This week on Operation Kino, three of us have seen the new prequel to The Thing… but how do you know which three? How do you even know who to trust? You can find that out in our review segment, which leads into a wrap-up of the New York Film Festival, including David waxing rhapsodic about some foreign films you actually will get the chance to see at some point. Before any of that, though, there's our Lightning Round inspired by Footloose, then tidbits, in which Katey is looking forward to next spring's Titanic re-release, David is amazed by a work-in-progress screening of Martin Scorsese's Hugo, Patches has no idea why anyone would read the Game of Thrones books, and Da7e shares what he learned by doing a lot of reading over the summer. We wrap things up, as always, with your Lightning Round answers for dessert.
And if you're in the New York area, for New York Comic Con or no, come hang out with the entire Operation Kino crew TONIGHT, Friday October 14; we'll be at the Reunion Surf Bar at 44th Street and 9th Avenue starting at 8 pm, and would love to meet anyone who's been listening to the show.
