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.
