Reel Review features engaging conversations about film and television with interesting folks and USC experts from across disciplines (public policy, governance, theatre, and cinema) to look at visual storytelling, media literacy, diversity, and the public good.

Hosted by Erroll Southers, Reel Review reminds us that film and TV are powerful and passionate mediums that not only entertain, but reflect and comment on our society. Culture, policy, and politics affect our everyday lives, ideas about how we live, and how we live together. It also influences what we watch, as well as what we take away from those programs.

We want to be smarter about the images and stories we see, and how we can be better together.

2016 brought us back to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in the prequel to the beloved books and movies: Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them. 6 fictional months and two real life years later, we return to in Yates' Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. Reviews have been decidedly mixed. What do our geeks think of the new addition to the Potterverse? 

Voldemort-lite or complex look at the "Banality of Evil?"

If you haven’t seen the movie, beware, this conversation has spoilers.

Host Jonathan Schwartz is joined by Alex Ago and Aubrey Hicks.
