Episode 179: Top 10 Inspirational Films / Mile 22

This week is another Patron Directed Ep, with Chris Clifton (aka Cliffy) directing the boys to Countdown their Top 10 Most Inspirational Films. This one ends up being quite the insight into the hosts' heads (as well as their respective testosterone counts), so prepare for some deeper content ... even if it is interwoven with the same foul language and general shade-throwing that you've come to expect from The Countdown. (They really don't know any other way.)

And as it that isn't enough, the REAL controversy occurs when Wayne and Paul review this week's new release, the latest Peter Berg and Mark Whalberg collaboration, Mile 22. It's a highly combative stand-off as one of the boys likes it a great deal, and the other wouldn't defecate on it for all the money at a sleazy Amsterdam nightclub. 

So strap yourselves in ladies and gentlemen, this one gets a bit wild as The Countdown continues ...
