This week on Operation Kino, we've got too much movie reviewing energy for one movie to handle, so we took on two: The Debt, the new Nazi-hunter spy movie, and Warrior, the upcoming mixed martial arts drama. We follow that with a Segment Three about our own movie-watching habits when we're at home, and wondering if the ease of using services like Netflix Watch Instantly or Hulu Plus means we don't watch as many new, out-there movies as we used to. First, though, there's a lightning round in which we join Hollywood in their revisionist history, then tidbits in which David shares what he's learned after two days of film school, Patches defends George Lucas (I know!), Katey shares what she learned watching the VMAs via Twitter, and Da7e wants Showtime to do a good job with their Under the Dome series. We end, as always, with your lightning round answers for dessert.
And one more reminder! This Monday, September 5, we'll be doing a LIVE SHOW as part of the New York Hell's Kitchen Film Festival. The FREE show happens at 7 pm at The Producer's Club, located at 358 West 44th Street. There will be a special "Film Court" debate format plus the usual lightning round silliness, and also swag, prizes, and who knows what else. If you think you'll make it please RSVP to our Facebook invite.
For now you can 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 me (@kateyrich) on Twitter.
