This week on Operation Kino, we don't have enough time to pay the bus fare, so we're sticking around to review the new Andrew Niccol thriller In Time, then moving on to a segment three discussion of Halloween and the kinds of movies we find scary. Before that, though, we kick things off with a lightning round devoted to Shakespeare adaptations (or were they written by Shakespeare at all? who knows!), then move on to tidbits, where Da7e is worried about the old Muppeteers being unhappy with the new version of The Muppets, David wants you all to see The Rum Diary, Patches has a few words to say about the new indie Natural Selection, and Katey wishes anybody would watch Bored to Death, because it's great. We end, as always, with your lightning round answers for dessert.

This week on Operation Kino, the movie industry has let us down severely, with pretty much nothing in wide release this week holding our interest. Instead we review a movie opening on just 4 screens this weekend, the very worthy Martha Marcy May Marlene, then dedicate segment three to our first-ever trivia game! Find out how David, Dave and Patches fare when quizzed on memorable movie quotes from this year's biggest hits. Before that, though, we've got a lightning round dedicated to on-screen revolutions, and then tidbits, in which David talks about the arty Emily Browning movie Sleeping Beauty, Katey talks in vague terms about Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Patches gives you the rundown on New York Comic Con and the wonderment that is Tom Hiddleston, and Da7e has a bone to pick with Target and their strategy of releasing the new Harry Potter documentary with the Blu-Ray. We wrap things up, as always, with your Lightning Round answers for dessert.

This week on Operation Kino, three of us have seen the new prequel to The Thing but how do you know which three? How do you even know who to trust? You can find that out in our review segment, which leads into a wrap-up of the New York Film Festival, including David waxing rhapsodic about some foreign films you actually will get the chance to see at some point. Before any of that, though, there's our Lightning Round inspired by Footloose, then tidbits, in which Katey is looking forward to next spring's Titanic re-release, David is amazed by a work-in-progress screening of Martin Scorsese's Hugo, Patches has no idea why anyone would read the Game of Thrones books, and Da7e shares what he learned by doing a lot of reading over the summer. We wrap things up, as always, with your Lightning Round answers for dessert.

And if you're in the New York area, for New York Comic Con or no, come hang out with the entire Operation Kino crew TONIGHT, Friday October 14; we'll be at the Reunion Surf Bar at 44th Street and 9th Avenue starting at 8 pm, and would love to meet anyone who's been listening to the show.

This week on Operation Kino, David is off avenging the death of his father, or chasing down the dog who ate his homework, or something-- whatever he's up to, he's not on the podcast. Lucky for us we found an excellent replacement, drafting the Slashfilmcast's Devindra Hardawar to help us review Real Steel, and in segment three talk about political movies, as inspired by The Ides of March. Before that, though, we've got a lightning round (very) loosely inspired by The Human Centipede 2, then tidbits, in which Da7e runs down what's happening in comics, Katey is very excited about having just seen The Fly, Devindra really likes what he seems from the new Showtime series Homeland, and Patches learns a few things from writing recaps of Two and a Half Men. We end, as always, with your lightning round answers for dessert.

This week on Operation Kino, it's the throwdown you've all been waiting for, as Katey and David stake out opposite sides of the debate to review 50/50, with Patches nervously occupying the middle ground between them. OK, so it's not exactly the kind of battle royale we had back in the days of X-Men: First Class and Transformers, but it's a lively conversation that leads us into our Segment Three, talking about the value of physically owning movies, and whether David's massive collection of Criterion DVDs is impressive or just a compulsion. We start, though, with a Lightning Round dedicated to cinematic phone calls, and then we move into tidbits, where Da7e runs down what's happening in fall TV, Katey wants to make sure you know about the new indie Take Shelter, David floats a possible new theory about the sinking of the Titanic, and Patches tries to recover from having just seen Kenneth Lonergan's Margaret.

This week on Operation Kino, we had an extremely hard time deciding whether or not to discuss the merits of the new Taylor Lautner vehicle Abduction or figure out what's up with that flash-in-the-pan Brad Pitt in Moneyball. OK, just kidding-- obviously we reviewed Moneyball, even though Patches and Katey had just gotten back from a screening of Abduction and had Lautner on the brain. After Moneyball we took a look at the box office fortunes of the movie we reviewed last week, Drive, and wondered if studios have an obligation to advertise their movies as truthfully as possible. But first there's a Lightning Round dedicated to dull-as-dishwater action stars like Lautner, and then tidbits, in which Da7e plugs the indie film Archie's Final Project, David is surviving the New York Film Festival, Patches gives us a postmortem on Abduction and Katey talks about saving Africa through the power of being white in Machine Gun Preacher. We end, as always, with your Lightning Round answers for dessert.

This week on Operation Kino, the charisma of Ryan Gosling is so powerful that we were forced to surrender one member and bring in just three of us to review Drive. OK, in fact Da7e hadn't seen Drive and couldn't make the recording, but Patches, David and Katey managed to soldier on without him somehow. After our Drive review we caught up on the Toronto Film Festival, where Katey had been for the past week, and wondered why a festival with 300 movies seems to only get conversation about 25 of them. But first, we kicked things off with a lightning round devoted to animated Disney musicals, and then went into tidbits, in which David gets a good laugh out of the end of Entourage, Patches wonders why his Straw Dogs audience didn't get the point, and Katey wants you to remember how awesome the cast of Contagion really is.

This week on Operation Kino, we're coming to you live! Well, we were if you attended our live show last Monday, where we got to be part of the inaugural year of the New York Hell's Kitchen Film Festival and bring the usual Operation Kino hijinks and slight disorganization to a live audience. Lucky for you, if you weren't there, we recorded the whole thing for this week's podcast, and you can listen below. We've changed up the format slightly for the sake of the live audience, but kick things off as usual with a Lightning Round dedicated to film festivals, then tidbits that are focused around a single theme: what we've learned at the movies this year, and what we're looking forward to this fall. Then, instead of the usual review and Segment 3, we bring in the audience for something called Film Court, which allows us to debate the relative merits of Steven Spielberg and Christopher Nolan, plus throwing down about whether or not we still need movie theaters. We end with the audience's lightning round answers for dessert.

And if you're still in New York and want to check out the Hell's Kitchen Film Festival for yourself, our very own Matt Patches will be conducting a Q&A on the closing night of the festival for the film Lost in Italy, with the movie's director and star Glen Murphy. It's happening this Sunday, September 11, at 7 p.m. at The Producer's Club. Check it out and tell Matt Patches that Operation Kino sent you!

This week on Operation Kino, we've got too much movie reviewing energy for one movie to handle, so we took on two: The Debt, the new Nazi-hunter spy movie, and Warrior, the upcoming mixed martial arts drama. We follow that with a Segment Three about our own movie-watching habits when we're at home, and wondering if the ease of using services like Netflix Watch Instantly or Hulu Plus means we don't watch as many new, out-there movies as we used to. First, though, there's a lightning round in which we join Hollywood in their revisionist history, then tidbits in which David shares what he's learned after two days of film school, Patches defends George Lucas (I know!), Katey shares what she learned watching the VMAs via Twitter, and Da7e wants Showtime to do a good job with their Under the Dome series. We end, as always, with your lightning round answers for dessert.

And one more reminder! This Monday, September 5, we'll be doing a LIVE SHOW as part of the New York Hell's Kitchen Film Festival. The FREE show happens at 7 pm at The Producer's Club, located at 358 West 44th Street. There will be a special "Film Court" debate format plus the usual lightning round silliness, and also swag, prizes, and who knows what else. If you think you'll make it please RSVP to our Facebook invite.

This week on Operation Kino, we're doing things a little differently. It's been 25 episodes since we first started keeping official count, and we decided to take this little anniversary as an opportunity to change up our format and tell you not just what we think of this week's crop of new releases, but how we think about movies in general. All four of us came prepared with one movie that we don't just love, but that we think explains something about the way we look at movies. We're calling this format the "Quarter Quell," which will sound familiar if you've read The Hunger Games-- don't worry, our version is far less violent. David starts things off with Paul Schrader's Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters, which he fits in with the idea of film presenting "ecstatic truth"; Patches adores Groundhog Day not just because it's funny and well-made, but because it's a movie he can show anyone; Da7e watches Fight Club as an example of how characters can develop even in a really non-traditional narrative; and Katey closes things out with The Apartment as a way to get a glimpse into a far-away time, and also just a damn well-written movie.

But even with the new format, some things stay the same--we start things off with a summer-ending lightning round, and end, as always, with your lightning round answers for dessert.

Don't forget that on Monday, September 5, we'll be doing a LIVE SHOW as part of the New York Hell's Kitchen Film Festival. We don't have all the details just yet, but the show will be around 7 or 8 p.m. at The Producer's Club, located at 358 West 44th Street. Stay tuned for more details and come out and see us!

This week on Operation Kino, our reviews are bit of a mishmash, as Katey and David hash out their feelings for One Day for a bit, and Katey strikes out on her own to tell you what she thought of Fright Night (Patches and Da7e sat out this movie week-- on some level we can't blame them). We follow that with a Segment Three devoted to the way Hollywood is strip-mining the 80s for movie remakes, and pick out a few 80s titles we think absolutely cannot possibly be remade, period. First, though, there's a lightning round inspired by the swordplay of Conan the Barbarian, then tidbits in which David talks about having his short film "Proposals" in the New York Hell's Kitchen Film Festival, Patches is severaly disappointed by the Off-Broadway revival of Rent, Katey reports from Lebowski Fest and Da7e wonders if the doomed Johnny Depp Lone Ranger movie might work after all. We end, as always, with your lightning round answers for dessert.

We've also got a very exciting announcement! On Monday, September 5, we'll be doing a LIVE SHOW as part of the New York Hell's Kitchen Film Festival.

This week on Operation Kino, all four members of the usual crew are back together to hold hands and weep quietly into our handkerchiefs, as we review The Help. From there we've got a Segment Three inspired by the weekend's other big release, 30 Minutes or Less, in which we talk about movies based on true stories, whether there's ever such a thing as "too soon," and how far David would go to have Werner Herzog make a movie about his tragic death. Before any of that, though, we've got a lightning round dedicated to awesome movie deaths, and tidbits in which Dave doesn't think the Dark Knight Rises set photos are spoilers, David wonders how on earth a movie like Our Idiot Brother qualified as a Sundance success, Patches wants your dating advice and Katey shares the harrowing tale of how she survived Glee 3D. We end, as always, with your lightning round answers for dessert.

On this week's Operation Kino, we're once again down a member, as Da7e is taking a much-needed vacation and celebrating his birthday far, far away from us. So once again we've broken the mold and brought in a guest, inviting Popular Mechanics writer Erin McCarthy to join us for a review of Rise of the Planet of the Apes, then a discussion of motion-capture and performance-capture technology, both as seen in this movie and as a template for making films in the future. Erin happens to be an expert about it thanks to her job, so she's probably the best guest we could have gotten for this episode. First, though, there's a Lightning Round inspired by the new indie Bellflower, then tidbits, in which Erin sings the praises of Shark Week, David defends one new video game as a work of art, Patches thinks The Change-Up is the funniest movie of the year, and Katey is blown away by the book A Visit From The Goon Squad. We end, as always, with your lightning round answers for dessert.

On this week's Operation Kino, we've got our first-ever special guest! With David Ehrlich still marooned on the West Coast in the wake of Comic Con, we brought in another survivor of the nerd-stravaganza, UGO's Jordan Hoffman, to help us recover from the madness and also review the movie that premiered for the geeky hordes in San Diego last week, Cowboys & Aliens. Before that, though, we've got our lightning round dedicated to cinematic love triangles, and then get into tidbits, where Katey and Jordan relive their respective highlights of Comic Con, Da7e gets into how much Ridley Scott's Prometheus might be an Alien prequel after all, and Patches really wants you to think about seeing The Smurfs. Really. For segment three we're on a bit of a tangent, getting into the ages of movie stars, whether actors can be too old for given roles, and hey, when did Harrison Ford start seeming so damn old anyway?
