This week, Paul invites two southern gentlemen in the form of Wes from the Via VHS podcast and John from the Now in Technicolor podcast to guest on the show. Given they hail from North Carolina and Tennessee respectively, it was agreed there could be no finer Countdown than the Top 10 Films of the American South!
Of course, defining what is the American South becomes an issue as even the Americans can't quite agree, before Disney gets lauded and criticised for how it behaved in the 1940s, Paul loses all credibility for launching into a tirade against Forrest Gump, and one of the hosts pulls a great big honking surprise out of his very deep bag for his number one #MenCanLikeChickFlicksToo
All this and the guys review the new film John Krasinski, the very well received A Quiet Place. Which of the hosts seems a bit nonplussed by all the fuss? You might be surprised ...
Please thanks Wes and John for covering for Wayne (who will be back for Ep 161 #200ForWayne) by checking out their respective shows at https://viavhs.podiant.co/ and http://nowintechnicolorpod.podomatic.com/
