The 300th Episode Hullabaloo

It's the big 3-0-0 this week and the guys are celebrating by NOT doing a Countdown (whaaaat?!) and instead are bringing back a bunch of the early segments that used to make up the show for an encore performance. There's Check it Out, Tag Lines, Insane in the Memwayne, a killer Seagal Watch, and of course, some amazing Listener Community feedback in the form of the Pop 10. 

 

PLUS a brand new segment that the guys had a lot of trouble recording with a straight face AND a brand new Soundboard filled with the openers for the above segments we well as more than one sound drop that makes Wayne lose his sh*t ...

 

Will the show ever be the same? Find out in the last Episode for 2020 as The Countdown (probably) continues ...

Shock horror! It really must be the end of days, because Wayne made time in his hectic schedule to appear on the monthly bonus Ep! But then how could he not, when the topic is to react to all the big trailers (and some tidbits of news) that came out of Disney's recent Investors Day.
 
So the boys watch all the big trailers and give their gut reactions (listen to Paul struggle) while bantering about all that will (hopefully) be coming our way in 2021, either on Disney+ or in theatres.
 
It's the first indication from an entertainment perspective that there is something to look forward to in the not too distant future, so get on board as The Countdown to the end of 2020 draws to a close ...

It's the longest review of the year for one of the few positives which 2020 delivered the world, the second season of Disney's The Mandalorian!
 
The guys geek out HARD on this one as they touch on all eight episodes in the second season. Does this season match, surpass or fall short of the first? Will it be more fondly remembered than the recent sequel trilogy? And were the new additions to the cast warranted or too fan servicey?
 
Learn the answers to all these questions (and more!) as The Countdown continues ...

Countdown #299

 

It's time for another Top 10 Last 10, as the guys countdown 10 of the most recent films they've seen, ranking them from worst to best and mini-reviewing each along the way

 

Some of the films that are covered include Let Him Go, His House, Buddy Games, Love and Monsters, Possessor, Greenland and Honest Thief.
 
This one was intended as a big send off to the crapness that was 2020, and so it only seems appropriate that it contains perhaps the most Wayne moment that has ever Wayned. Will you ever tune in to the show again after this one, dear listener? Find out as The Countdown continues ...
 

P.S. To all who celebrate, Merry Christmas! And to those who don't, Happy Holidays!

 

P.P.S. As mentioned on the show, you can help Epic Film Guy Justin and his very ill puppy, Gus, here.

Swingers (1996) review

"This place is dead anyway."

 

It's classic review time on The Countdown as the boys reveal WAY too much about themselves in discussing Swingers, the classic dating comedy from writer Jon Faverau and director Doug Liman.
 
Spoilers throughout for this one then, baby, especially in terms of the guys being less than money in referencing their tragic dating histories.
 

Yes, it's time to learn why being an architect at 19 is just not possible, as The Countdown continues ...

Countdown #298

 

With the 300th Countdown rapidly approaching, the guys this week turned their attention to a light-hearted topic which they could have some fun with before getting all "serious" about the upcoming milestone. And so it was agreed some hilariously nonthreatening villains should be named, shamed and laughed at.

 

Who is it that can't get past a villain's bangs? Will Paul allow his love of 90s Sharon Stone to colour his view of her turn in Catwoman? And can Wayne this week successfully count from 10 to 1?
 

Learn the answers to all these questions, as well as find out what the guys are planning for their 300th Episode, as The Countdown continues ...

Mank review

It's Oscar preview time on The Countdown, as the guys review the closest thing they're likely to get to the upcoming Academy Awards with Mank. This David Fincher film was written by his late father some 30 years ago and tries to be period accurate in depicting Herman J Mankiewicz as he writes the screenplay to one of the most famous films of all time, Citizen Kane.
 
But is it any good, or is it a whole pile of Hollywood self-grandiosing w*nk?

Top 10 One-Hit Wonder Actors

Countdown #297

 

This week the guys are playing fast and loose with their lists as they countdown the Top 10 One-Hit Wonder Actors

 

Having agreed on no parameters, this one goes off the rails fairly quickly, especially when Wayne realises counting down to one is harder this week than most (and stick around until the end of the Ep to find out just how hard).
 
Plus, Wayne wins something for the very first time, Paul threatens to break into song, and both hosts agree the Stars Wars series has a lot to answer for in terms of killing careers.
 

Tune into all this and more, as The Countdown continues ...

The New Mutants review

Negative Nelly week on The Countdown continues as the boys take turns lambasting the pathetic excuse for a superhero and/or horror film, The New Mutants.

 

Who'd have thought obscure references to Spaceballs would be far more amusing than this film? Or that the guys would fondly remember Dark Phoenix or X-Men: Apocalypse, but that's where Paul and Wayne find themselves, as The Countdown sputters ... but continues ...

WORST 10 Superhero Movies

Countdown #296

 

The MCU has changed the way most of the world looks at the superhero genre, but it wasn't always plain sailing for the heroines and heroes out of Marvel and DC. In fact, for the longest time, a decent film featuring a superhero was the exception, not the norm.

 

So this week Paul and Wayne are putting the podcast blowtorch to the absolute dreck which found its way into our cinemas and onto our TV screens through the "wasteland decades" for comic book adaptations (aka pre 2008). Yes, it's time for another worst of episode in the form of the Worst 10 Superhero Movies ever made!
 
Can Wayne bring himself to put a Batman film on this list? And will Paul continue his one-man vendetta against Superman Returns?
 

Learn the answers to all these questions and more (as well as find out who won a Countdown Merch Pack in the most recent comp), as The Countdown continues ...
