Welcome to a very special, very weird episode of  our official podcast, The Film Stage Show. This week staff writer Danny King and I are joined once again by associate editor Nick Newman, who came to us live via cell phone en route to our editor’s wedding. The three of us talk about nerd protectiveness in the wake of bad reactions to negative reviews of The Amazing Spider-Man, then we review the the male stripper drama, Magic Mike. To end we give our picks for upcoming theatrical and home video releases, including The Hunter, Savages, and The Amazing Spider-Man. Then, as a special treat, we give you our top selections of things we watched on our own this week. Stream below or click to download (right-click and save as…).
