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 Jeremy Smith (aka Mr. Beaks of Ain’t It Cool News), to talk about the merits of what makes one version of a film more correct than others. Then we review the little movie that could, Kenneth Lonergan’s Margaret (including the extended cut). To end we take a look at the dearth of quality films hitting theaters and DVD in the coming week. Then we give you our top selections of things we watched on our own this week.
