Does Counterprogramming Work? 11 David Vs. Goliath Box Office Stories

There are few things Hollywood movie studios do more than obsess over release dates. They are put together years in advance like a giant jigsaw puzzle. In theory, you would think every single movie would scratch and claw to get the easiest competition possible, but sometimes, the best thing a flick can do is find the biggest, most splashy entry on the calendar and position itself as counter-programming.

The 10 Most Disappointing Movies Of 2011

There were plenty of movies from this year that I absolutely loved and others that I absolutely hated, but there’s a very special category that exists between both of those ends: the ones that left me utterly disappointed. While I always enter a movie theater hoping to love the hell out of whatever I’m watching, the truth is that there are some films that I spend a lot of time thinking about and anticipating, only to be left frustrated at the end.

Super 8 Casting Associate Discovered To Be A Convicted Child Molester

Much in the way that parents likely hope to send their kids to school, or to some extra-curricular activity without having to fear that the adult they’ve left their child with might be a sexual predator, it’s probably a fair assumption to say the same applies to parents of children in the entertainment industry.

Super 8 Unspools On Blu-Ray And DVD November 22nd

In a summer of super-heroes and sequels, Super 8 stood out. Whether you were on board with J.J. Abrams ode to Spielberg and the "Amblin-style" movies many of us grew up with or not, there's no question that Super 8 was ambitious and original. If it failed, it certainly didn't do so for lack of trying. Thankfully, I'm in the camp that thought it worked remarkably well, so I'm giving thanks that Super 8 has been announced for Blu-ray and DVD this November 22nd.

Bruce Greenwood's Secret Role In Super 8 Revealed

So now that we know Greenwood had a secret role-- and a really major one at that-- where was Abrams stalwart Greg Grunberg? He found a way to include the actor in Star Trek only as a voice, and you'd think among the many townspeople in Super 8 there would have been space for him

Weekend Box Office - Super 8 Shutters Competition

It's a camera! It's a motel franchise! No! It's the number one movie of the weekend? The top summer fodder tends to be big budget blockbusters. This weekend was devoid of any new major sequel releases and therefore gave rise to a quieter, more original film nabbing first place, despite a low audience turn out.

Super 8 is a movie that's been marketed so heavily based on its surprises that it's almost impossible to really discuss without spoiling it. So I got together with Matt Patches, who liked the film better than I did, to talk it over. Below are the video results.

Operation Kino Podcast #14: Super 8 Reviewed And Nostalgia In Movies Discussed

>>Subscribe to Operation Kino and everything else Kino Katey with iTunes!<<

This week on Operation Kino we're once again gathered together in the same room, fighting against the forces of New York City noise and unbearable heat to review Super 8. Before that we've got a Lightning Round devoted to childhood summer movies. The tidbits involve some New York City boosterism, Patches finally coming around to Parks & Recreation, the necessary annual celebration of Wet Hot American Summer, and some self-promotion from Dave of the movie he produced, The Four-Faced Liar, which is now on Netflix Instant. And after the review we pick up the ball from Super 8 and talk about nostalgia in movies, how it can be both good and bad when used properly, and how a very strange food metaphor somehow can make sense of it all. We end, as always, with your answers to our lightning round question for dessert-- featured this week are Twitter users @riseb4thefall, @atonaljosh, and everyone who submitted Jurassic Park.

Take a listen below and find all your downloading options; for more from all of us, you can follow Dave (@da7e), David (@davidehrlich or @CriterionCorner), Patches (@misterpatches) and me (@kateyrich) on Twitter.
