Top 10 Road Movies

Countdown #321

 

Holiday Roooaaaahhhooooooaaaooooaahhooddd ...
 
It's been a long time since anyone has been on a long holiday pretty much anywhere, so this week the guys celebrate that not-quite sub-genre known as the road movie in order to take you, the listener, on a trip across country, and sometimes, across the world.
 
Will Paul and Wayne have their antennae tuned to the same station? Or is this the latest example of a brief that goes so far off the rails, it may as well be a train wreck, all of its own?
 

Find out, as The Countdown continues with the Top 10 Road Movies ...

This week Wayne is dragged kicking and screaming into his first ever Saw movie, so surely he hated every second of it? While Paul, meanwhile, loved the film AND watching Wayne suffer in his jocks?

 

Well, we live in a world where Chris Rock wanted to be in a Saw film and Samuel L Jackson thought he'd hitch his wagon (temporarily) to the same, so anything really can happen ...

Countdown #320

 

It's the topic "they" said couldn't be done. Find ten quality Australian television shows and try to sell them to a largely unsuspecting and mercifully unaware public. Well, Wayne and Paul are not ones to shy away from a challenge - unless it's about watching a lot of films, in Wayne's case, or horror films, or international films, or anything not really involving a superhero or gross-out humour ... Come to think of it, this wasn't a good direction for the show notes, so let's start again ...

 

Wayne is a bit of a wuss about watching most things, but not about watching late night TV, so learn something new on this week's show as the boys take you on a tour of (mostly classic) Aussie television and try to convince you there are diamonds hidden in that there rough.
 

Do either of the boys resort to an Aussie soap? Can Paul find an Aussie horror show to include on his list? And will Wayne include a show on his list purely because it featured nudity during his teenage years?

 

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

Wrath of Man review

Guy Ritchie and Jason Statham back working together in a violent action thriller. What could go wrong?

 

Well, if you've seen Revolver and/or are named Wayne, plenty apparently ...

Countdown #319

 

After last week's stomach turning insanity, the boys return to a regular topic they can snipe at each other about: the Top 10 Quentin Tarantino characters

 

QT is one of the guys' favourite filmmakers, but will they come together in terms of which characters they like best? Or will it turn into a Soundboard-infused insult-fest? Well, if you've listened to the show before, the answer is probably pretty obvious, but see if you can wrap your head around this one: One of the guys does NOT have Jules Winfield on his list?!

The guys this week review the entirety of the newest Marvel studios series, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. And because they got in to it way too fast, there are SPOILERS THROUGHOUT this ep.

 

Do Marvel and The Mouse combine for a streaming service based home run? Or is this a let down after the wild ride of their cinematic universe?

Countdown #318

 

This Episode is probably the dumbest idea Wayne has ever had, yet Paul idiotically chose to roll with it and now here you all are.
 
The Top 10 Gross Out Film Scenes is the shortest Countdown Episode of the podcast ever released, and with very good reason. The boys manage to gross each other and themselves out in describing these scenes, to the point where there is the occasional (not put on) dry retch. If that doesn't dissuade you, then this might: This is also the Episode where the guys rank the "best" bodily secretions to eat through to the worst.
 

You have been warned. Do not eat while listening to the Episode and please forgive the guys their folly, so that, hopefully, the Countdown will continue ...

MOORRRRTTAAALLLL KOMBAAAAATT!

 

If you thought a) the boys were going to miss their chance to review this R-rated reboot of the classic arcade game or b) would resist the temptation to yell their version of the iconic mid-90s song ... you're new to the show, so welcome, it's great to have you listening :P
 
Do you have to have played the game to enjoy this film? And is there anything here beyond the gory fights?
