Top 10 Animated Series

Countdown #326
 
In this week's long awaited Episode, the boys count down their top 10 animated series of all time! What series from their childhoods will pop up high on their lists? And how many modern day entries do either of the hosts go for?
 
Bah, who am I kidding? Trying to make this one sound even remotely mysterious is beyond my Monday evening writing skills. So let's try a more honest approach ...
 
Shockingly, Wayne loves Batman. Even more shockingly, Wayne leaves off a beloved animated series which has ruled prime time television since time immemorial. But perhaps most shockingly of all, Paul is incredulous and bashes Wayne with the Soundboard over his poor choice. Which, of course, inspires Wayne to tell Paul to eat parts of the human anatomy. Shockingly.
 
Sometimes familiar is fun. And maybe even funny. At least the guys hope so ... as The Countdown continues.

In this new bonus episode format, Paul and Wayne step right outside their comfort zone to check out a film which wouldn't normally in their wheelhouse.

 

In this case, it's the indie drama, the Killing of Two Lovers, playing as part of the Revelation Perth International Film Festival, running between the 1st and 11th of July.
 
Will the guys find merit in a film that doesn't have big explosions or over the top laughs? Or is this a case of one step too many for them? Find out as The Countdown Gets Cultured!

F9 Review

FAMILY.

 

There's probably not much more which needs to be said, but if you've not yet had your fill of Vin Diesel never losing, physics being an optional universal extra, and car bonnets saving more people falling from heights than the inflatable mattresses fire fighters use, then THIS is the film - and the review - for you!

Top 1o Plot Contrivances

Countdown #325

 

This week Wayne is on-brief (hooray!) as the guys get stuck into biggest plot contrivances films have dared to try and sell their audiences.
 
From emperors making a stunning return to a superhero's ability to turn back time, no stone is left unturned as the boys attempt to one up each other with their choices.
 
Will Wayne dare to call out the Dark Knight trilogy for a massive contrivance? Could Paul possible crap on a fave horror film for how it bends its convenient rules? And just how long will the conversation about masturbation in lockdown go on for?
 
Learn the answers to all these questions (and a whole lot more) as The Countdown continues ...

Wayne is all abuzz, while Paul has been left cold to this sequel which no-one in the world was asking for. Ah well, Salma Hayek uses the "c" word in the movie so from that point there was never going to be a way to convince Wayne this was anything more than mediocre entertainment. At best.

 

Find out which side of the fence you fall on as Ryan Reynolds once again plays Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L Jackson collects another pay cheque, and Salma Hayek reminds us all of how amazing she is ... all while The Countdown continues!

Countdown #324

 

It's like the days of old on The Countdown this week, as Wayne completely screws up the brief, tries desperately to change things up on the fly, and gets called out for his shenanigans by a disbelieving Paul.

 

I mean, really. How hard is it to remember a topic as "complex" as Top 10 Boat Movies? But no, not on this Mickey Mouse podcast. That would be way too much like plain sailing on water like glass with a pink sky at night (rather than in the morning).
 
Can Wayne salvage his list? Will Paul give him a chance to? And is there any better film than Jaws when it comes to films set on a boat?

Wayne wraps up his month from hell with another horror movie, but because up is down and left is right in Bizarro World, he somehow likes it more than Paul who is sick of horror sequels masquerading as police procedurals.
 
Chaos ensues.
 
The fabric of the universe begins to unweave.
 
Such is the suckiness of The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It.

Countdown #323

 

This week the guys get stuck into some of the greatest big-budget films of all time with their countdown of the Top 10 Summer Movie Blockbusters.

 

Aside from having varying ideas on what actually constitutes summer, the boys have some very different takes on this list. For example, how many Tom Cruise films does Wayne manage to fit into his list? Which is the superior film featuring Indiana Jones? And what is the best sci-fi film of all time?

This week Paul has convinced Wayne to do another horror movie! Though, truth be told, he didn't have to bend his arm too backwards, as it was to a sequel to one of Wayne's favourite horror movies (and one that made his top 10 list three years back)! It's A Quiet Place Part II.

 

Is the film up to the standard of the first? Are audiences as respectful of the need for silence when watching a film like this? And, most importantly, will Wayne's bladder stand the tension?

Countdown #322

 

This week's countdown was wayyy more difficult than the boys imagined. Which means they agreed to go easy on each other as their lists were revealed. You can make your own wager as to how long that agreement lasts ... as they celebrate the most ridiculous movie missions in cinema history.

 

What absolutely dumb or ill-though through missions will make their list? How many will be missions to save the world from a ludicrous threat where the chances of success are about as good as Wayne making it through an episode without swearing? And how many will be about the size of a boat? (Seriously. Wayne. Holy crap, man.)
 

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