It’s time for another episode of Now Conspiring, the weekly podcast on all things…anyway.
This week, we review Pete’s Dragon and Sausage Party, which are two movies that couldn’t be any more different. We also discuss Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Adonis’s ill-fated Harry Potter fan theory getting roasted on Snarcasm, and the state of modern film criticism. Don’t worry, the segue works.
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: Who are your favorite film critics and why?
