Operation Kino 81: The Perks Of Being A Wallflower And Loving A League Of Their Own

This week on Operation Kino, we can't believe you're also into The Smiths and Rocky Horror Picture Show, as we review the new high school movie The Perks of Being A Wallflower. From there we jump into a conversation inspired by Katey's manic desire to have more people recognize the greatness of A League of Their Own, discussing potentially B-level or not "great" movies that many women love, and why won't talk about them as much as, say, Conan the Barbarian. Before any of that, though, there's tidbits about more Netflix documentaries, Breaking Amish, the new movie Dredd and the Titanic Blu-ray release. We end, as always, with your lightning round answers for dessert.
