he has ever dreamily complimented throughout the history of the show, this Ep will finally provide you with the answer to that burning question. That, and a whole lot more, as The Countdown continues ...

Top 10 Last 10

For this 20th edition of the popular Top 10 Last 10 format - essentially the guys mini-reviewing the last ten films they've seen and not spoken about on the show - Paul curates his list from the IMDB Top 250 films he had yet to see until recently, while Wayne is just happy to have managed to see 10 new films. Then there's some big news regarding the Movie Watching Challenge, Wayne fluffing his cues, and more of the risque "humour" you're used to as The Countdown continues ...

Aladdin review

This week the boys open up a can of whupp-ass on Disney's latest (but not last) live-action adaptation of a beloved animated property, Aladdin. This one is directed by Guy Ritchie and stars a whole bunch of nobodies and Will Smith, but is it any good? Well, the lads have decided not to bother with a non-spoiler section for this review, so you can probably take your cue from that ...

Time Stamps:

Aladdin SPOILER-FILLED review 0:00 - 16:30

Final Thoughts including potential spoilers: 16:30 - 17:45
