TWO major reviews this week as Wayne and Paul get busy at the cinema (no, not in that way!). First up, they talk the comedy sequel Bad Neighbours 2, once again directed by one of Wayne's faves, Nicholas Stoller. Then they review the latest in the X-Men universe, X-Men: Apocalypse, with Bryan Singer continuing in the director's chair. Find out which the guys liked better and did either one surpass expectations? BOTH reviews are SPOILER-FREE (discussing nothing more than what you see in the trailers)!
Then it's straight into one of the biggest count downs ever as Paul and Wayne talk the Top 10 action scenes of all time. Things are relatively harmonious until Wayne tries to shoe-horn in a film from less than a month ago, triggering Consternation Paul, that in turn brings out Go-For-My-Balls Wayne. Who will you agree with?!
