Episode Summary:


FadCast 81 – Online Movie Review Aggregators ft. Joshua Butler.

Today the FadCast talks about online Movie Review aggregators, like Rotten Tomatoes and MetaCritic, highlighting their pros and cons, their effect on an audience’s film and/or television experience, and how they may impact the decision making of studios and networks. Special celebrity guest, Television director Joshua Butler from projects like ‘The Vampire Diaries’ and Syfy’s new ‘The Magicians’ joins us to weigh in on the subject and give his own perspective. We also briefly discuss the latest action packed trailer for ‘X-Men: Apocalypse‘ and the validity of speculation that Jared Leto’s Joker from the upcoming ‘Suicide Squad’ may very-well be Jason Todd, the fallen Robin seen in the ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice‘ trailers.
