Operation Kino #29: Moneyball Reviewed And Drive's Bad Audience Reaction Discussed

2011-09-23 09:54:07
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.
