The Millennium Falcon. The DeLorean. The Batmobile. Just some of the most iconic movie vehicles to have ever graced the big screen. But which vehicle reigns supreme? That's what the boys aim to answer this week as they get up in each other's grill, while leaning on their air horns and trying to break the fastest quarter-mile record. (And expect Wayne to mention mounted cannons A LOT.)

There's also time for an in-depth review of Solo: A Star Wars Story, in which the guys break down why it has disappointed so many Star Wars fans the world over. Who hates the new droid? Who cannot believe how dumb Han Solo is? And who, inexplicably, cannot get on board with Thandie Netwon in ANYTHING?

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)

April 24, 2018 01:00 AM PDT

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!

Time Stamps:

Recount: 2:32 – 8:25
