Operation Kino #60: The Meandering Five-Year Engagement And The Changing Moviegoing Experience
This week on Operation Kino we're dragging our heels on our way to the altar, as all four of us have actually seen and gather to review The Five-Year Engagement. From there we pick up on some of the chatter from the movie theater owner trade convention Cinema Con and talk about some of the proposed changes for movie theaters, and whether or not it makes sense to freak out every time they try to change something about the moviegoing experience. Before any of that, though, we have a lightning round inspired by the New York City mayhem in Safe and then tidbits, in which Da7e thinks reality shows like The Voice are the modern equivalent of late-night talk shows, Patches is a big fan of Pirates! A Band of Misfits, David finds a few gems amid the usual mess of the Tribeca Film Festival, and Katey officially gives up on trying to like Game of Thrones. We end, as always, with your lightning round answers for dessert.
