Operation Kino 123: Ghooooosts!
This week, as the world braces for Comic-Con, we talk about the boycott of Ender's Game and the outrage over author Orson Scott Card's views on gay rights. Does it mean anything to boycott a movie based on the views of the book's author? Will it accomplish anything? We also talk about Katey finally catching up on Game of Thrones, Da7e wonders if you have to believe in ghosts to be scared by ghost movies, we remember our fondest Comic-Con experiences, and we pick our favorite squirm-inducing moments of movie violence.
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.
We also welcome your feedback as we transition into this new format, and there are lots of new places you can find us! Find us and like us at our Facebook page or call and leave us a voicemail at (914) 410-6450-- if we like it, we may play it on an upcoming show.
