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!
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!
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 email@example.com or visit us on Twitter @RadNotionsRadio. Enjoy!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Enjoy!
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!
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 email@example.com and vote on the website (radnotions.com). Oh, and have a Merry Christmas you filthy animal!
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.

There have been some packed podcasts here at RadNotions Radio but this one may set a new record. Beginning with the critically-claimed sci-fi film Arrival and ending with the Harry Potter spin-off, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, this would be a busy week if these were the only two films talked about. However, the guys ramp up their reviews as they tackle these two films, Ang Lee's latest (Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk), the Blast from the Past (Philadelphia), and the Western Hell or High Water. As if that wasn't enough, they also give a studio pitch of their own as they try to outdo the magnificent film, Arrival. It's all in the latest episode of RadNotions Radio. Please rate/review on iTunes and send any feedback to email@example.com. Enjoy!
In the 7th Marvel review since the inception of the podcast, the guys talk about how Doctor Strange does (and doesn't) live up to expectations. They also review Ghost Dog (Scott's Blast from the Past pick) and talk about original films. This leads into their discussion of "Top Shelf" movies where they eliminate movies from Top 5 contention in the future. It's a shorter cast this time but every second is worth it...especially if you like poking fun at Benedict Cumberbatch's name. Enjoy and please send feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org and/or hit us up on Twitter @RadNotionsRadio.
In the final podcast before the guys hit prime FFL season, they review just two films - Scott's The Accountant and Scott's Blast from the Past pick Young Frankenstein. Besides these reviews, they recap the podcast by looking at some of the film franchises that need to end. Please take a listen and send any and all feedback to either email@example.com or @RadNotionsRadio (via Twitter). Also, vote the website for RadScores and next podcast's Final Act. Have a good Halloween!
