Episodes

Countdown #348

 

This week the guys are attempting to celebrate those incredible filmmakers who have a singular vision and are able to deliver on it, as they countdown the Top 10 films written and directed by one person.

 

Except, of course, things fly off the rails very fast as Paul makes a late critical change to his list. Not to be outdone, Wayne changes his list as he hits certain points of his list not once, but twice, have completely failed to do his due diligence AGAIN!
 
Cue much griping from Paul and laughing from Wayne, at least until the Soundboard enters the fray, and the laughing gives way to much cursing (and bitching) from the W-meister.

So all in all, it's much like an episode of old, as The Countdown continues ...

Countdown #347

 

This week the guys open a port to their hearts and invite you to come along for the ride, as they name their top 10 favourite songs used in films. Of course, there's a mismatch in the brief - despite some very clear chat messages (screenshots to be posted to social media upon request hahaha) - which means Wayne is working harder to justify the scene he has chosen, while Paul is all about how good the song is.

 

Just the same, there's 20 songs here that speak to the boys in one way or another, so tune in, sit back and prepare to be teleported away to the sounds of an especially musical ep (no, no THAT kind of musical; NEVER that kind!) ... as the Countdown continues.

No Time to Die review

Wayne can barely conceal the swell in his pants for this week's review. It's kind of understandable though, as he's been having to put a lid on it since April of 2020 when the final installment in the Daniel Craig James Bond franchise was originally meant to release. But now, finally, it's time to die and Wayne is allll over it. Paul, meanwhile, offers a more down to earth, less squealing (more sleepy) fan-person take. So, yes, the inevitable clash of perspectives eventually comes to pass in this review.

 

Find out just how large that clash is - as well as so much more - as The Countdown continues ...

Countdown #346

 

This week's short and not-so-sweet Countdown pits the filmographies of two everyday people action stars, Nicolas Cage and Bruce Willis, against each other to determine who has made the superior mark on cinema! Except along the way, Wayne mortally offends Paul with one of his choices, and from there it's on for young and old ...

 

Who doesn't rate Sin City? Who thinks The Last Boy Scout is anything other than a passable early 90s action film? And who forgets Looper was even a thing?
 

Learn the answers to all these questions - as well as who won the Vegemite Challenge - as The Countdown continues ...

Last Night in Soho review

Paul is all excited because Edgar Wright's newest film, Last Night in Soho, has finally reached Australian shores as part of the British Film Festival. Wayne shares some of that excitement, but doesn't have the same Wright expectations, so who ends up liking this one more? And just how much is Wayne's take on the film inflated by the '60s fashion in display?

 

Learn the answers to these critically important questions - and more! - as The Countdown continues ...

Countdown #345

 

This week Jason from the Binge Movies podcast returns to the show to assist in counting down a brief so complex, it was destined to go completely off the rails (and does!): the Top 10 Box Office Flops of the 2010s.

 

Whether ranking this one by actual box office return, unmet expectations, how terrible the film was, or by some intensely personal combination of the three factors, Paul, Wayne and Jason get into some of the worst received films of the last decade, and no studio or genre is safe!

 

But rest assured, that even when a guest is present and the topic may not lend itself to inappropriate humour, the boys will never, ever let you down in that regard. in fact, things get so out of control that Jason gets swept along for the ride in the first five minutes, uttering a word so filthy, he's never said it before on his show.
 

Find out what that word is - as well as a whole bunch of films you probably don't need to watch, if you've been fortunate enough to avoid them so far - as The Countdown continues ...

Halloween Kills review

In the latest edition of "Wayne Yells at Horror Movies That Paul Has Made Him Watch", the big twist may be that he's not alone in his hatred of this particular film ...

 

Yes, it's time for the boys to go back to Haddonfield where Michael Myers continues his killing spree, not at all deterred by the fact that fire was eating him alive at the end of the last film. But ohh, for that to be the biggest problem in Halloween Kills.
 
Find out what those other massive problems are, as The Countdown continues ...
 
(Oh and stick around after this bloodbath for a big announcement re the show moving forwards.)

Top 10 TV Drama Characters

Countdown #344

 

This week the guys go back to the realm of TV - minus the ludicrously long Growing Pains opener - to talk the very best characters from dramatic television shows. 

 

Sci-fi is out and so is fantasy, yet somehow, one of the guys (yes, Wayne) has a Smallville character on his list! Paul, meanwhile, has to contend with no-one from a horror TV show being eligible, but at least he doesn't resort to selcting someone from The A-Team ...

 

Yes, you've guessed that it's a contentious Ep this week. So join us as The Countdown continues ...
