Willy’s Wonderland review

It's garbage time on The Countdown and Nicolas Cage as The Janitor is here to take it out ...

 

Oh if only he could, but unfortunately the mess of his own making as the guys lay waste to his new film (which he also produced), Willy's Wonderland.

 

Who tears this animatronic monsters vs Cage film a bigger new one? And just how much money do the insane distributors of this one believe it's worth for rental?

 

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

Paul might be more known for his rants through the show's history, but how will Wayne respond to having his colourful language curtailed? And at $2 a swear, just how much money will be raised for the recent Perth bushfire relief fund (https://www.perth.wa.gov.au/news-and-updates/all-news/lmdrf-wooroloo-and-hills-bushfire-2021-appeal) by the end of this 80 minute episode?Learn the answers to these questions and more, as The Countdown continues ...

Boss Level review

Are you a bit jaded by not being able to go to the cinema in your part of the world? OR, if you can attend, the lack of bang for your buck you're getting with cinematic releases like Follow Me, The Little Things or Synchonic. Well, good news, everyone! Because the boys have the cure for what ails you with their early review of a new action sci-fier which is about to hit your screens: Boss Level!

 

With thanks to Anarchy PR and the screener they provided, the guys were able to see this one early and were both wowed by it! And they've got the skinny for you ahead of the film's cinematic release on Feb 25th in Australia and on Hulu in early March for you North Americans.

 

Can a time loop action film be anywhere near as good as Edge of Tomorrow? Does Frank Grillo really wear the coolest jacket in movie history? And how do we feel about Mel being back in films? Learn the answers to all these questions and more as The Countdown continues ...

Countdown #307

 

This week the boys have gone old school as they've miscommunicated over the brief, with Wayne Doing the Top 10 Films That Don't Hold Up while Paul added the words "From Childhood" to that.

 

As you can imagine, incredulity and insults entwine to make this an episode like the early days of the show ... except with half decent sound quality and the incredible welcome and amazing addition of The Soundboard :D
 
Who decides fantasy as a genre struggles to hold up? From what source does Christopher Nolan cop a bit of a bollocking? And how many childhoods will be ruined?

Synchronic review

Paul thought he was on a winner this week in convincing Wayne to watch, Synchronic, a brand new sci-fi horror which just hit theatres in very limited showings across the country, but it turns out this was way more of a sci-fi thriller ...

 

So will Wayne find enough out of having Falcon (minus the Winter Soldier) in the film? Or does he struggle to accept said Falcon would be be friends with someone like Mr Grey? Meanwhile, what has got Paul's goat? And is he reading too much into the film?
 
Learn the answers to all these questions and more, as The Countdown continues ...

Top 10 Film Nerdgasms

Countdown #306

 

This week the guys let their inner nerds fly amid way too many inappropriate jokes as they countdown their Top 10 Nerdgasm moments in film. From the MCU to Star Wars, The Matrix franchise to the Indiana Jones TRILOGY, this Ep has it all. Including a whole lot of snark, as Paul and Wayne both tee off on the other's list in a way not heard since, well, Ep 304 :P

 

Is Paul's theory that a nerdgasm can only take place when there's an expectation based on pre-existing material correct? Or does Wayne have the right of it by saying it only takes a nerdy film and a thrill of excitement to produce an associated 'gasm?

Promising Young Woman review

There's a great deal of buzz around Emerald Fennell's directorial debut, Promising Young Woman, so the boys are keen to check out what all the fuss is about.

 

What follows might be the least comedic review the guys have ever done as they reflect on this powerful film which features a killer performance from star Carey Mulligan, and debate some of the elements presented within.
 
So join the guys in a slight change of pace for the show - likely aided by the fact they were going into lockdown within an hour of recording this one - as The Countdown continues ...

Top 10 Needle Drops

Countdown #305

 

Do you sometimes find yourself humming a song and immediately thinking of a movie scene you heard it in? Well, the boys do. And given it was time for another music Ep on The Countdown, they opted to go with a suggestion from listener Tara Michalik and countdown their Top 10 Needle Drops! Wayne claims Paul's list will be edgy, but when three of their first four picks are essentially the same, it signifies strange times ahead. But don't worry, Wayne doesn't know the name of the artists that behind one of his choices, so normality soon asserts itself ...

 

Who will have more Edgar Wright than you can poke a stick at? And who somehow managed to make a top 10 list on this topic and not find a place for a song from a Quentin Tarantino movie? Learn the answers to all these question and a whole lot more, as The Countdown continues ...
