This Rotten Week: Predicting The Hangover III, Fast & Furious 6 And Epic Reviews
Well, thank goodness for long-running franchises that keep pumping out movies. If not for them we’d have almost nothing to even talk about this week. But alas, the gang’s back with another hangover, another gang has the need for speed and we get an epic flick
The Hangover Part III: Win T-Shirts, A Bottle Opener, And The Biggest Stuffed Giraffe You'll Ever Need
It all ends. The time has come for the epic conclusion of what's now the Wolfpack Trilogy, but if you think that the Hangover series is going to go out quietly, you clearly haven't been paying attention. In The Hangover Part III, in theaters on Thursday, May 23, the guys find themselves back in Vegas, forced to find out the truth behind what really happened at that ill-fated bachelor party six years ago
Why Benedict Cumberbatch Will Always Be A Better Weirdo Than A Leading Man
The question is which way will he go? Will he try and be some amalgamation of Brad Pitt, Russell Crowe, Matt Damon, George Clooney and Jake Gyllenhaal? Or will he try and be some amalgamation of Philip Seymour Hoffman, William H Macy, Paul Giamatti, Steve Buscemi and Jeff Daniels?
Operation Kino 114 Review: Star Trek Into The Nerdiest Star Trek Into Darkness Review
This week we've all been handed red shirts and sent to work in engineering-- which means that, inevitably, not all of us will survive the episode as we review Star Trek Into Darkness. In this spoiler free-for-all conversation we're joined by certified Trek fanatic Jordan Hoffman to talk about the latest film from J.J. Abrams
Why Star Trek Into Darkness And Iron Man 3 Opened Overseas First
As movies like Iron Man 3 and Oblivion proved, we’ll show up when the studio finally opens the movie here. Shane Black’s sequel has banked $298M domestically to date, but a whopping $685M overseas. We just aren’t the powerful movie launch pad we once were, sad as that has become to admit.
Star Trek Into Darkness: Was The Mystery Box Worth It?
Abrams is famous for his "Mystery Box" approach to storytelling, the idea being that it's better not to know what you're getting before walking into a movie. And though there are surprises in Star Trek Into Darkness that you probably won't know in advance, there are also parts of the film that Abrams went to a lot of effort to keep secret… and don't seem to matter all that much when you know them
To 3D Or Not To 3D: Buy The Right Star Trek Into Darkness Ticket
Unbelievably, J.J. Abrams' first Star Trek opened before Avatar, in a time when not every summer blockbuster was expected to come out in 3D, and before movies were put through the post-conversion wringer to cash in. Four years later things are surprisingly different, and Star Trek Into Darkness has succumbed to the spirit of the times, arriving with post-converted 3D and a whole lot of ads trumpeting the 3D experience. But is it worth it?
The Star Trek Experiment: Can J.J. Abrams Convert A Sci-Fi Hater?
this week it was clearly time for the student to become the master, so Katey forced Mack into a sit-down anyway. Mack agreed to watch the first Abrams Star Trek and test a theory the rest of us had that the movie's energy and openness to non-Trekkies would persuade him to get on board. After all, Abrams is going to have the exact same challenge when he takes over the reins of Star Wars.
Operation Kino 114: What Does Scarcity Even Mean These Days Anyway?
This week we wonder why people pay for something that's "rare" in an era where anything-- including those fancy Mondo posters-- can be replicated infinitely. If that sounds confusing, trust us, Da7e explains it. Plus discussions about the indie film Zero Charisma and John McCain's scheme to fix television, a listener voicemail question about movies opening earlier overseas than in the United States, and a lightning round inspired by Star Trek Into Darkness

Watch: 10 Reasons We Love Benedict Cumberbatch
We've been on Team Cumberbatch for years. (There are dissenters, but more on that later.) But in case you aren't yet on our team or maybe don't get what all this buzz about the man with the very British name is all about, we've decided to break it down for you with ten reasons we can't get enough of Benedict Cumberbatch, complete with video guide.
What Will Be The Summer's Biggest Movie? We Place Our Bets
Iron Man 3 is an enormous hit right now, nearing $1 billion at the worldwide box office and ruling the American charts for the second weekend in a row. The Great Gatsby opened just last week and managed to stun nearly everybody by making $51 million. Summer movies are there to entertain us, sure, but they're really all about the money, and even more than we want to know the true identity of Star Trek's villain or what's really going on in Edgar Wright's The World's End
