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!
As we get back into the swing of the FFL, this week focuses on two movies (one for Jordan, one for Scott - kind of). The two Fresh Films on the cast are Birth of a Nation and The Girl on the Train both of which feature a Hot Seat review. After a quick FFL update, the guys focus on the 2:20 minute one-take film Victoria then use that as a springboard to talk about some of the best movie gimmicks. Check out the entire podcast and send feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org and/or connect on Twitter @RadNotionsRadio. Enjoy!
The FFL didn't technically continue with this podcast but the guys don't skip a beat as they review the recently-released Western re-remake, The Magnificent Seven. After giving that film their best Good, Bad, and Ugly treatment, they turn their attention to the little-known documentary Dear Zachary: A Film to a Son About his Father (be forewarned: this movie will kill your psyche). At the end, they give the listeners what they want: another studio pitch. In this rendition, the two give their best movie ideas related to the found footage genre. Be ready for some conspiracy theories, bank heists, and even more Dark Knight references. Enjoy and please connect via Twitter (@RadNotionsRadio) or via iTunes (rate/review).
As we continue to make small changes to the show, this podcast introduces our new segment, titled The Studio Pitch. Before we get to our Tom Hanks Studio Pitch (which is worth the listen alone), we review the first FFL Playoff film, Scott's The Light Between Oceans. We also review the Edgar Wright-directed film Hot Fuzz. It's certainly not a long podcast, but it's full of some insightful stuff. Please rate/review on iTunes (please please please!!) and send feedback to email@example.com or by following us on Twitter @RadNotionsRadio. Enjoy!
Another week, another packed podcast. In this one, Jordan goes on the hot seat for his review of War Dogs, then Scott and him give their assessment of Southside With You by introducing a new segment called The Report Card. Then, after a quick review of the Japanese film 13 Assassins, they get to the real intense part: the 2016 Fantasy Film League Playoff Draft. Go inside the War Room with the guys as they choose what they think are going to be the 10 best films of the year according to critics and fans. Make sure to devote a good amount of time to the podcast and send any and all feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org or through Twitter (@RadNotionsRadio). Enjoy!
The guys spice things up this week as they add a little bit of change to their regular review sessions. After a lengthy movie minute, they have a free-for-all review of Suicide Squad before playing Devil's Advocate with the Disney remake Pete's Dragon. Then they update the FFL scoreboard and head to a Good, Bad, and Ugly rendition of The Raid 2. Then they finally cap things off with one of the final Top 5s (explained within) when they look at their "Dream Team." Enjoy and please send feedback/suggestions to email@example.com. Enjoy!!
Although we say this a lot: this one is a packed podcast. The guys bring in their resident Star Trek expert as they discuss the newest Trek film, Star Trek Beyond, before moving onto Scott's other big release, Jason Bourne. They also touch on wildcard tiebreakers Miles Ahead and A Bigger Splash before giving a more thorough review of the film Captain Fantastic. In the Blast from the Past category, they revisit the 1982 classic, E.T., and recount their favorite space movies. Give it a listen and send feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org. Enjoy!!
Sorry for the delay! With both hosts out of town, they had to get a little creative with the release schedule. The result is packed podcast that reviews Independence Day: Resurgence, The BFG, Demolition, and Iron Giant. To go along with their retroactive review of Iron Giant, they also recount their favorite movies with social commentary. Thanks for being patient and feel free to send feedback to email@example.com. On a scheduling note, the next podcast will release right around August 2nd or 3rd. Enjoy!
