High Ground review

With COVID-19 still running rampant through the US and pushing back (again!) the release of most films, the boys have taken on the challenge of reviewing some smaller Aussie films, which they hope deserve a bit of exposure

 

The first of those is High Ground, which has just hit Australian cinemas. This period-set, Australian western, revenge-thriller has a lot to say about race relations in its home country and definitely provides food for thought. So how will Wayne handle such heavy content? And can Paul get past Wayne continually referring to Simon Baker as "The Mentalist"?
 
Learn the answers to all these questions and more, as The Countdown continues ...

The Bonus series of Favourite Films of ALL Time series continues, as he is this time joined by a man of very similar tastes (and age!), Joey from the So Wizard Podcast.

But could it be that Joey is able to out-Paul Paul when it comes to obscure genre films? Is he more like to include a Martin Scorsese film or a Jean-Claude Van Damme movie? And does Paul have anything other than horror films on his list as they reach the half way point of this incredibly subjective countdown?

Top 10 TV Pilots

Countdown #304

This week the guys are guided by top level Patron, Cy Wewzow, with his choice for an episode: the Top 10 TV Pilots of all time!
 
The brief is as straight forward as they come, so surely even Wayne can keep to it this time around? But how many times will he call a "show" a "movie", and does he drag Paul into his world of goofs? Equally as importantly, how will there be an Ep when Paul has barely seen any of Wayne's (early) choices?

WandaVision review

Warning: Mild Spoilers (and speculation) throughout.

 

Marvel have kicked off the fourth Phase of the MCU with what many are calling their most ambitious project yet: WandaVision, a nine episode Disney+ television series. So the boys decided to weigh in with their thoughts about the first two episodes, especially after hearing and seeing near universal acclaim from critics and fans alike.
 
But will Wayne and Paul feel the same way? Are they willing to risk the ire of the MCU fans to critique something from Marvel? Or are they intrigued enough to want a whole lot more?

The Top 10 Films of 2020

Countdown #303

 

This is it! The big one. The episode first time listeners will often download to trial the show. But does that fact change anything for the boys when they reveal their Top 10 Films of the rough year that was 2020? Not likely. They're still arguing about whether Extraction or The Old Guard is the better film; Paul is still stacking his list with horror films; and Wayne is once again breaking the rules by including a film he already had on his Top 10 Films of 2019 list!

 

But as the guys say throughout the Episode, that's #2020 for you and Wayne spent half the year re-watching another film on his list, and so, apparently, didn't have enough good films to fill 10 spots *shakes head sadly* ... (Paul, meanwhile, has somehow forgot where Parasite was on his own Top 10 Films of 2019 list, so he should probably be careful how hard he throws those stones inside the glass house that is the Podcast.)

 

So hop on board to say goodbye to 2020 once and for all, and maybe score a few extra films to add to your personal watchlist, as The Countdown continues ...

Soul review

This week, the boys are checking out Pixar's latest, Soul, starring Jamie Foxx and Tina Fey, and incredibly, Wayne had never heard of it! (No, really, he's a hell of a movie podcaster.) His coming-in-cold review compares against Paul's well-aware review, but will they both enjoy it? And how long will it be before an inappropriate joke finds it way into proceedings?

The WORST 10 Films of 2020

Countdown #302

 

2020's television had its Episode last week, but this time around it's the first of two episodes dedicated to the films that were released through the most recent annus horribilis. And the boys are kicking off with the WORST films released through a year that most would rather forget - films that were so bad, it seems only fitting that most wouldn't even see the interior of a cinema

 

How many horror films will Paul slate? Does Wayne show any pity whatsoever to the supposed blockbusters of 2020? And how many mentions does Adam Sandler rate in a worst of the year show?

Wonder Woman 1984 review

The guys this week take aim at the second big blockbuster of 2020 and the film that was meant to lift our spirits at the end of that terrible year: Wonder Woman 1984. With everyone of note back on board - from Patty Jenkins to Gal Gadot - this was meant to be a surefire hit. So what happened? Wayne and Paul have the answers for you as they make the call for #JusticeForHandsomeGuy

Countdown #301

 

This week the boys begin their wrap up of the awful year that was 2020 by taking a look at the one medium which seemed to be untouched by the terribleness that took hold of the world: Television! Both Wayne and Paul agree this year was a great one for the small screen, and spend far longer discussing their best of the year than they do taking aim at their worst. In fact, their lists are oddly similar for this Ep, but fear not, Wayne's old mate The Soundboard isn't taking it easy on him just because it's his birthday, especially since he seems determined to pick seasons of shows from before 2020 to talk about ...

 

Which Netflix premiere series did both guys think was more melodrama than the genre outing it was meant to be? Which AppleTV show surprised the pants off of them both? And which second season will reign supreme: The Mandalorian or The Boys?

 

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

Monster Hunter review

Happy New Year!

 

The world is about to be subjected to another MIlla Jovovich and Paul W.S. Anderson collab based on a video game, as apparently no-one has learned anything from the Resident Evil series. This time around they're tackling Monster Hunter, and Paul and Wayne had a chance to catch it early thanks to Sony Pictures.

 

Is it worth seeing at the theatre? Is Milla believable as the Captain of a group of Army Rangers? And is Ron Perlman's wig the worst in cinema history?
