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

Countdown #335

 

This week the boys take aim at those who refer to themselves as bona fide critics. Which is to say that rather than accepting the status quo, Paul and Wayne are calling out the formal critics for the films they’ve unfairly maligned on RottenTomatoes.com 

 

Be it horror sequels, misunderstood book adaptations or next generation sequels, the guys this week have the back of the “little films” that fell short and were piled on by the critics.
 

Will Wayne make room for a Tom Cruise vehicle? And does Paul talk up a terrible horror sequel? If you’re a fan of this show, you know the answer to both of those question is not “no”, but find out just how hardcore they are in their minority views as The Countdown continues …

Reminiscence review

Welcome to the latest review of yet another disappointing Warner Brothers' film! This time it's the Inception-lite, Blade Runner-wannabe, Reminiscence.

 

Written and directed by Westworld co-creator Lisa Joy and starring Huge Jackedman and Rebecca Ferguson, this one had promise. Sadly, for Wayne, it also had Thandiwe Newton, whereas for Paul it was just poorly written. And it seems the world agrees, as it has quickly become one of the biggest box office flops of all time.
 
But it did inspire the guys to continue their discussion post sign off, so, there's that, I guess ...

Top 10 Acting Debuts

Countdown #334

 

In this week's countdown, Wayne has a thing for Idris Elba's toothpick (or something), Paul is working hard to steal Wayne's thunder, and both think doing South African accents is satirically hilarious. Eventually.

 

Oh and they're also counting down the Top 10 acting debuts - in case you were wondering - as the Countdown continues!

Free Guy review

Free Guy was finally dropped into cinemas this last week, and of course, Paul and Wayne were there to cover it for you, gentle listener. But if you are of a sensitive disposition, maybe skip this review, as one of the boys loved the crap out of Ry-Ry's latest feature, and the other ... not so much.

 

Much spirited debate, bad language and use of The Soundboard follows.
 
You have been warned, even as The Countdown continues ...

Countdown #333

 

Are your feathers all neatly in order? Or, if you prefer, do you have a thick skin when it comes to your taste in film? Because it's feather-ruffling time on The Countdown! This Ep should surely come with a trigger warning for lovers of popular film as Paul and Wayne call out their ten most hated films with a Rotten Tomato Audience Score of 80% or over.

 

Sound convoluted? Just you wait! In fact, the challenge this week is two-fold ... Not only to figure out how the hell the guys decided to go with such a complicated topic, but also to not shut the Ep off once Wayne makes a base joke about one of your fave films, or Paul disses the same because Patrick Swayze was just too damn old!
 
Are you up to the challenge? Can you rearrange your feathers adequately?

The Suicide Squad review

The Suicide Squad hit cinemas and HBO Max in the last week, and there are a bevy of surprises in store for you with this one. 

 

For starters, James Gunn has been allowed to make HIS kind of superhero film with no strings attached. Then there's the fact that most of the critics are loving it. And yet, this won't make a third of the money that the original POS Suicide Squad in 2016 made. 
 
And if those aren't all suprising enough for you, how about the fact that both Paul and Wayne really enjoyed this one? AND one of them goes so far as to proclaim it as his film of the year (so far)!
 
Find out who as The Countdown continues ...

BONUS: The Ice Road review

This week the guys are braving the ultra thin ice to transport wellheads to a group of trapped miners in the Northern most tip of the Americas as they present to you a new BONUS review!
 
Yes, it's for the newest Liam Neeson actioneer, with thanks to Anarchy PR for the screener, but will the boys survive the dodgy CGI, Liam Neeson old-man fighting, and some extremely dubious professionalism in order to recommend The Ice Road to you?

Top 10 New York City Films

Countdown #332

 

This week is something a little different on the show, as the guys countdown the very best films set in a particular location. That location, as suggested by Patron Chris O'Neill, is the Big Apple, New York City.
 
So tune in to hear the oldest film Wayne has ever added to a list, Paul fail to shoehorn in a horror film ... and Paul's consternation at some of the omissions from Wayne's list in favour of some truly obscure choices.
 
So maybe this Ep isn't that different from the norm after all ...

Old review

M. Night Shyamalan is back! But is the Shyamalanassance officially over?

 

The boys weigh in with their take on his latest, weird, left-of-centre thriller and for an odd change, they're in almost complete agreement!
 
Listen in for this turn of events - which is way more shocking than anything that occurs in this movie - as The Countdown continues ...

The Top 10 Mini-Series

Countdown #331

 

For this week's episode, Patron extraordinaire David Powell, suggested the boys countdown their ten favourite mini-series of all time, so as to give those listeners still stuck in lockdowns around the world something extra to watch. That, of course, led to lengthy and heated discussions about what constituted a mini-series, but eventually, somehow, miraculously, here is the result.

 

Paul quickly acknowledges he hasn't watched some of the big favourites out there, while Wayne decides he is the number one card-carrying member of the David Schwimmer Fan Club. Either way, most listeners will find something to be offended by in this Ep. But, hey, that's pretty much what most come to The Countdown for by this point.
 

Find out just how offended you'll be - LONESOME DOVE! - as The Countdown continues ...
