Episode 173: The Countdown Vs So Wizard Podcast - Top 10 Most Pretentious Films / The Equalizer 2

Ever screwed up your nose at the pure stank of a film that took itself too seriously? The Countdown boys sure have - and they're here to throw rocks at their top ten list of pretentious films! Seriously, these movies are the celluloid equivalent of adding #blessed to every stupid facebook post.
And this week in the new Show Vs Show format, the boys are going up against Joey and Markellus from the highly revered So Wizard Podcast to see which show has the best list! Which podcast will win? Only you can decide! 
And speaking of pretentiousness, you also get a side of The Equalizer 2 review! Can you guess how the fellers felt about it? (You're right.)
With a pinky in the air and a johnson in both hands, keep it right here on The Countdown for all your pompous-movie-bashing needs!
