194 Top 10 Game-Changing Films / Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

In this week’s episode, the lads go hardcore positive as they Countdown the ten films which have proven to be cinematic GAME-CHANGERS! Which is to say they’re celebrating the trend-setters through the history of cinema, that films afterwards have tended to respect, emulate, homage, or flat out steal from as they search for similar success. Fear not, though, because there’s still plenty of scope for sniping to take place between the hosts with Wayne in particular proving to be a bit of an ass (Editor’s Note: We’ve talked about this, Paul. Stop picking on your host in the show-notes.)
Things are far nicer during this week’s review though, as the guys are generally astounded by the greatness that is Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Even if it must be acknowledged that this positivity and good will does not extend to the latest edition of Seagal Watch, with Steven once again proving, in multiple ways, that he is worse than the piece of doggie doo-doo you recently trod on and tracked unknowingly through the house.
And as a special BONUS: Make sure you listen out for an all new addition to the Soundboard which includes the world premiere of “The Wayne Song”, created by patron Billy from the We Watched a Thing podcast (based on an idea by Julio from The Contrarians podcast).
