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 Film Stage contributor Mike Anton. We begin by discussing the supposedly “unadaptable books” turned into films in spite of the moniker. Then, we fight it out over the divisive new film Cloud Atlas. To end we take discuss the films coming to theaters and DVD in the coming week, which include Safety Not Guaranteed, Wreck-It Ralph, and Flight. Then we give you our random recommendations of things we watched on our own this week.
