Countdown #313

 

This week with thanks to top level Patron Luigi Tirone, the boys are counting the films which they believe generated the most conversation

 

Be it due to controversy, ambiguity or sheer awesomeness, Wayne and Paul are ready to argue until they're blue in the face as to how their list trumps the other. Meaning it's time to ensure the headphones are in or the kids are out of earshot ... as The Countdown continues ...

Warning: There are SPOILERS throughout this Ep (but especially from the 6 min mark).

 

Wayne is rock hard in anticipation while Paul is extremely dubious, because Zack Snyder's version of the Justice League is upon us and everyone can now experience the way the DCEU was supposed to go before, well, stuff like Batman V Superman happened.
 
Will Wayne survive getting a bonus shot of Batman through his brain? Can Paul engage his Cyborg-like heart long enough to appreciate what an occasion this is? But most of all, is this version better or worse than the 2017 Theatrical Cut?

Countdown #312
 
This week the boys are flipping the script and counting down the films which made them most happy - a sequel of sorts to the films that made them angry a few weeks back. You might think this lends itself to another positive lovefest, but you'd be wronger than the wrongest person on the wrongest day of their wrong, wrong life. Because the guys go to town on each other's choices, and Wayne, in particular, shows no mercy, and in response The Soundboard fires up!
 
How many rom-coms can Wayne squeeze int o his list? And does Paul a swifty with a left field horror choice? If your answers were "too many" and "of course", you're a regular listener. If you're bemused by those prospects, welcome to the show .... as The Countdown continues ...

Coming 2 America review

This week the guys check out a film 33 years in the making starring the vampire known as Eddie Murphy (seriously, does the man age?!) and his equally ageless side kick, Arsenio Hall (who has clearly made a pact with the devil to maintain his beauty). That film is Coming 2 America - a film which Wayne thinks is no more funny or clever than the crappy way the title for this sequel has been put together.

 

But the big question is: what does Paul think? Is he bothered by the relatively poor jokes, the painfully obvious script or the weirdly inauthentic character turn for Prince Akeem? Or does he like this film MORE THAN WAYNE?!?!
 
Find out as The Countdown continues ...

Coming 2 America SPOILER-FREE Review : 0:00 - 14:36
Coming 2 America SPOILER-FILLED Discussion: 14:36 - 19:55

Countdown #311

 

Are you weary of the guys going to town on one another, ragging on the other's choices, and generally throwing shade like it was five in the afternoon? Do you wish there was less banter and more loving of films? Well, THIS is the Ep for you as Paul and Wayne BARELY disagree at all in revealing their Top 10: Unexpectedly Awesome Films list! (Don't worry the random colon in there will make sense after you listen to this one.)

 

Which film did Paul's mother force him to watch as 12 year old along with Dirty Dancing yet still earned a place on this list? Which Tim The Tool Man Taylor film made Wayne's list? And does Paul have a musical on his?!

 

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

WandaVision Series review

Prepare yourselves, ladies and gentlemen, for one of the hottest takes you are likely to hear this year in reference to any review of film or television, and certainly when it comes to anything MCU. Prepare yourselves for the boys' take on WandaVision!

 

But most especially Paul's ...
 
Is WandaVision the greatest television event since the first season of The Mandalorian? Did Marvel make the nine-episode series worthwhile? And most importantly, did they over-promise and under-deliver when it came to the finale?
 
Learn the answers to all these questions and more, as The Countdown continues ...
 

PLEASE NOTE: This is a review of the whole series so although there is a spoiler-warining at about the 8:45 minute mark, you're really best of steering well clear until you've finished this show and want to unpack it in slightly more critical than glowing terms ...

So it goes down to the wire on jumpstreet as ninety nine of Brooklyn's finest don the blue for the NYPD and become justified in their use of the elite police squad, which includes some true detectives.
 
(Yes, this is another test of whether anyone reads these show notes. How many shows did the three of you who do so get out of that paragraph? LOL!)
 

Find out just how many detectives as The Countdown continues ...

I Care A Lot review

This week the guys are taking on another sociopathic Rosamund Pike character in I Care A Lot. This black comedy thriller from the director of The 5th Wave divides the boys (to some extent) as Wayne decides he struggles with any film that is less than joyful, while Paul, predictably, derides him for it.

 

Meanwhile, there's cursing and Wayne says inappropriate things.
 
(I know, you're all shocked.)

Top 10 Film Fan Theories

Countdown #309

 

This week the guys are delving into the obscure world of film fan theories, and they're scour the furthest reaches of the web to bring you the cool, the weird, the brazen, and the downright disturbing perspectives many hold about particular films.

 

So prepare yourself to be incredulous, wowed and frightened - and that's just by Wayne's laugh - as this episode progresses.
 
Which film features a hidden Time Lord? How many characters are projections of another character's psyche? And how many theories can Wayne shoehorn in about James Bond?
 

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