Episode 113: VERSUS Part 1 - Arnie Vs Sly / Baywatch (w/ Jarrod)
Explicit
May 30, 2017 02:00 AM PDT

This week in an ALL NEW type of Countdown, Paul and Wayne ask great supporter of the show, Jarrod, to return to the guest host seat, only partially because he was the one who came up with this show idea! Essentially the VERSUS concept involves the guys once and for all, definitively deciding who wins some of the great comparative rivalries in Hollywood. And they're starting with one of the biggest: Arnold Schwarzenegger vs Sylvester Stallone to determine who is the bigger star!

Utilising a "revolutionary" scoring system, the guys get serious with the insults (amid much laughter and incredulity) as Wayne declares himself #TeamSly, while Jarrod and Paul may ever so slightly fall onto the side of #TeamArnie. At the end of the day, a winner is crowned, listener feedback is heard and a new type of Countdown is born.

Oh and Paul and Wayne give a short review of the critically panned Baywatch already out in the States and opening across the rest of the world this week. But be warned, #Negatron is back and on the warpath ...

Episode 112: Top 10 Shoot Outs / John Wick 2 / Alien Covenant

This week Wayne and Paul momentarily forget themselves and kick off the Ep with a serious review of Alien Covenant. Has Ridley Scott solved the problems with Prometheus or is it more of the same idiotic characters and Sir Scott loving himself just a bit too much?

Then the boys gush praise all over John Wick Chapter 2, leading to a fun discussion of the best shoot out scenes ever put to film. With Wayne preferring contemporary scenes, it falls to Paul to honour the classics, resulting in more than one name-calling session, multiple screeches of derision, and a crapload of laughs, as the Countdown continues ...

Episode 111: Top 10 Sexiest Scenes / Showgirls (w/ Justin from So I Married a Movie Geek)

This week the guys decide to get all touchy-feely in maybe too literal a sense as they were "convinced" (read: brainwashed) by Justin from the So I Married a Movie Geek podcast @MovieGeekCast to countdown their Top 10 Sexiest ever movie scenes. Of course, Justin was only too happy to put himself through the same exercise, so sexiness gets redefined as three adult males talk about those special scenes which were "meaningful" too them, mostly in their youth. (Aside from Wayne's #1 which he apparently watched last week.)

How many masturbation euphemisms can the guys come up with? At what point will Wayne stop making mention of being too creepy? And which Hollywood starlet has Justin rubbed shoulders with and managed to put out by mentioning her sexiest role to her?

All this AND a Rewind Be Kind review of Paul Verhoeven's critically lambasted and ultra-sleazy Showgirls (1995) on Ep 111 of The Countdown, recorded coincidentally on Mother's Day in Australia and the US. Which of course means this one is for all the Mums/Moms out there...

Episode 110: Top 10 Magic Movies

This week Wayne had a card up his sleeve but no rabbit in his hat as he got to pick the Countdown and somehow came up with this doozy which had both hosts scratching their head before recording, and taking pot shots at the other's list once the mics were turned on. There's too much craziness going on to give an accurate summary, so here's a few highlights:

- Season 2 of Tag Lines officially kicks off
- Wayne attempting to deny all fantasy movies as being magic
- Paul trying to sing Devil Inside by INXS
- Wonder Woman's armpits
- Steven Seagal soiling himself
- And Wayne calling out Mr Seagal to come "Taekwando my a$$"...

Episode 109: Top 10 Last 10 / Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2

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!)

Episode 108: Top 10 Unintentionally Funny Films / The Fate of the Furious

In this Episode, Wayne and Paul can barely contain themselves as they laugh, mock and (oddly) love on some of the most unintentionally funny films ever made. Which mid-90s action dud is the only film to hit both lists? How many Michael Bay films get mentioned? And whose list ends up being more offensive to film geeks of all ages?

But the laughs don't stop there. The boys also get stuck right into the eighth film in the Fast & Furious series, The Fate of the Furious. This money-making juggernaut has clearly pleased the masses, but was it meant to be funny? (Certainly the guy sitting next to Wayne in his screening did not think so.) And who wears the #Negatron crown when final grades are revealed?

Then Paul gets his Screeners on to review a couple of about to be released efforts: namely the locally produced Bad Girl (directed by Fin Edquist) and the extremely out there The Evil Within - a film fifteen years in the making that effectively killed its writer and director, Andrew Getty, before he could complete it.

In this bonus interview episode of The Countdown, Paul talks to Australian writer-director and VFX expert, Matt Drummond. Matt's second feature film, My Pet Dinosaur opens across Australia on April 22nd. He discusses moving from his Emmy award winning VFX work for television into making his own films and how he became "the dinosaur guy" in Hollywood. He also speaks about the 80s influence on the film and how fortunate he's been to tap into the neo-nostalgic surge in pop culture thanks to the success of Stranger Things.

Please help us thank Matt for his time by checking out the trailer for My Pet Dinosaur at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DGKgxNLnME and keep up with everything on the film @mypetdinomovie on Twitter.

Sharpen those graphite pencils, fire up your computers, and crack out the crayons as this week Paul and Wayne finally tackle one of the most requested Countdowns: the best animated films of all time! Such an occasion demands something special, so the boys asked The Expert aka Alejandro to return and lend his animation expertise to this week's show.

All three also review the "newly" released LEGO Batman movie - "newly" for Australia, anyway, as Village Roadshow made the d1ck decision to leave it some seven weeks to release this film here, while the rest of the world saw it back in February.

Does the Caped Crusader's efforts live up to all that was promised in The LEGO movie? Has Wayne seen enough animated films to make a list of 10? And how many of them will be Batman films? Find out the answers to all these questions and more - including whether Wayne rated the new Chips adaptation - as The Countdown continues ...
