Episode 124: Top 10 Rom-Coms / The Big Sick
Explicit
August 15, 2017 02:00 AM PDT
itunes pic

This week things get a might testy as Paul suffers through a show all about his least favourite genre: Rom-coms! The boys review the well-received The Big Sick before counting down their Top 10 Romantic Comedies, and it's fair to say that things spiral out of control by the end of these lists. Wayne takes particular umbrage at some of Paul's choices, resulting in some short-tempered banter and a defensive use of The Soundboard - which doesn't help Wayne's overall disposition at all!

This week Wayne and Paul slip into some kick ass thigh high boots and strut their stuff with Deana Marie of the Twisted Philly podcast as they review the new Charlize Theron cold-war actioneer, Atomic Blonde!

This week's MASSIVE Ep features not just a feature review for the hotly anticipated (by people other than Wayne and Paul) War for the Planet of the Apes, but two, that's right TWO Countdowns! The first is a mini-Countdown of the best trailers from San-Diego Comic Con in the boys' Check It Out segment, before the main review, the latest Top 10 Last 10.

Just how much monkeying around is there? And how many of the guys' selections ape one another's choices? Plus is there a third monkey-based pun that should have gone here? (Ahh, who cares, no-one reads these show notes anyway.) Find out all this and more - including whether Wayne finally smashes The Soundboard! - as The Countdown continues ...

Kiah chats about his long-time passion for making films, how he came to direct Wyrmwood, and the challenges inherent in making a film over a four-year period. He discusses forming his own production company, Guerilla Films, with his brother and co-writer, Tristan, and how they chose their next project to be a TV series continuing the Wyrmwood story.

Christoper Nolan's critically acclaimed Dunkirk has arrived meaning the guys charged off to the cinema to see it. Well, Paul charged off; Wayne was dragged along not quite kicking and screaming. So is it any surprise that they had very different reactions to the film? Find out how different amid a barrage of bad language, incredulity, and the Soundboard being put to very good use!

Then things get even more personal as the guys pit their lists of best ever directors against one another. And though there are some similarities, there are even more significant differences, leading to more (mostly) good-natured banter...

Episode 120: Top 10 Movie Song Moments / Baby Driver

In this week's big Ep, Wayne and Paul review Edgar Wright's newest, Baby Driver, and determine whether a film so closely tied to music can work when it's not (quite) a musical. For once, the boys are largely in agreement, and the good will continues into The Countdown this week, as they each reveal their Top 10 Movie Song Moments. ie. The best moments in film that are made astoundingly amazing by the soundtrack that is playing over them.

Given Paul and Wayne have VERY different music tastes, you could be forgiven for thinking this one would have involved anger, cursing, and more incredulity than that associated with Wayne saying he still likes The Big Bang Theory. But as it happens, relations remain very positive throughout the Countdown, maybe even bordering on buoyant. (Though of course, things inevitably go pear-shaped for a few moments through Wayne's list, in particular.)

Then stick around until the end of the Ep as next Apple Podcast review incentive is revealed because it's an absolute doozy which has Wayne sweating buckets ...

Paul and Wayne this week shoot their webs over everything to do with the newest film in the MCU, Spider-Man: Homecoming, directed by the previously unheralded Jon Watts. They answer all the important questions during their review, including is there too much Tony Stark? Does Michael Keaton rank up there as one of the best MCU villains? And does anybody NOT want a "Karen" for themselves?

Then the guys serve up some cold assed dishes as they talk the best revenge films of all time. Given the subject matter, things are refreshingly polite through most of the Ep, though Wayne (of course) makes room for one controversial choice, and Paul (of course) mocks him with the help of the much-loved and always on-point Soundboard.

The VERSUS format is back this week as Paul and Wayne decide once and for all, definitely, no further discussion needed, which era spawned the best action films, the 1980s or the 1990s. Both hosts have their preference, but their can be only one, so someone has to leave disappointed, which is predictably hilarious to the other host.

On top of that, the boys check out the latest news and disagree vehemently about how much Tony Stark should be in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

With only the latest Transformers hitting cinemas this week, Paul and Wayne opt to counter-program by addressing a regularly requested countdown: The Top 10 Documentaries. As you might imagine, this one is therefore a little more serious as the guys talk earnestly about some sensitive and dark subject matter. But that's not to say there isn't room for a new segment and the associated new opener, as Wayne finally premieres "Insane in the Mem-Wayne"; while Paul is struck low by a larynx-affecting virus which makes his voice crack like a 14 year old's at irregular intervals.

On this week's BIG Countdown, Paul and Wayne compare and contrast their Top 10 most rewatchable films. Of course, things get personal with lists that are so near and dear to their hearts, but the guys surprise themselves by just how different their lists are. This makes for some serious barbs being traded in true Countdown style, but Wayne delivers the knockout blow with what is sure to be one of the most talked about Number Ones in the history of the show ...

In keeping with the rewatchable theme, the guys also Rewind Be Kind review a classic film from director Rob Reiner, 1987's The Princess Bride. And if you're thinking that should lend itself nicely to the return of the unofficial third member of the podcast, The Soundboard (or Sir Soundboard as it's known to Wayne), you'd be thinking correctly!
