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

It's no longer Halloween, so it's definitely not the horror season - but Wayne remains not so mysteriously MIA. So for this month's Bonus Ep of the show, Paul has again recruited Sam from the Movie Reviews in 20 Q's Podcast to countdown the Worst 10 Horror Films of the 2010s

Sam, as long term listeners will know, is a bona fide horror film fan, so he joins a somewhat sick sounding Paul to put the very worst horror films from the last decade on blast! The guys keep it to films that were either cinematically released or had a big enough budget to be of that calibre, so there's no picking on the small-fry indie filmmakers of the world here. No, these are the absolute worst of the worst; the films that not only failed to scare, but also fell short of being entertaining in any way beyond unintentionally despite the big name producers behind them.

Why not check out Sam and his fantastic show by way of thanks at https://mritqs.podbean.com/ and then kick it back here as The Countdown continues ...

Top 10 Last 10

This week the lads are cleaning up what was left over from last year with mini-reviews of ten films each in their semi-regular Top 10 Last 10 show. This is the Ep where the guys pull together ten of their most recently watched films that they haven't spoken about on the podcast (well, Paul understand this qualifier; Wayne has more trouble with it), that are not linked in any other way. And while you might think this one will therefore be all nice and easy-going, it's actually a landmark episode for several reasons.
 
For starters, Paul is ready to give a film he saw 5 stars! Then there's the fact that he recommends EVERY film on his list. And finally, Wayne actually bothered to watch Parasite. Does he rate it? Or is it inexplicably below some low-brow comedy, causing the Soundboard to be unleashed and foul-mouthed tirades to follow?
 
Learn the answers to all these questions and more as The Countdown continues ...

Bad Boys For Life review

The first Bad Boys film in 17 years steams into theatres as a January release, and yet Wayne had it as one of his most anticipated films of the year! Doe he come to rue looking forward to Mike Lowry and Marcus Burnett saddling up again? Or is it REALLY Bad Boys for LIFE as far as Wayne is concerned?
 
Oh and just how badly will Paul Negatron all over this film? (That's right, that word is now a verb too.)
 
The answers may surprise you, as The Countdown continues ...

The Top 10 Films of 2019

Well, here it is, dear listener, the culmination of the episodes shouting out the best and worst that 2019 had to offer. The boys have covered television and the worst films of the year, so now it's time to focus on the good. Nay, the GREAT! As Wayne and Paul this week countdown their very favourite films of 2019.
 
Now Paul has bee on record all year suggesting 2019 has eaten many bags of ass, so is he able to make a list of ten films or is he singing a different tune by the end of the Ep? And just how many "non-Paul" choices can his list manage? Wayne, meanwhile, does his usual thing with some very surprising choices, but does he find room for a horror film on his list? And can he love Seth Rogen any harder?
 
Find the answers to all these questions - and more! - as The Countdown continues ...

The Gentlemen review

Guy Ritchie returns to the genre that made him ... (well, Madonna's fashion accessory) ... the cockney gangster film! This time he brings Matthew McConaughey along for the ride, arms him with Charlie Hunnam, and has Hugh Grant and Colin Farrell occupy some very entertaining support roles. But is it all good enough to get near the hallowed ground occupied by Snatch and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels? And is there such a thing as too many uses of the C-word?

The Witcher review

Gamers have been eagerly awaiting Netflix's The Witcher to arrive, so they can watch Geralt of Rivia strut his stuff on the small screen, while Wayne was just frothing at the mouth to see Henry Cavill back in the saddle (ie half naked in the bath) ...

Man-crushes aside, the boys this week aim to determine if the new streaming series is any good and worth the eight plus hours of your time. Is this an intriguing establishing first season? Or is it needlessly complicated for non-gamers and too slow to make its point?

Find out as The Countdown continues into 2020!
