Episode 71: Fate of the Furious

April 21, 2017

Listen to the beginning of the podcast to hear the changes we've made.  Basically, we will be splitting up our podcasts and distributing shorter chunks every single week.  On the debut podcast using this format, we spend the most time reviewing The Fate of the Furious before doing some Movie Math for the FFL scoreboard.  Before that, there's plenty of talk about other movies we've seen, including a Confessional by Scott (which you won't want to miss!).  Enjoy and send feedback to rad.notions@gmail.com


Beauty and the Beast/The Princess Bride/Live-Action Remake Studio Pitch

March 28, 2017

As we continue on in the FFL season, the guys take a look at Jordan's 3rd overall pick, Beauty and the Beast.  They play Devil's Advocate as they try to persuade/dissuade you from seeing the movie (though, as you'll see in the Movie Math section, most people ended up seeing it).  Once they break from this year's films, they take a look at the cult-hit The Princess Bride before returning to their Live-Action conversations regarding their newest Studio Pitch.  It's a packed podcast and, although Jordan is sick with a cold, it's not contagious!  Enjoy and talk to you all in two more weeks!


Logan/Kong: Skull Island/Capote/Superhero Mount Rushmore

March 14, 2017

After last episode's draft, the guys already can knock two movies of their list as they review Jordan's 2nd and Scott's 5th picks - Logan and Kong: Skull Island.  Things go according to plan as the two generally agree on Logan.  However, things get a little messier when they review Kong: Skull Island.  When the dust settles. they review the Blast from the Past, Capote, before moving on to the greatest superhero characters of all-time.  Send feedback to rad.notions@gmail.com and please rate/review on iTunes.  Enjoy!


2017 FFL Regular Season Draft

March 2, 2017

It seems like just yesterday the guys began what they consider the "Fantasy Film League" - a combination of Fantasy Sports and Movies.  There have been plenty of changes since the original season, but this year marks the biggest change of all.  Out with the old and in with the new as the guys try a new "normalized" scoring system that will make for a more apples-to-apples comparison.  All the changes are explained in detail within the podcast and the majority of the episode is dedicated to counting down their most anticipated films of the year as both pick 10 movies and 2 alternates (tiebreakers).  Take a listen to hear their thoughts on each movie (including some of the blockbusters left off their draft boards).  Please rate/review on iTunes and enjoy!


The Lego Batman Movie/The Good, The Bad, The Ugly/Mount Rushmore: Animated Characters

February 13, 2017

Although they're still between "seasons," the guys look at one of their favorite properities: Batman.  After reviewing The Lego Batman Movie, they shift focus to the Western classic The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.  Finally, they end things with another Mount Rushmore.  This time, they focus on animated characters and look at movies ranging from Disney originals to Pixar films to even The Lord of the Rings.  Please rate/review on iTunes and send any feedback before the Draft episode next podcast!  Enjoy!


Silence/Apocalypse Now/Long-Awaited Sequel Studio PItch

February 1, 2017

In this week's podcast, the guys look at Martin Scorsese's latest film, Silence, before wrapping up another two categories in the FFL league.  With all 20 movies now seen and reviewed, they focus their attention to non-FFL related topics, like Apocalypse Now and a brand new Studio Pitch.  Be sure to stick around to the end as they try to convince the audience to greenlight a sequel of their choice.  Please rate/review on iTunes and send feedback to rad.notions@gmail.com or visit us on Twitter @RadNotionsRadio.  Enjoy!


A Monster Calls/Live By Night/North By Northwest/Top 10 Movies of 2016

January 19, 2017

In another long podcast (sorry guys!), the guys pack it full of great movies.  Not only do they give their glowing reviews of A Monster Calls and the Blast from the Past pick, North By Northwest (along with a not-so-glowing review of Live By Night), but they find time to review 2016 as a whole.  This includes their 10 favorite movies of the year.  Although there is some crossover, they cover a wide range of films from early releasing indie films to some of the awards bait films that landed on most end-of-year lists.  Check out the podcast and please rate/review on iTunes and send feedback to rad.notions@gmail.com.  Enjoy!


Assassin’s Creed/Passengers/La La Land/Fences/Gangs of New York/Sci Fi Mt. Rushmore

January 5, 2017

The guys had it easy on the previous podcast when they reviewed three fresh flicks.  This time around, they have a record four - Assassin's Creed, Passengers, La La Land, and Fences - before hitting up Gangs of New York.  They also give a full update of the FFL Scoreboard (locking in three of the nine categories) before having a quick conversation about the best Sci Fi heroes.  If that's not enough, Scott also reviewed 10 movies in his record-breaking Movie Minute segment.  There's lots of to hear but some great conversation on a number of movies.  Check it out and please rate/review on iTunes.  Enjoy!


Rogue One/Manchester by the Sea/Nocturnal Animals/The Apartment/Mt. Rushmore Psychos

December 22, 2016

For the third week in a row, the guys countdown a wide array of movies.  Before they even get to the Final Act, they discuss the following films: Sully, Miss Peregine's Home for Peculiar Children, In a Valley of Violence, Thank You For Playing, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Manchester by the Sea, Nocturnal Animals, and the Blast From the Past pick The Apartment.  In there somewhere, they go over the Golden Globe nominees and talk about how the newly released films have fared since their release.  To cap things off, they countdown the most iconic psychopaths of all-time in a new segment titled "Mount Rushmore."  It's a long cast but worth the listen!  Enjoy and send any/all feedback to rad.notions@gmail.com and vote on the website (radnotions.com).  Oh, and have a Merry Christmas you filthy animal!


Moana/Allied/Loving/Good Morning Vietnam/Book Studio Pitch

December 9, 2016

As we creep closer to the end of the year, the podcasts keep getting more and more robust.  This time around, we have a rare Fresh Flick triple feature, which includes Scott's Moana and Loving along with Jordan's Allied.  The guys don't really agree on the quality of these three films as much as they fall head-over-heels for Robin Williams' performance in the Blast From the Past - Good Morning Vietnam.  As if that wasn't enough, the two tackle another Studio Pitch as Jordan tries to even the rivalry up at 2-2.  Check out the whole cast and make sure to rate/review on iTunes and send feedback to rad.notions@gmail.com or on Twitter @RadNotionsRadio
