Episode 159: Top 10 Films of the South / A Quiet Place
Explicit
April 17, 2018 02:00 AM PDT
itunes pic

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/

Time Stamps:

Recount: 2:40 – 9:42

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/

Madness. Absolute madness. And a whole lot of laughs. That's what you can expect when Toffa from the Master Debaters Podcast returns to assist the boys in deciding which (male) actors are most in need of a slap! Which actors keep making poor casting choices? Which ones have a crappy attitude toward their fame (but love all the dollars they rake in)? And which ones are complete and total do*chebags in real life? Find out who are the worst of the worst, and marvel as Wayne, once again, completely goes his own way to the incredulity of Paul and Toffa.

But that's not all! The listeners provide some of the best feedback ever this week, and there's the return of an old fave segment: Tag Lines!

Episode 153: Top 10 Last 10 / Red Sparrow

Every so often the boys get delusions of being real movie reviewers and decide to review a whole bunch of films from worst to best that they've recently seen. They call it a Top 10 Last 10 show. But with all the usual banter, bad language, questionable calls, and rage-inciting Soundboard (which btw has received an upgrade!), you can bet your bottom-dollar that nothing is changing too much around these parts.

Or is it? Because Wayne and Paul this week unveil a new potential opening theme to the show. "Potential" because it's the first of three or four that will ultimately be put to the fan vote to see which should sub-in occasionally for the well-worn and controversy-inducing old theme. Will you recognise the theme? Can Paul's limited vocals ruin Wayne's sterling effort? Is this the song to replace whatever the hell it is that starts the show right now?

Oh, and the guys also review the new Jennifer Lawrence film, Red Sparrow. Find out whether the critics have the right of it as The Countdown continues ...

This week's promos are for awesome #PodFix Network show, the Rabbit Ears TV Podcast, with Paul's Spirit Animal Ashlee at https://rabbitearstv.podiant.co/ and the great Now That I'm Older with Shane and Kenny at http://nowthatimolder.com/ And don't forget our oldest and bestest podcasting friends, the Epic Film Guys, aka Nick and Justin, at http://epicfilmguys.podbean.com/

Episode 150: Top 10 Critically Panned Films That Were Actually Awesome / The Cloverfield Paradox

How often do you disagree with what the critics have to say? Those hoighty-toighty, high-falutin', too-cool-for-school know-it-alls, who think, just because they've studied film, that they can tell the rest of us what to think about a movie? What about Rotten Tomatoes? Ever spat your morning coffee over your keyboard in shock at the score for the latest Michael Bay masterpiece?

Well, okay, that last part is a stretch, but Wayne and Paul most definitely are sick and tired of professional critics getting it wrong. And so this week on The Countdown, they're putting it right with their Top 10 Critically Panned Films That Were Actually Awesome (aka Go Blow, Critic!)

They also find the time to sneak in a review of the sneakily released The Cloverfield Paradox. Is this the future of film releases? Could theatres soon be as dead as drive-ins? The boys give their thoughts and opine on whether Netflix wisely spent their money in acquiring this one ...

All this AND a very moving tribute by Paul to The Soundboard as The Countdown continues!
