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

Note: There are spoilers throughout for the pilot Ep only.

 

This week the boys are checking out the pilot episode of the much lauded new HBO series, Lovecraft Country. This is drama-mystery-horror-pulp mash-up is very much outside Wayne's wheelhouse, but is right smack bang in the middle of Paul's, so will their reactions be that predictable? Also: How does the mash up between important social issues and pulpy horror hold up? And who gets completely caught up in whether there are spaceships in the show?

 

Find the answer to all these questions and more as The Countdown continues ...

Top 10 Movie D-Bags

Countdown #282
 
D-bags. They're everywhere. And cinema is replete with them. So Paul and Wayne this week take it upon themselves to call out their very best (or is that worst?) cinematic examples of these self-centered, slick and smarmy a-holes who will stop at almost nothing to achieve their - usually nefarious - ends. And it's all with thanks to listener Jonathan Kidd for the suggestion.
 
Also, along the way, one of the hosts might just have a D-bag moment of his own ...
 
Find out who gets crowned the greatest D-bag in cinemas history The Countdown continues!

Tenet NO SPOILERS Review

The boys were extremely fortunate to attend one of the earliest media screenings in the world for the new blockbuster from Christoper Nolan, and now the embargo has lifted they're here to talk about the film with a 100% GUARANTEE OF NO SPOILERS being mentioned. They don't even state the gimmick of the film and discuss no plot beyond the one-sentence synopsis at the top of review.

But they couldn't contain their thoughts about the $200 million blockbuster, so here is an immediate reaction/review in which they do manage to answer the following questions:

1) Is Tenet going to resuscitate the ailing movie theatre industry?

2) Will they each see the film a second time at the theatre? and

3) Who is still struggling to understand what they saw?

Tune in hear the answer all these questions and to determine whether you should (safely) venture out to see Tenet when it opens near you, as The Countdown continues...

Die Hard (1988) review

The classic review is back! And it's for Die Hard! Die Motherflippin' Hard! Wayne and Paul are so excited one of them claims this is the greatest action film ever made, but both love Bruce Willis as the everyday hero who saves a skyscraper full of innocent people a group of terrorists headed by the incredible Alan Rickman.

They're less a fan of Bonnie Bedelia's hair though ...

Countdown #280

 

This week is the yang to last week's ying as the boys countdown the films which FAILED to fool them. That is, plot twists they called early on or plot developments that seemed obvious to them all along. Along the way, they manage to call out marketing companies who cut trailers together, and suggest superhero films should stop fake-killing their main characters.

 

PLUS the guys give away another Countdown prize pack, and there's a new grab on the Soundboard which Paul plays to good (and repetitive) effect!
 

All this and whole lot more as The Countdown continues ...

Unhinged review

It's the first decently budgeted film released back into theatres in some territories around the world, and Western Australia is one of those territories. As such, the boys jetted out to the cinema and saw Russy Crowe's new thriller, Unhinged.
 
Is Crowe now the biggest star in Hollywood again? Wayne certainly thinks so, but maybe not for the reasons you think. While Paul is perplexed by the overall message the film is putting out there.
 
But is this one worth a trip to see on the big screen? Find out, as The Countdown continues ...

Has a movie ever fooled you? That is, taken you completely by surprise while pulling the rug out from under you, and left you nodding appreciatively and thinking "Well, played, Movie, well played"? Well, Wayne and Paul are very familiar with such a reaction and this week they've decided to countdown the very best instances of when films completely took them for a ride ...

 

Who still can't believe Tim Robbins was such a fiend in Arlington Road? Which of the lads somehow failed to piece together who the little brother was in The Accountant? And who was more blown away by M Night Shyamalan's first (and greatest) twist ending?

 

Learn the answers to all these questions and more as The Countdown continues ...

Con Air (1997) review

Warning: There are Spoilers throughout!
 
This week the lads are going back to when the mullets were long, the accents were wavering, and the fashion sense was non-existent (sandals and socks with a suit, wtf?). Yes, that's right, they're heading to 1997 and the Nicolas Cage action-thriller, Con Air.
 
Paul has long defended this action cheese fest as his favourite Cage film of all time, but has this podcasting gig soured his sense of fun? And will Wayne fall into line or demand that Paul, "Put the bunny back in the box"?
