Operation Kino Podcast #46: Haywire Reviewed And Kill List Discussed
This week on Operation Kino, it's finally time for women to take over the world. No, Katey isn't killing off the rest of her podcast crew, but we are reviewing Haywire, the new Steven Soderbergh thriller starring ass-kicking MMA fighter Gina Carano. After that we finally dig into a movie we've been dying to talk about for weeks, as we have a spoiler-filled and fairly contentious conversation about Ben Wheatley's mysterious thriller Kill List. We warn you about this in the show, but we can't emphasize enough how important it is to see the film before listening to our conversation. Before any of that, though, we have a lightning round devoted to directors we want to retire, then tidbits, in which David defends the legacy of Shakespeare in Love against Saving Private Ryan, Patches is reading the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: 1969 comic, Da7e is looking for reasons to keep watching Pan Am, and Katey has a few words in defense of Red Tails. 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.
