96 minutes. 20 mini-reviews. Two feuding cohosts!
Unbelievably this week, some studio big wig decided to release one of the year's most massive sequels, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, early in Australia! So the boys got along to see it and offer their SPOILER FREE review of James Gunn's latest superhero effort between 9:00 and 22:30.
Then the guys get into an overdue Top 10 Last 10 as they each review the last 10 films they've seen from worst to best - which include all the flicks they pledged to watch in return for iTunes reviews left for the show. So Wayne FINALLY reviews The Godfather Parts 2 and 3, while Paul checks out his first ever musical for the show, La La Land, as well as the indie charmer Sing Street from last year. Things are mostly nice enough until proceedings taken a sudden turn for the ridiculous with the top half of Wayne's list. And wait until you hear what he ranks #1 and #2 respectively. (Hint: Prepare to be outraged!)
