Operation Kino 83: Taken 2 vs. Frankenweenie, Plus Digital vs. Film

This week on Operation Kino, we've got a highly specialized set of skills that we will use to bring our beloved pets back from the dead, as we review both Taken 2 and Frankenweenie, two of this weekend's new releases. From there we dive into the conversation that seems to be fascinating a lot of critics these days: digital vs. film, and whether it matters that actual, physical film seems to be dying, whether for filmmaking or projecting movies. But before that we've got a lightning round inspired by Taken 2 and then tidbits, in which Patches catches up with the classic Tokyo Story, our special guest Jordan Hoffman describes the Fantastic Fest experience, David marvels at the awfulness of Lee Daniels's The Paperboy, and Katey is cautiously optimistic about Seth MacFarlane as Oscar host. We end, as always, with your lightning round answers for dessert.
