Welcome to the latest episode of our official podcast, The Film Stage Show. This week staff writer Danny King, associate editor Nick Newman, and I are joined by Jordan Hoffman (of ScreenCrush, SlashFilm, NextMovie & more) to talk about the recent backlash against movie critics. Then we review arguably the biggest movie of the summer, Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises.

Then we give you our top selections of things we watched on our own this week. Make sure to listen all the way to the end for details on our Blu-ray giveaway of The Deep Blue Sea!
