This week on Operation Kino we're taking our very hubristically named spaceship and heading off into the great beyond, as we review the new sci-fi epic Prometheus. And because this movie is so big and complicated, we devote Segment 3 to a more detailed and spoiler-filled conversation about the film and the many questions it leaves unanswered. Before any of that, though, there's a lightning round inspired by Madagascar 3 and then tidbits, in which Da7e wants to rid the world of Fifty Shades of Grey, David breaks down the two types of mystery stories as it relates to BBC's Sherlock, Katey likes Greta Gerwig much more than her movie Lola Versus, and Patches witnesses a group-sourced, shot-by-shot remake of Star Wars, and swears it's actually great. 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.
