The Top 10 Films of 2020

Countdown #303

 

This is it! The big one. The episode first time listeners will often download to trial the show. But does that fact change anything for the boys when they reveal their Top 10 Films of the rough year that was 2020? Not likely. They're still arguing about whether Extraction or The Old Guard is the better film; Paul is still stacking his list with horror films; and Wayne is once again breaking the rules by including a film he already had on his Top 10 Films of 2019 list!

 

But as the guys say throughout the Episode, that's #2020 for you and Wayne spent half the year re-watching another film on his list, and so, apparently, didn't have enough good films to fill 10 spots *shakes head sadly* ... (Paul, meanwhile, has somehow forgot where Parasite was on his own Top 10 Films of 2019 list, so he should probably be careful how hard he throws those stones inside the glass house that is the Podcast.)

 

So hop on board to say goodbye to 2020 once and for all, and maybe score a few extra films to add to your personal watchlist, as The Countdown continues ...

Soul review

This week, the boys are checking out Pixar's latest, Soul, starring Jamie Foxx and Tina Fey, and incredibly, Wayne had never heard of it! (No, really, he's a hell of a movie podcaster.) His coming-in-cold review compares against Paul's well-aware review, but will they both enjoy it? And how long will it be before an inappropriate joke finds it way into proceedings?

The WORST 10 Films of 2020

Countdown #302

 

2020's television had its Episode last week, but this time around it's the first of two episodes dedicated to the films that were released through the most recent annus horribilis. And the boys are kicking off with the WORST films released through a year that most would rather forget - films that were so bad, it seems only fitting that most wouldn't even see the interior of a cinema

 

How many horror films will Paul slate? Does Wayne show any pity whatsoever to the supposed blockbusters of 2020? And how many mentions does Adam Sandler rate in a worst of the year show?

 

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

Wonder Woman 1984 review

The guys this week take aim at the second big blockbuster of 2020 and the film that was meant to lift our spirits at the end of that terrible year: Wonder Woman 1984. With everyone of note back on board - from Patty Jenkins to Gal Gadot - this was meant to be a surefire hit. So what happened? Wayne and Paul have the answers for you as they make the call for #JusticeForHandsomeGuy

Countdown #301

 

This week the boys begin their wrap up of the awful year that was 2020 by taking a look at the one medium which seemed to be untouched by the terribleness that took hold of the world: Television! Both Wayne and Paul agree this year was a great one for the small screen, and spend far longer discussing their best of the year than they do taking aim at their worst. In fact, their lists are oddly similar for this Ep, but fear not, Wayne's old mate The Soundboard isn't taking it easy on him just because it's his birthday, especially since he seems determined to pick seasons of shows from before 2020 to talk about ...

 

Which Netflix premiere series did both guys think was more melodrama than the genre outing it was meant to be? Which AppleTV show surprised the pants off of them both? And which second season will reign supreme: The Mandalorian or The Boys?

 

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

Monster Hunter review

Happy New Year!

 

The world is about to be subjected to another MIlla Jovovich and Paul W.S. Anderson collab based on a video game, as apparently no-one has learned anything from the Resident Evil series. This time around they're tackling Monster Hunter, and Paul and Wayne had a chance to catch it early thanks to Sony Pictures.

 

Is it worth seeing at the theatre? Is Milla believable as the Captain of a group of Army Rangers? And is Ron Perlman's wig the worst in cinema history?

The 300th Episode Hullabaloo

It's the big 3-0-0 this week and the guys are celebrating by NOT doing a Countdown (whaaaat?!) and instead are bringing back a bunch of the early segments that used to make up the show for an encore performance. There's Check it Out, Tag Lines, Insane in the Memwayne, a killer Seagal Watch, and of course, some amazing Listener Community feedback in the form of the Pop 10. 

 

PLUS a brand new segment that the guys had a lot of trouble recording with a straight face AND a brand new Soundboard filled with the openers for the above segments we well as more than one sound drop that makes Wayne lose his sh*t ...

 

Will the show ever be the same? Find out in the last Episode for 2020 as The Countdown (probably) continues ...

Shock horror! It really must be the end of days, because Wayne made time in his hectic schedule to appear on the monthly bonus Ep! But then how could he not, when the topic is to react to all the big trailers (and some tidbits of news) that came out of Disney's recent Investors Day.
 
So the boys watch all the big trailers and give their gut reactions (listen to Paul struggle) while bantering about all that will (hopefully) be coming our way in 2021, either on Disney+ or in theatres.
 
It's the first indication from an entertainment perspective that there is something to look forward to in the not too distant future, so get on board as The Countdown to the end of 2020 draws to a close ...

It's the longest review of the year for one of the few positives which 2020 delivered the world, the second season of Disney's The Mandalorian!
 
The guys geek out HARD on this one as they touch on all eight episodes in the second season. Does this season match, surpass or fall short of the first? Will it be more fondly remembered than the recent sequel trilogy? And were the new additions to the cast warranted or too fan servicey?

Countdown #299

 

It's time for another Top 10 Last 10, as the guys countdown 10 of the most recent films they've seen, ranking them from worst to best and mini-reviewing each along the way

 

Some of the films that are covered include Let Him Go, His House, Buddy Games, Love and Monsters, Possessor, Greenland and Honest Thief.
 
This one was intended as a big send off to the crapness that was 2020, and so it only seems appropriate that it contains perhaps the most Wayne moment that has ever Wayned. Will you ever tune in to the show again after this one, dear listener? Find out as The Countdown continues ...
 

P.S. To all who celebrate, Merry Christmas! And to those who don't, Happy Holidays!

 

P.P.S. As mentioned on the show, you can help Epic Film Guy Justin and his very ill puppy, Gus, here.
