Operation Kino #59: The Lucky One, Chimpanzee, And The Ongoing Segregation Of Hollywood
This week on Operation Kino we're cuing up the soft focus and the Tim Allen narration as we review both the Zac Efron weepie The Lucky One and the new nature documentary Chimpanzee. From there we launch into a conversation inspired by another of the week's new releases, Think Like A Man, and wonder why there's such a sharp divide between "white movies" and "black movies," and why the film industry has such a hard time desegregating itself while TV has had no such problem. (Much of this conversation is inspired by this Vulture piece, which is worth a read) But before any of that, we have a lightning round inspired by Zac Efron, and then tidbits, in which Da7e talks about the comic Sweet Tooth, Patches catches up with the short-lived series Terriers, David gives a brief preview of his excitement about The Avengers and Katey is on board with the new HBO series Girls. We end, as always, with your lightning round answers for dessert.
Take a listen below and find your downloading options; for more from all of us, you can follow the show (@opkino), Da7e (@da7e), David (@davidehrlich or @CriterionCorner), Patches (@misterpatches) and Katey (@kateyrich) on Twitter.
