The Countdown: Top Ten Sequels No One Wanted

The Countdown: Top Ten Sequels No One Wanted

| October 25, 2016

This was a hard list for me.  I have pretty good instincts about what movies I’m going to like and if I don’t like the first one, I’ll avoid the sequels.  My take on this topic is that these are terrible sequels to terrible movies, so I had to think long and hard about movies […]

The Countdown:  Top Ten Serial Killer Movies

The Countdown: Top Ten Serial Killer Movies

| October 19, 2016

I actually had a hard time with this list.  I like horror, and I like psychological thrillers, and of course there are plenty of serial killer movies that fall in those genres, but I also wanted to include some variety and present a list that represents everything I like about this very specific genre.  In […]

The Countdown: Top Ten Movies Set at Sea

The Countdown: Top Ten Movies Set at Sea

| October 11, 2016

I thought it would be difficult to come up with a list of movies set mostly at sea.  A couple of obvious ones popped right into my head, but I wasn’t sure I would be able to fill out a list of 10 that I really liked.  After some research, I was able to find […]

The Countdown: Top Ten Denzel Washington Movies

The Countdown: Top Ten Denzel Washington Movies

| October 5, 2016

Denzel Washington.  One of the great actors of our time.  His work truly does speak for itself, so let’s get right to it, but first, I’m a little embarrassed to admit that I have not seen Malcolm X, or Philadelphia.  Both are supposedly film classics and important, but I haven’t managed to make the time […]

The Countdown: Top Ten Movie Cameos

The Countdown: Top Ten Movie Cameos

| September 19, 2016

One thing I really hated about the latest Ghostbusters movie was the forced cameos throughout.  Except for Ernie Hudson, who I think was a good payoff at the end.  Bill Murray’s role was underwhelming, Dan Aykroyd’s cab driver appearance made no sense, I barely noticed Annie Potts until she screamed “what do you want” for […]

The Countdown: Top Ten Ridiculous Action Movie Scenes

The Countdown: Top Ten Ridiculous Action Movie Scenes

| September 6, 2016

On my podcast, I try to always see the good in things, except for on rare, very fun occasions.  One thing I really like about The Countdown is most of the time they stay very positive.  Their top ten last ten episodes usually feature some movies they really dislike, and occasionally they do lists like […]

The Countdown: Top Ten Kick-ass Female TV Characters

The Countdown: Top Ten Kick-ass Female TV Characters

| August 30, 2016

There’s nothing quite like a strong, intelligent, empowered female character who doesn’t need to be rescued and isn’t defined solely by her need to get a boyfriend.  Someone who not only will keep up with the boys but put them in their place with grace and civility.  Someone who is part of the media world […]

The Countdown: Top Ten Movies From The Past

The Countdown: Top Ten Movies From The Past

| August 22, 2016

This week on The Countdown: Movie and TV Reviews podcast, Paul and Wayne are talking about their top ten movies set before the 20th century, so I naturally tweeted them that the best one was Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.  It takes place a long LONG time ago after all and I […]

The Countdown:  Top Ten Ensemble Films

The Countdown: Top Ten Ensemble Films

| August 15, 2016

The Countdown: Top Ten Ensemble Movies Often on The Countdown: Movie and TV Reviews Podcast, Paul and Wayne discuss what they’re criteria for assembling a given list might be.  Seems fair. Ensemble movies cover a ton of different movies in all genres, time periods, styles, etc, so I wanted to put together a list that […]

The Countdown: Top Ten Kurt Russell Movies

| August 8, 2016

I’m excited to start this new weekly segment. A few months ago, I started a podcast called Quote Unquote Guilty all about guilty pleasures.  Upon getting some of my friends addicted to podcasting, they too started shows of their own and I compiled us all under a shared network: Word Salad Productions.  Recently, I reached […]
