Seriously, who doesn't love action comedies? They make you laugh, they require no brain power, and then some sh#t blows up. Entertainment!

This week, Paul and Wayne dive slow-mo through the air firing guns and quipping at each other as they count down their top ten action comedies! Because, y'know, Action comedies are awesome.

But that''s after they take on the Merc With The Mouth with their massively conflicting takes on Deadpool 2!! One of 'em dug it, the other not so much. (Editor's note: I didn't hate it, you tool. I just don't love it more than my second-born child like you seem to.) Which host will you agree with? Find out as the Countdown continues!

This week in honour of Wayne's newly installed cybernetic hip, the boys countdown the Top 10 Cyborg Films! Not surprisingly, they spend half the time arguing about what films should and should not qualify.

But before that they review The Karate Kid as directed by patron Warren Leo (thanks Warren!) and jump off that to mini-review the first episode of the brand new follow up series, Cobra Kai.

Which means TV is STILL a thing on the show! Sort of. Maybe. Oh okay, a bit.

Episode 160: Top 10 Film Antiheroes / Rampage (w/ Who Spiked the Puns? & Shaken Not Nerd podcasts)

In the final Wayneless Episode (Virtual Wayne not withstanding), Paul is joined by two good friends from https://www.podfixnetwork.com/ Namely, Fuzzy Dan from the Who Spiked The Puns podcast at http://whospikedthepuns.com/ and Dudi Deutrom from Shaken Not Nerd at https://omny.fm/shows/shaken-not-nerd

To kick things off Fuzzy, Dudi and Paul review the newest Dwayne Johnson "blockbuster", Rampage, which re-teams the star with the director of San Andreas. Two of the hosts go a little savage on the film, while the third defends it grimly as "popcorn" entertainment.

Then it's time to see just how often the hosts between them can "Pull a Dudi" (which is basically when you haven't seen a film which everyone would expect you have. ie. nowhere near as rude as you might have initially thought) as the guys countdown their Top 10 Film Antiheroes. Who has trouble sticking to film as a medium? Who righteously loves it when someone else hasn't seen one of their entries? And who tries to shoehorn in reference to a film not yet made? (Protip: The answer to all of these questions is Dudi.)

Please thank Dan and Dudi for filling in for Wayne by checking out their excellent shows, and tell 'em The Countdown sent you!

Episode 159: Top 10 Films of the South / A Quiet Place

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/

Episode 158: Top 10 Movie Fights (w/ the Epic Film Guys & So I Married a Movie Geek podcasts)

This week Paul decides to have some fun by returning to an old topic which has long since disappeared from the server with the Top 10 Movie Fights (or, somewhat more generally, Conflicts). And in keeping with the spirit of the topic he decided to recruit two guest hosts who are renowned through the PodFix Network for their polar opposite views on most things movie-related. So, here's an appropriate intro to both "competitors" ...

In the red corner, out of New York State, weighing in at 140-odd episodes, it's the man who puts the hate into Haterade, the Count of Criticism, Epic Film Guy Nick Haskins!

And up against him in the blue corner, straight out of the 'burbs of Los Angeles, weighing in at 300 plus episodes, it's the Paragon of Positivity, the Emperor of Enthusiasm, So I Married a Movie Geek's Justin Winters!

These two fierce competitors are not about to let their opponent get the better of them as they offer their wildly disparate views on various films. And with not one but TWO Soundboards in play through this Ep, things are sure to get a touch out of hand ...

So, without any further delays, let's get ready to banter!

Please thanks Nick and Justin for covering for Wayne (who is doing well btw #200ForWayne) by checking out their respective shows at http://www.epicfilmguys.com/ and https://soimarriedamoviegeek.podbean.com/

Episode 157: Top 10 Hidden Gems of the 80s / Ready Player One (w/ Gidgit VonLaRue)

With Wayne out of hospital and commencing his recovery, Paul is this week joined by Gidgit VonLaRue from The Retro Cinema podcast. Gidgit's show is focused on '80s films so there was no better person to have on to discuss the nostalgia heavy, Steven Spielberg blockbuster release, Ready Player One. Gidgit does a great job of channeling the positivity of Wayne, but does Paul jump on the same hype train? Or is #Negatron back with a vengeance?

Then Gidgit and Paul get down to unearthing some hidden gems from the '80s - films that most have forgotten, or were criminally underrated and not received the love they deserve. Both lists feature some incredibly deep cuts, so be prepared to add to your watchlist by the end of this one.

And in a Countdown first, The Soundboard this week features when a guest is also on the show! Though, fear not, The Soundboard apparently saves its worst trolling for Wayne ...

Please let Gidgit know how much you enjoyed her appearance on twitter @GidgitVonLaRue and check out her great show at http://theretrocinema.com/

Get ready for a rim job from Paul & Wayne! (Just kidding, Paul can't handle butt stuff.) But they sure can handle reviewing Pacific Rim Uprising!

Then settle in for a fight as the boys stand off in a knock-down drag out brawl when they rank which 2nd films in a franchise rocked the most! Will your fave be on the list? Will you get pissed at the critical one Wayne left off the list? (There's every chance you will ...)

Then there's a great Easter Egg contribution from the awesome Deana Marie of the Twisted Philly podcast. Please let her know how much you value her effort by checking out her show at http://twistedphilly.com/
