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

It's been a few months since the guys have been able to put together a Bonus Ep for you fine folk, and with a wedding having occurred and then a snap lockdown, as well as some knee surgery, this last month wasn't any better.

But rather than leave you wanting, the boys decided to re-issue an interview Paul did with actress Jenette Goldstein (Near Dark, T2) about four years back - mostly tackling her iconic role as Vasquez in James Cameron's classic, Aliens. But they also cover what Jenette has been up to in more recent years, including her line of bras which can be found at Jenette's Bras.

 
The podcast has many more listeners these days, so hopefully this will be new to the vast majority of you, and for those who may have listened all those years ago, have a chuckle at Paul geeking out at interviewing the actor who brought to life of his favourite characters of all time...

Top 10 Television Jerks

Countdown #317

 

This week the boys are back in lockdown and are a bit salty because of this, so decide to take our their frustrations by naming and shaming the biggest Television Character Jerks ever!

 

Who from Seinfeld will get the nom? Who is the biggest jerk on the US version of The Office? And which of the guys will try to shoe-horn in the entire cast of a sitcom?
 

So get on board for all these answers plus the usual banter, laughs and questionable decisions - just with less Soundboard (thanks again, lockdown!) - as The Countdown continues ...

In this review boys are very pleasantly surprised by the new adult animated series from Robert Kirkman, Invincible, now streaming its first season on Amazon Prime. So surprised that they decided to review the first half of the series rather than wait for it to conclude.

 

Paul initially thinks its another standard superhero origin story but is soon won over by the hard left turn the series takes, while Wayne is more open-minded - superhero media being his jam. But who will be left more impressed by the mid-point of the series?

Countdown #316

 

This week, the popular Top 10 Last 10 format returns for the first time in 2021 and just before the Academy Awards occur. So in reviewing ten of their most recent watches not yet talked about on the show and ranking them from worst to best, Paul dedicates part of his list to Academy Award contenders (and another part to obscure B grade horrors), while Wayne goes on a George "Cloo-Cloo" marathon ... for no apparent relevant reason whatsoever.

 

Regardless, there are 20 mini-reviews here to both warn you off (crap starring Bruce Willis) and steer you toward (some fantastic) films, so dive right in with the boys, the water is fine.
 

Find out just how fine - and whether Paul actually did get married - as The Countdown continues ...

Godzilla Vs Kong review

In one of the longest reviews the boys have ever done for a regular length film, Wayne and Paul prove they are the most qualified movie review podcast to ever offer reviews when they try to make sense of the latest (and final?) movie in the Monsterverse, Godzilla vs Kong

 

Wayne doesn't even realise this is the fourth film in a series, while Paul cannot get his head around the fact the plot for this film was greenlit by any studio. But who, in the end, will tear Godzilla vs Kong a bigger new one? Find out as The Countdown continues ...

Countdown #315

 

This week there's wedding bells a-ringing as Paul is getting married to his long-time partner, Patsy. So, to mark the occasion, Top Level Patron Extraordinaire, Geordie Davidson, set the guys the task of counting down the Top 10 Films Featuring a Wedding.

 

With a brief this wide, will Wayne stay on topic? Does Paul shoehorn in another horror film onto his list? And who goes furthest into left field for the most unpredictable choice?
 

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

Nobody review

The boys zigged when you thought they were going to zag!

 

That's because this week they're checking out the new action film, Nobody, while everyone else is covering a giant lizard taking on an equally giant ape.
 
Nobody comes from the creator of John Wick and star's everyone's favourite new version of Liam Neeson, Bob Odenkirk.
 
Does the strange pairing work? Can Wayne possibly restrain himself from making too many Saul Goodman jokes? And will Paul be swayed by the John Wick-ness of it all?
 
Learn the answers to these questions and more, as The Countdown continues ...

Countdown #314

 

This week the boys get their snark on and do a DEEP dive into some of the very worst sequels of all time. The official title, then, is Worst 10 Films That Derailed The Franchise, but as Wayne insists, unofficially, it's Worst 10 Sequels That Defecated The Bed.

 

In other words, the guys get busy naming and shaming the films which stalled, killed, destroyed or at least caused a long pause or a change in direction for a franchise. How many superhero films make the list? Will there be a mention of a certain film Paul doesn't prefers not to acknowledge the existence of? And is the pronunciation of all punctuation in film titles gag going too far?

So the boys were meant to review Godzilla Vs Kong, but then Paul had emergency surgery on his knee and couldn't get to the cinema, so much to Wayne's chagrin, Paul realised they could review the latest Disney animated feature, Raya and the Last Dragon.

 

Of course, there is no more qualified podcast in the world to review a family-friendly Disney epic (LOL!), so the boys got to watching ... and something magical happened. It would be spoilers to say here, but this review may just represent the animated film renaissance for one of the hosts and a stunning disappointment to the other ...
