Dan Harmon's Harmontown Podcast Is So Brilliant It Has Its Own Documentary

Dan Harmon was once the showrunner and creator of Community, one of television’s greatest comedies, then he got fired. The show turned to mediocrity, a shadow version of itself, and before NBC rehired him to take back the reigns of his creation Dan Harmon had nothing better to do than start doing a weekly podcast from the Nerdmelt Theater in the back of Meltdown Comics.

This week on Operation Kino we're getting right down to business: there are a ton of movies coming to theaters this weekend, and in particular two kid-friendly movies that are both worth your time (actually there are 3, but we didn't review Arthur Christmas this time).

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.

Operation Kino Podcast #33: Martha Marcy May Marlene Reviewed, And A Trivia Round!

>Subscribe to Operation Kino and everything else Kino Katey with iTunes! And if you like us, please please write us a review!<




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.

Operation Kino Podcast #32: The Thing Reviewed and New York Film Festival Discussed

>Subscribe to Operation Kino and everything else Kino Katey with iTunes! And if you like us, please please write us a review!<




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.

Operation Kino Podcast #31: Real Steel Reviewed And Political Movies Discussed

>Subscribe to Operation Kino and everything else Kino Katey with iTunes! And if you like us, please please write us a review!<




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.

Operation Kino Podcast #30: 50/50 Reviewed And Owning Movies Discussed

>Subscribe to Operation Kino and everything else Kino Katey with iTunes! And if you like us, please please write us a review!<


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.

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

>Subscribe to Operation Kino and everything else Kino Katey with iTunes! And if you like us, please please write us a review!<


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.

Operation Kino Podcast #28: Drive Reviewed And The Toronto Film Festival Discussed

>Subscribe to Operation Kino and everything else Kino Katey with iTunes! And if you like us, please please write us a review!<


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.

Operation Kino Podcast #25: The Quarter Quell

>Subscribe to Operation Kino and everything else Kino Katey with iTunes!<


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!

Take a listen below and find all your downloading options; for more from all of us, you can follow the show (@opkino), Da7e (@da7e), David (@davidehrlich or @CriterionCorner), Patches (@misterpatches) and me (@kateyrich) on Twitter.

And one more thing-- if you've been listening to the show and enjoying it, please write a review of it on iTunes! We'd greatly appreciate it.
