David, Devindra, Jeff, and Hoai-Tran Bui discuss The Meg’s PG-13 rating, the pleasures of Castle Rock, and the brilliance of HBO’s Succession. Be sure to read Hoai-Tran’s pieces about what Crazy Rich Asians gets right about Asian-American identity, and why it’s good that the film doesn’t try to break stereotypes. Also, check out Jason Concepcion’s piece on the anti-capitalist message of Succession.
